So, we can’t expect any release date soon but if the series gets renewed for its third season, then taking into consideration the pattern, we can expect to have a release date by March this year or it may be delayed in the wake of ongoing COVID pandemic.
What Can We Expect From the Plot of Ruthless Season 3?
In the initial three episodes of The Oval, Ruth Truesdale (played by Melissa L. Williams) kidnaps her daughter Callie and pushes her to team up with her and the sex-crazed members of the Rakudushis cult in a backdoor pilot. Ruth is majorly observed in the Rakadushi faith.
She was given the award of the title of “Elder” by the cult in appreciation for her contribution in punishing her closest friend, Tally, for being a member of the deviant faction.
Though she was welcomed into the role of Elder, she had to be gang-raped in presence of The Highest by seven high-ranking members of the cult, along with Andrew and Dukhan.
After being gang-raped, Ruth and Tally’s closest friend decided to leave the cult.
The Rakadushis is headed by “The Highest,” portrayed by Matt Cedeo. The Supreme Being is differentiated by his long hair and his white costume. A calm attitude and openness run through his manner.
To keep his criminal record as a serial murderer and child predator a secret is the objective of this strategy. The medications provided by him lead newcomers to turn unconscious and they lose their memories, enabling him to assault them sexually. His addiction to drugs runs to him as well.
Cult leader Dikhan (played by Lenny Thomas) is the Highest’s right-hand man and a senior member of the organization.
Everything that takes place on the cult’s property is under his strict control. Despite his wonderful appearance and dedication to The Highest, Dikhan may be hostile and stiff in his attitude towards others.
According to the seventh episode of Season One Dukhan and The Highest have been in a relationship for 12 years. Dukhan is Bisexual. For a long time, he has been having a relationship with Ruth, but he has also been alluded to by Lynn (played by Nirdine Brown).
Ruth obtains Dikhan’s help to plan her flee from the cult, but Dikhan now has started feeling for Ruth.
It appears that Ruth is pregnant with Dikhan’s first child, as said by Dikhan himself. Taking into account his relationship with the Almighty, he needed to conceal his feelings for Ruth.
This also breaches the protocols of the cult, as per the author. Dikhan and Ruth are seen with mistrust by The Highest when he senses the smell of Ruth’s soap on his body.
Dikhan feels terrified and jealous because of the Highest’s admiration for Andrew and River. In the cult, Dikhan is criticized by all. The Highest is told of the cult members’ misconduct, and Dikhan generally gives advice and punishes them.
It was an undercover FBI agent, Andrew (played by Blue Kimble), who teamed up with the Rakadushi cult before apparently coming down with its views and becoming one of their most senior members. Andrew and his wife, Sarah, are the parents of a boy named Andrew III.
After joining the church and becoming a devoted disciple, he had a sexual connection with Tally (Yvonne Senat Jones), a member of the Rakadushi sect, which was strictly forbidden by the faith’s rules. The fascination that Andrew has for Tally results in her getting pregnant.
Tally is just not aware of the fact that Andrew is a married FBI agent who also works as an undercover spy in the same organization. Andrew is a devoted follower of the teachings and practices of the Rakadushi sect.
Although Tally is perpetually torn between her moral values and her feelings for him, he also is continuously pulled between the two feelings.
Tally begins to have confusion regarding Andrew’s commitment to her after discovering that he was one of the seven men liable for Ruth’s gang rape.
Dikhan, who was head over heels in love with The Highest and had expressed his dedication to the religion by having a sexual relationship with The Highest once, was especially outraged by this development.
We are sure if the series gets renewed, we will get to see what happens next to them.
We will keep you updated with all the latest information, until then stay tuned.
