Probably far fetched, but I think this may be about 9/11. 191 passengers (911) Flight 828 (twin 8's, 2 for twin towers) (and all the other 828 appearances trying to tell us something.) Plane hit first tower at 8:46. (8) Second tower fell at 10:28 (28) Twins in the show symbolic of twin towers. The two flights also represent the twin towers and/ or the conventional new vs false flag news theories. The water and American Angels could represent the false flag theory that the planes actually crashed in the water and were replaced with replicas for the "greater good" of the nation. Going along with the conventional news theory, they are still American Angels. Even if it's not the main plot of the show, it could be like a Stanley Kubrick thing. I know, probably not, but could be...

0:50 - Was Saanvi's "co-worker" in this scene a doctor? I also got the impression that the brain scan she was showing him was her own; because there was no mention of whose it was, neither did her co-worker ask. I even zoomed in on the close-up looking for the patient's name on the scan; and there was none. If he was a medical professional working in that facility, it seems highly unlikely that he'd have let that little detail go; because he'd be wanting to charge the patient for "consultation fees," lol.

He was the head of the neurology department at the hospital. I think I recall her passing off the brain scan as a patient, but you're right, he didn't charge for his consultation. Hmmm.

Good episode of Exploring Manifest, but unfortunately a rather weak episode of the actual show. And that makes two relatively weak episodes in a row, in my opinion. I read today that the showrunner has a six season idea for the story, but I think it would've worked much better as a 10-episode limited series. As it stands, it's like a mash-up of The X-Files, This Is Us and CSI, but any time the story strays from the central mystery (which is often) I begin to lose interest.

​+sorenpx My apologies in advance for the length of this reply; but watching the fifth episode last night has only served to deepen my concerns in this area. "...the overly PC vibe of the last episode. It was definitely trying to send a social message, no doubt about that...." Well, to give an example for comparision, mainstream viewers of Christian movies often complain that the stories, characters and plot arcs are "heavy-handed" and "lack subtlety"; but it's because they're inspired by and promote a worldview that they don't subscribe to (and are neither at all sympathetic towards). So they'll often criticize the acting, the lighting, the special effects (or lack thereof); or the pace of the story, etc. -- anything to avoid acknowledging that they're just not willing to consider the gospel's relevance to their lives. Since they don't move in those circles, they don't realize that yes, there really _are_ people who would naturally take certain courses of action; or think to pray in given situations; or say such-and-such in accordance with their belief system. They also rarely consider that most of these movies are filmed by indie producers on more modest funding, not Hollywood blockbuster budgets; and as such cannot realistically be expected to compete with such releases. So, getting back to _Manifest_ (and this episode more in particular)... Okay, the series opens with a pilot episode that starts out highlighting a Bible verse (Romans 8:28), along with a fairly traditional, loving family (mom, dad and kids), a mature, praying grandmother who loves them all and really seems to take her faith seriously. This is shortly followed by a supernatural event (or at the very least, is unexplainable by any known laws of science); after which the main characters from the miraculously recovered plane hear voices in their heads that mysteriously lead them to act heroically and/or do works of goodwill. A little bit odd, maybe, to more conservative sensibilities; but so far so good. In fact, all within the same first episode the series' main character even visits a church, talks with her pastor, studies the verse in question, and is encouraged to take the Bible with her "as long as you make good use of it" or words to that effect (her minister says). Compare and contrast that initial premise with this, the fourth episode; where the show's writers introduce Thomas, a gay Jamaican stowaway on the plane who escapes government officials, gets misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and eventually winds up at the Bethesda fountain in New York City looking for his lost male lover, Leo (whom we shortly learn from his stewardess cousin, Bethany has gone missing two years ago). Michaela (the main female detective character who had supposedly experienced a personal revival of her Christian faith just three episodes prior) quickly reassures Thomas that she'll do everything in her power to find Leo and get them back together again—presumably for their planned wedding, which would not have been allowed in Jamaica (or whatever "persecution" Bethany earlier lamented -- but didn't specifically identify-- in their home country). As a plot device working up to this conclusion, we have vivid visions of an androgynous-looking statue of a female angel that appears (in slightly different form) to both Michaela and medical researcher Saanvi, vaguely telling Michaela to "Save him!". My issue (in event someone tries to intentionally take my post out-of-context) is not that these three characters worked together to help relocate a fellow human being who was cold, hungry, disoriented and obviously needed to be protected from wandering about on the streets half-clothed in a crime-prone inner-city area late at night. It was where Bethany waxes eloquent (with such animated emphasis) about "Angels in America" a 1980's AIDS'-themed play by gay playwright Tony Kushner; and a Central Park statue "The Angel of the Waters" (sculpted by a controversial 19th century libertine lesbian artist named Emma Stebbins); and how all these details supposedly miraculously "fit together" to help them find Thomas. This part of the storyline came off as both contrived and forced. Meanwhile the viewer of a more conservative faith orientation (who has been appealed to and led on by the initial episodes) is watching this and thinking, "Okay, alright -- we *Get it* already--Enough!" The clear implied "social message" of "Unclaimed Baggage" was that God must naturally place His stamp of approval upon the practice of same-sex intimate relationships—the majority of church history, tradition, and (most importantly) Scriptural teaching be damned—since He obviously allowed His angels to supernaturally intervene in order to help them in this quest toward reuniting two young male lovers. It is not only controversial, but misleading, divisive and insulting toward the sensibilities of the more conservative viewing audience they appealed to bolster their ratings earlier in the series. >"I suppose whether or not that's a social message you're interested in hearing is up to each viewer to decide..." The thing is (regardless of where you personally stand on same-sex relationship issues), not every viewer got a fair _chance_ to decide, because the direction of the series has involved "bait-and-switch," wouldn't you agree? Conservative viewers don't appreciate having liberal political or social agendas shoved down our throats any more than liberals like religious ideas being forced on _them_ —and on network television, it seems to happen to conservatives *way more* often. In the fifth episode [spoiler] the father/grandfather of the series, Steve, is actually encouraging Michaela to pursue a relationship with her former fiancée, who has been married to her best friend Lourdes for over three years! [/spoiler] Somehow it seems his late wife's faith apparently didn't influence her husband very much, since he's in essence advocating his daughter initiate an affair with a married man which will likely lead to divorce. :( This was not the way his character was presented in the pilot episode (albeit we hadn't seen much of him since; and perhaps that in itself was a bit telling). In case the earlier LGBT promotional/endorsement theme seemed to be a "one-off," we also learn in Episode 5 that [spoiler] Bethany is a lesbian who is married to a woman. In this episode they are depicted kissing (romantically) outside on a residential street.[/spoiler]. >"The thing is, I'm rooting for this show. I want it to succeed. But I'm not going to pretend it's succeeding when it's not, and right now it's starting to feel like a missed opportunity. But we'll see if the writers can right the ship. I'm committed to at least getting to the mid-season point and then we'll evaluate and see if I want to continue beyond that." Ditto. I really wanted to like this series as well. The premise of the lost plane miraculously reappearing five years later with passengers saved from what easily could've been a very tragic death was very intriguing and seemed to imply a storyline that was at least respectful toward (if not affirming) viewers of faith. I eagerly had looked forward to new episodes. But the direction this show has been heading more recently just reinforces my earlier decision to avoid most all television drama series; because no matter how they promote them in the beginning, Hollywood only has one agenda and it's not one that's in any way considerate to their more traditional Christian viewers.

ThatClassic70sGirl I also noticed the overly PC vibe of the last episode. It was definitely trying to send a social message, no doubt about that. I suppose whether or not that's a social message you're interested in hearing is up to each viewer to decide. I probably would've given the pilot and the second episode a 7. Or at worst a 6.5. I enjoyed them well enough and was intrigued by the mystery. But these last two eps are more like 5.5, and that's just not good enough to sustain my interest. The thing is, I'm rooting for this show. I want it to succeed. But I'm not going to pretend it's succeeding when it's not, and right now it's starting to feel like a missed opportunity. But we'll see if the writers can right the ship. I'm committed to at least getting to the mid-season point and then we'll evaluate and see if I want to continue beyond that.

+sorenpx "Also, I'm not sure how useful a "discussion group" is that disallows any criticism of the thing that's being discussed." Precisely. While my misgivings about the show are different (mostly I dislike the biblical inaccuracies present in the spiritual-oriented elements; and the in-your-face PC-vibe this episode in particular seems to be emanating), I agree that there is no give-and-take in the discussion if every participant is expected to do nothing but cheerlead every plot arc and character development.

But that doesn't mean I think it's perfect or that I have to be happy about the direction it seems to be going in. Also, I'm not sure how useful a "discussion group" is that disallows any criticism of the thing that's being discussed.

So do I, Desert Child! We should find out more in next week's episode 5. It's largely focused on Cal, and NBC promo says, "It's all connected." I think Cal is the central figure. Afterall, the Zealot Woman in a previous episode said "He is risen. He is not here." It kind of reminds me of the man in Stephen King's book telling the guy who goes back int time to save President Kennedy from being shot, "You don't belong here."

+Manifest828 Website - Not only that, but there's really "nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9). That's what highlights the excesses of modern (so-called) "copyright laws" that are used to stifle innovation and create artificial scarcity, thus stiffing the end consumers (but that's getting into another topic). If there's anything I can't stand, it's when someone watches a TV show or movie, then cynically makes the comment, "Oh, I knew how it was going to end after the first ten minutes!" Whether they actually did or not, it's annoying because everything is a "trope" to them; and not only can they not just relax and watch the show; but they have to ruin everyone else's enjoyment of said program, as well.

Could the four-foot cherubs (described in your video) correspond to the story lines of Harvey (temperance), Michaela (purity), Cal (healing) and Ben (peace)?] In episode one Harvey asked for a drink, Michaela said to Isaiah she was not pure, Cal has leukemia, and Ben has marital problems with Grace and difficulties with Olive. Probably a bit too simplistic or contrived. Just a thought.

Thanks for the information (or perhaps I should say "refresher") on the Biblical account of the Pool of Bethesda in John's Gospel concerning the healing of the paralytic. Interesting that they actually created a symbolic homage to the story through the Bethesda fountain commemorating the New York aqueduct. On a related note, I wasn't previously familiar at all with this "Angels of America" play, nor was I acquainted with the statues of angels present in New York. I made a note of them while rewatching the episode; but hadn't gotten around to researching the connection. I thought it probably had something to do with the two homosexual characters in the episode of _Manifest_ (since Bethany mentioned them while riding in the car with Saanvi and Michaela, looking for Thomas); but wasn't interested enough in whatever subliminal pop-culture interpretation the series producers were trying to communicate to investigate further. However what I did pick up on is that both Saanvi and Michaela referred to the angelic figures (in the brief, fleeting visions that they saw) in the feminine. This was interesting to me for two reasons. Firstly, when it unexpectedly popped up on the screen for the very first time to Saanvi (in the hospital), the split-second close-up of the hollow-eyed face (other than just being plain creepy) instinctively but clearly appeared (to me) to represent an androgynous male. At least that was the impression I took from both appearances based on the hairstyle, the slightly angular neck and cheekbones, etc.; and then later with the muscularity/figure proportions present on the fountain statue. Secondly, although in both two and three-dimensional artistic representations angels are often depicted as adult women (or sometimes children) , in the Bible (which played a significant part in setting the tone for the pilot episode, with the Romans 8 reference; and Michaela's mother's faith serving as an inspiration for her own) they are exclusively described and presented as male. The likely reasons for this, along with the origin, scope and mission of angels are examined in the following brief articles: http://carm.org/are-angels-male-or-female-in-the-bible http://www.gotquestions.org/angels-male-female.html

Desert Child - That's an interesting theory, except for one thing: Just as Michaela accepts that she was "called" by God's Word (in Romans 8:28, consistent with what was revealed in Episode 1), so it also teaches, "Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law." (Romans 3:27-28) Therefore if anyone wants resolution for past sins or failings, whatever, all that is required is that they believe and be thankful for their second chance. "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6).

+Manifest828 Website Did anyone else think that Olive (in that scene) was pretty tall and maybe a bit on the 'mature' side for a 10-year old? After all, that's Cal's age now (or roundabouts), and he doesn't look that old. How likely is it for fraternal twins to be that different in appearance?

I agree. In Episode 4 I thought it might be foretelling or symbolic that after 10 year old Olive's balsam wood airplane broke up (when the bike ran over it), Ben made everything right by taking it to the water and having it float.

As always, great video. I am afraid that this week, my being a Whovian got in the way of the story. All I could think of was the Weeping Angels on Doctor Who! On a serious note, I really hope the show doesn’t go too spiritual. I am not going to be happy if they put God as the reason for all this in the end. That would be an easy answer and, so far, this show is being written smarter than that. I hope that makes sense. I am not trying to trash religion but I just like my sci-fi to be crafted with non religious undertones.
