I never really wanted to review Manifest Season 4 Part 2. It is one of those shows you just want to keep watching. Without any strings.

And after the stupendous previous seasons, all I wished was to be able to stream the final part for as long as I could.

Expectations were high and I know I was not alone. Millions across the globe awaited the final part of Manifest with bated breath.

However, inside our very hearts, we had our doubts. Would the ending do justice to this hell of a series?

Well, now that we are there, I am going to put the question in the present tense: Does Manifest Season 4 Part 2 fulfill the humongous expectations?

Here’s my review to try and reflect on the same (I know you are going to watch it anyway).

Manifest Season 4 Part 2 Synopsis

As the passengers try to sustain themselves at a Detention Center, the Lifeboat sinks further with the death date approaching closer.

Ben and Michaela try their best to be the captains of their sinking ship. However, the evil side of the divine consciousness creeps into the world and pushes it toward doomsday.

Created by Jeff Rake, Manifest stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Parveen Kaur, Matt Long, Daryl Edwards, Holly Taylor, Ellen Tamaki, etc.

What Works for Manifest Season 4 Part 2?

The show ably maintains the continuity of its storyline, building upon the intriguing concept established in previous seasons.

It manages to keep the viewers hooked by further exploring the mysteries and implications surrounding the passengers’ unnatural abilities.

The concept itself remains a key driver of interest, continuing to captivate audiences with its blend of mystery, drama, and, as they say, divine consciousness.

If you are having doubts about Manifest Season 4 Part 2’s screenplay, then you don’t need to worry anymore.

The series leaves no stone unturned in communicating thrill to the masses. Riding upon past backgrounds, the makers effectively balance the various storylines and character arcs within the larger narrative.

I have always maintained that writing concluding seasons is the hardest job for any writer. And those working on the script of Manifest adroitly overcome the hurdles.

Most importantly, they don’t bring new characters and instead, go to the last thread to utilize the ones at hand.

The tiny bits of stories around the well-established individuals connect with the audiences and fan bases alike.

Further flavor comes from the scintillating background score. No, I am not talking about the one playing in the scenes.

It is the beats that play in the background during the credit roll that make me go mad. There has to be a separate section of viewers who love the outro of Manifest.

Also, the video effects are taken a step ahead in Manifest Season 4 Part 2. They make things better and never seem rusty except for, of course, if you are seeking another level of genius.

What is new in Manifest Season 4 Part 2?

Well, everything is new because obviously, it is a new season altogether. Jokes apart, I think Manifest takes a lot of leaps this time around.

You’d see the show skipping time periods on so many occasions, which was not the case in the previous seasons.

It just gives an impression of how eager the makers were to finish the story. In a way, the leaps helped them avoid repetitions, which would have made things banal, to some extent.

How are the Performances?

You all know how the actors have stood up when needed in the past seasons. However, here are my observations about the performances in Manifest Season 4 Part 2.

Melissa Roxburgh continues to lead the show with style and charisma. As Michaela Stone, she captures the determination and complexity of her character, showcasing Michaela’s growth and evolution throughout the season.

Her emotional strength is one of the key takeaways from the final part of Manifest.

Josh Dallas remains the anchor of the series, delivering a strong and compelling performance as Ben Stone.

He shines and continues to amaze with the leadership qualities of his character, driving the narrative forward.

The good part is Ben Stone is not overburdened in Manifest’s last part.

J.R. Ramirez brings a sense of responsibility and composure to his portrayal of Jared. His performance showcases the growth, maturity, and evolution of Jared, starting from the beginning, adding depth to the dynamics between the various characters in the series.

Luna Blaise delivers a brilliant performance as Olive. More or less, her depiction centers around sentiments. However, the gritty aspect is also well-enshrined by Luna.

The versatile Parveen Kaur charms with her presentation of Saanvi Bahl. For the record, Saanvi is my personal favorite among all in Manifest.

Kaur’s portrayal is layered and nuanced, adding a captivating presence to the show. I still don’t understand why did the makers make her extensively invisible once again.

She just vanishes from the scheme of things for a long time. And a similar incident happened in one of the previous seasons as well.

Holly Taylor impresses as Angelina, the perfect villain who adds a sense of menace and intrigue to the show.

Taylor’s performance is convincing, making audiences believe in the presence of true evil within the narrative.

Everybody else, Daryl Edwards (Vance), Matt Long (Zeke), Ellen Tamaki (Drea), and Ty Doran (Cal), has done amazingly well to conclude the final season of Manifest.

What Doesn’t Work for Manifest Season 4 Part 2?

Well, it is really tough to point out what was off. Personally, I felt some of the flashbacks became too much after a while, especially the ones involving Michaela and Zeke.

On the flip side, I also feel they were necessary to draw parallels in the storyline.

Additionally, Manifest leaves many questions unanswered.

Should You Stream or Skip Manifest Season 4 Part 2?

Is that even a question? You have to watch it.

Will there be Manifest Season 5?

No, this (season 4) was the final season of Manifest.
