Shailene Woodley might have just spoiled the entire ending of 'Big Little Lies.'
Shailene Woodley might have just legally revealed the entire finale of Big Little Lies while showing up on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and if what she narrates is actually genuine, the finale of HBO’s show is going to be bonkers.
Here's how it went down at Kimmel’s. Jimmy bantered with Shailene that HBO wouldn't even let slip a clip of the final episode. That's how much the studio is keeping this under folds.
However, in exchange, they got a surprising spoiler from Shailene and here’s what the 27-year-old actor said: "This whole time they've said don't say anything. So people ask what the show is about and you can't give anything away.” She then added -- at the beginning of the next episode, there’s a little bit of a cliffhanger, and all the women go to visit Perry's grave only to find his body missing.
Jimmy asked for simplification though, since suspense would suggest there would pretty much be a third season of the show. Woodley explained viewers would still have an hour to figure out given its just the beginning of the next episode.
Jimmy then reminds her that the scene is not technically a cliffhanger.
Whatever the case, that'd be a crucial plot leak, if true. There are a few aspects about this that need to be considered quite seriously, albeit because it's slightly perplexing.
It's also possible they're simply trying to misdirect fans with made-up spoilers.
Also, while Woodley says this takes place at the starting of the episode, the rest of the episodes could be nothing but just flashbacks, implying them discovering the lack of a body could actually be the conclusion of the whole thing.
Big Little Lies features the stars like, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, and Zoë Kravitz, and follows the story of five women in Monterey, California, who become entangled in a murder inspection. Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, James Tupper, and Jeffrey Nordling feature in assisting roles. Academy honoree, Meryl Streep joined the main cast for the second season.
Critically revered, the series went on to receive several accolades. It garnered 16 'Emmy Award' nods and won eight, including Outstanding Limited Series and acting allots for Kidman, Skarsgård, and Dern. The trio also won 'Golden Globe Awards' in addition to a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film triumph for the series. Kidman and Skarsgård likewise accrued Screen Actors Guild Awards for their performances.
