Question: Was Archie telling the whole truth about his relationship with Regina?
Something about Archie’s new alibi doesn’t’ quite add up. At first he claimed to have been home all night but after Danny confronted him about borrowing Scott’s car that night, Archie confessed to meeting with the couch of a rival soccer team that evening. Lacey then confronted him about the DVD Regina made of him playing soccer and he said she made it for him to help because her uncle was the athletic director at the school. However three things don’t quite add up.
1. Admittedly Regina was a very outgoing and flirty girl. She didn’t hesitate to let people know when she found someone attractive. She was pretty forthright. Yet she doesn’t seem dumb. If you were trying to show off a guy’s soccer skills in a DVD to help him get a spot on a team you would not put in captions talking about his attractiveness and calling him things like ‘delicious’, it doesn’t make sense and certainly not something you’d want to show your uncle.
2. Why did she still have the DVD in her possession? If Archie went out to talk to the people that night, wouldn’t she have already given the video to her uncle?
3. Lacey asks him why he didn’t tell her about the meeting with the coach. To which he responds that he didn’t want to tell anyone, not even his parents, until he was sure it would work out. And yet he told Regina? Why? Just because her uncle was the athletic director? That was unlikely to have much effect on the school’s decision. Possibly he asked her about her uncle to figure what kind of guy he was, but it still comes off as strange that he talked to her about it when he didn’t even tell his parents he might be switching schools.
I definitely think Archie could still have been having some kind of affair with Regina. Either way I still think there are some major unanswered questions involving him, Regina and his alibi. He was meeting with the coach that night, but he had the car all night. What else might he have done? I doubt Archie is the killer, but he could know more then he’s letting on.
What do you think?
