DON’T MISS: “Killing Eve” – The suspenseful spy thriller that became one of last year’s biggest hits returns for another go-around. Season 2 begins shortly after the stunning Season 1 climax that saw brainy MI6 agent Eve (Sandra Oh) stab psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in the gut. Now Villanelle has disappeared and Eve has no idea if the woman she has become obsessed with is dead or alive. Eve wants to find the flamboyant criminal before someone else does, but unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her. (8 p.m. Sunday, AMC).
