Deception: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts


Remembering his reaction to the news of Vivian's death, I find it hard to believe Robert did it. It is probably more complicated. In any case, this is it.

I loved Julian proudly introducing Joanna to Will as his girlfriend and awkwardness that ensured. LOL! She and Julian were adorable making out at the end. They love each other. I am sure that they would work things out when the truth about her being a cop came out.

So in the end, Edward is his father's son. Where else would he go other than back home?

I cannot believe that Mia went back with that annoying guy. That Wyatt guy is a loon. Messing with Sophia is one thing, but who on earth would want to tangle with Robert with all that money and power?

If they are given another season then Robert would probably not turn out to be Vivian's killer unless by accident. They'd probably reveal that he was covering for someone. Had he answered the question about why he did it then I would believe they meant it. They just showed a bunch of scenes to make it seem that way but they can easily extend those scenes to give them all a different spin and/or sequence (specifically the one where Vivian asked to speak to him).

In the prior episode when Joanna's mother was lucid, it was implied that she killed Katherine. That scene with Julian implied otherwise and that's one of those instances where they can spin that scene differently by blaming it on her Alzheimer's or being more specific about how she was "dead" before she got in the car. It doesn't have to negate Robert being a monster because he did profit from her death.

Basically Robert as "the killer" allows them to keep the whole cast intact (minus Samantha) because Joanna will still need to stay there to gather evidence. They cleverly elevated Haverstock to AG as a reason to keep him around "running" the investigattion. Of course, none of it makes any jurisdictional or procedural sense. Vivian's murder is no federal case and it appears that Will forgot that he was trying to get the Bowers on federal issues (seucrites fraud or whatever). Instead Audrey Cruz ends up part of some corporate takeover scheme and the Russian mob is involved but it's still not clear who is behind them and why Edward is their target.

So Will can find Sam's killer that easily. They must have had something linking him to the shooting but stupidity/one-track writing prevails and he's idiotically placed in a line-up for Edward (who was not present at the crime scene). Then based on his unwillingness to identify the man, they let him go--even though something tangible had to have led them to him in the first place.

How does the all knowing Haverstock not know that "sparky" is a dirty cop. That was sort of funny in that he was quick to reveal that Joanna's sleeping with Julian to disqualify her when he's in Robert's pocket. They tried to make Robert seem all creepy with Joanna as if he knows and she's doomed.

Robert wouldn't be Wyatt's real problem....it would be Haverstock and Wyatt would be dead early into a second season, if they have one.

But Wyatt does not know about Haverstock, he does know about Robert's wealth and power so why on earth would he as a ex-con kidnap, Mia? It is pure crazy. The end for Wyatt taking this ridiculous course of action is death or prison.

You're right. He doesn't know about Haverstock but of course Haverstock knows about him. He's a two-bit criminal obsessed with Sophia so it's not as if anything but Robert's money would factor in to his thinking. Robert doesn't seem to be that great when it comes to non-blue collar crime otherwise Haverstock would have been dead.
