'Killing Eve' season 2: Will we finally receive closure from the epic teaser in season 1's cliffhanger finale?

With the second season's trailer offering whiffs of the same sexual tension chase, there's a chance that Eve and Villanelle might finally have yet another face-off!


                            'Killing Eve' season 2: Will we finally receive closure from the epic teaser in season 1's cliffhanger finale?

BBC America raised the bar up really high with the debut season of its critically acclaimed thriller 'Killing Eve.' With brilliant performances from Sandra Oh as the titular Eve Polastri, and British actress Jodie Comer playing the role of the antagonist, Villanelle, the show was a revolution in ways more than one - making the announcement of a second season really not that surprising. But as we stand just a little over a month away from the premiere of season 2, there's that impatient little voice pricking our curiosity, thirsting for a closure to the ever so teasing finale of the debut season.

The newly released trailer of the upcoming second season has already established that the action picks up just moments from where the season 1 finale had left off. For those unaware, the finale saw MI5 agent Eve finally track down the assassin Villanelle after an intense, sexually charged cat-and-mouse chase, where Villanelle constantly kept teasing and taunting Eve, daring her to find her, while simultaneously also turning it into a game of the hunter getting hunted. The final scene showed the two of them laying cozily in a bed at Villanelle's very French apartment, and as she leans in for a kiss, Eve stabs her with a knife.

In classic thriller-turned-romance style, Eve rushes to the kitchen right away to get Villanelle a towel to stop the wound from bleeding, but of course, when she returns, Villanelle is already gone. So basically the first season was all about the chase culminating to a prospective closure with what many had expected to be a steamy romance session, but eventually, we were deprived of that. And now, with the second season's trailer offering whiffs of the same chase with equal amounts of sexual tension sprinkled throughout, there's quite the high chance that Eve and Villanelle might finally have yet another face-off, and this time, things won't be as open-ended.

In the season 2 trailer, Villanelle might be heavily injured with her movement impaired, but that doesn't stop her from resorting to her signature teasing, taunting tactics. Eve, who initially believes she 'might have killed Villanelle' soon finds out the assassin is far from dead, and thus begins round two of the chase, with the latter sending her cryptic messages hidden in gifts and luring her to a hotel room where obviously Villanelle is hiding. 

Even though Villanelle does seem to have the 'normal' life she so vocally desired in season 1, her inherent need to experience the same normalcy with Eve jumps out as she goes about her ways in the trailer. In that, Villanelle has everything she had been seeking in the first season, minus the one person she wants to experience it all with. Also to be noted here is that with newer victims and far more sinister crimes, if the chase between Eve and Villanelle is stretched out beyond this season, the show could fall prey to the unnecessary dragging of plotlines that a lot of binge-worthy series do beyond a particular season.

So to give Eve and Villanelle their rightfully deserved piece of closure at the end of this second season itself would be the smart things to do.

But then again, there's no denying the charisma that the two characters' chemistry holds — both in terms of the story and to an amateur viewer's perspective. So right now, all we can really do is wait for the second installment to premiere and just hope that Villanelle doesn't manage to escape once again!

'Killing Eve' returns with second season on Sunday, April 7, only on BBC America.
