'Killing Eve' season 2 episode 5 spoilers tease a possible hook up between Eve and Hugo; What will Villanelle do?
This article contains spoilers for season 2, episode 4: 'Desperate Times.'
The latest and fourth episode of Killing Eve's season 2 left viewers wondering whether the almost kiss between Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and her coworker Hugo ( Edward Bluemel) was an isolated incident or not, but the trailer for the upcoming fifth episode only makes the whole scenario all the more confusing.
As we saw Eve catch the new killer in town, The Ghost, it is still up for questioning whether the woman in the MI6's custody is actually the killer or not. But what is definitely not up for question is the sparks flying between Eve and her considerably younger colleague, who has been a bit of a smug smartass up till now. In the trailer for the fifth episode titled 'Smell Ya Later,' we see Eve and Hugo continuing to work closely with each other, as they talk about a photograph of Eve. It's way too obvious how that night in the office where the two tried to bust The Ghost has transpired into something significant because Eve hasn't warmed up to anybody at her workplace like this before.
Funnily enough, one would think the only problem with the situation and budding interest in each other would be Eve's marriage to Niko Polastri (Owen McDonnell), but the real problem with Eve indulging in a new romance of sorts would have to be her former target, the serial assassin, Villanelle (Jodie Comer.)
In the previous episode, we saw Villanelle realize how deep-rooted her emotions for Eve are, and how her insecurities got the best of her when she realized that maybe Eve had actually moved on to another new serial killer. So one can only imagine what the prospect of Eve indulging in an affair might do to the psychopath with a penchant for elaborate murder scenes. We have already seen Villanelle try to sabotage Eve's marriage by urging Niko's coworker to pursue him, so Eve getting involved with Hugo will only end up ugly and dirty for the two of them.
The trailer also shows Eve asking questions like "You want to go upstairs?" to someone not visible in the frame, before the very next scene shows Hugo asking a similarly undisclosed someone "You ready to take your top off?" There's a high possibility that the two of them are speaking to each other in those moments, but knowing the show's love for twists and turns, we can't be too sure about that. It is almost depressing how poor Villanelle has to resort to seeking comfort at the hands of a young room service boy at the hotel she's staying in, but the look on her face is enough to guarantee that if there's one person we should be concerned about at this point on the show, it is whoever's trying to take Eve's attention away from being all invested in Villanelle. Good luck, Hugo! You need it.
'Killing Eve' returns with its episode 5 of season 2 on Sunday, May 4, at 9 pm, only on BBC America.
