Season 1 of Big Little Lies was about friendship and relationships, but the storyline truly centered around the fact that Renata’s (Laura Dern) daughter, Amabella, was being bullied by somebody at school.
In this flashback video, Renata confronts her daughter and realizing she’s been bitten, tells her that she needs to speak up and tell her exactly who it was who did this to her.
“Honey? Mommy is getting very upset. I’m getting very, very upset because someone is bullying you. And you never let a bully win. Do you hear me? You have to speak up, Amabella. You have to be a big girl and use your voice in this world!” Renata says. Watch the clip above to see how the entire scene plays out!
