New 'Killing Eve' Season 2 teaser reveals Villanelle's vogue goes out the window in her crazy pursuit of Eve
That Villanelle's stylish aesthetic goes out the window has already been established, but this is a new low for the serial killer with a closet full of couture
Right at the beginning of one of the official trailers for 'Killing Eve' season 2, we heard our lead psychopath assassin, Villanelle (Jodie Comer), remark in an eerie voice-over that "Sometimes, when you love someone, you do crazy things." A recent teaser for the second season is a telling reminder of the crazy lengths Villanelle will go to in her quest for the titular MI5 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh). Want a hint? One word: Crocs.
Several teaser clips, trailers, and photos released by BBC America ahead of the second season's premiere, have already revealed Villanelle's ever so fashionably chic aesthetic is going out the window as she resumes the cat-and-mouse chase between her and Eve for the second time in the series. But we didn't know it was going to be this bad.
Guess love really makes you do crazy things after all. And this is beyond just feelings of the romantic kind; Villanelle and Eve are pretty much inexplicably obsessed and addicted to each other at this point, so it would make sense why the psychopath assassin with a closet full of couture doesn't shy away from sliding her feet into a pair of crocs as she tries to flee from the hospital that she has been admitted in.
The hospital setting makes sense because the season 1 finale ended with Eve stabbing Villanelle in her guts before the latter jumped off the room's balcony. And picking up right after the finale's end left off, season 2 introduces us to Villanelle's injuries as she wakes up on a hospital bed and tries to run away. But before she can flee the premises, she must commit the biggest fashion blunder of all.
That's right, with an expression full of agonizing disgust we see Villanelle putting on the pair of crocs laying under her hospital bed as there are no other options, and this scene ought to earn Comer an Emmy because it is unparalleled.
That Villanelle's stylish aesthetic goes through jeopardy in season 2 of 'Killing Eve' has already been established, as previous trailers showed her clad in hideous bright red and blue kids' pajamas as she makes her way to probably brainstorm about how to tease and taunt Eve into finding her. But this total disregard for fashion is only further proof of how consumed with her obsession with Eve the serial killer is. And that only makes her more dangerous than she has already proven to be because it's quite evident that she is trying to be as inconspicuous as possible.
On her run from the hospital, she does not want to be seen, so naturally, she chooses to dress up in something that anybody who knows her, wouldn't expect her to be walking around in. And there lies the charm of the insidious psychopath murderer that Villanelle is; in her pursuit of all this "normal", she has skillfully mastered the art of blending into such a nuanced normalcy that she could be right behind Eve, and yet, the agent would have no clue about it — as some newly released photos from season 2 reveal.
'Killing Eve' season 2 drops on Sunday, April 7, only on BBC America.
