Fan Theory #9

Submitted By: Emma

Fan Theory: The Mayor started to act weird when the case started to turn into another direction. It’s almost as he’s trying to hide something. I believe Vikram, the Mayor, and another party are responsible for soliciting young girls. Nobody in town, not even Danny or Karen knew they were coming back home so it’s just by accident Danny took the fall. Regina’s death is only a ploy to deflect media attention from the true plot. Besides, Vikram isn’t dead.

In the case of Tara, I truly believe Tara found out Tess and Vikram’s affair and was going to rat them out. Danny over heard them and as he watched stunned as Tess choked Tara. To prevent the information ever coming out. Tess is too chill for my liking. Danny being old enough to understand, took the blame because he knew how much the information would hurt Jo. Which is why he can’t tell Lacey and Jo the truth.

Archie, oh Arcie, he just loves the spotlight due to him lacking or needing the affection. He’s always out of town, or taking a break. It makes me wonder if he’s involved with Vikrams and the Mayors little ‘ring’. Blech! Archie the attention hogger he feels threatened by Danny and tries to sabotage him any way he can. Psshhh!! Pretend Archie Alpha.

Who killed Regina? The same person screening her calls and text. Nobody receives $2000 just for the hell of it.

The Mastersons and the Desais

Question: What is the full history between the Desai and Masterson families?

themothers

We know there’s a lot of history between the two families. Tess used to date Vikram in high school. She introduced him and Karen who then began to date. And Tess continued to hookup up with him, at least while they were in high school. We don’t know if their relationship continued for longer, but it’s definitely a possibility.

We know Danny and Jo practically grew up together (at least according to Jo). And the two families seem to be very close.

But is there more under the surface?

First there’s the theory I’ve seen suggested by several people that Jo might be Vikram’s biological daughter, arguing that Tess and he could easily have continued their affair past high school. This definitely provides another possible explanation to the next clue that connects the two families.

Danny’s desire to protect and keep safe, Jo, by not telling her his motive for killing Aunt Tara. What could put Jo in danger? Previously when Danny, Jo and Rico were discussing Regina’s text message, Danny was adamant that Regina could not possibly know his motive. Which would call into question the possibility that he’s concerned Jo knowing the motive could get her killed for that knowledge.

Which still leaves the question: what could Danny know, that could hurt Jo, either emotionally, physically or both? Given the fact that Jo was only eleven when the murder happened, it seems more likely it involves her family as a whole.

There is one more interesting connection between the two families: grudges. Karen accused Kyle Masterson of holding a grudge and that it has caused him to suspect Danny of murdering Regina. But what cold the grudge be? The Mastersons told Karen she was a bad mother, the Mastersons refused to allow Jo to be Danny’s character witness. Karen would have a good reason for holding a grudge, but what kind of grudge could Kyle have?

Fan Theory #5

Submitted By: Courtney

Fan Theory: I think (although its mostly guessing) that Rico killed Regina and framed Danny to get him back to prison permanently. He may have anticipated Joe’s feeling for Danny (and with his obvious like for her) decided to get rid of the competition.

Facts: He has access to Danny’s locker
He doesn’t like Danny and is convinced Danny killed Regina
He has a motive to kill (getting rid of Danny)
The show has not payed Rico much attention but has focused on his like for Joe and dislike for Danny… Could Rico be the sociopath?

Aunt Tara’s Power

Question: How could Tara destroy Danny’s family?

tara

In this week’s episode Danny told Jo that his Aunt Tara was going to destroy his family and ruin his life. After Jo was a bit skeptical, he assured her that Tara did of the power to do so.

Which raises the question of what possibly could Aunt Tara do that could destroy the family more than having the only son put away for murdering someone. Danny being convicted for murder clearly did affect the family badly. Karen is barely keeping it together, she’s stuck in a town where she’s a pariah, she’s having money troubles, Vikram had a drinking problem and they lost Tess and Kyle who seem to have once been their closest friends. Danny’s actions seriously dented the Desai family, honestly I wouldn’t say it’d be going too far to say that in a sense it destroyed it. Even if Danny were only taking the fall for someone else, say Karen or Vikram, Danny taking the blame makes the situation almost worse for the family. And killing Tara (or taking the blame for it) certainly, as he realized when talking to Lacey in the graveyard, ruined Danny’s life.

And yet in ‘Three for the Road’ Danny said to Jo ‘I don’t know if I regret what I did’. Whether Danny is talking about killing his aunt or covering for someone else, whatever Tara was going to do to the Desai family, seems would have had a worse effect then what Danny did. Which is a pretty darn powerful statement. Danny’s actions had a terrible result on the family. Yet he’s implied that whatever Tara was going to do, would have been far worse.

So what was it?

Danny assures Jo that Tara did have the power to destroy his family. Which certainly leads one to first think the ‘power’ Tara had was knowledge about something. After all there’s that old expression ‘knowledge is power’. Tara could have been threatening to expose something.

In a previous post I speculated, in a rather darkish theory, that Danny could have been the child of Vikram and Tara. Tara revealing this would certainly have destroyed the family and possibly ruined Danny’s life more than the murder. This would also explain Tara and Vikram hating each other for something that happened in their childhood. After all, if they had first become ‘attracted’ to each other back then, they could easily have grown up to hate each other for that attraction. However this seems less likely now as we know that Vikram and Karen have lived in the area since at least high school so the possibility that Karen isn’t Danny’s real mother is much less likely.

Tara threatening to expose any form of affair between Vikram and someone else (or Karen and someone else) while destroying the family, would still have less catastrophic implications then Danny murdering his aunt, something an eleven year old could theoretically not realize but a sixteen year old, with five years to think about it, probably would and wouldn’t now be saying things like ‘I don’t know if I regret what I did’.

So that makes me go back to the ‘power’ Tara had, and also something else Danny said to Jo in the same conversation. He said that he wanted to keep her safe. Which is very different from his previous statement that he wanted to protect her. Protecting Jo from the truth could easily mean protecting her from being hurt emotionally. Keeping her safe, implies a risk of physical harm. Which either implies to me that whatever power Tara had, whatever she could do to the Desai family, she also could do to the Masterson family. Or someone else killed Tara, Danny took the fall and he believes if Jo knew who and why she would be in real danger of being killed as well. Which might explain the motive behind Regina’s murder.

What do you think?

Fan Theory #4

Submitted By: Joan Smith

Fan Theory: I’ve been thinking a lot about this show (mostly because of how good it is) and I’ve arranged a couple of theories. First, I’ve been thinking about how Karen and Vikram had an affair before, so it might have continued after high school. Possibly making Danny’s father Jo’s too. If that is true, it would explain why Danny says he was trying to protect Jo all this time. Tara some how found out and Danny had to kill her to save his family and Jo’s too. Then Regina found out about it and Vikram, still being alive of course, got money so she wouldn’t tell any one about it. But for some reason Regina decided to tell Danny about it, possibly for some more money, and Vikram, or someone else who needed to keep that secret, killed Regina out of anger. I highly doubt this is what actually happened, but it’s how I made sense of what’s happening in the show.

Fan Theory #3

Submitted By: Sierra

Fan Theory: Main Theory – Remember when Danny said he couldn’t tell Jo why he killed his aunt because he’s protecting her? Jo’s father seems quite adamant on pinning the crime on Danny. This leads me to believe the following things:

Tess killed Tara. Kyle may’ve had an affair with Tara, and furious, Tess killed her in a rage. Kyle finds out, and he and his wife convince Danny to take the blame. This could explain why he’s so hell-bent on Danny killing Regina. He fears that his family’s secret could be exposed with Danny returning and sending him to jail for life would be the only way to keep it totally safe. Tess tries to be nice to him in order to make sure her secret is safe.

Poll: What do you think Danny’s relationship with Jo and Lacey will be?

There’s definitely been implications that Danny is attracted to Lacey, (I took his comment to Archie about how he and Lacey will never be friends to imply he’s admitted to himself that there’s that attraction and that now they’ll probably never be able to just be friends). But do you think the show will run with that and pursue a relationship between the two of them? Or do you think that Danny will change his interest to Jo? Or is this a set up for one (probably very painful) love triangle?
