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?

What do you think?

Fan Theory: I think we can almost be sure that Vikram is still alive. There is no reason in any show that they would emphasize that the body wasn’t found. I do think that Danny is innocent both for Tara and Regina. I think it was his father who killed Tara but am unsure why. Maybe she was a family threat for financial reasons? We also already know that Danny and his mom have a complicated relationship so Danny may have covered for his dad because he had such a strong connection with him where his mother was lacking.

If Danny did kill his aunt, I think his reasoning would be to protect Lacey and/or Jo. Tara must have had something against the girls or their families that Danny knew would destroy them if it got out. Danny has already stated many times that those two are the ones he cares about more than anything, even more than himself.

Fan Theory: I definitely think that Danny’s dad killed Tara. And that Danny took the blame since he was so close to his dad. He knew that his dad would go to jail for the rest of his life, and he didn’t want that. And he probably figured that he would only get juvie if he took the blame for killing Tara. But, I think the reason why Danny’s dad killed Tara is because she might have know about a possible affair between Tess and him. And he did not want that getting out. That would also explain why Danny will not tell Jo why he did it, and why he says that he is ‘protecting’ her. He probably doesn’t want Jo to get hurt finding out about her mom cheating.

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: 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.

Fan Theory: I think that Karen’s confession was true and that she really did kill regina and that karen is the true pychopath of the series by manipulating danny into thinking that Tara had to die by fueling Danny’s motivation to kill her by exploiting the bad blood between Danny’s father and Tara and that she found out about vekrom and regina and had him killed and somehow regina found out and Karen was paying her off but when regina texted danny Karen went into his room sometime during the night and fearing being exposed killed her explaining her actions through the series like when kyle first asked her about the necklace after planting it on danny she faked him out to completely make him focus on danny and make the town torture him more while she plays the part of the weeping widow and troubled mother all the while she laughs at all the chaos she has masterminded while she has her perfect scape goat in her son danny and thats danny’s phsyco actions and lies are a product of his time in juvie because as the series has gone on while he hasn’t completely opened up he shows way more emotion than he did in the first few episoes the only reason Karen confessed was because it would just make her look like a protective mother all the while causing more chaos in the town.

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?
