The wait is finally over. After a brief hiatus, Secrets and Lies is back with its latest instalment, season 2 episode 3 titled The Liar, in which Eric refuses to co-operate with the investigation and becomes destructive.
In the upcoming episode of the crime-thriller series, detective Cornell hounds Eric (again) in order to hear his version of the relationship he shared with his ex, Ms. Sawyer.
Fans of the show will remember that Eric was scared when he saw his ex at the precinct earlier. He also told John that his ex's statement could hurt him. And unfortunately for Eric, this fear turns into a reality in season 2 episode 3.
Eric is asked to elaborate on what happened between him and Ms. Sawyer but he doesn't give a clear answer. Instead, he tells Cornell, "I don't care. I didn't kill my wife so it doesn't matter. I told you about Kate's black eye and I told you about Liam's disappearance but nothing gets through. Clearly you don't believe a thing I've said and the only thing left for me to do is stop talking to you,"
Eric later eggs her on by challenging her to "get him." And while Cornell does exactly that, Eric uncovers more secrets about his wife.
He visits a seedy motel and learns that Kate once stayed there with her ex. Furthermore, he discovers that her shady assistant, Liam's identity was unknown to his late wife.
During the course of his own investigation, Eric learns about a woman connected to Liam. He thinks that she may have something to do with the murder but he struggles to find more leads.
Season 2 episode 3's synopsis (via TV Guide) reads:
Eric searches for Liam, Kate's missing assistant whose real identity may have been unknown to her, and wonders about an encounter she had at a seedy motel. Meanwhile, Cornell blindsides Eric with revelations from an ex-girlfriend; and a mysterious woman with possible ties to Liam may have been involved in Kate's death.
Secrets and Lies season 2 episode 3 airs at 9 pm EST on Sunday, 16 October, on ABC. You can live-stream the episode via ABC GO.
