With the 89th Academy Awards set to air on ABC this Sunday, February 26, HBO has decided to make its own Sunday night TV lineup available for streaming a little early. New episodes of 'Girls,' 'Big Little Lies,' and 'Crashing' will all debut ahead of their usual Sunday broadcast times through HBO Go, HBO Now, and HBO On Demand this Friday, February 24, leaving Sunday free for the Oscars.
Here's a rundown of the upcoming episodes per HBO:
'Big Little Lies' Episode 2 "Serious Mothering" - Jane (Shailene Woodley) deflects Ziggy’s (Iain Armitage) questions about why they moved to Monterey. Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) gets news that her community theater production might get derailed, and is outraged over a slight from Renata (Laura Dern). Celeste (Nicole Kidman) suggests to Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) that they see a counselor. Nathan (James Tupper) and Ed (Adam Scott) meet in hopes of smoothing out the tensions between their wives, and themselves. Written by David E. Kelley; directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.
