Is it just me or is this season of Manifest more action-packed?

The pace and momentum picked up even more on Manifest Season 3 Episode 2 as Angelina and her Callings were thrown into the mix. Not a moment wasted!

Not only did her Calling connect to the methheads, who have been resurrected from their underwater slumber, but it continued down the religious trajectory with a vision of Archangel Michael, best known as a healing angel who served as the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil.

Could the Calling be implying that the passengers of Flight 828 were sent back to Earth to fight against the darkness?

The Calling also brought Angelina and Peter together, but what’s the connection?

It doesn’t seem like their paths have crossed before in a meaningful way, and yet, the Calling’s wanted them to find each other. 

Pete wasn’t just a random stranger in the background of her photo. 

Why?

It was a little frustrating that Mic didn’t even try to get any answers before bringing Pete into the precinct.

She could have still done things “by the book” while also getting some clarity as to how the methheads relate to 828 and their latest passenger. 

The Captain gave Mic a stern talking to as she returned to work, but at this point, I think she’s realizing that whatever Mic is messed up in, it’s not normal.

Even the most rational person cannot rationalize three guys emerging from a lake after three months of being presumed dead.

The Captain knows that logic doesn’t apply here, so maybe she’ll be on Mic’s side soon enough?

And how is Drea assisting with cases but not asking any questions? Olive openly talked about following Callings. Wouldn’t that make you want to question what’s going on?

Drea and Mic seem to consider each other really good friends, so it’s borderline insulting not to clue her in at this point. 

If she’s going to be putting her life on the line, she should at least know what’s at stake. 

I’m glad that Pete chose to break free from Jace’s toxic grasp.

He and Korey were both aware that they needed to make the most of their second chance, and they weren’t interested in ruining it by making the mistakes of their past.

Jace is the one we should really be concerned about because he’s dangerous and vengeful. 

According to Ben and Mic’s theory, the trio remained dead for 84 days, which likely means they have 84 days to live.

But what happens if they follow the Callings? Will that buy them more time as it did with Zeke?

The chase sequence gave audiences a good dose of adrenaline, even if it was cut short by Jace firebombing Mic and Drea. 

Also, why wouldn’t the Captain send Jared along for the ride? I’m not saying Mic and Drea can’t handle themselves, but it would be nice to have some backup when dealing with dangerous criminals.

I didn’t think I’d be interested in adding another passenger to the mix, but it’s nice that Olive has someone her age that she can team up with. 

Olive may not get the Calling’s, but she has plenty of experience navigating them, so helping Angelina figure out what they mean is giving her some purpose.

Ben is his own worst enemy.

What part of Vance’s “don’t come save me” speech was unclear?

Instead of heeding Vance’s instructions to let him handle things in Cuba, Ben couldn’t help himself and needed to find a way to help his partner.

Vance was able to fake his death for more than a year, so it’s safe to say he probably had an escape plan for Cuba anyway. 

With the NSA, DOD, and Pentagon already onto Ben, you would think that he’d lie low, but instead, he spilled the beans to Powell about Vance being alive.

I know Ben thinks he’s doing the right thing, but what makes him think Powell can be trusted? What if he was wired? 

Vance has chosen to remain under the radar and has purposefully kept his circle tight.

If he thought he could trust his partner, don’t you think he would have told him the truth on his own terms?

Ben, come on! I think it’s been made pretty clear that government entities cannot be trusted when it comes to Flight 828. 

The fact that Vance’s wife blamed Ben for everything that was happening was also slightly ridiculous.

The government turned on Vance, which caused him to fake his death in the first place.

However, she knew the man she married — a man who seeks out the truth no matter the danger, so it’s not like he would be fine with ignoring the biggest mystery to ever come across his desk.

Vance is a grown man who is responsible for his own decisions, and while Ben definitely contributed, none of this is his fault.

I wasn’t entirely sure if Powell leaked the tail fin to reporters or if it was a result of the video that was taken by the young boy in Cuba, but either way, everyone is now aware that a piece of the plane was found in the ocean. 

But these people also watched the plane land with all passengers on-board about a year-and-a-half ago in New York City, so it’s understandable that they have questions.

‘Manifest’ Officially Saved by Netflix For Fourth and Final Season

Manifest Cal Stone Jack Messina Interview

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. 

Will ‘Manifest’ Get a Season 4 After All?

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!

Will ‘Manifest’ Be Renewed on August 28?

Published

Manifest Off Radar

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. 

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. 

Manifest: 11 Questions We Need Answered

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. 

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!
