The Killer..no spoilers, just speculation...

In the latest episode, at the very end, JD tells Abby that its all about her.

While i do think there is a connection between wakefield and Abby (more on that later), i dont think thats what JD was implying.

Since the beginning, i thought that the killer had to be someone we'd never expect at all. That means he has to be one of the 'nice guys'. And, there are 2 nice guys on the show...Henry and Jimmy. Cal too...but he's not one of the main characters so he cant be it.

Abby came back to the island after years...and in all that time, she had never talked to Jimmy. Now that she's back, they're kinda picking back up where they left off.

Also, Henry has been with Abby the whole time she was away.

My theory: It could be Henry...who has been in love with Abby the whole time and is losing it now coz he's seeing her with Jimmy. That would also explain the look on Henry's face in the final scene of epsiode 8 and why he has blood on his hands...


Now, on to the connection between wakefield and Abby...Abby's mother knew wakefield before she came to the island. And her dad said she had been involved with him etc etc...i think its pretty clear that wakefield is her father.


Im not sure how all these things are going to tie in together in the end...but i think that its just gonna get better from here...

I disagree - I think he looked a bit grevious/stricken because he just saw his last family member die. The blood could be from trying to unhook Richard from the stump. Or he may have shot JD himself.
But I don't think Henry loves Abby. He loses it when they pick back up again? The reason she's home and, thus, back with Jimmy is because he invited her to his wedding. Abby wasn't back with Jimmy when they killed Cousin Ben. She hadn't even seen him yet.
Agreed about the Wakefield as the biological daddy though. Creepy but ultimately probably correct.
I kinda sorta think it's the inn-keeper wedding-planner woman (John Wakefield's secret lover? She was the last person to see the Priest, knows the inn well enough to know everyone's routines without being conspicuous, is sizable enough to overpower Malcom and others etc. etc.)
Or maybe the brunette chick. Because I think she's suspicious. She's Wakefield's other daughter or his pseudo-fan girl or something. That would be quite the twist.

I thought it was the inn keeper also until last weeks episode. The clues were pointing to her. She was the last one to see the priest alive and gave him a scone maybe knowing that he may take a little walk, and be able to get rid of him. Then because she planned the wedding and was now doing the rehearsal she knew where Mr. Wellington would be when she asked for the lights to be turned off. When Hunter died you could see the Inn's logo on the shotgun and in the last episode you know she has the keys to the shotgun cabinet........Unfortunately, I have to say she is not the killer, because when the deputy was being killed at the sheriff's office the next scene was her at the inn with the wedding party.
The Brunette chick you are talking about I am thinking is Beth. She is the only one from the wedding party that I do not have an alibi as of yet. You have really not heard anything about her character up until the last couple episodes, and the playing dumb about Malcolm's bags in the bedroom. If you want here is the link to my blog on harpersglobe.com, I have an outline on why it cannot be someone, please give me your input.

I think its jimmy, although the inn keeper or Beth would have been better, because no has really cared or grew attached to their characters. and if it was jimmy it would be a bigger shock, let down, disappointment because of course everyone is rooting for Abby to get this all over with and move on..hopefully with jimmy, he is so cute. although if her dad is wakefield then that sounds hard to believe she would be fine. but to get to my point, unfortunately i think its jimmy, everything really falls into place, the killings start when Abby comes back, he is not always accounted for, he works at the dock where the first murder happened, he knows everyone and has had plenty of time to plot a revenge, motive and opportunity. its jimmy.

All I can say, is that it's definitely not Jimmy! First of all, he probably didn't even know that Abby was coming back to the island. Not even Henry, who had invited her to his wedding, knew whether she was really going to show up. Then in one episode Abby stayed the night at Jimmy's. So he couldn't have been responsible for the murder(s) that happened the very same night. Beyond that, the recaps of the events of the day Abby's mother died, clearly prove that it can't have been Jimmy. He was taking a hike in the woods with Abby, looking forward to camping with her, when Abby's mother was abducted and the dock blew up.
So, definitely not Jimmy. He's exactly the nice guy, he's portrayed to be and it shouldn't be any other way!

I think the killers are Jimmy and Henry, J.D found out and Henry had to kill him himself, even though he didn't want too.

I agree that Henry killed JD, at that point he still assumed JD as the killer and was in such a rage that he slashed him. its possible. But I don't see how Henry could be the killer, he simply just didn't have the opportunity. He is always with someone or somewhere we can keep tabs on him when murders occur, it just seems physically impossible for Henry to have committed the murders.
I do strongly think it is Jimmy, I haven't really heard any strong evidence against the fact other than the first murder- cousin Ben- occurred at the other end, but jimmy works at a marina, plenty of resources to get to the other side and kill him, then when someone suggested he check under the boat, he conveniently only pulled the rope. I also heard that he can't be the killer because Abby slept over the night some murders happened. I think we all have seen in tv world, people slipping in and out of bed/the house without anyone noticing. Oh and Jimmy would have known she was coming for the wedding, the entire island knew!
Jimmy makes the most sense, and Henry could be the accomplice letting him know where everyone is, and where Trish's dad was going to stand in the church. But i do think it will be too predictable from the very beginning for it to be Jimmy. If everyone suspects him, its probably not him.
As for the Wakefield/Abby's dad thing, what if Abby's dad (sheriff) killed Wakefield as soon as he showed up to claim his daughter, killed his wife and others in a rage or anger and pinned all the murders on him, then sent Abby away because it was hard to look at her as she is Wakefields daughter. that makes sense but him murdering everyone when she comes back, doesn't so much.
p.s Beth or Niki would be way too random, the INN keeper/wedding planner could have more of a story behind her that we don't know of and that is the reason why she is killing, that could tie everything together nicely.

I think there is more than one killer, that's also an option. Did you guys notice? Some murders are more wakefield style (nasty traps, harpoons, hanging on trees n' stuff), and other murders are not wakefield style (like the deputy guy that got shot with a shotgun by a misterious person when JD and Shane were in jail together.
I think it might be one of the characters killing people + some wakefield fanboy killing other people.

I think wakefield has another child, male, who is bumping everyone off simply because he's angry that they killed his father. And he hates Abby because she had a better life than he did growing up with a psycho like wakefield for a father.

did anyone think that chloe was being kinda weird in the latest episode? when she and cal had sex with the sheriff bleeding away in the other room...I think she might have been distracting Cal from the sheriff to allow him to escape...in which case, why would she want to help the sheriff escape?
Also, i think the actor playing henry did a fantastic job in the latest episode. I was watching him the whole time trying to get support for my theory that he's the killer...and the whole time i felt like JD's death had changed his demeanor. He seemed cold and calculating and his eyes were kinda glazed over, unlike before. Ofcourse, the explanation is most likely that he was grief stricken after his brother's death...but somehow i still think it just adds to my theory...

ok, when i was watching the show, I thought it was kind of obvious the whole time- THE SHERRIFF! Abby's dad. Alter ego/skizo/ just plain crazy. He could have framed Wakefield easily, and thus continue killing, making it look like a copycat.
He could have found out that Abby was Wakefield's kid, thus killing the mom, and why he sent Abby away.
I just thought it was kinda obvious. He lives alone, has a shrine to his work in the attic (hidden) (PLUS, whats in the drawer?), and he is never shown around the times of the murders.
