Jane Chapman deflects Ziggy Chapman‘s questions about why they moved in Big Little Lies season 1 episode 2. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of the premiere.
Big Little Lies season 1 episode 2 opens with Madeline Mackenzie staring out at the ocean. Her daughter Chloe Mackenzie asks whys he stares out at the ocean so much.
Later, Jane drops Ziggy off at school. She watches him from the car and sees that he doesn’t receive an invitation to a party.
Back at Madeline’s house that night, she fights with her husband Ed Mackenzie. He says he’s upset about Ziggy being ostracized at school, but Ed can tell she’s really upset about her ex-husband Nathan Carlson.
Celeste Wright arrives home after going out for drinks with Madeline. She finds flowers from her husband Perry Wright, who she’d been fighting with.
Madeline goes to the community theater to check on her production of Avenue Q. She finds out that the mayor has decided not to fund the play.
Madeline talks to her older daughter Abigail Carlson. She tells her that when the day comes that she decides to have sex, she should be able to talk to Madeline about it. Abigail says okay but is dismissive.
At the end of the episode, Madeline makes up with Ed. She assures him he’s the only one she loves. Meanwhile, Celeste has webcam sex with Perry.
