Are Fiona Clarke and Bill Daley dead or did they fly through time?
Based own his own aviation research, Capt Daley assumed that he and Dr. Clarke would fly through time into the future, 2024 to be precise. But it's possible they could have also flown back into the past?
That is, if they aren't already dead. It was suggested the aircraft they were on was shot down by F-16 fighter jets. But there was no confirmation their bodies or aircraft wreckage was found.
There was also no valid reason to shoot down the aircraft. It wasn't a threat, nor was public safety an issue.
But if they are dead, will the history of their efforts to discover the truth be falsified by government conspirators? Will they be now both become the public scapegoats for Flight 828's disappearance. Will they also be labeled the Crackpot Pilot and Mad Scientist?
Will their actions be alleged to be those of terrorists? Will there be claims that Daley and Clarke has placed explosives and unknown chemicals on the plane. And were targeting some made-up location?
On the other hand, are Clarke and Daley really dead? Or did they fly to another time and another place? Will we see them again? Or have we seen them for the last time? What do you think?
If Fiona and Daly did fly through time, the chances of them returning to show any time soon is next to zero, i.e., if they return at all. Frank Deal, who portrays Bill Daly, is involved in other projects, including an upcoming television series ... The Outsider.
Francesca Faridany, who plays Fiona Clarke, hasn't been as busy as Deal, but who knows what she's currently doing. Or will be doing in the future. Or if her schedule will coincide with Deal's in order to film future episodes of Manifest together.
The roles of Clarke and Daly aren't the only ones affected. Elizabeth Marvel (The Major) will appear in 8-episodes of the upcoming television series Unbelievable. Marquis Rodriguez (Aaron Glover) is headed for stardom on the upcoming and Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel.
Frank has only signed on for two episodes it seems, and it likely won't be filmed for awhile, so he'll be okay unless Untitled Gamer Comedy Show gets picked up and it turns out he's a regular (which I doubt). Francesca will be likely be fine for the time being.
Marvel is going to be really hard, but since they probably had some sort of contract for her Manifest must have been okay with this meaning they plan on shoving this amazing actress and interesting character in the background again,
Agreed. They must to do whatever's needed to make sure Marvel appears in season 2. Pushing season 2 back to midseason is not a problem. Premiering in midseason also means not having to compete with Monday Night Football.
As it pertains to the storyline, it appears that Faridany's return in her role as Fiona Clarke is highly unlikely ... unless she's needed in flashbacks. Without Marvel and Faridany's presence, the show will lose a lot of the energy and buzz it had generated in season 1.
