The Rectify Season 3 Plot:
Rectify follows the life of Daniel Holden (Young), recently released from prison after serving nineteen years on death row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend. When DNA evidence casts doubt on his conviction, Holden returns to his family and his hometown where the murder occurred and where many still believe he is guilty. Daniel spent all of his adult life waiting to die; now he must learn how to live again or decide if he even wants to while others determine whether or not he will have that chance.
Season 3 picks up where Season 2 left off, on the very afternoon of Daniel’s plea deal. Will the deal be accepted? Will Daniel be forced to leave town? And when the body of a missing person is discovered, law enforcement once again turns to him for answers. Amantha attempts to have a life outside of Daniel’s situation and is offered a promotion at Thrifty Town. Tawney and Ted Jr., meantime, struggle to decide if their marriage has a future. As they both delve into their pasts for answers, parental ghosts abound which may help them understand how to navigate the present.
