Feeling abandoned by Eve, Villanelle decides to go big for her next kill. She dons lederhosen and a pig mask. Just as she suspects, her target follows her right into the brothel she’s pretending to work at. Inside, she gets them started with some restraints, opens the curtains out to the street and then hangs him from the ceiling by his feet. She wants to humiliate him, and she easily accomplishes that when his wife stops outside the window and sees them. A crowd gathers to egg her on; they assume it’s fake. And then, she slits his belly and puts a pig mask over his face, just like the painting. We’ll file that away for our nightmares.
Afterward, Konstantin asks Villanelle how that particularly ostentatious murder felt. She essentially says it was boring and asks when they can go back to London. She wants to be near Eve again, but Konstantin says Eve doesn’t care about her anymore.
At MI6, Carolyn intercepts Eve’s mail and snags the postcard from Villanelle for herself. Once the mailroom clerk leaves, she makes a call to someone and speaks Russian. Then, she makes a show of asking Jess to go to Amsterdam to investigate a “bit of a butcher shop” of a murder (aka Villanelle’s work). Eve asks if it has anything to do with Villanelle, and Carolyn shoots back a question about how the Ghost investigation is coming. The answer? It’s going. Carolyn suggests she focus on the task at hand.
