I just watched S3 Episode 3 -- and I continue to think that this season is every bit as good as Season 1. But there's a different feel to it, too -- S1 was more of a straight-up thriller, with the focus on suspense and solving a mystery. There's a mystery (maybe several) to be solved this season, as well, but it doesn't strike me as a "thriller" this time around. I'm not sure *what* I would call it, actually -- it's something more nuanced, less genre. The mood, at least for me, is a creeping sense of dread...a kind of "This Cannot End Well" burgeoning anxiety that comes to me from *all* directions (and not just the obvious).

Spoilers for Ep 3.3! )

The whole episode left me very unsettled. We're not just watching a whodunnit this season. There are layers of complexity and subtlety now, and if it keeps going in this vein, I think this season is going to be one to rewatch several times.
