TV show description:      
This mystery series revolves around charismatic 16-year-old Danny Desai (Avan Jogia). He killed his aunt at the age of 11 and was held in custody for five years. He returns to his hometown and tries to reconnect with his two female best friends from childhood — while facing the challenges of a community of judgmental peers.

A murder occurs the day after he returns so Danny becomes an immediate suspect. Realizing the town does not care about the truth and only wants to see him convicted, Danny becomes determined to clear his name. At the same time, he must keep another secret — the true reason he killed his aunt.

Jo Masterson (Madelaine Hasson) is an offbeat and tough yet vulnerable girl who was Danny’s childhood best friend. She became a social outcast after discovering the body of his slain aunt and becomes Danny’s biggest supporter. Her best friend is Rico (Ashton Moio), the resident class clown.

Tess Masterson (Kimberly Quinn) is Jo’s mother and she tries to give Danny the benefit of the doubt. Jo’s father, Kyle (Sam Robards), is the town sheriff. He believes Danny is a cold killer and wants his daughter to stay away from him.

Lacey Porter (Kylie Bunbury) was once Jo and Danny’s best friend. She’s beautiful and intelligent and has found the popularity that eluded Jo. Lacey appears to have a perfect life but is very guarded and secretly misses the closeness of her former friendships.

Karen Desai (Denise Richards) is Danny’s mother. She once ruled the town’s social scene, but now struggles to put on a brave face when her son returns.

Series Finale:     
Episode #19 — A Tale of Two Confessions
Kyle’s investigation culminates with a series of shocking and contradictory confessions and potentially deadly consequences. The complicated triangle between Jo, Danny and Charlie comes to a shocking head. Karen and Tess uncover more of Vikram’s secrets, including a piece of evidence that has major implications for Tess and the Masterson family. Meanwhile, Whitney’s mother Gretchen (Elaine Hendrix) shows up to bring her daughter back to the city, and her candor about Whitney’s past causes Lacey to question her friend. And Rico makes a major faux pas in his first meeting with Andie’s parents.
First aired: April 1, 2014.

    Bring back the old storyline, LOVE interests. It works better. This switching of love interest for Danny. Make him look like he does not know what wants. And anyway Danny and Lacey love interest brings spice to Twisted.

    Omg! Please don’t cancel this show. I look forward to this show. I am so tired of finding a show I like and then it is cancelled.

    Most likely not coming back for a second season. The ratings are not good due to the backlash the changes from part A and part B of the season has created. The writing is suspect and like any other product presented to consumers, they are not buying if it is of poor quality. This show would be great to dissect for critical analysis of the treatment of characters. Oh, the days of my Women’s Studies elective…

    I am a 43 year old and I love this show. Although it is based on different situations in teenaged kids lives I love the family concept. This is definitely a keeper. I’ve just recently started watching ABC Family on Netflix and I have to say I am very impressed with all of the shows that I have seen. I plan to continue watching this show and hopes that it will be around for many years to come. So many “twists” and turns. Thumbs up!!!!!!!!!
