Tonight, the second season of Killing Eve premieres, but this year it will be airing on both BBC America and AMC, so those who don’t receive BBC America can finally watch this amazing series!

In the first season, we met Eve (Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy), an MI5 security officer who had grown bored by her desk job. So when she learned that an international female assassin had made her way to London, she jumped at the chance to join a secret MI6 unit trying to track down this mysterious Vilanelle (Jodie Comer, Doctor Foster). The more Eve read of Vilanelle’s exploits, the more she became obsessed with this woman. Meanwhile, we saw the charming, funny, and very much insane Vilanelle carrying out her killing spree, ignoring and eventually killing her own handler. She also became obsessed with Eve, and the pair started a mutual game of cat and mouse with one another.

Eventually the pair met face-to-face when Vilanelle broke into Eve’s home and demanded they have dinner together. Later, Eve tracked Vilanelle to a Russian prison, but she managed to escape before Eve could find her. Eve finally caught up with her in Paris, where she caught Vilainelle by surprise as she unexpectedly plunged a knife into her chest.

Don’t let her funny and charming demeanor fool you… Vilanelle is still a ruthless killer – she murdered Eve’s longtime friend/coworker. Despite this, Eve still finds herself inexplicably drawn to this woman. And likewise, Vilanelle feels something for Eve. As we start the second season, Eve is unsure if she killed Vilanelle or not. On one hand, Eve would love to put an end to Vilanelle’s murder spree, but on the other hand, she feels horrible that she may have murdered this woman she has become strangely attracted to.

I really enjoyed the first season – while Sandra Oh won the Golden Globe for her performance, it is Jodie Comer who really makes the show for me. She is amazing in this series. Like Eve, I find myself completely fascinated with and drawn to Vilanelle. She’s a psychopathic killer but so delightful at the same time! It feels wrong to root for her, but I can’t help it! I am happy to report that the second season, which picks up right where we left off, is just as fun, exciting, and shocking as the first. I can’t wait to see more of it!

On tonight’s premiere, “Do You Know How to Dispose of a Body?” Eve is reeling from her act of violence against Villanelle and doesn’t know whether she is alive or dead; a paranoid and severely injured Villanelle manages to get herself to the hospital for treatment; Carolyn approaches Eve with an opportunity.

Find out what opportunity Eve receives tonight on AMC & BBC America at 8/7c.

Last week, I finally got around to checking out the new BBC America series Killing Eve, and I was instantly hooked. Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy) works as a security services operative for MI-5, helping to profile serial killers. She generally lives a boring but happy life with her husband but has always been intrigued by the more exciting life of a spy. Eve discovers that there is a mysterious new killer at large, Villanelle (Jodie Comer, Doctor Foster, The White Princess). She is deeply drawn into the case and soon finds herself participating in a deadly game of cat and mouse. However, Villanelle seems to always be one step ahead and has also developed a bit of an obsession with Eve.

This series will make you laugh out loud one moment and have you sitting on the edge of your seat in suspense the next. It has a lot of humor, but it is also a genuine thriller/spy show with surprising twists, murders, and a mysterious mole inside the bureau. Villanelle is such a fun and entertaining character, and the relationship between her and her handler is hilarious. However, she is also very deadly and in the first few episodes proves that she is a ruthless killer who shows no emotion while brutally murdering her victims. Eve is similarly complex. While she jokes a lot in the early episodes, things take a dark turn, and things become a lot more serious and dramatic.

I can’t recommend this show highly enough. It’s definitely one worth catching up on if you haven’t yet checked it out (all of the previously-aired episodes should be bingeable via On Demand). This show just keeps getting better and better each week, and tonight’s episode is no different – there are some unexpected turns that will have you holding your breath!

On tonight’s episode, “I Have a Thing About Bathrooms,” having survived a terrifying close call with Villanelle, Eve now has the mole ensconced in a safe house and is buzzing; they have an exciting opportunity to glean information and crack this thing open.

To see what opportunity they get, tune in to BBC America at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Deception, Timeless, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Fear the Walking Dead, Worst Cooks in America, Trust, Westworld, Silicon Valley, Barry, Sweetbitter, and Vida.
