Review

The League of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson takes over writing duties for what is probably the best episode so far. It’s filled with sly little LoG touches and piercing shafts of very black humour as Villanelle is recruited to do a special job for Eve.

Jodie Comer as the laughing assassin is at her most playful and funny as she shrugs on a new persona, that of a slightly spaced-out, entitled New Yorker who goes under cover to get close to chilly , all-seeing, all-knowing tech wizard Aaron Peel. There’s an excruciating dinner party at Peel’s house of glass as he, his sister and Villanelle prod, poke and stab at each other’s insecurities.

Eve is supposed to be running the op, but also heavily distracted by her husband Niko and his friendship with his sugar-brained, dim and flirty colleague. Things get nasty.

Summary

Villanelle uses her unrivalled infiltration skills to immerse herself in the world of a new target. With their relationship on the rocks, Eve and Niko confront each other about their future, and it becomes apparent that Niko may finally be at breaking point. Spy thriller, starring Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh.
