Sharp Objects Will Make Any Dysfunctional Family Feel Like the Freakin' Brady Bunch
The following contains spoilers for the gripping HBO miniseries Sharp Objects.
With every passing week, HBO's dramatic miniseries Sharp Objects crosses even closer into absolute sh*tshow territory — in the best way! Fans pegged Amy Adams's performance playing complicated journalist Camille Preaker as Emmy-award material after a single episode, and after the show's sophomore instalment, the obsession is stronger than ever.
By episode two, the protagonist's hometown of Wind Gap, MO, has already experienced several brutal child deaths and is plagued by rumours of a vengeful "woman in white" who murders kids in the woods . . . yet somehow, it's Camille's fraught relationship with her narcissistic, virtue-signaling mother (Adora) and two-faced half-sister (Amma) that really fills you with dread. If you ever worry that your family is a touch dysfunctional, a dose of this show will probably make you feel like a wholesome member of The Brady Bunch.
Between Camille's obvious alcoholism, Amma's shadiness, Adora's self-absorbed method of grieving, and the entire town of Wind Gap's dreary nature, there is a whole lot for fans to freak out about during episode two. Ahead, relive the episode through their passionate reactions!
