Season 1, Episode 7 – Big Little Lies’ finale answers the question we’ve been waiting all season for: who died, and who killed them? But the murder is still the least interesting part of this tense, thrilling and ultimately extremely satisfying finale which highlights, as usual, the strength of the women at its core.
Season 1, Episode 6 – Big Little Lies penultimate episode both illustrates how far we’ve come from the series’ premiere and sets us up for its ending, as Jane, Celeste and Madeline grapple with the things in their lives they’d rather not face.
Season 1, Episode 5 – In the best episode of the season to date, the women of Big Little Lies struggle to confront personal demons of all sizes, with varying degrees of success. (And Nicole Kidman proves once again that if she doesn’t win an Emmy for her performance here, there’s no justice in the world.)
Season 1, Episode 4 – Big Little Lies gets it right again with a solid episode that doesn’t answer many questions but reveals plenty of new motives for the infamous Trivia Night killer.
Season 1, Episode 3 – So much about Big Little Lies centers around women, motherhood and the idea of having it all. These Monterey women are all parents, and they all struggle with it. They also grapple with who they are, separate and apart from their children, and how their own neurosis can burden their kids’ lives.
Season 1, Episode 2 – There’s no clarity waiting for viewers as far as Big Little Lies‘ central murder mystery goes this week. But there is a pretty terrific episode focused on the petty, competitive parenting of Monterey’s posh mom set, and a deep, occasionally disturbing look at the marriages of queen bees Madeline and Celeste.
Season 1, Episode 1 – in the series premiere of HBO’s brand new prestige miniseries, a murder occurs in the beautiful seaside town of Monterey, California. But that’s hardly the most dramatic (or interesting) thing that happens in this soapy drama about suburban moms with hidden rage and secret tragedies.
