The OA Season 2 Episode 3 Recap

In the previous episode of Netflix’s The OA, Rachel died but seemed to have a connection with Buck of the original dimension. The OA season 2 episode 3 caught us up with how BBA and the boys were doing after Prairie’s death.


Following Prairie’s funeral, a cop pulled Steve and Jesse over but let them go because he knew who they were. Buck was preparing to move since his mother thought he needed a clean start. Steve had taught Angie the movements and wanted them to follow Prairie. Unfortunately, French still believed that Prairie’s story was made up. 

Betty had a dream that left her with a bloody nose, just like those that had happened to Prairie. The same night, Buck saw Rachel in his mirror. He knew it was her since she sang. Buck believed she came to him because he still left his door open. He realized the notes Rachel sang were B-B-A.

Unfortunately, when they went to check out Buck’s mirror, it was gone. Buck’s mom donated it to Goodwill. They would need to go to Gary to retrieve it. The boys convinced BBA to come with them as she was leaving to see her family.

They were able to track down the mirror but couldn’t stay at the store to wait for Rachel. Sonja, a girl working there, invited them to stay in the sanctuary of her father’s church. She had recognized them. They waited for Rachel, and though French could hear the same buzzing that had attracted Buck’s attention, they didn’t see her. Buck tried playing the B-B-A notes on the church organ to summon her.

When to Leave

The OA Season 2 Episode 3 Recap

French met with Abel to talk about finding Prairie’s books. He had promised Abel that he’d prove Prairie was telling the truth, and he felt he’d done the opposite. Abel assured French that they had gotten the books for Prairie at the advice of her counselor, after she told them her story.

While waiting at the church, French left to meet an older man he met on a dating app. They had sex, and French told him about Prairie. The man suggested a medium in Nebraska.

Aunt Lily

The OA Season 2 Episode 3 Recap

The boys and BBA went to see Aunt Lily, who believed she could help them. However, on the way to her house, the mirror had fallen off the car and shattered. When they presented the mirror shards to her, she was alarmed and demanded they cover all the mirrors in the house so Rachel’s spirit couldn’t go into one.

Aunt Lily charged them the deluxe package. She had set up a photographic plate for Rachel to provide a message. However, Rachel used the television to communicate to them. She told them it was only safe for BBA to go. An image of a rose-stained glass window showed on the screen, and BBA touched it.
