It’s fair to say that this third season of Killing Eve has not set the world alight and part of that failure is due to the lack of screentime we have had with Villanelle (Jodie Comer).
Yes, the cat-and-mousery with Eve (Sandra Oh) and the spook shenanigans of Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) are have their moments but it feels a little like filler writing.
Tonight, we get a bit more filler backstory (but at least it focuses on Comer) as Villanelle returns to Mother Russia after discovering that some of her family are still alive.
Perhaps a new connection to her roots will give her back what’s been missing in her life. Or perhaps she’ll just do what Villanelle does best. There will be blood.
Killing Eve – Monday from 6.00am on BBC3.
