Want more clarity on what’s coming up on the Big Little Lies season 2 finale? The big episode is airing this Sunday over on HBO and the latest promo that CarterMatt has for you below gives you more of a sense of what’s coming.
Within this installment, there are a few different perspectives you could take. On a specific story level, you can look at this episode as an exploration into whether or not Celeste is going to be able to keep her kids from going off with Mary Louise. She’s out to show she is unfit and that the issues in her relationship with Perry are ones that were of her own doing. Yet, she’s going to try and paint the argument that Perry’s issues stem from a far earlier part in life — that Mary Louise created the monster and if she gets the kids, she could turn them into monsters in their own right.
This is going to be as emotionally gut-wrenching as you would imagine and while it feels like the finale could be anchored by some other big “event” (like the death of Perry in the first season), David E. Kelley and Liane Moriarty may go in a different direction. The revelation that is made this time around may have something more to do with the Monterey Five themselves. Maybe this is the episode where they realize that so much of everything that they have is actually a construct and the tie that is binding them together is fear. It’s not a friendship based on love, but rather a chill that runs down all of their spines over whether or not they are eventually found out. It may be a difficult way to live, but this is the position they could be at within this world.
“The lie is the friendship.” That’s the powerful moment that anchors the rest of the promo.
Be prepared for this to be an episode that lingers with you — there may have been a feeling throughout that this would be the final episode of the series and it’s possible that it is.
