The ‘Secrets and Lies’ finale was pretty shocking — but the four-minute after show, ‘Cornell Confidential,’ totally changed the game. The clip skips 14 months later and you’ll never believe what’s next. Watch it below!
Let’s just really hope that Secrets and Lies gets a season two! After the crazy season finale on May 4, we headed to ABC.com for “ornell: Confidential to get an extra clip. Just 14 months later, Dave and Natalie (Indiana Evans) celebrate her 18th birthday, but get a srirpsie visit by the amazing, Cornell (Juliette Lewis). However, it seems like they’re discussing Ben (Ryan Phillippe) in past tense. Spoilers ahead!
‘Secrets & Lies’: Who Killed Tom? Real Murdered Will Come Out
If you missed the finale of Secrets and Lies, you missed Ben and the family finding out that it was Abby, his 12-year-old daughter who killed Tom. However, she told the family it was an accident — and with that, Ben took the fall for his daughter and was locked up in jail.
However, Cornell knew the truth — and so did Natalie. In Cornell: Confidential, the extra clip, we saw something we did not see coming. Natalie is celebrating her 18th birthday with Dave, and she tells him, “I can’t believe he’s not here.”
But that’s not all — Cornell enters the diner, and is immediately attacked by Dave who says “If you weren’t so hellbent on putting Ben away, he still might be here. You know that right?” With that, Cornell sits down and discusses it all with Natalie, who actually agrees she will testify and turn in Abby. The clip ends with Cornell approaching Christy and Abby on the street.
However, the question remains: is Ben dead? The way they’re speaking about him (“he’s gone now”), it sure sounds like it. It’s definitely would be a crazy twist.
