Outer Banks Season 3: Storyline
Warning, there are spoilers for season 2! In the season 2 finale , Sarah’s father, Ward, reappears. Sarah has to process this news first, after all, she thought he was dead.
However, her brother Rafe knew he was able to escape from the exploding ship at the last second using scuba gear. Sarah doesn’t think much of Ward’s plan to go abroad. She also learns that Ward is lying to her again. He claims to have given the gold cross to John B, but it is in the ship.
Meanwhile, JJ, John B, Pope and Kiara are hiding in the hold of the ship that also has Sarah’s family on it. John B wants to free Sarah and gets help from the Pogues. With the ship worker Cleo they get an unexpected ally.
The Pogues try to secure Sarah and the cross and free them from Ward’s clutches. A fight ensues. John B is on the verge of getting revenge on Ward for killing his father, Big John, but he lets him live and Sarah is safe. Pope sinks the cross into the sea when the situation becomes hopeless and the Pogues flee. Rafe is able to save the cross and Pope states: “The shit ain’t over yet.”
So in Season 3, the Pogues could be chasing the golden cross. Rafe will go in search of Sarah and follow in his injured father’s footsteps. The Pogues are stranded on a deserted island in the Caribbean and must first find a way out in the upcoming episodes.
In addition, Cleo became a close ally of the Pogues and became a true friend over the course of the second season. Cast member Rudy Pankow also points out that “Cleo is definitely taking the Pogues to the next level. She could even become the new leader of the group,” Pankow said in a clip in which the series’ stars review Season 2 . “The Pogues are survivors and we’re surviving in the Outer Banks. But Cleo could probably easily make her way anywhere.”
In the final minutes of the finale, we also learn that Big John isn’t dead at all. He summons Carla Limbrey over and tells her he knows where the shroud she’s looking for is.
“We knew we had this card up our sleeves. We never knew for sure that we were going to play it, but after writing the sixth or seven episodes of season two, we suddenly realized, maybe the time is right came.” That’s how Big John was able to return from those believed dead in the season 2 finale, executive producer Jonas Pate explained in an interview with online magazine TVLine.
However, Big John’s appearance could change things in season 3. Carla Limbrey was established as the new villain in season 2. And with her, of all people, Big John makes common cause. In a conversation, you learn that Limbrey is on a quest to find the Cross of Santo Domingo, an ancient artifact said to harbor healing powers. Big John might have survived Ward’s attack that way.
Both despise Ward, which may have prompted them to form an alliance. Big John promised Carla his help, but on the condition that she would continue to help his son. So will the previously bitter enemies become allies in Season 3, uniting against Ward Cameron? These questions will probably only be answered when the third season starts.
