We finally saw how Stuart Chander got shot which rocked Pine Valley to it’s core last May. 5 months later, this murder mystery storyline which brought Kendall prison proxy, hidden rooms and Kendall being on the run is finally being “solved”. If you haven’t seen All My Children’s episode today, October 22nd, then do not read beyond this point…
A few weeks ago, I think it was during the awkward Dance-A-Thon episodes, there were scenes showing Adam getting flashback on the night Stuart got shot. I knew then that Adam is more involved than any twin brother should be in a murder case. When Emma fell from the stairs after seeing Adam (and running away from fighting adults, again), my suspicion got stronger. Adam has something to do with Stuart’s shooting. I don’t believe for a second that he’d shoot his beloved twin brother of course. Adam is evil to everyone but he’s got a soft spot for his twin brother. So how could Adam shoot his own brother unintentionally? It’s an easy explanation and slightly annoying yet sort of clever idea at the same time.
On that night, Adam Chandler had a one of those major “I am such an evil person, nobody loves me, not even my son can stand me” epiphany in his living room. Adam Chandler pretty much wanted to kill himself. I mean where else was he going to go? A Mea Culpa kind of attitude will never be accepted by Pine Valley residents.
So, Adam stood in front of his glass door, staring at himself in the mirror and shot the glass door. So in a way, he was watching himself shoot himself. Get it? Except the bullet ended up on Stuart. And that’s what poor Emma saw which Annie has been keeping all along. But why would Annie tell Ryan that Emma shot Stuart? And why would she marry Adam after knowing these? Well, maybe Annie wants Adam’s money. If she’s a Chandler and it comes out that Adam shot Stuart, he goes to jail. Annie becomes the instant wife-millionaire.
Now, this is my theory on a Thursday, where the episode showed Adam pointing at himself with a gun through the glass door. Maybe he meant to really shoot Stuart which I don’t believe for a second. The whole thing will be revealed on Friday I’m sure.
I think I’m right and I must say, what a brilliant ending. I wish it didn’t take 5 months to tell it though. Please let me know that you think.
