Secrets and lies threatened the lifeboat on Manifest Season 3 Episode 9, but not before we were served up bleeding eyes, floods, earthquakes, and more!
What an insane episode.
If you watch Manifest online, you’re familiar with the Dark Cloud Calling, which loomed large once again to send a warning that Eureka is the epicenter of sketchy activity and answers.
All the pieces are slowly but surely falling into place, but now, it’s up to the 828’ers to make sense of everything.
And that’s where it gets a bit tricky.
There’s a lot at play here as the Callings connect to science, the Bible, and Egyptian mythology all at the same time.
From where I’m standing, it seems like Saanvi and the team at Eureka are playing with fire.
While trying to solve the mystery of what happened to Flight 828, Saanvi successfully made the fragment of Noah’s Ark vanish using simulated dark lightning.
“God isn’t the only one who can create a miracle,” was the line that stood out to me because playing God never ends well.
And trying to recreate divine actions likely comes with a price.
However, this is the first real explanation that we have for Flight 828 disappearing and coming back five years later, so maybe it’s worth the risk?
It also seems that the key to these seismic events is a returned passenger since no one else was able to accomplish what Saanvi did on her first try.
As for what all of this means. . . I have no clue. And I’m no longer trying to figure it out.
Instead, I just strap in each week and enjoy the insanely wild ride.
Ben, Eagan, and Mick also shared a Calling that included a flood and a lion. I thought it was trying to tell them about the driftwood and Noah’s Ark, but Mick didn’t seem too phased by the revelation.
Instead, they assumed that the lion that was bleeding tears was warning them about a lie.
When she saw Saanvi’s eyes bleeding, she realized that Saanvi was keeping something from them, which was threatening all of their lives.
After Saanvi came clean about what she did to The Major, she was miraculously cured. The episode had its fair share of miracles, that’s for sure.
Ben then found the Al-Zuras journal and saw Saanvi’s picture in it (that still makes me laugh out loud) and figured that in order to preserve the Lifeboat, some people who posed a threat would have to make personal sacrifices and jump off.
In this case, Saanvi was causing a leak in the Lifeboat, so she jumped ship.
When she came clean, order was restored.
But then Grace took it a step further and suggested maybe people were being pushed off the Lifeboat, which then opens up another can of worms.
Could the Callings be evil?
Also, does Saanvi have to get arrested in order to make amends?
Mick knows that Saanvi didn’t mean to kill The Major, and there’s no denying that The Major was a pretty terrible person who did awful things to the passengers. In a way, Saanvi saved all of them. That has to count for something, right?
With Saanvi’s skills, I think the NSA will vouch for her and she won’t have to go to jail.
It’ll take time for her soul to heal from what she did, but at least she was able to get it off her chest finally.
‘Manifest’ Officially Saved by Netflix For Fourth and Final Season
Happy Manifest Day — Manifest has officially resurrected.
Much like the passengers of Flight 828, the plane drama has been saved by Netflix for a fourth and final supersized season.
The upcoming season will feature a whopping 20 episodes, and will likely be split into parts.
“Couldn’t let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated. Manifest will officially return for a super-sized fourth and final season, only on Netflix,” the official Twitter page posted.

The exciting news was announced on August 28, 8/28, better known as Manifest Day.
“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime,” showrunner Jeff Rake said in a statement. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”

The cast immediately took to social media to share their excitement!

NBC initially grounded the supernatural drama over the summer following an intense season three finale that left fans with several jaw-dropping cliffhangers.
We even put together a list of questions that we need answered immediately!
Fans campaigned heavily on social media to save the series, but neither NBC nor Netflix budged, with the latter passing on the drama even after its first two seasons hit and stay at the top spot for several weeks.
However, fans weren’t backing down, and even some big celebrities began tweeting about their obsession with the show.
Netflix eventually realized that they were making a huge mistake by not picking up the series, and the rest, well, that’s history.
We’re thrilled the series is getting a second chance at life, just like the passengers.
Now… we’re going to binge-watch the first three seasons until season 4 is ready for takeoff!
Which ‘Manifest’ Character Is Your Soulmate?
Since Manifest was officially saved by Netflix for a fourth and final season, there’s no better time to find out which character would be your soulmate!
Do you connect most with an 828-er? A family member of the returned? Or someone involved with helping the truth come to light?
Take the quiz now to find out!
Will ‘Manifest’ Be Renewed on August 28?
Manifest month is officially upon us, but will it bring the good news that we’re all expecting/ hoping for?
Jeff Rake was eager to remind fans about the exciting month on Twitter, which was also accompanied by a countdown to 828.
“26 days until 828. Happy Manifest Month,” he wrote.
26 days until 828. Happy Manifest Month!#SaveManifest

While the tweet seems innocent enough, many fans assumed the showrunner was hinting at the possibility of a renewal being announced on 8/28 (August 28).
The newfound hope comes as things are looking up for the recently-canceled drama.
Fans (including big household names like Stephen King and Kourtney Kardashian) rallied to save the plane drama after it was canceled at NBC after just three seasons.
The third season finale left audiences hanging with several major cliffhangers.
To add salt to the wound, Netflix passed on the opportunity to pick the series up for another season.
The streaming giant likely should’ve waited to see how the first two seasons of the series would perform on its platform before making any decisions.
If they had a Calling informing them that the series would stay in the Top 10 for several weeks, they would’ve likely picked up the series.
With everyone boarding the Manifest train, renewal talks amongst the networks have been restarted.
Rake has been communicating and connecting with fans, old and new, on social media via the #SaveManifest movement.
At the end of July, the series creator seemed pretty confident that some form of closure — whether it be a fourth and final season or TV movie — was imminent.
Tweeting “if/when the good news comes” means that Rake is likely aware that something big is in the works if all the cards fall into place.
— Jeff Rake (@jeff_rake) July 30, 2021
Since “it’s all connected” on the series, August 28 quite literally lends itself to a brilliant PR/marketing move.
As one Redditor noted, “if this isn’t how we find out then we have a major missed opportunity on our hands.”
While that means we have to wait just a smidge longer for the news, it’ll be all worth it in the end if it means we finally get some much-needed answers.
Your move, NBC or Netflix. Or maybe Roku, the service in talks to give Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist another chance!
