Reese Witherspoon pelts Meryl Streep with ice cream in new Big Little Lies and yeah, not surprised

Hardly the most surprising turn of events for Madeline.

If you've never seen an episode of Big Little Lies, you need to stop what you're doing, long onto the World Wide Web on desktop, and go watch the entire first season of Big Little Lies.

It's worth it, trust us.

If you are a fan of the show though, you'll be more than well aware that the series's second season is due to drop onto our screens some time next year.

Not a whole lot of information has been released about the plot, but this week, we were treated to a bit of an inside scoop (oi oi) as to what's about to go down.

And it involves Reese Witherspoon hurling an ice cream cone directly at Meryl Streep.

Iconic.

In the upcoming series of the show, Meryl is set to play Celeste's mother-in-law following the death of her husband.

Celeste, played by Nicole Kidman, was being emotionally and physically abused by her husband up until his eventual death at the end of season one.

It makes sense then that Reese's character, Madeline, isn't all that happy that remnants of her friend's abuser (his mother) are showing up in her town.

So she throws an ice cream at her. We can only assume this is what happens.

Reese even took to Twitter herself to confirm that she did indeed hit Meryl with the cone. Responding to another tweet, she said: "Oh Matt. No need to pray. I got her."

A true cultural icon of our time.

Big Little Lies returns in 2019.
