Killing Eve is finally streaming on Netflix, and fans everywhere are happy they can go back and rewatch all four seasons of the hit spy thriller series on their favorite streamer. Well, all three seasons because a fourth season didn't happen in my opinion. All the true fans will understand what I mean.

Over here at Netflix Life, we've already started our rewatch session, and while going through the episodes, we couldn't help but notice that there are many characters in the series who we absolutely can't stand. Of course, we're not talking about the two main characters, Eve and Villanelle. They can do no wrong in our eyes. However, there were a couple of times in the show where Eve irked me. Sometimes, her decision-making was just horrible. She's still a beloved character of mine, though.

Are you curious to know which Killing Eve characters we're talking about? If so, keep reading because we listed 11 of the most disliked Killing Eve characters below. We even ranked them by how annoying they are, with the No. 1 spot being for the character who we think is the most disliked on the list.

Spoilers from Killing Eve seasons 1-4 ahead!

11. Geraldine

Hear me out. Geraldine isn't a bad person at all. She's just annoying. All she did was whine anytime she appeared on-screen in the third season. I can understand her frustrations with Carolyn because her mom was treating her coldly, but I was waiting for her to eventually give up. If someone constantly keeps pushing you away, eventually you have to reach a place where you're like enough is enough. It took Carolyn basically kicking her out for her to leave. And we can't forget about her little crush on Konstantin. I was completely weirded out when she kissed him.

10. Anton

There's not much to say about Anton since he gets very little screen time in the series. He gets maybe a minute or two of conversation before Villanelle blows his brains out. However, when he did appear on-screen, I didn't like the way he was speaking to Villanelle. He had taken over the handler position from Konstantin, but he wasn't like Konstantin at all. He demanded that Villanelle stop speaking English and that she could only speak to him in Russian. Obviously, that rubbed Villanelle the wrong way and she instantly shot him in the head.

9. Rhian

I know Rhian was just doing her job as an assassin, but I couldn't wait until she met her demise. I knew it was coming too because she kept annoying Villanelle, and you know what happens when Villanelle reaches her breaking point. She kills whoever is bothering her, and that's exactly what she did with Rhian. While tussling with Villanelle at the train station, Rhian falls onto the tracks and her jacket gets caught. She tries to get up as an oncoming train approaches quickly, but it's too late, and she's completely crushed.

8. Paul

I'm not a fan of Carolyn at all, but I disliked Paul just as much. We're introduced to him in the third season when he's brought in to oversee oversee Carolyn's Russia Desk. He and Carolyn were long-time rivals who never saw eye to eye. Honestly, he would've been an okay character, but his arrogance is what annoyed me. He meets his end when Carolyn shoots him in the head with a gun.

7. Gemma

What annoyed me the most about Gemma is how she put on this innocent act when really she's a homewrecker. She knew Eve and Niko were going through a rough patch and she chose that moment to swoop in and try to get with Niko. But while she didn't deserve to die, I wasn't hurt by her death one bit. Once I saw Villanelle trap Niko and Gemma in the storage room, I knew one of them wasn't going to come out alive and the obvious pick would be Gemma.

6. Julian

The very first time Julian appeared on-screen, I knew something wasn't quite right with him. We later find out that he's mentally disturbed and is keeping his sick mother against her will. He tries to do the same with Villanelle, but Villanelle being the skilled assassin she is, manages to overpower him and stabs him in the neck with a knitting needle, ultimately killing him.

5. Aaron Peele

Aaron Peele is another character whose arrogance rubbed me the wrong way. He was also very controlling towards Villanelle. That's why I wasn't surprised to see her slit his throat. She hates being controlled. That's why she wanted to be a Keeper at one point in the series. A Keeper would've given her more power and control.

4. Raymond

Raymond was ordered by the Twelve to assassinate Villanelle since she had become of no use to them anymore. But what he didn't know is how skilled Villanelle was or maybe he did know but just underestimated her. Either way, he should've thought things through because he meets his end in a very gruesome way. Eve uses an axe and hacks him to death with it. But even if Eve didn't have the guts to kill him, he would've still died because Villanelle secretly had a gun.

3. Dasha

The main reason I didn't like Dasha was because she tried to pin her attack on Niko on Villanelle to get Eve to hate her. However, her plan ultimately backfired and it actually brought Eve and Villanelle closer in the end. Dasha ends up dying in the hospital after succumbing to her injuries that Eve caused.

2. Tatiana (Villanelle's mom)

I was excited when we got to learn more about Villanelle's background in the third season, but I couldn't stand her evil mother, Tatiana. She treated Villanelle as if she was the scum of the earth. She blamed her for her husband (Villanelle's dad) leaving and all the hardships she had to face in her life, and not once accepted her own faults. Overall, she was an awful parent to Villanelle and she could very well be the reason why Villanelle was the way she was as an adult.

1. Carolyn

Carolyn didn't start off as a bad character in my opinion. She was actually quite funny and entertaining to watch. My dislike for her started in the fourth season, but it's the season 4 finale that made me absolutely hate her. Why? Well, she's the reason why Villanelle was killed. She ordered the hit on her, and for that, Carolyn is the worst Killing Eve character.
