'Big Little Lies' season 2 episode 4 spoilers hint Bonnie Carlson might be Mary Louise's next target
This contains spoilers for season 2, episode 3.
With the little lies making their big comebacks in the lives of the Monterey Five, there's no question about how dangerous things might get if a certain Mary Louise Wright (Meryl Streep) doesn't stop snooping around. But can you blame that woman? Blinded by love for her newly deceased, secretly abusive son Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgard), Mary Louise has done the ultimate thing - hinted to the detectives that her son's death wasn't an accident; so what next?
In a newly released promo for the upcoming Big Little Lies season 2episode 4, we see the late Perry's widowed wife, Celeste (Nicole Kidman) filled with regret over letting Mary Louise into her home after she caught her snooping around for pills in episode 3. The trailer opens to her in the shower thinking about the (occasional) good moments with her dead husband, as Mary Louise's voiceover talks about how people are never really gone. But while Celeste is confused by her mother-in-law's extremely suspicious antics, the older woman is also plagued by lack of belief when it comes to her son's 'accidental' death.
Meanwhile, the other women of Monterey are battling their own conflicts - with people, with the lies they have told and within themselves. Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) is still struggling to get things back to normal between her and her husband, Ed (Adam Scott) after he found out about her affair. After couple's counseling and a very public breakdown at her kids' school later, things are still not looking bright for Madeline.
But she is not the only one, Renata (Laura Dern) might have her husband busted by the FBI and all her life's earnings wasted in a stupid stock scheme by him, but her prime concern last episode was her daughter, Amabella, who had a panic attack owing to the ever-rising tension in their household. And global warming, of course. But Renata's husband isn't a stranger to some of her secrets either, so expect some more tension at the Klein's!
Sadly for Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz), her mother's visit to her place isn't making things any better either. Bonnie is still going on her disappearing sprees and turning up with puffy eyes and a distraught face, while suppressed memories of her childhood involving her mother are making their way back in full swing. And that is not good because we have seen what a crazy idea of parenting her mother believes in. Moreover, the voice of Mary Louise addressing her need to snoop around Bonnie makes us worried for the latter, because well, Bonnie was the one to have actually pushed Perry to his death.
And even though last episode we did feel happy for Jane (Shailene Woodley) finally moving on and going out with her coworker Corey, looks like she will be back to the protective mommy zone in the coming episode as Mary Louise tries to be a bigger part of Jane and Perry's son, Ziggy's life. Like the poor kid wasn't conceived after Perry raped Jane or anything. Classic Mary Louise.
