    After spending time on the fish and chips with battered sausage his mum will not be pleased. Maybe she will make an off the books offer to Eve she can't refuse.

    (nor will silent woman in investigative journalism office be pleased, she could help Eve)

    I'm honestly angry about Kenny. He was one of the very few people you wanted to root for. Ugh. What a ****** start for me.

    I'm on the fence on this show since last season. And this was not a good start.

    So Eve is miraculous saved after being shot in the middle of nowhere?! And agree, I liked Kenny and sorry to see him go.

    Nothing miraculous about it...she was found by tourists.

    Who just happened to wander into a closed and padlocked site.

    Killing Eve is a well written spy story with multiple levels of deception, just because they said they were tourists does not rule out they were spooks who wanted to keep Eve alive.

    I do not know how Kenny's death is going to be recorded but whatever the verdict we shouldn't automatically believe or disbelieve it.

    The continued excellence of the writing was shown in the way Carolyn referred to the Foreign Office as "the other side".

    It also doesn't rule out that this was the new writing staff trying to dig themselves out of the hole the old writing staff had left behind...

    Each season has had a new show-runner and a new head writer.

    I think the new writing staff are doing an excellent job of resolving the challenges the old writing staff left them. The death of Kenny is regrettable but is a good way of resetting the game. If they wanted to I am sure they could have come up with a better way of digging themselves out of a hole, but they went with standard spycraft.


    How To Talk Like A Spy
    "Cover within a cover"

    If the backstop may not hold up, a spy may revert to this "Inception"-like phrase. In going to his or her cover within a cover, a spy would admit to doing something less serious than espionage, which would hopefully explain away the suspicious activities the spy was observed to be doing.

    Even though I hated the S1 finale, it was a great season. S2 not so much. Phoebe Waller-Bridge...that's her name.

    TiVo lists today “Managemenrt Sucks” as S3E3 and next week as S3E2.
    Wikipedia lists e2 as “Managemenrt Sucks”, so looks like the Guide (mine anyway) just has the numbering wrong.

    I don't think I will watch this show real time anymore. AMC was driving me nuts with the commercial breaks. They'd return for 15 seconds and go to commercials again. I think they did that 2 or 3x. On demand removes them.

    Anyhow, I wasn't thrilled with this episode. I'm not liking this Dasha character that they just brought in out of nowhere and Kenny being dead just doesn't sit right for me still. Even Villanelle with her new boy wasn't fun. Like we all didn't see him screwing up and her killing him coming the minute he got off the bus. Hope the season improves.

    I don't watch anything besides shows that don't have commercials live anymore.

    About this episode, it actually felt more like a classic Killing Eve episode to me. It's obvious to me that this season is going to be about finding who killed Kenny (you bastard!). Villanelle killing her new padawan is completely in character for her. She's got her way and when he deviated, he's of no use, she wastes him. I like that Konstantin still can driver her nuts. Their relationship is one of the show's better ones. You had to figure that Katherine (I think that's her name...the MI6 lady), would reach out to Eve once she got shut out of investigating the murder.

    Oh, I'm still loving the choice of music. I've come to realize that it gives the show an England in the mod 1960s feel. Villanelle dresses like a 1960s posh girl too.

    I can't remember the last time I watched something and had to sit through commercials. Not going to do that again. I'll rewatch this on demand later tonight. Maybe the weird commercial interruption dampened my enjoyment for this.

    Yeah, having to sit through commercials for anything but a live sporting event is something I just won't do by choice anymore. It's one of the ironies I'm finding is that people are paying for the privilege of watching live TV with commercials again via streaming services. We spent years trying to get to the point where we don't have to, and we are going back to watching them again :)
