‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Season 5, Episode 3 Recap & Ending, Explained

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s second episode showed Miriam starting her new position as a writer for Gordon Ford’s Show. After facing Mei’s relatives downstairs of his club, Joel had awoken bloodied and injured, while Shirley and Moishe appeared hell-bent on breaking up. While Rose sees her hopes destroyed as the matchmakers commit arson by attacking her favorite tea shop, Abe is hounded by one of his clients.

What Was Abe Absolutely Disappointed Of?

The Marvelous 3rd Season Episode After learning that her six-year-old son Ethan had sneaked into her bed, Miriam concludes her workday with a jumpscare in the first episode of Mrs. Maisel. This triggers a scene change that transports us to the present, when adult Ethan meets his mother Miriam and introduces his fiancée. Miriam made her son swear to stay married while she thought about his future job possibilities because he had entered the fields and was training to be the next Rabbi. This took the audience back to the previous morning, when Ethan was being slowly and carefully led back into his room after Miriam and Joel had spoken with his psychiatrist. This brought on a lot of duct tape. They were using duct tape to indicate Ethan’s future sleeping locations when Abe entered the room and questioned their sanity. His morning had been completely consumed by a tiny mistake of his, therefore he was unable to wait to hear their response.

Abe Weissman accidentally wrote a name in his piece that was missing a letter, necessitating the publication of a correction the very following day. He did not understand how he could have made such a typo, but that tiny error had almost made him lose his mind. Abe spent the entire morning calling the Village Voice paper’s subscribers to apologize and asking them for their support. He then called his employer Gabe to inquire about the word count required for an apology piece. Prior to Susie interjecting and ordering him to turn over the phone to Miriam, Gabe commands him to limit his response to fifteen words rather than fifteen hundred and manages Abe fairly effectively. Abe resolves this problem of his, but it is obvious that he has not yet found peace with it because he subsequently uses this as a lesson to encourage Ethan to be brave. Despite his good intentions, he managed to terrify Ethan into forgetting all about his progress and going back to Miriam’s bed.

Did Rose Get Even With The Matchmakers?

After the matchmakers Benedetta, Gitta, Molly, and Miss Em set fire to her tea parlor, where she had her meetings, Rose developed severe anxiety and paranoia. They were all highly interconnected, which is why Rose was at a loss for words as to how to handle the circumstance. She thus made up her mind and went to Susie’s office. She told her about how they had burned down the tea shop as they talked about her issue. Since that was the only location where they offered high-quality whipped cream, Susie was incredibly angry. Susie requested that Rose hold her meetings in the room across from her so she could focus on booking her clients for additional assignments. The two goons Susie had made friends with, Nicky and Frank, hung there and saw Susie and Rose talking.

Dinah and Susie talked about what they could do for Rose once she was moved to the subsequent room, but Susie consistently rejected Dinah’s suggestion that she ask Frank and Nicky for assistance. Because Rose was linked to Miriam, Nicky and Frank might have eventually felt sorry for Susie and Rose, but instead they intervened on their own behalf. The other matchmakers who knew about the arson, including Benedetta, were also detained. Since Molly had passed away from shock at seeing the cops at her door and her area was now available for grabs, Benedetta had even sent Susie to Rose to make a deal. Susie didn’t know about it, but she manipulated the dialogue to give Rose the upper hand as they permanently fixed Rose’s predicament because it didn’t appear that Benedetta would be released from prison any sooner.

Did Miriam Get Fired From Her Job?

That day, Miriam got off to a decent start when her joke was accepted and written into the script. She now had a point to her name on the scoreboard, and her coworkers were beginning to take her seriously. She does not explain what transpired during Gordon’s monologue later on, when he stumbled over her joke and had to follow it up with another. Miriam’s grunt at that slip-up was undoubtedly audible, which might have cost her the job. Later that night, when they went out to the bars, Miriam walked up to Gordon intending to apologize as Mike had advised; but, when he refused to acknowledge her, she lost her cool and yelled at him. He was challenged by Miriam, who did not relent for even a split second. She tried to get Gordon to confess his error, but his ego would not allow it. This disagreement took place in front of the entire cast of the show plus a few notable individuals. As a result, she was the target of some harsh statements in the media the next day as she wondered if she would actually get the job.

In case she was asked to leave the workplace, Miriam brought a small showcase to put her belongings. However, she was quickly engulfed in a whirlwind of activity. Gordon had been holding off on giving her a chat, but when the talk show succeeded and the cast went out drinking and ice skating, it was briefly forgotten. Gordon suggested that Miriam join in the fun after spotting her skating and talking to Susie over to the side. So it was safe to conclude that Miriam kept her job because when she went to Gordon to fix the problem, he almost kissed her and made flirtatious comments to her. After snuggling Ethan into bed and rejecting all of his overtures, Miriam closed the episode and her night by dozing off while holding Esther.

Final Thoughts

The series’ constant jumping forward and backward seems a touch hurried on the side of the creator. The storyline in which Gordon is depicted as one of Miriam’s fans serves only to highlight how endearing she is, but it wasn’t really necessary. Miriam’s clever asides helped to diffuse Gordon’s suave courting skills and the energy between the two characters, but they left a lot to the audience’s imagination. If she had chosen to date him later and he wasn’t already married to his wife, they would have been a compatible couple. With the Diva-like personalities, first Shy Baldwin and then Gordon Ford, Miriam truly appears to click. She does, after all, understand them, which makes it simpler for her to relax and talk to them because she often exhibits similar traits.

Abe is overthinking things, which is why he is fretting and obsessing over his error. Abe had the fortitude to start trying to make things right, whereas we would rather for the earth to just swallow us whole. The fact that he took responsibility of the situation and attempted to make things right or at least make up for it was a truly bold action, but it did not lessen his uneasiness or guilt. One of the most endearing characters in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is Abe.
