Adam Scott, who played Ed in Big Little Lies, recently spoke to the LA Times about the possibility of a season 2 of the show:
“A lot was left unsaid,” Scott notes. “But there’s also something great about that being the end as well. It’s a terrific ending.… I think it’s cool to end on such an ambiguous note.”
Some of that ambiguity has to do with the tension between Ed and Witherspoon’s Madeline. She’s had an affair, which Ed kind of knows about. And yet, there he is on stage, at the big Trivia Night gala, making like “Blue Hawaii” Elvis, singing “The Wonder of You.”
“He chose that song for specific reason … to speak directly to his wife,” Scott says. “Things sort of come to a head there at the party and I think Ed’s suspicions that he didn’t want to fully explore for fear of what he might learn, the tipping point finally came when he walked into the party and he put it all together. And I think in the process of singing that song, he found his love for his wife again.”
