Big Little Lies Chapter 30

By Liane Moriarty

Chapter 30

  • Madeline is actually really happy to come to the rescue, because she feels like her own home life is spiraling out of control. 
  • Nothing is wrong, per se, but she's really upset about Abigail moving in with her father and Bonnie. 
  • So it's nice to play the put-together hero. 
  • It's going to be easy enough to put together the family tree, but there's one small hitch: Ziggy wants to know the name of his dad. 
  • He starts getting worked up, and so does Jane. 
  • Luckily, Madeline is in put-together mode, and whisks Ziggy off for a bedtime story. The family tree is almost complete. 
  • When she comes back, Jane has finished gluing on the photos. 
  • She admits to Madeline that she does know Ziggy's dad's name. 
  • He's called Saxon Banks. And, she adds, he wasn't very nice. 
  • The way she says it makes it clear that that's an understatement. 
  • "What did that bastard do to you?" asks Madeline.
