The Sinner, season three: A philosophy course disguised as a detective series

Suddenly he stands in front of the door. Nick (Chris Messina), an old College friend, Jamie (Matt Bomer) for decades, has not seen. The private school teacher, now lives in a suburb of a small city, his wife is a week before the birth of their child. Of Nick she has never heard of it. However, it is quite clear that between the two men a particularly intense relationship, a grim tension, the not be able to escape both and which is the engine of the third season of “The Sinner”.

Already at the end of the first episode Nick is dead on the hood of his car, in case of an accident, the windshield catapulted. Jamie, his co-driver, is uninjured. At least, physically. In the course of “The Sinner” will appear in Jack and people in the throat ramming by cutting or a letter opener in the thigh. (Read also: Intense psychological Thriller: “The Sinner”)

That it is his death not an accident, is relatively clear. “The Sinner” was prominent in his previous two seasons already in the Trailer, who is the murderer. The concept of the series is different: It comes after many surprising twists to find out who the perpetrator is, but why he did it. In the Psyche of the murderers descend.

The Sinner: Nietzsche and a murder

In season three, he is now something of a soul mate. It is no Spoiler to reveal that Jamie has killed Nick. As the audience learns at the end of the first episode. Ambrose senses quickly, the small uncertainties in the survey, the Hesitation and Pause. It takes still up to the middle of the season, until the motives for the murder are brought in motion. The more Ambrose goes into the case, the more he learns, how deep is the connection between Jamie and Nick. How much of the change in the whole way, to see the world of the other. There are many conversations that revolve around the same thing: pain, Nietzsche's concept of Supermen. A kind of philosophy course disguised as a detective series.

 

The result is that the voltage level of the third season of “The Sinner” is significantly lower than the two predecessors. “Jamie,” the simple title, is speech dominant, more character study than pure Suspense. Therefore, Showrunner Derek Simonds all that effort into his killer as sympathetic as possible. As a man who eats all his feelings to himself, because he has not learned to deal with them. Trying to escape into a normal life with a wife and child, but also not really at you. The realizes that he can not escape all of their pent-up emotions, until they break in the Form of violence out of him. (Read also: “365 Days” - the most problematic Film of the year)

The third season of “The Sinner” in this sense is almost a Mantra in a circle rotating of toxic masculinity. The appeal arises from the Interaction of Jamie and Ambrose, the rise in your soul life down, and there are some things that you don't want to deal with that track but your life. The resolution of this conflict stands “The Sinner” in season three until the very last minutes. But it is also more satisfying. For both the murderer and the investigators.
