The premiere of Secrets and Lies season two, which aired last night on ABC, revealed an exciting new plotline.


In the second season, Detective Andrea Cornell (Juliette Lewis), suspects that Michael Ealy‘s character Eric Warner murdered his wife Kate (Jordanna Brewster).

The first season concluded with the murder of a young boy, with the killer revealed to be Belle Shouse‘s character Abby.

The second season will follow Eric Warner’s story. His wife’s body was found on the pavement outside a building where she, Eric, Eric’s father John (Terry O’Quinn), and their coworkers were celebrating at a rooftop party. Among others present are Eric’s sister Amanda (Mekia Cox), his brother Patrick (Charlie Barnett) and Patrick’s wife Melane (AnnaLynne McCord).

The stone-faced Detective Cornell’s initial thought on approaching the scene is, “Who let the grieving husband contaminate my crime scene?”

Upon further investigation of the deceased Kate, the audience finds out that she had a secret P.O. Box in her name that a package was delivered to the night before her death, as well as a secret iPad that Eric cannot break the code to get into. We also learn that Kate gave birth to a baby that was not Eric’s. And something about Eric’s mother is alluded to multiple times.

Catch Secrets and Lies every Sunday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
