Tell Me Lies Season 1 Episode 5 Summary

It’s December 2007 and Lucy is with Max, but she quickly leaves him to spend more time with Stephen. And with the Christmas holidays approaching, Lucy and Stephen will have to adjust to not seeing each other for a while. When Stephen returns home, he visits his mother who is in bed with a migraine. But after hearing him come in, she gets Stephen to come and say hello. When Lucy returns home, she finds out that she’s gotten a spot on the writing program. But the mood soon turns sour when James arrives with flowers.

While driving with his mother, Stephen gets into a heated debate about whether or not a flower shop clerk is pretty. Later, while the family is out for dinner, Stephen’s father also eats at the restaurant. While the children want to go home, their mother does not want to go. Shortly after, Stephen’s father tells her she needs to stop doing this, and he quickly leaves with his pregnant partner. And it soon becomes clear that his mother deliberately arranged the dinner so that they would meet Stephen’s father. Stephen’s mother tries to deflect the guilt by saying that it was Stephen who decided to go to the restaurant.

The end

Lucy calls Stephen and they both become friends because of their crappy families. Due to the latest developments in his family, Stephen cancels his plan to meet Lucy. Moments later, Lucy calls Booty Max. When Lucy leaves her family to go to “Lydia’s” even though Max is the most likely place, it disappoints her mother, CJ. When Lucy and Ma hang out, Diana comes to Stephen’s house unannounced. While in bed with Max, Lucy talks about her problems with her mother. She reveals that her mother fucked James when her father was dying. However, her mother has no idea that Lucy knows, and this makes clear why Lucy feels so much resentment towards her mother. After listening to her story, Max asks Lucy if she might be depressed. However, Lucy doesn’t want to put a label on it.

After an upset Lydia, Lucy calls, Lucy beats Rob for her. Towards the end of the show, Lucy’s mother tells her that she’s never surprised when people think “if she’s sad enough” as she knows she is. Lucy attends a memorial service for Macy and Stephen visits his father. Stephen tells his father he needs a favor. And that favor is to sign a letter for his sister to go to college.

A bit of a low-key ending, but that pretty much sums up the show. Overall a very good episode!
