It’s been so long since the last time Killing Eve aired a new episode that I barely remember all the little espionage subplots going on. But in the grand scheme of things, that’s not important: the show’s really about a homicidal nut in glamorous clothes and the M16 agent obsessed with her (whether she admits it or not). The series finally returns at the end of this month to wrap up the whole story.
As the show has gone on, and they’re repeatedly crossed paths, Villanelle and Eve have slowly grown an influence over each other: V started to regret her little habit (that of killing people all the time) while Eve began to develop a taste for violence…that could lead to a taste for murder. In the trailer scenes below, Villanelle claims to be a fully reformed woman, even though “I killed two people last night after I tried really hard not to.”
I’ve always wondered if Eve is going to die in the final episode, fulfilling the title of the series. If she doesn’t, the title makes no sense. But if she does, it would simply be a repeat of how Season 2 ended (she survived the bullet, thanks to network renewal). Eve can’t shoot V because that was how Season ONE ended. But I also can’t see their relationship ending in anything but tragedy, so I doubt they’ll be skipping into the sunset arm-in-arm either. I have no idea how this is going to end. Let’s find out together!
Now for the annoying part: AMC used to show each season simultaneously with BBC America, and this was good, because not as many people had the latter channel. This time, only BBC America is broadcasting it and AMC is withholding it for their AMC+ streaming service no one uses. It’s possible AMC could still air it at some point, but there are no announced plans to do so. You better hope BBC America is in your cable package, if you even still subscribe to one. The first episode of Season 4 appears February 27.
