The fifth episode delves into the aftermath of Garth’s arrest and the tangled web of secrets. Liv’s mother, Caryl, pays a visit, her concern for her daughter palpable. Despite Liv’s reassurances, Caryl senses all is not well. Meanwhile, in custody, Garth faces intense scrutiny. Detectives uncover inconsistencies in his account of the night Cara died. Their investigation closes in on the truth.

Back at home, Will is taken aback by Caryl’s unexpected presence. His worry centers on Liv potentially revealing his affair. Tensions simmer as Liv denies confiding in her mother. Liv faces another round of questioning from Investigator Rawlings, attempting to evade the probing. She hints at Garth’s possessiveness towards Cara. The investigator strategically shares this information with Garth, hoping to sow discord.

Later, over dinner, Will broaches the subject of starting a family. After some persuasion, Liv cautiously agrees. Meanwhile, Caryl digs into her suspicions about Will, discovering incriminating polaroids. Liv is initially oblivious to their significance. In a heart-wrenching confession, Liv admits to her mother that she accidentally killed Cara, believing she had no other choice.

Caryl leaves, emotions running high. In the episode’s final moments, Liv confronts Will about the Polaroids, unraveling a shocking revelation. Will confesses to an affair with Marissa, Cara’s best friend, before his involvement with Cara. The tense atmosphere shatters when Garth enters, wielding a gun. In a desperate act of self-defense, Liv strikes Garth, bringing the episode to a dramatic close.

The penultimate episode thrusts us into the heart of familial tension and long-buried secrets. Liv’s mother, Caryl, serves as a pivotal figure, casting a discerning eye on the fractured relationship between Liv and Will. The revelation of Will’s prior affair with Marissa adds a new layer of complexity to the already tangled web of deceit. However, the episode’s narrative structure continues to falter, lacking the cohesion needed for a truly compelling storyline. It falls short of generating genuine intrigue or suspense, leaving us craving more depth and complexity.

Character development remains a weak point. Will’s infidelity and Liv’s internal turmoil are explored, but there’s room for a deeper exploration of their motives and emotions. Jenna Coleman’s portrayal of Liv continues to be a standout, carrying the emotional weight of the episode.
