Veronica Mars

Heartbreaking. Absolutely heartbreaking episode that started with Veronica finding out she has the venereal disease that's not a flower and ended with her weeping openly in an elevator in front of the last person I'm sure she ever wanted to see her cry. Do the writers hate her? How much can one 18-year-old take? Just imagining what Veronica must have gone through during the long night of mulling over Logan's drunken speech and then screwing her courage to the sticking place to go to his door and tell him that she wanted him in her life. And the look of dawning understanding and, well, heartbreak, on Logan's face as he realized what he must have said to Veronica to make her come to his door and that with his drunken idiocy he'd crushed her was just . . . I couldn't even cry I was in such shock at the pain of that scene. After it was over I had to shake myself back to reality. These aren't real people, their pain is manufactured for the camera . . . but oh my god did it feel real.

Those last five minutes were so intense I can barely remember what happened in the rest of the episode. Something about Gia, and Lucky, and wasn't ex-Deputy Leo there for some reason?

Only two more episodes. Horror.

It was just horrible. The look on Logan's face when he realized that he had totally screwed up his chance to be with Veronica (because we all know that is what he wants) was just so sad.

I'm really having problems getting past it.

Oh my gosh, this episode was so good. I still think that there will be a happy resolution to their relationship.

What was up with the Wallace and Jackie love scene? That just seemed . . . gratuitous.

Also, where did Veronica get chlamydia? Does this mean that Duncan slept with Kendall? Or did he get it from Meg -- who got it from . . . Lucky? Or did Veronica sleep with Logan? I have no idea.

That chlamydia angle can't be a throw away.

At first I assumed it meant that we finally had an answer to whether or not Duncan slept with Kendall, but now I'm kind of thinking the ?-Meg-Duncan-Veronica line of transmission is more likely just because it seems like it would be a better fit into the big mysteries of this season (when is the Manning creepiness going to be show it's ugliness again???)

I don't think Logan is the source. Don't you think Veronica would have assumed it was him rather than Duncan if she thought Logan was really an option?

And I could not agree more with the Wallace and Jackie thing. It really bugged me. The only motivation I can come up with is that the writers were trying to lighten the mood a little bit between the two tremendously painful Logan/Veronica scenes, but I don't think it worked.

Have I mentioned two more episodes to go???

I think that there is going to be some whole child-molestation ring that will tie in the Manning weirdness (along with Lucky, and Veronica's chlamydia) and the Cassidy weirdness and possibly Woody and the bus crash.

I think that Veronica's not a flower probably came from Duncan through Meg as well. Maybe Meg got it from her dad?

And I also think that Beaver was sexually abused. Poor Beaver. I hope he and Mac can get back together.

What an episode! I just wanted to add how sad was the scene was between Leo and Veronica? -- I felt so badly for him, he's such a sweet, "mumbly" guy. I couldn't help wondering whether karma was kind of getting back at Veronica for being so insensitive in the later Logan scenes. Although, if that was the case, I think ol' karma over did it a bit.
