'Manifest' Season 2 Episode 4: Major sees through Saanvi's deception and fans are disappointed she got played
When Saanvi walks into the secret lab in her home, she sees that all her research and materials have been stolen, signifying that the Major was still a step ahead
In last week's episode of 'Manifest', Ben and former NSA director Robert Vance — who faked his death after he learned that someone higher up was trying to control the shots — came up with a plan to figure out who Saanvi's leak was.
While initially, they keep Saanvi out of the loop, Ben finally convinces Vance to come clean to her and include her in on the plan. Saanvi then plays a game and figures out that the leak is actually her — she has been telling her "therapist" everything about her research.
When Saanvi tells Vance and Ben, they ask Saanvi to identify her "therapist" among the list of top officials of the Department of Defence. They then realize that Saanvi's "therapist" is the Major herself.
In this week's episode, Saanvi tries to keep the ruse going — speaking of her research while chewing on an apple (while keeping placebo results in her lab at work). However, at the end of the episode, when Saanvi walks into the secret lab in her home, she sees that all her research and materials have been stolen — with an apple left behind, signifying that the Major was still a step ahead of Saanvi.
Fans were disappointed and shocked to learn of the Major's double-deception. One fan tweeted, "Saanvi and Vance were outmaneuvered and I'm so mad!" Another fan tweeted, "Damn. The Major took everything and then took off. But really Saanvi, what did u expect?"
Viewers are left wondering how Vance, Ben and Saanvi can now come back out on top. One fan wrote, "I literally can't. There are too many twists, now the major has all of Saanvi’s research!"
Some fans are already plotting the end of the story and hope that Saanvi gets to pull the metaphorical trigger to bring down the Major. A fan wrote, "I really hope Saanvi gets to be the one to kill the Major when the time comes. She's screwed with her so much, it's only fitting #Manifest."
'Manifest' airs on NBC on Monday nights.
