Veronica Mars Watch-Along Week 21

[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:
  • "Plan B"
  • "I Am God"
And for NEXT WEEK:
  • "Nevermind the Buttocks"
  • "Look Who's Stalking"

We really are very close to the finale now. (I feel like I say this every week but there are FOUR EPISODES left! So I'm telling the truth this time.)

This set of episodes is a little weird. Mostly because the first is more about revenge and the second focuses mostly on the bus crash. Which is the larger mystery of the season and is where the noir lives, but it was a little confusing.

Anyway, in the first episode, we find out all the pieces of the Felix murder. And then we watch Thumper get his.

It's kind of scary how Weevil just throws him to the Fitzpatricks. But considering how Thumper threw Weevil out of the gang entirely... no, Weevil basically murdered his ex-friend in a creepy YA revenge book kind of way.

Those Fitzpatricks really know how to scare a guy.

In episode two, Veronica spends a lot of time with the guidance counselor, talking about the bus crash, It's weird how easily she trusts this woman her dad used to date. But, I mean, better she open up to someone than no one at all (see season 1 in case you forgot what that looks like). I think the most important bit of information that we learn here is that whoever blew up the bus wasn't just trying to kill the bus driver, he/she was clearly trying to kill everyone on the bus. I don't know what that ringing phone at the end of the episode was about, though, but I'm sure Veronica can figure it out.

Oh, and also, Keith Mars and busting the kids who get extra time to study? Bad ass. Logan and Wallace intentionally tried to help Veronica's GPA, but Keith was the one to inadvertently do it.

This is a new section in the Watch-Along (but, considering Veronica Mars is a noir TV show, I'm kind of surprising myself right now). I've added this to talk a little bit about Woody Goodman. I don't know what's up with him or what he's so shifty about that stalker video. Clearly Keith knows something's up too, because he made a copy of said stalker video. But yeah. Something is up there and it keeps poking me.

Also, Woody Goodman, while a politician, has kind of rubbed me the wrong way for the last couple of episodes. It feels weird to be suspicious of Steve Guttenberg, but what can you do?

Then there's Cassidy. It's acceptable for a boy to not want to jump into a girl's pants, I think, but not the norm. And then there's this whole Phoenix Land Trust thing. I don't know. Something's up with this kid.

DID WE ALL SEE MY FAVORITE SHIP DANCING TOGETHER AT THE SADIE HAWKINS DANCE? DIIIIID WE? Ugh. Logan's face was perfection. This ship has life, I tell you. Even though Veronica is a psycho when it comes to Logan 75% of the time, this ship has LIFE.

Veronica: "I'm being haunted. And she's [Jennifer Love Hewitt] the Ghost Whisperer. *snapping* These are the jokes."

I love the jokes, Veronica, I do. 

Veronica: "I'm a little punchy; I haven't been sleeping."
Logan: "Thoughts of me? Hey, I get it. Um, sometimes I'm up all night just thinking about myself."

Oh Logan. I love you so much. 

Mr. Wu: "Okay, people! That's does it. I'm assigning you partners alphabetically. Dick, I think it's a bad idea for you and Mr. Echolls to be working together."
Dick: "So bad it's good?"
Mr. Wu: "No."


Dick: "God, I don't know how I'm gonna quit you."
[Dick puts his finger over Logan's lips.]
Dick: "Shhh. It's not me; it's Wu."

I really can't handle how funny I think this boy is.

Logan: "You don't like me much, do you?"
Wallace: "The last time we actually talked, you were bashing Veronica's headlights with a crowbar."
Logan: "Hm. Foreplay."

Please. Keep with the bonding, Wallace and Logan. PLEASE.

Wallace: "When I die, I want you to raise money for my spread in Vibe."
Veronica: "Oh, didn't I email you? You're never allowed to die."

I second this. But I also second the fact that none of my favorites in this show can die. So that covers Wallace, Veronica, Logan, Dick, Mac, Keither, Weevil... you get the idea.

Logan: "I could rub your head for luck."
Wallace: "You could try."


Wallace: "We magnify the drag, decrease the velocity, minimize the force, and decelerate--"
Logan: "Decelerate yourself. Four is officially your espresso limit."

I officially want you two to be friends forever.

This really is my favorite section. I don't even care if it's pointless.

  • Wallace: WALLACE WHY ARE YOU KISSING JACKIE WHEN YOU'RE WITH THAT OTHER GIRL? STOP THAT. In other news, I'm glad you're bonding with Logan/beginning to understand him. 
  • Logan: *sighs a million sighs* All of your snark is just deflection, isn't it? It's okay, I understand AND still love you. 
  • Weevil: Soooo now you're kind of a murderer. That's messed up. 
  • Dick: You're so funny and terrible all at the same time that every time I try to hate you I just can't. 
  • Cassidy: Something is going on here and I'm not sure I like it, mister...

Are you suspicious of Cassidy and Woody Goodman? What are your thoughts on the Logan/Wallace bromance? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. That dancing scene melts my heart. And hopefully Veronica's! I also really loved the Logan and Wallace project scenes. Logan is snarky 99% of the time, and Wallace still doesn't trust him, and it is all so good.

    Augh now I really want to rewatch along with you! I forget - is this your first time through the series?
