Ratner's trunk full of shampoo's (I used to work at a hotel).

When Veronica was asking the class about the plagerism... that was the funny at its best. haha.

overall, great episode. next week's looks even better.

Professor "Laskie" sure is a creep. I don't remember correctly, but didn't he turn out to be a jerkwad on the last show he was a prof on? (Kudos to anyone who can remember w/o IMDB'n it!).

Oh, and Keith...

Mediocre in my opinion.
My prediction is that Pez is gay.

What's with the Just Shoot me Reunion? George Segal next?

Easily the best episode of the season. If they'd have used Parker like this a few episodes before having her get raped I might care more about who did it.

But it was like....

Mac: my roommate is a ho who has a new guy over every night
Parker: LIKE OMG! THAT GUY IS TOTALLY HOT!!!!!!
Parker the next morning: OH NOES I DONE BEEN GOT RAPED!!!!!!
Parker three episodes later: I HATE YOU VERONICA I THINK YOU IS A STUPID RETARDED HEAD! HISSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While it's still feels a little "lite", it was a more entertaining episode for this season, so it's a step in the right direction as this mystery arc concludes in a few episodes. Now VM having a Weevil "pass" for 24 hours was a cheat to get VM access to all sorts of placed on campus. I guess you have to roll with it, or the show would really bog down in those details.

Parker's trashtalking during bowling, a minor turn-on.

Does Rob Thomas not like Brett Ratner? I just thought the choice of "Ratner" as the rat to be a little too coincidental, or maybe it's an in-joke.

Good for Wallace to take his lumps and go for what he wants out of life (at this point in his life).

Keith's near-death experience as the catalyst for the tryst was too convenient in terms of providing motivation for his otherwise out-of-character move on Harmony.

Does anyone know if Veronica Mars has been picked up for a full season yet, or is it still sitting at the originally ordered 13 episodes?

When Keith's car got hit, I first thought it was that woman's husband looking for payback. I wonder what My Veronica will say when she finds out her father is with a married woman.

I'm glad when we see a character, someone explains who it is. "The dean's wife?!?" and "The guy who's casino was robbed?", because I don't recognize faces well.

Or maybe it's a nod to Fast Times?

I loved this episode. One of my favorites since the first season.

First, I have to say Mac's MIA status was glaringly obvious tonight. Is she in the cast or not?

So, did Wallace get caught, or turn himself in? I'm not sure. V said "Evil wallace wouldn't have confessed and faced punishment." The line seems to indicate he turned himself in, but everything else points to him being caught, except the fact he wasn't expelled. I would assume that jocks just get special treatment, but then if that were the case I don't think his coach would be so content with him dropping the program for a semester.

I'm sure that vow of revenge by the newspaper editor won't ever be mentioned again.

sven, your right. 6 episodes in and they finally give Parker a little personality. Loved the trash talk.

Keith' storyline is...eh. I guess the car crash was suppose to make his choice a little more palatable, but I still don't buy it.

Regarding Weevil 'lending' his keys to V for 48 hours or whatever, I think we all know the first stop for V would be the hardware store to make copies. Heck, she probably has her own machine.

I don't recall them mentioning that Logan was retarded, so I have to wonder why in the world he thinks he can tell V that he has a secret alibi for Mercer and not realize she would eventually find out what he was up to.

...or just not into psycho-post-rape-victim-nymphomaniacs? If he were gay, he'd be ***-hagging it up with Veronica instead of hanging at the campus "beach" oggling bikini'd booty with Wallace.

I'll say - we never saw Maya and Elliot go at it like THAT!

Was the fact that he has the hots for VM not telegraphed strongly enough?

He was caught and confessed instead of denying it. He did not turn himself in.

If that's the case then for a school with "strict policy on plagiarism" they are pretty lenient on outright cheating.

On another subject, I didn't like how last week's rape case was resolved off screen. Rewatching this week's opening scene in the dean's office it was fairly obvious that Claire had some sort of explanation about the 'fake rape', but the dean wasn't listening, and I would have though after the sorority/pot episode Veronica had learned her lesson about just throwing some evidence out in the paper before getting the full story. At the very least Veronica would have confronted Claire and that's a scene we should have seen, or at least been given clues about (she confessed, she refused to talk about it, etc). Instead we have to assume that either V didn't learn her lesson and is incompetent as a journalist/criminologist, or Claire is just guilty of making the whole thing up.

Claire could have been a copycat rape victim (for what reason, who knows yet).

CW just ordered an additional three episodes bringing the season order total to 16 (according to Kristin @ eonline.com)... It's nice to see the CW giving the show a vote of confidence, but the three episode order over 9 is kinda getting me a little scared (ONE TREE HILL is in the same boat)...

I'm guessing that the CW is crapping themselves trying to find something that might work but won't find any answers until at least fall. They'll give VM the full order. Heck, I half expect them to have to keep the show around next year due to the number of holes they're going to have to fill. Their only solid keeps are likely Smallville, Supernatural, and ANTM.

They need to find a better spot for it to air and do some promo for it. You never see any Veronica Mars promos. Even promos on FX and Scifi would probably bring more viewers. Maybe a marathon. It is such a good show, and needs to stick around.

I agree

I thought it was a good episode. I liked what they did with Parker.

I think they need to give Wallace a roll like Mack. I really don't think he's interesting enough to deserve his own story.

I miss Mac as well.

I am surprised that Wallace was stupid enough to cheat. I thought that it was going to lead to a bigger story.

Logan needs to go away for good.

If this show lasts a couple of seasons, we'll end up seeing Lamb and Veronica together at some point. No doubt in my mind. They won't be the endgame, but it would happen.
