Killing Eve Season 3 Episode 6: Fans ask 'where the f**k is Eve?' and demand more scenes of her and Villanelle
They are pretty riled up for the lack of screen time their queen Sandra Oh's titular Eve Polastri is getting for a show that is named after the very character
Spoilers for Season 3 Episode 6: 'End of Game'
Fans of 'Killing Eve' have a bone or two to pick with the writers this season. They are pretty riled up for the lack of screen time their queen Sandra Oh's titular Eve Polastri is getting for a show that is named after the very character. And this has led to them unanimously come out on social media, addressing how Eve and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) have barely had a minute of interaction this entire season with just one episode left to wrap.
This latest episode titled 'End of Game' finally shows us Eve, after an entire episode's dedicated to the mommy issues-centric reveal of Villanelle's origins. As Niko refuses to tolerate even a second longer of Eve, her vendetta soars to desperation. She wants to hunt down Villanelle but her only lead is a matching murder scene from decades ago. We know its not a lost cause as that same lead could either lead her to her prized target, or something worse than the fate she met with previous season.
So Eve does the most Villanelle thing ever and hunts anybody down that would get her closer to her jilted lover. And finally, after sparing seconds of sprinkling her presence in an almost hour-long episode, we see Eve for a solid five minutes because the story goes back to Carolyn's tough love, confrontations, and of course, Konstantin's troubles with leaving The 12. This became problematic for fans because they believe (as Tweeted) "This season could use a WHOLE lot of Villanelle and Eve interaction." Sounds solid because "Eve and Villanelle have interacted for maybe 2 minutes the whole season. can we just bring back villanelle and eve please?" as pointed out by another fan.
The fact that The 12 are getting so much attention isn't something the fans are happy about, even though some light on their bureaucracy would be appreciated. But now with Carolyn's boss Paul turning out to be Konstantin's boss from The 12 and things becoming all about Carolyn's grief and revenge. "This devil (Paul) appeared that we don’t even know why he’s in the series he’s more in the scenes than eve," complained one fan about the importance this Paul character has been receiving in terms of screen time. Another remarked: "They should change the name of the show to killing carolyn or something. where the fuck is my girl EVE."
A third fan tried rationalizing this absurdity noting: "I’m afraid that the writers are trying to find a way to bring a messy and unclear arc to an end, and also that they’re finding Carolyn more interesting than Eve right now." But the unanimous opinion was "what we’re not going to do killing eve is market this as an eve centric episode and then not even give her her due. imagine how tired she is. we are. WHERE IS EVE?!" The lack of screentime Eve got has fans even convinced that "there are more ads than eve." But they aren't high-maintenance or hard to please. As a fan sighed in disappointment: "I honestly just want Villanelle & Eve scenes. Nothing is happening."
'Killing Eve' Season 3 airs on Sundays at 9 pm only on BBC America.
