The Moth Balls

Question: Who, if anyone, poisoned Cole?

mothballs

With all the mysteries going around Green Grove, who poisoned Cole didn’t seem very important. But after this week’s episode, it was certainly brought into the forefront and created some interesting questions.

We don’t have a whole lot of information. Cole thought he had food poisoning. Moth balls were found in the locker room, which can be used to make someone sick. Only Danny and Cole were in the locker room at that time, or at least so they thought. What Cole ate or drank, that the moth balls could have been put in, we don’t know but given the fact even he is suspicious of Danny now, he must have eaten something.

There are a couple of possibilities of what might have happened.

Obviously, Danny could be a sociopath and have done the deed himself. But you’d have to wonder why he would then throw away a pack of moth balls in locker room? No one would have been suspicious if those hadn’t been found. Well alright, some people might have been. When Cole’s illness was first announced the rest of the soccer team did give Danny a few dirty looks, but Danny never would have been asked to leave the team, the couch never would have gone to the school board and Danny wouldn’t have been expelled. It would have been easy for Danny to just put the moth balls back in his backpack, take them home and dispose of them there. It wouldn’t have raised any questions.

A second possibility is that Regina’s killer poisoned Cole in an attempt to make Danny look guilty, trying to turn people further against him and let him take the fall for Regina’s murder. After all, if Danny is to be believed (which we can’t say for a fact he is) someone already placed the necklace in his locker, possibility in an attempt to frame him. However who, other than the team, knew that Cole had taken Danny’s position on the team? Word could have gotten out but between the decision and poisoning there was less then twenty-four hours. Word would have had to have gotten out fast.

I’d certainly like to know, what caused that one couch to turn Danny in? Did someone say something to him? Was he influenced in any way?

There is a third possibility. A theory that was suggested here by Zack, that Cole truly did have food poisoning and that when Archie heard he decided to plant the moth balls to frame Danny. Honestly this makes a lot of sense to me. First off the moth balls were only found after the couch told the team that Cole was sick and Archie proceeded to make a pointed remark to Danny about being alone with Cole that morning. Secondly he would have motive to really hate Danny after Danny turned the rest of the team against him by forcing him to admit he’d met with a couch from another team. On top of the way he acted throughout the hearing this definitely seems plausible.

Archie’s Alibi

Question: Was Archie telling the whole truth about his relationship with Regina?

Archie

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.

Fan Theory #2

Submitted By: Triauna

Fan Theory: I’ve commented a lot on my theories on here and I do a lot of brainstorming so I always come up with more. My friends and I always debate on everything involved around this show and for those who watch Pretty Little Liars, I believe that it will be dragged out. So my friend is going for the more obvious suspects, like Danny and the guys he is having problems with but to be more technical, that’s what they want us to think. Yeah Danny’s hiding something but is he the main suspect? I don’t think so…and we may not know till seasons later but it’s okay. I believe the mom is suspicious, for example, a lot of people failed to comment on her relationship with the principle, yeah it may be because she wanted him back in school but did they ever say that’s why?

Recap S1 E3: PSA de Résistance

ep3 pc1The episode opens with Lacey and her friends working on a school play directed by Phoebe for sobriety awareness. It’s a pretty bad play and Lacey’s friends are misbehaving.

At the diner Jo and Rico are studying when Danny arrives.

Lacey is nervous about having to give a statement to the police tomorrow. Archie mentions he was home the night of Regina’s party/murder, resting for a big game.

Tess Masterson is upset that she’s lost her art studio downtown, but her husband suggests they just clear out the garage for her and offers to help her that night. Kyle mentions that he’s going to go talk to Karen about the photo of Tara that Tess had seen at the house. Tess mentions that Tara looked pissed off in the photo and Kyle comments that she always looked pissed off.

Danny tries to talk to Lacey in school and win her over but Archie comes along and is very rude to him and walks off with Lacey.

Kyle shows up at the Desai house and apologies to Karen for the dinner but he mentions the photo being moved during the dinner and Karen gets mad and shuts the door.

During class, a girl named Gina announces she wants to switch lab partners, because she hooked up with her current partner Scott and he never called her back.

Lacey is furious at Danny, because she believes he told Kyle about her sleeping over. Even though he says it must have been his mom who told, she doesn’t believe him and tells him to stay out of her life.

Danny is upset but Jo suggests that he volunteer to help with the sobriety event, since Lacey will be there, and Jo also offers to volunteer with him. Phoebe puts them in charge of helping create a public service announcement video about the dangers of drinking.

Kyle talks to his deputy Sandy about Tara Desai’s necklace. He’s trying to find a picture of it because while he believes it to be the same one Regina was wearing, he can’t prove it. He states that the necklace was in Tara’s purse when Danny killed her and so is not in any of the crime scene photos. He realizes it might appear in one of the photos used to try and sell the house.

Backstage Jo overhears Scott complaining about Gina and he also mentions that the only reason he hooked up with her was because she gave him a ride after he lent his car to Archie.

After the cast is very dismissive of the play, Phoebe gets upset and storms off. Danny rewrites the play and he and Jo take it to Phoebe who likes it and agrees to cast Jo as the lead.

Kyle comes home late and Tess is a little hurt he forgot about helping her clean the garage but tells him she understands how important the case is to him.

Jo shows up late at the diner to study with Rico and he’s hurt thinking she’s bored with him and he leaves.

When Danny comes home Karen confronts him about moving the photo. He lies and says he didn’t and in turn confronts her for telling Kyle about Lacey and yells at her that he doesn’t need protecting.

Lacey likes the new play Danny’s written, while her friend Sarita is angry that she’s been cut out of it and put in charge of the PSA. Archie accuses Danny of manipulating people.

Kyle gets the realtor photos of the Desai house but finds that all the personal family photos had been removed for the house showings.

ep3 pc3A couple of minutes before the play is set to start, Archie walks out, angry that Danny is using it to get closer to Lacey, and Danny takes his part. The play opens, staring Danny, Jo and Lacey. The play deals with living with the past and forgiving where forgetting is impossible. Danny has clearly used it to speak to Lacey, and she very moved.

After the play the PSA is shown, but Sarita has filled it with video of Jo getting drunk at Regina’s party. Rico turns off the video and follows an upset Jo outside.

Lacey snaps at Sarita for making the video and then talks to Danny. He suggests she talk to Jo but she says it’s not that simple. She then demands to know what he wants from her. He takes a step closer to her and they share a brief moment before she storms off.

Rico and Jo reconcile. She says she loved they’re time together but she doesn’t want to go back to just trying to be invisible. She admits for the past five years she’s been afraid to let people see her, but she wants him to join her in her new approach to life. They go off to the diner together.

Danny tells Archie he’s right and that he’ll never be friends with Lacey again but asks Archie to tolerate him and not always call him a freak and psycho, saying he just wants to fit in. Archie says he’ll never fit in and leaves. Danny notices that door to the athletic department and smiles.

Kyle comes home and tells Tess that nothing is more important to him then her and he starts helping clear out the garage.

ep3 pc4

Karen is flipping through a photo album, in which every picture of Tara has been removed, when Danny comes home and tells her he joined the soccer team. Karen confronts him about getting rid of all the photos. He says he did it because it was morbid to keep them around, that he’s trying to start over and they reminded him of what he has done. She tells him she knows about Regina having the necklace and asks what he’s hiding. He admits that he had was scared when Kyle showed him the photo of the necklace and knew how bad it looked, but claims he doesn’t know where the necklace is now. He begs her to believe him, saying he needs her too. She hugs him and tells him she does.

Back at the diner Rico and Jo are talking. He mentions that Gina told him she hooked up with Scott on the night of Regina’s party. Jo remembers Scott mentioning that Archie had borrowed the car the night of the hook up and realizes that means Archie has lied about being home the night of the murder.

As Kyle is cleaning up the garage he finds some old pictures of Jo. He realizes Tara is in one of them and that he now has a photo of her wearing the necklace…
