Flashing Forward To “The End” of Season Two of Showtime’s Captivating Drama.
NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2015 – With the finale of season two of Showtime’s “The Affair” fast approaching, I admit to being fixated on who killed Scotty Lockhart.
Here are the characters I DON’T think did it:
- Bruce Butler (John Doman) Is Bruce so jealous of Noah’s success that he would plot a murder to frame Noah? Doubtful.
- Luisa Lèon (Catalina Sandino Moreno) Disappearing from a wedding to commit a murder is rare for a bride.
- Max Cadman (Josh Stamberg) I think his “last minute” testimony will be to help, not hurt Noah.
- Cherry Lockhart (Mare Winningham) She may be fed up with her family’s troubles, but not enough to kill her son.
- Alison Lockhart (Ruth Wilson) Alison is not a killer. Although, she may have accidentally hit Scotty while arguing with Noah. If Alison murdered Scotty, I will riot.
- Noah Solloway (Dominic West) He didn’t kill Scotty. He knows who did and is part of the cover up.
- Martin Solloway (Jake Siciliano) Eye for an eye. Cursed son for a cursed son? Martin killing Scotty would be an interesting plot twist, but one that would be a bit of a stretch.
- Cole Lockhart (Joshua Jackson) Despite his dark days, Cole is a good guy. Unless Scotty told him that he may be Joanie’s father or ruined his wedding, I don’t think Cole would risk everything in his life to kill his brother.
- Noah’s publicist Eden (Brooke Lyons) During Thanksgiving meal, Eden tells Noah to align his life with the story of “Descent.” Is she so wicked to set him up as a murderer? Murder, like screwing her clients isn’t her bag.
Here are characters I think DID it :
- Whitney Solloway (Julia Goldani) Here’s the theory: Whitney sees an invitation to Cole and Luisa’s wedding on Noah’s kitchen counter. She stalks Scotty at Cole’s wedding. After Scotty gets kicked out of Cole’s wedding, Whitney sees him and grabs the keys to her father’s car and chases after him. They have a fight. She runs him over. Maybe Scotty takes Joanie? (Oye! Another theory.)
- Oscar Hodges (Darren Goldstein) How many times did Oscar try to blackmail people? He lost the Lobster Roll to a “rival” family. He can’t be with Alison. He has nothing and nothing to lose. Maybe he planned to frame Noah for a murder, so he could blackmail him again, but then his plan fell through?
- Helen Solloway (Maura Tierney) Why is Helen paying for Noah’s attorney? Is it because she is so hopelessly in love with Noah or did she kill Scotty? Or perhaps Whitney confided in her about killing Scotty and mama wants to protect her cub?
- Margaret Butler (Kathleen Chalfant) Did Mama Butler go on a bender after she was turned down to host Cole’s wedding? Did she see Scotty and Whitney fighting and run him over? Was Scotty hurting Whitney? The same theory can be applied to Helen.
- Noah Solloway (Dominic West) Okay, maybe Noah really did kill Scotty and this is his descent.
I want to know what you think. What is your theory?
