Well, it seems in character! Peter is big on the long game, as we know. I actually think the first, confused time that I watched, I assumed he had done it all on purpose, and it didn't really become clear to me until the second viewing that Peter himself didn't know how he was involved until the end of the season. Peter-as-criminal-mastermind does, as you say, make far more sense, which makes me wonder why they even tried to sell us this alternate version that makes basically no sense. I'd get it if they were trying to salvage Peter as a major character -- it'd be cool in that case, because you'd have people separating into the "it wasn't his fault! it was an accident!" camp and the "he is getting his inherent murdery nature all over everything! he's dangerous!" camp. But they were clearly going to burn Peter anyhow, so why not just make him the big bad?

I guess it seemed like a clever twist at the time, but I'm like you, I think it would've been simpler and more satisfying just to say that Peter had been pulling the strings from the beginning.
