    Summary

    Eve Polastri, an experienced mayor, and Oksana “Villanelle” Astankova, a passionate attorney, run for the chance of securing a newly empty governor’s seat. Their matched intelligence and ever-growing tension keeps the race close and aggressive, much to each other’s annoyance.

    They have a turbulent and troubled past yet throughout the campaign, the two women learn they perhaps aren’t each other’s fiercest opponents but rather something else, something more.

    Summary

    Ambiguous canon divergence 02: Villanelle thought she could accept being the other woman, but the kind-of-retired assassin isn’t sure what to do when she develops stronger feelings for Eve. Juggling emotions and sexual appetites leaves Villanelle strung out and clawing for her own sense of normalcy in life.

    (Finale plot amendment: episode 2.08 is a buffet and we’re picking and choosing our plot points, AKA, Konstantin and Carolyn convince Villanelle and Eve to come back to London to work at M16 instead. Notes on that start in chapter 3.)
