12:15 am - Lookee Here, My Favorite Drink Tosser!
SEVEN WEEKS WHAT?

That rocked. They finally put together a mystery properly. It makes me happy. But one step at a time.

I loved that they finally did another in medias res opening. Yes, other shows have done it to death, but VM almost never breaks out of its narrative formula, and it makes me sad. So it was great to see something different. And then something familiar. Like MY SHOES. I SWEAR THOSE WERE TOTALLY MY SHOES. AND I THOUGHT THEY WEREN'T RAPIST SHOES.

Shortest teaser ever?

As many people predicted and desired, Logan broke up with Veronica this time around, and it was pretty much perfectly appropriate.

Keith investigates potential infidelity! Oh, joy. HAS HE NO HONOR? Also, Mindy O'Dell is still stupid hot.

I wonder if we'll see Random Plot Device Alum ever again. Okay, there was a lot of stuff in the episode, and I basically liked all of it and disliked none of it, for the most part, so let me just get to the really good stuff.

Like: MAC!! Oh, she's so adorable! I missed her. How great were she and Wallace being all supportive post-breakup? And...I like Piz, but Logan already used the "word" joke a long time ago, and he did it better. And with a longer A word, no less.

What made me really happy about this episode is that the main plot involved Veronica and her friends actively trying to stop someone from getting raped. That is just awesome. Wallace made his typical jokes about it, but he still gave up his good time at a party to help someone he doesn't even know. IT WARMS MY COCKLES. (And may I also say that Veronica wasn't bitchy at all to anyone in this episode? I've had my opinions colored by the fandom so I've become attuned to these things in order to stave off the inevitable complaints. (Okay, maybe Dick and Chip, but they deserved it. ("If it turns red, he's trying to rape you. If it doesn't, he still might be trying to rape you." Haaa.)))

I believe my favorite moment of the episode was the return of the guy from "Rapes of Graff": "Lookee here, my favorite drink tosser! I'm so glad you came to Hearst." I burst out laughing because I totally recognized him after he said it. Oh, I love this show.

The other thing that made me laugh was Mac's shirt. And Mac's totally awesome GHB check. And then Wallace and Piz's double-team dance-distraction GHB check. I loved it all!

So, as we're in the homestretch, let's get into gear. Since we saw the shoes in the teaser, I was looking at everyone's shoes. They looked like Moe's shoes, to me, especially because Moe was pretty much everyone's top suspect. And then Moe was all, "Yeah, I'm totally coming to the party and driving carts!" And then Moe was all, "She's always like that," with a sort of disdain...although, really, anyone would talk that way about Fern. And then Foyle came in to be a weird red herring, but he was wearing the wrong shoes.

Meanwhile, Dean O'Dell is totally going to shoot Mindy, Landry, or both. And it now occurs to me that we don't actually know whether he did or did not do any of those! But he most likely did not as we need them as suspects.

Shit, we've got a potential victim, and Logan is going to save the day! And I loved how that scene played out, how Veronica and Logan didn't have a huge fight but both realized that, for fuck's sake, sometimes your issues need to be set aside when you're trying to stop a crime from happening.

Shit, the actual victim was using a fake I.D., which should have been telegraphed by the fact that Veronica made everyone fake I.D.'s!

Shit, Club Flush is taped, and...seriously awesome. I know that this is probably the biggest hole because no one checked whether the show was aired live on the nights of the rapes, but I can easily let it slide because I'm not sure whether they'd even have records of that. It would depend on whether they regularly archived the show, I guess. But that's not the point. WAVE YOUR HAND, PEOPLE.

The point is that this is seriously awesome. The Club Flush clue was awesome to begin with because we heard it in the very first episode. But now it also makes sense that Mercer didn't immediately use it as his alibi to the police because he didn't want them digging too much into it. ALSO, he wanted to stay in jail to have suspicion thrown off him. But didn't I say from the second episode:
I do wonder if Rob will change his formula since we've gotten wise to it. It would be a nice twist now if the villain wasn't someone Veronica never suspected, ever. If she questions the rapist and writes him off, only to discover later that she had been right.
THANK YOU, ROB. (And that statement was written in response to MOE, who...THANK YOU, ROB.)

I'm not entirely sure how Veronica managed to beat Mercer to the girl's room, but it's pretty great that Mercer got to give his mwahaha speech to her without even intending to. And I love that since Mercer was always pretty sketchy, it's not like this comes totally out of left field. Parker recognized his perfume, for Christ's sake! But why are all of Logan's friends rapists? Seriously. Anyway, I was hoping for a little bit more in the way of motivation from Mercer, but I think dressing up as Alex from A Clockwork Orange is sign enough of...psychopathness. It seems like the hair thing is for his victims to remember him by (and vice versa). And while the text of his speech seems to equate to "I'm too lazy to try for sex, so I'll just take it," the subtext and tone speak to the misogyny that is the true motivation. I'm sure Rob's heard that rape isn't about the sex.

And then Veronica tasers him and STABS HIM WITH A UNICORN HORN HA HA HA HA. Finally, all the unicorn references have a POINT...ba dum bum.

Veronica runs to Fatboy Slim's "Right Here, Right Now," which works wonderfully for the scene because I agree with Mercer that techno is underappreciated.

And it turns out those were NOT, in fact, rapist shoes! It's only Moe! Whew. Sweet, innocent, geeky Moe.

And Veronica drinks the tea. And then she sees a photograph, and it is fabulously awesome. There are Moe and Mercer, in their prison garb. Thank God the previouslies didn't point a huge bunch of arrows to Moe's line about how the prison experiment changes you. Suddenly, the totally awkward dialogue about Horshack and Rafe retaining their prison experiment roles doesn't seem so useless. And...there were SO MANY CLUES, YOU GUYS. Moe drove Parker home, Moe has the keys to everyone's rooms, Moe likes Battlestar Galactica, etc. They planned this fucker from start to finish. The clues were expertly scattered throughout the nine episodes. (And I was right about Nancy faking her rape, which is why Mercer's Mexican alibi was crap. Apparently, she pointed Veronica to the ATM photo that exposed Claire, but maybe she didn't think her tip would go anywhere.)

*FLAILS*

THEY MADE A REAL MYSTERY. WITH REAL CLUES. AND REAL RED HERRINGS. AND TWISTS AND TURNS AND NON-CHEATING FAKEOUTS AND SUBTLE FORESHADOWING. I CAN OVERLOOK MINOR PLOT HOLES BECAUSE THEY PLANNED THIS MOTHERFUCKER OUT, BABY. IT'S LIKE ROB PRE-EMPTIVELY LEARNED FROM AVATAR.

Loved the GHB effects much better in this episode. And then Moe and Mercer are working together, and MOE KEPT THE HAIR EW, and Moe is calling Mercer "Sir!" and RAPE WHISTLE FOR THE WIN. Parker!! Parker saves the day!! And someone asks her if she's okay! People don't always suck!! Except for Lamb, who apparently SLEEPS THROUGH THE WHOLE THING.

And...PARKER SAVED VERONICA, YOU GUYS. She wasn't saved by one of her men this time! Keith came later, but that's not the point. The point is that Parker has come a long way in her rollercoaster of "How I feel about Veronica."

And Logan gets himself thrown in jail with Mercer and Moe. Oh man, what the hell is he going to do to them? (THAT's our obligatory psychotic jackass!)

As cheesy as it is, I have to love the classic "What are you doing here?" scene with the dean. I swear that's been used in, like, every mystery show/book/movie ever, and we finally got it!

So I have a sneaking suspicion as to what the next mystery is going to be. (And I really liked the dean, dammit!) sincerelysummer would like it known, for the record, that she think it's Tim Foyle, in order to keep his idol, Professor Landry, from being fired. I personally hope that Veronica scours those "perfect murder" papers.

Exclamation! I love this show.

Moe likes Battlestar Galactica

Wait, how was that a clue?

But yes, this episode was indeed the shit. Everyone was there! (Well, except Lamb and Cliff. But I can forgive that.) And the new mystery definitely calls for more Weevil, which can only be for the good.

Oh, show. I missed you.

You missed my favorite Mercer is a creepy mofo moment in the arc: he was ALEX from A Clockwork Orange! Ultra-violence, much?

Looking back now, or well, reading everything else so far because I'm tired, I'm liking the overall arc--which is good!

I loved every minute of the show last night. Loved it. Great analysis - everything worked. There may have been weak shows along the way but this was the most frakking, awesome tie up of any season mystery ever. Loved it. Loved all the things you mentioned.

Oh God - just when I resign myself to losing my show they go and blow me away with a kickass episode.

And the Dean- murdered! I loved Ed Begley in this role but he is indeed the perfect victim.

Logan, Veronica, Mac, (put me in the dying at her shirt corner - hee!)Wallace, Parker, Keith - all truly magnificent last night.

Wow, that was even more wrapped up than I'd realized (I somehow managed to miss that Moe and Mercer were in prison garb in the photo). I did love that Moe's compulsive tea offering played into the mystery.

As for loose ends...
- Why do we think Nancy faked her rape? Is that entirely based on the fact that Mercer was out of the country?
- Why was there no physical evidence? They were just very careful rapists?

But, yeah, great show.

I said this on Twop but man I LOVE that Mercer's only provokation for rape was power. That's it. He's got no other reason. Nobody abused him, he didn't grow up poor, he didn't witness some tragic event that made him snap. He's just a pig on a power trip which is 90% of what makes someone a rapist. He's utterly unsympathetic and I love that.

I'd first like to make the comment that I was spoiled about the breakup before I watched the episode because my mom decided to be a moron. I had a friend over to watch The Godfather Part II and was taping the episode to watch it right after... and my mom calls.
"Amy? Honey? Is this Veronica Mars a repeat?"
"Mom... I'm not watching it right now, I have a friend over and we're watching something else."
"No! But, didn't this happen before? He breaks up with her, they're following the dean's wife..."
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MOM!!!!!! I didn't want to know that?!?!"
"But it happened before!"
*headsmack*
I think I seriously screeched. I avoid spoilers obsessively, I don't even watch previouslies, only to find that my MOM can't tell when it's a rerun or not. Gah...


But OMG wonderful episode. Hee... rapist shoes. =D

It just occurred to me that one of my friends dressed up as Alex for Halloween over a year ago... I wonder if I should be worried. =P

I loved LOVED the ending to this one. It was the nicest wrap-up since the first season. And the connection to the prison experiment was SO PERFECT. IT ALL MAKES SENSE. Mercer is too easy and Moe was too hard, but a tag team was brilliant. And oh so creepy. Oh man, poor Veronica. Hasn't she had enough GHB for one lifetime?

And... I'm VERY sad about Dean O'Dell. I really, really liked him.

I'm also sad that there's no more VM for a while. =*(

Personally, I think it's Tim Foyle who killed the dean for an entirely different reason. He had reason to believe that Veronica might tell her PI father about Mindy cheating on O'Dell with Landry. I think it might be revealed that Lucky Tim believes that Landry's betrayal of him goes further than garden variety use and toss away. Maybe Landry was one of the men Bonnie slept with. Anyway, I think he used Cyrus as his weapon in a double-murder, then killed Cyrus to cover his tracks in what would appear to be murder-suicide.

You know, there had to be a bigger reason for Tim to call Veronica in to speak with him than a mere taunt about putting her paper on the internet. The entire point of the scene seemed to be a) Veronica sees that Bonnie is Tim's girlfriend; and b) Veronica sees Pi Sigs circled on the rape board. Are the circled boys the ones Bonnie slept with? I have a feeling we'll find out. And Tim's comment about being with other women when Bonnie was with other men was way cryptic. I hope it wasn't a mere red herring to make Veronica think he might be the rapist.

As for the rest of the episode, I loved it. I was also checking out everyone's shoes. And I got a kick out of "Right Here, Right Now" because for a while there it was a movie/TV cliche for "something very dramatic is happening." I love techno, too, but that kind of aural shorthand is exactly the reason it's not just underappreciated, but reviled by some people.

Mac, her t-shirt, and her casual, disconnected GHB test were awesome. Piz's Elvis dance was even more awesome. The fact that the Pi Sigs hired a Neil Diamond tribute band for their party might be the most awesome thing they've ever done and actually make me almost like them a little.

I love that Parker didn't go to the party and that she was the one to save Veronica. She's a great foil for Veronica, actually. Veronica's first instinct about the rape whistle is "would anyone come running." Parker's first instinct is apparently, "I would." I love that she didn't back down when she confronted Mercer in the hallway. But is Bennett Hall co-ed by wing or by floor? It was only men in the hallway with Parker, did she hear the whistle on a different floor and come running? I think opening the window may have been what ultimately saved Veronica.

I'm kind of glad Veronica and Logan broke up and it happened exactly that way. It shows growth on both their parts.

Benes is co-ed by floor and I would think based on room location, that Parker and Mac are directly below Moe's room or damn close to it. Enough to be able to hear your stupid upstairs neighbors, I know that much :) Hee. Someone pointed out in the episode thread that they had just heard their upstairs neighbor open the refrigerator, which is why they believed it.

Hee. I absolutely loved everything about this episode but Veronica falling back on her skills and making everyone beautiful fake IDs as 'thank you gifts'? Perfect! Not to mention, I loved the 'Great! My favorite drink tosser' guy :) I'm seriously hoping Lamb lets Logan slide on the assault we know will happen since Lamb has mentioned that he has a disdain for rapists (YAY to Lamb having a disdain for the right people for once!). I think Lamb will buy any excuse not to charge Logan! *crosses fingers* Ohh, maybe Veronica gets Logan out of jail by saying she did all that damage to Mercer when he attacked her? So what if everyone else knows that Mercer's face looks a look prettier when he went into that cell!

Aaaugh, LJ mangled my first attempt at a comment.

Anyway. As I said to saikou_dani in the middle of the episode (post-Mercer, pre-Moe): "My internal monologue is in ALL CAPSLOCK RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!"

I don't really have anything to add to this because you've basically said it all for me, I think. Except: Oh! So I was totally waiting for Moe to be involved after that oh-so-cazh "The RAs have keys to all the rooms" moment a few eps back. And Danielle kept saying, "Aw, Moe likes Veronica... and he's kinda cute..." and I was just shaking my head and waiting for it. And then he leaves her in the room and we hear him LOCK THE DOOR AND MY THOUGHTS WENT INTO ALL CAPSLOCK AGAIN I'M SORRY I CAN'T CONTROL IT.

Also, did I just imagine this, or did Mercer actually call Moe "prisoner" while they were struggling with Veronica? Because: yet more awesome.

Anyone know if they'll be rerunning this block of eps during the hiatus? (Probably, right?) Awesome Boss has finally caught up with seasons 1 and 2.

THAT's our obligatory psychotic jackass!

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, huh? And now I'm imagining subsequent scenes with "That's Amore" as the soundtrack. Hee.

Oh man, oh man, oh man. Internal monologue: "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I'm not really buying the Mercer/Moe prisoner stuff. One weekend experiment is suppose to lock these boys into guard/prisoner relationship forever? The use of "prisoner" seemed a bit much. Twisted boys working together? ok. Relationship cemented by one weekend experiment? I don't know...

I think it's tim foyle, in order TO get Prof. Landry fired. He set Landry up to get exposed by Veronica, and I'm not entirely sure he loves being Landry's pet anymore. Plan a perfect murder, after all - frame someone else.

So, this is way too dorky for me to take to the TWOP forums, which is why I love your LJ, so. . .feel free to roll your eyes + ignore me: I CRIED when Logan broke up with V. Not got teary-eyed. Like, full on cried. And I knew it was inevitable, and I wanted it to happen, but it shook me. I keep thinking about last year, with the whole Duncan fiasco, where I kept thinking, "This relationship is so fucked up on so many levels, why aren't either of them acknowledging it? Why isn't ANYONE IN V's LIFE acknowledging it? Am I on crazy pills?" And then this break up, which tore every one of my heartstrings out, because these two people love each other soooo much, and Logan has worked so hard, and V. . .wanted it to work so badly but could not get her head out of her ass, and I remembered why I watch this show. Because I love these characters, in a way I have loved very few TV characters. Rickie Vasquez. Buffy even when I hated her. I've been way more excited about Heroes this season, but I don't love any of them. I wouldn't sob for any of them.I kind of gave uplast year, because I couldn't be emotionally invested in Duncan and Veronica. She shut off everything she'd become to be with him, to go back to some magical pre-Lilly's death time when she was ot hard-edged, or curious, or cynical. She was an 18 year old having a 15-year-old's romance, and it was creepy.

With Logan she actually was herself, and trusted that THAT'S who he loved, and it didn't work because they both have insane baggage but they weren't faking it. And it was SO well-written and Jason Dohring rocked it SO hard and I was like, well shit. That's legitimately tragic. That's some storytelling.

And also the rest of the ep was insane, and I love Mac so much (although I've been watching Big Love and wow is that a switch), and I caught the Moe thing the instant V drank the tea, but was so excited that they broke the formula I totally didn't care. And basically I'm a giddy schoolgirl about the whole thing. Yay Parker! Yay Unicorns!

Wouldn't the drink tosser guy who was checking IDs know that Veronica was underage since he had met her at the RoG party? If he didn't care that she was underage (which I assume he didn't because frat boys don't), why even bother checking the IDs? Why would Veronica even bother making them? That part bugged me.

I think I'm the only person who did not enjoy the use of "Right Here, Right Now". Mainly because, as someone who's been a fan of most forms of electronic music pretty much since birth, it's the kind of song that someone who has no idea about "techno" would use. It's not a bad song, but it's been overused (see Coppola, Sofia). I normally stand by a lot of Rob's music choices, but Fatboy Slim? NOT TECHNO. I also strongly doubt someone who has an electronica radio show would refer to it as such (or even use the word "techno", which has fallen out of use since the early 90s, except by people who don't really listen to electronic music). So that was pretty much my main problem with an otherwise stellar episode. [/electro-snob rant over]

Oh, good, I'm not the only one who thought that! I mean, I do like Fatboy Slim, and this specific song, but he couldn't have played something newer to begin with? (Come to think of it, it kind of seems weird to discuss the musical choices of a sociopathic serial rapist, but still.)

Like MY SHOES. I SWEAR THOSE WERE TOTALLY MY SHOES. AND I THOUGHT THEY WEREN'T RAPIST SHOES.
No, no, no. You're just the guy who helps set up the rapes, not the rapist himself.

(And may I also say that Veronica wasn't bitchy at all to anyone in this episode?
She really wasn't. Dick and Chip don't count.

It seems like the hair thing is for his victims to remember him by (and vice versa)
Yup. I think that Mercer is just a sociopath. Which I'm okay with.

Apparently, she pointed Veronica to the ATM photo that exposed Claire, but maybe she didn't think her tip would go anywhere.
Or not all the Lillith House girls were in on all of the faked rapes. They themselves might not have known which ones were real.

Parker!! Parker saves the day!! And someone asks her if she's okay!
Yeah, that was fabulous. I loved that in the end, it was so easy to prevent - it just took a few people to pay attention.
