Secrets And Lies Recap

Secrets and Lies Recap: 'Everybody's Lying!'

The hunt for Zach Florrick Liam reached a surprising conclusion on Sunday’s Secrets and Lies, and by the end of the hour, two more names had been added to the ever-growing list of murder suspects.

But first, let’s talk about Eric’s loose-cannon pal Danny: Not only did we learn his name this week (“Yeah, that was worth 10 Gs…”), but in the episode’s final moments, we also learned that he’s a damn detective!

The discovery was made after Eric lured Neil to his apartment for a beatdown, courtesy of Danny, whose missing daughter was friends with the hooker (yikes!) that Neil brought to John’s retirement party. (Man, when Neil mentioned his poor luck with women, he wasn’t kidding.)

Here’s a quick rundown of everything else we learned this week:

* First thing’s first: Liam is not Kate’s son. The reason she hired him, despite knowing that his résumé was totally “bogus,” is because she wanted to give a fellow Boone native a second chance. “I’ve done things I’m not proud of,” Kate revealed during Liam’s interview. People got hurt. … I’m a different person now.”

* Liam also didn’t kill Kate. Per his alibi, he was headed to the liquor store to pick up booze for Patrick, who’d been cut off from drinking at his father’s party by — wait for it — Kate!

* Speaking of Patrick and Kate, he wasn’t exactly thrilled when she cock(tail)-blocked him. “You’re just a guest in this family,” Patrick told her. “If you don’t start minding your own business, you’re going to get hurt.” That said, he got really defensive when Cornell implied that she believed he killed her — to the point where I have to ask: Could Patrick have had feelings for Kate?

* Amanda and her husband — is this the first we’ve heard of him, by the way? — have quietly separated. So quietly, in fact, that Eric had no idea until he caught his brother-in-law out with another woman. “You all think you’re so close,” Greg said of the Warner family, “but none of you ever really talk to each other.”

    Last night’s episode put me to sleep so I turned to Madam Secretary and that too bored me. Is there no good Sunday night TV?
    S&L was super confusing. Too much flash back.

    We saw her husband once, after the funeral at her dad’s house, they fought and then he left for work or something b

    What happened with Patrick and his gf (wife? fiancé? I can’t remember) that had him so freaked out? Or was it something else that freaked him out the next day? Why/where was he sitting in his car when that guy asked for his parking spot? Super sketch. Patrick & Neil both looked really suspicious this ep, which means they’re both probably innocent.

  4. Carol says:

    The cast is pretty weak as were the first 3 episodes. The fourth was better but it is not up to last year’s cast or storyline,

    Just going to call it now, but I think the family’s assistant is the killer, she knows too much, is way to close to the family, and isn’t a suspect yet and isn’t expected to be! It’s the perfect cover up since she will have known how the family is doing, who they expect.

    So poor compared to Season 1. The acting is mediocre and the presentation of the storyline chopped up and confusing. Are the producers, directors and wtiters completely different from season 1 and who did the casting?
