‘Women At War’ Episode 3: Recap And Ending, Explained: Who Is Colin? How Is He Related To Marguerite?

The previous episode of “Women at War” revealed that Dewitt’s brother Charles came back from Paris since he was fired from the Ministry of War. He had malicious intentions to convert the truck factory into an ammunition manufacturing factory. Along with Marcel, he had bribed the Laveyre company, and they refused to pay for the trucks manufactured by Caroline. On the same day, Mother Agnes recognized Suzanne’s true identity and tried to get more information about her from Sister Pelagie in Paris. Things took a different turn when Marguerite was caught at the army quarters and sent back to the brothel where Marcel found out about officer Colin; Marcel had found his picture inside Marguerite’s purse and pursued him at the army quarters.

The next day, Colin and his men were invited to the brothel, and he met Marguerite. At the beginning of “Women at War” Episode 3, Marguerite is shocked to see Colin, and it is revealed that Colin is her child. Marguerite tried to leave the room, but Marcel stopped her. A drunk customer grabbed her forcefully, and Colin attacked him. Colin stepped out of the brothel, and Marguerite followed him. They talked, and Colin told her to quit the job if she wanted to reject customers. But Colin had assured Marguerite that he wouldn’t harm her. Colin left the brothel with the other officers and waved her goodbye. Marcel heard their conversations from afar and questioned Marguerite. Even though Marguerite was Colin’s mother, he hadn’t recognized her, and Marcel promised to keep this a secret. The next morning, Marguerite woke up to a nightmare, and it was her biggest fear. In her dreams, Colin was murdered by the enemies, and Marguerite was crying next to his body. She woke up and tried to get some sleep again. Marguerite had been in the prostitution industry for a very long time, and maybe the child had been fathered by one of her clients. But there were many possibilities in the story, and the upcoming episodes will reveal everything. 

Marcel invited Marguerite to his office and offered her Colin’s badge. He had lost it, and Marcel wanted her to give it back to him. For some reason, Marcel had been helping Marguerite to reunite with her son. In return, she requested Marcel to stay away from Colin. The same day, workers assembled around Caroline’s manor since none of the trucks had been shipped. They had been waiting for their payment as they had put all their efforts into this. Caroline stepped outside and tried to talk with the ladies, but they were disappointed by Caroline’s words since she couldn’t pay their debts. So, Caroline offered her necklace in exchange, the workers were extremely happy with her actions, and she gained their trust. Caroline wanted them to trust her with the orders, and now the workers had been supporting her with the same. Caroline arrived at the brothel and met Marguerite; she apologized to Marguerite for the past. Soon, it was revealed that Caroline had abandoned her at a brothel. In the past, they had decided to flee together, but Caroline couldn’t take it anymore, and she left without Marguerite. In reality, Caroline had waited for Marguerite, but she’d refused to escape, and Caroline had no choice but to leave her behind. Back then, Caroline’s husband, Victor Dewitt, had been her regular customer. They fell in love, and Caroline got married. Even though Marguerite was a very important part of her life, Caroline had chosen to save herself.

Back at the church, the patients struggled with their mental health. They had been suffering from post-traumatic stress, and some of them even became delusional. Agnes hid these men in the church because they were not fit to fight. But the officers had found out about this and demanded to take them back. Suzanne had supported Agnes with her decisions, but Agnes couldn’t trust her. One by one, all the patients were sent back, and the final one started speaking. All this time, he didn’t speak, and Agnes believed that he had lost his voice from the war. In reality, his name was Till. He belonged to the German army, and he was scared to share his true identity. Despite everything, the soldier chose to stay away from the battlefield. The story then moved to Charles; he arrived at the French headquarters and secured permission for the exemption papers from the General. Caroline was offended by his actions since he made this decision without consulting her. She wanted to consult Dewitt and get his permission, but Charles had insisted that there was no time left. So, Caroline requested Eleonore to put an end to this since this conversion could destroy everything that Dewitt and her father had created in the past. 

Things took a different angle for Mother Agnes and Suzanne. A patient had been choking since his wounds had turned into a blood clot. Suzanne immediately took control and created an incision in his neck and removed the clot. Soon, Dr. Duvernet arrived, and he praised Suzanne for this quick move. Soon, Agnes received a call from Sister Pelagie, who couldn’t provide her with any information on Jeanne Charrier. So, Agnes asked her about Suzanne, and Sister Pelagie told her that Suzanne had been a nurse at Salpêtrière and that she had been conducting illegal abortions at the hospital and officer Louis’ wife had been her last patient; Suzanne botched the surgery, and she lost her life, and since then Suzanne had been missing. Agnes had decided to complain about Suzanne and called the Saint-Paulin police station. But, before she could say anything, Suzanne had entered Agnes’ room and informed her about the four patients. The officers had allowed them to be treated, and Suzanne was the one who’d made it possible. She had convinced officer Joseph to permit more treatment for them since these patients needed to recover mentally.

The next day, Marguerite arrived at the army quarters to meet Colin, and they managed to have a conversation. Soon, the enemies started firing at them, and somehow Colin managed to get Marguerite and officer Leon back to her car, and he rushed back to the quarters again. Caroline and Eleonore got into an argument because she’d sold her necklace to the workers. Eleonore tried to convince Caroline as she had already allowed Charles to take over the factory. Soon, the maid arrived, and she told Caroline that Madeleine traveled to the church alone to find her father among the patients. So, Caroline arrived at the church, where she found Marguerite with officer Leon, Colin’s ally. She brought him to the church to get him treated, and soon all four ladies were united. Leon was Joseph’s younger brother, he tried his best to save him, but Leon lost his life. The third episode of “Women at War” ended on a painful note; while Suzanne managed to calm Joseph, Agnes cried her heart out while Till embraced her in his arms. But there’s a catch, at the end of this episode, a wounded stranger arrives at the church asking for his wife, Jeanne Charrier. Now, things were going to get messy, as Suzanne’s identity was at stake.
