Season 3 introduces Garret Dillahunt as FBI agent Glen Moranis, a seemingly tenacious and brilliant investigator who takes on the Steve Wood murder case after Steve’s body is found buried in a national park (where Jen and Judy buried him in Season 2). Most of the time he lingers in the background, the other shoe waiting to drop. When Jen thinks he took one of her coffee mugs to compare its DNA to one found on Steve’s body, her first disturbing instinct is to kill him by spiked painkillers into a batch of scones. This moment is a false alarm, but in episode 8 when it is revealed that he did In order to get her DNA from a discarded water bottle, Jen shows up in his hotel room with a load of freshly baked scones. By the end of the next episode he is dead.
Coincidence? In episode 10 we hear that the FBI framed the deaths of Steve and Moranis on the Greek mafia, which we saw loitering around the hotel after Jen left, and from whom Steve stole millions of dollars. Certainly seems how Jen committed a premeditated murder — her first, as she killed Steve in self-defense — but it’s not a topic the show focuses on in its final moments. “Ultimately, this isn’t really a crime and punishment show,” Feldman told Vulture after the season premiere. “It’s really a show about grief and friendship, so that always influences the storytelling.”
