Season 4 of Killing Eve has come to an end, and the series finale has left many VillanEve fans split.
The series follows Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), an MI6 intelligence officer, as she pursues international killer Oksana Astankova (Jodie Comer), also known as Villanelle. The women develop an unhealthy obsession with one another.
Villanelle works for a mysterious, dark organization known as The Twelve, and Eve and Villanelle eventually team up to kill the gang as part of their distinct missions.

What exactly happened at the conclusion of Killing Eve?
Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) ultimately kiss in the Killing Eve series finale. They then board the Queen Dixie yacht to infiltrate a gathering of The Twelve, Eve appearing as a wedding officiant for two guys who are partying aboard the vessel (almost totally ruining their entire wedding in the process).
While this is going on, Villanelle is murdering the members of The Twelve in a less-than-methodical manner.
While it looks, at least at first, that Eve and Villanelle will finally be able to live their lives on their own terms, a sniper shoots Villanelle in the back, sending her and Eve tumbling into the River Thames.
They can’t get back to each other because of the river current, and blood is all around them in the water.
Carolyn then stands back from the scene, clearly indicating that she orchestrated Villanelle’s murder — but she believes Eve is also dead. Following that, we watch Villanelle’s dying minutes below, followed by Eve breaking through the surface alone and screaming.
Heavy? Yes. Satisfactory? Not everyone will agree. The program was condemned for slipping into what is known as the “bury your gays” trope: Villanelle was killed almost as soon as four seasons of what many regarded as queerbaiting culminated in Eve and Villanelle finally getting amorous.
This is in stark contrast to the books that inspired the series, in which Oksana and Eve effectively live happily ever after outside of Russia’s St. Petersburg.
“It was incredibly challenging to find the best ending,” head writer Laura Neal said of the conclusion to Elle. To be honest, we talked a lot. We were continually debating, “What is the truth of these characters’ journeys’ endpoint?”
What is the truth of the endpoint if we look at where Eve and Villanelle started and what has occurred to them throughout the four seasons? It would have been easy to make it feel maudlin, or to go entirely the other way and have it feel too humorous, I believe.
As a result, finding the perfect balance between the two of them felt crucial.”
