The Righteous Gemstones Season 3 Episode 8 Recap
The siblings Gemstone are the center of this episode of “The Righteous Gemstones,” which chronicles what happens to them after they are rescued. The siblings are brought to the hospital, where their family members come to see them. But they hold their father, Eli Gemstone, responsible for their ordeal because they believe he should have done more to protect them. Eli had planned to win over a man named Peter by appealing to his softer side, but he now sees that Peter’s time behind bars has had a profound effect on him.
The Gemstone siblings are profoundly changed by their near-death experiences. They begin to appreciate one another and make amends. BJ and Judy’s (Edi Patterson)‘s friendship is repaired, and Keefe lets go of his anger toward Kelvin. As for his loved ones, Jesse expresses regret and says he’s sorry. At Sunday lunch, the group discusses what to do about Eli and his behavior.
Jesse, meantime, goes shopping for his kids and admits to himself that he behaved poorly when Amber informed him she wanted to follow her passions. Others, such as Gideon, who has become close to his grandfather, have a more positive impression of Eli. The ordeal has altered the sibling relationship, and now the siblings are working together—albeit against Eli.
Kelvin Gemstone (Adam DeVine), whose sexuality has been questioned throughout the series, is also examined in this episode. Kelvin’s feelings for Keefe become more obvious, and he even surprises his siblings by kissing him on stage during a performance. Peter, armed with explosives, is en route to the Gemstone Salvation Center, unbeknownst to them.
The fallout from the hostage scenario involving Peter’s militia is also depicted in this episode. Peter’s position as leader of the militia is extremely tenuous after they lost the captives and the ransom money. Peter has no choice but to uproot the camp from the rundown property because Jesse and the others are aware of its location. The rising discontent among Peter’s followers abruptly expresses cohesively when the group finally arrives under a bridge and Peter says that this is it, and Peter is cast out. He then calls the police to report the location of the militia, and he and Chuck leave in a van filled with ammonium nitrate. When Peter informs Chuck they are going to church, this becomes quite clear. The suggestion here is that Peter intends to use the explosives he has stockpiled to blow up the church.
