The third season explores more challenges as Eve is rebuilding her life after Flannel shot her in that period. In those moments, Villanelle appears, but things turn upside down until an old enemy approaches her. In those moments, Caroline is undermined at work differently and Kenny cannot leave his own investigation into one of the sudden issues.
You will know immediately if you're going to persevere with the third series if you enjoy watching Villanelle demolish her own nuptials in a cake-hurling, glass-smashing frenzy. Bad behaviour in divine locations is the point.
The acting remains impeccable, the costumes amaze, the locations offer beauty shots galore. Maybe for some viewers that's enough. But it's tough to get past the unbelievable relationship at the show's core.
What's interesting about Killing Eve is those two characters together - yet repeatedly, the show refuses to put the two lead characters close enough, long enough, to transform each other. The show, like Eve, is a little afraid of what might happen next.
