'Killing Eve' season 2 episode 6 spoilers tease an unlikely partnership and Villanelle making things interesting
This contains spoilers for season 2, episode 5 'Smell Ya Later'
The new trailer for the sixth episode of 'Killing Eve' teased us with enough spoilers to keep us occupied for the rest of the week, and some of them are enough to shock us to the core because it's something nobody would have woven up in their wildest dreams. The latest episode 5 'Smell Ya Later' saw an unlikely partnership between the titular MI6 agent, Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and her former target, Villanelle (Jodie Comer), the serial assassin as they worked together to crack down a new killer in town. And by the looks of it, both Eve and Villanelle have decided to keep their strange obsession with each other out of their way and realized what a great team they make — as we see in the teaser for the upcoming episode six, titled 'I Hope You Like Missionary!'
The teaser kicks off with Villanelle inviting Eve into her current abode, saying "Welcome, partner" and that is enough to convince regular viewers of the show that nothing safe could be up. it's a clear transition in this case, because after cracking The Ghost (the new killer), the next task on their to-do list would be to bust Aaron Peele and his father's company for whatever it is they have indulged in, that is causing all of his father's accomplices to end up getting murdered one by one. Just like how Villanelle was able to think like The Ghost and was able to divulge all information out of her, it's possible the Eve thinks she will be able to work her brains into the innermost trenches of whatever conspiracy is cooking with the Peeles _ explaining the odd partnership.
So many questions. Only 3 episodes left. #KillingEve Sunday May 12 at 8pm on @BBCAmerica and @AMC_tv. pic.twitter.com/DSbmpUkBxU— Killing Eve All-new Sundays @ 8pm on BBC America (@KillingEve) May 6, 2019
The other major takeaway from the trailer of episode 6 was definitely Aaron Peele saying out loud in one particular scene that his nose is bleeding. In the past, we have seen people associated with his family get murdered and their deaths getting staged as mere accidents, often bordering on their individual shortcomings, just as shrimp allergies and toxic inhalers in facial bleaches. So it's quite possible that whoever wants the Peeles out has reached their way to the top and succeeded at taking out their ultimate target by yet again skillfully staging their death to look normal. The fact that the very next scene shows Villanelle remarking "Why do rich people talk like children?" is not only comedic but also alarming: did she have some possible hand in this mysterious nosebleed?
But Villanelle makes some pretty accurate observations other than snark rich people commentary too, particularly in terms of Eve as the trailer ends with the serial killer in a blonde wig (or probably her natural hair styled so impeccably chic) — looking right at the camera — and saying, "The only thing that makes you interesting is me." It's possible that Villanelle is saying this to Konstantin for all we know because there's no denying that at the end of the day, it is Villanelle who makes everything about the already captivating show, exponentially more interesting.
'Killing Eve' airs on Sundays at 9 pm only on BBC America.
