*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
While I could easily go on and on about tonight’s episode of Big Little Lies and how Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) is trying to secure custody of Celeste’s (Nicole Kidman) two children, I can’t stop thinking about the therapist, Dr. Amanda Reisman (Robin Weigert), who isn’t convincing me that she can be trusted.
Here’s what you need to know: On season two, episode four of BLL, Mary Louise seeks out a family law attorney after deeming her daughter-in-law, Celeste, a bad mother to her grandchildren, Max (Nicholas Crovetti) and Josh (Cameron Crovetti).
After receiving the custody papers from Mary Louise, Celeste confides in Dr. Reisman. Sure, the therapist promises that she can’t discuss anything in court, since she’s bound by a doctor-patient confidentiality agreement. However, I’m highly skeptical of the recurring character.
