He also told her that, from his own experience, he knows that secrets have a way of coming out. Craig tells Sierra that he thinks Lucy will tell Dusty the truth.
At Metro, Lucy is shocked that Dusty knows about Rafael and her. She asks him if Craig told him, but he tells her that no one had to tell him, he knew because he knows her.
