Vikram and Tess

Question: Why is Tess the one who knows Vikram is alive?

VikramTess

In the last minute of the mid-season finale, Tess calls Vikram and tells him it’s time for him to come home. Which raises the question, why was Tess and not Karen the one who knew he had faked his death?

It seems unlikely that they would both know. At least unlikely that both are in on the secret together, as they have only recently renewed their friendship and seem to have had no history together that past five years and have openly discussed Vikram’s death. Also it seems unlikely Karen, who is completely devoting herself to her son and would mention several times how hard Vikram’s death has been on him and not share with him the truth.

So if Karen doesn’t know, why does Tess?

There is of course that possibility that Tess and Vikram are having, or have had, an affair. One popular theory is that Jo is Vikram’s daughter, and if that was connected to the reasons he faked his death and (possibly) Regina’s murder, then it might be natural that he and Tess would be working together to keep it a secret.

But it feels like there would have to be more than that to Vikram’s decision to go missing. Tess on the phone to him said ‘it’s time to come home’, which heavily implies they both knew at some point he would return. Besides, the presence of the PI proves there’s much more going on than the true parentage of one teenage girl. She may still be Vikram’s daughter, but there is much more going on below the surface.

Could Tess be involved in Marna Inc. and whatever is happening in Connecticut? Karen also appears to have been, at least somewhat, aware of what her husband was doing in Connecticut, but she has not confided at all in Tess on the subject, which would have seemed natural after Kyle showed her the letter sent to Regina, if she knew Tess had been involved.

So it seems likely that whatever Tess’ involvement with Vikram and/or Marna is, Karen doesn’t know about it.

It’s possible Vikram was forced to confide in Tess. Maybe he needed help to fake his death. Karen has said they were having problems in their marriage, maybe it was because of that Vikram turned to Tess, with whom he had years of history. Or maybe he didn’t trust Karen for another reason? Maybe Tess doesn’t trust her either, and her recent attempts at friendship have been a ploy in order to sound her out for information?

Fan Theory #12

Fan Theory: I think this is what really happened. Alright so Danny is innocent with Tara and Regina. Regina is obviously dead but Tara is not. The P.I. that Cheif Masterman gets is Tara. I’m positive. And Tess calls Vickram in the finale. Something is going on between them. Tara is trying to take down the whole Desai family and I think it’s over the fact that someone tried to kill her. I think Tara killed Regina because look at all the evidence. When Pheobe had a flashback with Lacey, Regina stepped out of the car with a scratch from Tara. The lisence plate was the same as the P.I.’s which is tara!

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.

Fan Theory #9

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.

Fan Theory #7

Fan Theory: My theory is that Vikram killed Tara and had his son take the fall for it because he is a minor. Danny had no reason to kill his aunt when he was just a child.

And as for Regina, she was killed by Tess. Vikram had a thing with Tess and Regina knew about it. Regina blackmailed Vikram and Tess, hence the messages with the money. Tess somehow found out that Regina was going to tell Danny everything. So, Tess killed Regina to keep it a secret. Tess saw a party with many people as a good night to kill, so she did.

Danny Desai: Sociopath?

I’ve now read two very excellent posts which question whether Danny is a sociopath.

ABC’s “Twisted” attempts to live up to its name

and

It’s TWISTED When Someone Confesses To Murder…

DannyDesai

Whether Danny is a sociopath is probably one of the most intriguing questions of the show, and as pointed out in the second article I listed, very important in figuring out whether or not he really killed his aunt given the fact that the show has made a point of telling us twice that sociopaths very seldom kill.

When the show started I was absolutely convinced there was no way Danny could be a sociopath, but now between great writing and great acting, I’m actually beginning to wonder. I’m definitely not convinced he is, but I am curious.

If Devil dannyanny isn’t a sociopath, he’s still a guy with absolutely no regret over his actions (he may regret some of the consequences but not the actions themselves). While making out with Lacey on top of his aunt’s grave, Lacey ran away after looking at the gravestone. Left alone Danny glanced at the grave stone and then smirked. Whether he killed Tara or took the blame for someone else, the natural response would not be to smile. Looking at the gravestone of someone, let’s say, your father murdered, you’d still feel bad about it.

So either Danny is a sociopath or Tara was such a horrible person and/or was getting ready to do something so terrible to the Desai family, that Danny feels no remorse over her death. He has actually said to Jo ‘I don’t know if I regret what I did’. And so far the show has given hints that either of the options are possible.

Danny’s therapist described sociopaths as loving risk and not considering consequences. She said they find it easy to lie imitate human emotion. Danny showed an inclination for risk when breaking into the apartment. He’s also calmly and cleverly lied on several occasions about the necklace. He has also seemed to imitate human emotion when pretending to be upset and calling Karen ‘mom’ begging her to believe him, only to have his expression go curiously blank after she can no longer see his face. On top of it all the way every time someone confronts him he easily manages to manipulate the situation and turn it round against his interrogator shows an ability to manipulate.

However there have been hints that Tara was possibly a truly dislikable person:

1. Tess and Kyle mentioned that Tara always looked ‘pissed off’. Additionally in the photograph we saw from Danny’s fourth birthday that showed him with his aunt, he looked unhappy. Why would a four year old be so grumpy at his own birthday, unless he just wasn’t happy to be forced to take a photograph with his aunt? In the flashback that the show opened with Jo and Lacey also wondered if Danny was having ‘more family problems’. He seems to have gotten along well with his father, and while his mother and he have a somewhat strained relationship, it doesn’t seem from what we’ve been told that it was ever overly contentious. Did he have problems with his aunt?

2. His father and Tara always hated each other from something dating back to childhood. That’s a really long time to hold a grudge. What could have happened that was so terrible that they hadn’t gotten along since childhood? More curiously, why would his father would still let Tara babysit? And why Tara would still want to?

3. If Danny is to be believed Tara was going to do something really terrible to the Desai family and that was his motive for killing her. As I mentioned in a previous post, if Danny is telling the truth, whatever it was would have to be really terrible to have a worse impact on the family then Danny being convicted of murder.

Perhaps Tara was the sociopath?

So which is it? Is Danny a sociopath? Or was Tara such a dark person that Danny really can summon no emotion resembling regret over her passing?

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.
