The passengers of Flight 828 must look to the future to find answers about the death date Callings and the mystery of what happened to them on the flight.
On Manifest Season 2 Episode 5, pieces of the puzzle began falling into place in exciting and unexpected ways thanks to the peacock symbol, Jared (shocker), and the Church of the Believers. Who knew they would be so key to the storyline?
One major revelation came as Grace explained that she saw the peacock symbol before on a tarot card that a psychic gave Olive about 2 years after the plane’s disappearance.
The card featured the same peacock with the star above it as seen on the compass Mic retrieved on Manifest Season 2 Episode 4, and came with the message: “look to the future, there’s a possibility that everything will turn out well.”
Technically, one could argue that it was referring to their return in the future, but I think this is our first clue into figuring out what happened to Capt. Bill Daly and Fiona when they tried to jump into the future.
You may remember that Daly thought he had figured out what happened to 828 and tried to fly into the storm to jump into 2024, the year of the assumed death date.
Ben assumed Daly failed in his mission and was shot down, but what if he succeeded and has the answers they’re looking for?
What if Daly encouraged the future versions of the passengers to send themselves Callings to prevent the death date?
That kind of knowledge from future Ben and Mic could help them thwart the danger in the present-day and possibly change history.
On my review of Manifest Season 2 Episode 4, I mentioned that I was surprised that the “it’s all connected” Calling wasn’t more prominent, but this episode capitalized on the idea that nothing is coincidental or circumstantial.
Everything that’s happening is due to cause-and-effect that’s directly connected to the reemergence of the plane.
Olive played a more significant role as she was forced to come clean about her involvement in the Church to identify the X’er responsible for terrorizing the Church.
As expected, Ben and Grace didn’t take too kindly to the reveal that she’s a believer.
They understood her desire to get answers and make sense of what happened, but they continue to believe that Adrian is exploiting them and putting a target on their backs.
And while that may be true, Ben is making Adrian seem worse than he really is simply because he has nothing else to latch onto and no one else to blame.
Adrian is fueling the fire unnecessarily, but the X’ers would have hated the “returned” with or without the Church.
Ben’s hatred against Adrian is blinding him to the bigger picture at play here: Adrian isn’t the guy that he needs to save Olive from, Isaiah is.
The subtle reveal that the blindly devoted Isaiah is an X’er posing within the Church was brilliantly executed and kind of creepy.
Isaiah was made out to be a victim throughout the hour, but the glare he gave Adrian towards the end makes it evident he has malicious intent.
It even explains why he didn’t out any of the attackers — it wasn’t his dedication to the Church but rather protecting his own.
Why did he want to get close to Olive, though?
The Callings are useful, but it would be great if they were less cryptic and gave the passengers more to work with.
They waste so much time trying to figure out the meaning behind the Calling which could be used to prevent catastrophes instead.
Isaiah may be dangerous, but so is Simon White. It’s revealed in the final moments that Ben’s new boss and Erika’s husband (the lady from Grace’s Calling) is the leader of the X’ers, which also explains why he wanted to recruit Ben at the university.
Happy 828 Day! Manifest Season 4 Part 1 Premiere Date, Plot Announced
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
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.
