Act Out: ‘Killing Eve’
God, I’m Tired — the final episode script
As we can imagine, life as a spy can’t be easy, but it sure can be juicy. Popular drama series “Killing Eve,” gives us a behind-the-scenes look on how a dangerous mission can simply turn into an erotic love story between an M15 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and a very talented psychopathic assassin, Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Throughout the first season, the two brought us on an emotional roller coaster ride, making us laugh, gasp, and cringe. From Villanelle seeking attention when killing the latest mob boss or politician to Polastri using her femininity to physically get closer to her secret obsession, Villanelle to put an end to the string of murders. The bloody game of cat-and-mouse within each episode, frequently left us speculating what’s down the road for the two. That’s why the season’s finale “God, I’m Tired” wicked twist by the powerful Eve, shook us to the core, wondering what will occur in the next season.
The season finale kicks off with jealously taking over Eve, when she discovers that Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) interviewed Villanelle in the Russian prison without her knowing. “She had no right to visit Villanelle without asking me!” she says. “Why? Wonders Kenny. She’s not your girlfriend.”
While jealously bottles up within, she turns to Kenny to continue the search for Villanelle. Since the interview in the Russian prison, the bold, bloody murderer escapes the institution and takes Konstantin’s young daughter hostage, in hopes to kill her father.
“My dad is going to kill you in the face!” Konstantin’s daughter says. Villanelle responds with “No I am going to kill your dad in the face!” The taunt for taunt continues throughout their journey to find Konstantin, leaving them to fight like sisters, which created comic relief to the reoccurring horrific events.
As we all know, once someone gets close to Villanelle, they hopelessly and haplessly become under her frightful spell. Which leaves us even more dumbfounded by the great actions taken by Eve in the last scene.
Finally, Eve once again proved that she is a badass boss babe in the season finale when she finally breaks into Villanelle’s apartment and trashes the place just to share her indescribable love.
“I think about you all the time. I think about what you’re wearing and what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with. I think about what friends you have, what you eat before you work, what shampoo you use, what happened in your family. I think about your eyes and your mouth and what you feel when you kill someone. I think about what you had for breakfast. I just want to know everything,” Eve says.
So, just when you think the two are going to get down and dirty, Eve stabs Villanelle in the stomach. While the deed has been done, Eve immediately regrets her harsh decision and runs to find medical supplies. Giving Villanelle the opportunity to flee the bedroom.
Knowing that we won’t be saying goodbye to the hepatizing Villanelle just yet, it leaves us with unlimited questions that we hope to get answered in season two. What’s Eve’s next move? How badly is Villanelle injured? Will their love story go on? And lastly is Konstantin actually dead? I guess we have to wait to find out!

The same chemical was found in his lungs as the politician. I checked the other residents of the building, just because you're all in Russia and I have nothing to do. One of the apartments is paid for by the same account that paid Frank. I've sent you the address. Let me know when you want to go. Please take me with you! I'm dying here! Who was that? Nico. Well, that's a good reason to go home. I believe that you both handed over my private correspondence with Konstantin Vasiliev to Vlad, in exchange for Nadia. A dirty move but a good one.
