2. Will Michaela and Jared get back together?

We all knew that everyone was going to have moved on in some way. They all believed the people on the plane were dead. The first person we find out has moved on is Michaela and Ben’s mom. She’d died.

However, some have just moved on in their love lives and one of those is Jared. This has instantly set up a love triangle in Manifest and we haven’t even met the other person yet. Michaela still loves Jared and he’ll now find himself torn.

It’s interesting that we haven’t met his fiancee yet, although we did find out it’s Michaela’s best friend. Jared could have lied. What if the best friend had moved away so wouldn’t be in touch with Michaela? This leads me to the last question.

1. Who is Ben’s wife now dating?

The other person to move on in terms of relationships was Ben’s wife. It’s obvious that this has to be someone we’ve met already. Olive knows who it is and knows that it’s going to be difficult for all.

You can’t blame Grace for moving on. She believed her husband was dead for five and a half years.

We’re assuming she’s in love with someone else. There’s the chance that this is something darker like she’s got mixed in with a loan shark or something because of Ben and Cal’s assumed deaths. But moving on seems more likely.

Could it be Jared? Did he lie to Michaela and it’ll turn out he moved on with Grace? How about the doctor we met? What about Michaela’s captain or someone connected to Ben at his former workplace?

There are many possibilities, but I feel like we’ve probably already seen the character somewhere.
