One of Us Is Lying season 2, episode 8 recap – ending explained
The finale begins with a rehab flashback, where Jake and Fiona talk amidst art therapy. Apparently, Gisele started a rumor that she and Jake were sleeping together, but he denies it. During their discussion, it was revealed that Fiona had stabbed her teacher because he was assaulting her. Fiona tells Jake that she knows he is a sociopath. As Jake is about to tell Fiona the real reason he went to rehab, we came back to the car, where an unsuspecting man Nat sits next to our new Simon Says.
After reading BronwynIn SS’s text about SS’s true identity, Nate confronts Fiona, who confirms she’s been playing with the band all along and gives him an ultimatum. She wants revenge on whoever pulled the trigger on Jake, and the Murder Club has until midnight to decide whether or not he abandons them. Fiona stops her car in the middle of nowhere and unceremoniously kicks Nate out.
Back to Janae, the Murder Club tries to come up with a plan to stop Fiona. They think the villain might not be working alone, but don’t know who could help her. The teens decide to try to find evidence linking Fiona to Giselle’s murder.
Janae and To add break into Fiona’s house and find proof that she was the one who photographed Jake’s photos in Greece. Brownyn, Nate and Maeva find Fiona’s iPad in the school drama club but fail to enter it before the villain notices someone trying to crack her password and erase all data. To make matters worse, the police find Jake’s body.
In the present, Vanessa tells the group that she overheard Jake revealing Fiona’s secret to Simon on the tapes, betraying her. A flashback shows a crying Fiona in her car after fleeing the cafeteria the day Simon revealed she stabbed her teacher at her old school. Jake follows her and promises revenge on her behalf. The group realize that there is no evidence that Fiona murdered Giselle, but they have enough to frame her for Jake’s death.
To prove that Fiona had a motive to kill Jake, Maeve and Janae plan to go to the yacht, hack into the restaurant’s WiFi, and download Simon’s hard drive to Fiona’s dad’s laptop, making it seem like that she used it to work with Jake. . Cooper and Nate are tasked with going to Jake’s house and stealing hair from his room, so the group can plant their DNA on the bear costume Fiona wore for Halloween. To prevent their enemy from learning their plan, Bronwyn and Addy decide to follow Fiona in Bronwyn’s car.
At the last minute, Maeve suggests switching the roles of Addy and Janae because the former can’t drive. They also plan to plant the murder weapon in Fiona’s car, but Maeve thinks their plan won’t work without the bad guy’s fingerprints on the gun and she also reminds the group of the video Fiona has. Bronwyn and the others decide that this frame job is the best chance they have of stopping Fiona, so they dismiss Maeve’s concerns, once again, not giving her a vote on the matter.
As they are about to plant the gun in Fiona’s car, Bronwyn and Janae realize that the murder weapon is missing. At the same time, Maeve and Addy lock themselves in the yacht as it begins to move. Fiona confronts the two girls and Maeve pulls out the gun to reveal she is working with Simon Says. Apparently Fiona promised Maeve to permanently delete the Murder Club video next to Jake’s body if she hands Addy over, and Maeve agreed to save her sister from jail.
Fiona gives Addy a speech about how Jake was her soulmate before she pulls the trigger. The gun is unloaded and it turns out that Maeve was also playing Fiona. She was just trying to get the bad guy’s fingerprints on the gun. Fiona sets the boat on fire, but Nate and Cooper arrive just in time to save Maeve and Addy. Cooper is seriously injured in the process. Back on land, Bronwyn confronts Fiona, who stabs her in the shoulder just before the police show up to arrest her.
After their ordeal, Cooper and Bronwyn are hospitalized. Maeve tries to apologize to her sister, but Bronwyn says she can’t forgive the betrayal that nearly got everyone killed. None of the other Murder Club members have anything to say to Maeve either, even Janae unsure if they will ever be able to forgive her.
Meanwhile, Cooper’s father visits him in his hospital room and finally meets Kris, shaking his hand. Watching Coop introduce Kris as her boyfriend is probably the healthiest part of a very stressful episode.
Cole visits Fiona in prison and asks her if she knew why Jake killed Simon. Fiona thinks it may have something to do with why Jake was sent to rehab in the first place. Cole seems surprised that Fiona knows this. Later, while in his cell, the now incarcerated Simon Says was given his prison lunch, which turns out to be poisonous. Who poisoned Fiona? Could this have something to do with why Jake went to rehab?
In the penultimate scene, the members of our Murder Club happily celebrate the end of the ordeal. Nate gives Bronwyn a necklace with the word “Stay” engraved on it and promises to never leave her. All Is Not As It Seems – The final scene shows the school on graduation day turned into a violent crime scene. There’s blood everywhere, but we don’t know who it belongs to. An officer picks up Bronwyn’s “Stay” necklace from the floor. The Murder Club’s troubles are far from over.
