Viewers saw in flashbacks how Brent picked up Luke (Griffin Gluck) at the dock before the siblings quarreled over their mother’s passing, which was actually brought on by her drinking.

Luke was pushed by Brent because he didn’t want to hear the truth, which led to Luke hitting his head against the railing and falling into the water. The crime was first covered up after the eldest Chambers child told their father Steve (Paul Adelstein) what had transpired.

However, things changed when Luke’s body was found and Megan and Isabella (Lexi Underwood) were identified as potential suspects. The night Luke was slain, Megan was the only person with a gun in the cabin, according to a censored recording that Isabella reportedly provided the police.

When Megan discovered a video that showed Luke still alive after his fall, Cruel Summer dealt the audience a shocking blow at the conclusion of the episode.
