This Killing Eve Recap picks back up in Rome with Eve wandering around the palazzo sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong. She wanders into Aaron’s “command central” and we are led to believe that nothing is password protected as she is able to watch videos of herself in her wing of the palazzo. She also watches older videos where he murdered another girl staying in her room. YIKES! Will she run or will she kill him first. I’m going with option B. Especially because on the last episode Carolyn said that under no circumstances can Villanelle kill Aaron.
A Weird Looking Gentleman
Holy crap. At breakfast, Aaron tells Villanelle he going through the dirty laundry of some guy. She asks if she can see. He shows her some pictures of the potential buyer. Villanelle says, “what a weird looking gentleman!” She used the safe word! Eve was listening but that exact moment she hears a gunshot in the hall were he Hugo was making a call to Jess to update her. Then someone tries to break into her room and she hides under the bed. Because no one ever looks under the bed.
And the gunman doesn’t in this case, He takes a call and leaves. Eve goes out to save Hugo who is shot but not dead. YAY! Because, hot. She tells him that Villanelle used her safe word. She sounds as shocked as I am. Hugo begs Eve, who he just slept with the night before, to not leave him alone. She says she will tell the front desk to call an ambulance. Nothing will get between her and Villanelle.
Do You Like Sushi?
There is no one on the front desk. She calls 911 but it doesn’t work. Because, Rome. She tries 999 that’s an old number for some European countries. The new number for most European countries is 112. Bitch leaves a note about out dying hottie before leaving. Or not leaving. A henchman comes in and she pretends to work the desk. They make a dinner date for sushi at six. WTF? I love this show. She goes back into the staff closet and puts on a maid’s uniform and carries out some finished laundry.
She makes her way into the palazzo and into the room where Aaron and Villanelle are giggling over the weird looking gentleman. She storms into the room and Aaron says, “Eve Polastri…?” For reasons not exactly clear, Villanelle acknowledges knowing her. Then Villanelle tells Eve that Aaron makes movies. The murders are great but she needs more stories. Now he knows she has been in the control room. Eve tells her to leave with her now. Also, why did she grab an envelope opener. Did MI6 not give Eve or Hugo any guns?
Do You Want To Watch?
In a previous episode, Villanelle pondered if Aaron and his love for indulgence and zero ability for emotion might be her soulmate. Perhaps they are. Aaron offers her a job working for him. He says neither of them will ever be bored again. He tells her to start by killing Eve. This will never happen. She asks if he wants to watch. He says yes. Then, thirteen minutes into the finale. She grabs a knife and take Aaron in front of a mirror and basically beheads him. So he can watch.
Eve freaks out. She tells Villanelle about the armed men outside the hotel. She fails to mention fucking Hugo and the fact that she left him to bleed out to come to rescue her. Villanelle says she will handle it. Outside the palazzo, Villanelle tells Eve about a small redheaded man who works for the twelve who is not her favorite. Eve gets even more worked up when she realizes the twelve are there. Villanelle gives her a good slap across the face snap her back to her senses.
See You Soon
After a lover’s spat, Villanelle says she will be in a car outside the hotel in five minutes. She tells Eve if she sees anything crazy, “Don’t be brave.” Just come get in the car. When Eve gets back to the hotel, the note is still there and there is no one on the desk. Hugo has disappeared. And so has all of the surveillance equipment. Inside the hotel room there is a knock on the door. It’s Carolyn. who we all believe to be one of the twelve along with Konstantin.
Carolyn says that “their side” has the surveillance equipment. It’s clear that Carolyn wanted Aaron Peel dead all along. Eve realizes she was set up. Carolyn says she will get over it. She makes Eve choose, MI6 or Villanelle. What do you think she chose? When Eve tells Carolyn that when this is over she is going to tell Kenny everything, she replies, “He already knows.” Because, “He is part of the cleanup operation.” So not so naive after all!
What Are You Doing Here?
Villanelle is looking for a car to steal. They are all locked until she gets to a shiny convertible that is unlocked for her. Konstantin in on the stairs with the car fob. She asks what he is doing there. Even though we both know he is part of the twelve as well. He says he is saving her life. I officially predict a Thelma and Louise sort of exit. He tells here there is cash and a gun hidden in the dashbox. She’s happy to go rescue Eve. He says she will have to leave her behind. Are these people really that stupid?
Eve realizes she was hired to kill Aaron Peel. And that Konstantin considers Carolyn (and the twelve) as his family, not her. He needs to die now, which is sad because I love him. He tries to tell her Eve has left with Carolyn. She knows Eve would never do that. Konstantin asks her what is it with her and Eve. She says they are the same. Her goes back up the stairs in tears. Villanelle says she will find him and his family. He says, “I don’t think so.” Oh I do. I think he and his family are as good as dead. Well maybe not that one daughter she likes.
A Weird Looking Gentleman With An Ax Meets Villanelle With A Gun
However will this encounter turn out? Not well, bitch. It finally occurs to me that the weird looking gentleman is Raymond her handler after Konstantin. There is a hugely dramatic fight between Raymond and Villanelle. Eves shows up and tries to save her fair maiden with an axe to his back but she doesn’t have the strength to finish him off. Villanelle convinces her to hit him again and again. He promises “they” will come after her and everything she loves. And she axes him over and over. Villanelle and Eve both seem a bit thrilled by this. But that is exactly what the twelve, at least one of whom is in MI6. wanted. Villanelle is thrilled but Eve is freaking out because she just axed Raymond to death to save the woman she loves.
Eve needs to puke but Villanelle tells her to swallow it, Because DNA. But then she helps her take the maid’s jacket off and casually tosses it on the ground. Leaving both of their DNA by the body?
Standing Up A Date
As the two lovers try and make a clean escape, the henchman Eve has a date with shows up outside. Also the note about Hugo is still there and there is no one at the front desk.
Eve and Villanelle duck into some sort of underground tunnel. Above ground, Carolyn meets up with Konstantin and gives him an envelope. Money? The location of his family?
Back in the tunnel, Eve pounds her way out of a wooden door while Villanelle looks on with… adoration? They exit out to some beautiful Italian ruins and discuss what to make for dinner. Spaghetti it is. They plot their escape to Alaska. Villanelle says she has money so she doesn’t need to worry. I’m just happy Niko gets to keep his penis again this season.
You Had A Gun The Whole Time?
In the ruins, Villanelle pulls out her gun. Eve realizes she could have killed Raymond. Villanelle says she wanted her to know how it feels to kill someone. She asks how it felt to kill someone. Eve replies, “wet.” Villanelle tells her she is proud of her. A huge lovers spat ensues. Eve turns to go back home. Villanelle fires a shot. But we know she didn’t mean to hit her. Or maybe she did. We see Eve on the ground and Villanelle walking off in the opposite direction.
There has to be a season three. This show is way to popular for Eve to die. Thanks for reading all of my recaps. They are very time consuming with few readers but I love doing them when I can fit them in. Oh and fuck you to the bitch who kept screaming at me to “hurry up and do them.” That only made me take my fucking time.
See you next season?
