Luke Jennings, the Author of ‘killing Eve,’ Has Slammed the Series Finale for Using the ‘burn Your Gays’ Trope.

Once again, we’re faced with the awful cliché.

This adaptation of Luke Jennings’ trilogy Killing Eve has been a popular one since it premiered in 2018. Fans and reviewers alike were disappointed with the show’s final episode that aired on April 10th, compared to the remainder of its run.

In IMDB, it had the worst rating of the entire series, and the audience’s response was a loud “what?” as it dragged the “buried your homosexuals” stereotype to the surface. In a recent editorial for The Guardian, Jennings himself expresses his displeasure with the finale.

It’s been four seasons now that the drama has been following Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) as they go on a manhunt and fall in love. The show’s will they, won’t they dynamic kept fans guessing as to whether or not the two would ever be able to tie the knot.

Villanelle was abruptly gunned down as the two made it official just before the horrible twist of them escaping in their escape attempt. Even before the spectator can relish the moment, the film crushes the romance with a death that doesn’t fit with the tone that Jennings claimed he intended to convey.

Having your work made into a television series, like my Killing Eve novels, is a delight for an author,” Jennings begins his column. “Nothing the screenplay team accomplishes will please everyone; that is a guarantee. To put it simply, you’re too near to the action. That time you’ve spent ruminating about them is much too long now. It’s exciting to watch your tale go in new ways, though.”

According to Jennings, the program and the actors and screenwriters who have worked hard to bring his works to life are always appreciated. But when it concluded the story he stated: “It’s an incredible honour to witness your characters come to life on screen in such a captivating way. However, I was taken away by how the last season ended.”Luke Jennings, the Author of 'killing Eve,' Has Slammed the Series Finale for Using the 'burn Your Gays' Trope. 11

It was Jennings’ main complaint about the finale that it was “bowing to norms,” criticizing the uneven balance of same-sex couples continuously denying their happy ending. “A radical plot would have bucked the cliché that sees same-sex lovers in TV dramas given only the most ephemeral of relationships before one of them is murdered off,” he added.

“How much more fulfilling, and in keeping with the original spirit of Killing Eve, would it be if the pair walked out together into the sunset? When I was writing the novels, that’s how it appeared to me.”Luke Jennings, the Author of 'killing Eve,' Has Slammed the Series Finale for Using the 'burn Your Gays' Trope. 12

All in the Family, Beverly LaSalle, and Sara Lance’s death in Arrow are just a few examples of how “bury your gays” has been used to represent LGBT couples as more disposable than their straight counterparts.

In many ways, Lance’s death resembles Villanelle’s in that it came completely out of the left field, and there was a significant amount of fan outrage as a result. If you’re a fan of these characters and aren’t straight, it’s a certain method to prove that you can’t have pleasant things. Jennings listened sympathetically to those who were upset by the backlash

There is a silver lining to this demoralizing conclusion: Jennings’ passion was reignited. In closing, he sends a message to everyone who was disappointed by the show’s conclusion: “Villanelle is still alive. And she’ll be back, if not in person, at least on paper.”
