After 2 seasons, you need to understand what you are getting into when you watch "Secrets and Lies". The plot changes dramatically almost every episode. They introduce new twists and turns. Unfortunately, it is always a new character or situation that you learn about in episode 9 (out of 10) who is the true killer. Is a rip off. Sad, because the lead detective is quite good, and the actors are quite good. But look for season 3 to be the same thing: New character in the last chapter who did it.

Ey Yi Yi. Please try to find the original Australian version of this and re-think what constitutes GOOD. This US version is SO watered-down. (not unlike The Slap, The Bridge, The Returned... where our re-do just does NOT cut it, after seeing the originals)
