From Jamie and Callie’s breakup to Marianna splitting up with Raj and Mallika in her own crisis. The premiere of Good Trouble Season 3 sets up a lot of stories for the rest of the season. Created by Joanne Johnson, Bradley Bredeweg, and Peter Paige, Good Trouble is an American Drama that serves as a spin-off for the Freeform show The Fosters. So far, the series has completed its two successful seasons. Last week it returned with a third consecutive season continuing where it left off. Good Trouble has been applauded for bringing a good comedy touch to trials and tribulations faced by Gen Z.
Good Trouble follows a story set in few years after The Fosters. It tells the tale of Adams Foster siblings Callie and Mariana. Both of them leave for Los Angeles to pursue their future life. While Callie becomes a law clerk, Mariana thrives as a software engineer. They both explore their new young adult life interacting with their colleagues and neighbors. The third season had quite a premiere leaving a few heartbreaks setting up for the show. Here we are taking a look at everything happening in the first episode of Good Trouble Season 3 while also breaking down what we can expect from the upcoming episode.
Recap: Good Trouble Season 3 Episode 1
Let’s take a look at Callie first and everything that went down with her. So, yes Jamie and Callie have officially broken up. Why? The episode teases that we have to wait further for episodes. The episode didn’t really showcase what Callie did which led to Jamie losing his job and officially breaking up with her. But yes, he will be still around his part is not finished yet. Also, Callie while chasing her dream to work at ACLU ended up doing a clerkship. But she is not interested in that part and wants to go for Judiciary and ends up with a job at Legal Aid. At the same place, she also finds a new mentor for her in the form of Constance Zimmer’s character.
With Mariana, things have got a little confusing lately. She was all thinking about the night she spent with Evan. On the other side, Raj texts Maraina and they make-up with each other. But they can’t deny the fact that both Mariana and Raj have feelings for someone else. The last season summed up that Raj started developing some spark towards Mariana’s roommate Isabella. In the end, Mariana takes the cue and confesses to Raj that they have to accept the fact that they have feelings for someone else. This left the couple splitting up the only path.
Mallika on the other hand is having a big case in her hand. Instead of telling Issac about it, she convinces him that it is nothing to worry about. Issac worries about DA and his relationship with the Black Lives Matter movement. Mallika is quite relaxing after the support from BLM until everything turns upside down. The case turns upside down when she is found playing flirtily with Dyonte leading to charges dropping from him. Mallika on the other hand gets cornered for an eventual arrest. On Davia and Dennis’s side, after lengthy distancing and rethinking the couple finally makes up. For them, it ends with a proposal and a kiss settling everything from the past.
