UPDATE! I stayed up all night recapping this episode because I could not stop watching. Read the Episode 3 recap right below this one first! I should have gone to bed hours ago but I am at least going to get started on the next Killing Eve Recap. I just watched episode three and want more. But I know I don’t have the juice for the three hours the watching alone will take me (because I can’t remember if I fed the dog today or if that was yesterday let alone what happened in previous seasons).
Hurray! It is Niko and his entact penis! At least I do hope it is still intact. I worry about it so much after that one season where Villanellle was lobbing off penises at an alarming rate. Niko is apparently in Poland where his mother lives and working as a bread delivery truck driver. And most importantly, he is ignoring Eve’s phone calls.
A Double Decker Bus Theme Begins
Eve appears to be sleeping at the office and taking whore baths in the bathroom sink. Her face is still fucked up from headbutting Villanelle. I presume she is afraid to sleep at home since Villanelle was in her apartment. Niko has finally returned a text. I hate when they have text conversations. I have to get up and walk all the way over to the TV and read them. But the employees are starting to arrive Eve, like many of us is not wearing pants. So she has to throw some on and steal some of Bear’s cereal. When Eve sits next to him to work on the Geneva money trail, we get our first smell reference of the episode. Eve stinks. When Bear comments on it, she says, “I can’t smell anything.” Oh girl, we know.
Eve gets a delivery from a bakery. It’s a birthday cake shaped like a double decker bus. There is also a little stop sign and a happy birthday banner. Is it from Niko or Villanelle or maybe even Konstantin since he seems to have a thing for putting devices in things shaped like double decker buses this season. She throws her cake off the roof. Jaime tells Eve she can’t live in the office. Jaime lets her stay at his place. Not smart Jaime. I hope you survive the season! Jaime and Eve play a game of who has the most awful resume of bad deeds. It’s surprisingly sort of a tie. Jaime says it is all about choices. The next day, Eve makes the choice to leave the investigation and go get her man in Poland.
Konstantin goes to see his redheaded daughter, Irina, at her school in Moscow and they skip school for ice cream. She still has a smart mouth and fugly haircut. She doesn’t get along with her mother’s boyfriend and wants to spend the night with him but he has to be back in Barcelona. The real reason Konstantin is in town is to visit Charles Kruger’s widow. She says the day he died he sent her a strange email. He said that a lot of money had gone missing and he had figured out who took it. If anything were to happen to him she should forward and email with a file to a certain address. Konstantin convinces her to send it to him instead and promises to get her “someplace safe.”
Later, Konstantin is in Barcelona and sees Villanelle on the street. Oddly he looks on the phone a Irina’s information. I’m not sure if he actually tried to call her or just looked at her photo. There is this whole family thing happening with Villanelle this season. And he sort of views Villanelle as his other wayward daughter. He walks up to Villanelle and shouts, BOO! Perhaps as payback for her hiding in his bed on the previous episode and that was that. I feel like I missed something here.
Another Birthday Cake Bites The Dust
Villanelle makes a cake in her lovely kitchen. Well it’s not lovely at the moment because she’s a very messy cook like me. Dasha comes in an makes fun of her cake for not looking like the photo. Villanelle has a tantrum and starts to throw it away. Dasha says it might still taste good. She tastes it and says, “Throw it away.”The cake was for Eve’s birthday. Dasha starts collecting Villanelle’s fancy clothes off the floor. She says Villanelle doesn’t deserve nice things if she doesn’t take care of them. Then she tells Villanelle that “they” want to see her, she is getting a promotion and a new contract. She was told to take some down time and not to travel. So of course, she will travel.
But first she must shop! And we are back to the scene where Konstantin shows up to scare her and we finally get to see what she was looking at that had her so distracted. It was two women shopping together probably sisters. So, Konstantin and Villanelle get into one of those Barcelona Port Cable Cars to talk. Konstantin is anxious. It does look rather terrifying. Konstantin lets Villanelle know that Niko and Eve have split and he is in Poland. I guess we know where she will travel now. Konstantin says he got Villanelle what she wanted…her family. He hasn’t found their location yet but he needs a favor in exchange. I imagine she will be killing the grieving widow.
Tiptoe Through The Tulips
The next thing you know, someone is trimming rose bushes by lobbing off the blooms. Of course it is Villanelle. The crying widow comes out and asks her to stop because they were her husband’s favorite. Villanelle says she free now and can be whoever she wants. She sobs and hugs her and says she doesn’t want to be free. She wants to be a family. I’m not overly excited about this family theme running through this season. Anyway, Villanelle has the hiccups and the Widow Kruger scares her like she did her children to scare the hiccups away. For a moment or two they played in the garden like mother and daughter scaring each other and laughing. Then Villanelle strangled her with a garden hose. All of this occurred to a rousing rendition of Tiptoe Through The Tulips. Because, of course.
Carolyn goes to some very fancy restaurant and meets with the guy who is filling in for her at MI6. She hates him and is particularly angry that her friend Charles Kruger framed and died an innocent man. He was up to his neck in debt and certainly as she said didn’t have 600 million euros in his sock drawer. She demands her office back. On her ride back home she sees Konstantin walking down the sidewalk talking on his cellphone. At least is seemed like Konstantin to me. Since Kenny’s death, Carolyn has been even colder to Geraldine. Not wanting to get too close to avoid the emotion of it all I suppose. Geraldine breaks down crying. That just make Caroline even more distant. She goes to her bed and puts a pillow over her face. Perhaps to muffle any sobbing.
Fork You, DASHA!
A female member of the twelve comes to visit Dasha at the pool. She is not happy that Eve is in London looking for Eve. She threatens Dasha to get Villanelle under control. Sasha offers to kill Eve. But she is told that would cause too many other problems. She’s told just to drive a wedge between them she’s free to use her imagination on how to do that.
Back in Poland, one of the women on Niko’s bread route that he seemed very close to, disappeared. Another old woman was there in her place. She claimed she was in the hospital with appendicitis. You would think everyone in town would know that if it were true. She’s dead in the barn with the pigs. The new old lady is evil. Perhaps she is Villanelle’s mother? Oh no! Wait! Is that Sasha? She is stalking Niko at the bar. You better leave Niko alone! I’m pretty sure that is Sasha. She took Niko’s phone and texted Eve that she need to come to him if she wants to talk. I thought she was already on her way! This season seems a bit disjointed. While Niko worked on the barn door Sasha put a tag on a pitchfork that said “I’ve Still Got It!” I am not going to like how this ends. FUCK! Pitchfork through the neck. Stupid bitch.
Then, Villanelle arrives in Poland?
