Previously, on Jamestown: Alice Sharrow departs Jamestown with her son when she realizes it’s unlikely Silas will ever return from his new life with the natives. Jocelyn’s secret partnership with Farlow is exposed, and the magistrate literally gets beheaded for his trouble, as Yeardley brands him a traitor and blackmails Joss into helping him (illicitly, naturally) acquire more land for himself. The governor's also pretty eager to kick up a war with the local native tribe, although he’s having less success on that front once the Sharrows realize his promise to pardon Silas is a lie. Oh, and despite her farm burning down last season, Jocelyn has somehow become a successful landowner with a thriving crop in her own right, and as a result she’s basically rejected the romantic advances of all the men who were chasing her back in Season 2. Need more details? Our recap of the Season 3 premiere is here.

For the first time on this series, Jamestown’s story is largely focused on the next generation. Which is admittedly a bit strange, given that Jamestown likes to gloss over the fact of how many people regularly died in the colony even well into its more prosperous years

Previously on Jamestown: There’s honestly too much to fit here, so go skim the Season 2 recaps if you need a refresher on where we left things after last season. Fair warning: A whole lot of crazy happens.

In case anyone was worried that Jamestown would take its foot off the proverbial gas in its third and final season – don’t be. The period drama remains as bonkers as it’s ever been as Season 3 kicks off, offering up an episode that’s got everything from the departure of a major character to mystical visions to an actual beheading.
