Little Fires Everywhere – Episodes

Before you ask how many episodes are there in Little Fires Everywhere, I want to tell you that there are 8 episodes. Here is will briefly explain the first two episodes so that you can get comfortable with the entire series. Little Fires Everywhere has a rating of 7.7 on IMDb.

Let me give you a brief explanation of the first episode.

In 1997, the Richardsons' house is burning down, and a firefighter notifies journalist Elena that it was deliberately set on fire while she was inside. Elena had reported a parked car in the driveway to the police four months earlier. Later, she got a call from the car's owner regarding a rental offer. Mia Warren is a single mother who lives in her vehicle with her baby girl Pearl. Elena rents the house to Mia on the spot, perceiving her as down on her luck, only later calling the citations listed on her mortgage application. The Warrens move into the neighborhood, and Pearl befriends Elena's son, Moody. Elena lives a structured life and has disagreements with her daughter Izzy about playing a musical instrument and trimming her hair. In the meantime, Pearl is unhappy with her mother's constant movement between cities. Elena offers Mia a job as a property manager after noticing her working as a waitress. Mia, offended, declines the offer. When she sees how many hours Pearl spends at Elena's house, she changes her mind and begins to comfort Izzy. Mia awakens one night from a recurring nightmare about a man looking at her in the metro.

Episode 2 starts in 1983. Young Mia is having an affair with a man in a car, and her daughter Pearl sleeps in the car. Both mothers prepare their children for the first day of school in September 1997. Mia begins working as a housekeeper. Bill instructs his wife Elena to face Mia about her phony references, but Elena finds it difficult to initiate the conversation. Pearl's lessons are discussed with the guidance counselor at Shaker High School. He believes she requires assistance and is skeptical that she has taken Geometry and wishes to switch to Algebra. Pearl decides to write to safeguard her case and requests feedback from Elena. Lexie transforms Pearl's letter into an article for her Yale application. Elena goes to the guidance counselor to help Pearl with her problem, but she notices Izzy getting into new trouble all the time.
