Trigger warning: this episode and those for the foreseeable future has frank discussion of rape.
We have a couple of light-touch mysteries this week on Veronica Mars, which seems to be a bit of foreshadowing for how season three will play out. Veronica is back to her old tricks of making enemies, Weevil struggles to find work as an ex-con, Logan & Veronica negotiate an adult relationship, and there's a truly unfortunate plot regarding rape and feminism. Oh yeah, and Keith is there. Remember when he was important to the plot?
We say goodbye to UPN and hello to the newborn CW network for Veronica Mars season 3! Alli and Mary grab a beer and talk our brand new characters (Buffy's Riley-equivalent Piz & poor peppy Parker), our old characters' new attitudes (puppy dog Logan and bratty Veronica), and dropped plotlines galore (bye Kendall!). Pour one out for Veronica's poor LeBaron, she is no more. Cheers!
It's Veronica Mars season two finale time here at Must Be Tuesday! We celebrate Mary's correct guess at the season big bad: Beaver "My Name is Cassidy" Casablancas. Lots of bad dudes get their comeuppance, with Duncan taking out Aaron Echolls, Keith arresting Woody, and Cassidy, well, taking out himself. It's non-stop movement as Veronica figures out the mystery about a third of the way in and it just ramps up from there. Weevil gets screwed, Wallace and Jackie exist, and Logan gets to play the hero. Cheers!
We have special guest Sarah on this week to help us talk about the penultimate episode of season two: Happy Go Lucky. We chat what a bummer it was that Veronica Mars and Buffy were underrated, Alli rants about Star Trek (sorry!) and what makes a person a Logan fan. Then we get into the show proper, where we discuss Aaron Echolls going free, Woody Goodman being a huge creepazoid and a fun Weevil/Mac/Beav school side-plot.
