Sex Education Season 3: 12 Questions That Must Be Answered
Will Maeve and Isaac become the next hot couple?!
Netflix's Sex Education has returned with another profound season. After a chlamydia outbreak at Moordale High, Jean is hired to implement better sex education as the students continue to struggle topical issues while navigating sex, relationships and identity.
Otis must face the pressures of high school romance now that he's in a relationship with Ola. Maeve has been suspended and works at a pretzel shop. Eric strikes up a new romance with French transfer student Rahim, while Adam struggles to adjust to military school.
The series makes a subtle shift that allows the female characters to come to the foreground of the drama. Aimee experienced sexual assault which is handled with care as the series takes the time to highlight the long-lasting effects of trauma.
Sex Education also explored other themes such as asexuality, menopause and the morning after pill. Not to mention it briefly touched upon ghost fetishes -- something fun that the series should revisit to be honest.
Due to the abundance of diverse characters and their complex storylines, we're left with some unanswered questions which will hopefully be answered in season 3.

12. Will Jean Get Justice?
Mr. Groff is already unhappy with Jean assessing Moordale’s sex ed program, but things get even worse when his wife befriends her. Maureen reveals that Groff hasn’t touched her in six years and she eventually joins Jean’s vagina workshop and asks Groff for a divorce.
Blaming Jean for his wife’s abrupt decision, Groff steals her private notebook from Otis’ locker (as Otis stoke it first), photocopies the pages and distributes them around the school. Groff calls a meeting and promises to get to the bottom of this, though he doesn’t hesitate to first Jean for incompetence.
Although the students’ embarrassing sex secrets cause chaos, the situation isn’t really explored properly in terms of anyone wanting justice. It’s clear that Jean suspects Groff, but it doesn’t seem like she can do anything about it – especially if she also suspects Otis.
Hopefully season 3 will allow Jean to find a way to get revenge against Groff in a more unconventional way. It’s a pretty big deal for something like this to happen, so let’s hope the incident doesn’t get brushed under the rug.
