Former Grey’s Anatomy actress plays the title character of former M6 analyst Eve Polastri in the BBC drama, which is constantly locked in a cat and mouse game with the Russian psychopathic assassin Villanelle ( Jodie Comer).
However, as the third round spanned the entire series, focusing on Villanelle’s past, the grief of MI6’s big wig, Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw), following the loss of his son Kenny Stowton (Sean Delaney) and Konstantin Vasiliev (Kim Bodnia) difficult relationship with his daughter Irina (Yuli Lagodinsky).
While some have enjoyed delving deeper into the lives of Villanelle’s support characters and ongoing antics, others are not very pleased with the seemingly reduced lifespan of Oh as Eve in the series.
Naturally, fans of the series turned to social media to complain about Eve’s lack in Killing Eve, asking “Where’s Eve?” “
A fan wrote on Twitter: “Killing Eve is 8 episodes a season. WE HAVE NO TIME FOR THIS SIDE CHARACTER SHIT WHEN EVE IS THE MAIN CHARACTER AND SHE IS NEVER ON SCREEN. “
Another disgruntled admirer of the series tweeted, “So where’s Eve？ The writers for this season are really bad！ We want to see Eve and Villanelle together. “
Another spectator commented, “EVE’S SCREEN TIME. WHERE IS IT ?! ?? !! WHERE IS ITTTTT !!!!! ?? !! @KillingEve “
“The last time I checked that the show was called killing EVE … where is it?” Commented another fan.
Meanwhile, another viewer noted: “This season no longer kills the day before, it only kills secondary characters at this point … where is EVE? “
Finally, we concluded on the last episode of the race: “The worst episode of #Killingeve so far this season. The plot is a mess and where is the dynamic Villanelle / Eve. We’ve had so much from Carolyn and Konstantin and now Irina? The EST Villanelle and Eve show on screen together !!! “
The next episode, titled Beautiful Monster, sees Eve having an intense conversation with former boss Carolyn Martens, while Villanelle has an emotional confrontation with her former mentor, Dasha (Dame Harriet Walter).
