The Mysterious Benedict Society Episode 3 Recap contains spoilers and the episode starts where episode 2 ended. Mr Curtain welcomes these four new students and interacts with everyone in the class. After the lecture, in their hostel room, the four orphans discuss how Curtain resembles Benedict. They assume that they must be identical twins. Through Morse Code, the kids send this message to Mr Benedict and his associates who reside far away from The Institute.
After deciphering the message, Mr Benedict understands that his twin brother is the man behind The Emergency. When his associates question him for hiding such a big truth, he tells them that his twin’s real name is Nathaniel, and they got separated during childhood. Mr Benedict loses his mind and shares how he and his brother didn’t get along well.
At The Institute, the kids decide to perform well to become the Messenger and be close to Mr Curtain. Reynie and Sticky are doing well, but Kate and Constance are lagging. Whoever performs poorly at the Institute is barged off on a ferry, and no one knows what happens to them. Reynie spots Mr Bloom from his orphanage sweeping the garden. When he talks to the man, he doesn’t remember Reynie and denies that his name is Mr Bloom.
That’s when the kids assume another evilness about Mr Curtain in The Mysterious Benedict Society Episode 3. They believe that Mr Curtain erases memories of people around. They decide to get to the root of this assumption based on Mr Bloom. While Mr Benedict and the kids are working hard to carry out their mission, Mr Curtain is working on his big plans. Amid all this, he calls Reynie to join him for lunch.
When Mr Curtain and Reynie have lunch, he tells the kid how his brother betrayed him. Reynie is shocked to learn this about Mr Benedict. When he tells about the conversation to other orphans, they worry about Mr Benedict betraying them too. The episode ends with Mr Benedict being worried about what his twin brother will do, and the kids wonder if they did right by saying yes to the mission!
