a secret agreement or plot — especially to do something illegal or harmful
  • Some theorists (mostly crime writers) also claim that Sue Snell was an active part of this conspiracy.
  • This theory hypothesizes that Ross and Christine Hargensen (see pp. 1-l8) were at the center of a loose conspiracy to get Carrie White to the Spring Ball, and, once there, complete her humiliation.
  • If one chooses to believe the hearsay evidence of Nolan's immediate circle of friends (and to be brutally frank, they do not seem intelligent enough to lie convincingly), then Nolan took this part of the conspiracy entirely out of Christine Hargensen's hands and acted on his own initiative ... He didn't talk when he drove; he liked to drive.
  • A. Well, if you're suggesting some kind of conspiracy, it's absurd because Carrie was dying when I found her.
