A Tale of Two Confessions...And Too Many Crimes (Recap + Broken Laws of Twisted 4x19)

**This entry contains relevant broken laws from episode 4x18 too**

This episode begins with a shirtless Charlie creepily doing pushups while staring at a picture of Jo. This is quickly interrupted when Kyle knocks on his door and informs him that they're going on a ride. Charlie agrees to go with him.

Meanwhile, Tess and Jo discuss Jo's shocking revelation that she was there when Danny killed Vikram. Tess supports Jo and agrees that it was self defense and not Danny's fault. This conversation is a result of Danny's confession in episode 1x18.


Legal Note 1: (from 1x18)

--Since Danny voluntarily confessed to Kyle, there is NOT a legal problem with the confession taking place before Danny had been read his rights. The 5th amendment Miranda rights apply to involuntary confessions.
-- Additionally, some states have laws requiring an adult (parent/guardian) to be present during the questioning of a minor. In New York, this law applies to minors UNDER the age of 16, and Danny is 16 years old.  
--I'm presuming that Kyle DID read Danny his 5th amendment rights before questioning him further. This means that Danny was informed that he had the right to remain silent and that he did not have to answer any questions without an attorney present. Considering that Danny was very cooperative in answering Kyle's questions, it appears that Danny voluntarily waived these rights. It actually does seem that Kyle DID do this by the books! 

Although Danny was cooperative in answering Kyle's questions, he did not answer all of them honestly, which presents a problem. This show wouldn't be "Twisted" if everything went smoothly!

A is For Answers.. And Most Of Them Are Illegal (broken laws+ recap of PLL Episode 4x24)

This episode begins with the PLLs sitting in a room still wondering where Alison is. We learn that the mysterious person who met the girls instead of Alison is Noel Kahn. He tells the girls to wait there, and the girls wonder if they made a mistake trusting him. The girls wonder if this is a prank, and Spencer makes sure to correct Hanna after Hanna says that they're just sitting there waiting like ducks. "It's lame geese, Hanna!" She also reminds her that geese honk; they don't quack, because that's obviously the most important piece of information right now. Thanks, Spencer!

Alison walks in when she hears the girls wondering why she would trust Noel Kahn. She says it's because Noel has secrets, too. Then Hanna gives Alison a warm greeting by telling her that she wants to hug her and slap her at the same time. Alison winds up getting hugs from everyone except Spencer. Spencer asks Ali why she wants her there if she's the one that she can't trust, and Alison says that she needs help from Spencer and all of the PLLs. Now that the police know that Alison isn't the one buried, she knows they will start looking for her. She explains that she can't come back to Rosewood until she finds out who "A" is. The girls fill Ali in on their theory that they think Mrs. DiLaurentis stole the game from Mona. Ali doesn't seem at all surprised that her friends suspect her mom. Ali tells the girls that she's ready to tell them everything about the night she disappeared, but if they don't find out who "A" is tonight, she'll have to disappear forever.

You're A Good Man, Charlie McBride.. Or At Least That's What You Claim (tv+broken law recap of Twisted episode 1x17)

**NOTE: Broken laws from episode 1x16 will be addressed in this post**

This episode begins with an intense scene between Charlie and Danny. Danny confronts Charlie about telling Jo about Danny talking about wanting to kill his dad when they were in juvie. Danny insists, angrily, that Charlie not talk to Jo about him ever again. I think I was even intimidated by Danny in this scene!

Next, Jack wakes up next to Karen; he spent the night! He gets dressed with the intent of going home to Whitney, but quickly discovers that Whitney is one step ahead of him, she's at Karen's place and she's just in time for breakfast! Whitney mentions that she's met some cool people including "Lacey, Danny's ex." This is the first Karen has heard about the breakup, so it's a bit awkward.

Karen and Danny talk privately, and Danny reveals that he told Lacey everything about what happened with Vikram. He also tells Karen that Jo and Lacey are both mad at him. He expresses concern about becoming similar to his father, but Karen says that's ridiculous. Whitney and Danny head to school next.
