The season ends with her finding out what actually had happened to Jess and she starts questioning what kind of a person she has become.
What do the Critics Say?
With the exceptional reviews on the first two seasons, the audience really expected the third season to blow their mind. The first two seasons were really well thought out but the third season ended up not being able to satisfy the bar set up by the viewers.
It was the often complaining and stubborn behavior of the primary character and the action wasn’t as much as the previous season. As a season should have its climax, the season lacked it making the people consider the third season not to be so great causing it to get fewer views and not-so-great reviews.
Stream it or Skip it?
If we talk about the series as a whole, it is a good watch if you love crime series. The first two seasons have a really good story that develops just like how the viewers want it to with the action, suspense, and thrill. The third season howsoever did not receive such good reviews because of various reasons.
Apart from that, if you haven’t watched the first two seasons yet, you should definitely go ahead. If the show still keeps you keen and interested, move ahead to season 3.
