The pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fall into place on Manifest Season 2 Episode 11, but we still only have about 300 pieces to a 1000 piece puzzle.

Something is better than nothing, right?

It’s incredible how Manifest has managed to uphold a mystery for two seasons while adding several questions to the docket each week. Props to them for keeping us all (even the characters) in a confused-state.

The latest mystery continues to question whether the Callings are good or bad.

Oh, and there’s also been a four-month time-jump. Not only is baby Eden four months old and thriving (that’s our girl!), but it means Ben has been digging into Adrian’s theory for four months and has come up short.

It’s unclear if anyone had any Callings during this time aside from Cal, but it seems like things went back to normal and then started back up one day again. It’s an odd and frustrating way to live.

Ben seems to think that Adrian may have been onto something by thinking they are false prophets, but Mic insists that the Callings have only ever brought good things into their lives.

That is until she gets a Calling while trying to thwart a kid from robbing a bodega that tells her to “let him go.”

She’s thrown off by the request considering it’s in her nature to bring everyone to justice but figures the Callings might have a greater purpose and wants her to catch the “bigger fish,” so she reluctantly obliges.

However, you can’t expect a good and curious cop to just look the other way, and when she begins to investigate alongside Jared, they unearth a much deeper mystery run by a dude named Chase, who was released from prison four months ago.

Long story short, Mic and Jared track down Chase and his men, who are making drugs in some sketchy basement. As she’s about to make the arrest, she hears the Calling once again urge her to “let him go.”

This time, Mic isn’t convinced that the Callings have her best interest in mind, so she goes against them and arrests Chases and his men anyway.

Now, let’s remember that the Al-Zuras journal said that the only way to stop the death date is to do as the Callings ask, so it’s unclear how this will affect Mic, but at least we know the passengers still have free will

During the arrest, Chase says a series of questionable things including: “you know there will be hell to pay, pretty lady,” “holy vengeance” and “this is bigger than the both of us,” which means he knows something about the Callings or the core mystery.

And if you had any doubt that they are involved, Chase and his two buddies are revealed as the three looming shadows haunting Cal and Adrian.

Admittedly, that revelation took me by surprise. I thought the figures would be more “biblical” and less “actual people we’ve never met before.”

How do Chase and his men play into this? One of my theories is that they are somehow Alzuras’ people reincarnated.

Another theory is that much like the passengers of Flight 828 and Zeke, the trio came back from the dead and have been experiencing Callings that want them to make drugs, though, I can’t think of a reason why, but it would prove that the Callings may have a nefarious agenda.

Netflix Passes on Renewing Canceled NBC Drama ‘Manifest’

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Manifest will not fly again.

Netflix has officially passed on renewing the Manifestaccording to Deadline

The plane drama was abruptly canceled after three seasons leaving fans with absolutely no answers as to what led to the disappearance of Flight 828. 

It’s a surprising move considering the series has been steadily holding at #1 after being added to Netflix.

Fans also rallied on social media with the #SaveManifest campaign, but sadly, all efforts were unsuccessful. 

Sources say that since Netflix opted to pass on saving the drama, Warner Bros. Television, the studio responsible for the series, has concluded efforts to rehome it as it’s reportedly too complicated with rights and cast contracts. 

For now, reps for Netflix and WBTV declined to comment.

However, it seems to be a done deal as series creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm the solemn news tweeting: “Manifest Gratitude, Final Edition Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it.”

The third season ended early this month with several cliffhangers, which makes this cancellation and failed rescue mission all the more heartbreaking. 

It’s unclear if NBC is totally against giving the series a wrap-up movie as it did with Timeless, but man, don’t fans deserve closure?

The series was initially pitched as a six-season drama, which means there’s plenty more story to tell. 

Even Rake agreed that fans deserve answers. After all, we didn’t spend three years of our lives tuning in weekly to find out what happened to the plane just to be left hanging.

We all know what happens to those who ignore Callings — it’s not good.

‘Manifest’ Canceled At NBC After 3 Seasons

Manifest Estimated Time of Departure

Flight 828 has been grounded. 

NBC canceled supernatural/sci-fi/plane drama Manifest after three seasons. 

After the cancellation, showrunner Jeff Rake revealed he hopes that the series gets picked up by another outlet or streaming service. 

“My dear Manifesters, I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us,” Rake posted on Twitter late Monday night. “That we’ve been shut down in the middle [of a planned six-season run] is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest”

Many “828ers” might be hoping for the same if they want to find out what finally happened when the flight disappeared and reappeared five years later. 

*** Spoilers Ahead *** 

The third season wrapped up early this week and left fans with several cliffhangers: Grace died, Angelina kidnapped baby Eden, Cal returned as a teenager, and Captain Daly returned but only briefly before disappearing with the remnants of the flight that was being rebuilt in Eureka. Read our full review HERE! 

Manifest’s ratings weren’t overly impressive. According to TVLine, the season averaged a little more than 3 million viewers weekly, which was down 21 and 31% from season 2. 

The problem with broadcast television is that they are so quick to drop shows without giving them a proper conclusion.

Fans deserve better, especially if they’ve been following TV’s biggest mystery for three full seasons. 

Manifest is seeing a lot of buzz following its addition to Netflix, so maybe the streamer will be convinced to give it one more go? 

And if no streaming service picks up the remaining seasons of the Warner Bros. production, maybe NBC will see how passionate the fanbase is and agree to a two-hour movie to wrap things up as they did with Timeless?

Please, don’t leave fans hanging! #SaveManifest

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Can someone please explain what just happened?

A rollercoaster of emotions was experienced on Manifest Season 3 Episode 12 and Manifest Season 3 Episode 13

This is the only show where so much can happen and yet, we get absolutely no clear answers.

I knew I shouldn’t have believed them when they said we would find out what happened to Flight 828, but still, I watched week after week hoping for something . . . anything. 

Instead, I was left with more questions. 

NBC needs to renew the show now because the finale lefts us on several massive cliffhangers. And I don’t want to see the fandom’s reaction if those questions go unanswered! 

Though I’m struggling to wrap my head around what happened, there’s no doubt about it — time-travel is definitely involved!

There’s also a possibility that alternate dimensions also exist.

Those final moments of the two-hour finale kept me on the edge of my seat. 

After Ben and Saanvi cruised into the middle of an electrical storm and dumped the tail fin, it disappeared without a trace. 

However, it didn’t bring Cal back as they assumed it would. 

Instead, they got a Calling, though this time, a very realistic one, which included Saanvi. Her Callings are back, and I’m thrilled that she’s part of the action again. 

Cal was also there, but he was simply passing by and wouldn’t say more than that.

Honestly, why is it so hard for these people to just say what they mean? We don’t have to speak in riddles. It would be so much easier if Cal would just come out and say what was about to happen. 

Maybe then Grace would still be alive.

As things stand, Grace was left bleeding out on the ground after Angelina stabbed her. Can you believe she actually stabbed her?

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

When Grace saw Angelina, she went into momma bear mode and died protecting Eden.  

Angelina is still on the kick that Eden is her guardian angel, and she took it even further by baptizing her. It was all so weird. 

The fact that Eden saw fire when she looked an Angelina leads me to my initial theory that Angelina is the devil or a symbol of evil.
