What I’m Watching: Killing Eve

Killing Eve: Season 4, Episode 3 “A Rainbow in Beige Boots” (B+)

Well, this didn’t play out quite how I had expected. It felt like things were building towards Eve becoming more like Villanelle or the two of them eventually becoming a couple given that surprising kiss they shared on the bus and the fact that they have more in common than not. But, after Villanelle showed up invited and Eve told her to leave, and then she nearly choked Martin out after holding him hostage for some therapy, Eve did do exactly what she should have done the first time they met. If I remember correctly, Villanelle has been behind bars before, but she doesn’t have the same connections this time to quickly get her released. I know that this show wouldn’t conclude with one of its two main characters locked up over the course of its final episodes, but the focus is shifting a lot more to Hélène and her two new protégés who are volunteering themselves up. Pam stabbed her brother even though Hélène told her she wasn’t ready, and now it looks like Konstantin is going to be on tap to train her, which should be entertaining since he is one of the funniest parts of this offbeat show. Eve is also eager to be in on what she’s doing, and she’s definitely risking Yusuf’s life given that the two of them are close and those in her orbit have never fared well. Carolyn is off on her own adventures, but I’m sure she’ll cross paths with her old colleagues again soon.
