Secretos y Mentiras is the 46th episode of series. It translates to "Secrets and Lies."


Teresa gets threatened by an FBI informant.[1]


Javier is processed into prison.

18 Hours earlier[]

Teresa, Pote, and Javier attend Rene's funeral. Judge Cecil Lafayette vows to hurt the people responsible for killing him. Davis visits his mother's tomb. Marcel mentions to Teresa that she died under mysterious circumstances.

Marcel's man had an issue with Oksana and she says she'll talk about it with him later. Kelly Anne calls Pote and says that Tony tried to leave and says he wants to go back to Mexico. Judge Lafayette meets with Teresa and she gives him the 10% payment she owes him -- $3 million. They tracked Rene's phone to Siete Gotas and they want to interview everyone that was there that night. Teresa says to start with Javier as he was running the bar that night.

Teresa questions Javier about what happened that night. He lies to her. She wants him to cooperate with his investigation. Teresa knocks on Tony's door. He tells her to go away and that he doesn't want to talk to her. She wants him to understand that he's safer with Pote.

Tony opens the door and demands to know if Teresa knew that Pote killed his dad.[2] You had me living with my father's killer. He says that he's going back to Mexico and that he never wants to see her again.

Javier tells Emilia that she needs to get ready to run. He lied to Teresa in order to keep Emilia safe. He's going to tell Teresa the truth. She just wants them to run. Teresa has been good to us. I can't leave her exposed like that. She asks where the hell he wants her to go. He gives her the plan and tells her to run and not look back. Javier kisses her goodbye and leaves. Javier calls Boaz to say that he's going to tell Teresa what they did. Boaz thinks it's a terrible idea but he needs to protect Teresa. Boaz invites him back to Mexico where he will protect him. Randall pulls up behind Javier and tells him to come with him.

Ishmael sits at the bar at Siete Gotas. He advises Teresa to answer her phone. Raul wants her to kill Cheo, who was recently arrested, so that the two of them don't get ratted out and spend the rest of their lives in federal prison.

Cheo needs to be taken out before he can make a deal. He won't go into witness protection without his wife, Luz, and son so he has 48 hours to take the deal. Teresa changes the plan so that there is a smaller risk of hurting innocents.[3]

Javier is caught in a lie by Randall. He pulls over in a deserted area and takes him into a bar. In a back room, Javier finds a man bound and gagged. Randall asks if he knows him and shows him his ID. He asks if that's one of the men he threw out opening night and Javier says no. Randall says that's too bad and they leave. Randall's men put a bullet in the prisoner's brain. Javier ignores a call from Emilia.

Now that Oksana has Teresa's product he's moving into Marcel's friend Shomari's business. They want her to intervene and get Oksana to back off. The Atlanta man also wants her to supply him with her product. Teresa apologizes but says that she can't get involved in territorial disputes. Ishmael stabs a mail worker who spots him fixing a bomb to the bottom of a mailbox. He then steals the man's lunch before Pote gets rid of the vehicle.

Teresa orders them to call off the bomb when she is told that there is a woman and a child in the car with Cheo. Pote shoots Ishmael but not before he flips the switch and the bomb explodes, hitting the 3 SUVs. Raul orders for his men to go to New Orleans and kill Teresa. At the junkyard crime scene, broken tail light glass is found. Javier texts Emilia and tells her to run.

Emilia calls Boaz and tells him that she's not okay and she misses her family and home and wants to go back. He says yes and that he misses her. Teresa meets with the Judge. Cheo has 48 hours to decide to sign a deal and has been put into protective custody. He gives one option to get close to Cheo but it's risky and they'll need help.

Javier comes home to find that Emilia is gone. Teresa wants someone to go into federal lockup and then the Judge will get them out. Marcel says he has a man who works as a guard who can help but murdering a witness under federal protection is a suicide mission.[4] Javier volunteers.[5]

Outside the room, Teresa tries to talk him out of it. As he is led to his cell, Javier is recognized as El Gallo by one of the prisoners, who vows to kill him.[6]

By the pool, Teresa speaks with Tony and reminds him of how they got to this point. She thinks that because they don't hate him, Tony feels like he's betraying his father but he's not. She hopes he changes his mind about going back to Mexico. With tears in her eyes, Teresa asks Tony to come live with her.

Javier finds a screwdriver in his toilet that was left for him. Kelly Anne and Tony exchange a tearful goodbye. Pote tells Kelly Anne that Tony tried to kill him but couldn't bring himself to do it. She is upset that he didn't do anything to stop him.

Emilia is pulled over and arrested by the cops while Javier is attacked and misses his chance to kill Cheo.

Dumas calls to say that Javier failed.[7]
