This article contains spoilers through the Manifest series finale.

After keeping viewers captivated since 2018, Manifest finally reached its thrilling conclusion as season 4 part 2 landed on Netflix on Friday. While the series answered most of our burning questions regarding the mystery of Flight 828 and whether passengers could survive the Death Date, it did leave viewers with many questions regarding the show’s arc and whether some deaths were necessary. 

For most of the last ten episodes of Manifest, flight 828 passengers found themselves locked in a detention center by the Registry because of public fear and the government wanting to do scientific experiments on them. The passenger’s position in the detention center hindered their ability to solve their callings and figure out what needed to be done to help them survive the Death Date. 

It became clear very early on in Manifest that not everyone would survive to see the end of the show, especially as Manifest is known for its shocking and often brutal deaths. The deaths in season 4 were no different; however, one in particular, did give the shocking and heart-breaking season three death of Grace Stone (Athena Karkanis) a run for its money as showrunners killed off Cal Stone (Ty Doran) in the penultimate episode.
