Today is the big day! One of the best spy thrillers in TV history is now streaming on Netflix, and we're seeing a lot of people talking about it. Of course, we're talking about the British series Killing Eve. It's the show everyone's currently watching at the moment.

Based on Luke Jennings Villanelle novel series, Killing Eve is an offbeat and suspenseful show that follows a British intelligence operative named Eve Polastri, who is given the task of tracking down a notorious psychopathic female assassin. But what was supposed to only be a job assignment turns into something entirely different when Eve finds herself drawn into an epic game of cat and mouse with said assassin.

Grey's Anatomy star Sandra Oh plays Eve Polastri, a British intelligence investigator who becomes obsessed with a ruthless international assassin she's been tasked with capturing. English actress Jodie Comer portrays the role of Villanelle, a psychopathic and skilled assassin who becomes equally obsessed with Eve. Other talented actors, such as Fiona Shaw, Kim Bodnia, Sean Delaney, Darren Boyd, Owen McDonnell, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and David Haig, are also in the cast.

Now that all four seasons of Killing Eve are streaming on Netflix, I thought I'd rank the show's season finales from worst to best. If you're curious to know my rankings, all you have to do is continue reading.

Spoilers from Killing Eve seasons 1-4 are ahead!

4. Killing Eve season 4 finale

The season 4 finale should've been ranked as the best season finale out of all the seasons, seeing as though it's the episode wrapping up the series, but it was just so bad. Honestly, the best parts in the finale were all the Eve and Villanelle scenes, while everything else was meh.

After being separated for most of the fourth season, we finally see Eve and Villanelle reunited. All the build-up to them getting together finally pays off when they share a passionate first kiss that turns into a full-blown make-out sesh. Everything was looking up for them. They had joined forces to finally put a stop to the Twelve, but once the time came to take down the secret assassin organization, everything went terribly wrong.

Well, Villanelle did manage to murder all the Twelve members, but just a couple of minutes after doing so, she's shot to death by a sniper's bullet. An assassination that was surprisingly ordered by Carolyn. Sadly, Eve was there to witness her murder and had to watch her lover take her last breath as she sunk down to the bottom of the River Thames. What a terrible way to end an incredible series! Shame on you, Killing Eve writers!

3. Killing Eve season 2 finale

In my opinion, only the Killing Eve season 4 finale was bad. All the other season finales were enjoyable to watch. That's why it was hard to rank them. The season 2 finale saw Eve commit her first murder when she killed Raymond to protect Villanelle. After watching Eve kill Raymond, Villanelle begins to believe that Eve is like her. That they're one and the same and belong together.

They attempt to run off together, but Eve changes her mind once she realizes that Villanelle had a gun the entire time. She realizes that Villanelle intentionally didn't use the gun when fighting off Raymond because she wanted Eve to kill him. Eve wants nothing to do with Villanelle after realizing this, so she tells her that she's going home. But as she walks away, Villanelle shoots her in the back, and we're left wondering if Eve is alive or dead. Dun dun duuun!

2. Killing Eve season 3 finale

The season 3 finale saw the end of Dasha and Rhian, two characters that I couldn't stand one bit. There were also a couple of sweet moments between Eve and Villanelle like when they slow danced at a basement club. The scene where Villanelle shows up at the Bitter Pill office looking for Eve was funny to watch too. The Bitter Pill staff were on edge the entire time she was there, and Villanelle loved messing with them. But the scene that sticks out the most is the last scene of the season when Eve and Villanelle talk while standing on the London Bridge.

It's a bittersweet moment showing Eve and Villanelle deciding to turn their backs on one another once and for all and walk away. But at the very last moment, they both turn around and stare at each other. It's like no matter how hard they try to resist, there's always an undeniable pull that brings them back to one another. I was an emotional wreck watching this scene play out, especially with the song "Tell Me" playing in the background.

1. Killing Eve season 1 finale

The season 1 finale was perfect in every way. The scenes between Villanelle and Irina were hilarious to watch. I couldn't wait to see Villanelle confront her old lover, Anna, but I wasn't expecting Anna to unalive herself. The intense stand-off between Eve and Villanelle in the cafe was also entertaining to watch.

But the scene that takes the cake is the last scene of the season when Eve trashes Villanelle's Paris apartment. Villanelle walks into the apartment and says, "Did you have a party or something?" I immediately start laughing. Things then get serious between them as they talk about their mutual obsession with each other. It seemed that both of their guards were down, but then Eve does something I don't think anyone saw coming, and that's stab Villanelle in the stomach.

Eve instantly regrets stabbing Villanelle and tries to find something to stop her from bleeding out. But Villanelle begins shooting at her, causing her to hide. Believing that the coast is clear, Eve comes out from her hiding spot only to find Villanelle gone and the landlord looking around the apartment. The landlord notices Eve and tells her that Villanelle has left. Eve replies back by saying, "Where?" The season 1 finale then comes to an end. This shocking cliffhanger left me and many other viewers on the edge of our seats. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next between Eve and Villanelle. Now, that's how you write a season finale!
