As we get ready for Killing Eve Season 4 Episode 6 on AMC+ next week, the intrigue revolves around Villanelle. Is the character still alive? Is that something for which we should realistically hope?

Remember that Villanelle was shot by an arrow at the end of the previous installment, and Eve thought she was gone for good.

Will Villanelle Live in Killing Eve Season 4 Episode 6?


Even though we don't know what the future contains, it feels like we can answer this question unequivocally yes. Consider this: would the producers really kill off one of their two most popular characters three episodes before the show's conclusion? It's illogical. Nonetheless, we believe Villanelle getting hit with an arrow is meant to be a significant turning point in the series.

Perhaps this causes Eve to address her feelings for her in a manner she hadn't previously. Or, assuming Jodie Comer's character gets back into fighting shape in Killing Eve Season 4 Episode 6, there's a legitimate potential the squad may band together and try to take out the Twelve collectively.

What is Helene Planning?

Of course, for a variety of reasons, we on the outside were never concerned about this. Consider the reality that killing Villanelle three episodes before the end of the series will infuriate everyone. Helene's purpose here could also have been to fool Eve into thinking Villanelle had left. It's analogous to Eve tricking Helene into believing her daughter had died when, in fact, she was OK.

Aside from the obvious story reasons, there's a good chance we'll see Villanelle emerge from the metaphorical ruins in Killing Eve Season 4 Episode 6. There were Villanelle moments in the teaser that we hadn't seen previously at the start of the season. Is it conceivable that those scenes aren't on the show at all, or that they were deleted from previous episodes? In theory, yes, but that seems rather unlikely.


We believe that most people in the Killing Eve universe believe Villanelle will survive – that is not the secret. It's more about how she gets by and what she does next.

Watch Killing Eve Season 4 Episode 6 on Apr. 6.
