A Peacock, peacock feathers, ancient Egyptians — what does it all have to do with Flight 828?

We’ve been asking ourselves that question for two seasons, but on Manifest Season 3 Episode 3, the mythology begins to bubble up to the surface.

This isn’t the first time we’ve stumbled upon the peacock symbol, as it’s been a recurring theme in both Manifest Season 1 and Manifest Season 2.

It’s promising a sign that we aren’t completely abandoning the symbolism because it’s part of a larger plan. 

However, we’re kind of past the point of continuously seeing the peacock without any context. Audiences want to know how it fits into the overall mystery of the plane’s return. 

We find comfort in knowing that there is a piece of the puzzle out there just waiting to be found that may provide some of the answers we’re seeking. 

The Callings tried to lead Ben to the papyrus, but sadly, Eagan decided to dispose of it while pawning off some of the other artifacts he stole from the storage unit. 

Even without the papyrus’ missing piece, we know the peacock is a symbol for two things: immortality and resurrection.

Manifest Review – Miracles Can Happen (3×09)

Manifest Review Bogey Season 3 Episode 9

Secrets and lies threatened the lifeboat on Manifest Season 3 Episode 9, but not before we were served up bleeding eyes, floods, earthquakes, and more! 

What an insane episode.

If you watch Manifest online, you’re familiar with the Dark Cloud Calling, which loomed large once again to send a warning that Eureka is the epicenter of sketchy activity and answers.

All the pieces are slowly but surely falling into place, but now, it’s up to the 828’ers to make sense of everything. 

And that’s where it gets a bit tricky. 

There’s a lot at play here as the Callings connect to science, the Bible, and Egyptian mythology all at the same time.

From where I’m standing, it seems like Saanvi and the team at Eureka are playing with fire. 

While trying to solve the mystery of what happened to Flight 828, Saanvi successfully made the fragment of Noah’s Ark vanish using simulated dark lightning.

“God isn’t the only one who can create a miracle,” was the line that stood out to me because playing God never ends well. 

And trying to recreate divine actions likely comes with a price. 

However, this is the first real explanation that we have for Flight 828 disappearing and coming back five years later, so maybe it’s worth the risk? 

It also seems that the key to these seismic events is a returned passenger since no one else was able to accomplish what Saanvi did on her first try. 

As for what all of this means. . . I have no clue. And I’m no longer trying to figure it out. 

Instead, I just strap in each week and enjoy the insanely wild ride. 

Ben, Eagan, and Mick also shared a Calling that included a flood and a lion. I thought it was trying to tell them about the driftwood and Noah’s Ark, but Mick didn’t seem too phased by the revelation. 

Instead, they assumed that the lion that was bleeding tears was warning them about a lie.

When she saw Saanvi’s eyes bleeding, she realized that Saanvi was keeping something from them, which was threatening all of their lives.

After Saanvi came clean about what she did to The Major, she was miraculously cured. The episode had its fair share of miracles, that’s for sure. 

Ben then found the Al-Zuras journal and saw Saanvi’s picture in it (that still makes me laugh out loud) and figured that in order to preserve the Lifeboat, some people who posed a threat would have to make personal sacrifices and jump off.

In this case, Saanvi was causing a leak in the Lifeboat, so she jumped ship.

When she came clean, order was restored.

But then Grace took it a step further and suggested maybe people were being pushed off the Lifeboat, which then opens up another can of worms. 

Could the Callings be evil?

Also, does Saanvi have to get arrested in order to make amends?

Mick knows that Saanvi didn’t mean to kill The Major, and there’s no denying that The Major was a pretty terrible person who did awful things to the passengers. In a way, Saanvi saved all of them. That has to count for something, right?

With Saanvi’s skills, I think the NSA will vouch for her and she won’t have to go to jail.

It’ll take time for her soul to heal from what she did, but at least she was able to get it off her chest finally.

Manifest Double Episode Review – How Is Noah’s Ark Connected to Flight 828? (3×07 & 3×08)

Published

on

Manifest Review Precious Cargo and Destination Unknown Season 3 Episode 7 and Episode 8

With another double-header, Manifest Season 3 Episode 7 and Manifest Season 3 Episode 8 erupted with a few answers about the miraculous return of Flight 828. 

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 Double Episode Review – Sayonara, Methheads! (3×05 and 3×06)

Published

on

Manifest Review Water Landing and Graveyard Spiral Season 3 Episode 5 and 6

Manifest hit us with an action-packed doubleheader.

The episode was filled with dramatic fight scenes, Grace covered in blood and holding a shotgun, and an NSA agent getting shot in the head. 

And that was just the tip of the iceberg. 

There’s no denying it — Manifest Season 3 Episode 5 and Manifest Season 3 Episode 6 were intense and gave us new and unexpected insight into the death date and the Callings.

But don’t be fooled . . . as per usual, one answer leads to a plethora of new questions. 

Even the ending, which saw the methheads dying together, remained vague as Ben declared: “We were so very wrong.”

Jace was the only one of the methheads that wasn’t redeemed, but he wasn’t the only one to die. 

Initially, everyone thought he’d be the only one to meet a permanent fate since he continued down a destructive path while the others made the most of their second chance.  

Pete helped Ben track his brother and save his family, plus, he found love with Angelina. 

Meanwhile, Kory helped save Cal by coming to tell him to stop reciting the nursery rhyme as it led Jace right to him. 

They both proved that in their second go-around, they would make better choices. 

And yet, it didn’t matter.

After Jace died by throwing up lake water, the other two consumed by his shadow figure.

I know that the shadows come with the territory, but they were a little too animated and cheesy for my taste.

I also can’t say that I’ll miss the methheads. We were supposed to be touched by Pete’s redemption arc and love story with Angelina, but it just didn’t have the same pull as Mic and Zeke’s survivor love story. 

Kory barely made a dent in the storyline aside from being a cool dude. 

As for Jace, well, the world is better off without him. 

Olive’s discovery that they “all came back together so they will all be judged together” does change things for the passengers of Flight 828. 

Up until now, they thought that following the Callings individually and being good people would lead them to defeat the death date.

But if they are all being judged collectively, staying alive is going to be much harder.

One bad apple can ruin it for everyone. And we already know that there’s someone out there — looking at you, Eagan — that’s doesn’t have pure intentions for following the Callings. 

The revelation from the Egyptian symbols may have been shocking, but in hindsight, I feel like the signs were all there. 

After all, the series keeps pounding the fact that it’s all connected. If that’s the case, why wouldn’t the fates of the passengers be connected as well?
