'A Million Little Things' Season 3 Episode 3: Eddie did not kill Alex, Reverend's revelation leaves fans shocked
Just as Katherine (Grace Park) and Carter (Sam Pancake) try to figure out what really happened, the truth is revealed to Eddie
In Season 3 Episode 3 of 'A Million Little Things', Alex's father Reverend Stewart (Gerard Plunkett) visits Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) in his house to meet him. Here, he makes a revelation that has shocked everyone — Eddie, after all, did not kill Alex that summer. Just as Katherine (Grace Park) and Carter (Sam Pancake) try to figure out what really happened, the truth is revealed to Eddie. This new development has left fans of the show shocked.
As it turns out, the truth is, "Rev. Stewart tells Eddie that Alex died to a bad reaction to drugs Colleen given her. #AMillionLittleThings". Stewart makes the revelation suddenly as he recalls how his own older daughter Colleen eventually brought on the death of her own sister. He then helped cover it up because Colleen's life would have been ruined if it continued. All this while, he did not think his lie hurt anyone until he found out Eddie was blaming himself. "ugh this took me by surprise #AMillionLittleThings" one fan said. "He covered it up with his daughters after Eddie felt bad #AMillionLittleThings" another added. "My face when Alex’s Dad said THAT! #AMillionLittleThings #LittleThingsWithFlo," another shocked fan said.

There was another secret in this episode. The show was building up to show that Reverend Stewart hit Eddie, but as it turns out, he didn't hit him either. It was not a red pickup truck that hit him and fled, but it was a red SUV driven by someone else. Stewart even chased that car but couldn't catch it in time. Even Katherine and Carter figure this out at their end that it was an SUV that hit Eddie.
Alex's father's revelation comes at a time when Eddie is going through a very hard time. Perhaps it was for the best as it has now freed Eddie of any guilt he might have had associated with Alex and her death. Towards the end of the episode, Eddie takes prescription medicine for his pain and not ibuprofen as he was all this while. He was avoiding it because he had been sober for long, but now, without anyone more guilt, he can focus on getting better.
'A Million Little Things' airs on Thursdays at 10 pm ET/ PT.
