Eve then added: "If you do anything after I can’t be in it..."

Discussing the major twist at the end of season one, Tom said: "I suppose - where could it go? It does leave with one hell of a cliffhanger and you think ‘wait, what? What’s gonna happen there?’ which I always quite like."

Eve added: "There is a season two possibility."

**Spoilers for the final episode below**

The major twist at the end of the series is that Adele and her best friend Rob swapped bodies while lucid dreaming while he was visiting her family home, and Rob took over Adele's body, killing her when she was inside his.

Therefore, in the present scenes, it was Rob - inside Adele's body - that David was married to.

At the end of the season, Rob swaps bodies with Louise after tricking her into coming to her house, and then kills her while she is in Adele's body.

Rob then takes on Louise's body, leaving Adele's to die in a fire, and Rob marries David, disguised as Louise.

Behind Her Eyes is available to stream on Netflix now.
