What I’m Watching: Killing Eve

Killing Eve: Season 3, Episode 6 “End of Game” (B)

The fact that Nico isn’t dead after being pitchforked is almost worse since now Eve has the guilt of him being permanently injured even if he does recover and being blamed for what happened to him. Eve was smart, as she always is, to realize that it couldn’t have been Villanelle and to promptly following up on the little information she had about Dasha, first by going straight to Carolyn and then traveling to Barcelona to engage her in a formidable game of bowling. Of course that would be the setting for a major confrontation like this one, and it’s crazy just how open Dasha was about her relationship with Villanelle and her readiness to kill her if she so desired. Carolyn and Paul were also freely discussing their conflicted interests, with Konstantin having complicated relationships with both of them. After being startled multiple times in this episode, Konstantin was ready to go, and he seemed pretty shocked to see Irina run her stepfather over before smiling at him as they prepared to make their big exit. I’m intrigued by the idea of Konstantin being the father of Carolyn’s children, something that she didn’t confirm but could easily be true. Villanelle’s new role wasn’t all she hoped for, and after getting stabbed by the man she was in the middle of killing, she’s ready to get out of all this. Before this season ends, let’s get Eve and Villanelle back together so they can tackle their problems with their world together.
