“The Family” dropped another twist into the Warren family mix Sunday (May 1), but warning — don’t keep reading if you haven’t watched the latest episode, titled “Fun Ways to Tell Boyfriend You’re Pregnant.”
In Sunday’s episode, Willa (Alison Pill) was understandably acting a little weird around Ben (Liam James). When he finally confronted her about it, she finally asked him what’s been weighing on everyone’s minds since it was revealed Ben is not Adam — did Ben kill Adam in order to escape?
Pill tells Zap2it that Willa is definitely having second thoughts about this scheme she concocted to put her family back together.
“It’s every nightmare come true. This person that she’s brought into their house, who she thought could put everything back together again, is the cause of her brother’s death. I mean, it’s so beyond believable. She has brought this murderer to live with them, so there’s guilt, but there’s also this unsafe feeling of, ‘Who is this person?'” says Pill. “She thought he was Adam’s friend, that he knew Adam better than any of them ever would, but now she realizes, ‘I have no idea what this person in my house is capable of.'”
Of course, in the episode, Willa only asks if Ben “hurt” Adam, not if he “killed” Adam, so Zap2it posits that Adam is still alive somewhere. Pill makes a non-committal sound at that guess, but she does say the final two episodes are going to be a roller coaster.
“[The final episodes] are so good! Some clarity happens around the Doug situation, like there’s some closure around Doug. But the final things that happen in the last like five minutes of the season finale will rock everybody’s beliefs,” Pill teases. “I watched it, and it’s crazy. Anything that you think you might know, you probably don’t, or you might have suspected, but also there’s stuff that you just won’t have seen coming. I can’t say anything, but I really just want to be like, ‘OH MY GOD!'”
“The Family” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
