When Julien finally leaves the house, Villanelle tries to escape but every window and door is locked. Later, she calls a number, presumably her former employer’s, and says, “Hello. It’s Cher Horowitz. I failed my driving test.” The man on the other line tells her he can’t help. The problem? Her stab wound is super infected and she’s in duress. So, she asks the operator to connect her to M16’s Eve Polastri. She doesn’t make it through, but the call is recorded, and Carolyn plays it for Eve.
After carefully studying the Allister Peel case (remember the guy from the season two premiere who suffered a heart attack after an air bubble mysteriously entered his blood stream?), Eve decides Villanelle wasn’t his murderer. So, she and Carolyn go to his home to speak to his children and ask if they recognize Villanelle. They don’t, and Eve is so excited she was right she practically skips out of the house. She’s convinced it’s a new girl, but Carolyn thinks she must be a less attention-seeking seasoned killer. The team calls her “The Ghost.”
Back at Julien the good Samaritan’s house, he realizes Villanelle used the phone, so he takes it away and confronts her. He accuses her of using him (duh) and she quickly makes up a lie and tells him she was ordering him a cake to thank him. He apologizes, and she kicks him in the face. They break out into a fight and she ultimately stabs him in the carotid artery, saying, “This is what you get, Julien.”
