The Durrells season 3 finale on ITV Sunday night was very much about romance — albeit in a wide array of different forms.
When it comes to Leslie, he was ready and willing to call Daphne his fiancée, and he went so far as to even make an engagement ring out of wood for her! Unfortunately, there was still another surprise — it just so turned out that he was not the father of her child! She wanted him to be, but unfortunately, that was not the case. As a result of her lie he had to figure out whether or not he was still wanted to be with her.
Meanwhile, Larry in this episode determined that he had quite the crush on a young contortionist, someone who was in town as a part of a traveling circus. What was the problem here? It’s really quite simple: Nobody was altogether interested in attending. The Durrells found themselves in a position where they served as the marketing department for the circus and convinced people to come out for it. This also included Margo taking on the position of magician.
Finally, let’s get to one more romance: Louisa and Spiros. After spending some time bonding this season, the two finally (almost) kissed while at the circus. Whoever thought the circus would be such a romantic place?
Even with Margo, she had a small romantic story of her own with Zoltan … who unfortunately was leaving. He gave her a parting gift in the form of a house, and in turn, she gave him underwear.
The aftermath to some of these stories
After the showcase at the circus Daphne paid Leslie a visit and made it clear that the baby’s father paid her a visit overnight. She told him that he was going to stay and that Leslie was “free.” He regretted feeling as much animosity as he did towards wanting a family, since he didn’t know precisely what he wanted until it was gone.
Now, we turn to the sad news — Louisa couldn’t get what she wanted with Spiros. His wife returned and with that, she went back to being Mrs. Durrells. We want to see the two of them happy, but we also don’t want to see her get jerked around so much. Leading out of season 3, we feel for Louisa’s heart.
In the closing minutes, there were many new arrivals in Corfu — English men and women who came to Corfu after hearing some of Larry’s stories. The family may have a new business on the horizon: Paying for guests.
This episode was fun and romantic at times, but it was a rather sad ending to the entire saga of The Durrells season 3. Louisa called this a “bad day for love” in the family and she certainly wasn’t kidding. We now have to wait and see what the future holds for this show, a personal favorite that we hope to see stick around for a rather long time still.
