reesewitherspoon: Introducing Jolly. He has the best hair of all the cast !! #BigLittleLies @nicolekidman @hbo
“One of Jane’s P.T.S.D. flashbacks has merged with the present, confirming Perry’s identity; her face becomes a mask of fear. Madeline looks at her, follows her gaze to Perry, and then looks back at Jane, altered—she’s figured it out. Madeline catches Celeste’s eye and turns it toward Jane, who nods almost imperceptibly. The twist has been communicated wordlessly among all three of them.
The show understands that minor social transactions between women can express the nuances of violence with a unique specificity and a nauseating subtlety.“
#she’s beauty, she’s grace, she’ll punch you in the face (ง •̀_•́)ง
foul-mouthed & perpetually angry princess: a story of me
Big Little Lies + Hogwarts Houses:
Nathan – Gryffindor
Despite not always carrying it out, Nathan values bravery, which is why he gets so fired up when Ed threatens him. He thinks those he cares about deserve respect, but less focused on honesty and trust than a Hufflepuff.
Jane – Gryffindor
Her quote to her son “everyday we be brave” she values that most. Also valuing chilvary which is why she is so affected by those mistreating her child.
Celeste – Ravenclaw
Celeste enjoys the methodicalness of being a lawyer. “I can’t decide whether or not I’m sad” shows that she looks at even her own emotions and situation in a very logical way, albeit in denial and trauma.
Perry – Ravenclaw
It was truly quite hard to sort Perry, simply due to all the hate I have towards him. But being a bad person doesn’t make you a Slytherin. Whilst he appears ‘cunning’ through his lying, he views everything very methodically. With warped views of right and wrong he just values intelligence and his intelligence to control his children, his wife, and his homelife to perfection, with nothing going wrong.
Ed – Hufflepuff
Will fight those who cross those he loves. Loyal to his wife. Open and honest, willing to fight Nathan, speaks honestly throughout the show.
Bonnie – Hufflepuff
She is loyal to her family and caring forgiving of all within reason. Her pushing of Perry is not an act of Gryffindor bravery but rather her response to someone betraying the trust of those she cares about (and also her own childhood trauma of course).
Renata – Slytherin
Renarta is cunning with other mums and clearly has ambitious visions for her daughter and herself.
Madeline – Slytherin
Madeline was a hard choice between Hufflepuff and Slytherin. She has both the trustworthiness in her character and strong loyalty to her friends, as seen through looking after Jane. However her cunningness through attempting to manipulate those around her, coupled with her strong ambitions to: make the play work, help/save Jane, and win her daughter back, make her Slytherin traits something she clearly values more. Her cunning nature and ambitions outweigh her few Hufflepuff-like traits in my opinion.
