Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 3: “The Hungry Caterpillar”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 3 on AMC, I realized that there’s always an effective way to get back at someone and Villanelle is the queen of this.  If your new handler is not so nice, why not go on a shopping spree on him?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Hungry Caterpillar,” Villanelle claims that she is not jealous of the new female assassin with the clever nickname, “Ghost,” but she starts to have second thoughts when she realizes she may have Eve’s undivided attention.  Meanwhile, Eve tries to show her support for Niko by attending one of his school functions, but has trouble leaving the job behind her for the night.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 3 are:

“Hate is something she understands.”

After the shocking twist in last week’s episode, Eve has a conversation with Konstantin.  Konstantin asks Eve:  “You think she loves you?  Then make her hate you…hate is something she understands.  Look what happens to those she loves.”  This clearly hits home with Eve and she does begin to really contemplate her own feelings and thoughts, but I don’t think it has tamed the obsession going on between her and Villanelle just yet.  Konstantin makes a valid point; however, and he understands what it means to have Villanelle’s distorted affection, as he points out that she did try to kill him.

Is Eve any different from the others Villanelle has loved or will she end up in the same predicament?  I’m not sure, but it seems like Eve really challenges Villanelle, which may not be something she is used to.  Villanelle likes to maintain control, but I think that deep down she truly wants to be surprised, so that she can tap into some hidden feelings of her own and know what it feels like to truly be alive.

“Uh oh…are you trying to make me jealous?”

Villanelle’s new handler, Raymond, tells her about the new female assassin, “Ghost,” and also explains that she doesn’t work for them just yet.  So who does Ghost work for and what does she want?  We know that Villanelle loves to hog the spotlight and is not a fan of discrete kills, but will this throw her off her game now that she knows that Eve is involved?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m looking forward to meeting Ghost face-to-face.

“Do you have cats?  Maybe you should just get another one…”

Eve puts on her gorgeous new blue dress and meets Niko at his school function, but is not too thrilled with the company he is keeping, as she notices another co-worker flirting with him.  Villanelle also makes an appearance at the school function with an adorable new disguise that sort of reminded me of Velma from Scooby Doo if she suddenly found her inner Daphne.  Even though Eve does not see Villanelle, she is pretty much everywhere.  Eve panics when she sees the apple in Niko’s classroom and is immediately on edge.

Villanelle also takes some quality time with the co-worker crushing on Niko and gives her some life lessons about getting more cats.  Eve pulls the fire alarm to get outside, but she doesn’t notice Villanelle right behind her, who slips her a clue.  Eve is always so meticulous and contemplative about everything, but it appears that she may be slightly off her game because of Villanelle’s impact on her.  Will she be able to get it together?  Let’s hope so!

“I’m going to offer you something she won’t…”

Later on, Eve approaches Konstantin behind Carolyn’s back and offers to tell him where his family is if he tells her what she wants to know.  This is a dangerous play here, as Eve goes against Carolyn, which may have severe consequences at her job.  However, Eve is thinking in the moment and desperately wants to find Villanelle and also discover more information on The Twelve.  Eve recognizes that the elevator death is not Villanelle’s usual style, but the lipstick clue she left says otherwise.

Carolyn is not too happy with Eve’s play here, as it ultimately backfires, but will Eve really be able to stick to her side from now on?  At the end of the episode, Eve begins to put the lipstick on and cuts her lip, realizing that Villanelle hid a blade underneath.  What does this mean for Eve?  It looks like Villanelle is not playing sweet and nice with her anymore, but that doesn’t mean that her obsession is gone.  However, it may have just reached a new level now, becoming that much more dangerous.  Watch out, Eve!

“This is a terrible hug.”

Konstantin comes for Villanelle and she begins running toward him.  However, instead of trying to kill him, she embraces him with a hug and hilariously asks:  “You’re not still mad about that are you?”  Villanelle may have tried to kill Konstantin, but he seems to ultimately need her.  He offers her a partnership and gets Villanelle out of there right before Eve barges into the room.  There are so many missed encounters in this episode between Eve and Villanelle, but I’m intrigued to find out what will finally happen when they come face-to-face with one another.

As Villanelle drives off with Konstantin, she hilariously begins singing obnoxiously to “Listen To Your Heart” by Roxette, which you can listen to here!  Villanelle has many talents, but I’m not sure that singing is one of them, but this moment just made me adore Villanelle that much more.  What will she do next now that she is working with Konstantin?  Stay tuned!
