‘The Sinner‘ returned with its third season to provide viewers with yet another self-sustained story of a seemingly random crime and the mystery around it. The show has been termed a “whydunnit” for its approach to the murder mystery story. Rather than focusing on who committed the crime in question, the series takes a look at why the person committed the crime and the past events that led to it.
Each season of the show depicts a different story. The third season of the show sees Matt Bomer play Jamie: a Dorchester resident who survives a car crash with his long-lost “friend,” Nick. However, Jamie, who has had a suspensefully troubled relationship with his “friend” lets Nick die by not calling 911 immediately after the car crash, on purpose.
The first episode sets up the above-mentioned premise. The second episode which was aired on February 13, 2020, however, is the one that really takes things up a notch. It sheds some light on what happened a few days before the car crash. The episode ends with Jamie almost choking an old, dying man to death at a hospital…

The Sinner Season 3 Episode 3 Spoilers: What to Expect?
As mentioned earlier, the second episode of the third season of ‘The Sinner’ ends with Jamie almost choking an old man to death at the hospital. Some viewers might think that the third episode could feature the event’s aftermath. However, that might be unlikely. Nobody at the hospital seems to notice Jamie having choked the old man in his room. Plus, the dying man does not seem to be in the physical condition to be able to make an official complaint.
That event most probably serves to be a depiction of the psychological state of Jamie. Jamie has been shown becoming progressively more disturbed. In the third episode, his mental state will definitely worsen. Don’t believe us? Read the episode’s blurb: “Ambrose investigates Jamie’s past; Leela gives birth as Jamie’s anxiety reaches a breaking point.”
As you can see, Leela would also be giving birth in the episode. There is a high possibility that Jamie’s anxiety and hallucinations make him do something truly shocking. He has been barely able to control his actions after hallucinating Nick. Maybe he gets pushed to do something irreversible? Something that could hamper his and Leela’s relationship. Or worse, Leela’s pregnancy…
The third episode promises to be the floodgate opener. To be more clear, the third episode will most likely see Jamie “losing it” and becoming a psychotic danger to society. Again, don’t believe us. Read the blurb for the fourth episode of the series: “Ambrose pursues Jamie through New York City and tries to prevent another homicide.”
Apart from that, we can expect Ambrose investigating the mysterious grave-sized hole that someone dug on Sonya’s property. Will there be another person involved in this mystery? In all likelihood though, we might find out that it was Jamie who dug the hole. He was out of the house for a few hours at that time. Remember Jamie and Leela’s argument?
