Season 2 of HBO’s hit series Big Little Lies is currently filming, and we’ve been blessed with an uncursed image of Reese Witherspoon throwing an ice cream cone at Meryl Streep.

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.

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.
