‘Lupin‘s’ Season 3 on Netflix revolves around a complex web of heists, retaliation, and deceit, and one of the most important plot points is what happens to the Black Pearl. The expert thief, Assane Diop (Omar Sy), cleverly manages this priceless relic, making sure it escapes the grasp of both the authorities and his enemies.
As the action reaches its peak and Jean-Luc Keller’s schemes come apart, Assane must take on the difficult task of defending the Black Pearl, an extremely valuable and sought-after object. In keeping with his sly disposition, Assane hides the Black Pearl behind a flower while the police capture Keller. The symbolism of concealing the treasure in something flimsy and fragile gives Assane’s theft an additional level of complexity.
Then, Assane gives the flower—which contains the Black Pearl—to a gullible woman, saying he purchased it for a date that never materialized. This calculated action capitalizes on the chaotic circumstances near the Arc de Triomphe, where visitors are being told to evacuate while police work to catch Keller.
Bruno, a buddy from Assane’s past, recognizes the woman with the flower, thereby completing the devious plot. Bruno takes advantage of the situation and walks up to her, asking for a flower to save the semblance of his planned date. The woman gives the bouquet and the Black Pearl over, not realizing the precious cargo concealed therein.
Given his history with Assane and the complexity of their bond, Bruno’s involvement in this operation lends poetic justice. According to the season, Bruno, who is shown in the last scene with a bag of cash, most likely sold the Black Pearl to the highest bidder on the illicit market.
The themes of deceit, resourcefulness, and the cat-and-mouse game that characterize Assane’s contacts with law enforcement and rivals become entwined with the fate of the Black Pearl. Assane’s skill as a skilled thief and his capacity to outwit even the most ardent pursuers are demonstrated by its successful retrieval from the hands of the authorities.
Essentially, the Black Pearl becomes a metaphor for the high-stakes society Assane lives in, one in which every theft is like a move in a game of chess and every artifact has both monetary and strategic significance. As ‘Lupin’ Season 3 comes to an end, fans are left feeling in awe of Assane’s genius and eager for the next exciting adventure as they follow the Black Pearl’s path from theft to hiding to eventual escape.
