Inside Killing Eve's 'ridiculous' axed Villanelle storyline – and why it never made the cut

KILLING Eve viewers are desperate to know how Villanelle and Eve Polastri's obsessive relationship with conclude after four series.

There has been many twist and turns and endless mind games between the pair as they try to outsmart one another – meaning the show's writers have had their work cut out to keep their viewers hooked.


Constantly churning out storylines means that some don't "make the cut" as lead writer Laura Neal revealed.

Laura explained that there have been a "lot of ridiculous ideas" that have been scrapped along the way.

"Something I was really into, for a good long while, maybe three weeks, was Villanelle to be in charge of a winning pub quiz team," she told the Metro.

"Like Villanelle gets really into pub quizzes.

"It just tickled me the idea – I thought she’d be an excellent pub quiz player because she’s got such a great general knowledge, geography, languages, all of that.

"And then we dropped it because it couldn’t give us a story for an entire season!"

BBC One fans have tuned in for the past three weeks as they watch Villanelle (Jodie Comer) try to repent for her sins, while Eve (Sandra Oh) swaps roles as the assassin.

But after a two-year hiatus since the last series, viewers have struggled to get into the new instalments and insisted they have "no idea" what's going on.

One wrote: "I have no idea what's going on anymore, who are all these new people? #KillingEve"

Another posted: "This episode is confusing me. What is happening?? I'm lost #KillingEve."

"How many more names are going to come up and should I be keeping track of all of them? #KillingEve," another commented.

Another confused fan added: "Must admit, I'm a wee bit confused how we've went from the end of Series 3, with them both turning around and admitting they can't give each other up, to Eve just completely being done with and hating Villanelle. 

"Unless I missed something, there isn't any explanation. #KillingEve". (sic)

Someone else said: "I'm pretty sure at this point, I'm only watching #KillingEve for the amazing Sandra Oh. Because the plot has me confused as hell! 

"I'm so lost about who is working for whom, who is everybody, who is dead… but I'm still entertained!"

In latest instalment Jodie Comer's assassin has abandoned Jesus and found Eve once more, but Sandra Oh's exhausted sleuth is more interested in hunting The Twelve.

Confusing scenes with a bunch of new characters including Call My Agent!'s Camille Cottin as Hélène, and Anjana Vasan as Pam, have left others moaning "I don’t really know what’s going on", as many said on Twitter that they were "losing interest".

Villanelle and Eve reunited once more and their “mutual obsession” continues to grow.

During the final scenes, the pair are sat on a sofa together and have a strange heart-to-heart.

Eve tells Villanelle and says that she “should have done this when they met” as a group of armed police officers barge through the front door.
