‘Killing Eve’ Season 2 Finale: Ep Sally Woodward Gentle Talks Shocking Cliffhanger, Plans For Season 3

‘Killing Eve’ Season 2 Finale: Ep Sally Woodward Gentle Talks Shocking Cliffhanger, Plans For Season 3
Spoiler Alert: This article includes details about the season 2 finale of Killing Eve. It’s no surprise that the season 2 finale of Killing Eve ended with lots of bloody twists and turns, but there is one particular maybe-death that will have audiences gasping and clutching their pearls for dear life.

In the final scene of BBC America’s acclaimed spy thriller, Villanelle (Jodie Comer) shoots Eve (Sandra Oh) leaving her for dead. She may or may not be dead, but chances are that the titular overeager and obsessive British intelligence officer will survive the gunshot wound considering the series has been renewed for a third season — but you never know. Either way, Eve’s maybe-death at the hands of Villanelle had us all in shock. At the same time, it mirrors the end of the first season when Even stabbed Villanelle leaving her for dead. The glassy-eyed assassin was simply returning the favor.

This Killing Eve review contains spoilers.

Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 8

Killing Eve set the tone for its season 2 finale early: Eve heard gunshots outside her room, kicking off a sequence that led to Villanelle slitting Aaron Peel’s throat while making him watch, all within the first fifteen minutes. Where do we go from here? the two women were left wondering while the audience glanced at the clock and had much the same experience.

This season started off strong and faltered a bit when Villanelle became too much a part of Eve’s world, their interactions too commonplace to have the kind of strange, stabby spark that makes the show so electric. I have a feeling that those who binge-watch or who see it week-to-week but are warned that their concerns are

‘Killing Eve’: Henry Lloyd-Hughes Goes Inside the Awkward Family Dinner That Turned Violent

‘Killing Eve’: Henry Lloyd-Hughes Goes Inside the Awkward Family Dinner That Turned Violent
“I lived to tell the tale.”

On “Killing Eve,” not many can boast as much after a violent run-in with the assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer). But for now, actor Henry Lloyd-Hughes can say his character Aaron Peel survives —albeit with a very bloody nose — after Sunday’s episode.

This season, “Killing Eve” introduces the idea of a different kind of threat, one that doesn’t operate as boldly and colorfully as Villanelle does. Aaron enters the picture after his father, the owner of tech giant Pharaday UK, is suspiciously murdered. When MI6 investigates, they suspect Aaron of patricide (through a paid assassin) and then hire Villanelle to go undercover as “Billie” to sniff out more information.

IndieWire spoke with Lloyd-Hughes about playing the enigmatic new character who’s created so much havoc but kept his hands visibly clean. “There’s a real kind of tangible sense of someone who is complex,

2019 BAFTA TV Awards red carpet report live from Royal Festival Hall in London

2019 BAFTA TV Awards red carpet report live from Royal Festival Hall in London
I usually start these BAFTA Awards reports by talking about the weather – the favorite topic of talk for any and all Brits, after all – and today is no different. The weather is rather glorious here at the Royal Festival Hall in London, where things are slowly beginning to tick towards the start of this year’s BAFTAs for television.

Typically, for a Brit, I still have something to moan about despite the sun shining down on us here at Southbank. It’s rather sticky weather to be wearing a suit and tie in. And that is pretty obvious for anyone watching the red carpet. All of the well-dressed gents are already clawing at their top buttons and bow ties.

One of those gents is “Avengers: Endgame” star Benedict Cumberbatch, who is nominated for Best Actor in a TV Drama for “Patrick Melrose,” which won Best Drama Writing for David Nicholls

Another international hit, “Bodyguard,” is also up for Best Drama Series. But while leading lady Keeley Hawes was nominated, the show’s star, Richard Madden, was snubbed despite winning a Golden Globe. Unlike the Emmys, where Madden is a strong contender,

Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 5 Review: Smell Ya Later

They're colleagues now.

Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 5 offered a lot more information to prove our new theory that Eve might be getting groomed for something far different than being a plain vanilla MI6 agent.

Is that on your mind, too?

When Eve ultimately decides that she cannot get the Ghost by any conventional means, she leans far to the left of her conventional side. 

But I'm beginning to wonder if Eve has the conventional side she's been using as her social armor. 

After the events of Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 4, we got to chatting in the comments, and what was almost a throwaway from Carolyn to her boss doesn't seem as flippant as it could have been read.

That comment was that everything was going according to plan.

In the wake of that niggling comment, it's impossible not to explore other avenues for Carolyn's trust

Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Desperate Times

The yearning between Villanelle and Eve is almost painful.

As a result of entering each other's orbit, their entire lives have gotten upended, and that plays out very well on Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 4.

We didn't get to spend a lot of time with either woman before the met, but the way their relationship has twisted their lives is slowly revealing itself.

While Eve is trying to catch a killer who isn't Villanelle, Villanelle is trying to infuse some excitement into the garbage heap killings that she's now a party to with her new venture with Konstantin.

It's not going very well for either of them.

If nothing else, Villanelle is back to her signature style, even attracting Instagram kooks on the street who want to share her beauty with their followers. 

Girl: Wow. You look amazing. Can I take a picture of you for my Instagram?

Villanelle: No. No.

‘Killing Eve’: Villanelle Goes Hog Wild in a Game-Changing Episode That’s Anything but Boring

‘Killing Eve’: Villanelle Goes Hog Wild in a Game-Changing Episode That’s Anything but Boring
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Killing Eve” Season 2, Episode 4, “Desperate Times.”]

Boredom may be the theme of Sunday’s “Killing Eve,” but the episode is anything but boring. Following last week’s frustrating installment, the show returns to form as it takes a few unexpected turns peeling back more layers of the onion-like psyches of MI6 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer). The show’s flirtation with darkness and yearning has always been its bloody, beating heart, and even though the killer and Eve may still be miles apart, the episode executes a surprise unmasking that will have an affect on both women.

Villanelle in particular is feeling the boredom in Amsterdam, the location of her first freelance assassination arranged by her former handler/now partner Konstantin (Kim Bodnia). Classical art is boring. Scorned wives putting hits on their philandering husbands is boring. Even dressing up as a sexy anthropomorphic Dutch

Killing Eve's Kim Bodnia on Konstantin's Return, Relationship with Villanelle & More

Kim Bodnia's Konstantin is integral to BBC America's Killing Eve in many ways. He brings levity to Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and keeps her grounded.

Konstantin is also wrapped up in the mystery of The Twelve investigated by Eve (Sandra Oh) and connected to Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) in ways we still don't understand.

This past week we had the opportunity to chat with Kim Bodnia by telephone, and while he refused to offer a hint of what's to come, he does have some insight on Villanelle and what makes the program such a success.

Bodnia is honored to bring Konstantin to life. "It's so funny. I think the way there are putting him up, and you never know what's going on. It's so lovely. It's so complex and lovely to play him."

If you've heard Konstantin laugh, you've heard Bodnia laugh, and both get to do it often.

‘Killing Eve’ Preview: Konstantin Is ‘Not Safe at All’ Around Villanelle

‘Killing Eve’ Preview: Konstantin Is ‘Not Safe at All’ Around Villanelle
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Killing Eve” Season 2, Episode 3, “The Hungry Caterpillar.”]

On “Killing Eve,” certain people just cannot resist the strange allure of Villanelle (Jodie Comer), and now that her handler Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) came back from the dead in the last episode, he wastes little time in reuniting with his former assassin partner. In an interview with IndieWire upon his resurrection, Bodnia revealed that he was never sure of his character’s status because Konstanin dies much earlier in the Luke Jennings novels on which “Killing Eve” is based.

“Konstantin should have been dead in Episode 5 or 6 or something like that. Really dead. No question about it,” he said. “And so I was so surprised when I got the script we were shooting and that kept changing. I was in [Episode] 7 and 8 and, eventually, shot in the stomach.”

Even then, Bodnia held out hope that somehow Konstantin survived and would return for Season 2. “BBC America

‘Killing Eve’ Review: Everyone Gives Into Temptation Except Carolyn in a Maddening Episode

‘Killing Eve’ Review: Everyone Gives Into Temptation Except Carolyn in a Maddening Episode
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Killing Eve” Season 2, Episode 3, “The Hungry Caterpillar.”]

Only on “Killing Eve” can a dangerous blade hidden in lipstick be interpreted as a love note. In the final moments of Sunday’s episode, MI6 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) cuts herself using the doctored lipstick left in her purse by killer Villanelle (Jodie Comer). The name of the lip shade, Love in an Elevator, not only connects Villanelle to a recent assassination in a lift, but reflects her mindset is still firmly focused on Eve. The pain and blood caused by the knife isn’t a threat; it’s a bloody, coded kiss.

Despite this and many other delicious highlights in “The Hungry Caterpillar,” the episode doesn’t make much progress in their cat-and-mouse game and even presses reset by placing Villanelle back with her old handler Konstantin (Kim Bodnia). Compared to Season 1’s third episode, which catapulted the series forward by changing the stakes,

‘Killing Eve’ Exclusive First Look: Eve Meets the Romantic Competition – Watch

‘Killing Eve’ Exclusive First Look: Eve Meets the Romantic Competition – Watch
Killing Eve” is about many things: murder, style, ego, control, but most of all, desire. The series is powered off of the mutual fascination between dedicated MI6 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and the flamboyant, attention-seeking international assassin who calls herself Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Their intense chemistry came to a head in the finale last season when Eve stabbed Villanelle, which led to them being parted this year.

That reset and separation in Season 2 has prompted Eve to reevaluate her current, government-recognized romantic relationship, her marriage to her husband Niko (Owen McDonnell). Last season, Eve shut him out and pulled away from their relationship in her blind pursuit of Villanelle and revenge for her co-worker’s murder. Although Niko showed forbearance, taking care of Eve and even cooking her meals daily, he eventually lost his patience as a result of her drive.

‘Killing Eve’ Reveals Villanelle Is Truly Vulnerable for the First Time in the Creepiest Episode Yet

‘Killing Eve’ Reveals Villanelle Is Truly Vulnerable for the First Time in the Creepiest Episode Yet
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Killing Eve” Season 2, Episode 2, “Nice and Neat.”]

Sunday’s anxiety-inducing “Killing Eve” introduces viewers to Villanelle (Jodie Comer) at her most fragile, and it’s a shocking and heartbreaking sight. Always portrayed as the most confident and competent of assassins, she’s never been at a loss even if after being thrown in a Russian jail, getting stabbed, or laughably demoted. However, hubris is her worst enemy while she’s on the run as she’s overestimated her resources and underestimated the creepiness of men.

“What does it feel like to be a woman who’s used to doing whatever they want, but is suddenly seriously, physically compromised in danger, and starting to get sick?” said showrunner Emerald Fennell in an interview with IndieWire. “And then for Villanelle, if you believe that you’re immortal because you have been up until that point, and you’re a psychopath, what does

Killing Eve Season 2: What Happened to Konstantin?

Delia Harrington Apr 14, 2019

We discuss what Villanelle's Season 1 handler/Russian Intelligence Officer Konstantin might mean for Killing Eve's future.

This Killing Eve article contains major spoilers up through Season 2 Episode 2, Nice and Neat.

During the shocking final moments of season 2 episode “Nice and Neat,” we learned that Konstantin Vasiliev (Kim Bodnia) is actually alive, having survived Villanelle shooting him in the chest at the end of last season. The roguish, charming double-agent was a highlight of last season so it’s good to have him back, but what does it mean for the world of Killing Eve that he not only survived, but is in London?

Who is Konstantin Vasiliev?

Konstantin spent most of last season attempting to wrangle Villanelle as her handler for The Twelve, a mysterious international crime organization. He tells her who to kill (or that there’s a new assignment coming), delivers cash, and generally does
