Not as much as a clear arc moving the story forward, compared to Vol 2, more like filling in some of the pieces of the backstory and setting big things up for Vol 4. But in a good way! Really liked Asher Cobb, LOVED that there was more focus on Becky and less on Drake. It looks like we may finally get the Becky-kicks-total-ass storyline in Vol 4 that I've been hoping for since the beginning. The Gord Cantrell storyline about his home and family and the hints about how the guns came to be was not as successful to me, there was a lot there and it felt a little crammed. Minor quibble though, still love this series more than anything.
