Is Konstantin Villanelle’s Father?
If you’ve seen Killing Eve, you must remember Carolyn, the M15 Boss in Russia. Viewers have seen there was something romantic between Carolyn and Konstantin. And they also know that he has a soft corner in his heart for Villanelle. Konstantine was even trying to protect Villanelle from a threat that she did not know about. Maybe Carolyn is her mother.
Meanwhile, Carlyn wanted Eve off from Villanelle’s case so bad and wanted a wimpy agent to look into the case of Villanelle. With all this information combined, many Killing Eve fans are speculating that there is some connection between the three. There is a theory that Carlyn assisted Konstantine in faking his own death. And he, in fact, is the father of Villanelle. How much weight does the theory hold? We shall find out in Killing Eve Season 4.
Villanelle Kills Niko Polastri
Killing Eve fans have been keeping themselves busy in the meantime for the fourth season with multiple fan theories and speculations. One of these theories is Villanelle Kills Niko Polastri. The theory seems very plausible given the theme of the show, Two gay ladies in a chaotic world of espionage get obsessed with one another.
Viewers know that Villanelle definitely has some feelings for Eve, especially after she was stabbed. She loves someone who loves another person. And being as crazy as Villanelle is, it does not seem far-fetched she would want Eve to experience the emotional pain. Thus, Villanelle has more than enough reason to kill Niko. As killing him would also leave Eve emotionally vulnerable and alone.
