The Chicago Cubs' Kris Bryant usually plays third base, but Joe Maddon isn't a usual manager. Sticking to his strategy of making all his players versatile, Maddon stuck Bryant out in left field for the series finale against the Dodgers. If one play can sum up how a player's day with the glove went, I believe we've found it. .@russellmartin55 muscle, CT3 hustle. pic.twitter.com/n8dEEQKoiw — Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) June 17, 2019 KB clearly made a poor throw home, needing the cut-off man's...

Is Big Little Lies Setting Up The Great Mystery Of Bonnie?

“What have you done — this time?” It’s one of the last questions we hear in Big Little Lies season 2 episode “The Tell-Tale Hearts.” While usually someone as “wanting,” to use Mary Louise Wright’s (Meryl Streep) phrasing, as Martha Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon) would be the one asked such an accusatory question in Monterey, that isn’t the case here. Instead, it’s poor broken Bonnie Carlson (Zoe Kravitz), the woman being swallowed by guilt for murdering Perry Weight (Alexander Skarsgård). The person raising the question is Bonnie’s mom, BLL new addition Elizabeth Howard (Crystal Fox).

Big Little Lies Season 2, Episode 2 "Tell-Tale Heart" Introduces A New Mom & New Rich Drama

Last week’s Big Little Lies premiere was a reintroduction to all the moms of Monterey, CA. By the end of it, secrets were still safe and the biggest showdown was between Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) and Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon). So far, Mary Louise is in the lead, insult-wise. Episode 2, “Tell-Tale Hearts,” reminds us of why we are all here. In part to love-hate these privileged women with their Telsas and perfect highlights (not so perfect bangs), but also to examine the inner-workings of a woman’s mind. The best moments in Big Little Lies happen when it shines a bright light on their dark and lurid private lives, exposing their complexities.
