Killing Eve’s episode this past Sunday was more about tying Villanelle’s past to her present. After completing a hit for Konstantin, our favorite assassin is given the location of her mother and brother and sets off to visit them. Here are five takeaways from the episode.
3. Surprised –
As much as I thought that watch Villanelle at her hometown fair would be lame, it ended one of the most entertaining sequences of the season.
4. Imagine –
Imagine wanting the feeling of being in a family so bad that you try to fit in with the oddest collection of people ever. What was striking was that as much as she wanted to be with this group, Villanelle never felt truly comfortable.
3. Regression –
She so desperately wanted her mother’s love and attention that she regressed at the sight of her. She wanted to feel like a kid once more.
2. This scene –
Seeing Villanelle just shattered by this rejection and knowing full well that she won’t get a taste of her missed childhood was heartbreaking.
1. This moment –
This is one of the top 3 scenes anyone will see on television this year. Seeing Villanelle realize what drove her father away, and she needed to do with a sense of resignation was extraordinary to watch.
