The final episode of Killing Eve season 3 airs Sunday – but none of us knows what to expect from the end of this rollercoaster of a story.

The final episode of Killing Eve season 3 is set to air this Sunday and in all honestly, most of us have no idea what to expect.

Mostly, that’s because there’s so much story still to go – and so little time to do so. Since Killing Eve has already been renewed for a fourth season, we should probably just accept that some massive cliffhanger is coming our way – one in which Eve and Villanelle try to kill one another again, or maybe run off together this time, who can say?

But there’s more going on than just Eve and Villanelle’s constant back-and-forth sexual tension.

There’s the fact that mysterious organization The Twelve clearly doesn’t trust Villanelle as much as it once did. There’s the whole Kenny murder situation that sill needs to be resolved. Konstantin had a heart attack last week, his daughter Irina is still stuck in a Russian mental institution, and they were both planning to run away to Cuba and (maybe?) freedom. Dasha’s not actually dead, and presumably out for revenge on Villanelle. And then there’s whatever the point was of Carolyn’s daughter Geraldine joining the canvas was. (I’m still not 100% clear on this point.)

How does this all fit together? Is there any way we will all feel satisfied with this season at the end of it? I honestly don’t know.

Though an episode trailer aired last week, BBC America hasn’t released it online themselves. (Interesting, since it shows us that Villanelle and Eve find their way together again at some point during the finale.)

Instead, the network shared a sneak peek scene featuring Villanelle and Twelve recruit Rhian, the person responsible for offing Mo last week. Though how exactly this fits in with everything else going on is anyone’s guess.

Given that last week’s episode ended with what looked like Villanelle fleeing the country – or at least fleeing The Twelve – how she gets back to working with one of the assassins is…well, something to wonder about. Though season 3 has been full of a fair amount of plot take backs so far, so it’s probably as likely as not that Villanelle changed her mind about leaving at some point after she got on the train that pulled her away from Eve.

But, this is the season’s last episode – surely Killing Eve will have to commit to a direction for her character now? (And Eve’s, as well, but that’s a rant for another day.)
