Barry (2022): S03E01 – Forgiving Jeff


Introduction

Barry is an American dark comedy-crime television series created by Alec Berg and Bill Hader that premiered on HBO on 25 March 2018.

Hader stars as Barry Berkman, a former US Marine and a hitman, from Cleveland who travels to Los Angeles to kill someone but finds himself joining an acting class taught by Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler), where he meets aspiring actress Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg) and begins to question his path in life as he deals with his criminal associates such as Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root) and NoHo Hank (Anthony Carrigan).

Outline

A depressed Barry returns to contract killing, taking jobs on the dark web while still auditioning for acting work. His relationship with Sally has become lifeless, as Sally has become preoccupied with writing and starring in Joplin, a semi-autobiographical TV series. Hank is questioned by the police regarding Moss’s murder and the monastery shooting; he diverts their attention away from Barry by identifying Fuches (who is hiding in Chechnya) as the culprit, claiming he is a high-level Chechen assassin. The police, believing Barry’s alibi and unable to verify Fuches’s real identity, accept Hank’s statement and relay it to Gene, who refuses to believe that Barry is blameless. Barry approaches Hank, who is now in a romantic relationship with Cristobal, and asks him for work, but Hank turns him away. Gene meets privately with Barry and threatens him at gunpoint over Moss’s murder, but his prop gun falls apart. Barry subdues Gene and takes him to the outskirts of the city, preparing to execute him. Gene pleads for his life, telling Barry that he can earn his forgiveness. Barry then has an idea, telling Gene to get into the trunk of his car.
