'Killing Eve' Star Jodie Comer Talks More of Season Three & Says Villanelle Is 'Faced With A Lot of Stuff'

Villanelle (Jodie Comer) goes incognito as a delivery person in this still from the season three premiere of Killing Eve, which is back tonight, April 12.

Jodie spoke to EW about what fans could expect from the new season and what’s in store for Villanelle.

At the end of season two, Villanelle shot Eve (Sandra Oh) as she was walking away – however, Eve isn’t dead at all.

“[She's] trying to carry on with her life and trying to live a more normal life. It’s six months later. It wasn’t like in [season] 1 where we jumped into [season] 2 where we picked up from that moment. So time has passed and we see her trying to get on with things,” Jodie shared of the time jump and what’s going on with her character now.

She adds that “a big theme for Villanelle is her trying to gauge some sense of control. She is a very free spirit and she always seems to be under the thumb of this higher entity, whoever that may be. She’s really trying to shake that off — and she wants to be in charge of her own destiny in a way.”

“Her past definitely comes into play in a very, very big way,” Jodie continued. “I think it enables the audience to see her again in a different surrounding and kind of endearing and frightening. She’s faced with a lot of stuff.”

Jodie also spoke of the symbolism you’ll see of where Eve was shot and how it connects.

“It’s symbolic in a way that when Eve stabbed Villanelle in series 1, for Villanelle, Eve was a part of her in some way. She has this marking that was from her and was now a part of her,” she says. “…I think the biggest thing is that you’re faced with this constant reminder of your past and what it is that you’re dealing in the present. So I think it’s definitely symbolic.”

Killing Eve premieres TONIGHT, April 12 at 9/8c on BBC America.
