Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 3 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 3

The brilliant Scott Frank returns to the realm of television four years hence after his smashing success with Netflix’s The Queen Gambit. Frank and co-creator Tom Fontana are the showrunners for Season 1 of Monsieur Spade, AMC’s new noir offering. Frank has taken the mantle of directing as well as co-writing all the episodes in the limited series. Clive Owen headlines AMC’s ambitious project, which will evolve around the character of Detective Sam Spade from Dashiell Hammett‘s novel The Maltese Falcon.

AMC has partnered up with the French Groupe Canal+ to co-produce the series. 

We are excited to bring you coverage of all the episodes in Season 1 with episodic recaps and preview articles for each new episode, assisting you to keep up with the unfolding drama. 

Here is everything you need to know about Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 3, including its release date, time, and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Monsieur Spade?

Monsieur Spade will be available to watch on the AMC channel for our cable network viewers in the US and Canada. The episodes will also be available to stream simultaneously on its streaming platform, AMC+. In addition to the host network, Acorn TV will also host the new episodes in these geographies. Presently, we are not aware of any more streaming options other than those mentioned above. 

Unfortunately, for our readers in the UK, Australia, and the Indian sub-continent, Monsieur Spade Season 1 will not be available to stream at the same release time as in the US. However, we expect that to change in the coming weeks after the show makes its domestic debut. 

Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 3 Release Date

Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 3 will be released on Sunday 28th January at 9 pm (ET)/(PT). Expect the runtime to be roughly 47 minutes or thereabouts, which is consistent with the time frame for shows of similar stature on the network. Additionally, viewers who miss the premiere can also catch a rerun of the first episode on 1st February (Thursday) at 2 pm on AMC.  

The show will stick to a weekly release schedule after the first episode has aired, tugging the Sunday airings at the same time.

The new episode of Monsieur Spade does not have a specific title. The episode will be available to stream with subtitles. Its plot summary is currently not available. However, we can expect another thread of the story to unravel in the form of Zahid and his connection with Philippe. 

How Many Episodes Will Monsieur Spade Have?

Season 1 of Monsieur Spade will have a total of six episodes. After the third episode has aired, there will be three more episodes left in the series. AMC is not expected to make any scheduling changes. But in case that happens, we will update our readers through these weekly preview articles. 

What happened in Episode 2?

Episode 2 of Monsieur Spade isn’t as eventful as the season opener. But it still has a compelling force that drives the narrative forward. Spade is reluctantly pulled out of retirement to investigate the murder of the nuns. His task is doubled when Teresa and he are attacked in the car by an unidentified gunman. Spade must find out who did it and why. Another mystery that presents itself to him is that of Sister Angelique.

The convent has no records of her in the files. Teresa reveals that Philippe hid her in the army’s quarters, later bringing her to the city. A month later, he brought along a little boy, Zahid, and asked Teresa to hide him in the bell tower of the manor. Spade finds a locket around Angelique’s neck that has a photo of Zahid and her. But the little one’s whereabouts are currently unknown.

The episode also delves into Jean Pierre’s issues. He is suffering from PTSD due to his involvement in the Algerian war. It has affected his marriage with Marguerite. Day by day, he is becoming delusional and growing determined to challenge Spade’s stake in the club. It is revealed that Patrice shared a special friendship with Elizabeth, the Mother Superior. 

When an inspector from the ministry comes to take the bodies to Paris and overtake the investigation, Patrice threatens to be violent with him. He wants to get to the bottom of the issue himself and find the hooded monk who killed the nuns. Teresa reveals she encountered him that night and managed to stab him as well. The episode ends ominously as Zahid cowers behind the curtains of Marguerite’s club with a gun.
