Could The Secrets She Keeps end in tragedy because of Aggie?

It’s hard to say what Aggie will do next on The Secrets She Keeps. It’s hard to tell if Baby Ben will make it out of the series alive.

At the end of the penultimate episode, we found out Ben has suspected meningitis B. It’s a dangerous infection and Ben needs hospital care. However, Aggie can’t let that happen. It means her secrets are out.

Of course, the doctor is going to have to report everything that’s happened. He knows there’s a baby in danger, whether he believes that baby is Aggie’s or not. He’ll want to put the baby first, which involves calling the police. This is one step closer for Meghan and Jack to get Ben back, but will it still be too late?

This isn’t the first time for Aggie on The Secrets She Keeps

We knew early on The Secrets She Keeps that Aggie has lost a child before. She was at a gravesite near a park (clearly her own-made gravesite) and she and Nicky talked about a lost child. Aggie claims she had a stillborn baby, but there’s clearly more to the story.

At the end of the episode, we learned that one baby in the gravesite isn’t alone. There are two others.

Has Aggie stolen babies before? Has she killed those babies to keep them with her forever? Is that something she will do to Ben?

It doesn’t seem like Aggie has been under suspicion in the past. If she was, there’s no way the police wouldn’t have taken more of an interest in her and her story. So, it suggests that either those babies weren’t kidnapped or she was never suspected of kidnapping the babies. Maybe we should go with the latter, despite Aggie staying in the same place to be by the gravesite.

Never underestimate a desperate woman

Aggie seems to want to protect Ben, but how long for? She wants a baby, but she isn’t willing to get Ben the medical attention he needs. That’s understandable considering blood work would link her baby to Baby Ben. It wouldn’t be long before the secrets are all out.

That makes Aggie a desperate woman. Could she choose to end Ben’s life? If she can’t have him, nobody can? Is that what’s going through her mind?

Never, ever underestimate a desperate woman. Aggie could be willing to do anything, and that could include killing both Ben and herself as she’s on the verge of being caught. Will this story have a happy ending for Meghan?
