Who Killed Sara? season 3, episode 3 recap

Episode 3 opens up with Alex looking at the young girl who looks exactly like Sara, but when she was younger. She has files with her from the Medusa Project. Flashbacks show Nicandro’s father celebrating the young girl’s birthday at the strange hospital; he tells her it’s her last day in the facility and that she’s a miracle. In the present, the young girl tells Alex she doesn’t know anyone called Sara. Alex promises to take care of her, but he wants her story. When Rodolfo meets the girl, he’s amazed by how much she looks like Sara.

In a flashback, Sara walks in on her surprise birthday with her friends — she’s 17 now. However, she walks away and goes into her room. Her mother catches her scrambling around her room. It then flits to the strange hospital, and the medical staff tells her mother about treatment to treat her psychotic symptoms. Sara goes through a range of tests. The mother is told Sara has severe paranoid schizophrenia. The mother is distraught, but it’s clear Sara is part of a wider project of Nicandro’s plans for Project Medusa.

Alex and Elisa are troubled over the girl’s origin and suspect she is Sara’s daughter. They know Sara is the only one who can get them the answers they need. Meanwhile, Nicandro tells his father that Lucia (the young girl with Alex and Elisa) has escaped. Nicandro’s father accuses Daniela of helping Lucia escape. Daniela tells him she doesn’t want him to do to Lucia what he did to Sara.

Cesar turns up at Alex’s house, furious that his bank account was emptied. Alex asks Cesar if he killed Dr. Alanis. Cesar claims this is nothing to with him but just wants his money back. Alex and Cesar continue arguing, but then Lucia appears. Alex reveals she is Sara’s daughter, which means she is Cesar’s daughter. They then discuss the strange hospital, but Cesar states he never got involved, but Mariana did. But before they can continue the discussion, the house is sprayed with bullets. It’s Nicandro and his men.

The ending

Alex and Lucia escape in a car, but they are chased down. As they drive away, Alex learns of the young girl’s name — the same name as his mother. They continue to evade their attackers, which leads to a crash. Alex asks an injured Nicandro where Sara is. He tells him she’s where she wants to be. But before they can continue the situation, Alex is shot, and Lucia is kidnapped.

Episode 3 drags the story on, but it’s getting a little boring.

Additional points

  • Chema is visited by Alma, and he tells her he confessed to a crime he didn’t commit out of love. He promises to pay her money once he has it.
