Season two has been ragged, inconsistent and not nearly as much fun as the first. Even Villanelle's increasingly over-the-top murders have become repetitive and seem randomly dropped in to remind us she's a cold-blooded psycho.
I inhaled the first series and thought I'd inhale the second, but - how can I put this? It's a bit slow. Its self-aware, self-congratulatory tone is grating, and the only thing left is a great soundtrack and Comer in some eye-catching outfits.
If anything, this season is a little more off-kilter, especially as Eve dives deeper into the world of spies. The visit to the morgue, in particular, encapsulates the show's delightful inner wackiness.
The first two episodes of Killing Eve Season 2 are full of compelling twists and wrinkles, but it's the sly feminism at the heart of the show's cat-and-mouse game that makes it all so infectiously fun.
The show's dogged pursuit of revealing the good, bad, and whatever within each of us, a messy assortment of human parts that are perhaps neither entirely worth discarding or saving, answers that question better than any particular plot point.
With a nice, short run of episodes each season, this is a lean and complex drama that blends what would otherwise be a pretty generic concept with a biting sense of humor that works every step along the way.
