Maisie Williams starts back with Kim Oakes
Revengeful, yet unsure about what to do next- Kim Oakes (played by Massie Williams) is on a mission to avenge her father’s death. She has spent her entire childhood with one person, her mother and she has depended on her life with it. Now that she is grown up, she is curious about doing things she couldn’t do before. The most important thing on her supposed bucket list is to take revenge for her father’s mysterious death.
Kim Oakes was very young when her father was murdered and since then her mother Tina (played by Sean Clifford) had taken Kim and settled somewhere where they were abandoned from the whole world. Kim doesn’t know much about the different things that exist or even about the way of living. She only knows what her mother Tina has recited to her, and she has only told her so much because of her instilled fears.
Kim breaks out
Kim is finally able to breakthrough and flee from the cabin leaving her mother at the dinner table. The first thing she wants to do is experience a pub. She walks into a pub satirically with her dad’s ashes in a wooden box. In the pub, she is approached by an anti-social Nicky, and soon after his brother Jay comes along. Kim starts sharing her emotional and heart-wrenching story with the brothers and in response to that, Jay plans to fool Kim by telling her that the world will end in two weeks.
Kim has been out of her cabin for the first time, the only thing she’s good at is holding weapons. That’s what the show is about, Kim might not know people, but she has the skills of a ruthless assassin. She could kill her target down in one go. Kim believes Jay’s joke and believes that the world is going to end two weeks. Now you know where the title “Two Weeks to Live” comes from.
Kim and Tina both are aggressive women. Together, they form an unbeatable team, they would hunt for filling themselves up, fight for each other whenever needed, and would be there for each other at every phase. On the other hand, are Jay and Nicky, they don’t care much about anyone but are ready to face anything that Kim goes through. All these characters together make a comical and hilarious setting for the storyline and the viewers.
Sean Clifford, best known for her role in Fleabag is also a major character in this show “Two Weeks to Live”. Her character is much similar to her role as ‘Claire’ in Fleabag. She is highly qualified for her daughter’s mission. Kim needs her mother’s guidance to successfully avenge her father’s death.
Massie Williams, the well-known actress from Game of Thrones has finally been featured in a new show. She has spent the last 8 years of acting as “Arya Stark” in the HBO Drama Series. Now, the 23-year-old is in the next phase of acting in her career.

This show can be classified into comedy and action genres. The action is with the mission they are destined for and there is a comedy because of Kim’s character and her bond with Nicky and Jay.
I have been waiting for a teen assassin show for a long time and this show has finally brought that to our digital screens. It would be challenging for any viewer to leave this show after watching episode 1 as the storyline is full of unanticipated twists and turns.
