|“||Instead of sleeping last night, I decided to just power right through. You know, best to round up to an even four days. And while I was doing some light reorganization, I came upon this stack of love letters written to your father by another woman.||”|

"Love Letters" is the second episode in the fifth season of Schitt's Creek. It is the fifty-fourth episode overall.
Running purely on the adrenaline of no sleep for three days in the arduous trip back from Bosnia in addition to taking an upper of questionable origin to cope with the trip, Moira has developed not only a case of insomnia but hyperactivity. In needing something to do, she discovers nestled next to their bed on Johnny's side a bunch a racy love letters written to him from a another woman. Moira shows the letters to a bunch of people in an effort to get them on her side if anything were to happen to them as a couple. The one person she probably should have asked is Johnny, who could have explained the nature of the letters to her and why he left them in such an obvious place for her to find. One of the people to who she shows the letters is a grossed-out Alexis. In the process, Alexis and Ted have a discussion about romantic mementos that each has kept of the other from their first time as a couple. One of the things Alexis says she has kept is a locket Ted gave her, but which in reality she has since re-gifted as Christmas present to Twyla. Alexis has to try and find a way to get the locket back in not being shown as a liar. And Rose Apothecary is held up by someone wearing a balaclava, with David and Stevie the only two other people in the store at the time. As David and Stevie reflect on the incident after the fact, they may not want to disclose to anyone, let alone the police who they will have to inform what really happened.
