01x07 - I Don't Want To Be Free

You go in, find the doctor, kill Nadia and come out.

- We need to find who?
- Anna.

She is the wife of the man Oksana murdered.

The British. They're helping me.


He's working with them.

[EVE] I need you to look into any private correspondence

- between Konstantin...
- And?

Your mother.

- Are you going to kill me?
- Mm-hm.

Hello! Let me out. I did it.


Let me out!


- Oh.
- Oh. Good morning.

Have you just... been to breakfast?

Uh, no, but... um, I'm hungry.

- You?
- I'm heading there now.

Did you wear those clothes yesterday?

Listen, Vlad's had a change of heart.

They're giving us Nadia.

Oh, really? That's... great.

He's arranged for us to take her out today.

Fantastic. And, you know, I'm so sorry...

- Um, have you not...


Oh, good.

Hi. Yeah, I'm just with some...

Oh? How bad?

Oh, Christ.

Of course.

Where are you?

Alright, I'll, um, be right down.

Mm. Mm, well...

That's, at least, some good news.

Who was that?

Nadia has been murdered in prison.

The good news is the buffet's open.

Come on.

Did you have a late night, too?


What happened?

Nadia was attacked by another inmate.

- How?
- Just a fight.

Happens all the time in those places.

- Really?
- Mm.

Does it happen to valuable government sources

who are about to be removed from the prison?


We were supposed to take Nadia out today.

- This isn't a coincidence.
- You can see it is a blow.

For all of us.
But these sausages are so good.

But she was our only lead to the Twelve.

- Who did it?
- A little angry girl

called Natalie, I think.

Well, I want to meet her. Today.

- Now.
- Eve...

[LAUGHS] It's not possible.

If Nadia's death was linked to your interest in her,

I can't risk that happening again.

- So you think there's a link?
- No. But I have to...

- Please don't bullshit me.
- Eve!

We would appreciate any information

you feel you can pass on to us.

We will wait and hear from you about developments.


It's been good to see you again.

I advise you to have a sausage and go home.

You're welcome to stay but you haven't been invited.


♪ ♪

- [EVE] Kenny's here?
- I thought it was time

he got out of the office.

He can help with the Nadia business.

- We have to go to the prison.
- You can't.

We need permission and we've prodded them too much already.

They're sensitive about something.

- What if it was Villanelle?
- It's not all about her, Eve.

Don't pull that face.

- What face?
- That determined face.

It's not gonna happen. Stop it.

I can't.

Oh, thank God.



- Privet.

- Oh... a home away from home?
- Mm, good, isn't it?

Sorry about the smell.

How much money do you make doing this?

Give me one phone call and I will give you more money

than you earn in a year.


Just give it a second.

I can do it. Ooh, my tits are about to drop off.

Listen, it sounds mad, but what if the Twelve

put Villanelle back in the prison to kill Nadia?

- Alright, listen...
- Or she broke in there.

She can get in and out of anywhere.

It must have been easy for them to pay a random inmate

- to confess to the attack.
- Eve, there is a limit to...

Nadia must have had something decent on the Twelve.

We can at least ask if she contacted anyone

- while she was there.
- I'll check CCTV for visitors.

No. If we're found probing, it will make things worse.

We have to be above board now.

- We need to find Anna.
- Anna isn't relevant now.

Yes, she is.

Nadia said Anna was the reason Villanelle went to prison

- in the first place.
- She killed her husband.

- Yes, but why?
- Oh, Eve, please!

There's no record of Villanelle's family on file.

Anna is our only lead to how she ended up where she is.

If she is back in Russia, she might go to Anna's.

Big "if". And I'm not interested in how

Villanelle came to be a killer.

- Well, I am.
- Why? It doesn't help us.

You told me to find her.

That is the job that you gave me.


And I can take it away.

Kenny, will you please organize Elena

to fly you both back to London? There's nothing to investigate.

- Wait? What?
- But I just got here.

Thank you.

I'll follow on. I have a few things to tie up.

Just let me know when you're on your way.

What things?

Go back to London.

Traveling makes you rude.


Are we leaving?

- Of course we're not leaving.
- Good.

You need to see these.


Uh, my understanding of solitary confinement

is that it is solitary.



[MOCKING] Hello, Inga.

It's not even worth trying to speak to you, is it?

I decided not to google that.

Where did you find these?

She has a safe behind her bookcase in her study at home.

Are you okay about this?

About her being dodgy or about her being filthy?


I'm not... entirely surprised by either, to be honest.

Do you really have to give them to Vlad?

I have to give him something.

It might break his heart, though.

What? Why?

Uh... no reason.

- Could they... be coded?
- Maybe.

Go back over them with a fine-tooth comb.

- Sorry.
- Right.

I went through her old photos, too,

pulled out ones with any sexy men in Russia.


There. Oh, my God! There he is.

Younger, but him. They certainly look close.

Yeah. And here's Anna, too.

She's a language teacher in a school just outside Moscow.

Address. Number.

God, you're good.

Okay. I'm gonna head there now.


If you want to go back to London, I understand.

In fact, it may be best.

I'm going to get into the prison security cameras.

I'll scan for anyone matching Villanelle's description

and let you know if she comes up.

I won't tell Carolyn anything.

Okay. Are you sure?

It's fine. I'm a professional.

I know. Thank you.

- What?
- Excuse me.

Do you think I will be allowed to make a phone call?


You have a very pretty nose.

I don't like girls.

Well, you haven't tried this one.

Have you finished trying yet?

I'm assuming she isn't actually catatonic.

Inga will be not easily seduced, either.

A word of advice: Don't fall asleep.

Yes, she is.

What do you need to know now?

We think she had connections

with a very dangerous organization

and we're trying to work out why they would have chosen her,

to help get insight into them.

Well, she was a punctual student.

She was very good at languages. She liked attention

and she castrated and murdered my husband.

Would they have liked that?


I just need to talk to someone who knew her before.

Anything you can give me

could potentially protect other people from getting hurt.

I may have a few letters from her at home.

She always wrote to you in French?

Oh, she loved the French lessons the most.

Then English.

This... isn't "a few" letters, Anna.

This is...


She had a...


- Was it reciprocated?
- I was her teacher.

- I was married.
- But...

...was it reciprocated?

I'm sorry. I'm not judging you. I just...

I just need to know as much about her as I can.

We were told a new student was coming.

History of violence. Antisocial behavior.

Her mother was dead. Her father was a drunk.

She arrived at the school and...

...everyone stepped back.


So I stepped forward. Extra time. Extra lessons.

Extra love.

- What was she like?
- Oh...

She was so intelligent and funny.

- And rude.
- Hm.

I liked her.

What happened?

Well, then she wanted more lessons after school.

She was good at making you feel bad,

so she was here a lot.

And it was clear that she didn't like Max,

but I thought it was because she didn't trust men.

Well, how did he feel?

He thought she was cold.

I thought he was jealous.

No, but she sent me gifts.

Clothes, perfume.

She must have stolen them.

Expensive French designers.

Why do you think she did what she did to him?

She was quite literal.

Days before, she said that the only reason I loved him

was because he had a pen1s.

I told her that she might be right.


And then, that night, I came home

and she was in the apartment.

There were balloons everywhere and a huge cake,

and she was jumping around and...

then she showed me what she had done.

And she said it like it was a good thing.

I went mad.

I told her she was evil and crazy and...

...and then she was picked up by the police...

...and arrested.

And I lost my life.

I lost my Maxi.


Oh, and that's what you get...

...for being a good person.

Did she write to you from prison?

She said she was going to get out

and come back to me.

Then I heard that she had died.

Anna, I need to tell you something.

Oksana isn't dead.

She escaped prison

and she's been working for an organization

who has protected her,

and I have been trying to find her.

She isn't dead?


And I think she's in Moscow.

Maybe you should stay with a friend

for a little while,

just in case she makes contact.

How is she?

Uh, I don't know.

- Ohh!

But if there's any sign of her -

I mean any -

if anything comes up at all,

will you call me?


Who told you she had died?

A man came to the apartment.

He said he was aware of my relationship with Oksana -

she had been spinning lies again.

He told me he wanted to break it to me personally.

Would... Would you remember what this man looked like?

Is he in this photo?

Yes, that's him, with the beard.

Sexy man.
