Twisted Episode 7 Recap: The Other D-Word
Black Girls' Night Out: Lacey Porter
As I've mentioned before, we need to be real. This show is on ABC Family, and they're only willing to take things so far.
Or so I thought.
Sure, Twisted can't be a full-on bloody, dirty, sexy, gritty affair, but it is about the potential sociopathy of its leading character and thus it can be fairly perturbing at times.
And though I was fairly certain there Absolutely No Way Danny Desai could be a sociopath because his show is on ABC Family, this was the first episode which finally made me wonder if he very well might be.
First, I need to go ahead and knock out Avan Jogia's shirtless scene because I know some folks have been waiting for it.
*nods* That takes care of that.
Now moving on...viewers have noticed the strange random smirks Danny has after something, usually bad, happens to someone else. At first these smirks were ambiguous; when Lacey's boyfriend Archie, captain of the soccer team, loses the respect of the teammates, Danny smirks. Well, sure; Archie is a douche and he deserves pain.
But then there's the scene where Danny starts making out with Lacey on top of his Aunt Tara's grave. You remember his aunt, right? The one he allegedly strangled with a jump rope?
Um, what the hell was that?
The end of this scene right here starts to call into question everything Danny says or does (for me), and Avan continues to manipulate the audience with intriguing ambiguity. I've actually reached a point where I'm not so sure about this character anymore. I get that his main purpose is to be dreamy and sensual, but I'm growing genuinely curious as to where the writers are going with him.
So for all of you who are following Twisted, what did you think about this week's episode? Where you predict they'll take this character? Remember to take into account this Sneak Peek of Episode 8:
