When She States the Obvious
Sometimes Villanelle's banter leads to a line that just perfectly encapsulates everything you're feeling. Like when she's trying to avoid talking about Eve on Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 3, "Don't I Know You?"
When She's Bored at the Museum
Villanelle can be very childlike, so it's no surprise that Konstantin's attempt to take her to a museum results in her screaming about how boring it is.
When She Has a Way Out
Villanelle was just a little too happy when the guards showed up after her latest murder on Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 6, "Take Me to the Hole."
When She Casually Plays Off a Mistake
Villanelle plays it cool a lot of the time, especially when she's called out for her showmanship. Maybe the body count was a little bit higher on this particular job, but Villanelle is not copping to the other four murders.
When She's Bored AF in a Hotel
Who hasn't sat in a hotel room and been bored by having nothing to do? Villanelle knows that feeling all too well.
When the Problem Solves Itself
Who can forget that poor schmuck soul who Villanelle flirted with on Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 2, "I'll Deal With Him Later"? Konstantin was convinced she should kill him and she was ready to do it, but casually leaving around her aerosol gas perfume worked nicely too.
When She Overdoes a Party
Villanelle might view Konstantin as a father figure, but he definitely doesn't see her the same way. Still, the effort she puts into a "birthday" celebration for him is pretty adorable.
When She Casually Eats Bruschetta
Villanelle's gotta go to work, but she also knows she should eat to maintain her blood sugar. Casually eating bruschetta at the start of Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 1, "Nice Face," before going to murder someone is a mood we can definitely get behind.
When She Has One Thing On Her Mind
Villanelle might act like a child, but she also has a job to do. She likes her job. So it's no surprise that when something gets in the way of her doing her job, she gets a little miffed.
When She Sees a Ghost
We've all be there, you're casually browsing online looking for intel on something and then you come across something...distressing. That was Villanelle's reaction to finding out she'd met Eve Polastri before, and showed viewers that even assassins get a little spooked at times.
When She's Caught Enjoying the Finer Things
No secret, Villanelle loves nice things. Seeing her compose herself and tenderly stroke the duvet before she kills her first victim on Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 1, "Nice Face," is the perfect example of this mood.
When She's Lonely
Admit it, your heart broke for this chaotic assassin at the end of Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 4, "Desperate Times." Watching her sob in the bathroom thinking that Eve had really forgotten about her was heartbreaking.
When She Puts Her Hands in Her Pockets
Villanelle is the type of lady who loves a good pocket. We can see why! She looks like a boss when she sweeps her jacket back and rests her hands n her pockets.
When She Doesn't Understand a Sweater
You're having dinner with Eve but you're entranced by her sweater attached to her shirt. Priorities, Villanelle!
When She Deals with Children
Villanelle's had exactly one dealing with a child so far, and it was Konstantin's daughter. Still, the interactions they had were pretty priceless, even if Villanelle was only using the kid as leverage.
When She's Not Bothered by a Trashed Apartment
That scene on Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 8, "God, I'm Tired," when she realizes that Eve's come into her apartment and trashed it, but her only reaction is to ask if she had a party and do a little dance is iconic.
When She Licked Konstantin's Hand
Villanelle wasn't psyched about going to a Russian prison, but she had some fun when it came to saying goodbye to Konstantin. In an instant, she went from being melancholy to licking his hand. Classic Villanelle.
When She Told The Instagrammer To "Get a Real Life"
Tell me you didn't cheer when Villanelle said this to someone who asked to take her picture. Sure, she looks amazing, but having a gorgeous dress on isn't consent for photos.
When She Commented on Niko's Mustache
One thing that will never get old about Villanelle is her ability to be blunt. When Villanelle went to Oxford on Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 5, "Smell Ya Later," she had some shade to throw at Niko and his mustache. (And we can't say that she's wrong. It's a rather unimpressive mustache.)
When She Called Bullshit
Villanelle's theatrics even extends to her personal interactions. This moment when she sniffed the air on Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 3, "The Hungary Caterpillar," perfectly exemplified her skepticism and mistrust.
When She Says "I Love You"
Her relationship with Eve is pretty fricken complicated. It doesn't get any easier at the end of Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 8, "You're Mine," when she starts shouting at a confused and frightened Eve.
When She Ran Over Her Ex
Running over her ex after they work on a job together is just another day on the job for Villanelle. The moment is pontificated by a casual "oops" and a shrug.
When She Worried About Her Funeral Photo
Afterlife decisions are important and don't stop just because you're on the run from The Twelve and MI-6. The least two slightly sociopathic ladies can do for each other is make sure they each have a good funeral photo. That's just common decency.
When Her 'Me Time' is Disrupted
Chill out with a face mask. Get a phone call from your handler. Fight with handler about something you definitely did but won't own up to. Get so frustrated by the phone call you rip the cord out of the wall. Yep. Relatable.
When Her Jokes Go As Planned
Only Villanelle would feed someone pills, tell them they're poison, and then laugh as they tried to purge them from their system.
When She Knocked Over a Kid's Ice Cream
Our first introduction to Villanelle showed her knocking a little girl's ice cream bowl into her lap. Such a simple moment, but told us everything we needed to know about her character. And, be honest, you'd like to do that to at least one person you've seen or observed in your life.
When She Rests After a Hard Day's Work
No secret that Villanelle really enjoys her job, but after the euphoria of killing someone wears off she needs a break too.
When She Threw a Book in a Jerk's Face
Admit it, you've wanted to throw a book at someone in your life. This moment between Villanelle and Aaron Peel during Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 6, "I Hope You Like Missionary!" is everything someone who knows their stuff could possibly want.
When She Casually Adds Charges to Her Bill
Another enviable quality of Villanelle is how easily she charges her shopping to her room. The suave casualty with which she tells the receptionist that the charges can be added to the bill is a goal.
When She Screams at the Switchboard
Who isn't frustrated by switchboard operators or robotic answering systems? This scene from Killing Eve Season 2 Episode 2, "Nice and Neat," is completely relatable and iconic.
When She Dressed Up for an Evaluation
The iconic pink dress that Villanelle wears in Killing Eve Season 1 is the mood of someone who just wants to feel pretty. The way the dress is sprawled all around her makes it look like an inviting halo around this deadly assassin.
