‘Manifest’: A supernatural mystery with the perfect cast
The show revolves around a Montego Air Flight 828 from Jamaica to New York City that encounters extreme turbulence for a short period of time. At the point when they land, the travellers and the crew are told by NSA chief Robert Vance that more than five and a half years have passed while they were still in the flight flying, during which they were all assumed to be dead.
As they reintegrate themselves into present-day society, these former passengers of Flight 828 start to confront the way that their lives, friends, and family are no longer how to they used to be. Adding to the problem, they all start hearing guiding voices and having dreams depicting events that are yet to happen in the near future.
This intriguing premise is what makes ‘Manifest’ a show definitely worth your time. It never fails to come up with new plot twists that keep you at the edge of your seat wanting more.
Season 3: What’s to come?
“… The identical tail fin from Flight 828 is going to captivate the imagination and the scrutiny of the entire globe because if it is confirmed to be the actual piece, that obviously presents a metaphysical impossibility”
This means that it will result in reigniting global scrutiny and also global fears of Flight 828 and its passengers.
Rake also said that the love triangle between Michaela, Zeke, and Jared will continue despite Michaela and Zeke’s wedding in season 2. He expressed,
“Now Season 3 is about what this triangle can look like. These are three adults … The question moving forward is, can Michaela find a way to love both of these men in different ways? Can these two men be adult enough to maintain a friendship even while they both love the same woman?”
Since Major died in season 2, Saanvi will also be forced to come to terms with her actions and guilt. She will also be seen investigating the tailfin with Ben. The mystery behind Zeke’s survival after almost dying while saving Cal from drowning will also be revealed in the upcoming season. Furthermore, the Stone family is all set to face more challenges than ever before.
