Sean’s secret

Now Sean’s secret is juicy! Not as much as Anne’s, but we’ll get to hers next! First, let’s discuss what Sean was hiding from his wife Lisa in the first place throughout their entire marriage.

No secret affair, no secret children he has to support. His big secret? He murdered someone. But it’s not as bad as it sounds! Okay, murder is always bad, yes. Maybe! In this case, it was self-defense …sorta!

One of the reasons Sean left Maddie, his high school girlfriend, is because of her drug usage. She meets up with a drug dealer who tries to rape her. Luckily, Sean shows up in time to put a stop to it. Both are about to walk away, but the drug dealer tells Sean that Maddie will be back tomorrow night anyway (clearly already a drug addict at this point).

This comment triggers Sean and he goes into a fit of rage, grabs a baseball bat and kills the man. He yells at Maddie (Allie MacDonald) to leave and she runs away scared by what she sees. In comes Todd, who’s in shock but doesn’t hesitate to help his best friend dispose of the body.

Sean thought about turning himself in, but then he meets Lisa and decides to start a new life with her (leaving out the fact that he killed someone).

It’s tragic that Maddie shows up to blackmail him about this when it is her fault this went down in the first place. But it at least pushed him to tell Lisa the truth. Okay, Anne may have done most of the pushing.
