When Adrian warned Isaiah that there would be “another miracle,” he didn’t realize how far his believer would be willing to go to prove that the miracle of Flight 828 exists on Manifest Season 2 Episode 7.

Every “save the passengers” Calling has been building up to this moment, and by the end of the hour, everyone’s lives were affected and changed as a result.

Isaiah, who many of us believed was an X’er, turned out to be a devoted believer ready to die and transcend death to prove that what happened to Flight 828 is possible again.

In fact, he was so ready to prove it, he gathered all of the passengers in one place and blew the whole place up.

It was dark, twisted, and completely unexpected, but it also gave us some resolution to the Church of Believers storyline.

It was proof that the Church and its message was just as dangerous as Ben believed it was.

What I found frustrating was the lack of clarity from the Callings.

This is a Trap - Manifest Season 2 Episode 7

The way they manifested themselves made it seem like Ben and Mic were supposed to stop another flight from crashing, and yet, it turned out to be a warning about a party that happened to present itself in the confines of a plane.

Is this possibly a clue as to what happened to the real passengers? Why do they keep seeing everything through the lens of a plane crash?

The Callings would be much more useful if they actually gave detailed warnings with a place, a time, or heck, even a person.

Ben spent so much time pushing back against Adrian instead of pursuing the true villain. Though, Adrian isn’t without fault as his ideologies did encourage this.

It didn’t take long for Ben and Mic to realize that something was way off about the party as they spotted all passengers in attendance, but it was too late as Isaiah had set his plans into motion.

Something Seems Off - Manifest Season 2 Episode 7

What followed after was a scene of chaos as people scrambled to find an exit out of the club and to safety.

While Mic and Ben managed to save most of the people with the help of Zeke and Jared, there were a few casualties.

Isaiah and TJ never made it out after the latter bravely sacrificed himself to save Olive from Isaiah’s grasp.

Isaiah pulled Olive in and held a knife to her throat hoping she’d keep Ben and TJ around long enough because passengers needed to be among the fallen.

Olive suffered a great loss with TJ’s death, which will likely force her to rethink everything she’s believed in thus far.

She was so happy to believe in the miracle of Flight 828, but her beliefs put TJ and her family in harm’s way.

I can see her going to a very dark place as a result and blaming herself for everything.

It was incredibly sad that just moments before his death, TJ told Olive he finally “found something to live for.”

Many of us were suspicious of TJ’s motivations and thought maybe he wasn’t being fully honest, but at least this incident redeemed his character and proved that his only fault was wanting a family.

Another casualty of the explosion seemed to be Finn as the camera panned to him laying unconscious in the building moments before it blew up.

It could have been that they simply wanted to show us that Finn was in the same position as he was in the Calling, however, I found myself wondering about the significance of that scene.

Is it possible that they will all come back again because Isaiah died with two passengers? As messed up as his intentions were, maybe he was onto something?

I doubt so much emphasis would be placed on Finn if there wasn’t more to the story.

While Ben and Mic were trying to help from the inside, Grace, Zeke, and Cal all shared a Calling together that warned them about the attack.

Again, the Calling didn’t tell them where the party was happening, so it was up to them to figure it out using Olive’s iPad. Seriously, these Callings need to step up their game.

Zeke helped Mic rescue Bethany, the flight attendant who was trapped under falling rubble. His strength was impressive in that scene, sure, but we need to talk about him lifting a flaming object with his bare hands.

The moment was incredibly odd until he got checked out by Saanvi at the hospital and learned his hands were covered in frostbite and not burns.

The death date is closing in on him and symptoms have begun manifesting themselves. If Ben and Mic don’t figure out a solution soon, Zeke will slowly freeze to death just like he did in that cave.

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 ✈️”

‘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!
