Ben, Olive, Mic, and the rest of the passengers scored a huge win on Manifest Season 2 Episode 8, but they have to remember to keep their guard up because the walls are closing in on them as the hatred and fear for “their kind” continues to bubble up under the surface.
For starters, it’s probably best that they keep everyone at arm’s length and don’t trust anyone in their home.
Ben is a kind man, but he has to be cautious because even those that seem to have good intentions can be trying to stab you in the back.
For example, Simon White, the leader of the X’ers who Ben believes is his kind boss at the University. Meanwhile, we know he doesn’t have the Stone family’s best interests in mind and proved that when he snuck into Ben’s 828 cave and took pictures of all of his findings.
Why doesn’t Ben have a lock on that door?! White got his hands on way too much information, which will only fuel his desire to put humanity first to make the nation “greater, safer, and stronger” for the humans.
According to the X’ers, the passengers threaten that mission and are walking time bombs that need to be exposed for what “they really are.” I wonder what White thinks that is exactly.
He’s not entirely wrong about the ticking time bomb part since they do have an expiration date that they’re trying to find a way to get rid of.
But other than that, White and his followers have based their accusations on nothing other than fear — they’re you’re run-of-the-mill bigoted hate group, which is dangerous.
We saw what someone who “believed” in the passengers was capable of doing, and there’s no telling how far the X’ers are willing to go.
For that reason, I think Jared is working undercover to figure out what they’re planning so that he can find a way to stop them.
Of course, to do that he had to get cozy with them, which means leaking classified information, dating Tamara, shaving his head, etc.
However, he doesn’t seem very good at staying undercover because not only did Mic catch onto him but so did Drea.
I’d understand if Mic realized Jared was acting weird and different because she knows him on a deeper level and learned he was snooping around her case files, but if Drea’s catching on then it means Jared’s not doing a good job at covering his tracks.
While they really want audiences to believe Jared is a mole and a traitor, the scene between him and Captain Bowers after Mic gives her the evidence seems to prove that he’s working the case with her approval.
Bowers didn’t seem concerned that Jared went rogue, and Jared didn’t seem concerned that Bowers knew. They both seemed more concerned that Mic foiled the operation.
Billy has always been a little wary of Jared, and Mic’s visit there to rile them up gives him additional reasons to doubt him.
And it’s unfortunate because Jared was getting close — he even got some recognition from Simon White.
If it’s true that Jared is undercover, maybe Bowers should have sent someone else into the field instead. Jared doesn’t seem cut out for the gig because he has too much to lose.
‘Manifest’ Starts Production – When Will Season 4 Premiere?
It’s official — Manifest Season 4 is taking off.
Production on the resurrected show has officially begun, and while fans are thrilled, the cast members are flying at high altitudes.
J.R Ramirez, who plays Jared Vasquez on the drama, shared a glimpse of his first day back on set.
“Walking through the stages this am… Just felt different,” Ramirez wrote on Instagram next to a photo by his dressing room.
“I’ve been working in this business for almost two decades now and I know to land a team of Cast n Crew that is as Collaborative, Dedicated and in my opinion (Most Importantly) “Ego Checked” as these Beautifully Talented Humans are… well it RARELY happens,” he added.
“It’s only day one and you can already feel the Level of Appreciation this group has for the Magical Ride that is Manifest!” he continued. “But let’s keep it real… The reality is ALL of This Magic is happening because of YOU guys! You guys made this happen! We Love You. Can’t wait for you to see how it all comes together…”
Vazquez is a police lieutenant that often helps the Stone family as they try to figure out the mystery of Flight 828. He’s also Michaela’s former fiancé.
Josh Dallas, who plays Ben Stone, also took to Instagram to mark the beginning of season 4. He posted a photo of the script and Ben’s iconic black-framed spectacles with the caption: “Something’s happening. #mainfest season 4 has begun!! Nothing will be the same.”
Netflix saved the show months after NBC pulled the plug on it despite fan pleas and petitions.
The streamer renewed the supernatural drama for a fourth and final season to tie up loose ends, give fans closure, and finally reveal the mystery of what actually happened to flight 828.
We’ll update this post as we find out more!
‘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.”

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?
