Twisted Review: Finding a New Platform

at .  Updated at .

Past. Present. Future. There are three ways to live your life, and the three main characters of Twisted are each taking their own paths.

Twisted Season 1 Episode 16 marked the moment when Jo decided she needed to face forward and leave her Danny drama behind. 

If only it were that easy...

Twisted Season 1 Episode 15 ended with Danny breaking down and confronting his mother about moving Vikram's body from the ravine. This week, Karen claimed that it wasn't her, but most likely Jack. He wants to protect their family and she trusts that he can do so.

Feeling relieved, Danny shares this theory with Jo. She is a little nervous about trusting this unknown guy but she is also desperate to disentangle herself from all the Danny drama. I think after everything that happened at the end of the first half of Twisted season 1, Jo realized she needed to be looking out for herself.

Jo thought a meeting with the school counselor would help propel her in a new direction. She decided to run for Student Body President, but after a fight with Rico and watching Andie chicken out on stage, she urged people to vote for Andie instead.

Plus, Jo's go a new man by her side: Charlie.

Surprisingly, Charlie finally felt like he could tell Jo the truth about knowing Danny in juvie. The thing is, who really knows which of these guys is telling the real story?

I was relieved when I heard about the car accident. I mean maybe Danny didn't get the revenge he wanted, but at least he's not a killer.


Speaking of truth, Lacey FINALLY pulled it out of Danny after some shadiness and bribing. Lacey is firmly in the present and she wants to know the truth so she can just be with Danny, no secrets.

I don't think the truth that thought he killed his father is what ultimately pushed her away. It was that it happened and he was protecting Jo. Lacey will always be jealous of the connection Danny has with Jo.

Danny does seem to trust Jo differently. He chose to show up at her house the night he was on the run, not Lacey's. For some reason, he confides in Jo more and chooses to protect Lacey from the truth. Why do you think that is? Also what do you make of Vikram's ghost haunting Danny? I'm afraid that Danny's past will always control him.

This week's Twisted also introduced a very pretty young blonde named Whitney. Whitney's Jack's daughter, but don't you find the timing of her arrival just a little bit coincidental? Last week Tess admitted to giving a daughter up for adoption right before they had Jo. 

Could Whitney be Jo's half sister? Vote below and then sound off in the comments!
