    I haven’t seen the episode yet but would it be her tape? I didn’t think it would get better than episode 2 for her.

    Everyone did good with what they had but this episode was a Nicole/Zoe showcase. No one else had significant material.

    Why do I have the feeling that Renata will leave Monterey forever? I’m not ready for it.

    Next week will def be Mary Louise’s backstory episode. I’m so ready for Celeste to expose the shit outta her. The trailer really killed me, especially the ‘The lie… is the friendship’ part. Nooooo!

    I think Laura, Nicole and Meryl will get in at SAG and maybe Reese too. 4 nominees? Insane, but I can see it happening, with the 5th being Olivia Colman and winning due to vote-splitting.

    O-livi-a Col-man!

    Darlings, I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I’m living for the Nicole Kidman’s love. I’ve been saying she’s been the best since the season started. And you wake up now. You little fools.

    Thatcher honey, NICOLE is PHE-NOMENAL in this episode. You’re going to adore her stellar & fine performance.

    Can they stop with the freaking flashbacks? Half of this season were flashbacks.

    Episode 6 is the best episode of the season by far. What they do with Celeste is such a crucial chapter in the feminism the show has explored with abusive relationships. The scene where she initially testifies was BRUTAL. The best work Nicole has done all season long, too. I want to share this quote in particular, about why people stay with abusers (this especially hits home for me, and I have felt the exact same way she has): “I loved him. I always thought he would get better. He didn’t. When I was happy, I stayed because I was happy. And when I was depressed, I stayed because I was depressed. Either way I was afraid. I was afraid of being alone. I stayed to survive.”

    Bonnie’s confession to her mother was also extraordinarily well written and acted. The writing crafted the perfect backstory for her that fits with the finale of season one. That scene crystallized every moment of her entire season two storyline. Bravo, bravo.

    Next week, I’m expecting an enormously satisfying end with Nicole and Meryl, arguably the two best actresses in Hollywood today, going head to head in a courtroom scene.

    Olivia Colman can win for season four of The Crown. Especially if Kidman brings it in showdown with Meryl next week, I don’t know how you ignore this. (Well, on second thought, she was ignored for her flawless work in Destroyer, so anything can happen.)

    Zoë Kravitz was fantastic. It was the first time she’s been given material to match the other ladies, and also the first time I thought she could be a viable Emmy nominee. Unfortunately, she falls fourth in an internal supporting actress battle with Streep, Dern, & Woodley in a far more competitive Drama field. In Limited Series, she might have pulled it off somehow with seven or eight nominees maybe, but all the Drama contenders are coming back next year. This episode finally had the level of momentum that the past two episodes should have had but didn’t. Meryl on the witness stand in the season finale? My body is ready, bitches! “A lawyer who defends himself in court has a fool for a client.” That smirk on Mary Louise’s face? Take heed, Celeste…

    No, the episode with her daughter’s party should be her tape. Or when she found out about the bankruptcy.

    Eh, she wasn’t the best at the start of the season. Dern was MVP for sure, but these last couple episodes have been amazing for Kidman.

    It’s at 81% now, but I’m surprised. I thought that episode 5 would’ve been the one to get lower reviews. But even that had 100% straight away and then changed to 94%.

    Nicole. Kidman. That’s it. Oh my god, this may be one of her best, if not her single best performance on this show. Her mannerisms, especially her facial ones, are so spot on that I felt like watching a real person on the stand. The way she sometimes stutters, pauses, and repeats certain words – I just can’t. Olivia Colman vs. her is going to be one epic battle. Flawless work.

    And speaking of flawless, Shailene Woodley’s scene with Streep was dynamite. The crack in her voice as Mary Louise closed the door was absolutely heartbreaking. I felt her sorrow, pain, and worry in that scene. Just like Kidman, she’s so natural. I will be so sad to see her get snubbed next year. And Zoe Kravitz was just as excellent, and after this episode I am officially calling her Emmy-worthy. Bonnie telling her bother why she resents her is one of the best, most well-written scenes they’ve done, and Kravitz hit all notes PERFECTLY. Laura Dern, too, was amazing (as always) and she channels Renata’s pain so beautifully.

    David E. Kelley’s script was absolute perfection. It’s great to have a courtroom drama that feels realistic – no people just screaming at each other. Next week is going to be absolute dynamite and I’m ready for Kidman to deliver yet again.

    10/10
