Press Release:

Ben is drawn to help absolve a passenger of his guilt while Saanvi enlists help in protecting herself from the Major; Jared and Drea must extract a confession from a trio of ruthless meth dealers who would do anything to exact revenge on Michaela.

Not sure who writes these press releases but this is about the weakest yet. Nothing about the impending turmoil in the Stone household that rake has promised.

From TVLine, a quote from Jeff Rake about the season finale.
Is there any scoop you can share about Manifest? Particularly about Grace and Ben? –Alyssa (assume Alyssa is the interviewer)
“The strength of Ben and Grace’s marriage and partnership will be tested in the [April 6] season finale more than it has been since we first met them,” showrunner Jeff Rake previews. “As will the friendship between brother and sister Ben and Michaela. The s–t is going to hit the fan.” Until then, he teases, “We’ve yet to meet three of the most important characters of the season. But we will next week.”
Albeit this is about the finale but do Grace and Michaela both blow up at Ben all at once. Although it would be fun to think this will be caused by a Grace/Danny thing, I don't think so. Seems Ben is the antagonist in this one since both the Stone ladies are on his case. The thing that keeps me wondering about Danny this season are the two and only two references to the guy. First, the "chance" meeting with Grace, Olive, and Danny while shopping on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and the "let's tell everyone it's Danny's little bastard child." Second, in an interview before S2 even began, we were promised that we would see a lot more of Danny this season. Well, there better be a whole lot of Danny in the last three episodes to make that promise come true. I don't see it.
This episode seems to be episodic in that things occur and a resolution happens within 42 minutes. There doesn't seen to be any serialization that I can glean from the press release.
I suppose we will see.

Correction, Danny was mentioned three, not two times so far this season. 

1. The "chance" meeting with GraceOlive, and Danny while shopping on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

2. The "Oh by the way I miscarried, Danny's bastard kid that I agreed to have without any marriage commitment because he wanted a kid and I felt like being a whore for a while" thing.

3. The "let's tell everyone it's Danny's little bastard child" thing.

Thank you for your acceptance of my grievous error.

@MaryGrace IMHO, an unintentional, minor, and inconsequential omission doesn't constitute a "grievous error." I will always appreciate, and never fail to understand, the context of your informative and thought-provoking comments.

Thanks for helping to keep me sane. When reading a few comments around the Internet, other than comments posted on this forum, it's easy for me to understand why society works the way it does. Including how some segments of society view fictional television series like Manifest. Unlike you and others who participate on the forum here, too many pundits aren't really paying attention to what's actually happening, i.e., the evidence that's presented surrounding the characters and storylines.

The S1 timeline is a good example. For me, thanks to the tedious efforts of administration, it's what has made this site an outstanding informational resource. Grace's timeline revealed Ben and Grace had sex one-week after his return (102.23). This is confirmed because in S1E2 Michaela had earlier walked in on Grace in her bedroom talking to Danny on her cell phone ... when she told him it had been a week since she last seen him. Something which took place before Grace decided to have sex with Ben and cuckold Danny. And then cuckold Ben by having sex with Danny two-days later (104.23).

The timeline and storyline support Grace's misguided slut-like (cuckoldry) behavior. And the showrunner didn't understand why a large segment of fans "hated" Grace's character? Whether right or wrong, intended or not, some fans will always pay more attention to what's happening than others.

I can only speak for myself. But I'd like to thank you and all of the other Manifest fans everywhere who share their thought-provoking insights and humor. For me, it's makes watching the show entertaining and worthwhile. Without the thought-provoking insights and humor shared by you and others ... the members and visitors to this site; I probably wouldn't be here participating. Again, thanks MaryGrace. Keep the insightful and thought-provoking comments coming.
