Another episode, another week where we don’t know any more than we did previously.
The series has such a roundabout way of getting to any concrete answers that the slow momentum is bound to leave fans frustrated, exhausted, or a little bit of both.
That’s not to say that Manifest Season 2 Episode 2 didn’t establish any brand new information, but it wasn’t enough to blow our minds or provide clarity on the fuzziness mystery.
The episode confirmed that the Callings between Mic, Zeke, and Cal are definitely synced up and getting stronger the more they fight them.
At one point, the turbulence from the plane manifested itself into physical convulsions that were only felt by the three survivors. And yes, it looked just as odd to those around them as it did to us.
These convulsions led to Zeke getting restrained and drugged while in prison after foolishly pleading guilty to all the charges against him, which is concerning. Was this normal protocol?
Or does The Major have goons in the prison just like she has them around the hospital?
It’s looking as if nowhere is safe for the Flight 828 passengers anymore, but unfortunately, they don’t know that. Not fully, at least.
On the bright side, Ben is on the cusp of linking Saanvi’s therapist to The Major (he’ll be in for quite the shocker when he learns the therapist is The Major) after realizing she ordered a DNA sequencer just like Saanvi.
The Major being the mole isn’t outright obvious to the passengers, but it won’t take a genius to put two and two together, especially now that they have Vance to help them spy on The Major’s activities.
That is until someone realizes that Vance faked his own death. It’s bound to happen sooner or later as I’d imagine The Major has people following Ben and Mic at all times.
But instead of focusing on the negatives here, let’s commend Vance on not only pulling off such a feat but being smart enough to realize that he cannot trust his own government.
It’s still unclear why Vance chose this moment to “come back from the dead,” though.
He doesn’t seem to have any concrete information other than investigating a black ops financial pipeline that’s funding a shadow 828 investigation, but he could have kept looking into it without revealing himself.
It seems silly that he would risk blowing his cover to reveal absolutely nothing of value.
And don’t even get me started on the fact that his wife knows he’s alive. Family is collateral, he cannot be this clumsy one moment and brilliant the next!
Without Vance’s intel, though, Mic and Ben would just be running around each other with conspiracy theories that make no sense. At least this gives them some upper hand since The Major has been playing them all like a fiddle, especially poor Saanvi.
Revealing that the Callings may be genetically transferable is dangerous information for The Major to possess.
There are several ways she can cause damage with that newfound information including mind control.
One of the most frustrating things about Manifest, aside from continuously providing no real answers, is that the focus is often split between the mystery of what happened to Flight 828 and these Callings.
It’s clear the Callings serve a greater purpose, but as we look at them through the lens of the passengers, they’re rather pointless.
Ben spent most of the episode with TJ, a college student who reached out to him because the Callings were confusing and too much to handle. TJ thought he was seeing his own death until he followed his hunch and dug up the body of a student.
WATCH: ‘Manifest’ Season 4 Sneak Peek
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’ 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!
