'Big Little Lies' season 2 episode 6 spoilers: Is Bonnie really going to confess the truth about Perry's death?
'Big Little Lies' season 2 really isn't waiting around with its exposure of the truth and episode 6 takes things on a whole other level if the promotional trailer is to be followed. Last week we saw Bonnie Carlson (Zoe Kravitz) coming face to face with the possibility that maybe Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) isn't the only threat to the Monterey Five. Jane's (Shailene Woodley) new man Corey was seen leaving the police station, which Bonnie saw in her daze to spill the beans on their lies about Perry's (Alexander Skarsgard) death, so all of that is waiting to unpack in the coming episode, the trailer for which is out now.
The trailer for episode 6, 'The Bad Mother', kicks off with an unknown voiceover, expectedly Corey's, claiming Detective Quinlan thinks one of the five will eventually crack and admit more than they have in the past about Perry's death. Occasional scenes of the five walking into what looks like the police station are sprinkled with the signature waves crashing at the shore in between, and then comes Mary Louise announcing that at the end of the day, despite her ongoing custody battle with her newly widowed daughter-in-law Celeste (Nicole Kidman), they are still a family. And of course, Celeste denies that saying they are anything but a family.
We see Celeste testifying in court, so the custody battle can be expected to pick up quite soon, following this season's fast-paced nature when it comes to important developments. But it's the scene where Celeste is breaking down in frustration that has us worried for her the most. Just like Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Renata (Laura Dern) have tried giving Mary Louise a piece of their mind in the last couple of episodes, this time, it's Jane's turn and she goes all the way. Jane, quite aggressively, tells Mary Louise that she sees Celeste as someone who's struggling, just like the rest of the people. But trust Mary Lousie to turn everything into a full-fledged interrogation, as she questions Jane back asking if she is struggling too, with her "conscience, perhaps?"
There's a tiny clip of Ed (Adam Scott) and Madeline finally hugging after days of battling the truth about her affair finally coming out, but while we're happy for the couple, we're extremely terrified for the Monterey Five. Bonnie visits her mother in the hospital and tells her "it's time." The next scene shows her seated somewhere, probably the police station, as she says "I have to confess." We can't tell for sure if Bonnie will change her mind or not, but the trailer also shows detective Quinlan glancing at Bonnie and suddenly it becomes clear that she is the one who was expected to "crack," per se.
'Big Little Lies' season 2 airs on Sundays at 9 pm only on HBO.
