Eve Copeland (Lovett) is a teacher at the local high school and mother to Alex, who attends said high school. She has a widely known past of participating in numerous accounts of sexual intercourse, before meeting her now husband Kevin. The town holds her past reputation against her even though she remains faithful to her husband. This is proven in the pilot episode when Alex confronts her mother about being overbearing. She says "You said it yourself. It's a small town. I know. Everyone knows. [...] That you were a slut." resulting in Eve slapping her. Despite this, Eve displays evident worry and care for her daughter shortly after. Eve describes herself as strong. She is very determined and resourceful. In the beginning of the Pilot episode she is scolded by the principle for teaching the children about detailed sexual education despite the school boards wishes against such lessons. When the moms of her students harass her in public space she never shows weakness and stands her ground. She is a tough spirit with a gentle heart. This can be seen on the many occasions she lectures her husband on not being able to say no to their daughter. She complains "Do you have any idea what it's like to have been bad cop sixteen years? Sixteen years of me saying no? Sixteen years of a daughter who loves you and who hates..-" she becomes overwhelmed with emotion and is incapable of finishing her sentence but it is implied that she feels Alex hates her. Eve has a very tight leash on her daughter in fear of her repeating her own past mistakes. Having known the repercussions of life she only wants to protect her only child from that.
When the Mist arrives, Eve and Alex are trapped in the local mall and she will do whatever it takes to keep her daughter safe.
