Killing Eve is a British black comedy-drama spy thriller television series, produced in the United Kingdom by Sid Gentle Films for BBC America.

What have we seen so far?

Eve Polastri’s (Sandra Oh) life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped for during the start. She is a brilliant, MI5 security officer who is desk-bound.

Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is an assassin, who clings to the luxuries of her job. Villanelle and Eve go head to head in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, each being equally obsessed with the other as Eve is tasked with hunting down the psychopathic assassin.

Eve remained limited to living in a New Malden bedsit, working in a Chinese restaurant, and drinking herself to sleep each night.

For Villanelle, Eve is dead while for Eve, Villanelle will never find her. Everything seemed to be going on track, until a shocking and personal death sets them to collide again. Their journey back to each other, costs both of them a high price in the form of their friends, family and perhaps even a share of their souls.

What will season 3 unfold?

Killing Eve season 3 resumed this week on BBC America and BBC iPlayer. The season introduced a new character in the form of Audrey, who was Kenny Stowton’s (Sean Delaney)  girlfriend.

Though the outlook was not so great for eve, there was a ray of hope for her, when Kenny revealed that he had become a journalist at a site called Bitter Pill. Eve’s interest gets provoked as Kenny admits that he was digging up into the 12 and the work of the shadowy organisation.

But, to a great awe, before Kenny and eve could work together, Kenny gets murdered. His death is made to look like a suicide and Eve loses all her hopes.

This Week:

The episode saw the fallout from Kenny’s death as his mother Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) tries to investigate the slaying on the sly.

She speaks to Kenny’s girlfriend Audrey about his state of mind before his death.

Audrey introduced:

Audrey also worked at Bitter Pill. She suggested that Kenny had been happy while they were together. Hearing this, Carolyn had some hint about the connection of Kenny’s untimely death with the 12.

LIFE has a funny way of happening to you. Today I very unwilling had to pull out of the play #Futureproof due to a freak accident involving a #fidgetspinner and a small child. I'm so sad that I can't be a part of this magical journey with a brilliant cast and team, but I'm a firm believer in 'everything happens for a reason' and though I'm struggling to understand what that reason is at the minute, I'm sure it will present itself in due time. I had the most wonderful time while it lasted and now I just have to focus on getting better. Thank you to the Everyman team, my director Tom, my fantastic cast- I know you'll all smash this show and to @variousfrivolities for providing me with this very apt t-shirt… #whenlifegivesyoulemons
