Dead to Me Season 3 Plot
According to Netflix Tudum, “The final outing of the dark comedy wraps up the story of two friends with a growing rap sheet: Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini), whose lives are entangled with Bad Twin Steve (RIP by bludgeoning/drowning) and Good Twin Ben (both played by Marsden).” “You’re going to want to see how this one ends,” Marsden promises.
But first, a rapid-fire recap: Judy (accidentally) kills Jen’s husband; Judy contrives to meet Jen in a widow support group; Jen (purposefully) kills Judy’s boyfriend, Steve, and buries his body in her meat freezer; Jen confesses to a detective and, assuming she’ll be imprisoned, leaves letters for Judy and her two sons; the detective lets off Jen with a warning (after all, Steve was a horrible human); and in a call-back to Season 1, Ben hits Jen and Judy’s car and drives off.
SPOILER ALERT: We knew that Ben survived this hit and run, but in Season 3, Jen and Judy receive shocking news and are ready to risk their lives for a friendship that’s above the law. The first glimpse of Season 3 reveals that both women live (for now), although one is in much better shape than the other. True to the character, Jen, in a gurney and neck brace, isn’t suffering in silence lest you think the series has lost any of its edges; Jen, Judy, and a nurse drop six f-bombs in the course of 14 seconds.

Jen confesses to Detective Perez that she murdered Steve, and the two drive to the makeshift burial place but are unable to locate the body.
Perez receives a text message from Nick that says, “We got him” (Chief Hastings), and after bonding through their mother’s death when they were both young, Perez decides not to report Jen. Furthermore, Judy finally receives her paintings back from Perez. Judy smashes the paintings after Perez has left, revealing multiple stacks of $100 banknotes hidden in the backings.
Ben receives a phone call informing him that a hiker and her dog discovered Steve’s body. Judy declines her mother’s offer to assist her in getting out of jail. Jen attends a grief support group and finds she never grieved the death of her mother. Judy and Jen pay Lorna a visit to buy out Jen’s mortgage, then drive home in a modest new automobile that Jen intends to give to Charlie.
The car is subsequently hit by another vehicle, which is revealed to be driven by an intoxicated Ben. Ben races away after looking down at a half-empty bottle of whiskey. Both Judy and Jen awaken, damaged but alive. Take a look at the official trailer for the prior season below:
