    I feel like people on this thread have exaggerated the performance here. Comer was good, the final scene very good, but I don’t think this secured her a nomination, certainly doesn’t have her compete with Linney and across the season Oh’s work remains superior.

    I totally agree with this. Comer had a good performance, but I really think it is noteworthy only towards the end and I think fans are exaggerating the performance. It may be enough to secure her a nomination, especially with her reputation as a former winner, but to me is not really enough to get her the Emmy especially with Linney and Colman.

    I really don’t get why Villanelle needed a stand alone episode since it doesn’t explain anything about the Twelve or other unresolved plot lines. It just seems like its catering to the overwhelmingly 90%+ Villanelle fans on Twitter. Like others have mentioned though, this likely would be her episode to submit because it excludes all the other series regulars and the other co-lead entirely in the way that Lorraine Bracco was likely impacted by Edie Falco’s performance in her submissions for “The Sopranos.” It also could be foreshadowing an Eve-less show for Season 4 and beyond, since she’s not even mentioned once. Heathcote was strongly insinuating that Villanelle or Eve could be left off the show.

    I know some are saying she deserves a second Emmy, but I really feel that Oh deserves to get her first before she gets her second. Oh doesn’t have a lot of chances left. This may even be her last full season because of Heathcote’s comments, but I really doubt that Oh has a chance since she’s way down in the odds. I am starting to think it may be time for Oh to move on. Also, they don’t really give 2nd Emmys that much anymore. The last 3 were Margulies, Danes, and Close. I don’t really have an issue with last year’s Emmy because Comer’s performance and Fennell’s script were very consistently good for her character. I think most people would agree that the script this year for her character has not been as consistent and deep in the first 4 episodes, which obviously then impacts the performance.

    I think the script was a problem with Oh’s character last year. It seems like Oh and Shaw have an edge in the script, although the script overall seems strange. I think one of the reasons why she won last year was because the social media fans were extremely passionate and vocal about how they thought she was being robbed of nominations/wins and how brilliant her performance was, when it was Oh only who was nominated for Season 1 and won the the other non-Emmy awards. That “robbed” sentiment doesn’t exist this year because she is the reigning Emmy winner.

    It baffling to me that the showrunners have not decided to put eve and villanelle together more this season. To only have them together for one scene this whole season is just ridiculous especially for a third season. When they are together the show shines the most

    The last train scene was good for Comer but otherwise terrible episode. It literally adds nothing to the narrative and characterization. The Handmaid’s Tale, Westworld, Killing Eve and even Big Little Lies to an extent; what’s happening to all these shows which had impeccable freshman seasons?!

    The first half was very comedic in my opinion. Some great one liners by Comer. Her facial expressions are just amazing. The last 10 minutes were outstanding and should definitely secure Comer her nomination (I agree that it does not secure a win at all).

    This episode was by far the worst episode of the entire series. At the first place we never got a proper reason for Villanelle wanting to see her family. Then we are introduced to her family and it still contributes nothing to Villanelle and the story overall. Her final dialogue with her mom was very forced and poorly developed. The darkness insider her, seriously? As if she is a Disney villain… Burning the house was only for the shock value and nothing more. Jodie Comer didn’t have enough scenes to showcase her acting both in this episode and the season overall. I’m very surprised to see people comparing her S3 performance to Laura Linney. With each episode I become more certain that both Oh and Comer will not be nominated at all. This season is just so bad. Personally the core of this show’s story is Eve and Villanelle’s unexplainable and complicated feelings to each other and how their repressed feelings affect their lives. PWB and Emeral Fennell both created their seasons with this aspect in mind. It’s so absurd to me that this season’s showrunner is more interested in the mystery side of the story (The Twelve) rather than developing and adding more depth to this unique relationship between these two interesting women. That’s why adding Carolyn and Konstantin’s POV to the show is not a good idea. Both Eve and Villanelle are starting become the supporting actresses of the show.

    Jesus, I’ve seen smear campaigns less harsh than this comment. It was a perfectly solid, entertaining episode and Jodie Comer was great as always

    This episode was a waste of time. What’s the purpose of an episode when every viewer is absolutely aware of how it would pan out? And it happened just as expected. Beat by beat.

    Another thing: It didn’t help Comer, whom I normally like a lot, to face an actress (the one portraying her mother) who absolutely stole the show by just looking at her in their confrontation scene. If anything remotely interesting happened in this episode, it was the guest actress in the confrontation scene. The rest was garbage.

    Not a fan of the show either but I seriously don’t understand these people. It’s okay to not like the show anymore and make valid arguments against it but some people are really pushing it. If they HATE it this much they should stop watching. They come here and spew so much ugly shit and ruin it for everyone who are still enjoying it.

    Your residential killing eve defender droping by to say we love to see Comer, Oh and  Wood in the top predictions. They’re happening, well one of them I’m sure, upset about Moore. I know the person thinking Fiona being the only nominee is confused af.

    I’m very surprised to see people comparing her S3 performance to Laura Linney.

    You can compare the train scene to how Wendy reacted to leaving Ben lol idk but the latter had a stronger impact on the plot.

    One thing which doesn’t get talked about is Killing eve’s previous noms i.e. production design and series got pretty neat cinematography too.

    Disagree with puck’s take on the ending as in my eyes it sounds of reducting to the simplest form. Disappointed on this episode nevertheless? That’s valid it was weird as sh*t. I give a 6/10 It could be shrunk to a 20 min arc while we ponder on I don’t know.. aftermath on Niko!?

    You know – I kept wondering who is the actress playing the mother because I thought that she was good and held her own.

    oh really? Well, it was the best episode of the season (together with 3×3) so I’m not surprised.
    The name of the actress who played the mother was Evgenia Dodina, a lagend in her own right. It was only fair that someone as amazing as her would play the mother and I’m not surprised that Comer was so happy with that casting.

    I used to love this show, and while I enjoyed this episode and thought Comer had some great moments, I still have been struggling with this season. I no longer get excited to watch new episodes and only have it on when I am folding my laundry and then force myself to finish the episode. It’s only the shell of the show it once used to be and I don’t see this season getting any better for the final 3 episodes.

    Yes, I agree with this. Also I want to say that I really find nothing wrong with this comment at all. We need to allow people space to express their opinions and criticisms about the show. Otherwise, if we’re so afraid of stepping on eggshells, we’ll just end up exchanging pleasantries and nothing much. If comments bother people so much, then maybe this isn’t the forum to read? Certainly, I have had critical opinions on the script side of the show as well, but I want to be able to express constructive criticism without worrying about offending people.
