Konstantin sends Villanelle to finish Nadia off, but here’s where things get tricky: in addition to being a handler for the mysterious organization known as “The Twelve,” he’s also Russian intelligence and a friend of Carolyn Martens’. Soon, everyone converges on the prison: thanks to Konstantin, Carolyn and Eve are allowed an interview with Nadia. They offer her a deal in exchange for information, but Eve becomes suspicious of Carolyn’s connection with the Russians—and Villanelle kills Nadia before she can reveal the truth.

After killing the new handler, she goes to Konstantin’s residence to kill him as well, but he manages to get away.

Killing Eve TV Series | Key Facts


Sandra Oh portrays Eve Polastri, an MI5 agent confined at her desk who has a macabre and compulsive fascination with female assassins. Eve draws the attention of MI6 when she speculates that a woman may have killed a Russian politician recently, and she is assigned to work in an underground team that has been established to look into Villanelle.

Eve forms a special obssessive relationship with Villanelle throughout the show. They end up together on a boat’s deck before Carolyn shots Vaillanelle.

Eve fails to save her relationship with her husband due to her over-obssession with catching Villanelle. As a result, her husband Niko leaves her and ends up in a rehabilitation center where he gets assaulted by, Dasha, one of the gang members called the twleve whom Eve has been investigating.

Villanelle (Oksana)

Villanelle, whose name was inspired by a perfume, is a cunning, erratic, and extremely dangerous person who enjoys seeing her victims expire. She also has a tendency to become sexually attracted to older ladies with gorgeous hair. Her initial identity was Russian Oksana Astankova, a gifted linguist who was imprisoned in Moscow after killing and castrating the spouse of Anna, her language instructor and lover.

Beyond her terrible stabbing wound, Villanelle has more to be concerned about. She has repeatedly damaged her relationship with her previous employers, “the 12,” killing the new handler they sent and probably doing the same to Konstantin, her previous handler.

Villanelle eventually forms a mutually obssessive relationship with Eve. Villanelle recruits herself to work Eve and kills all members of the twelve group in the finale before she gets shot (probably by Carolyn).


The covert spy squad pursuing Villanelle was purportedly established by Carolyn, but as the series went on, it became increasingly difficult to discern the MI6 agent’s true intentions. The fact that she appeared to be friends with Villanelle’s previous handler, Konstantin, was unsettling enough, but it became even more unclear which side she is on when Kenny, Carolyn’s son, discovered proof of a long-term affair between the two.

Carolyn did a great deal to erode Eve’s confidence in her when she was in Russia. When she found out that Nadia, the team’s only lead and the main reason they traveled to Russia, had died, she didn’t seem to be phased. She told Eve that she had let Vladimir, her other Russian contact, take the blame for revealing information that Konstantin had allowed to leak. The most strange of all was when Eve discovered video of Carolyn meeting Villanelle in secret while she was incarcerated.

The show finale shows Carolyn talking over the walkie-talkie confirming the death of Villanelle after the latter got shot while with Eve. This confirms that Carolyn might be the top member of the twelve group.

The Twelve Group

The team Konstantin works for, who give Villanelle and other assassins her assignments. Villanelle was informed by Konstantin that he was not a “keeper,” hence he did not have their names. The Twelve were bribing Frank Haleton, who claimed that “there is a sequence, a pattern to these kills.” They are causing instability from the bottom up. According to Frank, “chaos” is the Twelve’s ultimate purpose. Taking a look at the targets they go after: dishonest lawmakers, mob lords, and military cyber hackers.
