Trivia

At the beginning just before Celeste crashes, as she's in a daze having flashbacks of she and Perry in the car in the throes of passion, the radio is faintly playing Neil Young's "Down By the River". The song is about killing your lover, who he describes as taking him from one emotional extreme to the other. See more »

Goofs

At around 18:00 Celeste is driving her kids and the car is supposed to be in motion but the RPM-counter shows zero. See more »

Quotes

Celeste Wright: I... I... We're a family, and... and a family is meant to be open and honest with each other, so.
Josh Wright: I don't think we're that kind of family.

If you were given the impression that season two would focus exclusively on the fallout from the events of the first season's finale, you're in for a surprise. If season one was a slow burn, season two at this point has its foot all the way down on the gas, and it doesn't seem like that it will be letting up anytime soon.

The episode is creating a very ominous vibe that appears may last for the remainder of the second season. The secrets, the lies; they are unraveling on our characters very quickly, whether they are still kept secret or not.

With five episodes to go for the rest of this season, there is no question at this point that Big Little Lies is headed to no calm and all storm, and there is no predictability as to what could come next. That's what makes the series so wonderful--we have no idea how these characters are going to land because Big Little Lies is in no way formulaic television.
