'Twisted Recap: The Murder Weapon Is Found and Danny's Dad Makes a Surprise Appearance

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(ABC Family)Spoiler alert: This entire Twisted recap is tainted by the sound of my own screams having watched the summer finale of Pretty Little Liars. From the most exciting show on TV, we go to perhaps, one of the  more unexceptional. Today, Lacey is left to contend with the fallout from everyone seeing her bounce up and down upon the naked genital parts of one Danny "Murderer" Desai. And it ain't pretty. The fallout, I mean. I can't speak as to the beauty of Danny's genitals, and for that...Read Full Story

(This is what stankface looks like. Photo: ABC Family)After finding out that Danny had possession of Regina's necklace, something he kept from his friends, Lacey and Jo decide to friend-break-up with him. This causes Danny to rest his head in hands and dream of Lacey's girl parts. At school, Rico confronts his mathlete nerd friend Doug about sending him the sex tape of Lacey and Danny. Doug remains cryptic, refusing to finger who gave him the video. Danny trundles away from being broken up...Read Full Story

'Twisted' Recap: The One Where Danny Is Almost Sent To Arizona

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(Kiss him.)(Photo: ABCFamily)It's time to recap ABCFamily's slowest paced whodunnit, everyone! Ah, but that Twisted could ever manage to pass muster and live up to its name. This week, Karen is being held by Sheriff Masterson after confessing to offing Regina to spare her son from any further harrassment. It's a piss-poor confession since, you know, Karen didn't do it. But she's desperate enough after last week's terrible party that she sees this as a chance to give Danny a normal teenaged...Read Full Story

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(shirtless Danny = OKAY BY ME)If it’s Tuesday, it’s time for Twisted, and if it’s Twisted, it’s apparently DANNY FULL-ON MAKING OUT WITH LACY! #SecretRomance, you guys. Danny wants to tell Jo that he and Lacey are touching each others’ parts. Lacey is against that. Lacey is also urging Danny to talk to his mom about his dad’s death. Lacey continues to be a jerk about being seen with Danny because he is a murderer so it is uncool for them to be seen together. They make plans for a secret date...Read Full Story

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(ABC Family)Guess who’s back in his soccer socks and being all go team go? It’s Danny “The Mane” Desai, all making friends and influencing people on the field. Everyone except for Lacey’s sweaty monster boyfriend, who is sweaty-monster furious at Danny for being smarmy with him and shady with his lady. His snideness is more than Lacey can take and she snaps and kills him with a jump rope. I’m kidding, I’m kidding, she just asks her boyfriend to stop being a bucket of tools.Although tensions...Read Full Story

'Twisted' Recap: Rico Maybe Sort Of Betrays Everyone?

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(the air crackles with boredom and sometimes - rarely - tension) This week on Twisted, Danny, Danny’s hair, Jo, and Lacey are meeting up in their onetime childhood fort to theorize about the bribe Lacey found sent to Regina, and then to bicker, because Jo and Lacey — halfway through the season — have had no breakthroughs in their friendship. Yawn. Boo. Hiss. This upsets Danny. That said, his hair seems unfazed and remains glorious. Back at home, he’s rocking an up-do and all business. He...Read Full Story

'Twisted' Recap: The One Where Everything Gets Sexy

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(god is vegan.)In keeping with spirit of all ABC Family programs, tonight’s episode of Twisted begins with a dead mean girl making jokes about being able to eat whatever she wanted now that she is dead, possibly at the hands of one Danny “Sassy Locks” Desai. Because Lacey is a teen, she is not at her most self-aware, as such such she needs a ghost to remind her that she is still harboring doubts about Danny’s involvement in Regina’s murder, and the mysterious disappearance of the necklace...Read Full Story

'Twisted' Recap: The One Where Everyone Is Terrible At Being Friends

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(beware moms bearing cupcakes)This week’s episode of Twisted was all about friendship. The friendships between snooty wine-drinking slut-moms, between soccer playing frenemies, between Jo, the homeliest girl in all of town, and Lacey, a princess from heaven, and between Rizzo the Rat and new best friend, Danny, a known murderer. Danny has joined the soccer team which is good because now we get to see his calves highlighted by his soccer socks and also his hair in a petite bun. It’s not so...Read Full Story

'Twisted' Season 1, Episode 3 Recap: Rico Is Accidentally Sherlock Holmes

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(ABC Family)This week’s episode of Twisted made three things very, very, very clear. Firstly, I want to marry Rico and have eight hundred of his furry babies even if it means listening to Gonzo’s cheesy one-liners until my dying day. Secondly, I am pretty sure Archie wants to marry Danny, and with Avan Jogia’s raven mane growing more touchable by the episode who can blame him? Thirdly, and now this is me putting on my serious TV Critic Hat (It’s a crown-fedora-top-hat-hybrid, for those...Read Full Story

'Twisted' Recap: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? (Answer: Danny's Hair)

By Rebecca Jane Stokes on
(I'm sorry, were you talking? I couldn't hear you OVER MY PASSION FOR THIS YOUTH.)Twisted, as we learned last week, is the story of a murderous boy named Danny. This murderous boy, in turn, possesses hair so beautiful, many would murder for it. To be clear, that is the plot of the show, not a verse to Ironic that maybe Alanis Morissette thought was way, way too specific to include in the song at the last second.This week on Twisted, we picked up where we left off. Danny, if you’ll remember...Read Full Story
