We know the rumors are strong about Hugh being killed instead of John. The rumor is that Hugh is actually the dead person and John is the one in the burn unit,wrapped up on the ventilator. We also have a spoiler that "Hugh has a bad reaction to a visit from Spencer" next week.
Do we chalk this up to bad writing or are they actual clues?
Mike id'd a tattoo on the victim's right arm. John has tattoos on both arms, while Hugh's tattoo is on his left arm. Do you think DH remembered this? Also, isn't funny that Hugh didn't have tattoos at the pool with Kelly, but then sported them in the locker room with John. They made it perfectly clear to us that he had tattoos - even made him wear a sleevless tee!
The body was told to be "burned beyond recognition". However when they showed the victim's forearm next to the badge, his rolled up white shirt sleeve was in tact. Was his shirt fire retardant? Did they remove the shirt so Mike could see the tattoo? We know John does not wear white shirts. Hugh's shirt was white with thick black stripes.
They found the St. Jude medal in the victim's hand, again, in tact. I thought medal would melt at that temperature, especially such a small medal and chain - but it came out perfect.
As of right now, if the writers paid attention to their own detail, that should not have been Hugh dead at the scene, and in all probability, not John because of the shirt.
For the Spencer visits Hugh spoiler: it's very possible that Hugh is still alive at this point. His "bad reaction" may be that of death (if the rumors of him dying are true). does Spencer do him in for turning on him, or does Hugh die from his injuries, if he dies at all? (I'm still holding out hope until Amy contacts the publicist)
Don't kill Hugh!! Please!!
What do you think about this stuff?
