I’m talking briefly about developments in the latest Veronica Mars, so I suppose that I should post a spoiler alert (and yes, I really just wanted to test my new pulsing background color effect).
In this episode (which felt crammed with a mite too much plot, as if it had been intended as two episodes and one of those an awkward one built around the annual Rashamon party) it is established that Veronica, despite her assumptions and her year long darkness, was not a target of someone’s sexual attack. With all the badness going on, she was drugged accidentally and had sex consensually. This puts an odd kink in the VM chemistry, because suddenly she’s not a victim of the upper-classoids finding her own method of revenge. Will she be cleansed? Happy? No, can’t get happy. Even once the murder is solved, Lily will still be dead. Even with the parents back together (if they are), life has still taken a real drop. But this obviously wasn’t accidental; perhaps they felt that if their lading her with so many new darknesses, then needed her to shed this one.
Meanwhile: Duncan hasn’t taken his meds in a while. That’s got to be important.
