You have to give this to BBC America and AMC's Killing Eve major credit for at least one thing this season already: it did not waste any time with excessive teasing, reuniting Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) only three episodes in. Eve begins her investigation into the dearly departed Kenny's (Sean Delaney) death, discovering that he was looking into a reactivated Fat Panda account in Geneva. With Carolyn's (Fiona Shaw) help, Eve finds her way to ex-Russian agent Charles Krueger, who also happens to be The Twelve's accountant. In the midst of it all, the two run into each other. They fight. They yell. Villanelle needs Eve to smell her. Eve kisses her instead. Then one headbutt later, their brief "first date" is over. The episode wasn't, of course: Eve thought Carolyn was Villanelle's target but it was actually Krueger, so that trail just went dead-cold. Before the credits rolled, we were left with a life-appreciating Carolyn, a Villanelle who now wants to know about her birth family, and Eve with a teddy bear filled with "what might've been."
Which leads perfectly into the above trailer and following sneak preview for next week's episode "Still Got It." As Eve's investigation continues, it looks like that kiss might've had a bigger impact on Villanelle than we realized. Is that baking that's going on? Are we seeing cakes being delivered? That's what it looks like, but even the occasion of her birthday isn't a good enough reason for Eve to let down her guard. The third season also stars Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent), Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9), and Raj Bajaj (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding). Turlough Convery (Ready Player One), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter franchise), and Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day) also star.
In the video below, the fine folks at BBC America have put together a look back at the first two seasons of Killing Eve, with each of our "wonder twins" getting a chance to vent some of their serious season-ending frustrations out on one another (so does that mean they're both going to get attacked at the end of this season?). British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) serves as lead writer and executive producer for the third season, with Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas, Jeff Melvoin, and Oh also serving as executive producers, and Nigel Watson serving as producer. Killing Eve is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. for BBC America and distributed by Endeavor Content.
