What I’m Watching: Killing Eve

Killing Eve: Season 2, Episode 2 “Nice and Neat” (B)

I’m wondering how long it’s going to be that Villanelle stays on the run, slowly killing the people who are dumb enough to help her. The call that she made towards the end of the episode to report in only to be told that there was no one there for her indicates that she’s on her own, and something tells me that’s only going to lead to more dead bodies. Shouting Eve’s name on the phone shows just how connected she still wants to be to the woman who stabbed her, and it shouldn’t take Carolyn too long to deduce that they did indeed encounter each other more recently. Eve commenting admiringly on Carolyn’s look was funny and weird, as was her very dry response. Eve’s new team members seem enthusiastic if nothing else, with Hugo proving particularly irritating. I recognized Nina Sosanya, who I think I know from her role in “Love Actually” more than fifteen years ago, whose character, Jess, hasn’t done much of note just yet. Eve’s openness with her husband seems to be working somewhat, though he’s likely going to be in danger if Villanelle gets too close. I was surprised to hear Jodie Comer’s spot-on British accent before I learned that she is in fact British, which makes a lot of sense. Her temporary landlord was indeed creepy, and it was evident that she was going to find some way to kill him once he snapped. Konstantin still being alive was spoiled for me by a still I saw, and I think that Carolyn is going to have a hard time talking Eve down since there’s no way she’s going to be willing to work with him.
