All in Good Storytime 📚 Episode 34

All in Good Storytime is an interactive, bookish, book club podcast hosted by Alanna, Katya, and Tia. To join the club, make sure you're following us on Twitter to get updates on what book we're reading and to what chapter we are reading through (or what anime we're watching and what episode we are watching through), and listen to the podcast here or on iTunes (see link below) to join in on the discussion. And don't forget to read along!

In the 34th episode of All in Good Storytime, we watch the third episode of Big Little Lies on HBO. In this episode, Madeline and Renata's feud escalates as Amabella finally has her birthday party and Madeline makes good on her promise to host an alternative party at Disney's Frozen on Ice. Renata explicitly considers killing Madeline. Madeline learns that Abigail has decided to go live with her father and we question whether this decision was truly driven by Madeline's helicopter parenting or if it possibly involved Ed.

We discuss how Bonnie's character is only developed as an adversary for Madeline and how the town as a whole also has a complicated relationship with her. Jane confides in Madeline about her history of rape, and based on her flashbacks we theorize that Perry may have been her assailant. We realize that Jane's PTSD, Ziggy's sleepwalking, and the gun under Jane's pillow are a potentially lethal combination. We examine the heartbreaking scene where Celeste and Perry finally go to counseling in an attempt to mend their broken marriage.

Next week we will be watching episode 4 of Big Little Lies on HBO.
