Relationships are complicated in new The Smile Has Left Your Eyes teaser

If this drama’s OTP (One True Pairing) had a Facebook page, their relationship status would definitely be marked as “It’s Complicated.” I guess love can’t be easy when one half of the pair might be a killer who might, or might not, be playing the other half. Continue reading
