A reader brought up an intriguing idea.
I've never liked the theory that Maura hit Petrit Vasi with her car the night she had the breakdown at work. I just don't see how she could have snuck out and back so quickly, without being seen.
But what if it was a friend who borrowed her car? And that friend hit Vasi.
Was that why they were traveling in tandem into New Hampshire? Was the plan to get rid of or damage Maura's car, and return to Amherst together? Did the accident then change their plan?
It would explain a lot of things, not to mention the amount of alcohol and the interest in lodgings with two bedrooms.
What do you think?
