You don’t need to look at this photo to know that Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer refuse to be fenced in by conventional expectations of a spy thriller. BBC America’s crafty, critically acclaimed drama Killing Eve toys with the genre and expectation while spilling the story of intuitive secret MI6 intelligence officer Eve Polastri, who’s on the hunt for a mercurial, chilling assassin named Villanelle (Jodie Comer). As it turns out, Villanelle is just as interested in Eve. Killing Eve — which kicks off season 2 on April 7 at 8 p.m. — hits the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly, and right here, you can secretly monitor our exclusive gallery of photos featuring the dazzling and dangerous duo.
“I feel that they communicate on a completely different plane, where things like stabbing the other person mean different things,” says Oh of Eve and Villanelle.
“She seems something within Eve that she is desperate for,” says Comer, “but the person who she is gets in the way of that.”

“You’re going to see them try to be together,” says Oh, “and I’m going to leave that as open as possible.”
“I think it’s important that we never find too much humanity within her,” says Comer of Villanelle.
