It's going to be a bit of a wait before we find out how Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) and Letitia Dryden's (Joanne Kelly) affair pans out in 'City on a Hill' Season 3. The hit Showtime series will be on a week's hiatus and will not be airing on August 21 at its usual time slot. That's a bummer considering how the show picked up steam on the third episode and promised to be another humdinger of a season.

It's their steamy affair that gains focus in episode 3 that otherwise does enough to show where every character is at with their respective issues. Jenny (Jill Hennessey) is a bag of mixed emotions. She has to deal with her daughter Benedetta's absence after the teen gets through to college, and also the assault charges from her father after she socks him in the face. An event from Sioban's (Lauren E Banks) past comes back to haunt her after her friend dies leaving her next of kin. Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) deals with his father's death the way he should.

Why is 'City on a Hill' not airing today?

Per a report by Carter Matt, Showtime is airing a movie premiere instead of the 90s Boston crime drama. The movie is very similar to what Starz did with 'P-Valley'. The official Showtime site lists 'Jackass Forever' to air instead. The 2022 comedy flick directed and produced by Jeff Tremaine will air at 9 pm ET and is followed by an episode of 'Flatbush Misdemeanors'. For those keen to catch the movie, the official synopsis reads, "Celebrate the joy of a perfectly executed shot to the groin as Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, and the rest of the gang return for another round of hilarious, wildly absurd, and often dangerous displays of stunts and comedy."

What to expect from ''City on a Hill' Season 3 Episode 4'?

Showtime's official synopsis reads, "As Jackie continues his fling with Letitia Dryden, Jenny sets out to get her husband reinstated in the FBI. The pressure on Decourcy mounts when a colleague competing for the position of DA lands a conviction. Caysen testifies at the federal trial of Tony Suferin and is blindsided by the consequences. A threatening interaction offers Siobhan a sense of what exactly she is up against in her fight for the Mendoza family." The episode is directed by Marshall Tyler and based on a script by Tamara Carter.

From the logline, it looks like Rohr and Letitia will have their sordid affair even as his wife, Jenny (Jill Hennessy) looks to get his life back on track. With the season approaching its midway stage, there's that possibility that Rohr might not really be oblivious to his employer's shady activities anymore, but might continue to turn a blind eye so he could continue raking in the moolah. The season will continue to shed light on Lauren E Banks' Siobhan as she grapples with her trauma and the case against the construction giant.
