The Pilot was very much an introductory episode, while this episode showed the aftermath of Regina’s murder, and delves a little into the past.
This episode basically revolved around Regina’s death. Jo’s dad, the Cop disapproved of Jo hanging out with Danny and tried to prevent her from doing so. Dani was also ostracized in this episode (what’s new?), and like before, he always had sassy comebacks.
As a side-plot, Lacey and her boyfriend attended an after-school session to grieve over Regina’s death, but the whole thing turned out to be a joke, and we learned a little bit more about Regina’s irrelevant past. I don’t think I like Lacey very much.
Prompted by Jo, Danny and his mom hosted a small dinner gathering at their house for Jo, her parents, and her friend Rico. Jo’s father’s attendance was unexpected as he wasn’t exactly invited.
The dinner was a disaster, and the whole time I wanted to punch Jo’s dad in the face. He was completely close-minded and didn’t want to consider the possibility than Danny didn’t kill Regina. He went snooping around in Danny’s room before he got caught by Danny.
Another character I don’t like very much is Karen. She went behind Danny’s back and shared information with Jo’s dad. I’m really annoyed because 1) He didn’t believe her. 2) If the police do investigate this, Danny will be further ostracized. Karen also has a creepy affair-thing going on with the principal of Danny’s school. I’m assuming she’s bribing him to protect Danny, but the scene was entirely creepy.
On the other hand, I adored Rico in this episode. He’s just so sweet, and absolutely hilarious in a dorky way.
There was a picture in Danny’s house of his family and his dead aunt who was wearing her necklace. When Danny noticed it, he quickly hid the picture. Jo’s mother noticed the missing picture at the end of the day and mentioned in to the Cop, who just become more suspicious. At the end of the episode, Danny burns a bunch of pictures of his aunt wearing the necklace. Hopefully, nothing gets traced back to his aunt’s death.
I’m dying to know more about the necklace. Danny’s aunt had it five years ago, and Regina had gotten it around six months ago. How did Regina get the necklace? What was its significance? Why did Danny kill his aunt? Who killed Regina? I don’t think it’s Danny because that would be way too obvious.
I’m dying to have my questions answered, and I can’t wait for the next episode!
I rate this episode 4/5 stars!
