True Lies (#2.12)
5 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode deals with telling the truth even when it is inconvenient and hard to do. I must say I was a bit bored through most of the episodes, but the way the stories ended was pretty good in most cases. One would be the long story of Ruby finally finding out that his wife is dying. This is pretty sad considering how much he was hoping. his final scene with Carter was pretty moving.

Mark tells his daughter than him and her mother are getting divorced. The scene when she was leaving was actually pretty good considering that the kid is awful most of the times.

The story of the dying alcoholic and he daughter was a bit annoying at first, as those adult kids who can't get over the fact that their parents had an addiction are an annoying casualty on such TV shows. yet the death scene was greatly done.
