Who Shoved Cassie Off the Roof?
Netflix’s Tiny Pretty Things ends its first season on a shocking note and reveals who shoved Cassie off the roof.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Season 1 of Tiny Pretty Things, now streaming on Netflix.
Netflix’s Tiny Pretty Things focuses on Chicago’s prestigious Archer School of Ballet, but rather than just diving into the dance-driven, sex-filled lives of these teenagers, there’s also a huge mystery at the center of Season 1. The series begins with Cassie, the school’s most prized asset, being shoved off the rooftop during a party by a mysterious hooded assailant, and as the 10 episodes unravel, almost everyone is suspected of the assault, which leaves Cassie in a coma.
Towards the end of the Tiny Pretty Things Season 1, Cassie awakens, and this creates a tension-ridden finale where we discover who tried to kill her and the ripple effect it’ll have on the establishment following the takedown of a couple of key members of the administration.Continue scrolling to keep reading

The Culprit Isn’t A Classmate
After she comes to, Cassie reveals Bette pushed her off the building, although Oren (Cassie’s ex) knows she didn’t do it. Along with Neveah and the rest of the girls, Bette tries hard to figure out who did it and why Cassie would lie. The big twist comes when June, someone who saw the would-be killer in the hallway, processes Delia’s movements and realizes it’s Bette’s older sister.
Bette, who was quite inebriated that night, starts to remember how Delia tucked her in, then left the room after a party. Cassie tried to follow her, but Delia met her at the bottom of the fire escape after committing the crime when she was trying to flee. Delia then fooled Cassie into thinking they just got back to the school after a night of heavy drinking, just so she could trick her sister into being her alibi.

Cassie Makes The Big Play
Delia attacked Cassie out of sheer jealousy, professionally and personally. She hated that the talented Cassie was sleeping with Ramon, a former star pupil who was choreographing globally now. Delia was sleeping with Ramon as well and wanted to make an international name for herself with him, as they were major hits on the professional circuit. But Ramon had an affair with Cassie in Paris, which he tried to cover up when he returned to teach.
Cassie left him flowers and a love note at the school for when semester restarted, which pushed Delia over the edge as her paranoia grew and she saw Cassie replacing her in a few months due to her prowess. She went to the roof and accosted Cassie, shoving her off in a rage, although she maintains it was accidental. Bette ends up taking the fall, though, as her mom, Katherine, knows Delia’s rising star would be hurt by the act.
Katherine manipulates Bette into thinking their power, influence and money would get her off as a minor, and she could then officially be accepted into the family by rebounding at the school when it blows over. As for why Cassie is willing to lie, she knows taking her closest rival in Beth out would be better for her progress right now, and also, it’d be a great way to watch Bette’s mom and sister squirm.

A New Dance of Death Begins
There are problems, however, when the Tiny Pretty Things Season 1 ends, because Monique, the headmistress, has been taken down by Neveah, June and various others for allowing rich toxic guys to sexually prey on ballerinas who volunteer at the Michi Beach Club. They’re benefactors, so Monique looks the other way, but the girls get a confession from a creep and play it during the final dance, exposing Monique to the cops.
With Monique set to fall, Katherine is eager to rise up, leaving a question as to whether she has a hand in a new attempted murder that closes out the season. The girls come into the gym to find Ramon with a knife in his chest, unconscious. He’s narrating, so he may be clinging to life like Cassie was as Season 1’s narrator. Chances are a resentful Delia could have attacked Ramon after Bette took the blame for Cassie.
Katherine has wanted to take over all season long, and this could find her protecting her daughters, getting back at Cassie and going after anyone loyal to Monique such as Caleb and Topher, men who hated Ramon too. In other words, Cassie’s revival is sparking a new war in the dance fraternity, and the next steps are already being written in blood.
Season 1 of Tiny Pretty Things, starring Brennan Clost, Barton Cowperthwaite, Lauren Holly, Kylie Jefferson and Casimere Jollette, is now streaming on Netflix.

I also write about music in terms of punk, indie, hardcore and emo because well, they rock! If you’re bored by now, then you also don’t want to hear that I write for ESPN on the PR side of things. And yes, I’ve written sports for them too! Not bad for someone from the Caribbean, eh? To top all this off, I’ve scribed short films and documentaries, conceptualizing stories and scripts from a human interest and social justice perspective. Business-wise, I make big cheddar (not really) as a copywriter and digital strategist working with some of the top brands in the Latin America region. In closing, let me remind you that the geek shall inherit the Earth. Oh, FYI, I’d love to write the Gargoyles movie for Disney. YOLO.
