Looks like it’s time to start lurking on the Outer Banks subreddit more often, because apparently I’ve been missing out on some wild theories. Madelyn Cline delved into one such fan-made hypothesis during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and now it’s all I can think about. After discussing her upcoming role in the Knives Out sequel, Cline launched into an explanation about a theory that’s been floating around the interwebs since Outer Banks debuted last summer: that her character, Sarah Cameron, and JJ Maybank, portrayed by Rudy Pankow, are related. If you just audibly gasped, I did too at first, but it could very well check out. Let’s dive in, shall we?
As fans of the Netflix series know, neither JJ nor Sarah’s biological mother is in the picture, and there are no explicit mentions of their whereabouts or past, so viewers are left to assume they both died or left town . . . or, in this case, that they’re actually the same person. “The whole thing behind it is that JJ and Sarah’s mom was having an affair with Ward or Luke, and either because Ward was greedy or Luke has addiction issues, she just left,” Cline told Fallon. Yep, that means JJ and Sarah would technically be half-siblings. She added, “I feel like that would be very juicy to play out, to see JJ and Sarah’s reactions to being like, ‘Oh . . . oh!'” Very juicy indeed.
