"Desperate Times," definitely feels like the series is getting back to its roots, but it's going to have to push through to deliver the same energy that it did in Season 1.

"Desperate Times" takes us back to the haunting, bloody murder season 1 pretty much desensitized us to.

You know that Villanelle is psychopathic, you know that she's unpredictable and a ticking time bomb, but you can't help but root for her to reunite with Eve.

Killing Eve continues to press on its protagonists' soft spots, and it's for that reason "Desperate Times" works.

After a couple of episodes of near-miss moments, Killing Eve pulls its two leads apart again and sets them off on their own separate, but inevitably interconnected arcs.

All told, Sunday's murder was one of the most, if not the most, gruesome on Killing Eve so far.

[There's] a rare messy, vulnerable moment for Villanelle, and one that reveals that there's real intimacy and emotion on the line,... which is what makes it so intoxicating and dangerous for her and Eve alike.

No matter what happens next, this episode certainly feels like danger is building. There is a tipping point coming, and it's not going to be pretty.

As a result of entering each other's orbit, their entire lives have gotten upended, and that plays out very well on.
