It was basically hinted that the Benefactor is a character we already know about and the identity reveal would shock us. At first I thought it could be Gerard, the pieces fit, but he later seemed like too easy of a choice. What if the Benefactor is…………………..Danny. Think about it: he revealed that he knew about Ethan being a werewolf….and was unusually calm about it. He’s also a computer wiz with a small police record.(Think back to the Miguel scene from a couple seasons ago.) he would have the knowledge to devise the plan to pull off that clever heist at the Hale vault. Also, we still have yet to see him this season…….and Jeff said at the Comic Con Panel that we have not seen the last of Danny.
