In “Jack Ryan” Season 3, Ryan stumbles upon a secret plan to revive the Soviet Empire called the Sokol Project. He assembles a team to retrieve it and ends up rescuing a Russian insider with too much information, but the insider is killed, and Ryan is pursued by Russian forces and the CIA. Meanwhile, Czech President Alena Kovac witnesses the assassination of the Russian Defense Minister.

Krasinski’s portrayal of Jack Ryan is exceptional. Although, the other characters come across as mono-dimensional. In closing, “Jack Ryan” Season 3 is an intriguing series to watch due to its politics, characters, and action.   Even so, I did prefer the previous 2 episodes.  This series is for anyone familiar with the series and or anyone interested in the action/intrigue format.
