Killing Eve season 3 continues, as Eve attempts to navigate the fallout from that shocking premiere cliffhanger and Villanelle moves up in the world.

We have a lot of questions after the Killing Eve season 3 premiere. Kenny’s sudden death was a jarring shock in the premiere’s final moments, and will inevitably spin the season off in a whole new direction.

While we’re all assuming that the Twelve are responsible for Kenny’s death, what we don’t know is why. Yes, he was still digging into the shadowy organization despite the fact that the special unit he worked for had already been abandoned. But we don’t know what precisely he discovered, or why that information was dangerous enough to cost him his life.

Plus, there’s the question of how his death will inevitably impact his mother – the notoriously stoic Carolyn – and Eve, who discovered his body while already hanging on by the slimmest of threads herself.s

One has to assume that the investigation of his murder – or potential revenge on the people responsible for it – will somehow draw these two women back into one another’s orbits a

The season’s second episode, entitled “Management Sucks,” will also see Villanelle attempt to sort out her professional future. It’s the episode that features star Jodie Comer in the clown costume we saw in the initial season 3 trailer, and her small sidekick indicates that maybe this is the beginning of her training in how to be a mentor herself. (Or a “Keeper”, however the Twelve defines that role.”

Basically, there will never be a time when I don’t want to watch Villanelle in a clown outfit yelling at children, just saying.

But that’s not all we have to look forward to this week.

BBC America also released an additional sneak peek scene from the upcoming episode, which shows Konstantin’s reunion with Villanelle. (Which appears to have been a rather long time coming, and she doesn’t seem too happy about it.)

Is Konstantin there to warn her off from working with the Twelve? To tell her Eve’s alive? Or something else entirely?
