Eve and Villanelle in Killing Eve Season 2
The first episode of Killing Eve Season 2 will air April 7, 2019 on BBC America. Eve is half British but was born in Connecticut. Always fascinated by women in crime, she excelled in a degree in criminal psychology. When her father died, she came back to the UK, met Niko, and never really left. Eve started working at MI5 assessing risk, yet never living it. She’d always dreamed of working as a spy but instead, she was desk-bound, assigning protection to foreign people of interest during their trips to London. Struggling to find meaning in her work, her ennui began to get the better of Eve, and she couldn’t shake the creeping sense of dissatisfaction. Then Eve’s fantasy crossed her path: Villanelle. Here was an assassin with flare, charisma, and danger. Appointed head of a secret MI6 unit by Carolyn Martins, Eve could now exercise not only her gifts, but also her obsessions. As Eve investigated the string of assassinations across Europe, her fascination with Villanelle grew. Soon it was no longer just a job; it was personal. So personal she gets blood on her hands: she stabs Villanelle. Eve is far from the desk job now, but what has she sacrificed? And how does her ego react to being caught in the seemingly irresistible gaze of Villanelle? Eve and Villanelle are portrayed by Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer.
