Ultimately, Tripp decides to forge ahead with his plot against Kayla. “Tripp is tired of everything,” says Adams. “He kind of snaps. He doesn’t know what to, so he just decides to go for it. I mean, Why half way do it? Let’s just do it and get it done.”
The impetus behind it all is pure and simple for Tripp. “He’s heard so many stories, they’re all different, and none of them make sense,” points out Adams. “All he wants is the truth. He needs to know what really happened.”
In the meantime, the force driving him is doing right by his late mother.
“Tripp still feels like she was a good person in her own way,” says Adams. “He knows she was crazy, but she was still his mother and you’ve got to protect your own.”
