Fans of Killing Eve eagerly await the Season 2 premiere. However, we almost didn't get a second season of the show, after one of the stars nearly died on set.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer talked about the upcoming season. They shared their initial thoughts on signing up for the series, acting choices in the first season, and some behind-the-scenes stories about Season 2.


Which is where the whole "near death" thing comes into play.




Comer explained that there was a scene where Villanelle is eating pasta "in a very grotesque way."

She said,

"She's trying to prove a point about something. She's playing it up, being her usual childish self, and the pasta was extremely dry.
"And it was extremely thick. I was shoveling it in, and then it just shot down my throat and then I was full-on choking."

That is an absolutely harrowing experience. To nearly leave this earth and—

Wait, how did she almost die?





It sounds like the experience ruined pasta for her, which is you know, understandable.

"A medic came in and managed to get it out, but my life definitely flashed before me… I just remember being opposite the other actor and looking at him, and he thought I was making a weird acting choice.
"So yeah, it's ruined pasta for me completely."

Killing Eve is a series about an MI6 agent tracking down a serial killer.

That may sound like standard fare for 2019, but add in the fact they're both women, they have a rather palpable attraction to each other, and oh yeah, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer are exceptional in their twisted roles and you have a gripping series.

Is it any wonder people are clamoring for another season of the show?





The full interview is available on EW's website, where despite the peculiarity of the situation, Comer says she was "full-on crying." However, Comer found some humor in the situation thinking it'd be a hilarious way for the expert assassin to die.

She's thankfully okay, and fans can look forward to the new season premiering April 7th.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
