The entire story of Manifest Season 3 centered around the members of the Stone family – Ben, Michaela, Olive, and Cal. Their character arcs start from how they were left off in Manifest Season 1 and Manifest Season 4.
Therefore, the best way to sum up the story of this season and how it will impact Manifest Season 4 is to summarize the character arc of all four members of the Stone family.
Ben embarks on a mission to locate his kid Cal after he touches the Flight 828 plane’s tailfin and unexpectedly vanishes, enlisting the aid of fellow passenger Saanvi in the process.
Ben is upset when the tailfin doesn’t bring back his son even though they are successful in returning it to the ocean (where it disappears once more). A second calling – a vision or voice that reveals something to them – happens as Saanvi tries to comfort Ben, and they both wind themselves on Flight 828, where they are reunited with Cal.
A downcast Cal informs them that something bad will happen, but he can’t reveal more details. “This is the way it has to be,” Cals tells Ben in one of the final scenes.
Ben is searching for Cal when his sister Michaela receives a scary call from Bethany, Eagan, and Adrian that depicts the Flight 828 plane filling with blood and implies that someone is about to pass away. Zeke, her husband, uses his newly acquired empathic ability to feel Adrian’s feelings to assist her in understanding the calling.
She later finds out that Eagan and Adrian are stirring up a bunch of commuters by stating that the Stone family is collaborating with the NSA. They consequently enter Vance’s house and end up keeping his son hostage.
Despite Michaela and Jared’s success in saving Vance’s son, she soon realizes that the killing hasn’t stopped when she receives a second call that reveals Adrian has blood on his hands.
Despite the fact that Adrian hasn’t actually killed someone, it’s implied that he unwittingly steered someone else toward doing so.
Olive puts on Ben’s ankle monitor to assist her father on his mission to return the tailfin and bring Cal home. This kept her confined to the house with her mother, Grace, and new sister Eden, throughout the conclusion.
Olive is upstairs in her room listening to music when an 828 traveler named Angelina enters secretly to steal Eden, whom she believes to be her “guardian angel.” Grace is stabbed during a conflict with Angelina, but when Olive tries to come to her aid, she discovers that Grace has been locked in her room by Angelina and is thus helpless.
When Cal starts to experience skin burns as a result of Project Eureka testing on the tailfin, it is revealed in the final episode that he has a secret link to it. According to him and his family, the only way to halt the scorching on Cal’s skin is to discontinue testing on the tailfin, which is something that none of the researchers are prepared to undertake.
Cal determines that Dr. Gupta and the other researchers must “see to believe,” so he touches the tailfin and vanishes into thin air because everyone is unwilling to listen to reason.
Cal appears to Ben, Saanvi, and Michaela on Flight 828 and warns them cryptically of impending doom, which turns out to be the passing of his mother, Grace.
In one of the last sequences, Cal arrives home at last, only to discover his mother lying lifeless on the floor. He has, however, suddenly aged five years and is no longer the age he was when Flight 828 initially took off.
As Grace dies in his arms, he tells her, “It’s okay. I know what we need to do now.”
Manifest Season 3 sets up the way the story is heading with the introduction of Angelica Meyer and her consequential actions that will have a big impact on the final season.
