Watching Manifest is a bit like trying to solve a never-ending puzzle. No matter how much progress you make, you’re still left with a bunch of random, intricate pieces that don’t seem to fit with the rest of the picture. The show starts off with a plane that miraculously reappears after going missing for five years, and none of its passengers have any idea that much time has passed—or what happened to them. But it only gets stranger from there, and each plot twist only raises more questions about what’s really going on.
So naturally, when I binged all three seasons of this series, I over-analyzed everything, from mundane interactions and cryptic Biblical references to bizarre plot twists. And I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to unpack “it’s all connected,” the vague catchphrase of one of the once-missing passengers, Cal Stone. Still, I admit, I’m no less confused than I was when I started watching season one. But after hearing that the show was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season, I thought, Finally, I’ll get some solid answers. At least, I hope so.
Until then, I’ve come up with a few Manifest theories of my own, from the implications of Grace’s shocking death to Captain Daly’s mysterious disappearance. Keep reading for all the predictions.
