*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
It’s been almost two weeks since Netflix surprised us all and renewed Manifest for season four after it was previously canceled by NBC. However, there’s still one burning question that hasn’t been answered: What’s the deal with Cal?
To fully understand what’s to come, let’s discuss what happened in the season three finale. Against his family’s wishes, Cal (Jack Messina) agrees to visit the Flight 828 tailfin, which is believed to be the key to his Callings. When he touches the debris, Cal suddenly vanishes.
Later on, Grace (Athena Karkanis) is on her death bed when she’s visited by Cal, who says he now understands what needs to be done. The problem? Cal is no longer a little boy—instead, he’s a 17-year-old (played by Ty Doran), which is the age Cal would have been had the plane not disappeared.
