Who Killed Sara? may have finally reached the truth regarding Sara, but it does so with a strained story trying to make a larger but not needed conspiracy.
This review of Netflix’s Who Killed Sara? season 3 does not contain spoilers.
I was surprised, like most viewers, when Who Killed Sara? got a second season. But a third? That felt like a massive stretch. The title is wildly ironic because we spend most of the time not knowing who killed Sara, while the series interweaves a million other subplots to scramble our brains. At the end of season 2, we were left with two potential killers, but season 3 is legitimate whiplash. It turns into a conspiracy-filled thriller, rather than a murder mystery, and I am confused about why.
And sure, there’s nothing wrong with a story expanding to new heights, but Who Killed Sara? season 3 writes itself into a bizarre corner. It turns into a story regarding a mad scientist trying to “change the world,” who was pulling the strings all along. Dodgy facilities are introduced, and the lead characters try to balance the story with the new plot points providing a curve ball.
It just doesn’t work. The series was compelling before because we were getting closer to Sara’s killer. The angle in season 3 takes away the magic and sensationalism of the series. It takes away the unnecessary, but entertaining drama, and replaces it with an ultimate villain that doesn’t fit into the overall story. It’s massively disappointing.
We should be grateful that it is over. This story should have had two seasons maximum, and this season is maybe “proof in the pudding” that concepts can be stretched too thin, and ruin the overall story.
