Season 2 of Big little Lies wrapped Sunday night, and we’re still reeling from that ending (or lack thereof). Funny enough, it’s not at all the ending we were told we’d be getting. Remember when Shailene Woodley (who plays Jane) dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week and revealed that game-changing spoiler about the women visiting Perry’s grave only to find his body missing? Turns out, she played us. She played us good. Well done, Woodley, well done.
Here we were believing that we’d be spending the next six months wondering how on earth someone excavated Perry’s grave a la Pretty Little Liars, but instead will just be spending the foreseeable future going, “Really?? You’re going to end it like that?”

While Shailene’s ‘big little lie,’ (which was pretty farfetched to begin with) may not have happened, the finale still delivered in the drama department (spoiler alert!). We got the Celeste-Mary Louise showdown we’ve been waiting for after a whole season of ML antics (fans are still cheering) and Laura Dern’s Renata taking a baseball bat to her philandering husband’s ridiculous toy room in the most therapeutic rage scene in TV history.

Sure, we tied up some loose ends—Ed and Madeline renewed their vows, Jane pursued her attraction to the dude from the aquarium and Bonnie effectively ended her marriage by telling Nate she never really loved him (ouch)—but dare we say it all feels somewhat… abrupt? What happens after Bonnie confesses? Is this the last we’ll be seeing of the Monterey 5? Where is season three?
While it seems unlikely at this point that we’re getting a third season, fans have already expressed their thirst for more, so fingers crossed that HBO can figure out some sort of scheduling miracle.
