*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
The strange romantic tension between Eve and Villanelle has been present since season one and culminated in the final moments of the finale when they almost hooked up. (Eve stabbed Villanelle instead.) And in the season two premiere—just as expected—their mutual fascination takes a turn.
Thirty seconds after stabbing Villanelle, Eve seems overcome by regret. So much so that she binges on candy (like, seriously binges), acts so erratically a woman mistakes her for a junkie, almost gets on a plane with a bloody knife, and then lies to Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) about having seen Villanelle. Things get even more complicated when she finds Villanelle’s blood under her nails while cooking dinner for her husband and has a meltdown in the bathtub.
