"In The Dark" Season 3: Murphy Finally Has A "Come To Jesus" Moment


Season 3 of CW's "In The Dark" is currently available on NetFlix. Note: People sometimes confuse this show with Hulu's horror anthology "Into The Dark" or the German time travel series "Dark" (which is EXCELLENT BTW). 

For those unfamiliar with "In The Dark", it's about  a blind woman named Murphy (played by Perry Mattfeld)  who is a hot mess. She drinks too much, she sleeps around, she's a jerk to her friends. But Murphy's one redeeming quality is she doesnt give up. She's also smart as a whip. Season 1 has Murphy investigating her friend's Tyson's murder.  

In season 2, Murphy's life gets even more complicated. Murphy, her bestie/roomie Jess, new boss Felix and on again/off again boyfriend Max are drawn into working for a drug lord (Nia). They use the seeing eye dog center New Hope to store drugs. And if that wasnt complicated enough, the FBI agent investigating the case (Josh) develops feelings for Murphy. Murphy and crew end up taking down crooked cop Dean. 

Next the group is on the lam after killing Nia. It was technically Jess who pulled the trigger but can we all agree that Nia was a very bad person? Season 3 has them moving from one close call to another. They try to outsmart Josh, Dean's ex partner Gene and fellow cop (and love interest of Darnell, Sarah. Remember Darnell is also Nia's brother.  They also need to avoid drug dealer Josiah if they want to stay alive. The group ends up hanging out with Felix's sister Leslie (who is a lawyer). She starts up a relationship with Max which makes it's very uncomfortable between her and Murphy. Jess (who is at first was believed killed in a fire) was discovered alive but later goes MIA. Murphy vows to find her at all costs. Along the way Mprhy ends up investigating the disappearance of a girl named Jennifer Walker. The truth of that story is pretty yucky. The truth about Jess is even worse.  


Grade: 3 1/2 Monsters (out of 5). Unfortunately the show didnt hold my interest this season. It's party because there are too many episodes (13) for the material. Yes, I know CW has a certain number of episodes they have to provide but there's just not enough content here. Our gang wanders from one manufactured crisis to another. The season could have been cut in half and would have been much better. We know Murphy manipulates everyone around her but the rest of the gang are about as bad. It's not like she held a gun to anyone's throat. Everyone (the police) are acting like she's some sort of criminal mastermind. It was interesting to see Murphy's "come to Jesus" moment when she finally got an idea of how her behavior is affecting others. However, the whole situation with Jess this season seems completely out of left field. The writers seem to have done a 160 on her character in order just to create more drama. Previously their relationship was the most consistent thing in Murphy's world   

CW has renewed "In The Dark" for a season 4. TBH I'm not sure I will watch it. This might be the end of the line for me. There's too much frenetic activity with too little payoff. Sorry, Pretzel.
