Critic Reviews for Are You From Pinner?

While the answers found feel too pat, too final, Jodie Comer's performance is a masterclass in portraying conflicted emotions.

Villanelle finally has her family reunion, and as weird as we all expected this moment to be? It's so much weirder. Weirder by an order of magnitude.

If this season of Killing Eve has felt like it lacked enough screen time for Villanelle, then episode five somewhat makes up for it with a whole episode following only her.

Thankfully, the show doesn't try to offer a complete answer to Villanelle during its visit to the homeland. For one thing, she's a work of fiction, and so any attempt to say A + B = serial killer is going to be fraught.

Jodie Comer shines on this episode, bringing her signature blend of humor, cunning, and gravity to Villanelle's most challenging mission yet: a reunion with her birth family.

It's a crucial episode that allows us to access Villanelle from a new perspective, and one that is important in figuring out where she'll end up next. Here's hoping that the final three episodes can keep this momentum going and deliver on that promise.

At the core of Killing Eve it throws open debates round nature versus nurture, while Comer continues to make this look effortless.

God, this episode was heartbreaking. I am torn asunder, folks. Comer is so deft at her craft. She makes it all look like a cake walk, to boot.

Jodie Comer is always amazing in her role as Villanelle, but she's outdone herself this time. Her portrayal of the subtle nuances of the complex emotions Villanelle is processing is haunting. She conveyed so much in such a short amount of time.

Comer doesn't disappoint. Her performance in this episode is truly a wonder to behold, running the gamut from angry to anxious, charming to caustic.

We're getting a Villanelle bottle episode, and one with an origin story. Given that she's an established villain, it's a fascinating prospect for viewers once the realization sets in that this is happening.

Although there were plenty of funny moments (dung throwing and terrible dance troupes come to mind), it's hard not to walk away from the episode feeling a little sad.
