This article contains predictions for the Apple TV+ series The Essex Serpent season 1, episode 4.

An imminent love triangle starts to take shape in this Victorian gothic drama, as the flying serpent is spotted for a second time and the villagers start to panic. This visually stunning show has picked up once more with an intriguing third chapter and a highly dramatic end. Here’s what happened in episode three of The Essex Serpent:

  • Naomi’s father and two other fishermen are attacked by an unseen sea creature on their boat. It drags their netting and an individual into the dark waters, yet the crew is left unscathed.
  • Cora wakes up the following morning, after the carnage at the school, filled with regret and guilt. She contacts Luke in the hopes he’ll explain all the chaos with logic and science.
  • Will visits Cora and informs her that his daughter has become mute. Cora wishes to help and whilst the two are out walking, Will passes her his scarf in an intimate exchange.
  • Luke arrives that morning and the two head back to the school. Luke wishes to use hypnosis on the child, who hasn’t spoken since the tragic event. He even tries the technique out on Cora.
  • The fishermen and their wives blame Cora’s arrival for the sea beast’s attacks. Fear spreads throughout the neighborhood, along with news of the assault, and the town prepare for future attacks, although more netting is later destroyed.
  • Whilst under hypnosis, Jo (Will’s daughter) admits to casting a spell, which she believes has summoned the monster. She wakes from the hypnosis just in time for her father’s arrival. Jo’s speech returns, but Will is furious and attacks Luke anyway. Cora explains that Stella consented and the hypnosis has thankfully worked. The Londoners leave.
  • Martha tells Cora to apologize to Will, yet Cora believes she was in the right. She writes a private letter to the vicar instead and leaves it in an open window. Will appears moments later and asks about the note. Cora says she isn’t apologizing and the two argue. Will chases her outside, admitting he’s jealous of Luke. He grabs her by the scarf and the two embrace. Stella sees the interaction take place from afar.
