Michaela meets co-workers
SERGEANT: As I live and breathe.
MICHAELA: Hey, Sarge. Getting a lifetime supply of hugs.
SERGEANT: Of course you are. Come back from the dead, you’ve earned yourself a hug. Didn’t expect you getting back to work this fast.
MICHAELA: Probably not quite yet, assuming I actually still have a job here.
SERGEANT: Technically, you still remain on desk duty. I’m guessing we can drum up a desk for you when you’re ready.
Episode pilot hints at much more to come
To its credit, the pilot of Manifest only hints at a car accident and a girl named Evie, leaving the rest enticingly vague. Even the fact that she has desk duty upon returning to the police force seems tangentially related.

Michaela meets Jared
JARED: You’re so young. You look exactly the same.
MICHAELA: Yeah. You look even better. I don’t know how men do that.
JARED: I’m sorry I didn’t come to the airport. I’m lead detective on this abduction case. Every hour counts.
MICHAELA: Detective? Wow.
JARED: A lot has changed since you’ve been gone.
Jared’s wedding ring
No, don’t look at his left hand!! Shoot, she looked, and saw the wedding ring before he could get his hand in his pocket. Real brave guy.
MICHAELA: Who is she? [SIGHS]
MICHAELA: That makes sense. She always told me how lucky I was.
Jared: Why the guilt?
Dude, if you don’t think you did anything wrong, then own it. Why the guilt, since Michaela was supposedly dead? It’s not really that weird for you and the best friend to have bonded over the mutual loss, especially since Michaela tells us that Lourdes always had a thing for you. You waited a more than reasonable amount of time before getting together. So, again, why the guilt? Either Lourdes is still second choice because Michaela is his soulmate, or he’s hiding some other secret.
