Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 8: “You’re Mine”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 8 season finale on AMC, I realized that what comes around, goes around.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “You’re Mine,” armed guards from The Twelve show up and threaten Eve’s operation, which puts her life in immediate danger.  Meanwhile, Aaron wants Villanelle to work for him and Raymond comes back looking for revenge.  My top 5 moments from the Killing Eve season 2 episode 8 season finale are:

5

“Gentleman is a very common word.”

In the beginning of the episode, Eve hears a noise outside and is shocked when she discovers that Hugo has been shot.  Villanelle uses the safe word, “gentleman,” and Eve rushes over to her to save the day, leaving a note behind to help poor Hugo, who is left bleeding in the hallway.  When Eve arrives, she discovers that Villanelle appears to be fine and is sitting down for breakfast with Aaron.  Aaron recognizes Eve and Villanelle reveals her Russian accent, which is what truly surprises Aaron.  Villanelle went through some of Aaron’s homemade movies, which are quite disturbing, and he offers her the chance to work for him, telling her that she will never be bored again. 

Villanelle seems tempted by the offer and asks Aaron if he wants her to kill Eve and further asks if he would like to watch.  Of course our girl Villanelle does not disappoint, as she decides to slit Aaron’s throat instead and says, “Then watch this,” while turning him around to face his reflection.  Life or death with Villanelle is never boring, but Eve thinks that they have blown the mission now and realizes that they are in great danger.  She asks Villanelle why she used the safe word and Villanelle hilariously reminds her that “gentleman” is a very common word after all.

“This is not uncomfortable.  This is a setup.”

After convincing Villanelle to come with her, Eve rushes back to the place where she was staying, but Hugo’s body is gone and it looks like the room has been completely cleaned out, as all of the recordings have vanished as well.  Carolyn knocks on the door and Eve suddenly understands that she wanted Aaron dead all along.  Eve feels like a pawn, but Carolyn reminds her that “it was never going to be bloodless.”  Aaron’s data weapon was extremely dangerous and Carolyn did not want to take any chances, but she now leaves Eve with a very important choice, reminding her that she can’t play both sides.

Eve decides to leave and tells Carolyn that she plans on letting Kenny know about everything, but Carolyn turns the tables on Eve and reveals that Kenny was part of the cleanup operation.  It now makes sense why Kenny tried to tell Eve not to go to Rome in the first place.  It looks like Eve is on her own, but can she trust Villanelle to truly have her back now?

3

“What is it about her?”

After Carolyn confronts Eve, Villanelle gets her own visit from Konstantin, who tells her that he is there to save her.  Villanelle tells him that she will not leave Eve behind and Konstantin asks, “What is it about her?”  Villanelle explains that they are the same and they both end up choosing each other after discovering that they were played.  Villanelle reminds Konstantin that she will find him and his family and we know that she is not a fan of being double crossed.  Look out, Konstantin!

2

“You’re such a drama queen!”

When Villanelle goes looking for Eve, she finds Raymond waiting for her instead with an ax and she tells him, “You are the worst!”  Villanelle’s fight with Raymond is entertaining enough, but Raymond actually manages to get her into a choke hold and Eve nervously picks up the ax to help save Villanelle.  Villanelle tells her to do it over and over again and Eve finally strikes him with the ax in the shoulder.

Villanelle continues to struggle and tells Eve that she needs to hit him in the head.  After battling her inner conscience, Eve finally follows through, as Villanelle watches with pleasure, realizing that she has now truly brought Eve over to the dark side with her.  Will this connect them even more or will it drive a wedge between them?  We’re about to find out…

1

“You’re mine!”

After fleeing from the scene, Villanelle tells Eve that they can go to Alaska together and have a normal life.  She tells her that it is going to be amazing, but Eve suddenly realizes that Villanelle had a gun with her the entire time.  She asks Villanelle why she didn’t use the gun on Raymond and now understands that Villanelle wanted her to kill him.  Villanelle tells Eve, “I wanted you to know how it feels,” but Eve begins to walk away from her, not wanting to have any part of this Bonnie and Clyde adventure anymore.  Eve claims that she is no longer afraid because now she is like Villanelle and tries to pull away after the two almost share a kiss.

Eve successfully pulls away and Villanelle tries to tell her that she loves her, but Eve reminds her that she doesn’t understand what love is.  Our girl Villanelle always gets what she wants and tells Eve, “You’re mine,” right before shooting the gun.  We cut to Eve’s body on the ground and it looks like Villanelle has just turned the tables on her.  After all, Eve did stab her pretty brutally in the season one finale, so it only seems fair that Villanelle gets her chance to even the score in the season two finale.  What does this mean for season three?  Will Eve be OK?  Is Villanelle finally done with her?  So many questions and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!  Stay tuned for season three!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 7: “Wide Awake”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 7 on AMC, I found myself singing along with Villanelle to Blondie’s “One Way or Another.” I mean, if you really think about it, she will find a way to get you.  Watch out, Eve!  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Wide Awake,” Villanelle secures her date with Aaron Peel, which leads to an interesting trip to Rome.  Meanwhile, Eve has an important talk with Martin and begins to realize that her obsession is causing her to do things she wouldn’t normally do and Niko finds himself in a very dangerous situation.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 7 are:

5

“I feel things when I’m with you…”

In the beginning of the episode, Eve stops by Villanelle’s place and asks her if she really knows anything about being truthful.  Villanelle tells her that she really doesn’t know, but explains that she does feel something when she is with Eve.  The two women from the end of last week’s episode both make their way out of Villanelle’s bedroom, which makes Eve slightly uneasy.  Villanelle reminds her not to be jealous, but it’s clear that Eve is getting way too close here and she needs to be careful.  Even though Villanelle has these feelings for her, she’s still a dangerous assassin who likes to do things her way.

4

“Do you love Eve?”

While Niko and Gemma are putting some of his things in storage, they get a surprise visit from Villanelle.  Villanelle tells Niko, “You always look annoyed to see me,” but takes it upon herself to keep his snow globe and of course she wants the recipe to his Shepherd’s Pie because Eve loves it.  “Worcestershire sauce…yes!”  Who knew Worcestershire sauce could be so exciting?  Even when tensions are high, Villanelle is still able to break the ice with her offbeat humor.  It’s just one of the many reasons why I adore Villanelle and root for her even though she is a killer.

Villanelle also hilariously points out how annoying Gemma is, but is ready to cut to the chase.  She directly asks Niko if he loves Eve and he says he does.  Only honesty is not always the best policy when it comes to Villanelle, as she tells him that she was “so close to letting him go.”  Villanelle knows that Eve will never forgive her if she hurts Niko, but things don’t look so good for Gemma.  Sorry Gemma!  At the end of the episode, Niko wakes up in the storage unit and discovers Gemma’s lifeless body wrapped in plastic.  We know that Villanelle will do anything to keep Eve to herself, but is Niko prepared to fight for his wife?  I can’t wait to find out!

“So that’s Peel’s weapon.”

Even after throwing a book at Aaron’s face, Villanelle still manages to secure a date with Aaron as “Billie.”  I mean, she is quite charming after all.  Aaron invites Villanelle to Rome, but she explains that she will not sleep with him, which doesn’t seem to bother him at all.  So what is Aaron interested in?  It seems like he is obsessed with maintaining control and he enjoys watching Villanelle eat and dress, but only if it is approved by him.  Aaron has almost an entire wardrobe of gorgeous clothes waiting for her in her room, but he watches her look at them on camera like a creepy stalker.

After Eve manages to slip Villanelle her earpiece, it seems like we are in business, as Villanelle sits in on Aaron’s business dinner.  We learn that his weapon is essentially information, but the kind of information that can be extremely dangerous, as you can type in the name of any person and learn everything about them…including their deepest and darkest secrets. 

2

“You’re the only person in the world I know nothing about…”

After the dinner, Aaron tells Villanelle that he tried to look up information on “Billie” and found nothing, which instantly puts Eve in panic mode.  However, Villanelle remains calm, as she and Aaron find common ground in the fact that they are both essentially a “void.”  Aaron has no interest in truly connecting with others, but Villanelle explains that she does like trying to connect.  She wants to touch and feel, which creates an interesting dynamic between these two.  Even though this is an undercover job for Villanelle, I think it has revealed a lot about her own character, as she begins to explore parts of herself that she has never really tapped into before.

1

“I feel wide awake…”

During the episode, Eve has a talk with Martin and he asks her, “How much of the day do you spend thinking of her?”  Eve reveals that she thinks of Villanelle most of the day, but yet they really don’t have a relationship.  Eve recognizes that she is acting different and she feels unsafe, but somehow wide awake, as if this is her true identity.  Martin tells her that his recommendation for her to be taken off this mission was ignored, but he is telling Eve now for her own safety.  Only it doesn’t seem like she is ready to listen just yet, even though she recognizes how much she is changing.

After Villanelle goes to bed, she keeps the earpiece in and continues talking to Eve, sparking up a heated conversation that leads to Eve sleeping with Hugo.  Eve essentially uses Hugo here, but ends up connecting with Villanelle through this act, as even Hugo recognizes this and tells her, “Thanks for the threesome.”  Eve is playing a dangerous game here and she is allowing her desires to take complete control, throwing reason out the window.  Will she be able to get a hold of herself or is she too far gone, slipping away into Villanelle’s web of dangerous seduction?  Will Villaneve fans finally get the chance to see these two act on their feelings?  Stay tuned for the season finale next week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 2 episode 6: “I Hope You Like Missionary!”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 2 episode 6 on AMC, I learned that you should never mess with Villanelle.  Even if she is not trying to kill you, she will make you pay…oh and never pick up a muffin anywhere near her…ever.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “I Hope You Like Missionary!” Niko confronts Eve about his conversation with Villanelle, which puts more than a strain on their marriage.  Meanwhile, Villanelle shows off her impressive collection of personalities and accents after Eve asks for her help, but ends up revealing some truth behind the real Villanelle.  My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 2 episode 6 are:

5

“Looks like we’re both pretty busy…”

After the intense conversation between Niko and Villanelle in last week’s episode, Niko confronts Eve and asks her, “What do you want from me?”  It’s a fair question especially since Eve has been all over the place lately.  It initially seems like Niko and Eve are all right for now, but Niko changes his mind in the morning and reminds Eve, “but you’re not alone, are you?”  Niko temporarily moves out of the house and stays with Gemma, who is the colleague from his job that clearly has more than a crush on Niko.

Eve stops by and insists on coming in for tea, but she loses it when she begins going through Gemma’s things.  Gemma asks Eve what she is doing and Eve asks her if she is scared, almost like she is trying to channel her own inner Villanelle.  It looks like this may be the end for Niko and Eve and I can’t say that I’m really surprised, but Eve has a lot to work through.  She really needs to discover what she wants for herself before she can move forward in any relationship.

“Who do you want?”

Eve and her team are trying to figure out a way to get close to Aaron Peel so we can learn more about his dealings with The Twelve, but Aaron doesn’t really have many close connections.  The one weak link seems to be his sister, Amber, who is currently in recovery from addiction.  Eve comes up with the idea to enlist Villanelle’s help once again…only her services will not include killing someone.

Villanelle is eager to work with Eve and greets her with a chipper tone when she says, “Hi Partner!”  Villanelle is ready to play the part and shows off her fabulous ideas for her next “character.”  I have to say that I absolutely adored the New York persona, Billie, and her accent was far from annoying.  I’m glad she went with that one and I would love to run into Villanelle in New York!

“The only thing that makes you interesting is me…don’t forget.”

Villanelle tries out her persona, Billie, at an AA meeting, but the group sees right through her lies, explaining that she is throwing a self-pity party for herself and their group is more about honesty.  Eve is initially frustrated by this because Villanelle’s story was inspired by Eve’s life and goes off on her as a result, but Villanelle gently reminds her that she doesn’t like her that much and she shouldn’t forget that she is the one making her life interesting right now.  Villanelle may have an obsession with Eve, but she likes to do things her way and perhaps she is always the one in charge, so Eve better remember that.  Even though Villanelle is “working” for Eve, she may have her own agenda.

2

“I don’t feel anything…”

When Villanelle returns to her next AA meeting, she is ready to reveal some truths about herself.  Villanelle explains:  “Most days I feel nothing…I don’t feel anything…it’s so boring.”  She further explains that she just tries to find ways to feel something.  This was a huge moment for Villanelle, as she finally lets her walls down, revealing that she is not an empty shell.  Villanelle has been trying to tap into her humanity for a while now and this moment allowed us to truly see that.

I thought Jodie Comer’s performance here was fantastic and I was very moved by her revelations.  Aaron’s sister, Amber, is impressed as well and it seems like these two are going to begin bonding according to plan, but Amber’s sponsor continues to get in the way.  Even though Villanelle shows off a softer side of herself, she is still an assassin and she pushes the sponsor in front of a moving vehicle in front of Eve.  Seriously, don’t get in her way.

1

“You’re a bully…there’s only one way to communicate with a bully.”

Villanelle is invited over to dinner at Amber’s house and she gets to interact with Aaron Peel.  She has Eve and Konstantin in her ear the whole time, which is distracting, as Villanelle decides to take the ear piece out and do things her way.  Billie’s cover story includes her having two degrees in philosophy, but it’s safe to say that Villanelle has not really done her homework.  Aaron begins to question her repeatedly, but Villanelle does not waver.

Villanelle faces Aaron and tells him that he is a bully and the only way to communicate with him is to…strike him in the face with the book he tossed on her lap.  Go Villanelle!  I have to say that I LOVED this moment, as I cannot stand bullies myself and Villanelle really put him in his place.  Even though she may have just blown the mission, Villanelle proves that she is her own boss and we later see her following a pair of young women who have piqued her interest.  I’m not really sure what she has in store for them, but perhaps she has found a new obsession?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like Eve’s hold over Villanelle may be fading.  How will she handle it though?  Stay tuned!
