What’s a successful television show without a road trip episode? The July 16 episode of ‘Twisted’ put Jo, Danny and Lacey in a car together in order to find some answers — and what they found was completely unexpected! Were Regina and Danny’s dad linked?
The July 16 episode of Twisted turned out to be the least intense episode so far, but even so, there was plenty of drama and crazy revelations to be had. And oddly enough, the craziest revelation has to do with two dead people!
Jo Takes Off Without Telling Her Parents
Just like the ABC Family hashtag said, #UhOhJo! The once-goody-two-shoes Jo (Maddie Hasson) is becoming quite the rebel. This time, she left on a road trip with Danny (Avan Jogia) and Lacey (Kylie Bunbury) to solve the mystery behind the letter Lacey found on the July 9 episode — without telling her parents!
Although Jo’s mom trusted her and assumed she’s with Danny and Lacey, her dad was infuriated that Jo would take off with Danny without warning.
But really, Chief Masterson (Sam Robards) needs to cool his jets. Danny may not have the best reputation in the town, but it’s clear he wants to ensure that Jo is always safe and happy.
So now that Danny, Jo and Lacey were all packed in a car together, did this mean the trio are the Three Musketeers again?!
Danny Attempts To Play Peacemaker
No Three Musketeers excitement just yet! Jo and Lacey seemed to be bickering more than getting along in the car. And Danny, right in the middle of the bicker-fest, did what he could to repair their broken friendship.
In his cleverly tricky Danny way, he locked them out of the car until they apologized to each other for whatever it was that made them grow apart. But neither apology was sincere whatsoever.
Finally, Jo burst. She confessed that Lacey was the reason she wasn’t invited to a birthday party that everyone in their grade was invited to while Danny was away. Since then, she hasn’t been able to entirely forgive Lacey for how popular and perfect she has to be, which meant leaving Jo out of the picture.
Not gonna lie, it was one of the more well-acted scenes this show has seen yet. Twisted is doing a great job at balancing personal drama and murder-mystery drama!
After Jo revealed the truth behind the distance between her and Lacey, Jo and Danny had a conversation that made it clear all Danny wants is for the three of them to be best friends again. He told Jo what he told Lacey when they had their “sleepover,” which basically was that he’s not sure if he regrets killing his aunt, but he does care about the fact that doing so hurt Jo and Lacey.
Danny Gets Caught
After a failed first attempt to get up to the apartment that was on Regina’s mysterious letter, the girls were ready to go home once the security guard threatened to call the cops on them. But Danny was determined to find out who sent that letter one way or another.
The funny thing is, even though Danny was the one that manages to sneak up to the apartment, Jo and Lacey were the ones that figured out who the apartment belongs to.
Under the captivity of the apartment building security guard, Danny disappeared for quite some time after breaking in, and Jo and Lacey were starting to wonder if he was caught. While they were waiting to see if the security guard came back to the front desk while Danny was still gone, Jo spread her rebellious wings one step further and went onto the guard’s computer to find out exactly who lived in apartment 413.
Was Regina Involved With Danny’s Dad?
And for this week’s biggest Twisted twist: the apartment on the letter belonged to Vikram Desai, also known as DANNY’S DAD!
But how could Vikram send a letter to Regina when he has been dead for months? Oh, how we all wonder the same question. Including Jo and Lacey.
Upon finding out that crazy and confusing information, the two estranged best friends went on to save Danny from the evil apartment security guard, which involved a made up story about Danny’s longing to talk to a woman in the apartment building.
Once the three were together again in the car, Jo and Lacey didn’t bother to tell Danny what they found out about his dad being the owner of apartment 413, and who knows when they plan on doing so — or especially how he’ll take the news when they finally break it to him.
Rico Tattles On Karen
While all of this crazy crime solving was going on with Danny, Jo and Lacey, Rico (Ashton Moio) spent some time with good ole Chief Masterson.
At first, the Chief just wanted to use Rico to figure out where Jo was. Once that mystery was solved, Rico began to spill the beans about seeing Danny’s mom throwing the necklace into the lake, but realized tattling on Karen would end up hurting Jo in the end if Danny gets found out, and he couldn’t do that to her.
Eventually, though, Rico’s conscious took over and he told Chief Masterson about what he witnessed, which the Chief looked pretty pleased about knowing.
What’s going to happen with the case of Danny, Regina and the necklace now that Chief Masterson knows? But, more importantly, was Regina involved with Danny’s dad somehow? We hope to find out these answers soon!
