Something wicked this way comes.
Towards the end of Manifest Season 2 Episode 10, both Adrian and Cal experienced a similar Calling as they saw three shadows closing in on them.
The Calling, though, I’m not sure if it can even be called that as it seems more like an omen, appeared throughout the episode as the usually outspoken Cal tried to hide it from Olive instead of asking for help with trying to figure out what it meant.
Cal’s not the type to ignore a Calling, but this one seemed to terrify him more than anything else.
He mentioned that it was one of the first Callings that he simply never figured out, as the black shadow on the picture of the Stone family kept getting bigger and bigger with time.
Initially, it seemed like the Calling had something to do with Grace’s labor, but even after everything worked out for her, the shadows still kept creeping up.
Is there a possibility that Adrian is right about the Callings? Could the 828 passengers be false prophets that arose from the dead to perform signs and wonders? Has the evidence been there all this time and Cal simply hid it away?
It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for the three shadow figures to be agents the apocalypse.
However, if we’re to believe in the Callings and that they help people, the shadows could be three wise men arriving after the birth of a baby and savior. The series has had plenty of biblical references.
Honestly, it depends on how you look and interpret the Callings — are they a blessing or a curse? Or a little bit of both?
The Callings haven’t been too forward with their clues, and yes, things did take a dark turn for a little bit, which we believed was “payment” for all the good things that happened (see: TJ surviving the fire), but in the end, everything turned out just fine.
Grace and the baby prevailed, although, for a moment, the situation was dire as Ben was forced to choose between his wife and the baby.
She told Ben to “save her,” referring to the baby, and I couldn’t help but think that this was a Calling Ben had earlier this season that he believed was about Olive.
Maybe it was always about the unborn child? Or about Grace?
Ben couldn’t sit back and let his wife die, so he chose to save Grace while believing the baby would also survive.
He put his faith in the Callings and he was right as the only doctor that could perform the surgery to save them both was the kayaker that Adrian saved from the river because of a Calling. It really is all connected.
If we’re to believe that the Callings are “signs and wonders,” this was the perfect example of how the Callings could manipulate the Stone family into thinking they are doing good since Grace fell while checking out a Calling, put herself and the baby in danger, and then, was spared by the same Calling.
Manifest: Ben Stone Reveals He “Knows” What Happened to Flight 828 in New Trailer
Alright, time to give us the deets, Ben Stone.
In a new trailer hyping the return of Manifest Season 3 on April 1, the patriarch of the family tells former NSA agent Vance that he “knows what happened to Flight 828.”
The trailer then shows Ben getting a reverse-vision (or Calling) of the plane blowing up as it nose dives into the water, which would make sense considering that in the final moments of season 2, fisherman pulled out what seems to be the tail fin of the doomed flight.
His theory: “I think we died on that flight.”
Of course, that raises even more questions than it answers, though the trailer promises to “reveal the truth.”
If they died, how are did they return five years later? Where did they go for those five years?
Are the Callings premonitions or memories and flashbacks? Is their time on back limited by a “death date” that we thought was avoidable?
Let’s hope TV’s biggest mystery answers our burning questions… but until then, re-watch this promo over and over as you try to drum up your own theory that would make Ben proud!

‘Manifest’ Season 3 Poster Teases the Tailfin Mystery: “The Truth Will Surface”
If you’ve spent the past year wondering what happened to Flight 828, you’re not alone.
But it looks like Manifest Season 3 will begin to divulge some answers and unravel the mystery. (At least we hope so.)
NBC released the first poster for the upcoming third season – which premieres on April 1, 2021 (no, not an April Fools joke) – and it focuses heavily on the tailfin fished out of the water in the final moments of Manifest Season 2.
For those that need a little refresher, a tailfin from a Montego Air flight was found by the fishermen in a massive body of water indicating that the flight that we saw land at the kickstart of season 1 did, in fact, crash five years ago.
Understandably, this raised so many questions… on top of the questions we already had. How did the plane return if it crashed? How are the passengers alive? Are the passengers even the passengers?
The season 3 poster focuses heavily on the tailfin and features the tagline: “the truth will surface.”
With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that the season will seemingly address the mystery of the tailfin and how it ended up underwater as it connects to Flight 828.
Show creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm this by explaining: “From literally the opening shot of Season Three, we’ll see the Tailfin lure our heroes even deeper into the mystery of Flight 828.”
Of course, the first episode of season 3 is aptly titled “Tailspin.” Is that a hint that the plane dived into the ocean?
Or will the episode and the mystery take us on a whirlwind of a descent?
And while no synopsis is provided for now, there is this photo of Josh Dallas who plays Ben Stone.
That’s a very tropical outfit for Ben, wouldn’t you say?
The mystery of the tailfin thickens because since Flight 828 landed five years after it took off from Jamaica, there’s no reason for it to be underwater.
Plus, we saw the plane explode in front of all the passengers when they received a collective “calling.”
There have been several theories about the existence of the tailfin, however.
There’s a chance that the tailfin could belong to a decoy plane used by the government since we know they’re involved. Could this be what exposes them?
Maybe they wanted people to think that the plane sunk and took the real thing to inspect? But the government wouldn’t be reckless enough to dump the real thing in the ocean, would they?
Users pointed out that when the plane exploded, it didn’t actually show the tailfin getting destroyed, so it’s possible it was dumped into the ocean to destroy evidence.
However, another interesting point is that the tailfin being pulled out of the water and the one from the exploding plane look different. It could be another side of the fin, it could be a filming continuity error, or it might not be the same tailfin at all.
Personally, I think it looks like it would be from an older model aircraft, so maybe it’s from a plane that crashed prior?
I’m into the theory that it’s from an alternate reality, but the fishermen are fully aware that Flight 828 returned, so we know that this timeline exists alongside the passengers and in the same dimension.
Rake had this to say about the tailfin if it offers you any insight: “We saw that plane land in New York. We saw that plane blow up on the tarmac at the end of the pilot. So how can a plane have landed and been exploded and then also be found at the bottom of the ocean? Once the entire world finds out about this tailfin, that’s going to re-trigger the global scrutiny and paranoia about Flight 828 and its passengers.”
Could it be that the passengers aren’t even real? Rake has considered it: “Does this mean that the passengers are not the passengers? And if they’re not the passengers, who are they? That’s going to be a season-long, science-based, science meets mythology investigation. For those who have been feeling that the episodes have become a little science-light or investigation-light, they have a lot of good material coming down the pike.”
Clearly, there’s plenty of avenues for the series to take here.
Hopefully, the season gives us some answers to the central mystery at the core of NBC’s most thrilling series.
We’ll see you back here on April 1!
