In the season 2 finale, the bombshell about Flight 828 was dangled for the viewers to chew on through the hiatus. But the characters on the present have been none the wiser in regards to the improvement. The discovery of the crashed aircraft may spur much more questions, suspicion, and even reverence surrounding the Flight 828 passengers in season 3.

The passengers’ mystical premonitions, or Callings, and the looming Death Date performed closely into Manifest‘s first two seasons. The 828ers have been compelled to observe the voices of their heads, main them to assist others — or typically themselves.

Some of the characters resisted the urge, and others wrestled with doubts in regards to the Callings’ true nature and in the event that they have been coming from a supply of goodness or evil. Still, others have concluded that the one solution to survive is to observe the trail of the Callings. That nugget may result in extra vital storylines about free will, life, demise, and goal.

Saanvi, who has used medication to attempt to eradicate her psychic signs and beat the Death Date, strayed from the Callings and her “do no harm” ethos as a health care provider. When she intimidated, then by chance killed the Major who had stolen her analysis, Saanvi set off what may turn into a really juicy season Three story arc.

“Mythologically, that opens a real can of worms for Saanvi,” mentioned showrunner Jeff Rake in a chat with TV Line. “Not that she was defying the Calling, however she has dedicated an act so antithetical to what the Callings characterize that it’s going to beg the query: Can she ever recuperate? And is there any world wherein she will be able to survive the Death Date, given what she has accomplished? That’s going to weigh on her and everybody who loves her as we transfer into Season 3.”
