Warning: This post contains spoilers for Sunday New Year’s Eve Killing.
We don’t want to say for sure, but it’s like Eve and Villanelle never, never get back together.
This week on New Year’s Eve Killing, the cat and the rat are back in each other’s orbit when Villanelle crashes into Eve’s hotel room and seeks help from therapist Martin following last week’s double murder. Martin warily tells Villanelle that’s a good sign, since psychopaths really don’t want change. Villanelle also confesses that she’s still obsessed with Eve (“She’s a rainbow in beige boots”), and when Eve arrives, it looks like they can get some much-needed couple therapy. . But instead, Eve tells Villanelle, “I should have done this when we first met” – like a police officer in tactical gear rushing in to drag Villanelle away in handcuffs.
That turning point “felt like a really important moment,” lead screenwriter Laura Neal told TVLine, “because it felt like what Eve was supposed to do in Season 1.” Eve has changed a lot since then, she added, and we’re seeing “This new Eve finally comes to understand Villanelle’s power over her and understands that if she lets that chaos happen, out, it could destroy her.” Now Eve is “incentivized enough to finally actually take that step to remove Villanelle from her life.” But that raises more questions for Eve, she notes, such as: “What would my life be like without Villanelle in it?”
As for Villanelle, the sudden change came as a shock, Neal said: “I don’t think Villanelle ever believed Eve would do something like that, and for Eve to do it and see through, it was a big betrayal to Villanelle, but it’s also recognizable that perhaps her grip on Eve is slipping away. And I think that’s very frustrating for Villanelle. ” (Uh-oh… a disjointed Villanelle is a dangerous Villanelle.)
Eve is also inching closer to the dark people at the top of The Twelve – so is there a chance she won’t survive this quest? “I think we should be worried about her,” Neal admitted. “She destroyed everything, or those things in her life destroyed, and she can’t go back there. So I think she has a kind of nihilism, but also a freedom for her, which I think is pretty intoxicating.”
Now we only have a few episodes left New Year’s Eve Killing The final season of the series, is slated to air on April 10. Neal doesn’t want to give away too much, but she will say: “I think fans can expect an enjoyable, lyrical ending. thrilling, moving and satisfying for the journey of these two extraordinary characters. ”
