Killing Eve: BBC releases final season trailer

From the moment I heard the soft tones of Jodie Comer’s assassin Villanelle singing like an angel in full chorus girl attire, I fell in love with Killing Eve all over again.

The psychopathic killer-turned-religious is the best TV twist since Tommy Shelby quit drinking (OK, that was just last week, but still).

Critics have slammed the spy thriller for falling short of its own hype after the original performance blew us away. But this show remains iconic and deserves a sacred place in television history.

A gorgeous, fun, feminist show starring two of our best actresses, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, it’s all at once a glamorous Bond-esque prank, a hilarious comedy and a won’t-they-love-them story.

Women remain the focus of the show, while the men are mostly redundant – even poor Kenny got pushed off a roof.

The fourth and final act, which landed on BBC iPlayer on Monday and BBC1 last night, opened with a thrilling spectacle.

Fooling us from the start, it was Eve, not Villanelle, who took off the motorcycle helmet and shot Konstantin in the hand.

Meanwhile, Villanelle, dressed in virginal white with a silver cross around her neck, planned her baptism while trying to make good. Why? For Eve.

The obsessive infatuation between Eve and Villanelle, both of whom have changed each other, is the biggest draw. There was kissing, stabbing, dancing and shooting – this time a slap in the face, but we still hope they move in together in the suburbs.

In a brilliant nod to the ’90s, they glimpsed each other through an aquarium, a nod to Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. Could this be a hint that their relationship will end in passionate tragedy? Famed for its grisly set-piece murders, this season shows no sign of ending.

The moment Villanelle plunged the vicar’s daughter’s head into the water, nearly drowning her, was stunning. A cat named Lucifer didn’t get off so easily.

It’s still incredibly funny. “May the Lord cause you to thank me sincerely,” Villanelle prays. Their outfits don’t impress that much, but a devout Christian life will do that to a girl.

Elsewhere, Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) has to make sandcastles, Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) enjoys a head massage, and Villanelle plays Jesus in drag, wearing gold thigh-high boots and eating popcorn, in a bizarre scene that only Killing Eve can get away with.

The plot thickens, the hunt for the Twelve gathers momentum and Eve has already been beaten up by one of her recruits.

But Eve is going bad, Villanelle can’t be good, and I have a bad feeling that together they will be unstoppable…
