Last week on ABC’s Secrets and Lies 2016, we had a few big things happen. Eric met with his attorney and knew the company and family would be going under for everything that Patrick did, so Eric turned over the information to Cornell and thinks that Patrick did it! Patrick was fired from SEG and then got arrested, as he found out more details on Melanie and she used to be a prostitute and was having relations with his attorney! Later on, Melanie was also arrested. Then Danny got the iPad unlocked for Eric and they were getting pings on the ransom money, so they went to investigate and they saw Eric’s father, John, leaving the parking lot!

We start back with seeing John drive past Eric and Danny in the parking lot. Eric said his father has no reason to blackmail, but then realizes that he told his father about the extortion this morning! Danny said than John is involved somehow. Eric then checks the iPad and the money is still in the trucking lot, so he gets out to get it but Danny stops him and said to wait until the morning! They show Eric grabbing some kind of box, but it is hard to make out what he is doing.
They are at the diner now and Danny said he will go there in the morning and get some details. Eric said he can’t sit around and wait until morning. Danny said he needs to or he’ll end up in a cell next to Patrick!
At the station, the sergeant told them that Eric was being blackmailed for $100,000. Cornell said maybe Eric didn’t know Kate paid the blackmailer and she had it tracked. The letter said they’ll expose Eric’s juvenile record and Cornell said John is the only one to have those, so her boss said to go shake his tree. The sergeant adds, maybe the DNA results will help! Yes, they ran DNA on the envelope and they licked it to close it, so Cornell takes it to the lab and wants him to run the DNA and compare it to the DNA on the clothes they have received from the witnesses.
The next morning comes and Danny is at the trucking company asking for a job. The owner said they are not hiring, but then gets a phone call and steps away. This gives Danny the chance to snoop around and he sees a bulletin board of photos and takes one! Outside, Danny asks about family in Georgia. Turns out, Danny thinks the blackmail letter came from this trucking company owner, as he said money is tight and laying off people. He said his real last name is Warner and shows Eric a photo of John and this guy together and fishing!
Cornell talks to that lady detective and asks where Eric is. She is not sure, but said Patrick was just released on bail. This detective found no link to the Warners owning any of the brothels, but the warrant she got lets her keep an eye on things. Another male detective asks Cornell for an update, but she said she’ll update when she knows more. He said she is just the middle person and will go to his boss for an update.
Cornell now runs into John and Amanda and asks about the juvenile record. John said he can’t find it and Amanda wants to know what’s so important about it. Cornell then mentions Kate using a private DNA lab and they don’t know why she would.
Danny and Eric talk about this RB Warner. Turns out, the company was started with a Corrine Warner and she is the same age as John, so maybe she knows something and Eric is going to investigate. At the lab, the lab guy said he found a partial match to all the Warners and the DNA is from a guy. Cornell asks about the clothes from the witnesses and he said that is all of it, but Cornell said that is not the right jacket! So, someone turned over a different jacket than they were wearing the night Kate died.
Eric goes to Corrine’s house asking for John and she said he’s on his way back with their son. She invites Eric in and we see pills on the table and she has a headwrap on, so it looks like she might be battling cancer, hence the phone calls to John’s phone! Then Eric notices the wall of photos, as it is filled with photos of John and RB growing up. Corrine talks about John being her husband and she doesn’t normally meet his coworkers. So, John has this whole other life on Secrets and Lies Season 2?
Back at the station, Cornell asks the lady detective if John has made any phone calls. Cornell said John had to warn the extortionist about the letter, which would be his other son that no one knows about! The detective said John has made a call to Augusta a couple times and he is there now, but it makes since since he owns a home there since 1971!
Now to Eric and Corrine and she appreciates the company, even though Eric wants to leave. Then John and RB walk in! Eric gives the blackmail letter to RB and said he thinks this is his. John said Corrine should be resting and him and Eric have some business to discuss and tells RB to stay. Outside, John is trying to calm things down, but Eric is not having it. RB comes out and it turns out he is the oldest son and said he deserves this company and he should be taking over. Eric said RB killed Kate, but he said he did not do it. John says RB has been a failure and tried to help him. Eric said John used his mother’s money to start his business, but then the cops show up! RB is arrested for extortion and John is arrested for bigamy and perjury! Corrine comes out to find out what is going on and asks who Eric is and he said John’s son!
Cornell arrives on the scene and tells Corrine what the charges are. She said she has to take them to Charlotte. Cornell wants Eric to come to the station to give his statement. Eric calls Amanda and tells her to meet him, as she is taking pills and asking if everything is ok.
At the station, the sergeant questions RB and Cornell will question John. The sergeant tells RB that he licked the envelope and that is why he is there. He tells him Kate had the tracker and Kate discovered RB. RB said that is not what happened. He said it would not have happened had John known how to change a flat tire. RB was changing the tire and discovered Eric’s juvenile record in the trunk! This is when RB found out he had a brother and he killed some kid. So, he went to see who Eric was. This is when RB discovered Eric drove a $100,000 car and John;s other family got everything they wanted and RB had nothing. RB said he never touched the money and it is all there, but he wanted to hurt John when he knew it would hurt him. RB said he was at the hospital with his mother getting chemo when Kate was killed.
Now we see Corrine confront Eric about why he is doing this and then Amanda shows up. She has no clue what’s going on, so Eric said there is no easy way to say this. So, he said Amanda is his sister and Corrine is John’s other wife! Amanda is shocked!
Cornell talks with the sergeant and he said RB’s alibi lines out and he was with his mother when Kate was killed. So, now it is time for Cornell to question John! He said he never meant to hurt anyone and he loves both his families so much. John said he did not kill Kate and found out about the extortion letter yesterday when Eric showed him it, but knew it was RB. John said Kate did not know about his two families and had no reason to kill her.
The other detective shows up and asks the sergeant what is going on. He said they have John on two felony charges, but not murder. The other detective said they need to cut him loose for now, as he helps as a witness right now. Eric is talking to Ralston about maybe things would be different if he had paid the blackmailer earlier. Ralston said he needs Kate’s iPad to put charges against RB.
Now we see Corrine talking with Amanda and Eric and wonders what kind of man could lie to his family. Corrine determines that when John was with them, they were all alone since their mother had been in a coma for years. Patrick comes in all angry and said this is all Eric’s fault and first him then Melanie and now their dad. Cornell and John come out and Patrick said John did not do this and Eric did, as he pushed their mother down the steps 20 years ago! We flash back and see some arguing going on upstairs in their house and Patrick is downstairs and sees his mother fall over the ledge and onto the steps! Eric is at the ledge. Patrick said Eric told them to lie for him, so he did it once and he could do it again!
Cornell asks if that is true and Eric said yes. Cornell said you know this would be charges for attempted murder and he said it was self-defense. Amanda said he did nothing wrong, but Patrick said he did it and he saw it happen. Amanda said he saw nothing at the bottom of the steps. John said this is not him. Eric said he had no other choice since John left them alone with a drunk and abusive woman. This is when Patrick learns that John has another family and John tells him not now. Patrick said there was no abuse. Cornell said since none of their stories line up, it leaves her no other choice but to open another investigation. Amanda asks to speak with Cornell for a minute.
Amanda tells Cornell that Patrick is angry and it is part of his story. Amanda said that Eric was helping her. Cornell said they have all lied to her, so she believes none of them now. Cornell tells Corrine that RB will be charged with extortion. We then see John hug Corrine and the kids are disgusted. Patrick said he is done with this family and Eric said doubtful, as Patrick always needs something.
Corrine talks to Eric and apologizes for everything. She said she didn’t know anything. Eric wants to know how she forgave him so easily. Corrine wants Eric to forgive RB and say that he gave RB the money. Eric said the cops have the proof that RB did it and he made Kate’s life hell. Corrine said she is dying and to not lock up her son and do this for her.
At the lab, the tech said it was the wrong jacket! The jacket they have only has skin fibers from the worker in China that made it and tried it on! So, this jacket is brand new and never worn. Cornell said the killer dumped their clothes the night of the party and bought new ones and turned them in. She said she knows who the killer is now, but needs to find out why! Oh lord, another hour to get through though!
