Big Little Lies season 2 episode 1 premiered recently and what an episode it has been. The new episode picked up from the "mysterious" death of Perry (played by Alexander Skarsgård) from the season 1 finale. The new season sees the return of the star-studded cast including Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz. But the biggest cast addition this season was Meryl Streep. The Academy Award aka Oscar winner actress made her television debut with Big Little Lies season 2 and taken the show to a new height. The actress plays Perry's mother Mary Louis Wright on the show. 

As though there isn't enough proof that Meryl is an outstanding actress, she proved it once again with the new season's first episode with a mere scream. Warning: Possible spoilers ahead. The new episode witnessed Meryl breaking down on the dinner table. Her pain-filled scream sent shivers down the spine and Twitter hasn't stopped talking about it. While many were left shocked by how contiguous her pain is in the episode, others demanded that Meryl wins an Emmy for just the scream. 

Check out the reactions below: 

Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Meryl's co-star Shailene spoke about working with the legendary actress. "I think because she's probably used to people treating her like ‘Meryl Streep' instead of just approaching her as a human, she's so wonderfully generous and immediately disarms you with her generosity that you sort of forget for a moment that you're working with a master of her craft. And then the cameras start rolling and she does the thing [snaps] and all of a sudden you go, ‘Oh, God. What am I doing? I gotta get my stuff together,'" she said on the show. 

That's not all. The actress also reenacted the scream on the night show and boy, what a sight it was. Check it out below:
