One of the things that makes Killing Eve
interesting, is that while you want Eve (Sandra Oh) and MI6 to prevail, you also don’t want Villanelle (Jodie Comer) to get captured or killed. This season with Villanelle working with MI6, it has made the lines blur more and even made it easier to forget sometimes that Villanelle is not only a coldblooded killer, but she enjoys it. The whole operation was bound to fail from the beginning, but it was a lot of fun to watch play out.
Obviously, the title of the episode, “You’re Mine,” is partially a reference to the line at the end of the episode, which we’ll get to, but it also represents the twisted and obsessive relationship between Villanelle and Eve. For the first season, most of it was in Villanelle’s head, but throughout this season, Eve’s obsession with her has continued to grow. The relationship between Villanelle and Eve has always been a strange one to say the least, but also very interesting and one of the best parts of the show.
Lately Eve has been moving ahead full force and not looking back, ignoring everyone who tries to get her to see what she’s doing, fully trusting Villanelle at this point. She sometimes seems to recognize she is behaving abnormally, but she still doesn’t stop. Before she was intrigued but also scared, however, as her obsession has grown, she has become more and more comfortable around Villanelle. After her husband left her, it only got worse, opening it up to her being less likely to hold back. Niko (Owen McDonnell) was a sort of tether for her at one point, but now that she feels she’s lost him, all bets are off.
