In the 6-part mini-series, single mother Louise tries to support her son by getting a part-time job at a psychiatrists office.
It’s there she meets David, her boss, and through their relationship Louise becomes trapped in a web of lies as it becomes increasingly clear that no one and nothing is as it seems.
The thriller is packed full of sexy moments that will remind viewers of recent dramas like Normal People and Bridgerton.
In fact, Ita O’Brien, intimacy coordinator for Normal People, choreographed some of the raunchiest scenes in the show.
Many of those watching have been left shocked by the Netflix series, which is an adaptation of the best-selling book by Sarah Pinborough
In one steamy scene, Louise and David engage in a very steamy romp on David’s desk.
Meanwhile other sexy moments see the pair entwined together while her young son sleeps next door.
Eve told InTheStyle Ita would encourage the actors to emulate animals in order to achieve the realistic and intimate sex scenes.
She revealed: ‘She uses animal references for the sort of noises or the physical reactions that she wants from you. So she might say, “Have you ever seen a horse buck? Do it like that.”
Meanwhile Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson, who plays Adele in the shocking six-part series, said the actors were often encouraged to emulate animals in the intimate sex scenes
‘Or, “Have you ever seen slugs having sex? It’s kind of like this movement.”
‘So, it’s a sort of way to communicate with you that doesn’t feel as invasive as just saying “harder” or “faster” or something that might make you feel really uncomfortable.’
However, it’s not all sexy and scandalous moments, with the series taking an unexpected turn when David’s wife Adele becomes good friends with Louise.
Through a series of flashbacks, viewers learn Adele has spent time in a rehabilitation centre with Rob, a working class, gay heroin addict from a Glaswegian tenement.
After meeting David, Rob tricks Adele into ‘travelling’ or swapping her soul into his body.

Rob goes on to steal Adele’s body by killing her while her soul is inside his original body, and continues to live Adele’s life.
Meanwhile in the present day, Rob, as Adele, grooms Louise to learn how to ‘travel’ or astral project out of her own body and into other peoples.
As Louise and David fall more in love with one another, Adele convinces Louise to swap bodies with her.
Viewers were left horrified to learn that Rob’s soul has actually been inside Adele’s body the entire series.

Back in the present day, Rob performs the same trick on Louise, killing her soul within Adele’s body by lethal injection, and stealing her body forever.
Rob sets up the scene to look like a suicide, and with Adele dead and gone forever, Rob’s soul, inside Louise’s body, is free to be with David once again.
Many of those watching were left completely baffled by the bizarre ending to the show, with one commenting: ‘I choked on my tea at the end.’
Another wrote: ‘This show is so f***** good but I’m so pissed at the same time, wtf?!?’
One added: ‘Finished Behind Her Eyes and…huh!? I don’t know if I’m impressed, confused, need to rewatch and/or got high without knowing before watching it.’
Behind Her Eyes is set to be released globally on Netflix on February 17, 2021.
