Killing Eve Fans Convinced Of Eve And Villanelle's Fate After Spotting Connection To Heartbreaking Films

We're still trying to recover after the first trailer for the final season of Killing Eve dropped earlier this week.

Naturally, fans have started analysing each frame of the two minute clip to find any hints about the fates of Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh).

Some Killing Eve viewers have noticed what appear to be references to two iconic films known for their doomed love stories and tragic endings.

Watch the trailer below:

A prominent scene teased in the trailer involves the pair looking at each other through a fish tank. Fans were quick to compare the scene to Romeo and Juliet's first meeting in Baz Luhrmann's 1996 film adaptation starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes

The teen film ends similarly to the original William Shakespeare play, with the young lovers dying after trying and failing to be together.

Later on in the trailer, Eve tells Villanelle about a fable about a scorpion and a frog. "They hook up?" the Russian assassin asks, to which Eve reponds: "They both die."

A clip of a blue convertible zooming towards the beach drew comparisons to Thelma & Louise, a 1991 crime film about two women who go on a road trip that ends in them both dying.

One fan posted a side-by-side picture compilation on Twitter with scenes from the Killing Eve trailer and the two films.

They said: "I’ve seen this film before and I didn’t like the ending……."

One fan responded to the theory with: “IT’S THE WAY I MADE THIS EXACT SAME CONNECTION STRAIGHT AWAY AHDHSHS”.

After realising the theory suggests both characters will die at the end, another fan said: “Dont do this to me”.

A third Twitter account said: “Not Thelma & Louise pls God no.”

Someone else quipped: “killing eve season 4 giving romeo and juliet realness.”

One person compared the references to the two films to the fable Eve mentions in the trailer: “This and the fable about the scorpion and the frog make me question if we will get a 'happy' ending or if they'll die.”

Another Twitter user pleaded: “I just want them to live... separately, or together, I truly don't care.”

While other fans were preparing for the worst. “Oh they are SO dead,” wrote one fan.

Should we start preparing our condolences now?!

Season four of Killing Eve will air on BBC One and BBC America on February 27.
