The time has finally come. Devi Vishmakumar is officially in a relationship with her dream man and the hottest guy in school, Payton Hall-Yoshida.
Netflix’s Season 3 of “Never Have I Ever” is nothing short of drama, love triangles and life lessons. The show is a teen comedy about 15-year-old Devi, an Indian-American girl navigating through high school after the death of her father causing her legs to be paralyzed.
The new season confirms that Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and Payton (Darren Barnet) finally made their relationship official. Yet with every relationship comes with its trials and tribulations.
In this case, Devi faces hardships such as internet trolls, rekindled friendships and new love interests — one who is an Indian boy named Nirdesh (Anirudh Pisharody) attending an elite private school that is introduced later in the season.
As viewers see Devi’s love story unfold throughout the 10 episodes, we also get a glimpse into narratives about her smart ex-boyfriend Ben, her two love-sick best friends — Eleanor and Fabiola — and her perfect cousin Kamala.
The smarty pants of school, Ben Gross (Jaren Lewison) continues his relationship with soccer player Anessa Qureshi (Meghan Suri) — a former nemesis of Devi. However, Anessa soon comes to notice that Ben hasn’t been showing her as much interest as she would like.
Eleanor is the only single person in her friend group after her breakup in Season 1. However, while focusing on her blossoming acting career, someone finally catches her eye and that confuses her the rest of junior year.
Devi’s other best friend, Fabiola Torres (Lee Rodriguez), continues with her relationship with her girlfriend Eve. Their relationship hits a massive bump that sets the tone for the rest of season.
Devi’s cousin Kamala (Richa Moorjani) has a difficult time when it comes to her arranged marriage. Last season, Kamala was about to receive a proposal from Prashant, a relationship that was arranged by Kamala and Devi’s grandmother. Kamala continues having a hard time accepting an arranged marriage and marriage at all.
Throughout the season, the audience sees new and unforeseen friendships blossom, heartaches and new relationships, and people finding themselves through the unexpected. The outcomes of each relationship are very unpredictable and keep viewers on their toes.
Between Devi’s back and forth relationship with Payton, a new boy in town and Ben’s relationship on the rocks, viewers wouldn’t be able to predict her decision. Besides choosing a romantic partner, Devi also has a big decision to make in the last episode that will determine the outcome of Season 4, the final season.
Overall, with all the different narratives and love stories, each storyline flows naturally and is entertaining to watch.
