Tiny Detail In Big Little Lies Credits Finally Makes Sense
Ever since ‘Big Little Lies’ hit TV screens, it’s been a knockout success. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley lead a strong cast, which also includes Tarzan’s Alexander Skarsgard.
The show delivers a chilling insights into domestic violence through Nicole Kidman’s character, Celeste, and it’s because of the show’s bravery that it’s left the mark it has in just 7 short episodes.
The finale aired last night, and the internet was instantly abuzz with accolades and the hope that the show would continue for a second season.
Fans learned what really went down at the Monterey trivia night and were able to pick up on the subtler hints the show has been dropping since episode one.
One eagle-eyed fan even pointed out the show was low-key telling us who the killer was from the very beginning — right from the opening credits!
After the show’s finale, a Reddit user posted that there was more to the show’s opening than just those sweeping seaside views and that soulful Michael Kiwanuka song.
That shot of the children all playing in a line actually reveals a major plot point.
All season long, both the audience and the main characters were trying to figure out which child was hurting Renata Klein’s (Laura Dern) daughter Amabella. In the finale, we learn the abusive apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and Celeste’s (Nicole Kidman) son Max is actually the bully.
But anyone who paid close enough attention to the opening credits could have figured that out long ago. The poster pointed out Max is the only kid featured in the show to not appear in the opening credits, although his twin brother, Josh, does.
This could have been a nod to viewers that Max doesn’t exactly get along with the rest of the kids.
A commenter went on to point out that not only does the title sequence reveal the classroom bully, but it also hints at who the killer is in the end.
In the finale, Celeste finally confronts her abusive husband Perry (Skarsgård) at the trivia night, and all the women discover Perry was also Jane’s rapist.
A fight breaks out between Perry and the women, until Bonnie (Kravitz) pushes Perry down a staircase and kills him.
The rest of the women then cover up Bonnie’s murder for her when the police get involved. Bizarrely, this conclusion can be drawn from when the main cast walk toward the camera in the credits.
Bonnie comes first, and then the rest of the women follow after, showing they “have her back” in a sense.
