Celeste decides to make the first steps in moving out.
The finale opens in the Wright home with Celeste (Nicole Kidman) badly hurt by her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgård). In a devastating scene at her therapist, Celeste boils down the plan to get an apartment with her children but says that she needs to go to their school fundraiser first before leaving Perry.
We temporarily feel OK for a moment when she sets up her new apartment, but then the property manager accidentally alerts Perry to the news (ugh). The tension cuts deeply when they're in the car together at the Audrey and Elvis-themed school gala, Trivia Night. It feels like a horror scene, and we expect that things can only get worse. And they do.
