As we all deal with the end of BLL, we offer up the first of our Big Little Recap episodes. Here we do our best to answer your questions to us. We also talk about our favorite moments, music, and maniacal screams from the two seasons. And of course do the very important work of giving out Monterey superlatives.

The end is here. And....we have have a lot we want to know. Streep and Kidman face off in the courtroom acting, Jane gets some good lovin', Madeline and Ed kiss and make up, Renata destroys the world in a red jumpsuit, and Bonnie says goodbye to her mother and all the lies.

We are getting stressed out with where this season is going! Mary Louise is definitely manipulating everyone-even Renata, but why? To get the twins or to get answers? Bonnie is under a lot of stress and may end up under water. Ed and Madeline try the weirdest hugging retreat to save their marriage. Has Jane ended up with a wrong kind of man again? And the biggest little lie is that we didn't get to see Madeline throw her ice cream at Meryl Louise Streep.

Meanwhile, in the 2nd grade classroom, a lesson about Charlotte's Web causes poor Amabella to have a panic attack over the impending end of the world from climate change. Madeline also ruins another puppet song for the town. And Celeste continues to try to move on from the good and bad memories of Perry-and look for....pleasure.
