If you missed out on any episodes of Manifest, don’t worry, this week’s episode reiterated the same message: it’s all connected.

We’re still unclear as to the “how” it’s all connected, but I guess it’s going to take a little bit longer to figure that part out.

We’ve seen Mic’s signs, visions and voices manifest themselves in various ways. The most recent was a Jumanji-sounding heartbeat that attracted her to a young boy whose grandfather was murdered.

During dinner, Mic heard the heartbeat and knew that he was plotting to get revenge instead of justice.

Similarly, she was able to locate the murderer after he’d been let go by following the signs.

In a rather unexpected twist, the kid had Evie’s heart. Does the mystery have something to do with the crash? Were they all destined to be on that plane?

The mystery surrounding UDS deepens. Ben suggests they follow a paper trail and gets a job he’s way overqualified for to do some digging.

Of course, UDS is restricted to supervisors because they have something to hide.

But Ben, a man on a mission to save his son who is telling him that something bad is going to happen, is willing to get caught in the crossfires.

He not only swipe’s his boss’ ID to look into USD, but he also manipulates an IT employee so that he can hack the system and get intel on Dr. Fiona Clarke and S.P.

I don’t want to be nit-picky but there’s no way in hell it would be that easy for Ben to get his hands on restricted information. And even if he was crafty enough, there’s no way it wouldn’t trigger some kind of alarms or red flags.

Like Cal told him, Vance is no longer the bad guy as he truly believes Ben is onto something an there is some covert agency that had kidnapped the passengers.

However, this also means Vance is going to get murder fairy soon, probably once he figures the whole mystery out.

Dr. Fiona Clarke is not fooling anyone when she says her studies were funded by a non-profit. Is it just a coincidence that she’s studying about how minds can connect with each other?

She knows more than she’s leading on. I can see her being responsible for kidnapping the passengers as a way to further the research into the Singularity Project.

Otherwise, why did she utter “we’re all in this together,” during a flight flashback?

So yes, while Ben finally got a job, figured out a little bit more about UDS and Dr. Clarke, and found out that Vance is on his side, we still don’t know what’s going on with Cal, where Marco is, what these signs are, or what happened to them on the flight.

We’re moving at a glacial pace here and while my interest is still holding, I really can’t figure out where this show is heading or if it still knows its own agenda.

Does anyone else think the hubbub surrounding the mystery is kind of dragging?

While tonight’s episode provided more answers about the core mystery, many of the “personal” relationships were lacking.

Also, I’m really hoping that after all is said and done, this isn’t a government conspiracy because can you say lame?

I’m with Ben’s new boss, I want aliens!

I also want more flashbacks from the plane that last longer than 5-seconds in total.

Other Thoughts

  • Ben and Saanvi spent more time together this week which means he didn’t have to deal with Grace’s uptight mindset about Cal.
  • It’s hilarious that Ben thought he could just blend in. Earth to Ben, you’re from Flight 828 dude.
  • Grace really doesn’t have any cares about her brother. Are these two even twins? She’s more concerned with her new family with Danny.
  • I don’t see how Mic and Lourdes are friends — there is absolutely no chemistry between them.
  • Jared is smitten with Mic and it’s beyond obvious. Also, I’m glad she’s letting him in on what’s going on with her and that he was honest about the NSA approaching him to be their spy.

What did you think about the episode?

Are you getting tired of not knowing what’s really happening to our passengers?

Let’s go back, back to the beginning of Manifest Season 1.

Manifest Unmasked: Griffin’s Calling, the Wolf and Terrorist Attacks



Manifest Hard Landing

I had high hopes for the penultimate episode in terms of answers, however, Manifest Season 1 Episode 15 only raised more sinister questions with the introduction of James Griffin.

Though we still don’t understand much about the callings, we’ve always known that we could rely on them as warnings for what’s to come next.

Manifest – Upgrade (1×14)



Manifest Upgrade

To be brutally honest, Manifest Season 1 Episode 14 felt like a bit of a cop-out.

Much of the drama surrounded Adrian and his Church of the Returned, but other than him being a con-artist and wolf in sheep’s who scammed naive people out of their money, it didn’t feed much into the main storyline.

I really thought that the “wolf” comment would be connected to Cal and Zeke’s calling, but alas, I was wrong.
