Take Three: Killing Eve

Killing Eve: Season 1, Episode 3 “Don’t I Know You?” (B+)

Okay, now we’re getting somewhere. Villanelle’s latest kill landed right on the radar of Eve’s task force, but it caught everyone by surprise that she gave Eve’s name as her own as a cover. Though Konstantin arrived later to tell her that Eve was in town looking into her, Villanelle didn’t want to wait, and she went right after Eve to find out as much as possible about her. Kudos to Bill for stepping in and realizing that something was up, pulling Villanelle back from getting on the train to follow her. Unfortunately, his bravery resulted in Villanelle getting the upper hand and stabbing him many times in the club. I’m shocked to see that a main character like this was killed off so quickly, though I suppose it’s possible that he’ll miraculously survive his wounds. Either way, what’s been established is that Villanelle will do whatever she can to protect herself, even if she’s going to extraordinary lengths to get to know Eve instead of just killing her in the first place. It’s not clear what her next step is going to be, and also what Eve will be able to do since she’s now alone in a foreign city without any backup or anyone who can acknowledge that she’s hunting this killer. Having her husband host a dinner party while all this was happening just shows how much she’s on her own. I’m very eager to see what comes next, though I’m also curious how it can keep going unless Eve manages to gain some serious advantage or Villanelle is told by Konstantin that she isn’t allowed to kill her.
