Things are not looking good for a certain couple on Secrets and Lies Season 2, as all things definitely pointed at Patrick and Melanie tonight on ABC’s Secrets and Lies 2016! I mean, we have no proof of anything, but Eric (Michael Ealy) definitely found more and more clues pointing at them, as Melanie deleted the security footage the night Kate died??? 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, Eric got the pleasure of meeting Kate’s mother, who he did not know was alive. It turns out, Kate ended up getting pregnant by her mother’s boyfriend at the time and left town. Kate was back in town to pay off her mother’s mortgage and meet with the boyfriend about their son learning who his biological parents were, which he said no to. Cornell found the prostitute in the photos with Danny’s daughter, but she was not speaking and Cornell’s boss got her out of jail because she sleeps with half the force! Patrick is not a happy man, so I am thinking he has something to do with this murder, as his drinking is a big issue and his jealousy of Eric.
Warning: This post contains spoilers on Secrets and Lies tonight on ABC, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
Amanda said she had to get rid of Danny and why is Eric listening to him. We find out that Amanda’s husband filed for divorce. She wants kids and he doesn’t, so that is why they are not together. The next day comes and we see Eric getting into work, as the front desk lady stops him and said a Mr. Peterson is there to meet with Kate! Eric talks to him and the guy said the meeting was over investments. Eric tells him that Kate died and she was murdered, but he won’t explain anything else or who he is. Why does Eric let him leave???
Now Cornell is questioning some guy about a video of Kate at a diner with some lady. She wants to know if she ever mentioned the lady’s name, but the guy said he didn’t hear. Her and a colleague head out to a motel to find Danny, but he is gone when they got there. He questions that Cornell tipped him off to leave and Cornell said why would she do that? She gives her phone for him to check and nothing. However, she has another phone in her vest and a text from Danny to meet at 2pm that day.
The sergeant wants to know about Danny getting out. He then questions who the lady was at the diner and then talks to Cornell about the day and she can take the day off. At the office, Patrick brings up a copy of the drivers license of the guy there for the meeting with Kate. Eric said he doesn’t trust Patrick’s wife and things get heated. Eric then goes to his assistant and tells her to start sorting the mail, as he is looking for a bank statement. He then tells her to find out details on the Peterson guy, as she said Kate had an appointment with him and set it up herself and also an appointment with the IRS and FCC. He also tells her to reach out to headhunters, as they need a new compliance officer (Neil’s position).
Then we see Cornell bring the phone back to Danny and tell him to go back to NY and testify at his case. He said not until his daughter, but she refuses to help him anymore. At the office, Melanie confronts Eric about Patrick and he is hurting him. She said she is a fighter and if he hurts Patrick, then she will hurt him. His secretary didn’t find out any info on Peterson and why Kate would schedule a meeting with him. She brings up pictures of Peterson and we see the lady in the surveillance video contemplating coming into the building on the day Kate died. Turns out, that is Peterson’s wife!
Now Cornell goes to her ex’s place and her daughter answers! Things get heated and Cornell was worried about her being alone and maybe using again. Her daughter said she was clean for 18 months and is bitchy with Cornell. At the station, Cornell tells her colleague to search for the lady in the video and they need to find the adoptive mother of Kate’s son. Then her ex comes into the station and he said she needs therapy. We flash back to two years ago and Cornell talking with her partner about things. They go up to separate houses and her partner was shot and killed! The murder is still open and she can’t investigate because she was his partner and it is against protocol and she would get dinged if she tried. She said everyone is holding her back on Secrets and Lies Season 2.
Eric goes to the Peterson house to chat with them. She is the lady that Kate was talking to at the diner and they are the adoptive parents to Kate’s son. Kate wants to meet her son, but she said she doesn’t want that. They met the same day Kate died. Eric questions her on killing Kate and she said she didn’t do it. Her husband said she was angry and couldn’t get through to her. The meeting with Kate for her husband was to let her see her son. She said to check the footage and he can see when she left. Eric said the footage was erased and she said she might know who did it, as we flash back and see her leaving and Melanie coming out of security that night! So, Melanie did it???? Then Kate’s son comes up! He asks questions about Kate and how she was. It looks like he waited outside the office and saw Eric & Kate leaving the building.
Cornell’s partner found out who the diner date was with Kate and they head out to meet her. Eric then goes to see Amanda’s husband and talks about meeting Kate’s son and how he felt protective of him. It turns out that Amanda had fertility problems and wanted her own baby, as he suggested adopting. She was adamant on having her own child. He said they tried for months and Amanda was in so much pain that she couldn’t even get out of bed. She wouldn’t stop trying, so he walked away on Secrets and Lies 2016!
Cornell pays a visit to Eric at his office. She went to the Peterson’s house and found out that Eric was already there and advised them not to talk to her without an attorney. She said stop delaying her investigation. He said as long as he has questions about Kate until she died, then he will continue to look into it.
Eric’s secretary found the bank statement from a bank they normally don’t work with. They won’t reveal who opened it over the phone, so it looks like Eric will be going there since they opened a $12 million line of credit. Then his secretary said Cornell called her down for questioning the other day and she told her she heard Kate having a heated argument with Neil about having sex in his office, which she said was with Melanie! Oh, things are not looking good for her right now!
Cornell meets with her sergeant and he said they have been trying to solver her partner’s case, but nothing yet. They have been trying, but it was a drug house and it makes it difficult. Eric is now at the bank where the investment was opened. He wants a copy of the original agreement and a copy of all the activity on the account. He gets the opening paperwork and it was signed by Patrick!!!
