Agatha and Meghan’s worlds continue to spiral downward. As we reach the midway point for The Secrets She Keeps Season 2, Agatha learns the truth about who Lorelei is and her role in her life. Meanwhile, Jack is forced to discover the truth about Ben after overhears a confrontation between Meghan and Simon. The whole thing is messy, and for a good reason. That’s what we’re going to uncover in this article. Please be warned that this article does contain significant spoilers for S02E03. As with the previous post, this one is just as jumbled due to the interweaving storylines.

For the first highlights article and the second.

1. Grace Ends Up In The Hospital, And She Tells Simon About Ben

Continuing from episode two, Grace is conscious of her fall down the stairs and has to get nine stitches on her head. She tells Meghan that Ben and Simon should have a father-son bond. Later at home, she tells Simon about the DNA test she performed on Ben and tells him he is the boy’s father, not Jack. She explains that Meghan lied about who Ben’s father was. Simon asks how it’s possible when he submits the samples himself and gets the results.

Simon wants to call Meghan, but Grace stops him as her sister is probably telling Jack simultaneously. However, this isn’t what is happening.

The morning after Jack learns about Ben, Simon tells Grace that he knew Ben was his, but Meghan lies to him.

2. Agatha And Her Baby Are In Trouble!

After providing the prison governor with semen samples of two potential fathers of her baby, Agatha comes under threat when one of the guards, Rocco, denies he’s the baby daddy. As a result, he gets suspected of his job and indirectly threatens the mother and child. He must also explain why he can’t go to work with his wife.

3. Lorelei The Creeper

As time goes on, Lorelei becomes creepier and creepier. If you thought her stunt in putting a tracker on Meghan’s car was terrible, her desire to get closer to Agatha is taking an even bigger turn. She stands in front of the mirror and practices introducing herself to Agatha in the mirror. She brushes off her mother’s concern for her, saying she’s not tired, despite all the work she has put into the podcast.

Belinda, Lorelei’s mother, says they could go to the holiday house for a few days, but Lorelei rebuffs, speaking she has permission to see Agatha in prison. Her mother nods.

4. Simon Confronts Meghan About Ben, Jack Overhears Them, And Then Learns The Truth About Ben

Simon texts Meghan, and she runs outside in the middle of the night. Despite the hour, Simon cannot let go of the fact that Meghan lied to him for two years about Ben being his child. Meghan admits she didn’t know he was the father until Grace told her about the DNA result. She claims she wasn’t sure and didn’t want to know because, as far as she was concerned, Jack was Ben’s dad.

Jack walks out and asks what’s going on. First, he asks if Grace is okay. Simon and Meghan aren’t sure what to say, so Simon leaves, swearing under his breath.

Ushering Jack inside, Meghan is forced to tell him about Simon being Ben’s father and how his conception happened. Jack explodes in a rage and leaves. The next day, Simon tries to ring Jack, but he’s not answering. A colleague tells him to try another colleague, who then passes his phone to Jack, who is far from happy. This prompts him to fly into a rage at the sports star he’s been in investigating, dismantling his story and leading other journalists to report on the allegations he’s exposed.

Jack says he’s having family issues, leading his boss to tell him to get a handle on the situation before he returns. Simon follows him, only for Jack to punch him.
