A bit of a slow burn but utterly riveting, it's "The End of the World" for the Monterey Five as their relationships fracture in big, little and profound ways.
As we approach the midway point, this latest hour shows how enjoyable and affecting this new Big Little Lies can be, while still repeating the same beats shown previously.
Big Little Lies has long danced rather gracefully around the murky issue of abuse entangled with sexual desire, but are they actually going there now? Really going there? Yes, yes they are.
The more we find out about the pasts of these perfect-on-the-surface women... it helps explain so much about their current efforts to keep the facades as perfect as they are.
Always of fascination are the children. All are acted beautifully. All, in their various ways, seem wiser than the adults.
While there are several standout moments throughout, The End of The World is overall a filler episode. Many of the season's overarching plots take a pause for each of the characters to practice some uncomfortable introspection.
What's extremely interesting about this season of Big Little Lies is that, no matter what, everyone has their time to come to terms with their actions.
A pot that is just consistently boiled over this season is Renata and Laura Dern is just owning every scene as this feisty Monterey lady on the edge.
A mother's desperation to prove her son's innocence knew no bounds on Big Little Lies Season 2 Episode 3.
In a show full of big, BIG performances, Zoe Kravitz's quiet work is so under-appreciated.
Sorry to break out some House Greyjoy wisdom here, but this second season is thoroughly weighed down by Perry's presence, and although this episode drags a little bit, perhaps it's because [it] is really dark.
Bless this show!
Every single time I think of Big Little Lies, I think about my love for Renata Klein.
