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.
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?
Manifest: Ben Stone Reveals He “Knows” What Happened to Flight 828 in New Trailer
Alright, time to give us the deets, Ben Stone.
In a new trailer hyping the return of Manifest Season 3 on April 1, the patriarch of the family tells former NSA agent Vance that he “knows what happened to Flight 828.”
The trailer then shows Ben getting a reverse-vision (or Calling) of the plane blowing up as it nose dives into the water, which would make sense considering that in the final moments of season 2, fisherman pulled out what seems to be the tail fin of the doomed flight.
His theory: “I think we died on that flight.”
Of course, that raises even more questions than it answers, though the trailer promises to “reveal the truth.”
If they died, how are did they return five years later? Where did they go for those five years?
Are the Callings premonitions or memories and flashbacks? Is their time on back limited by a “death date” that we thought was avoidable?
Let’s hope TV’s biggest mystery answers our burning questions… but until then, re-watch this promo over and over as you try to drum up your own theory that would make Ben proud!

‘Manifest’ Season 3 Poster Teases the Tailfin Mystery: “The Truth Will Surface”
If you’ve spent the past year wondering what happened to Flight 828, you’re not alone.
But it looks like Manifest Season 3 will begin to divulge some answers and unravel the mystery. (At least we hope so.)
NBC released the first poster for the upcoming third season – which premieres on April 1, 2021 (no, not an April Fools joke) – and it focuses heavily on the tailfin fished out of the water in the final moments of Manifest Season 2.
For those that need a little refresher, a tailfin from a Montego Air flight was found by the fishermen in a massive body of water indicating that the flight that we saw land at the kickstart of season 1 did, in fact, crash five years ago.
Understandably, this raised so many questions… on top of the questions we already had. How did the plane return if it crashed? How are the passengers alive? Are the passengers even the passengers?
The season 3 poster focuses heavily on the tailfin and features the tagline: “the truth will surface.”
With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that the season will seemingly address the mystery of the tailfin and how it ended up underwater as it connects to Flight 828.
Show creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm this by explaining: “From literally the opening shot of Season Three, we’ll see the Tailfin lure our heroes even deeper into the mystery of Flight 828.”
Of course, the first episode of season 3 is aptly titled “Tailspin.” Is that a hint that the plane dived into the ocean?
Or will the episode and the mystery take us on a whirlwind of a descent?
And while no synopsis is provided for now, there is this photo of Josh Dallas who plays Ben Stone.
That’s a very tropical outfit for Ben, wouldn’t you say?
The mystery of the tailfin thickens because since Flight 828 landed five years after it took off from Jamaica, there’s no reason for it to be underwater.
Plus, we saw the plane explode in front of all the passengers when they received a collective “calling.”
There have been several theories about the existence of the tailfin, however.
There’s a chance that the tailfin could belong to a decoy plane used by the government since we know they’re involved. Could this be what exposes them?
Maybe they wanted people to think that the plane sunk and took the real thing to inspect? But the government wouldn’t be reckless enough to dump the real thing in the ocean, would they?
Users pointed out that when the plane exploded, it didn’t actually show the tailfin getting destroyed, so it’s possible it was dumped into the ocean to destroy evidence.
However, another interesting point is that the tailfin being pulled out of the water and the one from the exploding plane look different. It could be another side of the fin, it could be a filming continuity error, or it might not be the same tailfin at all.
Personally, I think it looks like it would be from an older model aircraft, so maybe it’s from a plane that crashed prior?
I’m into the theory that it’s from an alternate reality, but the fishermen are fully aware that Flight 828 returned, so we know that this timeline exists alongside the passengers and in the same dimension.
Rake had this to say about the tailfin if it offers you any insight: “We saw that plane land in New York. We saw that plane blow up on the tarmac at the end of the pilot. So how can a plane have landed and been exploded and then also be found at the bottom of the ocean? Once the entire world finds out about this tailfin, that’s going to re-trigger the global scrutiny and paranoia about Flight 828 and its passengers.”
Could it be that the passengers aren’t even real? Rake has considered it: “Does this mean that the passengers are not the passengers? And if they’re not the passengers, who are they? That’s going to be a season-long, science-based, science meets mythology investigation. For those who have been feeling that the episodes have become a little science-light or investigation-light, they have a lot of good material coming down the pike.”
Clearly, there’s plenty of avenues for the series to take here.
Hopefully, the season gives us some answers to the central mystery at the core of NBC’s most thrilling series.
We’ll see you back here on April 1!
