Barry Season 3 Episode 4 Ending: Who Did Barry Kill?

The episode opens with a woman speaking to her husband on the phone. However, the scene quickly turns dark as her husband is shot dead by none other than barry. Moreover, Barry’s expert marksmanship is on full display during the scene, hinting that he has embraced his darker side. However, the scene provides no clues about the man’s identity. Throughout the episode, the story of the wife and son of the deceased man is fleshed out for the viewers, and they learn about Barry being the killer of their loved one. The episode’s final moments depict the mother-son duo purchasing a gun to kill Barry. Therefore, it is evident that Fuches’ plan is coming to fruition, and he is plotting revenge on Barry indirectly. After all, it was Fuches who revealed to the woman that Barry killed her husband.

However, the husband’s identity might be more closely tied to Barry and his criminal past. In one scene, viewers see Fuches meeting with the father of Ryan Madison, the aspiring actor who was Barry’s first target in LA. While Barry did not kill Ryan, he was implicated in the struggling actor’s murder. Fuches informs Ryan’s father that Barry killed his son in hopes of setting the man on a path for revenge against Barry. The scene smoothly transitions to the wife and son of the unidentified man as they learn about Barry’s crime in a similar fashion to Ryan’s father. Hence, it is likely that the man Barry kills in the episode’s opening moments is Ryan’s father. How this twist will affect Barry’s quest for redemption remains to be seen.
