The upcoming episode four of 'Killing Eve' season 2 is all sorts of extra, but that's exactly what you can expect when our favorite serial assassin, Villanelle, is on the loose.
With a new killer in town, dead bodies keep turning up left right and center, as our titular MI6 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) struggles to put a finger on who could be behind these vicious, but systematic and minimally executed attacks. She knows for a fact that these murders are not Villanelle's style, as the assassin played by Jodie Comer loves being flamboyant and extravagant with her murders. But Eve is also aware that there's a high chance Villanelle is back, especially since the most recently aired third episode showed Eve at the receiving end of an unsuspected attack courtesy a random lipstick she had found in her back.
As viewers, however, we have more clarity on the matter because we know for a fact that Villanelle is far from dead and pretty much inches away from Eve as she is going about trying to sabotage the detective's marriage. But in the upcoming episode, we see her indulging in going around town with her former handler, Konstantin (Kim Bodnia), and suddenly realization hits that maybe the older, Russian man is actually trying to trick the MI6.
Titled 'Desperate Times,' the fourth episode comes packed with Eve and Villanelle trying out new things amidst indulging in older habits. While Villanelle goes looking at art galleries with Konstantin - something that she labels is 'boring' - Eve ends up giving smoking a shot. It's interesting how she calls the habit 'disgusting,' yet refuses to give up smoking her first ever cigarette - sort of like her strange obsession with Villanelle which both irks her yet keeps her on the hook at the same time.

As more and more bodies keep turning up, Eve's boss - Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) - has to go through her own fair share of being reprimanded by her seemingly erratic boss, so that's definitely something to look forward to when the next episode arrives. But what will also keep you at the edge of your seat is Villanelle going back to her insane costume days, because spoiler alert, but the infamous, sinister looking pig costume from the season 2 trailer is finally about to make an appearance in episode four!
The most hilarious part about the trailer is Carolyn's son, Kenny, informing someone that another dead body has turned up, but the very next scene shows Villanelle sitting on a couch in all her bratty glory, flailing her arms, as she says "I don't care." Classic sociopath Villanelle behavior, but there's no getting over her character!
'Killing Eve' season 2, episode 4 'Desperate Times,' arrives on Sunday, April 28, only on BBC America.
