And they lived happily ever… until they didn’t.
Mic and Zeke’s wedding was a beautiful celebration, but their happiness was shortlived on Manifest Season 2 Episode 12 because their honeymoon was interrupted by the three looming shadow figures that have been threatening the Stone family for several episodes.
But before we get into the “disaster” that stemmed from Mic’s decision to not follow the Callings, let’s talk about the wedding.
It went off without a hitch aside from Mic’s brief “cold feet” — and I love how Zeke worked that into a joke since he’s actually freezing to death.
For #TeamZeke fans, the wedding was a celebration of life and love.
Mic hesitated a bit before the wedding because she was scared. Usually, weddings are supposed to celebrate the beginning of a long road ahead for a couple, but Mic couldn’t envision a future with Zeke because they didn’t have a cure for the death date.
He accepted that he was dying while she wanted him to fight for his life.
Mic wanted a “sign” to point her in the right direction, and she got it when Ben’s Calling led him to a consignment shop where he found his mother’s veil.
The veil confirmed what she already knew to be true: she wanted to marry Zeke more than anything.
For those of you that have been #TeamJared, well, you were in the same boat as Jared: you wanted to be happy for Mic, but it was hard to watch.
In the penultimate episode, Zeke only had 2 days left to live, which meant everything was expedited.
Jared was taken aback by Mic’s announcement that she was getting married (likely because he was still holding out hope that they would get back together), but he figured that he would support her on her “big day.”
Sadly, when he saw her in that wedding dress, you could see the pain it caused him. My heart broke for him.
He has wanted to be in Zeke’s shoes for the longest time, and he couldn’t stand by and watch the love of his life walk down the aisle and marry another man.
After the intimate celebration, Mic and Zeke got ready for their honeymoon, which also doubled as Zeke’s hoorah. It’s incredibly morbid, and I’m kind of glad it was interrupted.
They didn’t get too far before they got the call that poor Cal was taken by the three meth heads.
Manifest: Ben Stone Reveals He “Knows” What Happened to Flight 828 in New Trailer
Alright, time to give us the deets, Ben Stone.
In a new trailer hyping the return of Manifest Season 3 on April 1, the patriarch of the family tells former NSA agent Vance that he “knows what happened to Flight 828.”
The trailer then shows Ben getting a reverse-vision (or Calling) of the plane blowing up as it nose dives into the water, which would make sense considering that in the final moments of season 2, fisherman pulled out what seems to be the tail fin of the doomed flight.
His theory: “I think we died on that flight.”
Of course, that raises even more questions than it answers, though the trailer promises to “reveal the truth.”
If they died, how are did they return five years later? Where did they go for those five years?
Are the Callings premonitions or memories and flashbacks? Is their time on back limited by a “death date” that we thought was avoidable?
Let’s hope TV’s biggest mystery answers our burning questions… but until then, re-watch this promo over and over as you try to drum up your own theory that would make Ben proud!

‘Manifest’ Season 3 Poster Teases the Tailfin Mystery: “The Truth Will Surface”
If you’ve spent the past year wondering what happened to Flight 828, you’re not alone.
But it looks like Manifest Season 3 will begin to divulge some answers and unravel the mystery. (At least we hope so.)
NBC released the first poster for the upcoming third season – which premieres on April 1, 2021 (no, not an April Fools joke) – and it focuses heavily on the tailfin fished out of the water in the final moments of Manifest Season 2.
For those that need a little refresher, a tailfin from a Montego Air flight was found by the fishermen in a massive body of water indicating that the flight that we saw land at the kickstart of season 1 did, in fact, crash five years ago.
Understandably, this raised so many questions… on top of the questions we already had. How did the plane return if it crashed? How are the passengers alive? Are the passengers even the passengers?
The season 3 poster focuses heavily on the tailfin and features the tagline: “the truth will surface.”
With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that the season will seemingly address the mystery of the tailfin and how it ended up underwater as it connects to Flight 828.
Show creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm this by explaining: “From literally the opening shot of Season Three, we’ll see the Tailfin lure our heroes even deeper into the mystery of Flight 828.”
Of course, the first episode of season 3 is aptly titled “Tailspin.” Is that a hint that the plane dived into the ocean?
Or will the episode and the mystery take us on a whirlwind of a descent?
And while no synopsis is provided for now, there is this photo of Josh Dallas who plays Ben Stone.
That’s a very tropical outfit for Ben, wouldn’t you say?
The mystery of the tailfin thickens because since Flight 828 landed five years after it took off from Jamaica, there’s no reason for it to be underwater.
Plus, we saw the plane explode in front of all the passengers when they received a collective “calling.”
There have been several theories about the existence of the tailfin, however.
There’s a chance that the tailfin could belong to a decoy plane used by the government since we know they’re involved. Could this be what exposes them?
Maybe they wanted people to think that the plane sunk and took the real thing to inspect? But the government wouldn’t be reckless enough to dump the real thing in the ocean, would they?
Users pointed out that when the plane exploded, it didn’t actually show the tailfin getting destroyed, so it’s possible it was dumped into the ocean to destroy evidence.
However, another interesting point is that the tailfin being pulled out of the water and the one from the exploding plane look different. It could be another side of the fin, it could be a filming continuity error, or it might not be the same tailfin at all.
Personally, I think it looks like it would be from an older model aircraft, so maybe it’s from a plane that crashed prior?
I’m into the theory that it’s from an alternate reality, but the fishermen are fully aware that Flight 828 returned, so we know that this timeline exists alongside the passengers and in the same dimension.
Rake had this to say about the tailfin if it offers you any insight: “We saw that plane land in New York. We saw that plane blow up on the tarmac at the end of the pilot. So how can a plane have landed and been exploded and then also be found at the bottom of the ocean? Once the entire world finds out about this tailfin, that’s going to re-trigger the global scrutiny and paranoia about Flight 828 and its passengers.”
Could it be that the passengers aren’t even real? Rake has considered it: “Does this mean that the passengers are not the passengers? And if they’re not the passengers, who are they? That’s going to be a season-long, science-based, science meets mythology investigation. For those who have been feeling that the episodes have become a little science-light or investigation-light, they have a lot of good material coming down the pike.”
Clearly, there’s plenty of avenues for the series to take here.
Hopefully, the season gives us some answers to the central mystery at the core of NBC’s most thrilling series.
We’ll see you back here on April 1!
