Apple TV+ may not have as many viewers as Netflix or Disney+, but recently it has produced some quality content. Premiered in 2019, the dystopian sci-fi series, SEE reaches its conclusion in the third and final season whose first episode premiered on August 26.
The third season begins months after the ending of Season 2 as Trivantians and Ganite are still at war. Wren seems to be leading the Trivantian army after the death of Edo Voss, which appears to be losing, but things take an unexpected turn. Edo Voss's friend and the Trivantian scientist Torrmada changes the game with a weapon that was forgotten by the people. He destroys Ganite's army with heavy explosives (bombs), made with the help of Jerlamarel's children. Season 3 is about how these explosives are a danger to humankind and how Baba Voss is going to face the threat of Torrmada.
Season 3 is set almost a year since Baba Voss defeated his nemesis brother Edo and bid farewell to his family to live remotely in the forest. But when a Trivantian scientist develops a new and devastating form of sighted weaponry that threatens the future of humanity, Baba returns to Paya to protect his tribe once more. Tragedy seems to follow Baba Voss wherever he goes, and after the tragic death of a beloved character, he decides to return to his family in Paya, but it complicates the matter that Queen Maghra is dealing with.
Without any doubt, Jason Momoa is the star of the show, and in Season 3, he seems to occupy more screen time than in the previous seasons and any other characters. Baba Voss overshadows every other character in the final season, and it is basically about his redemption.
Queen Kane's journey in Season 3 begins with her giving birth to Kofun's child. Although she is a prisoner in Paya waiting for her death sentence, her sister Maghra is not able to decide on her life. Kane's journey is full of twists and turns just like the previous seasons. She remains the most twisted character and surprises till the very end. Sylvia Hoeks has nailed this character, and I don't see anyone else outperforming this role.
There isn't enough change in the characters of Kofun and Haniwa, they are basically the same as the previous season. Kofun is still making questionable decisions, which ultimately puts everyone in danger. Haniwa is the most mature of the two, but her emotions cause her to make reckless actions.
In terms of story and visuals, Season 3 doesn't disappoint at all. The background music, combined with the stunning visuals, makes it impossible to look away from the screen. However, unlike previous seasons, Season 3 is mostly centered in Paya and does not venture far outside it.
There are a few deaths and tragedies, but Season 3 plays it safer than the previous season, which took a lot of risks. The final battle doesn't make sense after a point as it seems forced and unnecessary, and you might think the same and understand why I am saying so. But overall, the final episode is not bad or disappointing.
Ultimately, it reaches a satisfying conclusion, yet it forgets to tie some loose ends. In other words, the ending is open and leaves the possibility of returning in the future.
Final Score: [9/10]
Note: All eight episodes of the third season are screened for this review
