07:32 pm - Rob Thomas Spy Pen Exclusive!
At the end of the VM finale in May, one question was burning the brains of millions of fans worldwide. No, not "Who's at the door?" No, not "On a scale of 7,000 to infinity, how much of a bitch is Lianne?" But:

"WHAT ABOUT THE FUCKING SPY PEN?!"

After discovering that many of my fellow flisters shared my consternation, I finally broke down and asked Rob myself:

Also, a number of us submitted the same question to the Kristin chat, but apparently she didn't ask it, and it's a question I've been wanting to have answered since the finale: What about Lilly's spy pen? What was in it? Why was it so important? I was so sure it was going to figure in the finale (in fact, I vowed to punch you (lightly!) if it didn't), and...it didn't. It was this great, ominous "Hot Dogs" cliffhanger, and then it was never mentioned again.

I wasn't sure if he would answer. BUT HE DID. To quote the man himself, you heard it here first.

It was simply going to be an obsessive, stalker-ish letter with some implied threat that would've made Weevil the likely suspect in Lilly's murder. He never actually carried out these threats, but there would've been something in the vein of "bashing your head in," that would've really stood out.

I wanted to reveal this at some point, but we just ran out of space in Season 1.


So, there you have it. Now we know, and we can stop tossing and turning at night.

If you're going to touch on it in the future, don't spoil me, but if it's just not as important as we thought it was, then...we'd like to stop thinking about it. Thanks.

And Lynn Echolls is dead.

Unless I decide she's not.

AHHH THE SPY PEN!!!!

I just watched 2x01.

It was good.

Is it just me, or has KB gotten cuter over the summer?

Thank you! I thought it would be funny to have a "that fucking spy pen" tag, even if it's only for two posts. I enjoy tag humor.

If that's true, I'm almost glad he didn't reveal it. There was enough suspicion of Weevil without anything that blatant.

And Lynn Echolls is not dead. Neither is Meg. *fingers in ears* Lalalalalalala!

Thanks for that update on the fucking spy pen. I had pretty much decided in my head that the explanation was what it was, but it's nice to have genuine confirmation from RT himself. :)

AHA! So Lynn's fate is still up for grabs! Fun!

And that fucking spy pen! Grrr. I'm mad that it was something as obvious as that. It was exactly what it appeared to be? No fun! Surely he could work on that thought and weave it into this year, right?

SPY PEN! So, did you punch him? Didja? Okay, I know technically, you can't punch him through the internet.

And if the letter somehow DID come out this season - well, that would be awesome. Although it wouldn't really provide much for the plot, since we already know Aaron did it.

There aren't enough bookseekers reaching across the desk and taking me in a womanly fashion.

OKay, since you found out the answer to that question you are now my hero again, poor Couch Baron. What I'm a female and I'm fickle.

Yeah, I was actually a little reluctant because until now, I really hadn't asked directly about anything show-related, I don't think. And I would be deathly afraid to actually e-mail him my show reactions. I think mostly I don't want to put him in a weird position where things I say could influence what he does on the show, you know? Not that I actually have any influence, but you know what I mean.

Alona Tal was on CSI tonight and as soon as I saw her my first thought was "Have to tell Sunil!"

Little red dress looks good on her.. Though I'm sure dirty burlap sack would also look completely hot.

The pen thing is a bit of a let down...

Someone gave me the heads-up last night, so I DVRed it tonight and forwarded to her scenes. Very nice red dress, you're right. And she was un-Meg-like, which was cool.
