                            'Killing Eve' season 2: Burning questions about Eve Polastri that still need answers

Spoiler Alert for 'Killing Eve'.

While a lot of speculation has opened up about what lies ahead on Villanelle's path in 'Killing Eve' season 2, one of the biggest things we have completely overlooked is what happens to Eve after that very teasing cliffhanger season 1 ended on. Is Eve's boss Carolyn actually sketchy? Does Eve still have a job? Is she still married to Niko? With just two weeks left for the premiere of the second season, these are the questions about our titular Eve that have been keeping us up all night.

Played by Sandra Oh, Eve's character is an exceptionally efficient MI6 agent, who has been tasked with the job of hunting down serial assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer).



 

 

Thus ensues a cat and mouse chase between the two in the murkiest of journeys where Eve tries to understand her target, while Villanelle turns the game into a classic case of the hunter getting hunted. But in all of this, Eve's personal and professional life both go for a spin. Especially the latter, considering her boss — Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) — has been established as someone quite duplicitous.

Even though we find her being all calm as she questions Eve about Villanelle in the latest trailer for season 2, there's no forgetting her erratic ways in season 1.

Remember when Carolyn would remain all tight-lipped about Eve's mission to kill Villanelle, and the very next moment, reveal that she had an affair with Villanelle's handler, Konstantin. Let's also not forget how Carolyn paid Villanelle quite the clandestine visit in prison and the very next moment disbanded Eve and her newly created team. We know Villanelle works for this top secret shadowy organization called 'The Twelve' — who hire assassins to do their dirty deeds; so is it possible that Carolyn is a part of it?

But speaking about double jobs, let's not forget that Eve is at the crossroads of her employment status too. Right at the beginning of the trailer for season 2, we see Eve telling someone on the phone that she might have killed Villanelle.

We find out in the trailer that her target is far from dead, but they don't know that yet, so it's quite possible that someone would charge her for the murder of Villanelle. And let's not forget Carolyn firing Eve and her entire team in season 1, so the agent's job situation is quite dubious right now too. 



 

 

What is also under questionable doubt is Eve's marriage to Niko (Owen McDonnell) after the very rough dynamics the two ended on as season 1 culminated. The math teacher tried his best to be as accommodating of his wife's current assignment as he can, but sadly, conflict arose in the end and Eve's curiosity got in the way of their marriage.

Even though there's no official or vocal confirmation on the show about the two of them having separated, at one point in the finale, Eve tells Villanelle, "I've lost two jobs, a husband and a best friend because of you." Add to that the possibility of Eve having developed real feelings for Villanelle, and it suddenly makes sense why Eve thinks she and Niko are over.

However, all of these speculations about Eve's life are yet to be addressed, if not directly confirmed, and for that, we just have to tune into BBC America, when 'Killing Eve' season 2 finally lands on April 7.
