The BBC America series is the perfect example of how much a female-led show benefits from women writers and showrunners, says Sundi Rose. "Some critics have suggested removing the cat and mouse element of the women’s relationship took the wind out of the show’s sails, but I feel very, very differently," says Rose. "In fact, this made the show feel more inherently female. When you add in Eve’s superior in the MI6 organization, Carolyn, you have a complicated spectrum of female dynamics and motivation. The beauty and complexity of the relationships lie in the details and small moments among the women. Of course, Villanelle shooting Eve in a rejection-fueled sadness is no small moment, but it took two whole seasons for us to get there. From the moment the two shared a meal – the comforting Shepard’s Pie – it became clear that the series was implementing a system of signs that women could relate to."
