The Outsider Miniseries began with a two-part premiere episode, which was followed by a more contemplative one. While the first two episodes showed the involvement of Terry in the murder, the recent episode titled “Dark Uncle” was all about the mystery goo. Yes, the turn of events in the episode will leave you baffled.
Anderson might be on administrative leave but the madness isn’t over, as a highly orthodox PI makes his entry. The two look for closure in the upcoming episode and its definitely going to be ominous. So here is a short recap and sneak peek into The Outsider Episode 4 titled “Que Viene El Coco”.
The Outsider Episode 3 “Dark Uncle” Written Update
Jack Hoskins is the new PI appointed in the murder case of Frankie Peterson. He heads to the barn where the clothes of the suspect, maybe, Terry were found. However, his one hour drive was made more pointless when he stops in between to harass some strippers at the Peach Crease. As a result, when he reaches the barn, it is almost night. He is all alone and annoyed as the other GBI officers have left. But it doesn’t stop him. He starts his search and as he flashes the light on the rear side of the building, the green Hoodie man appears.
Yes, he gets shot scared but as he recollects himself and the flashlight, the figure disappears. And in a few minutes, he is attacked repeatedly, as an unseen force injures his neck and pins him down. He still manages to return home but this encounter has instilled a lot of pain, which is worsening with time.
The Outsider Episode 3- Ralph Continues to Investigate
Even though Ralph is on a leave, he still continues to work on the case. He tries to establish a connection between the murder and Terry’s trip to Ohio. He watches the courtroom shooting again to see if he had missed out on anything important.
The day after, he meets Yunis Sablo to confirm the details collected by the GBI personnel from the barn. During their visit, they found that though the clothes of the suspect and what Terry was wearing was an exact match, there was one odd distinction. The fingerprints found on the unique buckle belt belonged to a person around 80 years of age, apart from being matched with Terry.
All this weirdness led to the calling of Alec Pelley and Howie Gold for investigation. Though the two refuse to take part, Ralph manages to get them convincing that it could help Terry get out of the case and find the real killer. And with this, Howie suggests to bring Holly Gibney, who he feels could be of some help.
The Outsider Episode 3- “Jessa Meets Ralph and Jeannie”
While Terry is convicted in the murder of a young boy, his family too is being harassed. His daughters Maya and Jessa are constantly being bullied at school. The same night, The Man who whispers to Jessa visits her again and tells her to meet Ralph. She asks her mom to call Anderson as she wants to talk to him. Jeannie accompanies Ralph to visit Glory and Jessa, along with Howie Gold. While Glory stresses that Jessa is just having a bad dream and talking to Ralph would help her realize this, the girl is adamant that it’s not.
Jessa informs Ralph that The Man wants him to stop the investigation, if not then something bad will happen. After some coaxing, Jessa is questioned by Jeannie and she reveals about her meetings with the invisible man, and how he always says to threaten Ralph.
