In this week's Killing Eve, while Eve is pursuing Villanelle, little does she realise that the psychopathic charmer has designs on her husband

If series one of the BAFTA-winning Killing Eve was a game of cat and mouse – with Eve starting off as a wee timid creature and becoming more of a hunter as time went on – series two, we can now clearly see, has another agenda. It’s a weird love story.

"I can identify with that human thing of being obsessed with someone," Sandra Oh told TV Times. "That terrible, eating feeling... I’m sure everyone has a tale they don’t wanna tell."

Tonight, as Eve and Villanelle (Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer) increasingly fall for each other, the psychopathic assassin pays a visit to the London school where Eve’s husband Niko teaches, and – with the help of yet another new disguise and accent – tries to nudge him towards an affair with a fellow teacher.

Konstantin, meanwhile, is keen to get Villanelle away from Raymond (the brilliantly nasty Adrian Scarborough). But what exactly are his motives?
