Marlene's answer implies that Ezra's explanation is, in fact, a lie (or at least not the whole story) — after all, if we already know the whole truth, wouldn't Marlene have have said that, instead of saying "Yes" to a question about finding it out soon?
This tweet, combined with Ian Harding telling us that the money is going to involve "kind of a one-two-punch reveal" and hinting that "[Ezra]’s not as good as he’s made out to be" leads us to think there is a whole lot more to that pile of cash than Ezra is letting on. It sounds like the real story might not be an easy one to swallow.
Where do you think Ezra got the money? Let us know in the comments below.
