The third season just recycles the MOTW villains from the previous seasons and stretch out the romance subplot between Marinette and Adrien.
this. the origin story being at the end of the first season very much felt like it was by design.
I got the impression that they made the origin story as their first episode, but it wasn't working out for whatever reason (could've been any number of reasons), so they just skipped it and went straight into the show's episodic (not serial) monster-of-the-week episodes (which are traditionally supposed to be sandwiched between important serialized episodes which bookend the season), and then they dropped a reworked version of the origin story in at the end of the season, where it didn't matter because the position was less important (like, that's where some productions dump clip shows, to stretch out the episode count).
After Big City Greens I will :3
