Still Got It Videos
It does feel very much like, up until now, the story hasn't quite known what to do with Villanelle... And little happens to move this forward in this episode.
The good news (or, perhaps, the straw we're delusionally grasping at to keep from losing our whole entire minds right now) is that the last time we see Niko, he's not dead! I mean, not completely. He's still twitching.
The connection between Eve and Villanelle was still present, but it had cooled a bit. Now it's been reignited.
The puzzle box conceit of the episode didn't always work for me. Some moments felt forced rather than an elegant coincidence. But there's an intriguing thread of desire running the course of the episode, growing more knotted as it goes along.
This episode is a measuring stick for just how far these two characters have been pushed past their respect comfort zones. Each of them has lost whatever sense of control they thought they possessed, and every decision heaps on more emotional weight.
Killing Eve Season 3 has a clear message that this episode burns into our eyes: only two people on this show are truly safe, Eve and Villanelle. Carolyn comes in third, but don't get too comfortable with that, either. Everyone else is fair game.
When compared to the previous three episodes, Still Got It is by far the strongest installment of season three.
The final moments of "Still Got It" are a real gut punch, a twist that pushes the stakes of season 3 even higher, and gets rid of some narrative dead weight at the same time.
This episode was thoroughly entertaining, but its weakest moments were the moments spent away from our two main characters. Killing Eve is killing off pretty much everyone but Eve, and they keep adding in new characters to fill the gaps.
Holy guacamole! Killing Eve brought it this week. As much as I adore Owen McDonnell and his performance as Niko, I feel the writers have been struggling for a while regarding his character arc.
There are so many little touches in episode four which add richness to the narrative that repeat viewings are encouraged... Killing Eve is constantly expanding backstory in subtle ways.
