The third season of See sees the Payan Kingdom facing the threat of Tormada, who brings earth-shattering bombs created using Jerlamarel’s kids and knowledge from the ancient texts. The third season is now streaming on Apple TV+.
Tormada, a Trivantian scientist who spent years studying, has now come up with a way to ensure that the whole world is in his hands. With the help of Jerlamarel’s sighted children, he created bombs that can destroy a building in one blow.
The news that Tormada’s bombs are real is confirmed, and the Payan Kingdom prepares to face what is about to come amidst its negotiations with the Trivantians.
In order to tackle this situation, Baba Voss leads a group to the House of Enlightenment to destroy the bombs before Tormada could use them, while Harlan, with the help of Trovere, tries to figure out if Tormada’s rogue faction really exists or not.
Kofun, on his side, adjusts to being a father to a son, while Maghra wrestles with the decisions revolving around her crazy sister, Sibeth Kane, and the Witchfinders, as she tries to fulfill the duties of a queen.
From the very first season till now, Jason Momoa has given his heart to the portrayal of Baba Voss, a character that can go to lengths to protect his family.
The mere presence of Momoa defines what See, as a show, is. The moment he is absent, the show loses its strength.
Similarly, the cunning Sibeth Kane, played by Sylvia Hoeks, is another important character the show can’t lose. The psychotic nature of the character portrayed by Hoaeks is at its peak this season.
The third season has another villain in the form of Tormada, played by David Hewlett. Despite that, Hoaeks’ character often overshadows him, leaving a mark that no one can compete with her.
Nesta Cooper and Archie Madekwe as Haniwa and Kofun weren’t able to bring anything new to the table, at least for the first half of the season.
When Madekwe’s character later develops from a father to a son, the actor slowly and effectively transitions the emotions of a young boy into a man who is a future king.
Michael Raymond-James as Ranger was an intriguing addition. A character that would be adored by the fans upon meeting. The actor gives a rusty mannerism to the Ranger, owing to his dark past.
The season equally distributes the elements of action and drama throughout the eight episodes. The viewers get some episodes completely based on character development, and then there are some dedicated to well-choreographed sword fights.
The politics and twists are well-executed, especially with the sub-plots that involved Harlan and Trovere, as they were headed towards the Trivantian empire to learn more about Tormada’s group.
Despite being the final season, the show has continued to reveal more about this dystopian future, especially the areas and the kinds of people that could exist in a world like this.
The show has left these new areas untouched. Thus, leaving the viewers in a mystery, and asking for more.
Though the third season balances its storytelling well, there are a few episodes that can be deemed unnecessary fillers.
Apart from that, the third season was also supposed to answer a number of things from the show’s past. Things such as the existence of guns in this world.
For now, See seems to have pushed that plot point to the possible spin-off in favor of wrapping up Baba Voss and Sibeth Kane’s stories.
See season 3 comes out as a better outing than the first two seasons as it builds itself towards a satisfying conclusion that paves way for a bigger world that Apple TV+ could explore.
