Regina (Karynn Moore) is still a very dead girl, and Danny (Avan Jogia) is still a very suspicious figure in his hometown, but no one knows whodunnit! On the June 25 episode of Twisted, the pieces started coming together for several characters, but nothing was really resolved enough for the viewers to come to any conclusions. But hey, we’re only through with the third episode; there’s so much more drama to be had!
The Necklace Mystery Is Beginning To Come Together, For Some
In the first episode, the red and gold necklace was the only thing missing from the scene of Regina’s death, and although Danny denied killing her, he was found to be in possession of the necklace at the end of the hour. »

Presiding over Green Grove, Mayor Rollins is described as having a mega-watt smile and exuding political charm and charisma. Appearing in the series' fifth episode, on hand for the town's annual fall festival, viewers will learn that, despite his show of support for Police Chief Kyle Masterson's (Sam Robards, "Gossip Girl") investigation into the Crane murder (the show's central mystery), Mayor Rollins is not at all pleased with the progress being made.

You may know that I’m already something of a reluctant, if fairly enthusiastic, fan of ABC Family, and most of the shows they put out. If so, I don’t have to sell you on the two new series coming your way this summer (and only really want to sell you on one anyway).
Much as ABC Family may not quite be putting out the best shows on television, if you look at series that are predominantly geared toward a specific demographic… well, I think they might be actually. Younger audiences (and let’s face it, especially female audiences) are caught in a sort of black hole when it comes to television, and shows aimed at them today are either convinced that your brain doesn’t turn on until you’re 20 (actually, it switches off at about 11, and back on at some vague point), or have no real appeal »

"ABC Family is synonymous with groundbreaking storytelling and iconic characters," Michael Riley, president of ABC Family, said in a statement. "These new shows will bring the same depth, heart, close relationships and authenticity that our viewers have come to expect and, will pair nicely with our already established pop culture hits."
"Twisted," a one-hour mystery, follows a 16-year-old with a troubled past who reconnects with his two best friends from childhood. However, it's not all happy reunions as the young man becomes the prime suspect in a murder when a student is found dead in her home. Avan Jogia stars opposite Maddie Hasson, Kylie Bunbury, Kimberly Quinn, Sam Robards, Ashton Moio and Denise Richards.
