In the Manifest Season 3 premiere, we found out that the trio of meth dealers, that we thought were dead in the lake, have come back to life. How will this effect the Stone family and their callings?

This episode begins with a calling of a girl running into some angel figure. It was Angelina’s calling. Grace walks into Angelina’s room and tries to tell her that she is safe, but Angelina isn’t ready to talk yet.

Downstairs, Ben is trying to figure out how to get Vance back, as well as the tailfin. He tries to tell Grace that he wants to go back to Cuba, but she doesn’t think that this is a good idea.

Just then, there is a knock on the door. It is a group of agents from the pentagon. They want to talk to Ben.

Manifest Season 3 Episode 2: What does the Pentagon want with Ben?

Michaela goes back to the precinct and sees Jared. He wants to talk to her about a cold case, but Michaela sees a note on her desk from someone by the frozen lake.

The Pentagon wants to know why Ben was on a plane that entered US air space yesterday, but he denies being on the plane at all. Grace gets the agents to leave, and Ben still wants to figure out a way to help Vance.

Michaela was called into the precinct office by the Captain. She has given Michaela an ultimatum; follow the rules or get out. The captain also tells Michaela that Drea is her new partner.

Drea and Michaela are now looking at the footage from the lake. Michaela knows that the meth heads are back alive and immediately calls Ben.

Ben and Grace are freaked out about the meth heads returning, rightfully so. Grace thinks they might want revenge. Ben figures out that they have been dead for 84 days, which means they only have 84 days to live.

Grace wants to go to her brother’s house in a remote location, but Ben wants to stay and help Vance first.

Michaela and Drea go up to the lake area. They find a couple that has been attacked by the trio. The men have taken their camper.

At the stone house, Angelina has another calling, the same calling. Olive walks in and starts to talk to her about the callings. Olive tells her that she needs to solve it. Angelina thinks that they need to go to her old school.

Ben and Grace are ready to leave, but Olive doesn’t want Angelina to ignore the calling. The family decides to split up. Ben is going to stay back with Olive, while Grace and Cal leave.

Dr. Bahl and Zeke are at her office and Bahl confirms that Zeke is back to “normal” in all aspects of his blood work. Ben rushes in and tells Zeke and Saanvi that the meth heads are back. Zeke leaves to call Michaela and Ben tells Saanvi about the tailfin and the Pentagon.

Michaela and Drea are driving around by the lake and find the camper driving. Michaela tries to chase after it, but the leader of the pack, Jace, throws a gasoline tank out of the door and it explodes causing Michaela to crash.

Manifest Season 3 Episode 2: What will the trio figure out?

The trio in the camper is starting to put together that they have returned back to life. One of them, Pete, wants them to give themselves up, but we don’t think it is going to be that easy.

Ben calls the other man he flew home with. Ben tells him about the Pentagon visit and is then advised not to go after Vance.

Olive and Angelina go to the school. They find the window that Angelina thinks the callings are bringing her to and once she is there she thinks that she is supposed to open a time capsule. Olive starts digging, but what will they find?

Grace makes it to her brother’s cabin. Will she be let in? Nope. Now what?

Olive and Angelina get the time capsule and Angelina opens it. She finds a picture of herself at an ice cream shop, King Kone, that her parents used to bring her to. Olive thinks that she was meant to get that picture to remind her of happiness.

Ben goes to Vance’s wife. She is mad at him for dragging Vance into his mess and tells him to get Vance back at all costs. Before he leaves, Vance’s wife gives him a strange clue and Ben now thinks he can trust one of the Pentagon agents.

Olive and Angelina go to get slushes from King Kone and when they are leaving the picture falls out of Angelina’s pocket and onto the ground.

Manifest Season 3 Episode 2: Why is the King Kone important?

The trio shows up at a place where Jace used to work. He wants to rob them. But wouldn’t you know? It is the same ice cream shop, King Kone, that Olive and Angelina were at.

The trio hears their first calling. It is Cal’s voice saying “go to her.” Jace and the third guy get away, but Pete finds Angelina’s picture and he thinks that he needs to go to her.

Ben goes to visit Vance’s grave, on a hunch, and the one agent Ben thinks he can trust is also there. Ben tells him about the Cuban military and about the tailfin. Will this be enough for the Pentagon to help Vance?

Michaela and Drea arrest Pete and then they run into Olive and Angelina. They all see the picture but there is something weird. Pete explains that he and Jace are also in the picture, in the background. But what does this mean?

At the Stone house, Ben gets a message that Vance is safe. But, just then the information about the tailfin has been released to the media and the press is at their doorstep. Ben and Olive can no longer go to Grace’s brother’s house.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any weirder, Ben’s tailfin hand starts glowing. The same handprint on the actual tailfin starts glowing, as well. So what does this mean?
