So, here we go again -- and like the song says, we already know how this ends. But with so much unfinished business to attend to, and an innocent life to avenge, won't it be fun to get back on this ride for yet another spin?
So far this thriller is still lacking any real thrill. After two episodes of plot catch-up, it's time for the ride to get going again; the next one really needs to kick both the action and the story up a notch.
Grief takes up space -- and in this week's episode of Killing Eve, it does so primarily through the stories of Carolyn and Eve, who find their lives occupied by grief in dramatically different ways.
Season one had the advantage of newness; season two offered a hint of what would happen if they were actually around each other. And in season three, the first two episodes seem to be geared around the concept of recreating season one.
Season 3, thus far, has the bones of a slow-burning noir detective story, with Eve as a self-destructive private investigator and Villanelle as the unforgettable femme fatale.
Much like the season premiere, Management Sucks doesn't offer anything new and exciting to the series.
Flitting around between locations and casually weaving plot threads in between dialogue exchanges only looks this easy with hard work. A self-assurance which comes from solid casting, flawless writing and clear direction drives events forward.
"Management Sucks" does a brilliant job of keeping the momentum from last week's episode going. MVP is, unquestionably, Fiona Shaw. Such a massive talent.
While it's torturous waiting for their big reunion, Killing Eve knows the best things are worth the waiting.
Though our favorite lady assassin seems to largely be existing on a different show for the bulk of this episode, her subplots are by far the most entertaining.
In lovelier and more genuinely heart-warming moments, however, Konstantin's reunion with Villanelle was everything that I hoped it would be.
