The person who got shot in the finale remains unknown and fans are in a fury that the answer will not be revealed until January 6th, 2015!
Considering that we’ve seen the daughter vs. mother struggle going on between Candace and Hanna, who is to say that the same cannot be considered in terms of Amanda and Katheryn?
My mother and I came up with this theory a day or so after the Season 2 finale. That’s right folks! This blog is about the possibility of Katheryn Cryner shooting HER OWN DAUGHTER!!!
*I just started a new job with Liberty University Online as an Academic Adviser. I’m in training for 3 weeks before I take a final exam to see if I go the job or not. That is why I haven’t been able to pump one theory blog out after another. Got to pay the bills somehow right? Perhaps I’ll one day get paid for writing blogs like this for a living!*
For the most part, fans are speculating that Amanda actually shot herself in the head. Whether it was on purpose or by accident, the gun went off and the bullet struck Amanda.
Another popular theory is that Amanda encountered someone else in the Cryer Mansion!
How do I feel about that theory? Well…I’ll say that it is not impossible thanks to Jim!
Remember when he got that text message from Candace? He went outside to meet her in the front yard. When he got outside, he shut the front door of the house behind him and was waiting to see her. However, he was shocked to see a group of thugs coming out of nowhere to kidnap him!
He started running for the front door but was captured before he could go back in the house again. You are probably wondering why I believe he left the front door unlocked right? Well based on how he was running towards the door, I think it is safe to assume that he DID leave it unlocked. That is because we didn’t see a key in his hand and when he tried running, you could see his hand (from a distance) someone in a “I’m reaching for the doorknob” position because he was going to open it, close it and then lock it.
With that being said, Jim was kidnapped but the front door was open! Who went into the house that night and encountered Amanda? Folks, the list is a long one and I’ll tell you this much; that theory deserves its own blog!
Back to the subject of this blog, Katheryn KNEW that something wasn’t right about her daughter. Despite the doctor coming to the house for a visit with Amanda, he was fooled into thinking that there was nothing wrong with her at all.
Jim was relieved to hear this news and brushed it aside like nothing. Katheryn did not take the situation as lightly as her dimwitted husband.
Before she went outside to see the doctor as he was leaving, she was up in Amanda’s room searching for the gun that she knew was in there!
Amanda came in enraged that her mother was in her room and wanted to know what she was doing in her room. Katheryn played it off by saying that she was checking up behind Celine to make sure that she was doing her job. Amanda yelled at her to leave and she did…
When her mom was gone, Amanda reached behind her pillow and pulled out her gun!
Now here is what we need to remember about Katheryn’s knowledge about the gun;
Jeffery came over to Katheryn’s house to see Wyatt but before going to see the man that he loves, he warns her about Amanda’s threat about killing her entire family. Not only that, he told her that Amanda had a gun.
He did not go into full detail in terms of her pointing the gun at him and nearly killing him before he finally managed to get out of her apartment!
Jim just figured it was some kind of joke because he believed Amanda when she told him that it was just a toy. Katheryn on the other hand was not as naïve about it. My guess is that she knew Jeffery wouldn’t lie about something that serious.
With that being said, we know that Katheryn KNOWS Amanda has a gun. That explains why she was so desperate to find it in Amanda’s room before she came back after her visit with her doctor.
Now we get to the finale (that was lackluster in my opinion, but I’ll write a blog on “Checkmate” in the near future) and Amanda FINALLY learns the truth about her dad and Candace.
We don’t really see any Katheryn/Amanda screen time and this is a real shame especially after Amanda runs off in tears because her dad lied right in her face about sleeping with her best friend.
There are a couple of clues that hint at Katheryn actually shooting her daughter during her game of Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe;
- Look at how Katheryn is positioning herself while she is “sleeping” in bed
Doesn’t it look like she has one hand visible but her other hand under the sheets or pillow? If that is the case then it could mean that she has one hand holding a gun…
- Katheryn wasn’t asleep
For one, we know that she questioned why Jim was in her bed on this particular night (with her eyes closed). If you ask me, I think it is due to him being afraid since Quincy handed his butt to him earlier that evening!
When his phone went off, Katheryn (with her eyes closed) told him that he needed to control his whores! That was when Jim got out of bed, went outside and was kidnapped!
Now who is to say that while Amanda was running around with her gun, climbing into bed with Katheryn and very softly saying the words to Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe that Katheryn wasn’t awake?
It all boils down to Amanda pointing the gun at her head while running from room to room. We hear her psychotic laughter before the gun went off and that was the end of Season 2!
She was probably laughing right before the trigger was pulled and that was that. Katheryn may have heard the laughter because the gun was pointed at her head and before Amanda could kill her; Katheryn turned around with a gun of her own and shot Amanda!
I mean who is to say that Amanda’s laughter wasn’t a result of seeing her mom with a gun pointed at her?
Keep in mind that during Season 1, Jeffery would occasionally climb into bed with Wyatt. Towards the end of that season, we learn that Wyatt knew that Jeffery would do this because he was only pretending to be asleep!
Considering that Amanda climbed into Katheryn’s bed multiple times before the gun went off, I’m sure that Katheryn was able to feel the movement on the bed even though Amanda was trying to be as light as a feather and as quiet as a mouse while entering and existing the bed.
Right when Jeffery would try to reach and touch Wyatt, he would move around in bed which caused Jeffery to move away. Something tells me that the same kind of thing might have happened when Amanda went into Katheryn’s room one last time (if the flash from the window was indeed from Katheryn’s room).
Seriously, this is one topic that could be debated until January 6th! When it comes to the Cryer family, it seems that the main motto is; “Kill or be killed!” Jim sent Norman to prison so Wyatt would be free and that is just one example of how they’ll do whatever it takes to protect themselves or one of their own. When it comes down to it, I think that Katheryn would not hesitate to pull that trigger if she did indeed shot Amanda.
I’m not saying that she doesn’t care about Amanda, but she knows that there is something seriously wrong with her. Not only that, she knew that Jeffery was not lying about the threats made against the family and Amanda having a real gun.
What do you think did Katheryn shoot Amanda? Did she have a gun under her pillow? Was Katheryn asleep when Amanda came into her room or was she pretending to be asleep? Did Amanda shoot Katheryn?
Guess we’ll have to wait until 2015 to find out, but there is no harm in speculating right?
