Warrior Season 3 Episode 10 Recap
Ah Sahm (Koji), the talented martial artist, is faced with a critical choice at the start of the episode. Ah Sahm, who had traveled from China to San Francisco in quest of his sister, got caught up in the Tong Wars in the late 1870s. As hostilities intensify, Ah Sahm is forced to decide between his strong loyalty to his sister Mai Ling (Dianne Doan) and his brothers in the Hop Wei.
As Mai Ling meets a wealthy socialite named Eliza Pendleton (Jazzara Jaslyn), her revenge takes an unexpected turn. Despite a history of abuse and torture, Mai Ling chooses not to murder Eliza. Instead, she gives her a knife so that she will have to confront her husband’s adultery and seek future retribution.
Ah Toy’s conflict with Douglas is a further intriguing plot point. Strickland, who was formerly a formidable character, is victimized by Nellie and Ah Toy’s revenge scheme. Bill and Dylan Leary (Dean Jagger) show up as Strickland’s life is ending, setting the scene for a terrifying meeting. Bill and Leary dispose of Strickland’s body while being aware that their actions could have repercussions when Nellie and Ah Toy (Olivia Cheng) flee.
While sharing what appears to be a routine moment, Walter Franklin Buckley (Langley Kirkwood), the Deputy Mayor, and Catherine Archer (Dominique Maher) are unaware that their friendship is soured by secrets. The fact that Buckley is unaware of Catherine’s relationship with his political staffer Stewart Gumm (Sean-Marco Vorster) complicates their relationship.
Bill is persuaded to go along with the Secret Service’s plan despite his hesitation by Edmund Moseley (Nick Cordileone) and Richard Henry Lee (Tom Weston-Jones). Chinatown’s power structures are changing as Buckley’s influence battles with the government’s desire for justice. Ah Sahm is used as a pawn in the complex conflict between Hop Wei, the Barbary Coast [run by Mexican businesswoman Rosalita Vega (Maria-Elena Laas )] drug trafficking organization, and the authorities.
Ah Sahm defeats the leader of the Barbary Coast after a terrifying skirmish that follows. Ah Sahm is knocked unconscious in the commotion but is later awakened by Hong and brought back to the Hop Wei headquarters.
The fates of the characters converge as the program progresses. Lee considers re-joining the police force, Moseley reclaims the plates, and the Long Zii members realign themselves with Li Yong, all of which point to a shifting balance of power within the Tong.
Ah Sahm’s final decision serves as the dramatic high point. Ah Sahm puts family connections above brotherhood after being forced to choose between his affection for his sister and his allegiance to his brothers. In the end, blood wins, and Ah Sahm’s choice permanently changes the look of Chinatown. He stops others who want to hurt Mai Ling, including Hong and Young Jun, in a moving scene.
Characters struggle with the effects of their choices throughout the conclusion, which is influenced by Ah Sahm’s decision. Together, Mai Ling and Ah Sahm face overwhelming odds while being united by a fresh understanding. After being assaulted by Zing and suffering serious injuries, Wang Chao’s fate takes a sad turn. Chao (Hoon Lee )’s future is in jeopardy because his odds of living are minimal and his survival is uncertain.
In the mid-credits sequence, the Long Zii members join themselves with Li Yong, heralding a change within the Tong and providing a tantalizing glimpse into a shifting power dynamic. Li Yong’s leadership assumes center stage as the coats of allegiance change, ushering in a brand-new era of intrigue and struggle.
