  • Charles Moore Oct 8, 2019 at 12:25 am on The Mystery Behind Flight 828I recently finished listening to all of the interviews by the cast and Jeff Rake at NYCC 2019. When I finished listening, I begin hearing strange voices inside my head "calling" out to me. I was advised that whoever or whatever caused Flight 828 to mysteriously vanish and then miraculously return years later is no longer important ... or relevant. I was informed the only thing fans should strenuously focus on now is the expiration death date. Nothing else matters. Except for what happens due to the cause and effect relationships resulting from the S1 finale cliffhangers.
  • Charles Moore Oct 7, 2019 at 2:46 pm on The Mirror Factor (107.15)Fiona Clarke said, "When we learn how to harness the power of collective consciousness with the Mirror Factor—Checkmate." After playing a game of chess, Thomas told Cal to work on his endgame. Is Clarke's "Checkmate" reference connected to Cal's "endgame?" Out of all of the characters, main or recurring, other than Saanvi, Fiona Clarke remains my favorite. IMHO taking Clarke's character off the chess board figuratively killed off one of the most impressive and intriguing characters on the show.
  • Charles Moore Oct 3, 2019 at 1:45 pm on Billboard Sign (113.4)"It questions that they are even human." Questions that make sense to me. Juxtapose all of the unanswered questions about the 828 passengers with the covert activities of the Major and others, then why wouldn't the Red "X" become symbolic of the public's fears and distrust? Two things. When it comes to the return of Flight 828, who is responsible for reassuring the public that everyone is safe? And what specifically is the "who is responsible" doing to assure the safety of both the public and the 828 returnees? Under the circumstances presented, major conflict is unavoidable. Especially with the...
  • Charles Moore Sep 25, 2019 at 1:02 pm on How one of Cal’s Drawings in Se 1 Ep 12 Reveals Manifest’s Twists and TurnsCal's drawings have been very intriguing ... and at times highly entertaining. His (crayon) drawing at the Red Hook facility which helped Robert Vance's Tactical Team locate the passengers being held captive was drama at its very best. His drawing showing Ben, Grace, and Michaela watching themselves in a mirror deserves a standing ovation. "As a result, we may soon find that future episodes will revisit everything that we have seen this season from a different vantage point." I hope that you are correct. Revisiting two of Cal's drawings from a different vantage point would substantially help. The mystery figure...
  • Charles Moore Sep 24, 2019 at 10:49 pm on What are the Callings? Who are the Called? For what Purpose?"Some callings are sent privately to one person. Other callings have a party line feel to them." Michaela shared callings with the other 19 passengers who were compelled to return to the airport to witness the plane's explosion on the tarmac; and she also shared callings with Ben, Saanvi, and Zeke and the passengers held hostage at the Red Hook facility. Cal has shared callings with Marko, Michaela, and Zeke. Cal also shared mutual callings with the 20 passengers at the airport and with the passengers held captive at Red Hook. So, yes, some callings have definitely had a party...
  • Charles Moore Sep 21, 2019 at 4:28 pm on Index to Manifest Season 1 Callings by Episode, Type, Character, and ScenesDuring an interview with TV Guide, showrunner Jeff Rake was asked, "How the passengers interpret the Calling seems to be key in understanding the series so what can you tell me about the Calling? Is it omniscient? What does it want?" Rake's answer, in part, was, "The way you posed the question, 'what does the Calling want?' presumes that the Calling is something. That presumes that the Calling is omniscient. It may be, it may not be." After reading Rake's "non-answer," I'm more confused about Callings now than before I read the interview. My interpretation of Rake's "answer" is that...
  • Charles Moore Sep 16, 2019 at 4:33 am on Passengers are called (101.24)In this scene, Michaela is the Narrator and is speaking in the past tense. Which means her voice is speaking from some future point in the upcoming timeline. When and where in the timeline will probably remain a secret. But are the passengers' "callings" a threat to the world or a cure for some imminently impending disaster? After all, the plane was destroyed for a reason. Were the passengers of 828 gifted with "callings" accidentally or have they been "collectively" programmed by an invisible celestial entity for some sinister or benevolent purpose? Perhaps, the real threat to the world is...
  • Charles Moore Sep 15, 2019 at 4:42 am on Treating Cal’s Illness (106.15)What makes Cal the unquestioned "special returnee" among all of the other 828 returnees? He became gravely ill when Marko Valeriev was tortured. He later experienced frostbite because of Zeke. But nothing happened to him when Harvey Stein committed suicide. Nor has he had any callings involving Fiona Clarke (who professedly didn't have callings). So, why has he been delegated "powers" that no one else aboard 828 apparently have? According to Cal, "it's all connected." Connected to him? Or connected to some unknown entity? How and when did he receive his special powers? Will the story explaining why Cal is...
