The Lost Symbol Episode 3 Review: Unveiling The Answers

The Lost Symbol Episode 3 continues the quest of Robert Langdon and Katherine Solomon to find Peter Solomon as they are constantly confronted with more secrets than answers. Based on Dan Brown’s bestselling book The Lost Symbol, this Peacock original keeps you equipped with knowledge as you hunt for answers in the clouds of suspense.

The series is developed by Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie. Each episode has a run time of about 44 minutes and stars Ashley Zukerman as the young Harvard Symbologist Robert Langdon and Valorie Curry as Katherine Solomon, Langdon’s female companion helping him solve the mystery that will save people from an impending disaster. The last two episodes were spent trying to figure out the capstone and what is the secret group “Leviathan” protecting. However, the third episode drops us hints and leads us to uncover the bigger mystery.

The Lost Symbol Episode 3: “Murmuration”

The third episode gives us more insight into the secret “Leviathan” group about which we have been hearing since the last episode. The secrets of the secret group are unfolded and it is seemingly unbelievable yet, acceptable how bent the members of the group have been in protecting those secrets. Even Robert and Katherine after finally cracking the cipher to the capstone, come across a self-destructing reel that serves as living proof of what secret powers the Leviathan group holds close to their hearts.

Meanwhile, Peter Solomon is still in the state of “The Araf”, unsound and surrounded by his worst nightmares. We are still not sure if the man is going to make it out alive or not. However, we do get to witness some moments the characters have shared with Zachery be it, Peter Solomon or Inoue Sato and how he might have ended up dead in the first place.

In The Lost Symbol episode 2, Mal’akh had warned Langdon to not continue his quest with Katherine on the toe and hinted towards consequences if he didn’t comply. During The Lost Symbol episode 3, when Robert shares with Katherine his concerns, she brushes them off. However, by the end of the episode, we do see that a price has been paid for their defiance, only reaffirming how cruel and certain Mal’akh is about his words.

It is important to mention how honest the series has been so far in regards to the book. It puts forward a genuine adaptation without tampering with the original premise which makes the show all the better with each passing episode. Dan Brown books are supposed to be slow-burning and filled with suspense and the series does just that. There is no rush to get to the end as much as there is a rush to let the audience explore the characters and understand the archaic mysteries that the story brings forward.

The Lost Symbol Episode 3: Final Verdict

The third chapter in The Lost Symbol directs us more towards the answers we have been looking for. It tries to incorporate history with myth and science. It also gives new light to certain characters, even though Peter Solomon’s character seems to be holding back and letting us down with some important information. Overall, it was a worthy watch like the last two episodes and hopefully, the series keeps going the same way.
