Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 8 Overview: Confess Your Sins


By no means come between a pair of ride-or-die BFFs. They may make certain revenge is felt in the event that they ever really feel betrayed.

Megan and Isabella held Luke accountable for his lies on Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 8.

Put together yourselves, Merciless Summer season followers! We have made it to the cabin, and the stress has skyrocketed. This thrilling homicide thriller is beginning its roller-coaster highs towards the climax.

“Confess Your Sins” was a chapter carried by how robust Winter 1999 turned. We have waited most of Merciless Summer season Season 2 to get to this second, so the stakes have been excessive. (And the early motion delivered!)

The summer time of 1999 added loads of gasoline to the fireplace burning within the winter. We could not have one with out the opposite to land the reality bombs. However for Summer season 2000? It was on the again burner.

With a plot that jumps round three intervals, they can not at all times get equal focus. Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 5 was the closest, the place every little thing felt self-contained and important to the thriller.

The summer time of 2000 has been dealt a brief hand at occasions as a result of the characters need to catch up after Luke’s physique is found. And we won’t transfer ahead an excessive amount of as a result of there’s nonetheless a homicide to witness up to now.

As soon as once more, the summer time stalled in its pacing, as a substitute selecting to tug out the drama.

Loads of begins, stops, and exposition to fill the timeframe. There wasn’t something new added we did not already know.

The closest new info was Megan telling Isabella why she frolicked with Ned.

Her reply was very comprehensible and one thing Megan would need. She’s at all times centered on her targets and doing stuff she might declare as her personal. Even Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 1 dealt together with her frustration at having to share her life with Isabella.

Ned and the tech world have been all hers.

Isabella: Nicely, yeah. I imply I’m simply saying if I have been hella paranoid, I’d put them someplace utterly unlikely. Like with my taxes or in a very completely different database, proper?
Megan: That’s really actually good.
Isabella: You possibly can be much less shocked. Studying folks is like my superpower.
Megan: You do have a expertise for it.

Nonetheless, we’d like extra information on why she turned to cyber crimes. Like how did Ned get her to conform to hack?

There’s extra to this than merely needing a separation in her life. Megan has an entire completely different facet to her that solely scratched the floor.

Steve and Brent are absolutely the worst. Like an entire “the apple does not fall removed from the tree” scenario, proper?

The summer time of 1999 (and the winter of 1999) proved but once more why the Chambers males are trash.

Brent is operating wild and speaking an enormous sport, however when the chips fall, his daddy additionally bails him out—even this time after his gross habits towards Isabella and undoing her prime.

Isabella: What are you doing?
Megan: On the lookout for you!
Luke: We needed to determine what to do tonight.
Isabella: Oh. Cool.
Megan: What are you up for? You at all times have one of the best concepts.
Isabella: Completely something.

Right here comes Steve to flex his poisonous masculinity and canopy up for his son’s horrible angle. An honest father or mother would’ve held his son accountable for a way he handled Isabella and made her uncomfortable. However no, Steve is the worst enabler.

He is fortunate Brent by no means bought any fees and that Parker solely dumped him. Brent deserved rather a lot worse, and hopefully, his karma comes swiftly and painfully.

It is good that Parker and Isabella bonded after every little thing that occurred. We solely bought the primary few hints of their friendship beginning, however we all know they will ultimately turn out to be BFFs later.

This makes Parker’s eventual betrayal on Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 6 much more surprising.

Coming to Chatham, Isabella appeared the worldliest and most reasonable of the teenagers. She knew how merciless the world might be and did not like optimism blind her judgment. Parker was a great steadiness for her as a result of she appeared mature and did not settle for Brent’s habits.

Tim: Yo, Isabella? You wanna get moist?
Isabella: Ummm, provided that it’s for charity. Which, I assume is you? However nonetheless, nah, I’m good.
Parker: Wow, Tim and his limp hose.

Plus, Parker might simply spot Isabella holding again the reality through the automotive wash. You possibly can see it on her face; she knew there was extra to the story.

I want we bought extra scenes of them collectively, particularly to get a distinction between how Isabella’s friendship with Parker was completely different than hers with Megan’s. The ride-or-dies felt extra intense, whereas she and Parker have been extra of an unstated understanding.

Do you suppose Isabella advised Parker the reality about Luke shedding his virginity? She stored the key from Megan, however Parker is a special story.

The percentages are low, particularly since Luke pressed onerous to make sure the reality would by no means come out.

Even at their lowest, Isabella would by no means do one thing to harm Megan deliberately. Revealing that reality to the world would trigger a tidal wave of points. Megan cannot deal with betrayal properly; she lashes out at everybody.

The occasions on the cabin proved that principle.

Now, it is time to focus on the revenge on the cabin. Or what we’ll name “Luke’s Villain Arc.”

This little boy stored digging his grave one remark after the subsequent. Certain, he was drugged and drunk, however he had completed and stated all these items lengthy earlier than Megan tied him to the mattress.

We known as it for weeks now that his insecurity and have to “be the person” could be his undoing. His good boy-next-door picture was solely a ruse to cowl up all of the horrible issues he stated and did.

Luke might be a pleasant man in his on a regular basis life, however his actions do not help that. Somebody who cared about his girlfriend would not report a intercourse tape, brag about dishonest, or attempt to cheat on her. He cares an excessive amount of about his picture and popularity.

Did anybody accurately guess that Luke recorded the intercourse tape?

He was suspicious, however these theories have been pushed apart to concentrate on different folks. Like, Luke could not have been that horrible? He could not be like Brent, proper?

Isabella: Luke, if Brent didn’t make the intercourse tape between you and Megan, who did?
Luke: I did.

Mistaken! He did not do it with the identical seriousness as Brent, however he nonetheless recorded a intercourse tape with out Megan’s consent.

And if it was just for “pleasure” for him and Megan down the road, he might’ve simply advised me. Loads of time has handed because the scandal broke out, so he might’ve rapidly come clear.

He probably had different causes for that tape. Perhaps it was a contest in opposition to Brent and his many secret movies?

Luke’s different massive villain second was revealing the reality about his virginity.

Do you suppose Megan believed his lies? Luke pressed onerous and tugged on the feelings, however he was a confirmed liar. Megan cannot consider him after every little thing; there is not any means she would fall for this.

She has proof that he cannot be trusted between the dishonest try and his bragging. Luke is barely out for himself.

No matter why they stored the key, Isabella and Luke have been courting then. It might’ve been good if that they had advised the reality, however just one used it as ammunition on the cabin. And that wasn’t Isabella.

Talking of ammunition, the cliffhanger ended with Isabella firing a gun on digicam. Their testimonies to Sheriff Myer made it look like they have been testifying in opposition to one another.

However Luke could not have died from the gunshot at that time. Their chat that Parker overheard confirmed they weren’t collectively when Luke died and have been nonetheless suspicious of one another.

My principle is that the gunshot might be from a clean gun.

A prank to push Luke to the brink and seize him on digicam confessing to every little thing. Whoever killed Luke needed to have occurred afterward.

We nonetheless have two extra episodes left of Merciless Summer season Season 2, so loads of time stays on this homicide thriller. Let’s not overlook the large twist of Merciless Summer season Season 1 Episode 10 did not occur till the ultimate minutes. Something might occur at that cabin.

Final Ideas From The Archive:

  • Sheriff Myer goes to search out loads of footage on these cameras. Perhaps it’s going to reveal if another person drove up the cabin after Isabella and Megan left?


  • Actually? A video digicam from 1999 picked up audio, not to mention an audio crew made it clear, of Megan and Isabella plotting their revenge throughout a loud social gathering? No dwelling digicam was that good twenty years in the past.


  • Luke figuring out about Brent’s secret intercourse tapes (and watching them) cemented him as a horrible man. Nobody who stood again and did nothing because it continued might be a great man.


  • Who might it’s if Luke is adamant that he did not launch the tape? One of many gross man pals? Jeff? Steve? Parkers or one of many women?

Now, over to you, Merciless Summer season followers.

What did you consider “Confess Your Sins”?

Did Isabella homicide Luke with the gunshot? Who do you suppose launched the intercourse tape? What is going to Sheriff Myer do now with the testimony?
