Not only is the Death Date rapidly approaching for our favorite Manifest characters, it’s quickly coming for Manifesters, too. The series will come to an official end with the second half of its fourth season in June 2023 — fittingly on the Death Date: June 2.

With the countdown to the end on, we’re searching for any and all hints at what’s to come in the final batch of episodes. Luna Blaise, otherwise known as the brilliant Olive Stone, just might have spilled the beans on a particular moment fans are very eager to see.

In a recent interview with Interview Magazine, which was conducted by fellow actor and friend Alfie Allen, Blaise opened up about what it’s been like acting since she was 12, what’s next for her after Manifest, and — of course! — a tease about the show’s final episodes.

Luna Blaise filmed a monologue on Manifest’s last day

Ahead of the fan-favorite show’s June series finale, Manifesters are hunting for any tidbits that come their way about what to expect in Manifest season 4 part 2. Not too long ago, some news emerged about the show’s series finale, and we seemingly received another layer thanks to Luna Blaise.

Here’s what Blaise told Allen when asked about what the final day of filming Manifest was like:

"“Oh god. We were upstate in the woods of New York, so deep upstate. And it was actually really beautiful because we all got to be together. I was doing this very emotional monologue into a phone. Everyone was there, every cast member, every crew member. They were just watching me. When I finished, everyone clapped and my mom was there. I didn’t realize my mom would come to New York. It was really special. Then we wrapped and immediately went to PaleyFest, and we premiered our show. It was insane.”"

Wait! Luna, back up a second! An emotional monologue? On the last day of filming?! That sounds eerily similar to a previous tease from TV Line about an original cast member delivering a monologue on the last day of filming that’s played over the final moments of the series. Did we just unlock the mystery of who’s going to make us ugly cry in the series finale?! Maybe!

In some regards, the idea of Olive delivering the series-ending monologue makes so much sense. From the beginning, she was one of the original characters impacted the most by the effects of Flight 828. She might not have been on the plane, but for the time the passengers were away, she mourned the loss of her father and twin brother.

And upon their return, Olive was the only one in her family who felt like she was on the outside looking in. When Grace became pregnant with Eden, she gained the power of Callings through Eden. Olive lost the one person she related to (and then, tragically, lost her altogether). Who better to summarize the show’s message and wrap it all up than the genius, voice of reason Olive Stone?

We’ll have to wait and see whether Luna Blaise delivers THE series-ending monologue when Manifest season 4 part 2 premieres on June 2, only on Netflix!
