In London, Eve is doing even more crazy things. She chops up enough vegetables to feed an army while chugging wine and blasting music. When her husband, Niko (Owen McDonell), comes home, she tells him she wanted to make him dinner to apologize for being a jerk and running away on a work trip. The only problem? The chicken she thinks is nearly done is still in the fridge and she has Villanelle’s blood under her nails. She tells him she got fired so they can go “back to being normal,” but soon she’s sobbing in her bathtub and doing a poor job of pretending she’s “fine.”
Villanelle is on the same track. With the help of her new friend, she procures a doctor’s lab coat, ID, and—much to her dismay—Crocs. She pilfers as many drugs as she can and is about to leave when she comes upon an unattended purse and tries to steal it. But, the owner comes back and assumes she’s the doctor. She tells the wife of a clearly dying man that his condition is improving…then steals her wallet. She returns to her room and asks her new friend for money before passing out onto the ground.
Eve also finds herself in a bind. After ignoring Carolyn’s calls for far too long, she finally meets her in the park for a frank conversation. Eve tells her she went to find Villanelle, but that she didn’t. (Um, lying about finding a sociopath? Interesting.) When Carolyn asks if she has any ideas or feelings about where she went, Eve pointedly responds, “No, no feelings.”
They leave, and Carolyn tells Eve MI6 is sweeping Villanelle’s apartment and that, oh, she’s hired again.
