I am so happy that this season is over. And honestly this was the best episode of the season. Well, until you get to the end and you’re like WTF is actually happening.
Look, I will be the first to acknowledge that I think that the entire second season of Manifest was shit. It wasn’t even just mediocre shit. It was a steaming pile of crap set on the front step of a pig pen. People had to have been drunk writing this shit.
It was just the absolute worst.
But the season finale FINALLY wasn’t a steaming pile of shit. Instead, it was like you were slightly high and everything was funny.
But it’s still a shit show.
So, as well know the 3 meth-men of the apocalypse kidnapped Cal and told Michaela that the only way she was getting him back was if they got their stash back.
First of all, I wanna know what kinda shit is happening that these 3 got out anyways. But that’s still a different story.
Ben and Grace are understandably pissed. Michaela admits that she didn’t listen to a calling. Ben’s basically like: you should always listen. We get it Ben, with your judgy as fuck ways.
Also we get that your kids been kidnapped, so you allowed to be judgy as fuck.
Now, let’s all be real, and if any of us are seeing things in our head or hearing voices, we’re taking some good meds. Nothing wrong with some good anti-psychotics. Medication is sometimes key.
But this family is like: let’s let the voices in our head lead us into some bullshit.
Meanwhile, Olive is upstairs with Zeke. You know, man dying cause he’s freezing to death. Zeke is trying to be comforting, but me – I am like not convinced you’re cold. Why aren’t your teeth chattering?
Michaela goes to the station – cause obviously she’s gonna do anything to get her nephew back. And hey, getting a million dollars worth of confiscated meth from evidence – why not? She only can’t get it out, because you know it says she’s on leave getting married.
Here’s my thing, evidence lady – you are more worried about her getting married than the fact that she’s like we need to test a million dollars worth of meth? No wonder you’re in the evidence locker.
Of course, she’s gotta get Jared to sign off to get the drugs.
And of course he does – without knowing what is going on.
Look Jared, when – at what point – will you sack the fuck up and get your shit together? I mean, you are an asshole and I don’t like you – but I think it’s cause you’re a giant pussy.
But I am giving you a little bit of a redemption, because as soon as Michaela told you that Cal was kidnapped you were all in. For me, that made you a little less scum. But whatever.
Drug and Cal exchange goes wrong. Big surprise.
So, of course the Captain finds out and she’s going to hand them their asses on a silver platter. Michaela tries to resign, but she’s like nope, not taking your resignation. But we’re doing shit my way.
Now, do I like the Captain? Ummm, do I like anyone? Not really. But she’s a bitch and not in a bad way, so I am like lets do this. Captain is like lets do this my way.
So the cops are at Ben and Grace’s, cause they’ve got procedures.
Cal, in the meantime is a smart kid, and manipulates one of the kidnappers into being able to send his sister a message. It gives her a hint as to where he is, and they’re able to go and find Cal.
And of course Zeke comes. Why the fuck would a man who is freezing to death want to go out into the middle of nowhere and freeze? Like na bro, stay at home and die in the heat.
But I guess everything happens for a reason.
They find where Cal is and one of the Three Meth Men of the Apocalypse lets him go. When the head douche psycho says to slit Cal’s throat, they notice Cal is gone and takes off after him.
Meanwhile, Captain notices Ben and Michaela are gone. Olive admits where they are. and Captain is ready to call in the state troopers, when Grace gets more balls than anyone on this show has – and tells her to mind their own business and let them handle their shit.
Captain is put in her place and tells Jared and Michaela’s partner to go and get them.
So, back up in the freezing tundra, Cal runs out on the ice and the Three meth Men of the Apocalypse run out and then there is lighting strike when Ben and Michaela show up.
And Cal and the idiots fall through the ice.
Zeke comes up out of nowhere and dives in to save Cal. Now, I’ve never been the biggest fan of Zeke, but now he’s great. He saves Cal and then as he falls back under, makes his way to the top and is pulled out.
Who would have known that Zeke dying would be what makes him beat the death date? Oh yes, anyone who watches this show and knows how to pick up on signs. Like lets be real.
Family back together. Oh, how fabulous. No for real, that part was fabulous.
But in usual form – callings happen. Ben sees the plane explode and then some fishing boat finds part of 828 in the ocean.
Go figure, a cliffhanger.
And go figure, I don’t care.
