Big Little Liars, can you even believe it? A mere six weeks ago we were basking in the return of Big Little Lies' Monterey Five, a group of women all about supporting one another, covering up murders that probably didn't need to be covered up, and great skincare. (Honestly, amidst all the clandestine beach meetings in which everyone agrees they need to stick together yet no one really sounds like that's what they're going to do, they are all glowing! Must be that Monterey air.) And here we are today, standing on the precipice of the grand finale of what is sure to go down as the Greatest Trial in History — er, the Greatest Evidentiary Hearing in History — because Celeste (Nicole Kidman) will be interrogating Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) while under oath and fingers crossed the woman finally goes full monster in public. We were denied Academy Award Winner Reese Witherspoon throwing an ice cream cone at Academy Award Winner Meryl Streep, do not deny us this!

But how do we get to this point where Celeste is calling out Mary Louise to answer for her sins in a court of law? Well, we learn, not surprisingly really, that Mary Louise plays dirty. After the judge (Becky Ann Baker) decides she hasn't seen enough evidence to rule either way in this case — she doesn't want to take the boys away from their home, but also she has questions — Celeste will have to take the stand. Oh, but don't worry you guys, Mary Louise assures Celeste that they are still family. If Reese Witherspoon came out of nowhere and hurled a dairy product at Meryl Streep in that moment, I wouldn't even care that it made no sense story-wise.
