I Know This Much Is True Episode 3 Spoilers
Thomas’s social worker, Lisa Sheffer, tells Dominick that after the 15-day stay at Hatch, a review board will assess his brother’s situation. Then, the decision will be made to keep him at Hatch for the next year or to let him go back to Settle. In the next episode of ‘I Know This Much Is True’, we’ll get to see what’s in store for Thomas. Dr. Patel had said that she was making some progress with him. Will this get better in two weeks, or will another of Thomas’s bouts be his undoing this time?
Apart from the challenges and losses in their adulthoods, the show also has a thread running back into the past. In the first episode, we saw their household’s situation and how their step-father treated them when they were children. In the second episode, we saw the trip to New York and how Dominick felt about it. In the third episode, we expect a similar flashback that throws some light on the nature of their relationship and Dominick’s state of mind about being responsible for his brother. It might jump a few years ahead, and the adolescence of the twins can come into focus.
Apart from this, we also expect to know more about Hatch. Clearly, Dominick is wary of the place. His brother had been in a facility before, but this one makes him as agitated as Thomas. Is Dominick paranoid about it? Is Lisa Sheffer right in saying that it might actually be a good place for Thomas? Or is there something about the whole thing that rubs Dominick the wrong way? Will his intuition be proven correct?
