In last night’s episode of Killing Eve
, Pam, played by Anjana Vasan talked to Hélène (Camille Corrin), eager to get away from her brother (Manpreet Bachu) and start working for her, but she told Pam she was not ready. Not happy and fed up with her brother, Pam murdered him thinking it would move the timeline forward, but it only served to anger Hélène for disobeying. However, Hélène approached Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) to start Pam’s training as an assassin.
According to Vasan, Pam is miserable and desperate to start working for Hélène, because she is offering something she didn’t think she could have. “I think there's an element of grooming involved with this story between Hélène and Pam, because…she's in a kind of a desperate situation,” Vasan told Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview. “I think what Hélène promises is something more extraordinary. Just Hélène, as herself, is so aspirational, and I think she kind of feeds slowly into Pam's idea that she can get out of this place…So, I think she's kind of seduced in a way by what Hélène is offering. And I think she assumes that people who look like Hélène, who are from where they are, from a much more privileged background, must be doing important work or worthy work, and there's a reason for why they do what they do, because they're rich, expensive looking important people. So, she's very naive in that sense, but that's why she's easily influenced and molded potentially into something more dangerous.”
