Athena Karkanis - Grace Stone,  Manifest



Manifest is an American supernatural drama series created by Jeff Rake. It follows the story of the passengers of Flight 828, including members of the Stone family, who, following a brief period of severe turbulence during the journey, learn after landing that more than five and a half years have passed while they were in the air, during which they were presumed dead. As they rejoin society, the passengers begin to realize that their lives, and their loved ones, are not what they used to be anymore. Following this mysterious event, they begin to hear voices and have visions, "callings", that guide them and represent events to come. Will they ever get their lives back to normal? What happened to them during the flight?


Grace Stone, manager of a catering company, is one of the Stone family members who stayed behind in 2013, having taken the scheduled flight with her daughter, Olive, and her parents-in-law, Karen and Steve. Arriving at the airport as planned, she discovers that her husband, Ben, her son, Cal, and her sister-in-law, Michaela, have disappeared aboard the second flight, Montego Air 828. Following the trauma of the presumed death of her family, it takes Grace almost a year and a half to move on and start rebuilding her life. Five and a half years after their disappearance, their plane reappears with all its passengers, but Ben, Cal and Michaela have not aged at all. With their miracle return, Grace is now reunited with her lost family and ready to embrace the new normal - if that's even possible.
