The story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice. For Villanelle, the assassin without a job, Eve is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances…and perhaps a share of their souls.

Under the guidance of Suzanne Heathcote, the new (and third) head writer/showrunner, the third season is a jumbled and overstuffed hot mess of new characters, unfilled plot holes, weird time jumps, unexplained events and simply bad episodes. The laws of time and space are shredded, characters wander in and out to deliver expository dialogue, and worst of all Eve and Villanelle spend less time together than in any other season until the finale.
Coming off her unexpected Emmy win, Jodie Comer does well despite some drab and bizarre clothing and extremely unimaginative and illogical kills (death by tuning fork, anyone?). She doesn't seem entirely present in some scenes. Fiona Shaw as Carolyn Martens, the dodgy MI6 spymaster, is given more opportunity to show her emotional range as family matters and job pressures leave her more vulnerable than ever. Sandra Oh is supposedly the lead character (though she loses top billing on the DVD release to Comer), but Heathcote reduces Eve to supporting character status as she initiates nothing in the season and instead is put in positions where she is constantly reacting to what Villanelle and others are doing.
Oh and the rest of the cast are sidelined entirely for a solo Villanelle episode that stops the show's limited momentum dead in its tracks and in its aftermath, the Russian assassin loses all interest in her work (and Eve as well) while Eve becomes laser focused upon finding her again. Most of Eve's dialogue for the final episodes can be summed up in three words: "Where is she?'
I am a huge fan of Killing Eve, but the bloom is all but off this rose as the women at the heart of the story are mired in a lackluster rut of poorly executed plots (the resolution of the season's biggest mystery is eye-rolling in its badness) and a general sense of "Haven't we done this already?"
Yeah, we have and it was better in Season One and Two than the dreary Season Three. This is a plate of cold and lumpy mashed potatoes and more than a bit disappointing when it isn't simply dull.
