Saanvi did not come to play on Manifest Season 2 Episode 3, but most importantly, she did not let us down either.

Admittedly, my confidence in Saanvi waned a bit after Ben told her the truth about the mole and Vance.

Saanvi’s mental health was in a fragile space because of possibly repressed feelings for Ben and her inability to cope with her failed relationship with Alex, so there was concern that she would blab all about Ben’s betrayal to her therapist (who we’re aware is the Major).

Instead, Saanvi was able to accomplish more in one episode than Ben and Mic have for the entire series.

I always knew there was a reason I liked her the best. This is an official call to give Saanvi more screentime.

After spending half of the episode lying to Saanvi and hoping she’d set the bait for the mole, Ben couldn’t betray her trust any longer and came clean. It was for the best — he’s a terrible liar.

There are moments when Ben impresses with his smarts but this wasn’t one of those moments.

If Ben was going to disclose *top secret* information to Saanvi, he should have at least gone somewhere secluded rather than telling her in the middle of her lab where there’s a huge chance the mole set up cameras, listening, devices, etc.

She even had her phone on her, which we know for a fact is easily tapped into by government agencies.

Oh, Ben.

The moment Saanvi found out that there was a mole in her presence, she became skeptical of everyone including Troy. (Same, girl, same!)

However, I think she always had a hunch that her psychologist was playing her. Otherwise, how would she have figured it out so quickly?

Saanvi brilliantly laid the breadcrumbs by telling the psychologist about her latest “breakthrough,” subtly mentioning that her findings were located in the fridge inside her office.

The Major took the bait, which was a tad bit surprising considering how high she ranks and how manipulative she’s been made out to be. Clearly, the audience wasn’t the only one who underestimated Saanvi’s abilities.

Saanvi was able to execute her plan perfectly because of the trust she’d built up throughout her sessions.

Her plan allowed Ben and Vance to confirm The Major’s identity and now, they’re going to “turn the tables.”

It’s unclear what they have in mind, but now that they’re on equal footing with The Major, they’re able to feed her fake information and watch what she does with it.

We’re now in the third episode of the season and sadly, the answers that we’ve all been patiently waiting for aren’t manifesting.

Figuring out The Major’s identity was a huge breakthrough for the characters, but it’s something we already knew, so the big reveal loses that heroic momentum.

It’s an issue Manifest continues to run into as they’re carefully planned “oh my god moments” fall flat because they’ve been established to audiences before being revealed to the characters.

There’s also the issue of the mystery being too convoluted with so many moving parts that it’s become hard to keep track of what’s really happening.

Along with The Major drama, Saanvi’s past was touched upon briefly, specifically, her ex Alex, the man who never made their trip to Jamaica. Lucky dude, right?

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 ✈️”
