The Sinner Season 4 Review Contains No Spoilers
Harry Ambrose and Sonya (Bill Pullman and Jessica Hecht) visit Clark Harbor for holidays. Ambrose is now a retired cop, but he’s not fully recovered from everything he dealt in the previous case. The couple has a good time on the ferry, reading books and meeting new people. At the shore, Ambrose meets Percy (Alice Kremelberg), and they have a good talk. However, his vacation is ruined when he goes out for a walk at night.
Ambrose sees that Percy is fighting with someone and runs towards the sea. Ambrose never sees the other person and runs behind Percy to talk to her. However, Percy jumps into the sea. The cops don’t find her body the next day, so they assume she’s missing. Percy belongs to one of the prominent families at Clark Harbor, the Muldoons. Ambrose decides to assist cop Lou in investigating Percy’s case and finding the suspect.
From Percy’s family to a stalker to lover, everyone is a suspect. What happened to Percy, and who triggered her to jump in the sea? What shocking discovery will Ambrose make? Who is the main culprit? We find all the answers till the end.
The Sinner Season 4 on Netflix is the last season of the whodunnit Netflix series. In the show, the makers not only engross us in the investigations and mystery also gives us a deep insight into what really goes on in the minds of these criminals. Ambrose, who himself has a troubling past, has a unique way of handling every case. He’s doing the same in the latest season despite being retired.
The first two episodes of the show are quite slow. Keeping up can be an issue as it’s already a slow-burn thriller. So one has to be extra patient this time. The show picks up the pace from the third episode till the end. The makers could’ve wrapped the season in just 5 good episodes of an hour each.
Despite the slow pace, the story holds interests you till the end. Ambrose is already the viewers’ favourite. But Percy’s mysterious and shocking life and troubles work in the show’s favour. She’s a striking woman, not easy to read with many dark secrets. You want to stay to learn more and more about her and why she took such a drastic step. Another character that intrigues you is Meg Muldoon, played by Frances Fisher. Just like Percy, Meg’s a mystery and has many shades.
The climax of the fourth season of The Sinner on Netflix is mind-boggling. Some may have to watch it twice to make better sense of it. Actor Bill Pullman as Harry Ambrose is spectacular and will be dearly missed as an empathetic detective with strong instincts. Alice Kremelberg and Frances Fisher are also the star performers of the latest season. They are fascinating women about whom you’d like to know more. The rest of the cast also does a great job.
