Critic reviews for Desperate Times
No matter what happens next, this episode certainly feels like danger is building. There is a tipping point coming, and it's not going to be pretty.
"Desperate Times," definitely feels like the series is getting back to its roots, but it's going to have to push through to deliver the same energy that it did in Season 1.
Killing Eve continues to press on its protagonists' soft spots, and it's for that reason "Desperate Times" works.
After a couple of episodes of near-miss moments, Killing Eve pulls its two leads apart again and sets them off on their own separate, but inevitably interconnected arcs.
