It’s a sad shame to see two people in love fall apart. And yet, this was the story of season 2 of Killing Eve. Eve and Villanelle had a bad falling out, one involving guns, naturally, and now both are left to pick up the pieces. I’m so excited to see them pick up the pieces.
While season 2 proved a bit divisive among fans and critics compared to the universal love for season 1, Killing Eve’s second season got one thing indisputably right; Eve and Villanelle’s semi-romantic, yearning, murder-based relationship. Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh knocked it out of the park, as always, and the ending opened up a new reality moving forward. What does Eve do now that Villanelle has shot her and left her for dead? What does Villanelle do now that she thinks the woman she spent a long time obsessing over is dead?
Thankfully, at least judging by this trailer, Villanelle won’t think Eve is dead for long. Then we can get back to the totally unhealthy but irresistibly compelling dynamic that makes this show so good. I can’t wait to see what new showrunner Suzanne Heathcote has in store for us. Honestly, at this point, we need them to bang. Come on, I don’t care how it happens or how much worse it makes the situation between them.
In even better news, season 3 of Killing Eve has been moved up to a new release date of April 12! Be there when the new season begins on AMC and BBC America.
