Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 3 episode 8: “Are You Leading or Am I?”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 8, I learned that “we all have monsters inside of us. It’s just that most people manage to keep theirs hidden.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s season finale episode, “Are You Leading or Am I?” Villaneve takes center stage to bring us some passionate and real moments. Truths are revealed as Carolyn and Konstantin also face off.

My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 3 episode 8 are:

5

“If Villanelle has retired, what’s left?”

In the beginning of the episode, Villanelle approaches Carolyn to accept her past job offer. She says that she is looking for a new challenge and wants to try something besides killing. You know, like spy stuff!

I have to say that Villanelle would make a great spy, but Carolyn is not so convinced that she needs her on the team anymore. Villanelle is trying to prove that she can change, but perhaps she needs to first believe it herself before she tackles a new path in life.

4

“I want to feel like that.”

We got plenty of Villaneve moments during the season finale and I have to say that the dance between them was truly amazing. Even though dancing is not really their thing, both Villanelle and Eve have been dancing their own version of a tango (or maybe really a Paso Doble) for quite some time now, so it was brilliant to see them actually dance together.

The tension and passion between them is beyond intense, but their moment in the spotlight is interrupted when another assassin shows up to bring Villanelle in for questioning.

3

“You don’t know what’s good for you.”

That may be true, as Villanelle tells Eve to collect Konstantin’s money while she deals with the other assassin. Eve needs to brush up on her undercover skills, but let’s not forget that she’s “not a very nice lady.”

Meanwhile, Villanelle deals with her competition and allows an oncoming train to do her dirty work.

Konstantin decides to check himself out of the hospital after eliminating Dasha for good and wants Eve to hand over the collection. Eve is not really buying it and Villanelle gets involved as well to make things even more complicated.

2

“This was inevitable.”

Meanwhile, Carolyn tells her daughter to leave while also coming across some new footage of Kenny. After learning that Konstantin was there on the day he died, Carolyn decides to take matters into her own hands.

We get an awkward meet up between Carolyn, Konstantin, Villanelle, Eve, and Paul, as Carolyn confronts Konstantin.

Konstantin fills in the blanks and explains that Kenny was getting too close to The Twelve, which is what we suspected. He told Kenny that he needed to come and work for The Twelve to try and protect him, but Kenny got upset and fell off the building in front of Konstantin.

Carolyn holds a gun up toward Konstantin as he begs for Villanelle to help him, but everyone seems to be frozen in place while this plays out. Carolyn decides to ultimately shoot Paul rather than Konstantin and tells him to leave before she changes her mind. It’s clear that Carolyn still has unresolved feelings for Konstantin, which spared his life, but she needed some kind of justice for her son’s murder.

Carolyn confesses that she is the one responsible, but Eve also reminds her that she just shot another connection to The Twelve. Eve is told by both Carolyn and Villanelle that “one cannot destroy The Twelve,” which seems to fuel Eve even more.

Will she be able to truly let things go? I’m not so sure, but we certainly get a lot of reveals during this finale.

1

“I just see your face over and over again…”

Toward the very end of the episode, Villanelle and Eve take a moment to have a real and honest conversation. Villanelle reminds Eve that she was never like everyone else and asks her about her future. Eve finally lets her guard down completely and explains that she just sees Villanelle’s face.

Villanelle asks her if she ruined her life and also asks her if she thinks that she is a monster. Villanelle doesn’t want to kill anymore, but she also seems just as lost as Eve. In the end, she tells Eve that they both need to turn around and walk away, leaving a space between them.

However, at the very end, they both turn around and look at each other, suggesting that even if they walk down a new path, their lives will be intertwined somewhat. In each season finale, we get some kind of space between them. In season one, Eve stabbed Villanelle and in season two, Villanelle evened the score and shot Eve.

In the season 3 finale, we still get this space between them, but it now seems like their is this understanding between them. They both recognize that they need to discover what to do next in their lives, but will they truly be able to move forward without looking back?

I’m not so sure. Either way, I thought this was a well done season finale and I can’t wait for season 4, which has already been confirmed!

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 3 episode 6: “End of Game”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 6, I learned that even when you get everything you think you want, sometimes it’s not enough.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “End of Game,” Villanelle gets promoted, but she starts to realize that she may be destined for a new path. Meanwhile, Eve attempts to get justice for Niko, which leads to an intense game of bowling.

My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 3 episode 6 are:

5

“Piss off forever.”

Surprise! Niko is actually alive after being brutally stabbed by a pitchfork. In the beginning of the episode, Eve visits him in the hospital. Niko is on a ventilator and can’t speak yet, but he still gets his message across to Eve.

Eve is still determined to find out who is behind this and doesn’t think that Villanelle did it, even though the evidence is pointing in her direction.

I have to hand it to Eve. She sees through it all, but has she met her match with Dasha?

4

“To Villanelle, the Keeper!”

Villanelle meets Elena, who informs her that she has been promoted to Keeper, which is exactly what Villanelle wanted. Only she quickly discovers that the new job title is pretty much the same thing with better perks.

Killing Eve 3 6 2 BBC America 2

Villanelle is disappointed and starts to truly wonder about what more she wants. It’s clear that Villanelle’s family visit had a major impact on her, but maybe she’s finally ready to start over fresh.

3

“I love hockey!”

There’s always one fan in the stands who is just overly loud and obnoxious and Villanelle decides to embrace her new love for sports by crashing Konstantin’s daughter’s hockey game. Villanelle hilariously explains that you can’t watch sports without a hot dog, but Konstantin gets the conversation back on track and tells Villanelle that she was not supposed to kill her mother.

Konstantin wanted Villanelle to put her past behind her, but it looks like he’s ready to run away far from The Twelve…to Cuba?

Irina and Villanelle have a nice little chat about it, but can Villanelle really leave Eve behind?

2

“You can’t beat us.”

After getting some intel on Dasha from Carolyn, Eve is determined to track her down to get some answers. Carolyn warns Eve that Dasha is extremely dangerous, but there’s no stopping Eve when her mind is made up.

After taking out some of her frustration on a vending machine, Eve decides to crash Dasha’s bowling game and actually shows off some impressive skills. Go Eve!

Killing Eve 3 6 4 BBC America 4

Dasha reminds Eve that she cannot win at this game, suggesting that The Twelve will always come out on top, but we’ll have to see how this plays out.

1

“I don’t want to do this anymore.”

Villanelle heads off to execute her latest kill and poses as a hair stylist with lots of flair. I’m not sure that I would want Villanelle behind me with a pair of scissors, but things get a bit sloppy when her target manages to stab her before she can kill him.

Killing Eve 3
Images courtesy of BBC America

Villanelle is always so precise and mechanical with her kills. It’s really more of an art form for her, which shows that she is clearly shaken up by everything. At the end of the episode, Villanelle reveals that she doesn’t want to do this anymore, but I’m not sure that The Twelve will accept no as an answer.

Meanwhile, we may have a new female assassin in town. Konstantin’s daughter, Irina, may have learned a thing or two from Villanelle after all and decides to run over her mother’s new overly nice boyfriend in front of him. Irina has been trying to get her father’s attention for a while and she recognizes that he cares for Villanelle, so is this a cry for attention or does she really have the killer instinct?

We also get a conversation between Carolyn and Konstantin where Kenny supposedly asked him if he was his father. We don’t get a concrete answer on this, but is this the reason he was killed or is there more to the story?

We have only two episodes left this season! Will we get another meet up between Villaneve or are they destined to go their separate ways? 

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 3 episode 4: “Still Got It”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 4, I learned that “it’s all about choices.” Sometimes you think you are in control of your own destiny, but when other powers are at work, that feeling of helplessness becomes inevitable.

Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Still Got It,” it’s Eve’s birthday and Villanelle has figured out the perfect way to surprise her. Meanwhile, another character’s fate is determined after The Twelve plots to get between Villaneve.

My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 3 episode 4 are:

5

“Happy Birthday, Eve.”

Eve is completely obsessed with finding out more about Kenny’s murder and Villanelle’s new involvement, but it is her special day. Villanelle remembers her birthday and sends her a cake bus that doesn’t exactly sit well with Eve.

Killing Eve Season 3 episode 4 1 BBC America

Eve throws the cake over the side of a building in frustration, revealing that she hasn’t really dealt with their latest encounter. 

First, the stuffed animal and now the cake? Come on, Eve! Seriously, how cute is that cake? It’s the thought that counts…

4

“So I’m getting promoted?”

Villanelle jams out while baking a cake, but the end result doesn’t turn out so well. Dasha comes to visit her and asks her about what happened with Eve. Villanelle tries to play it cool, but is beyond excited when Dasha implies that she may be getting a new assignment or a promotion.

Dasha tells Villanelle to stay put and she’s happy to bring her killer skills to a shopping spree, but can Villanelle really stay in one place that long?

3

“I need you to do something for me…”

After having some fun testing Konstatin’s patience, he reveals that he has found Villanelle’s family, but he needs her to do something for him first.

Konstantin constantly puts his own daughter on hold during this episode as does Carolyn. We know that their involvement in The Twelve takes priority, but what happens when they lose everyone they care about in the process?

2

“Try again…”

Villanelle’s latest hit takes place in a garden, but her hiccups get in the way. After her target tries to scare her to get rid of her hiccups, this leads to an interesting game between the two of them and it’s clear that Villanelle is having a lot of fun.

Villanelle strangles the poor woman with a hose, but sadly her hiccups are still present…

1

“Drive a wedge between them…”

It may have seemed slightly out of place for Niko to get some screen time in the beginning of the episode, which should have been our first clue that something was very wrong here. We learn that Dasha has followed Niko to Poland, swiping his phone so that she can lure Eve to him.

After being instructed by a representative from The Twelve to get Villanelle back on track by driving a wedge between her and Eve, Dasha takes it upon herself to frame Villanelle.

Eve arrives, thinking that Niko has agreed to talk things out with her, but Dasha is waiting with a pitchfork, stabbing poor Niko before Eve has the chance to say much of anything.

She leaves a note on his body, “Still Got It,” framing Villanelle. Sorry Baby…

Eve is completely shattered and in shock, as she watches poor Niko bleed out.

After losing Kenny, we have now lost another main character. I can’t say that I am completely surprised since Niko’s story has really played out, but I guess it was too much to ask to allow him to have a peaceful life as a baker in Poland. Sorry, Niko.

Now that these chess pieces have been strategically moved into place, what’s next? How will Eve react? What will Villanelle do when she finds out that she is being framed?

It looks like Villanelle will also be reunited with her family in next week’s episode. It will be interesting to see how they react to her return. I can’t wait for that!

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 3 episode 3: “Meetings Have Biscuits”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 3, I learned that when you wear power, you want to keep it, and the only way to do that is with knowledge.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Meetings Have Biscuits,” Villanelle gets in touch with her motherly instincts. Meanwhile, Eve continues to try and get to the bottom of Kenny’s murder while Carolyn gets a lead on an asset of The Twelve.

My top 5 moments from Killing Eve season 3 episode 3 are:

5

“I’m just having some fun.”

After her most recent killing spree, Villanelle is intrigued by a baby left behind. In fact, she is so intrigued that she decides to take the baby to lunch. Only that baby better stop crying because Villanelle doesn’t like it.

Killing Eve 3 3 BBC America

It looks like Villanelle has made a tiny new friend, but Dasha is not amused and decides to put the baby in a trash can. Luckily, it is revealed later on the news that the baby is all right, but perhaps Villanelle should hold off on motherhood for a little while…

4

“This place is psychopathic…”

The moment I have been waiting for finally arrived! Villanelle finds herself walking through a shop filled with stuffed animals. She is clearly overwhelmed by all the cuteness stuffed with fluff, but decides to try out making her very own talking toy.

Killing Eve 3 3 1 BBC America

Her recordings were certainly unique as she starts off her first attempt with, “I should have shot you in the head.” 

Villanelle begins several recordings about her mixed feelings on Eve and at least she has a new active listener. That bear was certainly made with care and Villanelle even sports her very own teddy bear T-shirt later on with pride.

3

“Hi Eve!”

Villanelle doesn’t exactly get the reaction she was looking for when she shows up in London and surprises Eve on the bus. Eve begins screaming and we get this entertaining fight between the two of them.

Villanelle tries to explain that she is not there for her, but Villaneve fans do get this passionate kiss between the two of them before Eve knocks her over the head.

After Eve gets over the shock of everything, she realizes that Villanelle is going to try and assassinate someone else and immediately tries to warn Carolyn.

Killing Eve 3 3 2 BBC America

Only we find out that the target was actually the boring accountant from The Twelve. Now that Villanelle is back in town, the drama will certainly continue, but I hope that we can continue to get some more answers about The Twelve and Kenny’s murder as well.

2

“I want to find my family.”

Later in the episode, we get this laugh out loud hysterical moment when Konstantin comes home and finds Villanelle hiding in his bed. She certainly gets quite the scare out of him and I almost fell off my couch from laughing so hard. Seriously, she’s the best.

Villanelle reveals that she killed the accountant and then starts talking about wanting to find her own family. I’m glad that we are going to finally explore Villanelle’s roots and past. It’s about time!

1

“Admit it, Eve. You wish I was here.”

At the very end of the episode, Eve finds the stuffed animal that Villanelle made with love, care and obsession. Eve is not amused and rips out the heart recording. I was not really pleased with Eve ripping open the stuffed animal, but it’s safe to say that the obsession is back on.

Killing Eve 3 3 3 BBC America

Perhaps Eve should have just smelled Villanelle like she asked. After all, she put quite a lot of effort into her new power scent, but has anything actually changed between these two? We’ll have to wait and see, but I just don’t want to lose the independent Villanelle that I have been loving so much.

Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 4/25/20 on TV goes to…

Jodie Comer as Villanelle on BBC America’s Killing Eve.

Villanelle is back and better than ever! 

I don’t know about you, but I have been counting the days until Villanelle’s return. Jodie Comer is perfection and I was so excited to see her channel that dark Villanelle humor in season 3, episode 2. Send in the clowns!

Please note some spoilers are ahead.

From her killer fashion to her eccentric characters, Jodie Comer pours her heart and soul into this role and Villanelle is the most unique and interesting character on television. It’s no surprise that Comer won the Emmy award last year and she should just get this award automatically because she brings such a fresh and unique take to the role.

Killing Eve BBC America 3 2 3

It’s not easy playing a female assassin and somehow Jodie Comer makes you actually root for Villanelle. Sure, she is committing some pretty violent and brutal crimes along the way, but she’s also trying to find her own path and identity, which gives her character so many layers.

Previously, we have seen glimmers of Villanelle’s humanity shining through, but her love/obsession with Eve took up most of her time. Villanelle is finally trying to branch out and discover something that makes her happy, even exploring management, which is no easy task.

Killing Eve BBC America 3 2

However, now that she has discovered that Eve is alive, that obsession may return, but I’m confident that Villanelle will continue to surprise and shock us. The dynamic between these two is always fantastic, but Villanelle has grown into such a fantastic character on her own and I’m really hoping that we can finally devote some more time to her actual development.

Killing Eve BBC America 3 2 2
Images courtesy of BBC America

What happened in her childhood? How did she first become an assassin?

I have endless questions and I’m really hoping that we can explore some more layers behind Villanelle while enjoying some outrageous and hilarious moments with her.

What’s next for Villanelle? Well, she now has to deal with Eve being alive while trying out her new role for The Twelve. A life/work balance can be difficult to manage, but when you throw killing in there as well, all bets are off. I’m looking forward to more hilarious moments from Villanelle and the teaser for the stuffed animal scene looks like it can be a lot of fun.

As Villanelle reminded Felix, she’s kind of a big deal in this business, but anybody can fight…“it takes a special kind of person to kill.” Villanelle is definitely a special kind of person, but let’s hope that we can find out what really makes her tick and allow her to shine even more for us.

Either way, I am so beyond excited that Jomie Comer is back in this role and I can’t wait to see what she does next! You can never really guess with her…

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Killing Eve” season 3 episode 1: “You’re Destined for Greatness”

Happy Monday TV fans! The wait is over and our favorite assassin is back! After watching BBC America’s Killing Eve season 3 episode 1 season premiere on AMC, I learned that “power is there for the taking. You just have to be smart about how.”

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Slowly Slowly Catchy Monkey,” we catch up with Villanelle after that major cliffhanger in season 2. Meanwhile, Eve tries to pick up the pieces of her own life before a shocking death snaps her out of her temporary trance.

My top 5 moments from the Killing Eve season 3 episode 1 season premiere are:

5

“I am so much happier now that she’s dead.”

Are you though, Villanelle? We catch up with Villanelle at her wedding. Villanelle is marrying a wealthy woman and makes it a point to discuss her many assets during her wedding speech.

Killing Eve AMC 1

She also brings up her ex, but the celebration is cut short when Villanelle’s old mentor, Dasha shows up to invite her back to work.

I’m not sure our girl Villanelle is the settling type, but I’m glad to see that she is having some fun.

4

“I want to be a keeper.”

It’s good to have goals as an assassin and we learn that Villanelle apparently wants to be a “keeper.” A keeper is a rank within “The Twelve” secret organization and we know that it is higher than Konstantin’s rank, but Dasha thinks that perhaps Villanelle will work her way up to this.

So, what do we know about Villanelle’s mentor? Well, we get a flashback of her in the very beginning of the episode in Moscow 1974 and learn why gymnastics can be deadly.

It’s clear that she has a past with Villanelle and I’m hoping that her presence on the show will finally give us a chance to explore Villanelle’s own past and childhood, which I’m very interested to learn more about.

Can Dasha’s intentions be trusted now? Probably not, but it also looks like we will be jumping into “The Twelve” plot more and it’s about time.

3

“You can hide from it but it won’t hide from you.”

Meanwhile, Eve is alive and well, but she has quite the scar after being shot by Villanelle. Eve is now working in a Korean restaurant kitchen and she has definitely lost her spark.

Killing Eve AMC 2

I’m very much used to the neurotic Eve who likes to talk things out, but this quiet and forlorn Eve is quite jarring.

It looks like she needs a wake-up call and she’s about to get one…

2

“I’m totally done with her.”

I’m not sure that Eve and Villanelle can every truly be done with each other, but it will be interesting to see how Villanelle reacts when she finds out that Eve is actually alive. Eve confides in Kenny that she’s over her, but she also takes some time to chat with Niko.

It looks like their marriage is over, but I guess we will still get some screen time for him.

1

“Where are you?”

The ending of the season premiere presented us with quite a shock as one of our recurring characters bites the dust. Poor Kenny is pushed out a window and Eve discovers his body. I always liked Kenny and it’s a shame about his death, but it looks like this will be what snaps Eve back to reality.

Killing Eve AMC 3
Images courtesy of BBC America

Why was Kenny killed? Does it have to do with Carolyn? 

We’ll have to wait to get some answers, but it looks like Eve is back in action.

So, I had some issues with the season premiere. I am a huge fan of the series and I absolutely loved season 1 and thought that season 2 was quite entertaining as well. However, the opening of season 3 felt different.

I know that we have some different writers now, but the show almost seemed fizzled out. It felt like we were catching up with some of our favorite characters as they tried to insert themselves back into a new plot. The pacing was slow and I found myself tuning out, which I have never done previously.

I don’t want this show to lose its charm and humor because that’s what makes it unique. We need the dynamic between Eve and Villanelle, but we also need all of the tiny details in between that make this show so magnetic.

I’m remaining hopeful but I really need this show to breathe some much needed life back into it so I can enjoy it again. Our Villanelle deserves it!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Killing Eve in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

My Ship of the week ending 6/1/19 on TV goes to…

Villanelle and Eve on Killing Eve, better known as Villaneve!  The tension between these two has been building for two seasons now and there is so much untapped desire swirling around, begging to come out, but will Villaneve fans ever get the moment they have been waiting for?  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Eve’s interest in tracking down Villanelle turned into an obsession in season one, but in season two, she has been discovering her darker side.  The dynamic between these two amazing characters shifted and it was interesting to see Villanelle searching for a true connection and something human, while Eve has been dancing with the devil, wondering if she has that killer instinct that comes so naturally to Villanelle.

One of my favorite moments for Villaneve in season one is when Villanelle invites herself over for dinner and Eve fears that she is initially there to kill her.  Villanelle slams her against the refrigerator and asks her if she is wearing her perfume, which escalated this game of cat and mouse into something more seductive, surprising Eve.  These two continued to share an infatuation, but Eve sparked something even greater by stabbing Villanelle in the season one finale.  You would think Villanelle would want to kill her, but she is excited by this action, recognizing that perhaps her and Eve are actually very much alike and that this proves that she really cares for her.  I mean, I guess flowers and chocolates are no longer necessary here.

During season two, the relationship between Villaneve heats up even more, as these two work together and end up becoming closer because of it.  In the episode prior to the season finale, Villanelle continues to talk to Eve over her earpiece, which prompts Eve to have sex with Hugo, while Villanelle listens in, providing these two with a beyond intimate moment.  In the season finale, Eve kills Raymond to save Villanelle, while Villanelle watches her with pleasure.  Eve has finally reached that dark side she has been exploring and Villanelle thinks that they now have a chance to be together.

Only, nothing is simple for Villaneve, as Eve begins to panic and have second thoughts, realizing that Villanelle essentially manipulated her into killing in front of her, since Villanelle had a gun with her the entire time.  In a heated moment, Villanelle slaps Eve across the face, which was probably one of the steamiest moments I have witnessed on the show.  Shout out goes to @greyhound001 on Twitter, who was amazing enough to remind me of this and I have to say that I agree 100 percent.  There is something so twisted and wrong with Villaneve and yet it works and draws the audience in even more.

Villaneve gif.gif

What’s next for Villaneve?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but we are left with a major cliffhanger in the season two finale and we know that Villanelle always gets what she wants.  Has she gone too far though?  Is there any hope for Villaneve to FINALLY share a kiss?  The suspense is killing me!  I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,
