Veronica Mars Watch-Along Week 20

[Graphic designed by the lovely Judith of Paper Riot]
So, how does this work, super sleuths? Go check out the Watch-Along kick off post for the skinny. I'll give you a second just in case...

All caught up? Good.

In case you already know the basics and just forgot what episodes are up today, here's the list:
  • "The Quick and the Wed"
  • "The Rapes of Graff"
And for NEXT WEEK:
  • "Plan B"
  • "I Am God"
Season two's almost over. You ready for the push to the finale?

So first up we have the case of the missing bachelorette. Which is fun because I liked watching that girl stick it to that jerk she was about to marry and his family. And Vinnie. Silly Vinnie.

But what's more interesting is what goes on with the bus crash and Logan (two separate things, both super interesting). First we find out that Veronica's gone to Keith with the info about the C4 in Terrence's hangar and then Keith goes to Lamb. Then Lamb is a jerk about it. And then Keith pretty much deduces that the C4 couldn't belong to Terrence. Then Terrence gets shot breaking into Ms. Dumas's house. Pretty crazy series of events, huh?

Onto Logan - so he's messing around with Hannah in order to get her father to retract his false testimony (which is reprehensible, at best). He succeeds and the case against him is dropped (one can only hope for good this time, but you never know). Then the first episode bleeds into the second and we find out that Logan does break up with Hannah because Mr. Griffith makes him and then he goes back on that and Mr. Griffith send Hannah away. Normally I'd be all sad for Logan but he kind of did this to himself. Actions and consequences, my love. 

Aside from everything with Logan in the second episode, we have everything with Troy. He shows up at the same tour of Hearst Veronica and Wallace are attending. Troy claims he's changed and Veronica's obviously skeptical. Then it turns out he's accused of rape. So perhaps she's right. But she's not because he's innocent. We don't actually know who did it but we know the Pi Sigs are assholes. So that's nice. 

Oh, also, what's up with this escort and Cliff's stolen briefcase?

Aaron Echolls. What are you up to? What are you sending Kendall to do to Logan? Does this have something to do with Cliff's stolen briefcase? I'm very unclear on what's going on here, but I guess we'll have to wait and see?What I do know for sure is that these Tinseltown Diaries are absolutely repulsive and I hate gossip mag and all that stuff. I mean, yeah, the entire family is super screwed up, but please, why do we have to rehash it a million times? Especially when Logan's sitting there watching his mistakes and the sadness of his life on replay? (Why do you have to watch that crap, Dick? Why?)

This is honestly my go-to gif.
On the other hand, Hannah's parents are spot on with pulling Hannah away from Logan (I don't like bad things happening to my love, but I think he deserves it this time). And Veronica and Keith are on good terms. Which is nice. 


Dick: "Nuke the stadium? Damn now I totally wish I could write good."

I love you Dick. 

Wallace: "Man, can you believeit about Logan? That guy is like a cat."
Veronica: "You mean useless and selfish?"

Oooooh low blow, Veronica. Low blow. 

Yeah. I'm low on the snarky lines. Logan was doing a lot of pouting and very little quipping this past week. Those happen to be two of my most favorite Logan modes (the smolder is my other favorite), but only one of them is good for snarking.

Some smolder for good measure.
Hello again, my dears. 
  • Wallace: You're so cute with the college stuff. 
  • Dick: You're so precious. 
  • Cassidy: Clever, clever boy. What are you up to?
  • Logan: Oh, pet. I love you. But you did this one to yourself. I do wish Veronica would leave you alone already. It's like she thinks it's okay to be your conscience but I'm not sure where she got the right.
  • Troy: Go. Away. I don't even care if you're not a rapist. Just get out of here. 

Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat are in this one. So basically it's Veronica Mars meets Arrested Development. Although it's kind of weird to see Maeby like that.

Okay. Are you guys ready for the scary mystery stuff to get real? Because it's about that time again. But until we make it to the end, let's just talk about Logan and his sad puppy dog eyes. In the comments below, of course.

  • "Plan B"
  • "I Am God"
