I mean, come on. These two badass women go together like alcohol and bad decisions. Now that we know she is alive, we can expect Eve and Villanelle to cross paths, once again, when a shocking death affects their personal lives. The season might also showcase Villanelle’s marriage to a woman – who is not Eve – but a Spanish woman. And of course, the presence of an enemy might lead to chaos, possibly converting the wedding venue into a pool of blood. Red Wedding, anyone?
We might also see Villanelle donning several eccentric disguises and enjoying her time drowning in luxuries until she is informed that Eve is alive. Elsewhere, Eve might grapple with anxiety and fear revolving around her experiences, while Carolyn might trade her calm and composed demeanor for outbursts of temper.
