As Killing Eve season 3 continues, we’re all wondering what’s next after Nico’s murder. But instead of answers, it looks like we’re going to Russia instead.

As Killing Eve season 3 continues, it looks as though we’re all headed to Russia to dig into Villanelle’s mysterious family. Sure, after the many dramatic events of last week’s episode, there are…well, other things to deal with.

Such as Eve’s sudden arrival in Poland just in time to see her estranged husband get stabbed to death in front of her is one of them. The fact that the weapon that killed him bore a note in the handwriting of the woman she just kissed on a bus the week before that is another. And the secret that Villanelle didn’t actually do the dirty deed herself is a third.

So, you know, not too much to cover.

Entitled “Are You From Pinner?”, this episode will pick up where the end of “Still Got It” left off – with Villanelle, newly returned to Russia, attempting to find the family she left behind.

Will she be successful? And if so, how will they receive their wayward daughter turned murderer for hire?

Intriguingly enough, BBC America has not released a preview for this episode as such, rather a sneak peek clip instead, which depicts Villanelle taking part in (I swear I am not making this up) a dung throwing competition.

Russia is real weird, y’all.

Of course, while this snippet is fun, it gives us little to no idea what to expect from this episode. And with Villanelle clearly off on her own side quest for the foreseeable, we’ve also got no idea how it could potentially deal with the other big dangling plot threads from last week – Niko’s murder, Eve’s reaction, the fact that Dacha basically did it because the Twelve think their star assassin is getting a little too distracted.

Buckle up, folks. This feels like it’s all about to get very intense.

Next. Killing Eve: "Still Got It" raises the emotional stakes. dark

Killing Eve season 3 continues Sunday at 9pm ET on BBC America.
