I have thoughts.
After paying closer attention to the flashbacks, it’s actually Celeste who suggests the lie first. She says to Bonnie “I pushed him”. Then Maddie says “You (Celeste) didn’t push him, you (Bonnie) didn’t push him. Nobody pushed him”.
Celeste kicked ass in court. I knew Mary Louise was responsible for the death of her other son.
When Mary Louise came to Celeste’s door, all she cared about was appearances and not the truth. “Don’t lie about me; nothing about lying about Perry. And she sure didn’t have an answer to Celeste’s question about if Perry lied. All she cared about was herself.
I was so happy for Maddie and Ed and Abigail doing the vows was amazing.
Watching that scene really emphasized the fact that Reese Witherspoon does not age. She looked 25; makes me jealous.
Also, did anyone else think that Bonnie actually poisoned her mother with the with the wine or the food? She woke up and then after eating she had a setback and died. Very suspect.
Nathan and Ed are totally the same person. They’re both in love with women who don’t love them the same way. Maddie loves Ed from a basis of security and normalcy. Bonnie uses Nathan to escape from her past and uses him to try and live the ideal image of what she thinks marriage should be.
Fuck Gordon. He gets to keep those damn toys while Renata loses everything. I cheered when she smashed everything with that bat. Too bad she didn’t use it on his head. Men like Gordon are the reason why the trope bitches be crazy exists.
I knew the minute Bonnie started texting that they were going to go tell the truth finally. Hopefully that detective finally leaves them alone but DAMN if they all didn’t look fabulous marching into the police station. Their coat games were on point.
But, seriously, fuck that ending! Especially if there isn’t a third season like has been announced.
Finally, I’m super bugged by a few storylines they just left hanging.
-Corey! Cop? Informant? Reporter? Just a dude paying a traffic ticket?
-Abigail? College? Gap year? What?
-Joseph’s scorned wife with the new tits. Did Ed say no? Did Ed actually fuck her and that’s why he feels fine moving forward with Maddie? Did she make Joseph watch and be a cuck?
-The boys teacher. He seemed like he was going to play a role in the boys’ story. Then nothing. Same with the principal.
-Perry’s father second family. Why drop in that very specific story and then never address it again?
Overall I enjoyed the season but it was nowhere near the greatness of the first.
