"Episode 2" is the second episode of the first season of the Australian version of "Secrets & Lies", and the second episode of the series overall.


Ben struggles to prove his innocence when the police identify the murder weapon as a flashlight he owned. As he tries to help Jess Murnane deal with her son's death, he comes to the horrifying realisation that his own daughter might have been involved.


Jess becomes an ally of Ben's when she presents him with compelling evidence that suggests her ex-husband Paul could be the killer. But with the police unwilling to listen, Ben decides to take matters into his own hands. As Ben hunts for Paul, there's mounting pressure as the case against him builds.

When Detective Cornielle visits the house with images of black metal torches, Ben realizes the police have identified the murder weapon. Christy recognizes one of the torches as the type Ben owns. And when Ben can't find the torch in his toolbox, it is clear that Cornielle is even closer to charging him with murder.

Ben tracks down an address Paul may be using, but when he investigates he is met with brutal resistance from two of Paul's army mates. They knew he was coming, and they're not giving anything away. Could Paul still be around? And could he be the killer?

Meanwhile, Ben's 16-year-old daughter, Tasha, is acting suspiciously. Secretive phone calls to a mysterious stranger have Ben worried that she may have got herself into some serious trouble. At Thom's funeral, Ben catches Tasha sneaking off after another suspicious phone call. Ben decides to follow — but nothing can prepare him for the relationship he uncovers when he finds Tasha
