In The Great season 3, Catherine and Peter are attempting to make their marriage work — what's a little murder attempt or two between lovers? Peter is at loose ends playing First Husband to Catherine's reign, so he keeps himself with fathering, hunting and salty culinary ventures. Unfortunately, contentment doesn't last long as he's tormented by visions of his late father (played by Jason Isaacs).

Meanwhile, Catherine starts making a name for herself beyond her borders. Inspired by a visit from the American ambassador, she sets up a conference where peasants, nobles and merchants can all give their input on developing a new Russia. But she soon learns that even the best political leaders sometimes need to make compromises in order to progress.
