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.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
