Killing Eve viewers were left ‘in tears’ after an emotional series finale in which Eve and Villanelle decided to ‘run away from each other’.
The ‘will-they-won’t-they’ storyline that dominated the plot of this series seemed to end when Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh) were back to back on London Bridge and agreed to walk away and “never look back.”
However, in the final moments of the episode, Villanelle and Eve turned back and looked at each other – suggesting the two characters could end up together.

The promise of a future relationship delighted fans, who begged for the next series – which has already been confirmed – to start with the two characters together.
Others praised the emotional vulnerability of the moment, with a tweet: ‘Imagine what Villanelle thought at the time before turning around, knowing that all her life she knows is rejection of everyone she loves and STILL a chance and hoped she would be proven wrong … and for once she was. ‘
Another said, “This scene gave me hope. They didn’t keep walking, they both stopped. They both turned around. They cannot leave. ‘
A third wrote, “unpopular opinion, but it was better than a kiss.”
The episode tied up loose ends of the series, including revealing Konstantin as Kenny’s apparent killer. Security footage showed that Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) arrived at the office hours before his death and met Kenny (Sean Delaney).

Eve admitted, “When I try to think about my future, I see your face over and over.” Villanelle wondered if she ruined Eve’s life and asks if she thinks she’s a monster.
Eve asked Villanelle for help to “make it stop,” referring to how she can’t stop thinking about the hit man. In response, Villanelle told Eve to stand back to back with her and walk away.
Both women were seen with tears in their eyes before turning to look at each other with a smile.
To talk with Entertainment weekly about how the series ended, producer Sally Woodward Gentle said the decision had been made not to fall into the trap of more violence.
“I think they were both really attractive to have an honest conversation, which we rarely see – especially with the revelation in the earlier scene that they were both complicit in someone else’s death,” she said.
And also, for Eva to say, “You have to release me. I can’t stop thinking about you. And for Villanelle to say, “Well, it’s very easy. You just walk away. “They run away and Eva turns around with Villanelle, and I think you can see in her that she knows Eva will turn around.
“She knows that Eva will look at her. Is that point scoring, or is it actually something much more fundamental than that? ‘
