For Jean-Marc Vallee, Witherspoon wanting a reunion on Big Littles Lies with her Wild director led him to directing all seven episodes of the HBO drama written by David E. Kelley.

"She convinced me!" Vallee tells The Hollywood Reporter. Originally, Vallee was only attached to direct the first two episodes, but that all changed with a push from Witherspoon and others on the show. "Reese and Nicole and the kids I casted everyone went, "We want you to do everything." I said, "OK, let's try it."

Keeping Vallee on board as director of the series also meant he'd be directing the finale, the final episode where viewers would finally find out who died and how. And it all went down in a deadly night of fundraising.

At the school's trivia night that has been teased all season long Celeste (Kidman) tells Perry (Alexander Skarsgard) she is leaving him after countless acts of abuse which have now begun to impact their children. It's revealed that Max, one of their twin boys is in fact the bully that has been hurting Renata's (Laura Dern) daughter Amabella.

When Celeste runs to friends Madeline (Witherspoon) and Jane (Shailene Woodley) for help, Perry ultimately finds her. There Jane realizes that Celeste's husband is in fact the man that raped her. In a scene of chaos, Perry strikes Celeste one again, but this time she's not alone. Madeline, Renata and Jane team up to take the mad man down, but in the end Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) is the one to help push him to his death, literally.

"He becomes nuts again. But that would be the last time because he doesn't realize he has the ultimate force of nature in front of him," says Vallee. "These women are so powerful. Together, they are as powerful as the ocean and the ocean is f—ing angry."

In his response, Vallee opined "To do a season two, I'm not for it. Let's move on and do something else! If there's an opportunity to reunite with Reese, Nicole and these characters of course, I'll be a part of it, but Big Little Lies One is a one-time deal. Big Little Lies Two? Nah. The end is for the audience to talk about. Imagine what you want to imagine and that's it. We won't give you a season two because it's so good like this. Why spoil it?"

THR talked further with Vallee about the finale, the open-ended final scene and why the series should not return for a second season.
