Perfect ending! I read the book and thought it was an incredible adaptation.

I watched 4 and 5 2 to go!

They werent as interesting to me as the first few but the show is always good.

I can’t really blame Renata for being upset about her daughter! I would be livid if someone was biting and choking my kid at school. But not knowing its 100% Ziggy doing it is frustrating.

Definitely interesting to see more of Jane's story but I'm confused, she went to see the guy at the end of episode 5 but then we just saw her driving away, so was that her rapist or not?

I did NOT see that accident with Madeline coming, that was nuts! I feel bad for Ed! I hate that Madeline had an affair.

It was hard to watch Celeste get upset at the therapist for her asking about the abuse she was dealing with. I was so glad when Celeste seemed to be making progress near the end there but of course she goes right back to Perry. Ugh. And I bet the therapist is right, I bet her sons do know whats happening between them with the abuse.

I'm wondering that too. I've heard she doesn't even have the affair in the book.

The dynamics of these scenes are how counseling an abusive pairing usually goes. Celeste telling the counselor about the abuse could get her in trouble so she isn't forthcoming. Perry IS forthcoming....but only to a certain point. By admitting it turned physical, he gets to decide how much he abuses her and the degree to which it's dangerous. And he tries to manipulate the session by talking about his insecurity that Celeste will leave him. Celeste feels the need to make him feel better. Lesser therapists can get sucked in which is why couples therapy isn't recommended for couples in abusive relationships.

Celeste stays because she's been conditioned to care for Perry and he gaslights her into believing she's partially responsible for the abuse--that she secretly likes it.

The therapy scenes and abuse storyline are the most compelling, IMO.
I thought this as well. The therapy scenes were so heartwrenching but so stunning at the same time. Nicole was remarkable.

I love the therapist so much! I love that she’s trying to help Celeste. I agree that storyline is one of the more riveting. I'm surprised that Perry didn't beat her badly after she lopped his penis with the racket. I'm so glad shes on her way to getting out of that.

I feel bad for Ed. I wish Madeline treated him a bit better. And Madeline's ex is a nut case to me. There are multiple suspects on this show. Bonnie is such a good person and so nice, she can do better . But her whole ZEN attitude can be so annoying. I don't blame Ed and Madeline for being appalled at what their daughter was doing.

Ugh Renata is so annoying.

How is this show ending after 1 more episode? I dont get how they are going to resolve everything???

Ahh then what's the point to have in the show if her husband ever find out about her affair.. Sigh..

I finished the series. The ending was okay. I found it weird they focused on a party for the last episode?

I'm pretty sure Ed knew about the affair because he kept looking at them at the party.... WE just didnt see how he handled it. And I love Madeline so I was disappointed she did it. But maybe it was to show her daughter she wasn't perfect. But that wasnt really adam scott singing right? it didnt sound like him at all. Why did they pick that voice? So weird. The "nathan" singer sounded more like Ed to me.

I'm sorry but I cant stand Nathan, he is such a jerk and hes so rude to Ed. Cant stand that guy. But honestly, what was with all the singing?

Tom is cute. When he said he was trying to ask Jane out and she was like "You're straight?" that was so funny.

I love Alexander Skarsgard so much and Eric from TB was my fav but man this show really makes me hate his guts. I wanted Celeste to leave so bad.

I'm pretty disappointed with
Spoiler:
being the rapist, I mean, I had that guessed since like 102 but I thought there was no way it would be that predictable. But I guess with the name change she wouldn't have been able to hear the name and remember...

The reveal on who was bullying the girl was a surprise to me but it does make sense.

Spoiler:


The show just has such great cinematography and I love how they flash little scenes without dialogue, its super impactful. Im confused though, the scene on the beach with Jane holding the gun at the rapist... was she imagining that scene or did it actually happen?

The Madeline/Jane friendship was my favorite interaction!

I wasnt sure how they were going to resolve everything but they actually did a decent job. The show could totally have another season I mean, there is so much story to tell, but it also fits fine for a mini series, it felt complete. The ending montage of scenes with the women was really great...

Bonnie has a history with domestic violence (her father was abusive in the books)
She knew and saw the signs in Celeste during the party
the show never explains it
