Happy Monday TV fans! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 2, I learned that “being hard on someone is sometimes what they need,” but it doesn’t always help you let go of all of the worry, grief, and regret.
Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.
In last night’s episode, “Management Sucks,” Villanelle moves into her new place and attempts to mentor a new assassin, but she quickly learns that management is not that easy. Meanwhile, Eve and Carolyn attempt to cope in different ways.
My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 3 episode 2 are:
“I have no queries.”
We’re not used to a statement like this from Eve, who is always filled with endless questions. Eve is not coping with Kenny’s death well and refuses to admit that he took his own life. She drowns herself with alcohol and has a fit at the funeral, but it looks like she is not out of the game just yet when she swipes Kenny’s phone to get some answers.
Carolyn also seems to be having some trouble dealing with Kenny’s death as she wonders if they can play some better music. We also meet Carolyn’s daughter, Geraldine, who seems to have a lot of potential.
Plus, I’m always happy to see a Game of Thrones alum.
“You like what you see?”
Meanwhile in Barcelona, Villanelle shows off some fantastic outfits in episode 2 and explores her new home. Seriously, I would love to raid her closet.
It is quite magnificent and checks off all of her boxes…even the water pressure. Villanelle loves to live in style, but we’ll have to see if she is truly ready for her new position.
“I need to know what happened.”
After her outburst, Eve reminds Carolyn that she doesn’t work for her anymore. However, Carolyn reveals that Villanelle is back and working again. Eve tells her that she can’t help, but has this sparked her curiosity? I’m thinking so.
It looks like Eve and Carolyn will team up once again in order to truly get to the bottom of Kenny’s death, but Konstantin is always watching…seriously don’t ever accept a gift from him.
“Anybody can fight. It takes a special person to kill.”
Villanelle is tasked with guiding a young potential assassin named Felix, but quickly discovers that management is far from easy. Villanelle hilariously asks him if he is ten years old and mocks his answers, which really gave me that Villanelle dark humor I have been craving.
Villanelle reminds Felix that she’s “kind of a big deal in this industry” and tries to show him the ropes as they show up for their first assignment…dressed as clowns.
Villanelle keeps the laughs coming and perhaps she has a fallback career after all in her future. After Felix gets a little bit messy with the job, Villanelle takes him out of the picture for good. I guess killing isn’t for everyone…
“That’s not possible…”
At the end of the episode, Konstantin shows up and reveals that he is still working for The Twelve. He tells Villanelle that Eve is still alive, which has clearly unleashed something within her.
We know that both Eve and Villanelle have been saying that they have dealt with what happened, but I’m not sure that either of them are in control right now and I can’t wait to see what happens when they finally come face to face with one another again.
Overall, I thought that episode 2 bounced back with flair and provided us with the dark humor we know and love. Villanelle was beyond fantastic and I hope that we can continue the episodes at this pace.
