'Killing Eve' Season 3 Episode 7: Will Konstantin die? Fans aren't ready for Geraldine's wish to come true
When Konstantin says it's 'very possible' that he might die, how real is he being?
Spoilers for 'Killing Eve' Season 3 Episode 7 'Beautiful Monster'
After being ambushed by pretty much everybody he knows, at his home and in the dark, there's plenty of reason to worry about Konstantin's (Kim Bodnia) heart. For weeks now, we have seen him get scared by Villanelle (Jodie Comer) hiding in his bed, Paul ambushing him in his living room, and on the latest Episode 7 of Season 3, Gerandile was waiting for him at his dinner table with a fillet mignon. Konstatin's deafening screams at every single one of these 'surprises' saw the fandom getting worried about the old man, with some of them even sharing on social media that the people are going to give him a heart attack one of these days. But based on the latest one, and also the coming episode's trailer, Konstantin did suffer a major heart attack, something that has the fandom convinced death might be on the cards for him.
After getting cursed by Irina for stranding her in the detention center, and later getting cursed to die by Geraldine Martens (Gemma Whelan) for using her to spy on her mother, Konstantin turns to the only other person who somewhat cares about him in a world full of people who want to kill him: Villanelle. Technically, she would kill him too, given the chance, but they both are fleeing from The 12 and you know what they say about keeping your frenemies close.
So as the episode comes to a wrap, and Konstantin and Villanelle are about to board a train, the older man suddenly spasms in the middle of the station, freezes and falls to the ground. While Villanelle gets on the train, luckily Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) arrives right in time to find Konstantin stiffening on the platform floor. She watches Villanelle leave, they wave at each other, and next thing we know, Konstantin is in a hospital bed, eating jello and laughing his butt off. This prompted a fan to share on Twitter: "OK WE ARE SURE THAT KONSTANTIN SURVIVED FROM HEART ATTACK BUT CAN I SURVIVE MINE????????!?!!?!"
All caps and presumable screaming were the common tones within the fandom after this explosive episode, probably taking a tip or two from Geraldine who claimed she will make as much noise as she likes. But there were also fans celebrating in calm relief that he is alive, sharing: "I'm really happy that Konstantin is alive. I like his relationship with Vil and his laugh is just iconic. I'd be very sad to see him go. I'm not ready for it."
But there's a catch. As Konstantin tried laughing his a** off, another loud, equally maniacal laughter rang in from the bed next to him. When the curtain shifted, who else would it be but Dasha, of course! After being attacked by Villanelle and left to die, Eve arrives once again, just in time, to exact revenge and save her life. And as fate would have it, both the people left by Villanelle to die were spotted by Eve and somehow admitted in hospital beds next to each other. Now we know Dasha's loyalties lie more with The 12 than Konstantin's ever would, so there's a high chance they'll ask Dasha to finish him off in the time he is recuperating from the heart attack.
Screaming again in all caps, another fan expressed their tortured emotions about the development tweeting: "KONSTANTIN SAYING HE DOESN’T WANNA DIE IS THE MOST HEARTBREAKING THING I’VE EVER SEEN PLEASE MAKE IT STOP." And while he is safe for now, the alarming words of the writers announcing ahead of the season that one main character was going to die looms large too. Sure, we thought we were done with that by Kenny's shocking death in the season premiere, and later, when Niko was pitchfork the imminent tragedy seemed upon us. But with Konstantin's heart attack and the way things are unfolding for the selfishly adorable man, fans can't help but wonder: "Didn’t the writers or someone say that a main character would die? What if it was Konstantin?????"
Not to forget, when Geraldine told him "I hope you die," Konstantin replies "That's very possible." Is that a hint? Was this heart attack only the tip of the iceberg? With only the season finale to go, guess we'll find out in just a week's time on Sunday, May 31, at 9pm only on BBC America.
