Why don't we sort through all the possible suspects, shall we?
Based on logic, it has to be someone who knew they'd be in the trophy room. His scheme with Alexis failed, even more so when Cristal walked in on them, so I think it was a matter of improvisation.
Someone here mentioned that he could inherit everything if he was the only surviving Carrington, but I think the main reason was to cover up his involvement.
A new character, who could that be? Dominique? Another murderous psycho-bitch? I think that's too much.
The only other one I can think of is Cesil.
Between leaving the stable house and showing up in the mansion I'd say Anders also had the opportunity.
The butler did it!
Cesil's a pretty likely suspect, though.
It's obvious it is Hank.
I don't know where the new orthograph "Cesil" comes from but on Netflix's ending credits it is still Cecil.
Speaking of him, Cecil could have been a good suspect some weeks ago but still the retooling of mid-season he has disappeared into thin air and I'm not sure we are going to see him again.
Oh, is it? Whoops, my mistake.
Darn it, I wanted to include him but forgot!
Drew Ramos. It's always Drew Ramos.
No problem. I've seen several people spelling the name this way here but even on IMDB it is spelled Cecil : https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0434444/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t13
The name change was posted on this forum with big fanfare, I never had any reason to suspect that it wasn't true.
If Liam turns out to be Adam after all (yeah I know we're getting tired of subject) and he has this Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde syndrome and hates the Carringtons for giving up the search for Adam, then maybe...but it would be a stretch, to say the least.
Michael could have decided to kill Blake and then changed his mind when he realized that Fallon was in the same room. Again, it would be extremely difficult to present this twist in a convincing way.
I know who did it... (Don´t ask, don´t tell...)
He just hates Steven and Trampy Ho. He'd stop at nothing to destroy their day of bliss!
I'm afraid Ted is just like Cecil : a character whose development was stopped during the retooling. I don't think he is going to return.
It would be a good twist if it was Jeff. But unless the writers/producers want the character out, I can't see that happening.
Ted's father was a very angry man and he (also) threatened to expose the Carrington's wrongdoings but arson and murder is something else. Maybe Ted died that day and he lost his mind...although I could see him as a potential kidnapper - his son died and he wants to replace him with Steven's child.
Or maybe Senator Daniels because he found that Steven had impregnated his wife (eventhough Melissa thinks he doesn't know). Hm, also not a very strong motive for such a terrible crime.
Any other person who was wronged by the Carringtons?
Flashback to Knots Landing:
Policeman: "Do you know anyone who might want to kill you?"
Greg Sumner: "Do you have a phone book? We can start with the A's..."
If I were writing it, I'd have Jeff do it, but no one ever figuring it out. It would reinforce that although he was lied to about his parentage, he's not the one to jump on a high horse about being the 'wronged party'.
Anders would be my choice, because everybody likes him so much. Not that it should be revealed right away, they could wait until season 3. He still needs time to deal with the issue that is Kirby.
The butler strikes again!
He's channeling the lovelorn Zack of The Colbys, channeling Sabella. "Goodbye?" "I know I said goodbye to you Fallon, but I can't just yet. I'll truly mean it next time after next."
He's also channeling the Zach of Dynasty who might have seen the face of the woman he was said to have murdered.
Hank is number 1 on my list.
He went off to that car and tried to start it to get away. Claudia helped him. He said it was an emergency. He wanted to get away and get the money once they all died.
Then I'd say Kirby, Cesil...But Hank is probably the one I'd say started it it most of all. It wasn't Claudia, Cristal, Blake, Alexis, Steven, Fallon, Sam, Anders. I doubt it was Jeff or Monica. If anyone from that family, Cesil...But he wasn't around for a while. I doubt it was him.
Hank for the one who started it.
