No offense to the many people outside the US that post here, but Showtime subscribers in America are not just a "certain amount of people", it's the vast majority of Showtime's audience. And it's 2017, people will find a way to see them if they want to and the discussion online in the ensuing week, both in media and places like this, will be about the first four hours.
I don't know about the arc thing, but I definitely think there's a strong possibility that 4 ends with a cliffhanger. Otherwise it seems a bit arbitrary to put out 3 AND 4 instead of just 3.
And then they're officially "airing" them together the following Sunday for everyone, so I think it's safe to say that at least 3 and 4 belong together, for whatever reason.
