The twelfth and thirteenth episodes of Harper’s Island have already aired on some parts of the globe, a curse to those who haven’t seen them yet. Spoilers about the identity of the second killer have been plaguing the Internet, but who knows if they’re true. If there’s one thing we learned from this show, it’s not to trust anyone because they’re never what they seem.
Still, the speculations are rampant and very logical. Harper’s Island has also taught us to really think about the mystery, so here we go. Possible spoilers below! Read no further if you haven’t watched the latest episodes.
On “Gasp,” there are two deaths that will occur. Someone from Wikipedia has already stated Danny (Brandon Jay McLaren) as one of the casualties, and while it may not be the most reliable source, we all knew his death was coming. Wakefield (Callum Keith Rennie) supposedly got to him, leading to his demise.
Also, as we’ve seen on the preview clips, Trish (Katie Cassidy) comes face to face with Wakefield and eventually runs off to the woods. What’s more, she’s in her wedding dress. Given Cal and Chloe’s poetic death, this can only mean that Trish being dolled up like that is a sign that it’s her turn to meet her maker.
Incidentally, the title of the episode is the sound she makes after she was stabbed. Not by Wakefield, mind you. The summary for “Gasp” stated that someone was going to betray a person they love, so you can see where this is going. Henry (Christopher Gorham) killed Trish, and it’s soon revealed that he’s – drum roll please! – Wakefield’s son.
We still don’t know what Henry’s motive is, if he really is the other killer. Still, being Wakefield’s baby boy is one logical reason why he returned to Harper’s Island.
As for “Sigh,” death comes in threes. Co-executive producer Karim Zreik said one will be gory, another will be emotional, and the last will be really sad. Abby (Elaine Cassidy) will surely play a part in one of them, presumably Wakefield’s.
The other two who have to go are Sully (Matt Barr) and Henry. With Danny gone, Sully was obviously the next in line. As for the failed groom, it’s possible that the survivors just had to kill him knowing murder runs in his blood. That is, if he didn’t commit suicide.
Those who aren’t the lucky Canadian viewers can catch the finale of Harper’s Island this Saturday on CBS.
