What is the Truth to Own Up?
Jeff Rake [Manifest’s creator/writer] cleverly placed the scene in such a way that immediately after Michaela puts up the message, it is Grace who sees it. The phrase “own your truth” continues to resonate throughout the episode. While the phrase might seem like a persuasion for the characters to own up to the fact that they were actually dead for almost five years, it might also indicate that eventually, they have to accept the truth that death will come for everyone.
