Twisted Season 1 Review “Danny Indemnity”

The mystery of who killed Regina Crane is over now, and replacing it is the question of who exactly moved Vikram’s body from the woods to a staged car crash? And did that person do so in order to protect Danny and/or Jo, or did they have blackmail on their mind? It’s certainly a question with an endless array of answers that, in a town full of suspect characters, could literally lead anywhere. The problem with Twisted season 1b, however, is that the intrigue of the first half of the season was down to the apparent lack of ambiguity surrounding Danny’s status as a murderer, and that’s been lost.

Without it, the show almost feels like just another Pretty Little Liars imitator, and has no unique selling point left open to it after Dexter’s demise late last year. I was watching a show about a potential sociopath who definitely killed his aunt but may also have murdered his classmate, and now we’re following a conflicted angel who not only didn’t kill anyone, but is wracked with guilt over not pulling his father up from a cliff’s edge.
