    New trailer, this time from UK’s BBC One
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh1icDxH5R0

    Also, they are putting out there promos for each character and Carolyn’s good fortune seems to be…gone lol

    BBC also revealed what character Gemma Whelan is playing and my jaw hit the floor, because on paper, this looks like a perfect casting.

    Why is the British press reviewing only one episode when the North American press got five? There is a spoiler embargo on this season and it is more justified than I expected because I was genuinely and repeatedly surprised by the twists this season. It is further admirable how the new head writer actually has Eve acting rationally (sometimes). I was bored between the twists, but I also tired of this show during the first season, so I am not the best judge of its quality if you are a fan of the show. I do get a kick out of Constantin, although I am confused about his character’s position, as Carolyn regards him as an ally, despite being Villanelle’s handler. I was not going to spoil this so explicitly, but IndieWire already did, so here goes: Jodie Comer is the only series regular in the fifth episode. I am intrigued to see how the show handles the fallout in the final three episodes from the non-Villanelle story in the first four episodes of the season, but it might just be time to put Eve out of her misery instead. As I am dubious on whether the show is an improvement from last year and the critics seem to agree, I am just going to default to sticking with what I was predicting for the show this year before I watched any of this season.

    season 3 received some bad reviews, is the season really bad? (Even worse than season2?)

    I find it interesting that a producer said the show could continue without one of the two leads, a few months later Sandra Oh gets cast in a Netflix series. What if s3 ends up being her last and the show officialy becomes Jodie Comer’s in s4? Although the show remains called Killing Eve.

    I wonder if you may be onto something. Sandra’s done a lot of animated work recently as well as been cast in the new Netflix dramedy, which is only six episodes. It is uncertain as to whether that is a limited series or a multi-season series as well as a 30 minute or 1 hour show. It is hypothetically possible to do the new show in “Killing Eve’s” off season, which is typically December/January to summer, and leaves time for everyone to pursue other projects.

    We also know the show has been renewed for Season 4, but them sidelining Eve again (removing her in Episode 5) is ominous. The correct rumors that circulated that “Killing Eve” had been renewed for Season 4 also mentioned that both Sandra and Jodie had verbally agreed to it. The social media buzz on Twitter is totally lopsided in favor of Jodie and Villanelle, and that may be a big factor in which Villanelle appears to be turning into the show’s sole lead and focal point.

    If this is true, it’s extremely unfortunate, because then Sandra’s Emmy chances will disappear once again, just like with Season 2, when the shortage of Villanelle-like great scenes likely cost her the Emmy. If Sandra leaves or the show ends, whichever ends up happening first, Sandra may still has no Emmy. I’m going to wonder whether making it a limited series would have been a better idea and her Emmy chances would have been stronger there.

    The reviews for Season 3 are not good. The TV Guide review is 2.5/5.0, has spoilers, but I will say the ending paragraph gives a hint as to why the critics have fallen out of love with “Killing Eve.” : “..you know sometimes you make a copy of a copy, it’s not quite as sharp as, well, the original? That’s what Killing Eve now feels like: a copy of its former self. The edges are now duller, the lines less distinct. If there was ever a show that would have benefited from being a limited series, it is Killing Eve.”

    I still enjoy the show and will continue to watch it, but I suspect critics are not as kind because it appears like they’re just adding filler material and stretching it as much as they can like a pretzel. A lot of shows  have this problem. Even some episodes of “The Crown,” which I love, feel like filler before they get to the juicy stuff.

    So here’s what I got to say. Eve is an decent character being propped up by its actor. The show can easily do a spin off with Villanelle as she is the focus, will the audience be happy with that? No as it’s Sandra playing her. What I want to know is why do people on here want Sandra to win an Emmy so bad? Is it because she was robbed of being Christina yang?

    When Sandra was competing against Maslany, Foy, Moss and Russell (my stand outs) you, the emmy experts, are going to tell me she had the better performance?

    There was even arguments of Jodie being ahead in the public eyes  but she didn’t have the name recognition. It’s truly a crime she didn’t get one for greys and iconic roles do tend to be snubbed unfortunately i.e Cersei and Buffy but she really is playing the same character with Eve.

    That just leads to more honorary wins for others in the future. In her post greys anatomy emmys runs, many  performers  in her category outperformed her including the eventual winners.

    the sad thing is her best chance to win was season 1 especially since she won all the sag,golden globe, and critics choice after losing the Emmy to Claire foy. Killing eve was meant to be Sandra oh comeback and instead The newcomer Jodie took over as the lead.

    But apparently it’s a flop before an episode has yet to air? Agenda!

    Last season, the reviews were very strong but buzz for the show started losing steam quickly. This season may be the same, maybe it’ll be the opposite, but it had a strong Emmy showing last year and there’s a chance it proves that wasn’t a fluke with this season.

    And what about situations where Sandra was clearly the best in her category? She could have taken Emmy at least twice for Grey’s Anatomy, and she had an Emmy-worthy material from start to finish in that show. A few people only seem to highlight that many were better than her in the last two years. So what about the occasions when the far weaker contenders won over her? Then why can’t Sandra win against the “strong”? The truth here is that Hollywood, in general, is very racist towards Asian performers. And they would rather reward Sandra’s white co-stars (Heigl, Comer), even if she is the front-runner to win. I mean it’s pretty subjective to judge performances, but it’s a very weird thing to think that Sandra Oh didn’t deserve an Emmy during her career.

    I respect Jodie, Fiona, and the rest of the talented cast. However, there’s a lot of TV and movies out there and not enough time to watch everything. I only started watching because of Sandra Oh and if she were to leave the show, I would stop watching. Period.

    Sandra, as an Asian actress almost in her 50’s, has fewer opportunities than a white actress like Meryl Streep or Jodie. It’s great for Jodie that her career is taking off and she’s getting to work with some huge movie stars like Ryan Reynolds in Hollywood, but Sandra will never be offered the same roles, because of her race and age. She struggled for many years since she left Grey’s Anatomy, and she didn’t get an Emmy nomination again until Killing Eve. Sandra’s primarily a television actress and has paid her dues. It’s not the end of the world if Sandra doesn’t win an Emmy, but I think to me, its relevance is more that it’s a visual marker of the lack of great roles for non-white actors and when there are, the deep reluctance and hesitation to actually acknowledge them. That’s why it’s deeply troubling. So Jane Lynch gets 5 Emmys, Allison Janney gets 7, Julia Louis-Dreyfus gets 8, and Sandra Oh gets 0? Does that make sense?

    I also strongly disagree that other actresses “outperformed” Sandra or that if Sandra wins, it’s a “honorary” award. If you think everyone always outperformed Sandra Oh, maybe that’s because of your bias or preference for certain types of roles or performers. Someone with 10 Emmy nominations got 10 undeserved nominations? If it’s the case that everyone outperformed Sandra, then why did Sandra sweep the GG, Critics Choice, and SAG for Season 1? I disagree that those three organizations would just give her these awards out of charity (which some seem to be implying) when they didn’t even nominate her for Season 2.

    Is it “outperforming” or is it that the role of Eve Polastri is much more subtle and less over the top than Villanelle? It’s a role that’s designed to be a polar opposite to Villanelle – law enforcement vs. assassin, muted neutral clothing vs. over the top bright costumes, married woman with a home life vs. single woman always on the run, etc. It reminds me more of a role akin to what got Casey Affleck the Oscar a few years back. A super subtle role of a deeply conflicted person that anchors the show and provides a counterbalance to the wildness and lawlessness of the other co-lead.
