[S3E5] Are You From Pinner
Continuing to wonder why everybody seems to worship her mother, Villanelle chats up her stepfather next. All she gets from him though is that her mother has a deep sadness in her.

There, she presents Villanelle this stylish 80s jumpsuit that she tailored for her daughter. I guess fashion runs in the family.
[S3E5] Are You From Pinner
After three seasons of fascinating murders and artistic murder scenes, we finally know where Villanelle's (Jodie Comer) darkness comes from. All it took was a trip back to her roots, all the way in the Russian countryside and an intense, awkward family reunion to know that in the end, some mommy issues can be fixed only by murder. But even before that crucial twist at the end, fans seemed to have predicted the episode all along. Villanelle's tearing up, confronting her mother for dumping her in the orphanage and never going back for her and eventually setting their entire house on fire did not have the desired effect. And despite most viewers touting a happy, carefree Villanelle acting like a five-year-old amid her family, living up the childhood Oksana missed out on, some labeled the episode boring enough to have been wrapped up in a clip. Those critics' only conclusion is that the episode was meant to be Jodie Comer's Emmy pitch for the year and nothing else.
To recap it all, Villanelle goes to reunite with her family and finds her mother happily remarried with two sons and a step-son. One of them is Villanelle's own brother Pyotr, the other two are her siblings from her mother's current marriage. Despite their happy family Villanelle seems to remember her mother differently - mean and a bully. She spills that in private conversations with Pyotr and her mother's current husband but is assured her mother's inherent sadness has always to do with losing Villanelle as a child. So Villanelle decides to give things a shot, and overlook the past.
All Villanelle wants is for her mother to admit that she is her mother's daughter, that her darkness comes from her mother; instead, all she gets are accusations of not being a part of their family. This makes her kill her mother (duh!) and set their entire house on fire while Pyotr and Bor'ka are outside, in the barn. All of this tense build to an even more predictable ending had viewers now calling the episode boring even though it is probably the most twisted family reunion of all times on TV. But the standards the show has set for its viewers are exceedingly high and that got some of them tweeting: "This show is getting boring this whole episode could have been a clip."
