Veronica Mars: Plan B

Weevil: "An 09er could come in here with tea leaves and a Ouija board, and they'd send out a SWAT team."

Plan B was Weevil taking out Thumper by proxy by getting him in trouble with the Fitzpatricks.

Too bad, because Veronica finally got Luis the witness to finger Thumper. Not that Thumper is any loss to anyone. A couple of episodes ago, the big bus crash suspect was Terrence Cook, but it's come back to the Fitzpatricks again. Curly took out the bus to kill Cervando for the Fitzpatricks? Yeah, right.

On to the mayor's office. Loved Woody Goodman's reaction to discovering his photo op was actually Logan Echolls. I also loved Logan pretending that touching the Bible burned his hand. But then we moved on to ooky. Woody touching Logan's bicep and saying, "Bet you have some fun with the ladies, huh?" gave me the shudders. Yes, it could just be Woody's version of "man to man" and Logan isn't exactly a child, but it just had sick vibes.

The Sadie Hawkins spring fling was awash with mismatched couples.

— Logan and Gia were taking money at the door. (How did slacker Logan get roped into that? Part of his deputy mayor duties?) Gia was hitting on Logan in a great big way, and Logan was so uninterested that he was outright nasty, but in a subtle way. What was hilarious was that Gia was completely oblivious.

— Cassidy broke up with Mac because she asked him why he didn't want to have sex with her. They dated four months, and nothing. That's very interesting. What's going on? Is Cassidy gay?

— Jackie asked a teased, challenged guy named Charlie to the Sadie Hawkins dance. In the space of six episodes, Jackie has segued from cold bitch to object of pity to someone pretty cool. Wallace was dating Jane, but hot for Jackie. I can even sort of see that now.


— And finally, Veronica and Logan, sort of together again. After a good bit of interaction during the episode, including a stake-out with yet more banter, they danced together at the fling thing. Romantic slow dance. And they looked like they meant it, too, in spite of themselves.

Bits and pieces:

— Logan based his prize-winning essay on Easy Rider, a classic movie that he made both Veronica and Hannah watch.

— Again Woody was carrying on about incorporation. Again, Logan got right to the point by suggesting they erect a wall around the city as well.

— Logan has a sheet of paper with Woody Goodman's signature on it. Why?

— Woody said the stalker vid was made by his former gardener. Why do I not believe it? Of course, Keith still had a copy.

— The new, handicapped deputy commissioner (Logan) took Sheriff Lamb's parking space. :)

Quotes:

Veronica: "I need you to do something for me."
Logan: "Veronica, ask not what Logan can do for you, but what you can do for Logan."


Logan: "The whole dead Felix business has lost its intrigue for me. Once something stops being important to me, my memory gets a little fuzzy. Wait. Who are you?"

Woody: "Bet you have some fun with the ladies, huh?"
Logan: "The ones that survive."

Sheriff Lamb: "Still picking winners, huh, Veronica?"
Veronica: "I told you, when I start picking losers, it's all you."

Gia: "You, you run from the truth."
Logan: "Only when it's chasing me."
Gia: "You know what I think? I think you use sarcasm and anger as a way to keep people from getting too close to you."
Logan: "You know, I do. But it doesn't always work."

Mac: "Is it me?"
Cassidy: "No, it's the tater tots."

Logan: "When I dreamed of this moment, 'I've Had the Time of my Life' was always playing."

Three stars,

Logan and Veronica just belong together but it just seems like Veronica wants to change Logan. I love her, but she can´t accept who he is. Maybe I´m wrong but that how I feel.

Logan taking Woody Goodman's signature is explained. When Sheriff Lamb walks into his office to talk to Weevil and Veronica he's complaining about someone taking his car parking space, and a Deputy says that the mayor wrote over saying that deputy commissioner needed it. Logan used the signature to steal the space :P
