Manifest season 4 part 2 review: Mediocre mystery drama delivers an epic finale

In Manifest season 4 part 2, Ben and Michaela have nine months to come up with a solution to save the 828ers from their impending death. The second part of Manifest season 4 is now streaming on Netflix.


The Registry is keeping the 828ers in a detention center. They are studying them while also attending and solving their Callings. When Cal’s dragon scar starts glowing again, Ben and Michaela take the hint that they need to hurry.

In the next nine months, Ben and Michaela need to figure out a way to save the 828ers before their Death Date. The task would not be easy, as Angelina is still alive out there. Much like Cal, even she has Omega Sapphire embedded in her body.

Angelina seeks to take the 828ers past their Death Date. She sees this as the cleansing of the world and the beginning of a new one.

With the likes of Director Zimmer not listening to them, the 828ers will have to work together while also addressing their Callings, which they hope will ensure their survival.

The main cast of Manifest has been consistent with their performances since the very first season. Nothing seems to have changed.

Though they manage to express the emotion these characters carry, the sloppy writing often affects their performance. The viewers will find their monologues and their words odd at times.

For example, the chemistry Melissa Roxburgh, who plays Michaela Stone, and J.R. Ramirez, who plays Jared, share is beautiful. Unfortunately, the way their relationship is rebuilt is as generic and laughable as it can get.

Ty Doran’s portrayal of Cal is to be applauded. Doran does introduce a more mature and responsible Cal, unlike Jack Messina’s version of the character, which mostly irked the viewers by not disclosing much.


The second part of Manifest season 4 is all about execution. The show doesn’t dive much deep into the history of its supernatural elements, yet somehow it makes the story interesting with everything taking place in the present.

Ben and Michaela’s relationship takes center stage during the second part. They both lost loved ones in the form of Grace and Zeke. The show justifies them being the co-captains as they do stand out as formidable leaders.

The show successfully captures the emotions and hardships the 828ers are facing as they are trapped inside detention centers, away from their family and friends.

The approach to forming a bond between them is slow and heart-warming. By the end, Manifest presents a family made up of the 828ers.

The finale is epic, and the writers have worked really hard to deliver a strong and satisfactory conclusion. It almost feels like things come full circle and a new mystery is born out of it. On top of that, the story also hits the right emotions.


Since it’s the final season, Manifest should have dropped its old format, which is identical to crime procedurals. This format does nothing but stretch the episodes out while sidelining the main storyline.

Even when the show is nearing the finale, it is trying to capture the characters addressing the Callings in detail. By now, the viewers know how the investigation into the Callings works, so there is no need to show the whole scenario.

Every scene in Manifest season 4 part 2 continues to come with some additional twists and problems that could have been easily skipped. Lastly, the dialogue work in the first half is of low effort and hardly digestible. It would have been suitable if this show was on TV.


Manifest season 4 part 2 manages to give a satisfactory and absolutely thrilling end to the show. While it retains some of its negative aspects, die-hard fans are now used to them and will care more about the fitting conclusion the characters have received, and the show doesn’t disappoint there.
