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’ Canceled At NBC After 3 Seasons
Flight 828 has been grounded.
NBC canceled supernatural/sci-fi/plane drama Manifest after three seasons.
After the cancellation, showrunner Jeff Rake revealed he hopes that the series gets picked up by another outlet or streaming service.
“My dear Manifesters, I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us,” Rake posted on Twitter late Monday night. “That we’ve been shut down in the middle [of a planned six-season run] is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest”
My dear Manifesters,
I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us. That we’ve been shut down in the middle is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest

Many “828ers” might be hoping for the same if they want to find out what finally happened when the flight disappeared and reappeared five years later.
*** Spoilers Ahead ***
The third season wrapped up early this week and left fans with several cliffhangers: Grace died, Angelina kidnapped baby Eden, Cal returned as a teenager, and Captain Daly returned but only briefly before disappearing with the remnants of the flight that was being rebuilt in Eureka. Read our full review HERE!
Manifest’s ratings weren’t overly impressive. According to TVLine, the season averaged a little more than 3 million viewers weekly, which was down 21 and 31% from season 2.
The problem with broadcast television is that they are so quick to drop shows without giving them a proper conclusion.
Fans deserve better, especially if they’ve been following TV’s biggest mystery for three full seasons.
Manifest is seeing a lot of buzz following its addition to Netflix, so maybe the streamer will be convinced to give it one more go?
And if no streaming service picks up the remaining seasons of the Warner Bros. production, maybe NBC will see how passionate the fanbase is and agree to a two-hour movie to wrap things up as they did with Timeless?
Please, don’t leave fans hanging! #SaveManifest
Manifest Season Finale – [SPOILER] Dies (3×12 and 3×13)
Can someone please explain what just happened?
This is the only show where so much can happen and yet, we get absolutely no clear answers.
I knew I shouldn’t have believed them when they said we would find out what happened to Flight 828, but still, I watched week after week hoping for something . . . anything.
Instead, I was left with more questions.
NBC needs to renew the show now because the finale lefts us on several massive cliffhangers. And I don’t want to see the fandom’s reaction if those questions go unanswered!
Though I’m struggling to wrap my head around what happened, there’s no doubt about it — time-travel is definitely involved!
There’s also a possibility that alternate dimensions also exist.
Those final moments of the two-hour finale kept me on the edge of my seat.
After Ben and Saanvi cruised into the middle of an electrical storm and dumped the tail fin, it disappeared without a trace.
However, it didn’t bring Cal back as they assumed it would.
Instead, they got a Calling, though this time, a very realistic one, which included Saanvi. Her Callings are back, and I’m thrilled that she’s part of the action again.
Cal was also there, but he was simply passing by and wouldn’t say more than that.
Honestly, why is it so hard for these people to just say what they mean? We don’t have to speak in riddles. It would be so much easier if Cal would just come out and say what was about to happen.
Maybe then Grace would still be alive.
As things stand, Grace was left bleeding out on the ground after Angelina stabbed her. Can you believe she actually stabbed her?
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
When Grace saw Angelina, she went into momma bear mode and died protecting Eden.
Angelina is still on the kick that Eden is her guardian angel, and she took it even further by baptizing her. It was all so weird.
The fact that Eden saw fire when she looked an Angelina leads me to my initial theory that Angelina is the devil or a symbol of evil.
Manifest Review – Everyone Turns on the Passengers (3×11)
All eyes are on the passengers of Flight 828 on Manifest Season 3 Episode 11.
As the series propels towards a season finale, the stakes are being raised for the passengers, who are informed that they are being targeted by various governments all around the world.
But it’s unclear what has triggered, or re-triggered, this sudden interest in the 828ers.
There was a time when every little thing they did was publicized and dissected, but that hasn’t really been the case as of late.
It’s possible that the resurgence of the tail fin and Ben’s arrest may have thrust them back into the spotlight, but even then, why is it a global initiative to take them down?
I can’t help but think that somehow The Major is behind this.
If you think about it, everything started when/because Saanvi killed her. That one action triggered the reappearance of the tail fin, which led to the experiments at Eureka, and thus, the natural disasters as a result of those experiments.
We know it’s all connected, so I’m taking this as a sign that The Major is somehow involved in the government’s newfound interest in the passengers.
Since Vance, the head of the NSA, wasn’t even able to get Ben out of prison, there has to be a higher player in power.
Considering the show’s use of biblical references, it almost feels similar to when everyone betrayed and turned their backs on Jesus. It’s a classic case of “fear what you don’t understand.”
It’s so serious that the government in Singapore even executed a passenger.
All of their crimes are being exaggerated in order to keep them locked up, which is making it much harder for them to follow the Callings and protect their lifeboat.
Ben made the mistake of adopting the “at all costs” mindset, which cost him his freedom.
After the clearly biased judge explained that she wasn’t going to go easy on him because he was a passenger, he pleads not guilty and his bail was set at half a million making his release almost impossible.
Grace managed to pay it off, but even after being put on house arrested, Ben still wanted to beak out and do everything in his power to save the lifeboat.
Ben never learns.
Is it possible that by being so reckless and careless, he’s the one actually sinking it?
While it’s understandable that he’s feeling the pressure of doomsday and wants to do anything he can to save himself and his loved ones, he needs to be realistic in what he’s able to accomplish.
It’s not going to help anyone if he’s behind bars again.
Maybe Ben needs to learn that it isn’t him against the world. He can and should count on the other passengers including Mick and Cal because they’re all in this together.
Ben continues to think of Cal as a child, but that’s ignorant considering Cal has been at the center of it all for years. He was forced to grow up and deal with the Callings, so why is he being brushed off now?
