This is going to be a tough one. I may have to fast forward through the murder. Villanelle’s target this week is a Chinese colonel enjoys going to a kink clinic in Berlin.He gets more that he bargained for when Villanelle shows up instead of his usual nurse. I do not want to watch! I do want oopsi to tell me what his safeword was. Something like “frustook” what is the English translation? It wasn’t quite as bad as I thought.
Wait. All chickens lay eggs out of their asshole?
I am not googling that.
Back at the MI6 office (pardon the smell) Eve gets the rundown on latest victim. Everyone seems to be acting strangely. That’s because Villanelle gave her name as Eve Polastri. Villanelle has come to play. Speaking of play, she has somehow picked up a female tourist, brought her back to play and is seducing her in an odd psychopathic way. She says she is going to call her Eve and then makes out with her. Then she says in a bone-chilling way, “I’m going to go hide and you are going to come find me.” She’s not hiding her psychopathy at all. Why isn’t this idiot woman running for the door?
Eve and Bill head off to Berlin to investigate the murder and talk to the receptionist who saw Villanelle. As they pull up to the clinic, Villanelle is lurking outside watching them. Villanelle steals Eve’s luggage. As she is unpacking it she eats a sandwich, makes a face and smells it. If you can’t smell would you still fake smell? I don’t know. Then Konstantin comes out of the bathroom and she says “Oh, I thought I smelled something.”
What is up with the constant references to smells?
Konstantin tells her that Eve is in Berlin. She acts surprised even as she is standing there going through her stuff. He asks if she is worried. She says no, she doesn’t even think about her. He wants her to watch her and see who she meets with. She’s ten steps ahead of you there, buddy. The strange tourist lady walks into the hotel suite with a key, surprising Konstantin who leaves. The tourist lady asks if the clothes are for her. She says. “Oh, yeah!”
Bill and Eve go grab a coffee at an outdoor café. He apologizes for not watching her luggage. She says she hates all of her clothes anyway, and then remembers that the green scarf her husband gave her was in the bag. That was the first thing Villanelle put on.
Oh they are at this café because that is where the Chinese official that they want to meet with is. Eve’s computer expert was able to track his location using only his email account. That’s scary. And yet another reason I have no cell phone. The Chinese official says that their autopsy say the colonel died of a heart attack. There seems to be a coverup. He does lure Eve in to agreeing to go to dinner with him that night. Bill says the Chinese official wants to have sex with her.
Eve goes shopping for a dress and thinks her outfit is missing something. When she walks out to the mirror, Villanelle has left a belt for her to wear. She is enjoying this cat and mouse game. Later we notice that Villanelle has bugged her room. We find out that Bill has quite the past. He lived in Berlin for eight years and for five of them he “said yes to everything.” This is how he knows so much about the BDSM scene. He’s also mostly gay despite being married to a woman he has a baby with. They have an arrangement.
Bill walks Eve to the train station so she can go on her date with the Chinese official. In the train station he spots Villanelle for the second time. He didn’t mention the first time he saw her to Eve. Perhaps he was unsure. He seems sure now. She is wearing the green scarf. She starts to get on the train that Eve is on but he grabs her as the doors are closing. He asks her where she got the scarf. She says at her mother’s shop in Munich. He says he’s only here for a couple of days and thanks her. She jogs up the stairs and he starts following her but she gives him the slip. Or at least I thought he did. He doesn’t seem to know it is Villanelle. How can he not know?
She goes into a huge club as a VIP and he is forced to wait in line.
Meanwhile, Eve finally finds out that the dead Chinese guy had hacked into an account of a Chinese intelligence agent. They had been paying him large sums of money. A week later the colonel and the Chinese agent turned up dead. Eve bolts immediately after getting this information and heads to the club to meet up with Bill. Bill finally finds Villanelle among the massive amounts of wall to wall bodies. When Villanelle turns around and give Bill an eerie stare, he realizes who she is and tries to flee the club. She pulls out a knife. OMG! Please don’t let Bill die in Berlin! He made a joke about it to his baby girl before leaving. I love Bill!
Fuck. She stabbed him to death in the club. I am crushed. I love Bill! Damn.
Next week, Eve is out for revenge.
