The show won’t return until 2019, but we at least have this paparazzi photo of Witherspoon’s Madeline Martha Mackenzie in the middle of a heated moment with Streep’s new character Mary Louise Wright, the mother-in-law of Nicole Kidman’s Celeste Wright. There are other photos featuring Madeline’s daughter looking shocked, but Witherspoon clarified the hit was direct.
Oh Matt! No need to pray. I got her ! 🍦🎯 https://t.co/nMitvPXETc

Since Witherspoon was putting out a “mood,” the internet quickly memed the moment.

BBC drama Killing Eve got in on it too, posting a scene from the first episode in which killer Villanelle gets revenge on a little girl, via her ice cream.

This is the next logical step, after Witherspoon publicly pondered a meme.

This is the second photo of Streep from set, following one posted by Kidman in April.
