The Sinner Season 3 Episode 3. There is no doubt that Jamie let his old college friend Nick die after a car crash on The Sinner. But it’s up to Detective Harry Ambrose to determine what Matt Bomer and Chris Messina’s characters were around in school which led to this death.
Following the next episode, there’s finally enough information to come up with some theories about The Sinner Season 3.
With the arrival of Jamie’s baby and Ambrose visiting Jamie and Nick’s old college professor, The Sinner has supplied some significant clues into Jamie’s philosophical mindset, which seems to be the secret to the full season.
Ambrose took a trip to Jamie and Nick’s college after he spotted the term”Übermensch” carved into Jamie’s dorm room furniture at an old photo.
Their previous philosophy professor explains that the idea of this Übermensch is the highest type of human, who struggles himself to”produce his morality.” In doing this, “You overcome anxiety, live at a greater level compared to the common man. Discover the truth of existence.”
Jamie is desperately trying to find meaning in life and Nick seemed to be the only person who understood (and invited ) the dangerous levels he would go to pursue it.
But what were those levels that are harmful? Here are a few theories on the insecure activities that these buds were up to in school.
They Killed Someone & Were Planning To Kill Again
Jamie’s school reporter told Ambrose Jamie came back to the dorm after hanging with Nick covered in blood and sand. Maybe someone had been killed by the pair and Jamie called up Nick to do it again ahead of his child’s birth.
They were headed to Sonya’s home and Jamie dug a grave on her property, so she was their intended victim.
Might have fascinated or infuriated them why they would want to kill her is a mystery, although her artwork focused on the vulnerability of guys.
Their urge to murder and the pursuit of their Übermensch could relate together since they would be given the god-like power of life and death by murdering someone and could certainly be the creation of their mortality.
Nick Believed Jamie Could Be The Übermensch
The Übermensch does exist instead and in Nietzsche’s work if something for humanity to pursue.
Nick seems to have been passionate about this exploration, but he obtained Jamie involved because he thought Jamie was capable of attaining this power of being than he was.
Perhaps that Nick seemed OK that Jamie enabled him to expire following the car crash instead of calling an ambulance. He could have seen it as a different act that allowed Jamie to become nearer to become his god.
With five episodes to go, The Sinner Season 3 will surely have more spins and more philosophical quandaries.
However, Ambrose is becoming closer to cracking the situation and understanding Jamie’s Übermensch complex 101.
