Dark is far and away, the most complex sci-fi show on Netflix. With twists throughout, most involving mind-bending time-traveling hijinks, its impossible to look away and much harder to understand. But it all comes to an end in 10 days, when our real-life timeline captures up with where the series left in Season 2: the apocalypse, beginning June 27, 2020.
Lucky for us, a new leak for Dark Season 3 episode titles could drop some (hazy) light on this notorious unpredictable show’s final season.
TVTime has leaked the names for Season 3 of Dark, and while they are still unconfirmed, they do sound similar to another episode names. The eight titles -“Deja-vu,” The Survivors,” Adam and Eve,” The Origin,” Life and Death,” Light and Darkness,” In Between,” and”Paradise” – aren’t much to go by when it comes to plot, but here are a few early theories which line up with this latest leak.
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 1: “DEJA-VU”
This one is the most straightforward. In the conclusion of Season two, Adam kills, we saw Martha, who to save Jonas, but that wasn’t the Martha he watched die: that was a Martha in another world. The season premiere will likely establish the alternative”mirror” world, a reveal that has been foreshadowed from the beginning with Dark’s mirror-imaged opening names.
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 2: “THE SURVIVORS”
We knew from the experiences in the future of Jonas that this was far from the end, although, at the end of Season 2, we watched the apocalypse happen. This episode badass matriarch Elizabeth that is post-apocalyptic and will cover those who were able to live through the events of June 27, centering around everyone’s favorite lipstick thief.
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 3: “ADAM AND EVE”
Adam is a well-known personality, a time-travel veteran, also Jonas self. However, Claudia tells Jonas she’s”seen a planet without” him, implying he doesn’t show up in the mirror universe, and consequently, neither does Adam. In that instance, who is the protagonist of the planet, as Jonas is in this? It appears to be Martha, as she wears Jonas’s yellowish coat at the trailer. This means, instead of Adam, Martha has her future-self counterpart, therefore, Eve. A painting of Adam and Eve is also seen in the trailer.
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 4: “THE ORIGIN”
In a sense, this incident may be flashback – in a show full of flashbacks and flash-forwards. That is Dark, so an episode set in the past could reveal the roots of Sic Mundus, the time loops, and perhaps even the mirror planet if we are lucky. This name is vague. However, the guarantee of background info is enticing. Could those three guys together with the cleft lip have something to do with this creation?
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 5: “LIFE AND DEATH”
This one is the vaguest. In the dark, most situations are death or life, so there’s no actual storyline that sticks out. The best guess is most likely a character like Jonas had to with his father in Season 2, coming to terms with inescapable death.
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 6: “LIGHT AND DARKNESS”
This name is exciting simply because the title Dark has also loomed large as a metaphor – the dark caves, Jonas’s mild world – but does not have much real significance beyond only “dark matter.” This episode stoke tensions between characters at the build-up to the series finale, and possibly will live on that imagery.
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 7: “IN BETWEEN”
Having a show as complex as this, there is sure to be a plot hole tidy up, and also, this incident sounds like Dark’s effort to do precisely that. What’s up with the early life of Charlotte? What is the deal with all Egon? Exactly why does Wöller possess an eyepatch? This 1 episode is enough to answer those burning questions. There’s also the problem of the figures’ selves: would we see that a version Jonas between Jonas along with his other people?
DARK SEASON 3 EPISODE 8: “PARADISE”
Dark’s endgame is by no way easy, but with a title like that, there is an opportunity at least it may be joyful. With both worlds plunged into post-apocalyptic hellscapes, the most likely alternative for this titular paradise would be another world where those from both worlds can live in harmony (or, whoever conveys this gruesome series ) and, ideally, the portals could be closed once and for all.
THE INVERSE ANALYSIS – Expect more of the same time travel loops and paradoxes which produce your brain hurt, but using an ever-increasing flow of peril and finality. Gone are the days when Dark was a straightforward wormhole story with fun eighties costumes. This time, they must save the world. Then, they have to save the world, then from consolidating 18, keep the realms of a task for its quantity of egos and future selves involved in this brightly convoluted series.
DARK SEASON 3 HITS NETFLIX ON JUNE 27.
