Following last week’s episode exploring her family, Villanelle (Jodie Comer) continues to unravel mentally in a way we haven’t ever seen before. This allows for great character development and also another chance for Comer to show what an incredible talent she is.

The best thing head writer Suzanne Heathcote has done this season is to deconstruct Villanelle, and while we all love the crazy, stylish, funny assassin, it is also nice to see who Oksana is underneath the facade.

However, one of the issues of the season is the focus on supporting characters, like Carolyn, Dasha or Konstantin, and despite them being good characters, it is taking away from Eve’s storyline, and since the first few episodes, it feels like she has had very little screen time. The season is nearly over and due to this decision, it seems like the story is just getting started.

I’m unsure why Niko needed to narratively survive, unless it ya simply to give Eve the chance to actively leave and move on.

I am curious what will happen with Irina going forward as it seems Konstantin may have more on his hands than he bargained with after letting her spend so much time with Villanelle.

The ice rink scene with Villanelle cheering and thrusting with the horn is one of them funniest scenes in the show for a long time, and I hope we get more golden moments like that from Villanelle to come.

I hope in episodes 7 and 8 the focus on the side characters plays off with big plot reveals, and it all eventually leads to Eve and Villanelle finding each other, as the season is making it even more clear that they are the two that need to depend on each other.

Episode 7 is again written by next season’s showrunner Laura Neal, who is also responsible for writing the ‘bus scene’ so I am excited to see what she has in store.
