So, it lastly occurred: Reese Witherspoon vs. Meryl Streep, that includes a devious, well-sprinkled ice cream cone. Within the newest episode of Large Little Lies, we, in the end, uncover the origin of these unimaginable, viral paparazzi photographs of Witherspoon hurling ice cream at Streep on the present’s set. However although the pap photographs confirmed Witherspoon, in character as Madeline, throwing the ice cream in the back of Streep’s head with all her would possibly, it seems that the present wound up reducing that particular second out of the episode—to the devastation of thousands and thousands, absolutely.
