‘Killing Eve’ Season 3 Review: A scandalous affair power-packed with villainous women, murder and mayhem
No Spoilers for ‘Killing Eve’ Season 3 Episodes 1-8
A murderous chill runs down the spine as you sit back and stare at the brilliance ‘Killing Eve’ spills in each frame. Can two women send a bright spark of electricity down your mind? When it comes to Eve Polastri, played by Sandra Oh and Villanelle, essayed by Jodie Comer, the chemistry can madden you with fury.
As the BBC America series comes with a saucy and scandalous Season 3, it makes heads turn and you won't be able to resist its charm. The show may have ended with a major cliffhanger, but even before you start watching, there's enough reason to believe that Eve is still alive. She could be seen in the trailer as well as in the first look images.
The show starts on a staggering note. For Villanelle, the assassin without a job, Eve is dead. As for Eve, the ex-MI6 operative is hiding in plain sight, hoping that Villanelle will never find her.
All seems fine until a shocking death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances. And perhaps a share of their souls.
Like its previous two seasons, there is a slice of madness, murder, and mayhem this time too. If the first season created a wave with its gender-switching characters, the second season changed the dynamics of relationships in its entirety. And the third season carries the legacy forward.
The head writer seems to have had a big role to play in setting up the splendor — as Phoebe Waller-Bridge rightfully said, "We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote's hilariously murderous hands."
Eve and Villanelle cross paths again, but are they sworn-enemies or star-crossed lovers? With no spoilers for the racy and risqué story, we can't help but stay tight-lipped.
The only hint, perhaps, could be that their reunion will arouse all your senses — yes, quite literally! A shocking death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances. And perhaps a share of their souls.
While Oh charms you with her innocence and wit, Comer brings an evil nonchalance to her character that spills savagery in every scene. One is a psychopath, and the other isn't. But, perhaps, their streak of lunacy intertwines in an untangible way and it remains to be seen whether Villanelle has been changed by Eve, if at all.
At the end of every episode, suspense and shock fill each frame but the slow-moving and repetitive plot mars the dynamic frenzy that the first two seasons had. What keeps you hooked are the two incredibly confident, powerful and villainous women.
Even though you may be slightly disappointed with the new season, it is a whole new dimension altogether and you won't regret stepping into it. Worthy of three stars, new episodes will kill you with thrill every week!
