With just two episodes left to go in Killing Eve season 3, we’re all wondering where on earth this story can possibly go next.

It feels like we’ve only just started, but somehow we’ve only got two episodes left to go in Killing Eve season 3. And with everything going on, it’s difficult to predict how the show could possibly tie it all up by the finale. Or even get to a good stopping point.

In last week’s episode we learned that Eve’s husband Nico wasn’t actually dead after all. Eve tracked down Dasha and found out that Villanelle was moving up in the ranks of the The Twelve’s murder for hire organization. And the assassin herself was struggling with her continued murderous lifestyle, insisting that she wants to escape with Konstantin and his daughter Irina to Cuba.

Oh and Irina also ran over and probably killed her mother’s new boyfriend on their way out of town. Whoops?

Where we go after all…that, is anybody’s guess. Is Villanelle serious about leaving the assassin life behind? Will Konstantin allow her to come with him and his daughter? Or will Eve track her down and try to get her to share what she knows?

The penultimate episode of season 3 is called “Beautiful Monster,” an intriguing title that could apply to…well, a lot of characters. Villanelle is obviously the most likely choice, even that she is both beautiful and monstrous on a daily basis. But given everything Eve’s dealing with right now, it could just as easily refer to her – will this be the episode she finally crosses a line she can’t undo?

Unfortunately, it looks as though BBC America may well have decided to stop giving us episode promos for the rest of the season, as such. Instead. we get another sneak peek clip from the upcoming installment. Which, you know, is fine and I’ll take what I can get, obviously, but it is kind of limited.

This scene involves Carolyn, Eve and a very uncomfortable brunch in which it looks that Eve might be on her own when it comes to her determination to hunt down Villanelle for her knowledge of The Twelve.

In all honesty, it’s nice that someone is calling Eve out on her bizarre behavior. (Why she’s moved right past someone stabbing her husband through the neck and straight to this idea of Villanelle turning some kind of informant on the org she works for, I have no idea. But Eve’s POV has largely been a mystery this season.)
