Goofs

The police investigating Cal's disappearance/abduction make multiple elementary mistakes.

First, they allow Ben to speak to his wife before they have questioned him. Since he was not in the home at the time the child's disappearance was reported and since he is separated from his wife and does not have primary custody of his son, he is automatically the prime suspect in Cal's disappearance, and police should immediately question him without any other family members present.

Second, the police allow Ben and Grace to be alone together in a room in the house from which the child may have been abducted. If the parents were somehow involved in their child's disappearance, this would give them time to concoct a story, give each other alibis, and/or disturb or remove incriminating forensic evidence. Police never allow witnesses and especially suspects to speak to each other before each has been questioned separately.

Finally, and perhaps most egregiously, the police allow Ben, Grace, and Michaela to walk around Cal's room. There is plenty of forensic evidence that could be disturbed, even inadvertently, by people walking around a room. Realistically, the police should have cleared everyone from the house upon arrival to allow the CSI techs total access to as clean a crime scene as possible. See more »

Vanishing Point
29 March 2019 | by snowflakeaudreySee all my reviews

Manifest's "Vanishing Point" is excellent - the best episode since the Pilot. I can honestly say that I wasn't bored during a single moment of this episode, and I found it to be quite compelling and well-written.

A couple episodes ago, we were introduced to a few new storylines: Michaela's visions and the all-knowing "Major" giving orders and manipulating Autumn into spying on the Stones in order to get to Cal (the "Holy Grail"). I was positive that this storyline would be as dragged out as the missing passengers, but to my immense surprise and delight, they started to wrap it up almost immediately and deliver some much-needed answers!

So far, the second half of the season has been loads better than the first, and it's showing a chance for redemption for "Manifest" - as long as the storylines continue to be full-speed ahead without the family drama and sappiness.

I give "Vanishing Point" an 8/10 - my best rating for this series yet.
