Killing Eve Episode 3: Get a Closer Look at the Team Behind Season 3 and More
In this week's episode of Killing Eve, Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) are on a collision course. When Villanelle is assigned a new job in London, she initially balks at the prospect of getting so close to Eve. Soon, however, she relishes the opportunity to show off how she's "moved on" from their relationship. But when Eve makes a surprising move, it throws the both of them emotionally off course.
Villanelle realizes something is missing from her life, but she's not sure what. She comes to Konstantin with a bizarre request in this week's "OMG Moment." Plus, discover how Villanelle reacts to Eve's shocking impulse in a sneak peek scene of Sunday's all-new episode -- but not before meeting the important creators that help bring Killing Eve to life in this week's Closer Look. Dive deeper into Episode 3 below:
Konstantin returns to his bed after a stressful day. But his relaxing night of sleep is disturbed by Villanelle, who tears off the covers she was hiding under and screams at him. Konstantin chastises her about the danger to his heart before he goes right back to bed and wraps himself in the covers.
"Don't you want to know why I'm in your bed?" Villanelle asks, but he doesn't even care. Konstantin has a lot more pressing matters on his mind, like tracking down the lost six million euros from the Twelve's bank accounts. "You will never find six million in a day," says Villanelle. "Not even if you sold both of your kidneys."
As Konstantin tries to sleep, she wonders aloud, "What kind of baby do you think I was?" She ponders if she was a cute baby. But Konstantin doesn't care for Villanelle's musings. "I've seen a photo of you," he says, "You had a strange head. Bulbous. Unnatural."
This offers more questions than answers for Villanelle. She poses a surprising request for her former handler: "I want to find my family." Watch Villanelle turn the tables on Konstantin by offering him a mission in this memorable scene from the latest episode.
In this behind-the-scenes video, meet the team of creatives who work diligently to bring the series to life. Starting with Suzanne Heathcote, the new lead writer for Season 3, Sandra Oh explains that Heathcote cut her teeth by playwriting in New York before moving to television. "She's done an incredible job weaving everything together across the season," remarks director Shannon Murphy about Heathcote's work. "She's really successfully interrogated the characters on a very primal level and asked who they really are and what their really deep desires are," adds director Miranda Bowen.
Also new to the team this year is costume designer Sam Perry. "Sam is just a genius," gushes executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. "Villanelle's costumes this year have just been so cool," says Jodie Comer, who plays Villanelle. "They're not just costumes for costumes sake," explains director and executive producer Damon Thomas, "They're very much tied into the character and what the character is doing at any particular moment."
Sam Perry speaks to the rush, both physical and emotional, of working on the show: "I really, like everybody else, absolutely loved the first series and wished that I could've done it. As soon as the process starts and you're suddenly doing it, you don't have any time to worry about it, and it's kind of only now that you think, 'Wow, I did that.'"
Production designer Laurence Dorman is a Season 2 alum, returning again to create stunning set pieces for the new season. ""As production designer, I'm responsible for everything that goes in front of the camera pretty much, some things more than others," Dorman explains.
One of the longtime veterans of the show, acting as the director of photography for all three seasons, Julian Court also gets some time in the spotlight. "[Julian] is so fundamental to the look and feel of the show," explains Woodward Gently. "Julian is an artist," adds Fiona Shaw, who plays Carolyn. "He's the one who's really envisaged a way of shooting it, lighting it, shaping it."
The crew also introduces the season's four directors: Terry McDonough, Miranda Bowen, Shannon Murphy and Damon Thomas. "There's something about Killing Eve that combines raw sexiness with a sophistication that is really seductive for a director," says Bowen.

While researching at the Bitter Pill with Bear (Turlough Convery), Eve (Sandra Oh) gets a surprise package. It turns out to be a cake delivery. "Is it your birthday?" asks Bear. But Eve knows something is amiss.
She takes the box of cake up to the roof before she looks inside. This isn't the average birthday confection. The cake is in the shape of a bus -- the same bus in which Eve kissed Villanelle during their brutal fight.
What kind of message is Villanelle sending? See what Eve does with her birthday present in this sneak peek scene.
