Within the penultimate episode, Seeing is Deceiving, magician Margo the Magnificent dies whereas performing a trick, and it’s as much as Hudson and Rex, and Dalton and Otto, to uncover the reality.
A fact that entails her twin, Pam, a disagreement, affairs, and a closed sarcophagus. It will have been a stable episode to finish the season on, however Hudson & Rex doesn’t actually do cliffhangers.
The dual storyline wasn’t in any respect delicate. From the twins within the strollers (like what first received Charlie desirous about the potential for Rex being a twin in All within the Litter), to Rex and his twin, Otto, the foreshadowing was much less sleight of hand and extra a bit too on the nostril. However a enjoyable twist nonetheless.
Amal: Nonetheless enjoying with doves, Talon?
Talon: Chunk me, Amal. This can be a stable routine.
Amal: That you simply stole from Darcy Oake. Don’t fear, I received’t inform.
It was good to see Otto up on his ft and never solely wholesome however coaching to be a service canine.
Hopefully season 4 will give us an replace on his progress. A season 4 that’s occurring, if you hadn’t heard.
So, will Sarah nonetheless be a part of the group in season 4? That’s the massive query we had been left with on the finish of Seeing is Deceiving after she obtained a job provide from London. Is Sarah leaving? Whereas I don’t have the reply to that, my intestine tells me she isn’t going wherever and can nonetheless be with the group subsequent season. What that job provide felt like was the present sowing the seeds for a season 4 the place Charlie acts on his emotions for Sarah, or no less than turns into conscious that he has emotions for her. What’s extra motivating than the potential for somebody leaving and lacking your probability? And proper now, to maneuver this relationship ahead, it wants some motivation.
Regardless of the finale, The Artwork of the Steal, appearing just like the job provide by no means occurred, it could be meaningless for this to haven’t any penalties, for it to be nothing however an affordable emotional shot that’s by no means talked about once more. This reviewer is giving them the good thing about the doubt.
Hudson & Rex is probably not the form of present that sometimes has occasions observe characters into following episodes, nevertheless it does have a couple of cases the place a seed sown in a single episode has sprouted in one other. Seeing as this episode was written by the showrunner himself, it is likely to be the catalyst for actual motion in the direction of a season 4 Sarah/Charlie growth. Solely time – and season 4 – will inform.
And that scene itself, the place Sarah first obtained the provide, is rather a lot to unpack. Charlie’s little noise of disagreement when Sarah calls the job a protracted shot is cute.
Sarah’s face is just not the face of somebody prepared to leap on the probability. She’s conflicted. Happy to be short-listed, but in addition blissful on the SJPD.
Rex coming again to take a look at Sarah once more is a pleasant contact. The present makes us imagine Rex understands each phrase being spoken, each state of affairs, and right here is not any totally different. He stops and appears at Sarah one final time, whining, as a result of he has picked up on the strain and the prospect she might go away. Believing Rex understands the state of affairs provides that little further emotion that Charlie isn’t fairly prepared to indicate.
Later, whereas Jesse reveals off a trick he’s been engaged on, Sarah walks in, distracted by her cellphone. Charlie admits he is aware of about her job provide from having seen it on her laptop.
He manages to be blissful and inspiring. As a result of he’s each. Charlie is an effective buddy.
And Sarah’s thoughts isn’t made up but. If the viewers hoped for a solution about Sarah’s determination now, they’ll be as disillusioned as Charlie. “Goals do evolve,” Sarah tells Charlie, earlier than she chooses to observe the magic somewhat than reply his query abut what she plans to do. She loves working for the SJPD, however she has rather a lot to consider. This hesitation tells Charlie she’s truly contemplating it, and the best way his face falls tells us that whereas Charlie is likely to be blissful for her, he’s simply realized he might lose her.
Ought to this episode have been the season finale? It certain felt prefer it. The finale’s lack of decision on the job provide, that it didn’t even point out it, suggests it was initially meant to air previous to Seeing is Deceiving.

Within the finale, The Artwork of the Steal, Charlie proves as soon as once more to have absolutely the worst luck by getting caught up in a financial institution theft. Remind me to by no means go wherever with Charlie.
Jesse will get his ‘missed an necessary name’ scene once more however sees the message prior to he did in Tunnel Imaginative and prescient (which remains to be an endlessly irritating scene to observe).
The busker who claims to have witnessed the suspect run off seems to be the suspect himself, however he’s enjoyable to observe whereas pretending to be an harmless, flakey bystander.
He’s Mark Sanford, a part of one of many richest households in St John’s and he’s been appearing out.
“Consuming. Medicine. Drums,” his father laments.
Oh God, not drums. He’s doomed.
We discover out he has been robbing the banks to try to discover adoption papers saved in his father’s security deposit field, to get solutions to the reality his father (and mom) have saved from him.
And Annie/Anastasia who has been working with him claims to have been standing by a buddy, however she was simply chasing the subsequent adrenalin excessive.
We get an replace on how Camilla is doing. She’s making movies on-line – and by accident setting her dorm on fireplace. She’s positively been higher. Joe does chuckle a bit as he tells the story, so I suppose sufficient time has handed that he can see the humorous facet of it.
The group have two BBQ evenings this episode. Is seeing everybody collectively at Charlie’s one among my favourite issues? Sure. Seeing it twice in a single episode was a deal with. Even when that first try was a little bit of a fail. Jesse didn’t make the potato salad, Sarah didn’t get the cheese (however did deliver flowers! And croutons?), Joe grabbed a field of donuts for dessert, and Charlie? His burgers had been takeout. These individuals have the worst work/life stability ever. They affirm this by discussing the case after dinner. Large sigh. Guys. Large. Sigh.
The second dinner goes a bit higher (as a result of they employed a caterer? Wow okay). And with out the case to unravel afterwards I can solely hope different matters had been mentioned for a change.
Jesse realized an necessary lesson this episode: Don’t disparage the cheese board.
Cheese is severe enterprise. Sarah gives you the “I’ll kill you lifeless” eyes in case you converse negatively concerning the significance of making the proper cheese board.
David Mason returned for his third look. Employed by Mark to assist discover his organic father. That’s three appearances in three seasons. Does this imply we’ll get to see him once more in season 4? I hope so.
Thanks, Hudson & Rex, for a enjoyable, thought-provoking, at instances emotional, however at all times pleasurable season three.
Congratulations on the season 4 renewal. Everybody do the blissful cheese dance with Sarah.
