Twisted Review: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

by at . Comments

Twisted has finally hit the Pretty Little Liars level of creepiness. Of course, the whole show is based on a murder case, but "Docu-Trauma" featured pranks that brought things to a whole new level.

The question of the night is this: do you believe the final confession?

Searching For Clues

So things kicked off pretty well. Danny and Lacey were hot and heavy, basking in the glow of new love... or at least lust. Jo was even getting asked out by Tyler, played by Chris Zylka. It's too bad Tyler turned out to be a grade A d-bag because Jo could really use the distraction! Danny referred to her as being "like a sister." Ouch, it must've hurt to get friend-zoned like that! Then again Rico has been feeling that pain for weeks, probably even months.

He told someone I was like his sister. Unless we’ve time travelled back to the middle ages I’m pretty sure that rules out anything ever happening. | permalink

Then the prank with the jump-ropes happened on the front lawn. Jarring yes, but not full on terrifying. I never realized until this episode that Lacey and Jo had seen Tara Desai's dead body. I guess we forget how traumatic that day was for them too. It's sure to stir up awful memories.

Then we get to the uber-creepy part. Danny and Lacey are making out and having a picnic in the dark woods, which is just asking for trouble. Ever heard of just going to some random restaurant a few towns away? Anyway, suddenly these guys with Danny masks and hair pop out and stand there with red jump ropes around their neck. Obviously Lacey and Danny were followed, so could Archie have made this plan? Are Archie and Tyler in cahoots? It seems likely that Tyler was the one behind the prank at the party. The masks part just really reminded me of PLL.

Also who do you think was filming Danny and Lacey at the end? It probably wasn't Tyler at that point, he was never in the outfit and mask at the party. How long do you give it until Jo finds out about them? Lastly, what was up with Karen's confession? Does anybody believe she'd actual kill Regina?

Karen is shady, but it seems likely she is covering for Danny and trying to spare him more humiliation. She walked in and saw that horrible prank and she loves her son more than anything. She loves him enough to go to jail for him. Or perhaps maybe Karen is a lot shadier than we thought and she knew about Regina's possible affair with Vikram. Things are getting more intense each week!
