More and more clues and answers came out on Secrets and Lies Season 2 tonight, as things are pointing at Patrick and Melanie for the death of Kate. However, it is too early for it to actually be them on ABC’s Secrets and Lies 2016! However, both of them were arrested tonight, so did they actually do it? Check out all the details below in our Secrets and Lies Season 2 recap from tonight!
Last time on ABC’s Secrets and Lies 2016, we saw Melanie get questioned by Cornell about deleting the security footage, but nothing seemed to come from it. The lad determined there was a struggle on the roof and blood was found in the plant up there, but now to determine whose it was. Eric discovers the property that Eric owns is a brothel and it is run by Melanie! Danny is on a mission to find his daughter and she was working in this house, as he stalked a guy to find out details.
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!!!
We start at the station and Cornell’s partner is reading a report and tells Cornell it was a good night. He goes on to explain that shots were fired at this house and everyone was gone by the time the cops arrived. The house was a whore house and it happened to be owned by SEG and the utilities are in Patrick Warner’s name! They head out to the whore house to find some evidence and Cornell finds a camera, as things were being recorded in the house! They proceed to find several cameras and the main operating system, which has been wiped clean!
Now we see Neil and Eric talking and Eric said he wants the truth from Neil on what’s going on and why he brought a hooker to the party! We flash back and see that Melanie tried to kick Neil’s date out from the party. His date did leave and in the parking ramp she admits that Melanie is her boss! Neil said all he knew about what Melanie being her boss and not anything else. We then flash back to when Eric interrupted Neil and Patrick in the office and Eric fired Neil. That conversation before Eric came in was Neil confronting Patrick about everything and him telling Patrick to let Eric know.
Cornell finds another camera outside the property that emails images to VICE. It looks Eric talked to his father about things with Patrick and Melanie, as we see Eric tell Patrick he is fired and security walks him out. Eric goes to John and tells him it is done.
Now John, Neil and Eric meet with an attorney. Pretty much everything they have done, like Eric going to the bank to check on who opened the account and then starting the brawl at the whore house, was bad news and none of them are getting unscathed from this on Secrets and Lies Season 2.
At the station, Cornell and her partner get photos from the whore house and see Eric and Danny there, but they never had a warrant for the camera. The department agrees to man the house 24-7. Back at SEG, Eric is talking with the attorney and the attorney said there is only one drastic thing they can do. We then see Eric at the station and he turns over the files to Cornell with everything that Patrick had done! Eric leaves and Cornell’s partner asks who Eric threw under the bus and Cornell said his brother!
Eric is home and sleeping, but is woken up by some beeping. It is from the second iPad that Kate had in her desk. It is giving a notification that said “Movement Detected,” but he can’t unlock the iPad still. We now see Eric at the laundry mat and he meets Danny there, who is pissed that Eric did not tell him sooner about the house and his daughter possibly working there. Then a bullet on a necklace falls out of Danny’s stuff. We flash back and see that his daughter used to wear this necklace, which had “Dad” on it. A kid convinced Rachel that every cop has a bullet with their name on it, so Danny has this made to show her that her dad was safe (which is super cute)!
Eric then tells Danny about the money and being blackmailed and Kate was working on it. She put a tracking device on the money and now there is movement with the money and he can’t get in the iPad. Danny said he has a guy that can get it unlocked.
Patrick heads to the home to see his mother. He said he was just trying to impress his father and it was not supposed to end up this way. However, then Cornell and her partner come in and arrest Patrick!!!
Melanie is walking down the street and Danny is at the truck of his car. He grabs a gun and has duct tape in the trunk, so he looks to be about to abduct her. However, he sees all the hidden cop cars around and leaves, since they said they would be following everything regarding that whore house.
At the station, Cornell is questioning Patrick about murdering Kate. He said he did not do it and is not saying anything until his lawyer is there. Cornell pushes more, but nothing. She leaves the room and the lady from the department searching the whore house gives her a file and said she doesn’t have much time to press him, but on what?
Eric gets to his office and his secretary comes tell him his father and sister are in there waiting for him. They can’t believe that Eric turned Patrick into the cops. Eric said Amanda always told him to follow his lawyer’s advice, so he did. Amanda and John don’t think Patrick killed Kate, but Eric thinks otherwise and said he did what he had to do.
Back to the station and Cornell shows Patrick photos of Melanie, which starts with a mugshot of her. Apparently Melanie used to be a prostitute herself, which he does not believe. Then Cornell shows photos of Melanie with Patrick’s attorney and kissing him on the cheek and said they got a hotel room together and probably working off her payment to him. Patrick looks pissed and the attorney comes in and he tells Patrick that he is working with his wife to get him off on this. Well, Patrick cracks and just starts beating the crap out of the attorney, so that does not look good for his anger issues! The guards come in and take Patrick away.
Melanie is at a yoga class, as Cornell and her partner come in and arrest her! At the office, John talks with Eric and said he tried to go see Patrick, but he would not see him. Then Eric said he was being blackmailed and Patrick’s first loan payment was coming up when that blackmail come through and Kate paid it without him knowing. Eric shows John the blackmail letter and John starts shaking and falls into the chair, as his sickness is taking over him. They argue about Patrick and how Eric raised him.
Eric goes to see Patrick in jail. Patrick said he did not kill Kate. Patrick said he sat in that jail cell and the only approval he wanted was from Eric. Patrick said he hates finance, but for years he tried to be just like Eric instead of himself. Now he will be forced to figure out who he is and he looks forward to that, as the guard comes in to take him back to his cell.
At the station, the other agent questions Melanie. The agent then shows Melanie photos of the girls with the clients and asks about the ages of the girls. She then shows Melanie a necklace, which is actually a hidden camera. She said there was footage of what was going on in that house and that Patrick turned on Melanie, which she said would never happen. The agent shows footage of Patrick talking and then we flash back to Melanie and Patrick talking about the property and making it into the whore house.
Cornell comes into the room and Melanie said she did not kill Kate. Melanie said she wants a deal, as she knows who did kill Kate!
At Eric’s apartment, Danny comes in and he has the iPad. It looks like the secret code was “Eric” and he never tried his own name! We flash back to see the first time that Kate told Eric that she loved him. Meanwhile, the tracking signal goes off on the money again! Eric doesn’t believe it, as both Melanie and Patrick are in jail!
So, Danny and Eric head out to find the person that has the money. They locate the ping and wait for the car to drive by, which happens to be driven by John!!! Yes, Eric’s father was the one getting the blackmail money, so maybe that is why he was so shook up when seeing the letter?
