Dark Winds Episode 3’s Ending
The third episode of ‘Dark Winds’ gives the audience a lot of information. It offers us a better understanding of how criminals operate. They have a number of pawns in the game, which may explain why they are suspicious of one other. When the cops find out about the cactus artwork, Wanda bears the weight of being labeled a rat. Benjamin is skeptical about her and decides to remain on the safe side. Another piece of evidence enters the picture at this point. From the start, Leaphorn and Manuelito had suspicions about Sally’s family, particularly her mother, Ada. When we observe her casting a spell on Wanda with the identical hair clip that Benjamin had removed from her, our suspicions are confirmed. We show Wanda being attacked by a dangerous spider and dying after Ada buries the clip. Given Leaphorn and Lester’s chat about avoiding being bitten by a black widow, this could just be a coincidence. It suggests that anyone could be bitten by a dangerous spider, as it is a regular talking point. The timing of Wanda being bitten and Ada casting a spell on her, on the other hand, is fascinating. ‘
Dark Winds’ has relished in its mystical components while keeping them at a safe distance from the audience, leaving them to question if any of it is genuine or not. The show walks a delicate line when it comes to topics that might usually be dismissed as superstition. Chee’s history cleverly addresses the subject of being labeled a witch. He tells Bernadette that he and his mother were expelled from town after rumors circulated that she was a witch. This discussion provides a sense of balance to the term “witch,” as we see someone being accused of being one and another acting like one. Again, the spectator is left wondering whether or not the conflicting viewpoint is a real thing in the show. Leaphorn, suspicious of Ada, advises Emma to stick close to Sally and learn whatever she can from her. Sally provides Emma a name: Frank Nakai, and Emma’s efforts pay off. The arrival of Father Benjamin, who comes as the Kinaalda to thank Leaphorn for burying his uncle, prompts this revelation. Benjamin is also acquainted with Sally, however, the nature of their relationship is unknown.
It’s possible that Sally observed Benjamin with her mother because we know Ada and Benjamin work together. However, based on her reaction to seeing him, there is clearly something more going on here. While the case seemed to be becoming more convoluted by the day, one thing does turn out to be correct. Raymond finally digs something out of the sea after a long time in it. He discovers a sack with a helmet inside, proving that the helicopter is indeed at the bottom of the lake. In a similar manner, Leaphorn learns of Tso’s letter to Father Benjamin, which was addressed to him from Italy. Tso, on the other hand, never posted anything, so what drew Benjamin all the way from Florence, Italy to Navajo Nation, Utah? The program spends a long time on this, allowing the riddle to be solved in subsequent episodes.
