Stitchers was not holding back on us this week. Coining this episode the hour of bombshells doesn’t begin to describe how much information we found out about some of our favorite Stitchers team members. But the biggest bombshells are the questions we have after watching the shocking episode.

This week’s mystery death comes in the form of a lawyer found dead in her office. Kirsten’s first stitch has her watching Anna trying to figure out a top secret case with other lawyers. Maggie’s old friend and senior partner of the firm, Sam, was running the case and even though he favored Anna they had an issue. Anna found a memo that could sink the company that they were defending. The company supposedly sold batteries that turned out to be deadly, which they found out later and didn’t fix. She wanted the company to settle during the case which didn’t sit well with Bonnie, who asked for her to be dismissed from the case. Sam couldn’t let that happen because Anna was his best associate, but not for long.

Kirsten is then stitched in during Anna’s time of death and she sees that Anna died from being poisoned. She drank from her iced tea and died instantly. Fisher says that there was no tea at the crime scene, which means someone from the office must have poisoned her and then removed the tea. The team tries to question the fellow associates that worked with Anna but they don’t tell them anything new. They signed a confidentially agreement which prevents them from actually saying anything, it’s frustrating to say the least.

Stitching in again, Kirsten sees that Sam found an email where Anna emailed the LA Times the memo. It looks like she sold out the law firm and things don’t look good for her. But aside from that, everyone at the firm had something against Anna. Bonnie didn’t like her, Sam was worried what this would mean for his company and the associates didn’t like how Anna was approaching the case.

Turns out that one of the associates pinned the memo on Anna but no one is revealing anything. Instead, one of the associates turns the tables on Cameron, telling Kirsten the truth about his dad. Cameron’s dad was behind a huge Ponzi scheme which landed him in prison. Kirsten tells Cameron that he isn’t his father but this secret clearly weighs on him.

Randall may have upset our favorite guy but he got what was coming to him. He accidentally drops a hint that he was the killer, all he wanted was to make Anna sick but instead it got her killed. He tried to make it seem like another associate did it but clearly he didn’t plan it out enough.

Camille and Linus are not in a good place this week since Linus is not happy that he was lied to. The only part of this plot that I liked was the cute Linus/Kirsten moment. I didn’t know that I liked the idea of these two bonding but now I want to see this every week. Camille on the other hand is still keeping up the facade with Liam which Kirsten finds out about and she isn’t happy. But then again, who would be happy to see their best friend making out with their ex in their home? Not good.

Liam is still giving me a shady vibe; he seemed all too happy to be caught by Kirsten. This really makes me believe that at least Camille had a concrete reason to be doing this. Liam is hiding something big and there isn’t much of a choice for her. But the way she is isolated from the team now is kind of upsetting. Camille is told by Maggie that she can’t say anything so instead she feels guilty for not doing what Kirsten assumes she is doing. Luckily Kirsten finds out the truth from the duo in the end and decides that she will be the one to get information from Liam. He might be working with her father and Kirsten isn’t going to let that slip away.

Cameron is trying to keep his relationship in its blissful bubble since his secret work life is starting to catch up with him. Nina and Cameron’s relationship looked like it was only growing. But the worst part comes when his dad’s identity is dropped on Kirsten and a room full of strangers. Kirsten and him bond on their similar dad issues but as always, Cameron has to pull away because he has a girlfriend. It looks like it is getting harder and harder for him tot juggle these two paths that life has thrown his way.

The bombshells that I really want to bring up though is when young Cameron tells Kirsten that she has a sister named Ivy Brown and when Linus met his dad at the lawyers office. His dad is shocked to see him and things get even more confusing when his lawyer mentions a medical power of attorney. Who do you think might be in trouble in Linus’ family? Do you believe the big sister bombshell reveal?

    This was an amazing episode! I loved all the reveals! And the Camsten moments were as good as always, I still love them SO much!
    I never expected that Cameron’s dad was in jail. I would love to learn more about Cameron’s parents. Sounds like an interesting backstory! Cameron is such a cutie for thinking he had to explain it all to Kirsten. Of course he doesn’t have too, everyone can see Cam’s a really, really, really good guy! <3 Adorable.
    Kirsten has a half-sister: Ivy Brown. I hope Ivy doesn't have contact with Stinger anymore and if/when Kirsten meets her, she's able to help her find him. I'd love to see what Kirsten could have in common with her half-sister. I really don't want Ivy to be shady.
    Until I read it in your review, I haven't even thought about if the sister reveal is even true. I really hope it is, cause Kirsten really doesn't need even more drama in her life.
    Liam was such an a**hole when Kirsten caught him and Camille. Ugh. I secretly hope Kirsten doesn't have to "take Camille's place". It could also look suspicious to Liam, cause Kirsten clearly didn't like the situation at all. I wanna know who Liam is working for. Cause I don't think Liam has learned anything usefull from being with Camille. Camille's been carefull about everything she told Liam, which is a really good thing. I hope Liam will back off as soon as possible!!!
    For next week, I also wanna see what Linus' dad was up to. Maybe Linus' dad is sick? That would be so sad!
    I liked Nina in that one scene she had, and I would also love for Nina to be a main character (without being involved with Cameron). But I'm secretly also really interesting in seeing how their relationship could end towards the end of the season. Will Nina begin to suspect something about Cameron's job? And about Kirsten? How will Nina react? How will Cameron react? How will Kirsten react? I'm excited to see this play out, but like I said: Nina's a great character. I think she's a good person and I really hope (and think) she's not shady.

    God episode but I didn’t like that Liam is working for her Dad, what would that really accomplish and now she has a sister as well complicates things a lot. They are trying to make her Dad evil, but nobody knows his real story why did he left her and never come back and that boy in her mind is probably her dad showing in the image of the boy and why is he hiding himself and did he really had anything to do with dead of ed and why would he do things like that to his best friend with who he left his daughter and where is he now. I would like them to bring actor from season 1 who was acting as her dad and bring her real father more stories about him so we can find out really about him what is his story and is he good father or bad. Is her dad protecting his daughter and it looks like that when that boy is showing in her mind or is he afraid someone is going to kill his daughter to get to him, is he working at some top level maybe he is even CEO of all of them. Writers needs to do better things…
