*Warning: Major spoilers ahead*
As an entertainment editor, I'm not usually late to the game when it comes to watching shows that literally everybody is talking about. But sometimes there is just so much content out there that I can fall a bit behind. So when this past Saturday arrived—aka the day before the dramatic finale of HBO's The Undoing would air—I was kicking myself for not having watched a single episode of the Nicole Kidman vehicle.
My social media feed was full of theories about whodunnit: It just has to be Nicole Kidman—clearly she has a split personality. My friends were all texting about which major or minor character had wielded that fateful hammer: Oh, it's definitely Donald Sutherland. He's hated Hugh Grant's character for years, so he'd obviously want to frame him and get him out of the picture. Even my partner wouldn't shut up about it: I know you haven't watched yet, but I think it's that blonde one from American Horror Story working with Nicole Kidman—they're in it together!
Having no clue what anyone was talking about and desperately suffering from the most severe FOMO since Beyoncé appeared at Coachella 30 seconds after I finished saying something snarky like, "Is Coachella even a thing anymore?" I knew I had to watch. And I knew I had to watch as quickly as possible before the finale aired.
