Does Mary Louise Wright suspect Celeste Wright of murder?

In Big Little Lies Tell-Tale Hearts, Mary Louise admitted she looks at Celeste as an “enigma,” the same way Perry Wright described her to his mother. After she found out that Perry had another child that she never knew about, Mary Louise began to question Celeste. Celeste tried to explain the abusive relationship between herself and Perry and that he fathered another child by rape. Mary Louise refused to accept this and claimed Jane Chapman could have been drugged, drunk, or mistaken.

Mary Louise also doesn’t believe her late son truly beat Celeste because Celeste never called the cops. She then pointed out the convenience of Celeste learning about the child just minutes before Perry’s death and already planned on leaving him that same day. Mary Louise realizes she has too many questions and not enough answers, so she’s going to the police.

Ziggy Chapman found out he has step-brothers

Chloe Mackenzie overheard her mother talking on the phone, and told Celeste’s children, Max and Josh, that they have a brother in second grade. She also told Jane’s son, Ziggy, the same. When Madeline Mackenzie found out, she took Chloe’s phone away and called Jane to let her know.

Jane talked to Ziggy and admitted they are his half-brothers. He said he’s known for a few months and didn’t tell her because he knew she would lie. Jane explained she never told him the identity of his father because she genuinely didn’t know. When she did find out, she didn’t know how to explain it to him. Ziggy also told his mom that Chloe said Perry “salted” her.

He meant “assault,” and Jane explained to him what the word means and what happened between her and Perry. Big Little Lies Tell-Tale Hearts ended with Celeste and her boys coming over to Jane’s house for dinner.

Ed Mackenzie discovered Madeline Mackenzie had an affair

After Chloe repeated Ziggy’s father situation, Ed told Madeline he never knew and questioned why she didn’t tell him. He got upset because he felt like Madeline hides secrets from him. Therefore, it hit the ceiling when Ed walked in on a conversation between Madeline and Abigail Carlson.

Abigail brought up Madeline’s previous affair with the theater director, and Ed was so angry he left the house. He eventually came back later that night to talk to Madeline.

She admitted to the affair but said it happened a long time ago and had nothing to do with Ed. She reminds him repeatedly that it’s a “her” thing, and also suggested they go to couples’ counseling.

Madeline also said Abigail has known for a year, and once again he hates that his daughters know her secrets, and she doesn’t tell him anything. Ed tells her, very firmly, that their marriage is over in Big Little Lies Tell-Tale Hearts.

Renata Klein realizes her husband lost their money in ‘Big Little Lies’ Tell-Tale Hearts

When Renata should be celebrating her magazine cover, her husband, Gordon Klein gets arrested on charges for security, mail, and wire fraud. He admitted to Renata that he probably lost all their money and the reality of not being rich anymore enraged Renata. She attempted to talk her feelings out with Madeline but ended up leaving quickly after deciding she should call an estate lawyer.

Renata picked Gordon up from jail once he was released on bond and then left him on the side of the road in a fit of anger. She then quickly turned around and allowed Gordon to get back in the car.
