Storyline

"Secrets of Eden" centers on Stephen Drew, an adored small-town minister in Haverhill, Vermont, and the brutal and sadistic murder-suicide of Alice and George Hayward, the town's most beloved parishioners. While the community never imagined such a destiny for the Haywards, dark secrets begin to surface, causing many to realize they may not have been the perfect family everyone thought they were. When evidence of an affair between Alice and Reverend Drew surfaces, Detective Catherine Benicasa suspects that the crime may actually be more complicated than it appeared and sets her eyes on the likable minister as the prime suspect. Now Katie, the Haywards' orphaned 15-year-old daughter, may be the only key to uncover the disturbing secrets of what happened behind closed doors on that fateful night and the suffering they endured as a "not so perfect" family.

Goofs

The detective complains to the DA that "You're letting him go", implying charges had been dismissed. The DA says that Drew made bond. People out on bond still face charges. After Drew's subsequent voiceover, it is clear the charges were dismissed, making what the DA said about bond an error. See more »

Quotes

Kate Hayward: [Last lines] If I live to be old, I know I'll have a ton of regrets. But putting a bullet in my dad's head won't ever be one of them.

Anna Gunn makes it all worth it
26 August 2017 | by DavidSKSSee all my reviews

I am convinced Anna Gunn is the best thing to ever come out of New Mexico. She is one of the most talented actresses to ever grace a television screen. Her range is phenomenal. She shows it in Secrets of Eden as Detective Catherine Benincasa.

Ms. Gunn is an enchantress who will enrapture you no matter if you're watching Breaking Bad or this TV movie. If you love Anna, you'd better watch Secrets of Eden.
