At the heart of The Durrells season 3 episode 7 was a story all about ethics, one that revolved heavily around seeing the arrest of Sven. Due to new mandates that were put out there by the government homosexual men and women were being rounding up; as a result of this, at the end of the episode we ultimately saw the character of Sven suffering in a rather-bad way. He was locked up and while Leslie hated going through with the act, that was his job. He loved the job but in the aftermath of this arrest, there were plenty of other people in Corfu who were not altogether thrilled with him.
It didn’t seem as though there was going to be an easy way to get poor Sven out of this situation — yet, this is here Louisa came into play! She went to the station and pretended to be an ex-lover of his. After she went into great detail on the relationship (while hitting on the officer in the process), Sven found himself released.
Of course, the ultimate irony here is that there is someone else in Corfu who Louisa has some feelings for, as you might be rather aware of at the moment. We’re talking here, to be specific, about Spiros. It’s pretty darn clear at the moment that she is harboring some feelings for him in the wake of his wife leading him, but for now she has to put some of those feelings to the side in an effort to just help him recover from what he is currently dealing with. She’s got a good understanding at the moment of what matters the most and that’s his recovery.
Unfortunately, Leslie also ended up having to sacrifice his own job in the process in order to protect his family further. He was depressed about the thought of losing that job and with that, he is now facing a fairly uncertain future.
In the closing minutes tonight Louisa did start to see Spiros come around — isn’t that exciting? If nothing else, it sets a great foundation for what’s coming in the finale.
Overall, The Durrells season 3 episode 7 ended up being a humorous hour of TV at times, but we think that it will be remembered more for some of the social issues that were at the center of the story. It was powerful in some ways and important at others.
Probably the strangest story of all, though, was this: Apparently, The Durrells is in the midst of a war with vegetarians. Who would’ve ever figured that this is where we would be going with the Gerry storyline? It’s strange but yet, here we are.
