Unanswered Manifest Questions

Many questions have been left unanswered when it comes to my favorite melodramatic science fiction television show. Hopefully, some of these questions will be answered sooner rather than later.

What caused the plane to explode on the tarmac?

Episode 101.24

Did someone on the inside of the government conspiracy plant explosives and cause MA 828 to blow up? Or was an unknown, invisible entity responsible? It’s unlikely this question will be answered anytime soon.

What did Cal see when he looked outside the plane’s window?

Episode 105.28

When everyone else on the plane was asleep, or in an induced sleep, Cal looked out the window and said, “It’s all connected.” When the answer to this question is revealed, the key to many of the puzzle pieces involving the mystery of the story will immediately fall into place.

Who is the shadow man in Cal’s family drawing?

Episode 102.15

It could be Danny. This would be the obvious answer. But the shadow man in the drawing could represent something else. Perhaps, something more sinister, i.e., an unknown and imminent danger to the Stone family.

Who has possession of Kelly Taylor’s body?

Episode 103.27

More than likely, a super-secret government agency is hiding Kelly’s body. Then maybe not. But why was her body secretly taken? For the purposes of dissecting and conducting experiments? To keep the public from knowing about what happened aboard MA 828? Inquiring minds want to know the story behind Kelly’s missing body.

Who is Danny?

His last name, what he does for a living, or anything other than he once had a wife named Nina, hasn’t been answered. Is his last name Major? I doubt it. But who is he, and what does he do for a living, are important questions. And are easy questions for showrunners to answer.

What happened to Bethany Collins?

Episode 105.15, 105.19

Everything points to her being in jail and waiting for the scales of justice to decide her fate. Now that Robert Vance is presumed dead, will she end up as a prisoner in Guantanamo Bay? Or will she be set free?

What happened to Thomas?

Episode 105.23

Bethany’s wife Georgia was last seen taking him to a safe location. Could this safe location be in the same vicinity as the safe location Fiona Clarke has taken the now freed ten passengers who were held hostage by Laurence Belson? Is it all connected?

What is the source of the callings?

Is it a single entity? Or a collection of entities? The callings could be something simple, e.g., the human counterparts (collective consciousness) of the passengers who were on the plane are using advanced technology to transmit ‘the callings’ from an alternate universe. Speculation aside, the question remains. The callings have a source and someone knows about it. When will the viewing audience know?

I’m an addicted fan of the show. But I’m having withdrawal symptoms from not getting my “obvious answers to the easy questions” fix. The need for me to find answers is becoming almost unbearable. If anyone can explain any of the unanswered questions, help. Please.

  1. Excellent point. Danny has expensive tastes. His lifestyle indicates he has a large bankroll.So, the obvious questions are: If he really loves Grace, why did he live with her instead of moving her and Olive into his luxurious home? Why did Grace go ballistic when she discovered she had to pay back Ben’s $500,000 death benefit?It makes no sense. Paul Douglas and others have astutely commented elsewhere that Danny is a predator who preys on widows at survivor group sessions. I completely agree with Paul’s theory. Based on his expensive lifestyle, Danny would definitely have the financial resources to afford a private therapist to overcome the grief of losing his wife, Nina.And because he alleges to unconditionally love Grace and Olive, and “picked up the pieces” when Ben was absent, he should have had no problem providing Grace with financial support. Nothing shows that he actually did.

  2. I really agree about Danny. He has plenty of money. Drives an expensive truck and Porsche convertible. Has all the expensive hobby toys like scuba for two, mountain bike, rock climbing equipment. Maybe it is part of Graces $500,000 and all the equity from her home. That was a lot of dough to go threw considering she had income from what is referred to as a successful catering business.

  3. Bethany Collins is out of jail. Vance probably released her when he started working with Ben.None of the other questions have been answered yet. Danny is still the most puzzling, least favorite mystery for me. Last name. Not known. Job/occupation. Unknown. Is Danny the shadow man in Cal’s family drawing? Unknown.Spoiler Alert. But here’s something that’s very interesting. It involves a search in the remote mountains of upstate New York. Will Arcadia be part of this search? What about Danny? Will he be involved?Sometimes questions lead to more questions. When it comes to Manifest, more questions could be a good thing.
