For starters, it’s on its way to being declared an official miracle just like Noah’s Ark, which begs the question: are the passenger’s saints or angels? Is that why they’re glowing?
The series has always had religious undertones, but connecting it to the vessel that saved Noah, his family, and his animals takes it to a whole other level.
Though, I guess it does explain all the guest appearances from the peacock.
The revelations started when Saanvi realized that the passengers and the recently deceased Meth Heads shared the same DNA anomaly of sapphire.
This led to the delivery of driftwood from the Vatican (the place that has the power to declare miracles). The driftwood was described as the only specimen on the planet coated with the same sapphire compound.
And it’s location led Saanvi to discover that it was likely a piece from Noah’s Ark.
Now, I’m not going to pretend that I understand why Flight 828 and Noah’s Ark are connected (and if you do, let me know in the comments), but the fact that Ben spent much of the episodes preserving their “lifeboat” — preventing passengers from doing something that would result in all of their deaths — wasn’t lost on me.
I also looked into the meaning of sapphire in the bible and found that it was once believed that the stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed were made from sapphire.
Do with that what you will, my friends.
Maybe Ben is about to issue commandments to all of the 187 passengers?
Micromanaging so many people into diligently following the Callings and behaving appropriately sounds like a tall, impossible order.
Ben is up for the challenge, but it doesn’t seem like the rest of the passengers are all too eager for him to be their “shepherd.”
That reference wasn’t lost on me either.
Of course, there’s also a scientific aspect to what happened to Flight 828 as both the driftwood and the tailfin were triggered by a seismic event, which Saanvi notes was caused by a dormant volcano that wasn’t registered in any databases.
It’s described as invisible just like the lightning that Captain Daly believed struck the plane.
All I know is, I’m glad they’re addressing Daly and Fiona because it means that we’ll eventually get some answers as to what happened there.
Initially, I thought that maybe Flight 828 flew over Mount Arat on its way from Jamaica to New York, but the flight plan wouldn’t track.
So, maybe the lightning — which we also saw with Al Zuras — is responsible for the volcanos?
Again, please let me know if I’m totally off base here!
Explosions and fire aren’t new for the series as Ben and some of the other passengers continue to have visions of Flight 828 exploding.
And I’m going to go on a limb and say that the fire in the Calling that led Mick and Ben to Rachel and Hannah wasn’t a coincidence either.
The volcano is the new peacock!
‘Manifest’ Starts Production – When Will Season 4 Premiere?
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.
“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.
We’ll update this post as we find out more!
‘Manifest’ Officially Saved by Netflix For Fourth and Final Season
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.”

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.
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!
Which ‘Manifest’ Character Is Your Soulmate?
Since Manifest was officially saved by Netflix for a fourth and final season, there’s no better time to find out which character would be your soulmate!
Do you connect most with an 828-er? A family member of the returned? Or someone involved with helping the truth come to light?
