City on a Hill Season 3 Ending Explained: ‘City on a Hill’ was ‘The Wire’ or ‘The Shield’ meets ‘The Town’ in its first season, but following Francis “Frankie” Ryan’s (Jonathan Tucker) arrest and eventual death, the series has steadily grown more like the first two and less like the latter.

City on a Hill: the Third Season, Episode 1: a Recap

‘City on a Hill’ is set in 1990s Boston and explores both the positive and negative qualities of a story set before the digital era. ‘Pax Bostonia,’ the season 2 finale, was extremely explosive. Several characters, including Kelvin and Maeve, were killed off, while Cathy flipped out on Boston and supposedly fled with her children for good. Siobhan (Lauren E. Banks), still traumatized by the loss of her pregnant child, quit her high-powered career at a private law company to work for the ACLU. Ward admitted to being a murderer after admitting that he knew Kelvin would be murdered in prison and still played a role in his incarceration. Faced with dismissal, Jackie threw his badge into Boston Harbor and resigned from the FBI.

Jackie starts working as the chief of security for Sinclair Dryden, the previous regional director of the bureau in Boston, in the season 3 premiere, titled “Gods and Monsters.” Sinclair rapes Dominique (Evelyn Giovine), an inebriated and unconscious female who is later revealed to be his daughter’s friend, in his opening scene. Letitia, his wife, knows exactly what he did to the girl (Joanne Kelly). Meanwhile, after a worker suffers serious injuries in an accident at the Big Dig construction site, Siobhan is ready to file a lawsuit against the project.

‘City on a Hill’ as production isn’t afraid to use shock to entice its audience. After establishing Sinclair’s character in the first scene, the writers move on to connect him to Jackie, effectively establishing the main cause of conflict between Jackie and Ward in this season. Sinclair is not just a former head of the FBI’s Boston office; he also comes from a wealthy family that once owned a large property in the city’s early days.

Sinclair may not have as much land as he once did, but he is still a highly important guy in the city. What he does to Dominique is most likely motivated by the conviction that he can get away with anything — an attitude of entitlement that is common in persons with a lot of money.
