"Episode 4" is the fourth episode of the first season of the Australian version of "Secrets & Lies", and the fourth episode of the series overall.


Now in possession of the murder weapon, Ben tries to return to a normal life until he can safely get rid of it. By chance, he stumbles onto evidence of a sexual predator living in his street, and, finally convinced that he knows who killed Thom, he takes the opportunity - but in his haste, his wife catches him destroying the evidence.


With Detective Cornielle moving ever-closer to charging Ben for murder, Ben becomes even more desperate to clear his name. The murder weapon is released to the press and it makes headlines everywhere. An emotionally distraught Jess goes to Ben for support. There is clearly a spark between them and with both emotionally vulnerable, they end up kissing...

Meanwhile, Ben's neighbour Vanessa Turner is hiding a dark secret that could turn Thom's murder case on its head. And Ben is about to uncover it. While helping fix a leak, Ben finds suspicious items hidden in the Turner's roof. What has Ben discovered? And why are the Turners so intent on covering it up?

But Ben is doing some covering up of his own. After discovering the murder weapon back in his van with noexplanation as to how it got there, Ben decides he has to get rid of it once and for all. He waits until nightfall andthrows it into the river. But someone has seen him do it. Could this spell the end for Ben?
