Explanation

When a relationship goes from something to “chilly at best,” you can surmise that the relationship used to be warm or cordial: congenial fits best here. Knowing that the relationship has devolved allows you to turn to the second blank and determine that there has been an undermining, or an eroding, of “mutual trust.”

Congenial, erode.
