The Ending Of Dead To Me Season 3 Explained


Season 3 introduces Garret Dillahunt as FBI agent Glen Moranis, an apparently dogged and brilliant investigator who takes over the Steve Wood murder case after Steve’s body is found buried in a national park (where Jen and Judy buried him in Season 2). For the most part, he lingers in the background, the other shoe waiting to drop. When Jen thinks he took one of her coffee mugs in order to match her DNA to some that was found on Steve’s body, her first troubling instinct is to kill him by spiking a batch of scones with pain pills. That moment is a false alarm, but in Episode 8, when it turns out that he did get her DNA from a thrown-away water bottle, Jen shows up at his hotel room with a batch of freshly made scones. By the end of the next episode, he’s dead.

Coincidence? In Episode 10, we hear that the FBI has pinned both Steve and Moranis’ death on the Greek mafia, whom we saw lingering around the hotel after Jen left, and from whom Steve had stolen millions of dollars. It certainly seems like Jen committed premeditated murder — her first, as her killing Steve was in self-defense — but it’s not an issue that the show dwells on in its final moments. “At the end of the day this isn’t really, in its heart of hearts, a show about crime and punishment,” Feldman told Vulture after the season premiered. “It’s really a show about grief and friendship, so that always informs the storytelling.”
