A series of photos from the "Big Little Lies" set that surfaced online this week suggest that Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep's characters have quite the cold relationship on the show -- and it's going to cause some delicious onscreen drama.

That was the conclusion drawn by fans after some paparazzi shots from the show's Los Angeles shoot were shared on social media. The pictures feature Witherspoon's character, Madeline Mackenzie, hurling an ice cream cone at the back of the head of Streep's character, Mary Louise Wright (who is -- SPOILER ALERT -- the mother of Alexander Skarsgaard's now-deceased Perry, and the mother-in-law of Nicole Kidman's Celeste).



And if those images weren't a tasty enough tease for fans of the acclaimed HBO series, Witherspoon herself got in on the fun, sharing some behind the scenes scoop about what happened after she lobbed those scoops at Streep.





"I am praying Reese pelts Meryl with that ice cream," one fan wrote on Twitter.

"Oh Matt! No need to pray. I got her !" Witherspoon replied, confirming that her cone did indeed make contact with her fellow Oscar winner.

Legends pelting legends with frozen desserts. There's just no topping that.



Agreed, HBO. Agreed.

We can't wait to watch this chilly relationship unfold on the new seas of "BLL," which is set to debut on HBO sometime in 2019.
