Welcome to Moordale as Sex Education Season 3 got even better

Date:

The Sex Education Season 3, released on 17th September on OTT Platform- Netflix, is bold, progressive and showcases emotions more than empathy. We are not mere viewers this time; we are the ones getting the therapy. 

If Season 1 and 2- a great hit, were about students and teenagers discovering their type of sexuality, Season 3 will give you a roller coaster ride through a sea of emotions.

As they go about raising their voices against an authoritative headmistress – Hope, who preached abstinence, experience adulthood and changes in personal lives as they learn to adjust to the ever-changing brutal world. 

This Netflix’s titled show doesn’t fail at stimulations, education and therapy. 

S3 plot, worth the hype?

It is an exception how Netflix’s Sex Education went through an evolution in the three seasons. The third season takes us back to Moordale high, which became famous as ‘Sex School’ in the UK; all credits to Otis and Maeve for the sex clinic in Season 1 and Chlamydia Outbreak in Season 2. 

But is there no Hope for Sex Education at Moordale? The chances are lonely after the new headmistress; Hope Haddon, is determined to overhaul the school’s image.

Hope believes in turning the school into a ‘scary place’ and make the students ready for the future in the real world, which is relentless and grim. 

The New Headmistress paints the wall with vulgar graphics, introduces uniforms, draws a line in the corridor for students to walk in a single file. She trains every possible method to shed off the ‘sex school’ title. 

While others suffer, Otis Milburn focuses on his casual relationship with Ruby while being into Maeve, for real. The sex clinic he did with Maeve was to be with her. While Maeve tackles her drug addict mother and seeks her forgiveness, she later kidnaps her younger sister, Elsie. 

Sex Education is unique, as it is revolutionary without the need of organizing the parade of Honour. Season 3 is more than Maeve’s and Otis’s on-off relationship, putting these two in the backlight and bringing other characters like Jackson, Eric and Adam, Ruby, Lily and Ola and many more under the spotlight to shine.

It discusses more critical issues like the survival of the LGBTQ Community, which was shown as much repressed on Eric’s Nigeria Trip. 

A new character named Cal, A rebel and non-binary student who supports other students, is overwhelming. 

Adam Groff, an ex-bully, is on the path of self-discovery as he decides to become better at academics. (Spoiler alert: Also participates in a competition with his dog and wins best debut performance award) 

Though he confessed his love to Eric, he still struggles to express his sexuality in public. 

Michael Groff suffers from a midlife crisis, while Jean and Jakob’s messy relationship gets messier as Jean becomes pregnant. It proves that not only teens but adults can also be imperfect and make too many mistakes. 

Not only their parents but the school’s new headmistress, who always has it all together, also deal with imperfection, as she is shown at her weakest moment trying to deal with personal demons and IVF. 

(Spoiler Alert: Maeve kissed Isaac but ended up being with Otis)

Review

The series touches upon multiple aspects without making it peachy and excellent. The show discusses sexuality, gender identification, pregnancy risks (ancient age), and midlife crisis.

The story is so flawless that it effortlessly jumps from one sequence to another, keeping its audience hooked and entertained. 

Justice is done to every possible character in the story so far. Each character has a background storyline and plays a significant role, and no end of the story is left loose and hanging. 

(Spoiler alert: Episode 7’s energy will make your heart beat faster and fill you with joy and energy)

“It might surprise you, but I don’t think everything comes back to sex,” Dr Milburne had said, which perfectly summarise the third season. In a way that despite every episode involving physical intimacy in one way or another, the freedom to be able to do that is what is more important.

Sex education adds to the teenage drama and set the bars even higher for others to meet. But season 3 ends with a Maeve-Otis ‘see you soon, which leaves its fans at cliff-edge, hinting to SEASON 4! 

The writers leave us nail-biting about what will happen to us and the show? To Jean and Jakob? To Maeve and Otis? Will it be a forced goodbye as they part ways while on the verge of new adventures, new beginnings, and futures beckoning. 

I hope that their education comes to their rescue and serves them well.

If I were to rate season 3 alone, I would give it a 4/5 and 4.5/5 to the series. At the same time, the overall ratings received by the heartfelt and hilarious Netflix gem is 4.5/5, which makes it a must-watch.
