Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere finale is brimming with tension and kept us on the edge of our seats. For those who read Celeste Ng’s novel and have been following along with the series, you’ve probably noticed some differences. But the final episode, which premiered on April 22, delivers a twist that significantly deviates from the book. That twist, of course, has to do with who is behind the Richardsons’ house fire.
So, who is responsible for the arsonist act? Unlike Ng’s work, it’s not Izzy. It’s actually all the Richardson children except Izzy. Talk about irony. In the concluding installment, all of the kids — Trip, Moody, Lexie, and Izzy — experience some sort of heartache that’s intertwined with Mia and Pearl Warren.

Izzy also grows closer to Mia and visits her apartment following Bebe Chow’s custody loss in court.
