‘Big Little Lies’ wrapped on April 2 after seven magnificent, beautiful episodes, but that’s not enough — fans are hoping for a season two. For me, someone who has read the book, I’m happy with it ending where it did. (Warning: spoilers ahead.)
Big Little Lies, the HBO miniseries based on the Liane Moriarty novel, came to a deadly end, but apparently left people wanting more — and I get it. I didn’t want the show to end either. Trust me, I watched that final hour more than once. However, it ended the way it should have. Perry was pushed to his death by Bonnie, and ultimately, the bond between the woman surpassed all else; the final scenes of Renata, Madeline, Bonnie, Jane and Celeste at the beach with their kids was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
So, why do we need more? The show was about female empowerment, a bond between mothers that is stronger than all else. And in the end, that’s exactly what was shown. All of our questions were answered in the finale — Perry was the victim; Bonnie was the killer and all the women covered for her; Perry was Ziggy’s father, the one who raped Jane; and Max was the one bullying Amabella, not Ziggy.
“This is the perfect ending. There is no way; there’s no reason to make a season two,” director Jean-Marc Vallée, told Vulture about the future of the show. “That was meant to be a one-time deal, and it’s finishing in a way where it’s for the audience to imagine what can happen. If we do a season two, we’ll break that beautiful thing and spoil it.”
We all know if Jean-Marc isn’t doing it, then no one should. Again, the moment of the all the women together on the beach was the way it was meant to end. In the novel, Celeste actually opened up a trust fund in Ziggy’s name, Bonnie came clean to police about being the killer, and Jane and Tom started dating. But none of that is worth another show. Just give me that whole cast together again with a whole new story. Deal?
