Eve was walking alone in one part of the Garden of Eden while Adam was away on the other side. Satan seized this opportunity in hopes to gain a foothold in his diabolical plan of creating division between God and His creation that He made in His likeness. When Satan spots Eve in the Garden of Eden, she is near the part of the garden that she has maybe seen a number of times.
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” (Genesis 3:1-6 KJV)
Satan being the father of lies has only deception to aid him in his quest to separate us from the will of God. His plan was to catch Eve alone. Adam and Even probably would never questioned the will of God without Satan's “assistance ” God told Adam and Even to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and they respected it and intended to go against that request because it was the only request that God had only asked of them.
It was Satan all along planning to devise another initiative to thwart the aothority of God by deceiving Eve who caught Adam off of his guard leading him to eat of the tree which manifested the introduction of sin in the world.
