When it was introduced American Vandal was renewed for Season 2, some followers had been upset by feedback made by co-creator Tony Yacenda that the brand new season would not choose up with the occasions of Season 1, selecting as an alternative to showcase a brand new thriller. Audiences needed to know for certain who drew all of the penises on the vehicles, and now showrunner Dan Lagana has lastly confirmed the precise wrongdoer: Lagana said that Christa Carlyle was certainly behind the lewd graffiti, and he shared how loopy the employees acquired simply by followers asking:
It is so humorous how that drove us loopy. Folks had been like, ‘You are not gonna inform us who did it?’ We really feel like we advised you precisely who did it, after which simply had Peter (Tyler Alvarez) have an ethical compass on the finish, saying, ‘If I did not have arduous proof, me definitively saying who did it on digital camera in my doc would make me no higher than the varsity system — however I’ve my idea!’ It is like, that is his idea! That is who did it!
Dan Lagana’s massive divulge to the Vulture Fest crowd (by way of Vulture) is probably going not too surprising to many who watched American Vandal. As Lagana factors out, Peter Maldonado lays out his idea towards Christa fairly clearly, however stops in need of outright pinning it on her because of an absence of arduous proof. And since making unproven accusations like that towards folks on movie hits litigious territories, this was only a enjoyable method to keep away from immediately stating the reply.
After all, this resolution will not be as entertaining as a few of the fan theories that contain Ming Zhang and the janitor. Nonetheless, at the least this can formally shut the e book on the fictional thriller so many needed a definitive reply to. And possibly American Vandal‘s creators and producers can provide their ears a relaxation on the complaints.
Whereas the reply behind the dick doodler’s id might have been apparent to some, the solid of American Vandal appears to point many had been uncertain. Dylan Maxwell actor Jimmy Tatro said that he made just a few of his associates offended by not revealing the reply, though he did inform them in the event that they watched the present utterly they’d perceive who did it. To additional drive the ultimate nail within the coffin of this thriller: Tatro and the remainder of the panel’s solid and crew, all mentioned they had been 100% sure that Christa Carlyle is behind the dick drawings.
How Christa did it truly is fleshed out in American Vandal, however for many who have not watched and simply love a great spoiler, right here we go. Christa, with the assistance of her secret boyfriend, spray-painted the dicks (with ball hairs) in an effort to get again at Coach Rafferty. Christa then accessed the footage by way of the varsity surveillance and deleted it, and Alex Trimboli mistook her boyfriend Van for Dylan. Thus, what was as soon as merely a idea is now formally canon, and people who had been left wanting solutions can lastly proceed on with their lives.
