Apologies for not getting this post up yesterday. I have a good excuse! I got so consumed by revisions that I didn’t realize I’d used up all my time for the day until I looked at the clock and only had 10 minutes to straighten my hair and get dressed before heading into NYC to meet my friend for facials (we got free coupons at a wedding expo earlier this month) and dinner.
Will probably do another post later today to share the story of how gullible I am. AKA, I was punked. And good!
So what did you guys think of episode 3?
First, I must shout out one of my fave Veronica lines:
Keith: How was your date?
Veronica: Lousy conversation, but the sex was fantastic
Keith: That’s not funny
Veronica: I’m pretty sure it was.
I also love the scene on the bleachers where Duncan stands up and says, "Six guys. Bleachers. Jump in when you’re feeling this." Pause. Sings, "Summer loving, had me a blast…"
Love those lines! I have been watching for Logan’s pining looks like someone pointed out in the comments–wasn’t it episode 3 where Jason learned of Logan’s feelings?–and I definitely saw some of those long glances in this ep.
The interesting thing I found about this episode was that we didn’t receive any clues toward the season long mysteries. If you consider there’s three of them–Lilly’s murder, Veronica’s virginity, why Lianne Mars left–the only one we sort of got info about was Lianne, and that turned out to be a complete dead end with nothing new learned. Maybe the stuff with Duncan could be considered a clue (to the red herring). I always thought we got at least one clue per episode and the first half the season was devoted to DISPROVING Abel Koontz was the murder while the second have was devoted to finding the real murderer.
I did enjoy all the insight we got to Duncan’s life. I found myself liking Duncan a bit in this ep, or at least sympathizing with him. I never really liked him in previous viewings so I’m guessing something will change my mind again because I am huge Team Logan/Anti Duncan.
As far as the mystery of the week goes, I think this was definitely the best one so far. I like how Veronica had nothing to work with and still solved the case, though I don’t know why she didn’t think of grabbing the kid’s office file earlier. I remember this being the first episode that surprised me who the culprit (for lack of a better term) was. But that was before I learned to write mysteries. By season 2, I was rarely surprised.
So what did you think?
