  • He's lying. He doesnt make eye contact with the detective unless he's being asked sth, or telling stories on how he met Kevin or why they werent roommates, stuff not worth lying about. His voice is high pitched, the voice of someone about to crack but holding himself together, barely. When he said he microwaved pizza, watched scar face "long ass movie, fell asleep before the big gun scene" now people can't recall exactly what they were doing before they fell asleep, if he has seen the movie scar face before this night, then he would be confused, his mind would play games on him, did he or did he not see that scene? Liers also tend to add unnecessary details to the lie, as if to make it more buy-able. He smiled at the sound of Carly's name, he loved her then, and thought Kevin didnt deserve her, he did. And in this interview and the new one, he's trying to pin people.

  • He may be lying but I, myself, have fallen asleep while watching a movie for the second time and the next morning I've said "I fell asleep before the best part of the movie came on" or " I fell asleep before the big dance number came on". I think we need more evidence than that to point a finger at him. I'm leaning towards Rhonda having something to do with it. :-)

  • Richie says that Jason was jealous of Kevin, too.
