This is usually a horrifyingly difficult dilemma for the hero, doubly so if they have a SecretIdentity. Attacking the villain outright will endanger their loved one and reveal the secret... that is, if the villain isn't secretly training a gun on them as a form of collateral to enforce a [[NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine civil, if tense, social exchange]]. What usually happens is the Big Bad gets the first move and delightedly forces the hero to play along, as if they really were having tea with a friend. Expect the hero, villain and InnocentBystander to have a tense (and potentially hilarious) [[OneDialogueTwoConversations veiled conversation.]]

May overlap with VillainsOutShopping if the encounter is not planned and is just a result of the villain's everyday, mundane activities unrelated to their villainy. A major reason things don't boil over is usually both parties respecting the SacredHospitality trope. VillainOverForDinner is distantly related to DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu.

* Inverted in the aftermath of ''Afternoon Tea with the Devil's Daughter'' in the WhateleyUniverse. Phase and She-Beast, who knew each other in elementary school, get together and talk about books. Only Phase is the child of the powerful, mutant-hating Goodkind family, who are behind the [[TheMenInBlack MCO]] and the [[KnightTemplar Knights of Purity]], so She-Beast's friends think Phase is trying to trick her, and on the other hand She-Beast is the daughter of the dreaded supervillain Dr. Diabolik, so Phase's friends in turn think ''She-Beast'' is brainwashing her or otherwise tricking her into spilling team secrets. About the only two people ''not'' actually ascribing sinister motives to one side or the other are, in fact, the conversationalists themselves.

* An InvokedTrope in ''Four Against The Mob'' by Oscar Fraley. [[Series/TheUntouchables Elliot Ness]] invites a suspected SerialKiller in for a friendly chat, even ordering dinner. He gets a bit nervous when the suspect is wielding his knife and looking at Ness with a mad glint in his eye, but takes comfort in the fact that his men are in the next room...until he goes to the next room and finds his men have gone off for dinner themselves! Apparently they heard Ness order dinner, so decided everything was alright.

** Angelus dropped by Joyce's house in a late-S2 episode to inform her that he was looking for Buffy and yes, he'd had sex with her daughter. Fortunately, Buffy and Willow were a few steps ahead of him, having warned Joyce not to let him in and magically revoked the invitation.
