Note: This article contains major spoilers from the first six episodes of the HBO drama Big Little Lies and speculation about who is going to get killed.
In the latest episode of Big Little Lies, Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Ed (Adam Scott) frantically discuss how their friend Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) broke his urethra after a tennis racket whacked him in the penis. The conversation is sensational, yet what's going on in the background is more interesting. Chloe, the couple's precocious daughter, watches and dances along to a live music performance on TV. Her parents tell her to go to bed. She begs for a few more seconds.
Chloe, you see, is a star. And critics and fans of the show have noticed: Whether writers are wondering if she's a "cyborg" and questioning her NPR-honed tastes or praising her as the show's "beyond-her-years spiritual DJ," the pint-sized curator is an essential part of the show's self-consciously tasteful, slightly sinister milieu. Her iPhone houses your aspirational playlist.
