    The interaction between the villain is feeling Luther-ish.

    I love this series. It does fill the Orphan Black hole.

    Lots of great stuff on this episode! Carolyn getting Frank to talk by consoling him, and Kenny is her son LOL! Eve too tempted by her new wardrobe. But how she relaxes in her home knowing Villanelle can show up anytime...and she does! And then she call her a psycho to her face??!!

    But the end! Turns out her ex is still alive and asking her boss if he's part of The 12?!! WTH is wrong with her? Oh right...she is a psycho!

    I'm really enjoying this series. I haven't once thought of Sandra Oh as Cristina Yang even though that was my favorite character on Grey's Anatomy.

    While I still like this series, the fact that Eve is so oblivious that a contract killer is obsessed with her is kinda infuriating. If Eve would have taken this threat seriously, you could argue that both Bill and Frank would still be alive.

    I think it's been established that Eve is in over her head. Her job at MI5 was to collect data. She was an assistant to Bill. She became obsessed with the case because she thought the killer was a woman and nobody believed her. Now she's in way over her head as people around her are being killed.

    At least Eve doesn't have to worry about losing her knob.

    Was going to say something about another part of a door that she COULD lose, but thought better of it :)

    True. Hopefully the storyline brings Eve up to speed quickly though. I want to see a battle of wits, not a bumbler against a seemingly invincible contract killer.

    I wonder if that's what Season 1 is about, and Season 2 is the battle of wits?

    But he was an analyst in a series written by a guy who fetishized the military. Eve Polastri is an analyst in a series written by a guy who describes himself as "author and dance critic." ;)

    And how many fight scenes look like they are choreographed by dance teachers. So there! ;)

    Depends which Jack Ryan, I’d say the Harrison Ford version was a bit girly man. %)

    So does Russia really have the worst prison security in the planet?! Villanelle easily got to Nadia. Who I felt really bad for.

    And looks to me like Konstantin is just trying teach her a lesson. Pretty sure when Oksana gets out, he's her next target.

    I have really enjoyed this series but this episode just seemed too contrived to me. Putting Oksana into a prison to get another prisoner just seemed very cliche, and a bit out of her character. As we found out she's been a prisoner before, she had to be aware of what might happen if she gets herself locked up. Of course "The 12" played on her cockiness to get her into that situation.

    Eve is still in way too deep. I really don't think the understands what's going on around her.

    The shift in facial expression from "fun chase" to "predator cornering its prey" was chilling. Absolutely incredible acting on Comer's part; a high point of a mesmerizing performance throughout.

    And Eve passing her in the prison yard, but not seeing her because her head was being forced down by the guard.

    Freaking out over being stuck in solitary nicely emphasized how much she likes being around people (messing with them).
