From the beginning, “Killing Eve” — an adaptation of Luke Jennings’ novellas — has specialized in surprises that both reveal and confuse aspects of its characters’ psychologies. The obsession that MI5 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) has with the international assassin known as Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is in itself a muddled mess of desires, and that comes to a head in the jam-packed finale when the two meet again.
Jennifer Fox wants you to see “The Tale.” While most writer-directors are invested in finding an audience for their picture, Fox’s motivations are deeper. The new HBO film isn’t just her first feature as a writer and first scripted film as a director; it’s her own story, crafted (and re-crafted) while she was living it, and meant to help the world understand the complex nature of childhood sexual abuse — abuse she experienced first-hand.
“My goal was to understand how and why it happened and to help other people and the world understand how complex and nuanced these events are,” Fox said in an interview with IndieWire. “That’s the purpose of this film.”
“The Tale” focuses on Jennifer (Laura Dern), a documentary filmmaker who’s forced to reassess an adolescent relationship with two coaches, a horse riding instructor named Mrs. G (Elizabeth Debicki) and her friend and track coach,
"The best was all the scenes that we got to do together, alluding to us having a romantic relationship," Metcalf shared. "It was the best, that was fun."
Considering that the impetus of 13 Reasons Why's entire plot is the suicide of high school student Hannah Baker, one might expect her to take a backseat for the show's second season, which takes place about one year after her death. But to many fans' surprise, Hannah is just as front and center for the show's sophomore installment . . . both in flashback form and as a corporeal, ghost-like vision who interacts repeatedly with Clay Jensen.

The network's Fall TV lineup is getting shifted around in a few ways to make room for new series like the Charmed reboot and the spinoff of The Originals, Legacies. While the news is certainly a bummer for any loyal Jane the Virgin fan, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Star Gina Rodriguez actually hinted that this was a possibility back in March. As she spoke
As a quick catch-up, Jo receives some pretty exceptional news in the finale: she's been accepted into a very exclusive medical program. Oh, and she'll have to move to Boston to do it. Meredith spends the episode hemming and hawing; she even offers
The opening hour revealed that the stolen Lynx diamond was but one of several artifacts belonging to Corvus Vale members, who years ago entrusted Alistair Black with masterfully safeguarding their fortunes. He did so by way of a secret room that was accessed via a stairwell hidden beneath the trunk young Johnny would get locked in for one of their tricks.

In case you were curious, HBO is no longer providing screeners for “Westworld,” which means this humble reviewer has no idea what happens beyond this week’s episode, and any speculation is thus based on pure theory. Only four episodes left before the season finale. And what a ride it’s been already.
While the past two episodes have demonstrated immense focus on specific storylines, “Phase Space” plays catch-up with nearly all of the show’s main players, moving the football forward for each of their storylines to at least a small degree. This means we see Maeve and her crew make their way out of Shogun World, following a badass samurai swordfight between Musashi and Tanaka and an emotional moment for Akane, as she says goodbye to surrogate daughter Sakura — and Maeve even makes it as far as the homesteads of Westworld,

Putting its titular MI5 agent Eve (Sandra Oh) and assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in the same space as each other midway through its first season, “Killing Eve” all but guaranteed an even bigger face-off by finale. In many ways, it was like Chekov’s gun. Seeds of chemistry were planted, but the bigger threat loomed for weeks as the first short season moved through the story fast, creating a two-way cat-and-mouse chase as Eve

In just eight episodes, BBC America’s “Killing Eve” established itself as a whipsmart, terrifying, hilarious force to be reckoned with. It was exciting to see creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge breathe life into the spy thriller genre, if unsurprising given the brilliance of her series “Fleabag.” It was spellbinding to watch Sandra Oh as restless agent Eve in her first major TV starring role since “Grey’s Anatomy,” if unsurprising given how good Oh has long proven herself to be.
Villanelle has kidnapped Konstantin’s mouthy daughter Irina, and they make quite a pair, shouting in each other’s faces and threatening to kill each other. (Which makes sense; Villanelle is basically a ten-year-old, emotionally.) While they bond over fast food and their ability to speak multiple languages, Eve and Kenny stumble upon Konstantin in Carolyn’s hotel room — hello! — and he insists all he wants is his daughter back safely. “She’s so annoying,
