    Primetimer's managing editor Joe Reid breaks down what's new and noteworthy on television in his daily TV Today column.

    How time flies when you're playing a deadly game of psychosexual cat and mouse! After eight short episodes, we're already at the second-season finale of Killing Eve. Despite the absence of creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the talents of Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer have carried this season. They're giving two of the best performances on TV this year, so if you need to catch up before tonight's finale, do so.

    SEASON FINALE: In the final episode of Killing Eve's second season, Sandra Oh's Eve finds herself both more in control and less in control of things than she's ever been. And with the relationship between Eve and Villanelle as twisty and complex as it's ever been, it's anyone guess where this all shakes out. 8:00 PM ET on BBC America

    SPECIAL PRESENTATION: If seven days have been long enough for you to recover from not only last week's Game of Thrones finale but the waves and waves of post-game discussion, debate, and the rending of various garments — or even if you're just compelled by force of habit to tune in to HBO on Sundays at 9 — you'll want check out Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, a two-hour behind-the-scenes requiem for the epic fantasy series and the many, many artists who made it. 9:00 PM ET on HBO

    SEASON PREMIERE: Having dropped its full second season to Starz's online  platform last Friday, Vida will also air weekly, with two back-to-back episodes each Sunday night over the next five weeks.

    SEASON FINALE: The second season finale of Good Girls sees Beth (Christina Hendricks) in Turner's crosshairs, while an old foe prepares to re-enter the picture. Good Girls has been renewed for a third season, though with Sunday Night Football in the fall, the show won't return until the spring. 10:00 PM ET on NBC
