When Michaela uttered “what the hell is happening” at the end of Manifest Season 2 Episode 6, I’ve never related to anything more in my life.

It’s comforting to know that the characters are just as lost and confused as the majority of the audience.

The Callings have made it clear that they want Ben, Mic, Saanvi, and Zeke to “save the passengers,” but these scenarios have taken us away from the core mystery.

Ben and Saanvi shared a Calling (yay! the dynamic duo is back!) which showed a young, scared boy on Flight 828, and led them to a man named Finn, an 828 passenger who found out he had a 5-year-old child with following a one-night stand with a woman in Jamaica.

You’re probably thinking “so now the Calling is here to reunite long lost families?” It’s a valid question, and the answer is yes, sort of, but also not really.

The Calling wanted to warn Finn, Ben, and Saanvi about Theo’s liver disease.

Finn was a match and saved Theo’s life temporarily. Saanvi assumed that it’s possible they extended his life as the death date anomaly was transferrable. More on that later.

It also led to another joint Calling as Mic, Ben, Saanvi, and Adrian (no one saw him there) found themselves standing in the middle of a plane crash.

At first, it seemed like the wreck was from Flight 828, but as they looked closer, they realized they didn’t recognize the passengers and figured this was a brand new flight.

The only passenger on-board that looked familiar was Finn, and since he was holding the rock that his son showed him in this episode, it’s safe to say the wrecked flight is a glimpse into the future.

In my reviews of Manifest Season 2 Episode 4, I said my off-the-wall theory was that they’re supposed to save passengers from a future crash, and that seems to be the case here.

The title of the episode is “Return Flight,” so could this be a flight coming home from somewhere?

We’ve now successfully completed a full-circle back to Mic’s question: what the hell is happening?

Adrian’s inclusion in the Calling was surprising and sparked a new theory that maybe he’s responsible for the crash.

He wasn’t inside the plane with Ben, Saanvi, and Mic, but rather, on the outside. It could be alluding to the fact that he’s an “outsider,” but maybe it’s teasing that there’s more to his story than we know.

Shortly before the Calling, he told Isaiah that “another miracle was coming” and seemed confident in that as if he knew more than he was letting on.

The Callings have become frustrating because they don’t have a clear directive that allows the passengers to act on them properly.

Grace’s “open her eyes” Calling about Erika is still lingering without any resolution.

Saanvi returned after her episode-hiatus and wasted no time jumping into the action.

We should all be worried about her because she’s taking the “save the passengers” Calling to the extreme by experimenting on herself after losing all of her research to The Major and her goons.

Saanvi is aware of the risks that come with becoming her guinea pig but doesn’t care because she’s so determined to get answers.

Her decision is incredibly dangerous because Ben is right, how is she supposed to help anyone if she kills herself in the process?

We need her around if her assumption that the death date anomaly is transferrable through the liver transplant and by birth.

Saanvi’s absence from the previous episode was explained as her “hiding out” from The Major, but she’s back and walking around without a care in the world. Does The Major no longer pose a threat?

What’s The Major doing with all that research?

And what about Vance? Is he still in hiding?

The introduction of Zeke’s wife didn’t have much of an impact on the storyline other than causing some drama between Mic and Zeke.

Courtney turned out to be his “fake wife” as they never made things legally binding.

She came, caused a disturbance in Zeke’s life, and walked right out without uttering a word after he almost relapsed while trying to pay off her debt.

Is it possible Courtney is working with the X’ers? Did she purposefully want to sabotage Zeke’s relationship and put doubts in Mic’s mind?

Happy 828 Day! Manifest Season 4 Part 1 Premiere Date, Plot Announced

Manifest Wingman Review Season 3 Episode 3

After Manifest got a second chance at life on 828 Day (celebrated annually on August 28) last year — a nod to the show’s Flight 828 — fans have been treated to more exciting information.
 
Last year, the streamer announced that they would be saving the series following its cancelation by NBC, but this year we finally have a premiere date.
 
Attention all Manifesters, we’re now Flight 828 as the first half of season 4 will premiere on November 4, 2022.
 
Since 828 is so meaningful to fans, Manifest Season 4 Part 1 was announced on 8:28 a.m. PT. It will contain 10 episodes with the final 10 premiering at a later date.
 
Check out the new promo art below:
 
 

And here is the official synopsis: “Two years after the brutal murder of Grace turned their lives upside down, the Stone family is in shambles as a devastated Ben continues to mourn his wife and search for his kidnapped daughter, Eden. Consumed by his grief, Ben has stepped down from his role as co-captain of the lifeboat, leaving Michaela to captain it alone, a near impossible feat with the passengers’ every move now being monitored by a government registry. As the Death Date draws closer and the passengers grow desperate for a path to survival, a mysterious passenger arrives with a package for Cal that changes everything they know about Flight 828 and will prove to be the key to unlocking the secret of the Callings in this compelling, mind-bending, and deeply emotional journey.”

WATCH: ‘Manifest’ Season 4 Sneak Peek

WATCH: 'Manifest' Season 4 Sneak Peek from Geeked Week

The fourth and final season of Manifest is on the horizon! 

As part of Geeked Week, Netflix gave fans a first look and the upcoming season.

The clip features Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), who takes an unsolicited trip to the docks to locate a shipping container decked out in images of cherry blossom.

The shipping container that she needed to locate is glowing, so it’s likely that a vision brought her here.

But when she opens that bad boy up, it doesn’t seem like she knows what she’s looking for at all. In fact, she’s terrified to find a hand reaching for her. The man, who doesn’t seem to be doing well at all, has “Stone 828” carved into his hand. I really hope they aren’t introducing zombies into the mix. 

Netflix knew that they would pique our interest with this snippet, but since we have no other context about the scene, there’s not much to theorize or go off of in terms of what’s happening. 

All we truly know is that the Stone family is doing their best to crack the mystery of what happened to Flight 828 before time officially runs out. 

What do you think about the sneak peek? 

There is no season premiere date just yet, but according to Netflix the final season is “coming soon.” And it was confirmed that it will be released in two batches of 10 episodes.

Manifest Unaccompanied Minors Review

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…”

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. 

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 ✈️”
