Differences Between Big Little Lies The Show and The Book

HBO

Meryl Streep blessed our television screens because Mary Louise wanted to know what exactly happened to her son. We’re going to go out on a limb here and assume that “bad parenting” wasn’t the answer she’s looking for. Because the book ends alongside season one with only the immediate consequences of Perry’s death, Mary Louise never needs to come help take care of her grandchildren, and Bonnie’s literary confession answers Mary Louise’s whodunit before she could even buy a plane ticket. Finding a reason to bring Meryl into the Big Little Lies fold is the best off-script surprise HBO could have ever given us.
