Ending explained of 'One of Us is Lying'
The last episode starts off with Jake painting with Fiona on a beautiful lawn beside a big lake. The two are seen indulging in a flirty conversation which soon turns serious when Jake decides to confess the truth about what happened with Simon.
Earlier this season, it was shown that Fiona was a one-sided lover of Jake. She wanted justice so Jake's name could be in the clear; she befriends Nate and pretends she is in love with him so he gets more close to her; but he doesn’t want to lead her on so he suggests they should stay friends and just hang out.
However, later the murder club learns that Fiona is their harasser aka Simon says. They text and inform Nate as he is with Fiona at that point. After he learns the truth he tries to instigate her when she admits the truth unabashedly and gives Nate an ultimatum of bringing the one who shot Jake to her.
Nate obviously tries to take the fall but Fiona knows better. Later the club meets at Janae's house where it is shown them planning to get rid of Fiona and framing her instead of revealing Addy's ugly truth.
They plan to hack into the server of the yacht of Fiona's father, and make it appear as if she was doing her "dirty work" from there. However, when Addy and Maeve are on Fiona's yacht to execute the plan, Maeve tips Fiona off and pretends to support her. Addy gets tied to a chair while Fiona is holding a gun to her head. Soon Fiona starts telling Addy about her and Jake's blooming love story and how Jake's death left her with "only tears and a void". Later, she tries to shoot Addy but the revolver is empty and Maeve rescues her and reveals she did this to get Fiona's fingerprints on the gun.
The murder club comes to rescue Maeve and Addy which leads to Brownyn and Cooper getting hospitalized as they get hurt in the process; but Fiona gets arrested. Sadly, when Maeve goes to visit Brownyn, the latter feels betrayed by Maeve's action as Brownyn thinks this situation would never arise if Maeve did not pull that stunt. Moving on to Cooper, he learns that he might never get his strength and speed back because of the accident but Cooper is adamant to not let the worse happen.
However, the horror will continue as witnessed in the last few minutes of the last episode - setting up a third season of the teen murder mystery series.
