Manifest Season 2 Explained: What Went On? [SPOILERS]

Manifest Season 2 Explained_ What Went On_ [SPOILERS]

One of the nuggets of development that you will see in Manifest Season 2 is the character arc of Zeke. Along with it, the entire concept of the Death Date gets explained in detail.

We find out that the Death Date is the date a resurrected person will die again. This date will happen after some time – which is equivalent to the time spent between the death of a person and their resurrection. It’s also stated that the person will also die in the same way they previously died.

As Zeke’s Death Date approaches, he starts getting frostbitten – the same way he died while he was trapped in the glacier. However, while trying to save a kidnapped Cal Stone, he was somehow able to save Cal – and himself.

This led to the revelation that if you follow the Calling, you will apparently find new ways to defeat your Death Date.

Another important event that happened in Manifest Season was Saanvi killing the Major. While the Major was churning out to be one of the main antagonists of the show, she was killed off by Saanvi. However, while Saanvi did poison the Major, she didn’t intend to. This is bound to have major consequences on her character and the story in Manifest Season 3 and Manifest Season 4.


Now that you know about what went on in Manifest Season 2, are you stoked to watch the remaining seasons now? If you ask me. I am definitely excited to watch this series till the end! As I watch them, I will write a post about it soon!
