Veronica Mars: I Know What You'll Do Next Summer
(S03E18) I love that although they've done away with the larger mysteries, it's nice that the writers put a little shout out here and there to us longtime fans. Sure they're not mystery related, but at least it's not all boy-girl relationship related.
Speaking of which, I thought I was OK with the whole Pizonica thing until the opening scene of this episode, with the two of them playing, what, armsies? Elbow-sies? It was just ... not right.
I have to admit that, at first, I was annoyed that the writers had to throw in a meaningful message into this episode, but they worked it into the story quite well in the end. We saw a bigger side to Wallace while seeing where the summer will be taking him. I'm sure he'll be coming back a changed man.
Random thought: What in the hell is this whole "CWhat's Hot" crap? For once I was actually praying for a real commercial to appear. Please lord don't let this be a sign of what's to come on this network.
The writers did an excellent job of finding the right match for Mac. Max has just the right amount of things wrong with him. He's not perfect and he'll need some work to stay with Mac long-term, but that's what makes him interesting.
For once I have to say good for Dick ... Casablancas, that is. The big surprise of the episode was the return of Dick's dad, which was that little shout-out I was talking about earlier. Dick stood up brilliantly to his swindling father, and in the end decides it's best not to hold a complete grudge by spending some final moments with his soon-to-be-incarcerated dad.
Another thing brought up in this episode was the mention of Kendall Casabancas's missing body. I've thought all along that she's not dead, and now I wonder if she'll suddenly make a reappearance.
Veronica's going to Langley Quantico for the summer, which paves the way nicely toward the possible retooling of the show mentioned previously. We'll know for sure on Thursday if VM makes the cut and, hopefully, what changes they'll make, if any. And did I mention yet how sick I am of seeing Piz's mopey face over Veronica's shoulder?
Next week's a big show. We learn the winner of the Sheriff election and could possibly be watching the series ... no, I won't say it. But I'll let you know Thursday morning, so check back then!
Quote of the episode:
Veronica: "A girl, a teenager and a private detective; I'm a triple threat. Barely fits on my business card."
