Shortly before his death, Kenny revealed to Eve (Sandra Oh) he had been looking into the 12, so there is a high chance someone from the mysterious organisation is behind his timely death.

Speaking to, Delaney opened up about his departure from the show, leaving his exit was down to the show’s plot.

He said: “I’m very, very fortunate to be part of this.

“If I felt that it wasn’t going to help the plot and move forward in the way that it was, I would have been given my say, and it would have been listened to.”

He added: “I said it’s got to happen before people are ready for it.

“I was really excited about it. I’ve milked this series for all its worth.

“Three seasons later, a couple of awards later, it’s still going and people love it, and I’ve had so much experience and so much time to learn and hone my craft and work with these brilliant people.

“It would have been very cheeky of me to be like, ‘No, you’re making the wrong decision. Keep me in for another three seasons so I stay employed.’

“It would be me being greedy, I think.”

In episode two, ‘Management Sucks’ Eve teams up with Kenny’s boss Jamie (Danny Sapani) and colleague Bear (Turlough Convery).

They unsuccessfully tried to look into Kenny’s computer files to find out what he was working on before his death.

Eve then paid Kenny’s mother and her former boss Carolyn a visit.

She revealed she had Kenny’s mobile phone and that his hard drive contained important information on the 12, which was now in the hands in the police.

Eve and Carolyn agreed to work together and secretly to access the files but unknown to them, they were being secretly recorded.

In a twist of events, Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) had given Geraldine (Gemma Whelan), a fridge magnet which was actually a recording device.

Konstantin later revealed to Villanelle (Jodie Comer) that he was still working for the 12, which most likely means someone from the 12 will have picked up Eve and Carolyn’s conversation.

Viewers will have to wait until episode three to find out what will happen next.
