Secrets and Lies Season 1 Finale Recap: The Lie

The season finale of “Secrets and Lies” was a real shocker! Who would’ve thought that that person is Tom’s killer? After all this time…? Read below for the full recap.

Okay, first off, Christy and Ben surprisingly became civil to one another. They even had the girls spend New Year’s with their father. When she dropped them off, Ben handed her divorce papers and they seemed to be okay with how their marriage unfolded.


However, the whole civil, normal and happy family reunion was short-lived. It was because Ben found out the truth behind Tom’s murder when he saw Abby’s bloody sneakers. We found out what really happened the night of Tom’s death.

That night, Ben and Christy had a huge fight about Jess and how Scott was gone. Abby went to convince Tom to run away because doing that will bring back his dad and also, her dad wouldn’t be with Jess. It’s a win-win situation. She took her dad’s flashlight with her and Jess’ rain coat and they headed to the woods. However, Tom lost his toy in the woods and told Abby that he wants to go home. He ran away but Abby grabbed him and hit him with the flashlight.

Back in the present day, shaky with the revelation, Ben burned Abby’s shoes and sent the kids to Christy’s. Natalie didn’t want to go and wanted to go to the police. Ben was able to convince her to stay with her uncle Michael instead.

Ben went to Cornell and admitted that he was the one who killed Tom. However, Cornell already figured out who killed Tom. She knows it was Abby and she also believes that she didn’t hit Tom once but hit him several times in the head. Cornell explained to him she put her daughter away in jail and that Abby would kill again. Still, Ben doesn’t want to so he is the one who went to jail.

The episode ended with Abby telling her mom, “none of this would have happened if I got him to the river.”
