We found out a lot more information on Kate tonight on Secrets and Lies Season 2 and while Eric wanted to think it put her in a different light, they were not the best secrets to find out. Cornell seems to be opening her scope of possible suspects on ABC’s Secrets and Lies 2016, but it all comes back to Eric, right? Check out all the details below in our Secrets and Lies Season 2 recap from tonight!
Last week on ABC’s Secrets and Lies 2016, the episode seemed to focus on Liam, Kate’s assistant, and trying to find him. While working together, Danny and Eric were able to find him, but then the Cornell got to him first. They paid his bond and got him out, only to question him on things and it looks like he is not Kate’s son, but he did steal identities from clients and Eric tricked him into getting arrested! We found out that Amanda and her husband are separated. Neil was getting up on the girl with Danny’s daughter, so they corner him about this.
Warning: This post contains spoilers on the Secrets and Lies premiere tonight on ABC, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
We start with Danny and Eric and Danny said he is NYPD and his daughter is missing. Eric is pissed he knows Cornell. We flash back to Danny and his daughter and she had a boy hidden in her closet. He said she is sleeping her way through the whole damn senior class. After that, she left that night. He said he needed something from Cornell and she needed something from him. He said he is no longer a suspect in the case and Danny said he still is, unless she gives updates to him on the case as a grieving husband.
Now we are at the station and Cornell is questioning Neil. He said he knew the girl in the photo and lied. He was married three times, so he pays for the girls now because it is easier. He only has her cell phone number, as they met in a bar. She questions why an escort wouldn’t go through a service and her cell is disconnected, but she is not arresting him and releases him.
The next day comes and Cornell brings Kate’s mail from the PO Box to Eric, as he is trying to get into Kate’s tablet. He questions why she let Neil go, but she said he lied and that doesn’t make him the killer. She mentions a credit card charge on Kate’s card for a private DNA service and she paid off some delinquent mortgage in Boone. Eric leaves and goes to the office, as he walks in to Patrick and Neil arguing. Eric goes off on Neil and mentions the bank account he set up and if he finds out he killed Kate. Patrick tells him to leave and he said he will and he quits!
At Eric’s place, Patrick and Amanda are there and they are trying to figure out about this property in Boone. He said he never met any of her family or friends, as she said she didn’t have any. He thinks Kate was paying off the extortionist and is going to Boone, so Patrick said he is going with him. He then mentions Danny is a detective, which Eric never told. He said Neil mentioned it. Amanda is worried about Danny and said she’ll check him out, as Eric and Patrick leave for Boone.
Cornell’s assistant found Carly, the prostitute that Neil had at the party and slept with, and the service she works for. So, he setup a meeting with her and Cornell arrests her! At the station, walking to the interrogation room, she seems to know a few of the guys working there! Cornell questions her about Neil and the party and if she knew Kate, but no luck. She ends up arresting Carly for solicitation on Secrets and Lies Season 2.
Melanie comes in to bring treats for the boys. Turns out Eric told Patrick about Amanda’s breakup and he told Melanie, which Amanda is not happy about! Eric said they have too many secrets in the family. Eric and Patrick are driving to Boone and Patrick questions Danny and why Cornell is using him. He questions why Danny is looking for the girl. Eric asked why he is obsessed with the guy, but Patrick said he is just making conversation, which I don’t believe!
Eric and Patrick get to the house and a lady answers, who turns out to be Kate’s mother! She has not talked to Kate since she was 16 years old and did not know she paid off the mortgage and doesn’t even know her daughter is dead! Cornell now goes to talk to Amanda and wants her outfit she was wearing the night of the party. Amanda said she did not kill her and actually loved her. They flash back to Kate and Amanda and Kate saying she wanted a man that was not available and she did what she had to do to get him, which Amanda was shocked by! She actually takes the cigarette Amanda was smoking to check for DNA.
Back to Boone, we see Eric and Patrick talking to Kate’s mother and she said she has not talked to her daughter since she left at 16. Eric said she had and showed her the call record. She said that is not her phone number, but Jake’s number, her ex-boyfriend! It turns out this is the man that Kate must have wanted and got pregnant from, so Eric goes to find him and he said he raped Kate and punches him out! Inside the house, Jake said it was mutual and 16 was the age of consent there. He should have resisted, but he did care for her. He said the first call was to see if he still lived there and the second time she was in town and wanted to see him. They flash back to them meeting and she said she talked to the parents of their son and his name is Charlie. She had a photo of their son and she was asking permission from Jake to tell him who his son was, but he said no.
Eric and Patrick get some food and it turns into an argument, as Patrick is sick of everyone disrespecting his wife. Eric said you see your wife the way you want to see her, which Patrick said you wouldn’t know anything about that. Now we have Danny and Cornell meeting and she said he did not stick to their agreement. He talks about his partner abusing his daughter since she was 13 years old, which then he committed suicide. She said told him he had Carly in possession and will get the details on his daughter from her. She gets back to the station and wants to question Carly, but the guard said she was signed out about an hour ago. She said she was supposed to be held, but the guard said that is above his pay grade. She then asked who signed her out and he said that is above her pay grade! Her boss???
On the way home for Patrick and Eric, they talk about their mother and Eric said every time their father would go out of town their mother would get drunk and turn into a mess and it was bad. He drops Patrick off and Patrick said to talk to their father. Then Danny comes out and Patrick goes home. Danny said his daughter is all he has in this world and without him, he can’t find her. He said the cops released Carly and Neil is the only one that can help them. Neil is the last connection to his daughter and if he’ll tell the truth to anyone, it is Eric. Knock on the door and Amanda comes in. She said Danny left in the middle of a trial and there is a warrant out for his arrest and he should leave before the cops get there, so he does.
Cornell is now looking at the security footage, which is the same that Eric looked at and saw that strange lady thinking of coming into the building, but who is this lady? Now her boss comes in and he questions about Danny being involved and she never puts anyone else before the case. He said place Danny under arrest or she is suspended!!!
