    We finished season 3 last nigh . I expected the season to end with a showdown between Helen and the Byrdes, but I was expecting it to take more screen time.

    I agree that the season goes to Ben. I saw that actor in Daredevil and I would have never thought he had that kind of range i . It was so good to watch it was painful.

    OMG...it always freaks me out how much she looks like Jane Lynch's super ugly sister!

    There was zero need for the producers to spoil the ending by having Helen ask Nelson if he would tell her if he ever got the order (and he said that he would). Maybe they thought it was a clever way of making it more of a surprise but it had the opposite effect for me...

    I agree Ben was great.

    As for season long cameos, I also enjoyed the therapist, especially when she had the McLaren (sp?)

    Episode 9 was the saddest and most heart breaking tv I can remember ever seeing. It affected me for days and I could not get to the finale until today.

    I couldn't delay watching the final episode of Season 3. I kept thinking,
    Ben's not really dead, they didn't show the henchman actually killing him, just that he was arriving at the restaurant. Maybe the cops from the Walmart happened to show up and foil the execution. Maybe Ben went off on the guy and kicked his ass. Kept hoping that he wasn't really dead. Even the opening scenes of episode 10 went to great lengths to override my denial of what happened.

    Also, couldn't the bullet that killed Helen have harmed Wendy too? Seemed she was standing right next to her.

    Season 3 was terrific and they set it up well for Season 4. I hope a vaccine is ready so they can start (or finish] filming.
    the bipolar brother and therapist demise was expected. I didn’t expect Frank (aka Tommy from “Power”) to make it out alive though.
    I know spoilers are okay but still.

    That Darlene is ruthless... so to speak.
    She walks right up to Frank jr. and exacts revenge for Ruth, then boldly visits Frank sr. and basically says he has two choices, either become partners or go to war.

    Yeah, she is super creepy (sleeping with Wyatt really kicked that up a notch).
    I wanted her to die when Jacob was still around but nope. By the way, I was shocked she told Wyatt the truth about Jacob's death. And even more shocked Wyatt didn't leave her immediately. Black widow alert!

    Depends on how important "millions per year" is to him to continue their partnership.

    Just finished, really enjoyed it.

    Thought Ben was fantastic, although I could see his death coming for about 3 episodes, so didn't really phase me that much when they finally killed him - if anything I thought it dragged out just a bit too much. Wendy should have given up on him as soon as he talked to the lawyers kid.

    I did sort of see the ending coming. I figured either Wendy or Helen would get whacked shortly after arriving in Mexico. Didn't see any way they'd get rid of Wendy though, so that left Helen. I did, however, think that the Byrds kid was actually going to shoot Helen. That would have set up some ****.

    What happened to Rachel that owned the "resort?". I can't remember how her story ended last season.

    Marty blackmails Roy to get the FBI off her back and then Roy is killed by Cade. Rachel is offered rehab in Florida, not sure if she takes it. She is still the owner of the blue cat.

    Didn't see it coming the way it happened, but certainly SOMETHING had to give. And my bet around ep 6 was that she would be the one eliminated.

    I am in the middle of season 3. One thing that I wonder about is the ending of the second (or 3rd) episode of the season. Wendy is back in Chicago and revisits her old house after the occupants go out for awhile. While there she slips something in their milk and, among other things, turns the family photo upside-down. Why? Who are the new inhabitants? What did she put in the milk? Nothing has been mentioned about this in the next several episodes, unless I missed it.

    I missed any follow up to that too. I don't remember her putting anything in their milk, but it's been several weeks since I watched it all. I do remember her being kind of a psycho with their family photo. Didn't she deface it with some red marker or something in addition to turning it upside down.
