What is Sacred Lies Season 2 Plot?
Season 1 of the drama series centers around Minnow Bly, a teenage girl who has been the part of a Kevinian cult for twelve long years. She ends up physically assaulting a mentally sick boy for unknown reasons and attracts police arrest. However, when the cops try to handcuff her, they realize that she has no hands. She is sent to a correction facility with no possibility of parole.
In the correction house, she meets Dr. Alan Wilson, a forensic psychologist who works with the FBI. He gives her an offer if Minnow tells him how the leader of the cult, ‘The Prophet’ died, he will offer her parole. Minnow accepts the offer and starts to reveal things inside the cult, which is far from being human.
The leader of the cult is Kevin or ‘The Prophet,’ who claims that he can talk to God under the name of ‘Charlie.’ The theories of ‘The Prophet brutally oppress the women in Kevinian cult.’ They are kept only to bear children and aren’t allowed to pursue any ambitions. The community claims to live a rural life in general.
Minnow recalls how the prophet wanted to marry her to add her as his ninth wife in the list. The prophet preached polygamy as an ideal practice and hence, considered teenage girls to be only suitable for marriage and bearing children. Minnow daringly denied the offer of marriage by ‘The Prophet.’ Furious in his rage, The Prophet asked Minnow’s father to cut off her daughter’s arms.
The deeper you dig. The darker the secrets. Sacred Lies: The Singing Bones premieres February 20th, only on Facebook Watch.

Finally, Minnow reveals as to how The Prophet’ died. Minnow and Jude’s friendship was caught among the cult, and both were tortured and beaten up by its members. Minnow found out that her sister Constance was brainwashed so that she marries The Prophet. Jude’s father sought revenge for his son’s ill-treatment and set the settlements on fire. During the fire, The Prophet had an asthma attack and collapsed. What finally happened to Jude is never known to the viewers.
Meanwhile, at the correction facility, Minnow finds a companion in the form of Angel. She helps Minnow adjusting her new life in prison.
