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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

3

“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!
