Episode 3 of Obsession begins at a family dinner, as Ingrid mentions the possibility of having an engagement party soon. Anna is a little anxious and Jay comes in for her support. William is not happy about the situation though. His intense desire and lust for Anna have come in the way of his fatherly love obsessed. He excuses himself to go to the washroom and Anna follows.
Anna asks him not to repeat his flagrant rule-breaking in Paris. She makes it clear that she cannot keep up with William’s affair without raising alerts, and they have to be careful. William wants her all for himself but that cannot happen either.
William tells her about the threatening texts and Anna thinks it is Peggy. When she confronts her, Peggy says it is not her. This is not the first time Anna has done something scandalous and improper, and it would seem that someone else has got a whiff of their sordid affair.
Jay comes up to the apartment, no longer able to wait in the cab. Anna is reluctant to introduce them properly and he asks her to allow him to be a part of her life. William seems to think it might be Nadia. Peggy calls Anna and says that she will be there for her when Elizabeth, Anna’s mother, sees Jay for the first time.
