The Rain Season 3 Full Plot Explained
Netflix’s The Rain keeps its story moderately basic in its initial two seasons. The arrangement follows individuals escaping from an infection in Denmark, just to find one of their own, Rasmus (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen), can really host and control the spread. This prompts his sister, Simone (Alba August), attempting to choose whether she should remain close by as he’s evolving intellectually.
In any case, as he breaks awful and accumulates his own multitude of the contaminated, the third and last season loses believability on account of a few key plot openings that emerge, making the finale somewhat messy. Also, it’s totally done just to make Rasmus all the more intriguing.
The Hidden Flower
Simone flees from Rasmus after he takes over Apollon and plans to infect the world. He wants to create human hybrids like himself but she jumps into a lake to escape, eventually meeting Daniel and his family outside the quarantine zone. Simone later discovers they’ve been hiding a unique purple flower, the nectar of which is actually the cure. However, the family doesn’t want her to take it back to Apollon or using it to kill Rasmus.
But this makes no sense because if Simone finds scientists willing to mass produce a cure, it’ll save Europe and the world. Daniel’s family would be safer, too, so they should want her to do this, and they should want her to use it to kill Rasmus as he’s threatening their way of life. Hiding it makes no sense as the cure would purify the planet once more, ensuring society rebuilds and criminal scavengers no longer hunt them.
In the end, they do take the flower to the city hoping to find doctors, which reiterates Daniel’s family had a stupid plan initially. Saving the world will save them from isolation and allow them the liberty they were robbed of, and they could have just given her samples from the onset, not the entire plant.
The Virus’ Aggression
The infection is forceful to any individual who compromises it or its host, for example, Rasmus. It’s like Marvel’s Venom symbiote on Eddie Brock, which is the reason it additionally keeps Martin down and attempts to prevent him from taking the fix. It’s about self-safeguarding: it attempts to regenerate one’s body and brain, be that as it may, it does nothing when Rasmus endeavors self-destruction by embracing the plant in the finale.
He’s really grasped by Sarah, his tainted darling, directly after the infection ascends to assault Simone. We don’t have the foggiest idea why it avoids slaughtering Rasmus’ sister, or why it doesn’t pull Rasmus back when he ends it all. It wrestled with Martin so much and it ought to have driven Sarah away as she joined Rasmus. But then, it lets her embrace him, so the guidelines appear to be broken with respect to whether the infection has transformed into a radical.
This bucks congruity on the grounds that once a danger is around it’ll attempt to eliminate the host body and accept it as distant as could reasonably be expected, that is, on the off chance that it can’t slaughter the danger. It couldn’t murder the plant, as the blossoms retain the infection, so it ought to have pulled the couple away and nailed them down, particularly as other contaminated casualties were around viewing the self-destruction happen, which implied the infection had troopers around that just selected to be observers for reasons of plot contraption.
Release Date of The Rain Season 3
Netflix confirmed that The Rain season 3 will be coming back for a third and final series on June 18, 2019. The announcement confirmed that the show will be expected for release in 2020.

This read: “Survival Squad: We’ll see you in 2020 for a third and final season.”Series one featured eight episodes while season two featured six, so it’s not yet clear how many will be in the third outing.
How Does The Rain Season 3 End?
With oh-so-much death. Earlier in Season 3, Rasmus infected Martin (Mikkel Følsgaard) with the deadly virus in an attempt to save his life. It worked, but it wasn’t long before the power of that mysterious virus went to his head. In The Rain‘s second to the last episode, Martin tried to prove to his girlfriend Simone (Alba August) that he had full control of the virus inside of him. And he was very wrong.
Martin quickly lost control, and the virus tried to attack Simone. Scared that he would murder the love of his life, Martin took the only other option available. He swallowed the cure that he knew would kill the disease. Simone was saved, but Martin didn’t survive the antidote.
Do you know who immediately knew about Martin’s death? Rasmus (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen). Because Rasmus saved Martin’s life when he jumped into the river, they were connected by the same virus. Rasmus felt the moment Martin died and assumed that Simone was the one who killed him. Yes, assuming someone’s loving romantic partner would randomly murder them is insane. He’s not the smartest cookie around. But this assumption cemented Rasmus’ belief that he had to kill Simone before Simone killed him.
At the same time, Simone came to the same conclusion. Knowing that Rasmus has been resurrecting people from death and growing his own infected cult she vowed to try and kill her brother before he killed her.
Simone and her tribe set up an ambush for Rasmus. But her little brother was too sneaky for them. Instead of capturing and murdering Rasmus, they murdered one of his followers believing he was Rasmus. That betrayal spelled chaos. Simone’s side and Rasmus’ side went to war with each other, each confident they were doing the right thing.
Simone wasn’t the one who ended this war; it was the resurrected Sarah (Clara Rosager). Throughout this season Rasmus’ girlfriend has maintained a level head. She’s reminded Rasmus several times that his sister has only cared and looked out for him, and she’s even gone as far as to question whether or not they should even be alive. They are basically infected zombies. Rasmus has routinely ignored her. Yet in the only moment when it really counted he listened.
Thanks to Sarah’s reasoning, Rasmus finally understood that the only way to save humanity was to eliminate this virus once and for all. He gave himself to the plant that provided the antidote, thereby sacrificing his life as well as the lives of his followers.
That one selfless moment paid off as The Rain‘s final minutes are ones of hope. As Patrick (Lukas Løkken) and Fie (Natalie Madueño) coo over their newborn child, there’s a sense of happiness. This baby is the first to be born in this post-apocalyptic world, and this mismatched family is moving on. In The Rain‘s final moments, Simone thanks her little brother for his sacrifice and tell him that she loves him.
