At the McMansion, Lily starts searching her parents' room. I keep hoping that she finds strange, creepy things like shrunken heads, jars full of teeth, or a collection of forceps of varying sizes, but no such luck. Mom returns home while Lily is searching. Will Mom catch her in the act? Wait. Why does it matter? Lily's been pretty obvious about her suspicions. Lily finds the locket and yearbook in the drawer of an end table. She turns around, and Mom is standing there. Oops, busted! Mom, I mean, not Lily, who points out that Mom lied to her yet again. So Mom is finally willing to tell the Lily the truth. Well, she's willing to tell Lily a story anyway. Whether or not it's true remains to be seen. The girl in the locket, Meredith, was Catherine's best friend. She compares her relationship to the one between Lily and Jennie, and now I know I should have put Jennie in the death pool poll last week. Phillip was Meredith's boyfriend. One night, when they were sixteen, Meredith went out with Phillip and never came back. They found an abandoned car, but they never found Meredith. Catherine says that she knew the minute Meredith went missing that Phillip had killed her, but he was never charged and nobody could ever find any proof. Catherine says she wasn't afraid of telling anybody what she thought, and Phillip hated her for it and accused her of turning Pasadena against him. Uh, doesn't telling everybody that she thinks Phillip killed Meredith constitute turning people against him? So Pasadena turned against him. Big deal. Couldn't he move to Burbank or Glenwood or something? Catherine insists that Phillip was coming to kill her that night. She tells Lily that the family knows the whole sordid tale, but Greeleys are raised to repress and not discuss the family's problems. Catherine looks very believable and sincere in her story -- her eyes are even watering -- even though it's so obvious that she's lying her ass off. Lily seems to believe her.
