What happened to Kenny’s phone?

Following Kenny’s unexpected death in the premiere episode of season three, Eve (Sandra Oh) decides to take his mobile.

The former MI6 agent then has a rather embarrassing confrontation with his mother Carolyn at the funeral.

Clearly needing a bit of alone time, Eve heads to the pub where she tries to unlock Kenny’s phone.

When she gets the device out of her bag, we see that Kenny’s screensaver is bizarrely a very cheesy picture of himself.

Now, Kenny wasn’t exactly the vain type – so does this really make sense?

Twitter certainly doesn’t seem to think so…

How has Twitter reacted?

Was it a gaffe? Or could it have been some kind of inside joke? Either way, viewers are baffled.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Please explain to me why Kenny’s phone has a picture of himself as the background. Be better #KillingEve.”

Another added:  “OK not to nit pick but does Kenny in #KillingEve have himself as his phone background???”

Moments later, a third tweeted: “Why is kenny’s phone background a photo of himself LMAO #KillingEve.”

Shortly after, a fourth wrote: “Why is Kenny’s wallpaper a picture of himself I don’t understand #KillingEve.”

When Eve picks up Kenny’s phone and sees his screensaver, she doesn’t seem to think it’s strange that her pal has a selfie as his screensaver.

It’s possible she saw a side to him that viewers didn’t –perhaps off-camera, he did love looking at pictures of himself.

Or maybe there’s another huge twist on the horizon that we simply just aren’t prepared for.

What else happens in Killing Eve?

After Kenny’s funeral, Eve strikes up an unlikely friendship with his former colleagues at the Bitter Pill.

Meanwhile, Villanelle struggles to prove herself when she’s assigned a trainee to mentor.

Will she ever make it to Keeper status?

Killing Eve is on BBC One, Sundays at 9.15pm with new episodes dropping on BBC iPlayer every Monday.
