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!
When Will ‘The Resident’ Return After the Time Jump?
If you turned on the TV tonight hoping to catch a new episode of The Resident, you were in for quite the surprise.
The medical drama did not air a new episode this week, October 26.
That’s quite a bummer considering The Resident Season 5 Episode 5 — the show’s annual Halloween episode — featured a jaw-dropping time-jump that brought the staff of Chastain three years into the future.
Right before the reveal, the series also gave Conrad, his co-workers, and fans, closure to Nic’s death.
Since the series is taking a little break, we’ll have to wait to see what everyone is up to several years down the road.
When can we expect new episodes?
The short answer is that the upcoming episode will air after the World Series.
If you’re not a sports fan, you might find yourself wondering when that is.
The October 26 episode was preempted by Game 1 of the World Series.
The earliest the show could return is Tuesday, November 2. That’s if and only if the World Series wraps up within five games or less.
However, if it spans six games, The Resident will return with a new episode on November 9.
Basically, you’re going to have to pay attention to sports for the next few weeks to ensure that you don’t miss The Resident Season 5 Episode 6.
Here’s the synopsis for the episode to get you excited about what’s to come, although, I know you’re probably still buzzing from the major twist.
