Manifest Season 3 Episode 7 and 8 Review: While the story of Rachel and her abusive husband could have easily continued as an episode of the week in previous seasons, here she is an example of what could go wrong if an 828er makes the wrong decision in the eyes of God, Ma’at or whoever it is. Setting up Egan as a potential leader within the group is also a great way to remind Manifesto viewers that, as Mick points out, Ben doesn’t have to be the only one trying to come up with answers. The Series is available on NBC.
Manifest Season 3 Episode 7 and 8 Review:
On the other hand, Zeke points out to Cal that using the calls for personal gain, which Egan has admitted to doing, isn’t cool. In that sense, Manifest uses his subplots to good effect, creating a love interest in Jared (and maybe even Cal) while simultaneously showing us the downsides of Zeke’s empathy as he realizes that Mick is jealous. Likewise, we are reassured by Angelina’s ability to calm Eden even as the series scares us with her to forge a new identity through Olive’s clothes and makeup.
It is not always easy to sow smaller conflicts without turning away from the main thing. Also witness the new direction for Saanvi, who has gone from persona non grata with Dr. Patel to the hero of the team. On the one hand, this created an unbiased justification for using Ben as a test subject, and on the other hand, the seesaw put Saanvi in the position of keeping secrets. Not to mention Dr. Patel’s goal of “creating miracles” sounds dangerously similar to the feats proposed by the Major, who surely would have been aware of the Ark planks that surfaced seven years ago.
This juxtaposition of religious artifacts and scientific study works well with Ben’s return to cynicism; he trusts the calls but doesn’t believe everyone on flight 828 will responsibly follow them. Perhaps, then, it should be easier to accept the “fairy dust” of the sapphire theory given how it is presented as a chemical residue. But it’s not. If a fan Manifesto tried to describe what was going on on this show to the uninitiated, they would sound like crazy. It’s still a nice roller coaster ride, but a loop or two is fine. Nothing more than this upsets the balance.
