Jeff Rake celebrated 828 Day with an enlightening video for ‘Manifest’ fans

On Aug. 28, now affectionately dubbed 828 Day in honor of Manifest’s Flight 828 mystery, Rake appeared in a special Twitter video. “Hey. I’m Manifest showrunner Jeff Rake. Happy 828 Day,” began Rake before diving in.

In the video, the show boss identified eight key plot points from season 2 of the series. From story arcs to theological references, Rake shared some meaty tidbits. It would stand to reason that these details could factor heavily into the narrative for season 3.

Here are the story elements that Rake called out as “eight things you may have noticed last season.”

  1. “Flight 828 and Al-Zuras’ ship briefly existed in the same moment in time, both in 2013 and in the 16th century.
  2. While Flight 828 was missing, Olive and Grace received a tarot card symbolizing hope.
  3. The Major, Katherine Fitz is a 3-star General who specializes in psychological warfare.
  4. Zeke and Ben have now experienced the same glow that Cal saw out the airplane window in season 1.
  5. The Major wanted to infect people with the Callings, not cure people of the Callings.
  6. The meth dealers who kidnapped Cal appeared to drown in an icy lake in the season 2 finale. But their bodies were never found.
  7. The boat that recovered the Montego Air tail-fin is called the Tesoro de San Antonio, the Treasure of San Antonio. St. Anthony is the Patron Saint of Lost Things
  8. Dark lightning struck the lake just before Cal’s kidnappers, Jace, Kory, and Pete fell through.”

Rake pinpointed key details and thought-provoking threads that the show will (hopefully) pick up in season 3. And fans who didn’t spot those eight nuggets the first time around are in luck. Subscribers can head over to Peacock TV to watch previous episodes of Manifest.

Before signing off of the video, Rake thanked fans and encouraged viewers to stay safe during this time. To drive home the point, he even donned a snazzy face mask, a practice that has become common during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Thanks for listening, everyone. Stay safe,” said Rake as he closed out the illuminating video.
