hi, new to the SS but definitely not to Odyssey. When I first heard Out Of the Picture i came up with a theory that buck is actually mr Skint's biggest victim. my theory is the skint already knows all about bucks past and after failing to find this mystery painting he 'took on' buck so he could get the inheritance through him. and what better way to gain bucks trust and confidence then involve him in all his schemes and teach him all he knows. skint also hides/destroys any link of bucks past, possibly to take bucks inheritance without buck even knowing he has one. that's why he was annoyied when Katrina stated taking an interest in buck, she was a threat to all the work he had done. however, when buck chose Katrina over skint, skint was still slightly upset, as he may have actually enjoyed some of his times with buck. a few years later skint gets a letter from buck asking about his parents, instead of replying skint notes the address and sends the letter back and works out buck's living with the Meltsners.
ok this next bit contains spoilers for The long End part 1.
let me know how that sounds and I hope this doesn't give away too many spoilers

ok, I've just heard part 2 and i'm freaking out. my first fan theory I've posted and it's about 95% accurate. here's what I got right and wrong. be warned though, this does include MAJOR spoliers and plot details from part 2. so remember, you have been warned.
by the way, I think the writer's have read PennyBasett's fanfiction when writing this 3 parter. there's a few blank spaces she filled that have matched up with this episode. i.e Monty Whitaker has followed skint to odyssey so he can arrest him (yes, he's partly teamed up with Jason) as a side note, skint thinks the antique shop is just a 'front' for Jason's 'police work".
also, I defintenly think this is skint's last episode, as his actor is sounding a lot older and a bit frail, I think he might be struggling a tiny bit to get his lines out.

ok, so the final part was slightly intense.
And that's the long end. I love how Buck, Eugene, Katrina, Jason and Monty caught skint by conning him into thinking he got away with everything so easily, I also liked how skint genuinely cared about buck, but his greed would always come out in the end. this is definitely an episode to listen to and I think there's definitely potential for fanfiction here. PennyBassett, I think I can hear you getting some ideas. just thought I'd mention as this is a Meltsner family episode, but when writing this I had Eugene at the top of the page, and Katrina was there when I previewed it.
