The emotional rubble left by season two, of ABC’s sultry series Mistresses, left many viewers shocked by the chaos of its passionately pitched plot lines. The third season has brought new faces, new love interests, and a fresh perspective, through which fans can assess the damage created from the previous season. Season two concluded with a quizzical platform to launch each character into the third.
Savi abruptly caught Josslyn, her sister, sleeping with her ex-husband Harry on a beach. The beach just so happened to be the location for Josslyn’s wedding. Simmering in a slicing betrayal, Savi disappeared. Josslyn was left to process her treachery, her questionable feelings for her once brother-in-law, and her fizzled devotion to her fiancée, alone. April’s saga with her dead and cheating ex-husband concluded. Her cheating, not dead, but broke, ex-husband eventually ended up dying. Through this process she gained a boyfriend, Daniel, who turned out to be a cop, investigating her ex-husband’s death validity. April was left sorrowfully exhausted by the men surrounding her whom, only communicated through the disguise of extreme pretense and dishonesty. Karen was her usual; erratic occupation, rider of the inappropriate couple carousel, and prime-time professional prostitute, self.
The show took an intriguing turn when it kicked off the third season. Savi’s disappearance became transfixed as a cemented and everlasting, gone. The removal of a main character did not slow down this broadcast’s fast paced story lines. In a matter of a few episodes; April has a new love interest and, her ex-husband child is living with her as well as his uncle Mark. Josslyn‘s smothering kind of love dissolved any flare in her romance with Harry. Karen is cringingly steeped into a crossed paramour pool of polyamory. She’s dating a married couple. Yes, Karen is her usual self. A new shimmering wave, in the form of Calista, a highly successful fashion designer, has provided a zesty and atypical personality to the landscape of the show. She’s tough and no-nonsense. However, her marital woes, that were bothersome initially, have turned grievously and fatally worse.
The third season has maintained the show’s exhilarating and soap opera styled decorum. The show continues to highlight the compelling and complex personalities within all real women. The amusing twist is that the broadcast continues to jovially place these women in the craziest and most exciting circumstances that romantic, fantasy television can drum up. The relationships are unpredictable, the drama is intoxicating, and the cast is scandalous. The viewers are anxious to know how the webs of disarray will be untangled in each character’s life. Assuredly, with plots this deliciously delightful, they’ll come back weekly to find that answer.
