Lots of questions are coming up after these past two episodes. I still have no idea who to suspect, since everyone is starting to look a little guilty to me.
Mark was arrested since he refused to account for where he was the night that Danny died, on top of all the lies he had been telling to the cops. Not only did he lie twice about his whereabouts, he lied about having fixed a pipe in the hut,or at least that’s what it looks like. He told the cops he had been there fixing a burst pipe, which is why his fingerprints are all over the sink, but the lady in the trailer said he had never come by to get the keys and that the pipes never burst there. So, why are his fingerprints there and why was Danny’s blood there? At this point it looks like that was the actual scene of the crime, but nothing is really concrete right now. They also found blood in his boat, and though he told them it was Danny’s from a few weeks before when they were fishing, it seems kind of suspicious to me. Finally Gemma (the owner of the hotel) came forward to say that she had been with Mark that night, that they had had an affair, so at this point he’s been let go. I still don’t know how much I trust him though. I don’t necessarily think he killed Danny, I just don’t know how much I like the guy. I wonder what will happen now that Beth saw him kissing Gemma.
Also, he had told the police that he had been with his friend Vince that night having drinks, and “possibly some food,” and texted Vince to have him cover up for him. Obviously because he didn’t want anyone to know about Gemma, but when they went to question Vince his mother told Ellie that he was home with her all night. When Renee went to question him for the paper they showed blood stains in the back of his van. So was he actually home? Did he have something to do with Danny’s death? In all honesty, I don’t think so, I think they’re just trying to make you question everyone, but who knows, right? It’s not like we have a lot of information to go on at this point.
The priest obviously is infatuated with Beth. From what it looks like he’s been in love with her for years. After she has a breakdown in the grocery store parking lot she confides in him that she’s pregnant and doesn’t know what to do about it.
There’s the psychic phone technician, Raymond, who has messages from Danny. He told Carver and Ellie to look for a boat, that he was on a boat when he died. And he followed Beth to tell her he has messages from him for her. He told her that Danny says he’s okay, and told her about the boat thing and asked her not to look for his killer because it was someone that he knew well and he doesn’t want her to be upset. Now, this guy could be totally legit, OR he could be telling her this to have her look into people close to them and to not look at him.
Then there’s the crazy lady in the trailer with the dog. Carver went to get the keys to the hut from her and they showed a skateboard in her closet. He didn’t see it, but we did. I’m assuming it’s Danny’s, but who knows, maybe the lady likes to grind some rails in her spare time, we don’t know what she does.
When the police were searching the Solano house they found a small bag of cocaine in Chloe’s room under the floor boards, and they found $500 cash taped underneath Danny’s bed. They also were able to get into Danny’s hard drive and pulled up his journal.
Tommy was questioned and admitted that he knew Mark had hit Danny a few times and that he had a temper, but he didn’t really give much more info than that. I’m betting that kid knows a lot more than he’s letting on. Something tells me that he’s got some information they might need, like who Danny had been hanging out with, or maybe even where that money had come from, or possibly who the back packer was that Jack said he saw him with. But in my opinion, I think maybe he made that guy up. That was a pretty detailed description of someone you saw for a minute 2 weeks ago, but who knows, maybe he’s real. I can’t help but to think that it’s someone close though, I can’t see it being an outsider. I think Danny maybe had some information on someone or saw something he shouldn’t have. The forensics team did find a phone number written on a piece of newspaper that had fallen into the line of his jacket, but we don’t know who’s phone number it is yet, since the episode ended just as it was about to pop up on the computer screen.
Next week it looks like they’re going after Chloe’s boyfriend about the cocaine, and questioning him about the night Danny died. Aside from that I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but I know we’re just going to end up with more questions after we watch it.
Here’s a preview for the fourth episode.
