Lupin season 3 ended with a surprising cliffhanger, raising questions that will need to be answered in season 4.
Assane’s betrayal and imprisonment suggest that someone close to him may have been working against him.
The motivations and actions of various characters, such as Benjamin, Mariama, and Juliette, will need to be explained in season 4.
Netflix’s Lupin season 3 ended on a surprising cliffhanger after Assane’s purportedly last heist aimed to tie up all loose ends, leading to various questions ensuing that Lupin season 4 will have to answer. Lupin season 2’s ending bringing Hubert Pellegrini to justice finally avenged Assane’s father Babakar, with Assane posthumously restoring Babakar’s reputation by sharing with the world how Hubert employed Babakar only to let him take the fall for a robbery that never happened before killing him. However, Lupin season 3 soon brought Assane back to Paris, after his successful disappearance only intensified the public’s interest in him, resulting in his family being hounded by journalists and detectives.
Lupin season 3’s final heist was supposed to let his family move on by letting his highly public but fake death stop everybody from being interested in him, but Keller’s abduction of Assane’s estranged mother complicated things. While Assane eventually managed to protect his family and be reunited with his mother, surrendering himself to the police was what he thought was needed so they could truly be free. Still, Lupin season 3’s ending unveiled Assane might have been led to believe that because someone close to him betrayed him, making even more questions arise that Lupin season 4 needs to answer.

At this point, Assane didn’t know much about Mariama, as they hadn’t talked for 25 years. Claire and Raoul’s abduction makes much more sense for Keller, as he wanted to hit Assane where it hurt the most. Choosing Mariama instead of Claire and Raoul hints at her potentially helping and taking part in Keller’s plan to make Assane pay, and Lupin season 4 will have to explain that if she were to be revealed as the traitor.
