"Episode 5" is the fifth episode of the first season of the Australian version of "Secrets & Lies", and the fifth episode of the series overall.


When Christy uses Tash and Eva to hold their relationship hostage, Ben turns to Jess for comfort. But the relationship turns sour when Ben finds evidence implicating her in Thom's death.


With Ben still struggling to clear to his name, he discovers a strange man squatting in a vacant house close to where he found Thom. He also discovers a blood-stained blue jacket in the house's laundry. The police arrive and take the man away. But when Ben goes to show Cornielle the jacket, it is gone.

Back at home, Ben is shocked when Christy says she is leaving him. She reveals she saw him throw something in the river and gives him one last chance to tell her the truth, but Ben is torn. He cannot bring himself to reveal the truth to his wife. And with that, Christy walks out the door, taking the girls with her.

In the shadows of his family leaving, a distraught Ben is tempted by the comfort Jess offers. They fall into bed together, but inside Jess' bedroom, he finds a new clue that leaves him shocked to the core.
