Who pushed Cassie off the roof in 'Tiny Pretty Things'?

[Warning: Major spoilers ahead]

As the star of Archer, Cassie was a huge threat to her fellow dancers, which means there are a lot of theories as to who could have pushed her off the roof to eliminate the competition. 

Throughout Season 1, many fans (including us) have theorized that Bette (Casimere Jollette) is most likely the culprit. Constantly feeling the pressure to compete with her older sister Delia (Tory Trowbridge) and to appease her "stage mom" mother, Bette is not above sabotaging her best friend or continuing to injure her body for the sake of dance.

In the season finale, it was revealed that Bette did not push Cassie off the roof, but in fact, her sister, Delia, did. The ballerina, who is also Ramon Costa's (Bayardo De Murguia) girlfriend, found out that Cassie was sleeping with the renowned teacher and went to confront her that night at the party. 

Delia accidentally pushed Cassie off the roof during their confrontation, but Bette's "perfect" sister is not blamed for the crime.

Instead, Bette takes the fall in the final episode, after Cassie suddenly awakens from her coma and blames her for the accident. Too drunk to remember what actually happened that night, Bette isn't sure that she wasn't the one who pushed Cassie. Additionally, Delia framed her younger sister to take the fall for the accident, which sets up for Season 2. Will the truth finally be revealed?
