Killing Eve ended after 4 seasons final month, and it’s protected to say the ending was not popular with most followers. For a present that began off with a lot vital acclaim, it was unlucky to see it finish on a disastrous observe.
But earlier than I get into the nitty-gritty particulars of the Killing Eve collection finale, when you have not watched it, come again right here after you have got, since I wouldn’t need to damage something for you.
Here’s your SPOILER WARNING!
Okay, now that we’ve received that out of the way in which, let’s speak about that collection finale that relied on the “Bury Your Gays” trope. It was a really unusual solution to conclude issues after 4 seasons of Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) chasing one another. Honestly, most of us (together with the creator of the Killing Eve books, Luke Jennings) thought Eve and Villanelle would possibly get a fortunately ever after. Instead, Villanelle died, and issues simply…ended.
It was not the ending most of us wished, and now Sandra Oh is lastly talking out about it.
How Sandra Oh would have ended Killing Eve
Speaking with Deadline, Oh shared how she thought issues ought to have ended…and it’s miserable. “You should kill my character,” Oh had advised showrunner Laura Neal. “I thought that would be the strongest and the most interesting [ending].”
Um, I’m unsure I agree.
“Eve was starting to get into, like, a nihilistic place,” Oh defined. “And we’re like, ‘Let’s just continue that line and go straight into it.’ They came to me, and they said, ‘We can’t do it. We need to change it…Eve needs to live.’”
I believe a happier ending would have been higher after 4 seasons of turmoil and angst. Couldn’t we simply allow them to trip off into the sundown collectively as a contented couple? Sure, they’re not typical, however it might have been higher than Eve dying. I like Sandra Oh, however I don’t like the thought of Eve dying both.
They deserved a greater ending, and whereas there could also be a variety of rationales for why both of them wanted to die, I believe that the collection did this story a disservice. Sigh, all of us deserved higher!
