Just in time for Valentine's Day, the first trailer for Killing Eve Season 2 has hit the internet with the precision of cupid's arrow. Of course, fans are in love, but, it's important that they don't just watch but listen closely to this new teaser. The song in the Killing Eve Season 2 trailer feels like an important clue, one that makes it clear that Eve and Villanelle "might as well face it, they're addicted to love."
As Sandra Oh's Eve nervously chomps on popcorn, a creepy cover of Robert Palmer's "Addicted To Love" by Skylar Grey starts to play. "The lights are on/ But no one's home," Grey sings on her slinky 2014 cover as Eve reveals to someone on the phone that unfortunately that wasn't the case when she finally met up with assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer).
"I found Villanelle," Eve says. "I think I might have killed her." And with that, she might have also killed the mood for a very shocked couple who just got engaged as she happened to give this confession. But Eve didn't kill Villanelle, as this trailer clearly shows, she just wounded her bad enough to put her in the hospital — not for long, though.
Villanelle is clearly on a mission to find Eve and maybe kill a few more people along the way. As a man asks what Villanelle's looking for as she sifts through a kitchen drawer, she smiles and says "a kitchen knife." And what would she need that for, he asks? Well, she says with a smile, "to kill you with." Yep, Villanelle's still got it.
Villanelle's also still got a thing for Eve. "Sometimes when you love someone you do crazy things," she says as she marches off in her pjs, possibly on her way to do something crazy. But, as crazy as it might be for Villanelle to have bought Eve a new high end wardrobe and showed up to her house looking for leftovers, Eve can't help but be a little obsessed with her, too.
Sure, Eve wants to catch Villanelle, but it's not that simple. "Why are you and Villanelle so interested in each other?" Eve's (former?) boss Carolyn Martens (Fiona Shaw) asks in the trailer, teasing the question we'll all be asking in the second season of this psychological thriller.
This cat and mouse game is also a bit of an unhealthy love story starring two women who have a lot of admiration for one another. And it's about to get even more unhealthy. At the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association press tour earlier this week, it was revealed that Eve will be trailing a new killer this season, which premieres April 7.
The "gravitational pull that Eve and Villanelle feel towards each other" is still at the center of the show, executive producer Emerald Fennel assured fans at the TCA panel, "but of course what is without a doubt is that Eve has a particular sense for women and female assassins. What is really interesting is saying, 'What do we do when somebody else comes along? Do we find Eve is a female assassin expert or is she a Villanelle expert? And what does that mean for her?'"
Between those questions and this new trailer, there's a lot of reasons to get excited for Season 2. With more than a month to go before its premiere, all of this Killing Eve content is the perfect excuse to marathon the first season. You know, just incase you needed a reminder of why you fell in love with Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in the first place.
