Aaron Glover is a young journalist who has a podcast called828-gate” which is listened by those who want to know what happened the plane and who are the 828ers.


Catches up too Ben Stone at Vance's memorial and asks for a statement but Ben refuses. Later Ben hears his podcast announcement about the up coming episode regarding the "Holy Grail." Ben visits Aaron at his studio and offers to be his "Deep Throat" informant. Later Ben gives Aaron a statement to be be used only if things go wrong.

Low and behold, true to form with the Manifest writing crew, Aaron Glover drops off the radar. What the heck? Instead of a plot line directly related to the intrigue of the plane disappearance, cover-up and conspiracy, we get Michaela and Jared having extramarital sex, Danny showing up at Ben's house to make him cry, Grace getting knocked up, and so on. 

Why? Why? Why? The "soap opera" crap is driving me crazy! I fear this show will move to daytime between "Days of Our Lives" and "As the World Turns."

Why is Aaron Glove not a frequent recurring character? The plot line is perfect!

Agreed. The plot line is perfect. But Marquis Rodriguez, the actor who portrays Aaron Glover, currently has other commitments. He recently finished filming the mini-series When They See Us. And he has a starring role in the upcoming new Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel. Perhaps, in conjunction with his commitments, he will return before Manifest ends.

... to be used only if things go wrong with the storyline? Unfortunately, Aaron Glover's storyline isn't the only one that has dropped off the radar screen. There are the 9 catatonic patients (with the synchronized herky-jerky movement) whose disappearance from the story is more mysterious than what happened to MA828 on April 7, 2013. And let's not forget the part of that storyline's missing subplot involving the "supernatural mind-link" between Marko Valeriev and Cal Stone.

The soap opera crap is driving more than you crazy. The mangled plots and subplots and storylines that disappear or lead to nowhere cause me to involuntarily shake my head on a regular basis.

The series still has the potential to be great. It's perplexing to me why the showrunner and writers keep ignoring the fact that the overwhelming majority of viewers watch Manifest because it's potentially an intriguing once-in-a-lifetime sci-fi based television series, not a touchy-feely nighttime soap ... filled with never-ending love triangles and over-the-top baby mama drama.
