After much anticipation and deliberation, NBC has cleared Manifest for a third season takeoff.

Fans of the serialized drama waited patiently for months following the April season 2 finale as the network weighed its options. 

According to Deadline, the renewal boiled down to the network and the studio, Warner Bros Television, working out financial details. 

The renewal restores the hope that fans will finally find out what happened to Montego Air Flight 828, which disappeared on its way from Jamaica to New York only to land five years later without any time passing for the passengers on-board.

As the passengers are given a second chance, they also become connected through Callings that lead them on a dangerous and adventure-filled journey for the truth. 

In the finale, the cliffhanger found men at sea pulling pieces of the “missing but returned flight” from the water. 

Show creator Jeff Rake responded to the exciting news writing “Boom.” 

The official announcement also included Rake’s season 2 recap! 

The series, starring Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh, joins previously renewed shows The BlacklistChicago FireChicago MedChicago P.D., Law & Order: SVUNew Amsterdam and This Is Us.

Not all on-the-bubble dramas were as lucky. Indebted, Bluffy City Law, and Sunnyside were all canceled.

Manifest Double Episode Review – How Is Noah’s Ark Connected to Flight 828? (3×07 & 3×08)

Published

on

Manifest Review Precious Cargo and Destination Unknown Season 3 Episode 7 and Episode 8

With another double-header, Manifest Season 3 Episode 7 and Manifest Season 3 Episode 8 erupted with a few answers about the miraculous return of Flight 828. 

For starters, it’s on its way to being declared an official miracle just like Noah’s Ark, which begs the question: are the passenger’s saints or angels? Is that why they’re glowing?

The series has always had religious undertones, but connecting it to the vessel that saved Noah, his family, and his animals takes it to a whole other level. 

Though, I guess it does explain all the guest appearances from the peacock.

The revelations started when Saanvi realized that the passengers and the recently deceased Meth Heads shared the same DNA anomaly of sapphire.

This led to the delivery of driftwood from the Vatican (the place that has the power to declare miracles). The driftwood was described as the only specimen on the planet coated with the same sapphire compound.

And it’s location led Saanvi to discover that it was likely a piece from Noah’s Ark.

Now, I’m not going to pretend that I understand why Flight 828 and Noah’s Ark are connected (and if you do, let me know in the comments), but the fact that Ben spent much of the episodes preserving their “lifeboat” — preventing passengers from doing something that would result in all of their deaths — wasn’t lost on me.

I also looked into the meaning of sapphire in the bible and found that it was once believed that the stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed were made from sapphire. 

Do with that what you will, my friends.

Maybe Ben is about to issue commandments to all of the 187 passengers?

Micromanaging so many people into diligently following the Callings and behaving appropriately sounds like a tall, impossible order. 

Ben is up for the challenge, but it doesn’t seem like the rest of the passengers are all too eager for him to be their “shepherd.”

That reference wasn’t lost on me either. 

Of course, there’s also a scientific aspect to what happened to Flight 828 as both the driftwood and the tailfin were triggered by a seismic event, which Saanvi notes was caused by a dormant volcano that wasn’t registered in any databases. 

It’s described as invisible just like the lightning that Captain Daly believed struck the plane. 

All I know is, I’m glad they’re addressing Daly and Fiona because it means that we’ll eventually get some answers as to what happened there. 

Initially, I thought that maybe Flight 828 flew over Mount Arat on its way from Jamaica to New York, but the flight plan wouldn’t track.

So, maybe the lightning — which we also saw with Al Zuras — is responsible for the volcanos?

Again, please let me know if I’m totally off base here! 

Explosions and fire aren’t new for the series as Ben and some of the other passengers continue to have visions of Flight 828 exploding. 

And I’m going to go on a limb and say that the fire in the Calling that led Mick and Ben to Rachel and Hannah wasn’t a coincidence either. 

The volcano is the new peacock!

Manifest Double Episode Review – Sayonara, Methheads! (3×05 and 3×06)

Published

on

Manifest Review Water Landing and Graveyard Spiral Season 3 Episode 5 and 6

Manifest hit us with an action-packed doubleheader.

The episode was filled with dramatic fight scenes, Grace covered in blood and holding a shotgun, and an NSA agent getting shot in the head. 

And that was just the tip of the iceberg. 

There’s no denying it — Manifest Season 3 Episode 5 and Manifest Season 3 Episode 6 were intense and gave us new and unexpected insight into the death date and the Callings.

But don’t be fooled . . . as per usual, one answer leads to a plethora of new questions. 

Even the ending, which saw the methheads dying together, remained vague as Ben declared: “We were so very wrong.”

Jace was the only one of the methheads that wasn’t redeemed, but he wasn’t the only one to die. 

Initially, everyone thought he’d be the only one to meet a permanent fate since he continued down a destructive path while the others made the most of their second chance.  

Pete helped Ben track his brother and save his family, plus, he found love with Angelina. 

Meanwhile, Kory helped save Cal by coming to tell him to stop reciting the nursery rhyme as it led Jace right to him. 

They both proved that in their second go-around, they would make better choices. 

And yet, it didn’t matter.

After Jace died by throwing up lake water, the other two consumed by his shadow figure.

I know that the shadows come with the territory, but they were a little too animated and cheesy for my taste.

I also can’t say that I’ll miss the methheads. We were supposed to be touched by Pete’s redemption arc and love story with Angelina, but it just didn’t have the same pull as Mic and Zeke’s survivor love story. 

Kory barely made a dent in the storyline aside from being a cool dude. 

As for Jace, well, the world is better off without him. 

Olive’s discovery that they “all came back together so they will all be judged together” does change things for the passengers of Flight 828. 

Up until now, they thought that following the Callings individually and being good people would lead them to defeat the death date.

But if they are all being judged collectively, staying alive is going to be much harder.

One bad apple can ruin it for everyone. And we already know that there’s someone out there — looking at you, Eagan — that’s doesn’t have pure intentions for following the Callings. 

The revelation from the Egyptian symbols may have been shocking, but in hindsight, I feel like the signs were all there. 

After all, the series keeps pounding the fact that it’s all connected. If that’s the case, why wouldn’t the fates of the passengers be connected as well?

Manifest Review – Tailspin (3×04)

Published

Manifest Tailspin review season 3 episode 4

Vance wasn’t lying when he referred to the NSA’s 828 investigation room as “eureka.”

Much of Manifest Season 3 Episode 4 focused on the mystery surrounding what happened to Flight 828 and the tailfin, and it was a lot to process. 

We were bombarded with plenty of information, but as usual, with every answer, several new questions arose. 

It’s almost like we can’t ever get ahead of the mystery; we’re always two steps behind as we try to piece together all the clues. 

Ben, Saanvi, and Mic have been trying to figure this out on their own, but it’s evident that there’s so much at play here that even a robust team of government researchers and scientists has been struggling to come up with any plausible theories. 

For starters, Vance’s team proved what Ben suspected all along: the tail fin is an original part of 828. 

And it apparently teleported to the bottom of the sea on the same night that Zeke beat the death date and the methheads drowned in the lake.

Yep, teleported. 

That was also the same night and time that Saanvi killed The Major, which lead her to believe that the events were somehow related and intensified her guilt. 

The connection between all the events remains unclear much like the connection between the passengers and the non-passengers. 

The recovered tailfin also showed signs of corrosion that was consistent with having spent seven years in saltwater. 

How is it possible that the tailfin is showing signs of original wear and tear?
