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?

    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. 

    INTERVIEW: J.R. Ramirez Teases Jared’s Arc on Season 3 of ‘Manifest’

    “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…”

    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. 

    It’s unclear when the season will hit Netflix, but it seems like a 2022 premiere could be likely. Dallas also teased: “Coming soon to @netflix#manifest ✈️”

    ‘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!
