Since the very beginning of the third season, Cousineau has been planning to get revenge on Barry for killing his girl. But the plan turned on him as Barry was a skilled killer. Still, instead of punishing Cousineau, Barry thought of earning forgiveness.

So Barry went out there hoping to find an acting gig for himself as well as for Cousineau. Believing this will make up for the killing of Janice. Cousineau tried escaping from Barry. This saw Barry threatening to kill his son and grandson. Cousineau had no choice but to take what Barry had to offer, and here is what went down.

Meanwhile, Barry and Cousineau connect with each other right before their shoot. The talk takes them back to Barry’s monologue. Cousineau comes to realize that putting Barry and Janice in one room is what led to her death. Fuches reconnects with Barry to apologize and expects a similar one from him.

During the shoot of the Barry and Cousineau scene, Barry plays it cool with his role, but it somewhere parallels the situation between him and Cousineau. Soon Cousineau loses it and slaps Barry asking him to stay away from his family before walking out.

Amidst all of this, much like Hank, even Cristobal tries to convince Fernando that they should go back as they couldn’t find anything on Chechens. Fernando couldn’t help but agree. Meanwhile, Katie, on her side, when questioned about Sally’s healthy relationship, finds herself confused. She feels like she is lying about all of this after watching Barry scream at Sally in the last episode.

Barry Season 3 Episode 3 Review

Barry Season 3 Episode 3 works its storylines by drawing parallels within them. For starters, the working relationship between Barry and Cousineau kind of aligns itself with the working relationship between Katie and Sally. Barry makes Cousineau do things. Much like that, Katie is helpless as she has to lie her way out if she wants to survive in this industry.

Similarly, we felt the same when it comes to the conversation between Barry and Fuches. We felt like Barry was more or less acting like Fuches when it came to working with Cousineau.

Our Thoughts On Barry Season 3 Episode 3

Amidst all of this, Cousineau, as in Henry Wrinkler’s performance, is something worth looking at. The way he was so clueless with the gig and had to take orders for Barry was brilliant acting. We can feel how much he hates Barry receiving the praise after what he did to Janice, and it all comes out during their acting scene.

Apart from all of this, we also kind of saw how coming close to their dreams has changed some of the people. For example, Sally was a completely different person when she started out. But now, as she is becoming popular, she needs to take care of a few things.

Sally can’t let the world know how her relationship with Barry is not great as it may seem because it may affect the show, which is aimed at abusive relationships. This also brought pressure on her co-star Katie who clearly states that she feels uncomfortable around Barry.
