Look Who's Stalking
I know, it's been a few weeks since I posted about my love for Veronica Mars.
It's not that I haven't been watching and loving the past couple of episodes. It's just that they've been so dense that it's been hard to really know where to start. I will say this--while I, as a devoted, rabid fan of the show appreciate how densely layered and plotted this show is, I can see why it might work against recruiting new watchers to the Veronica Mars
This week is certainly no exception. Now, I pay attention to the show but there are times I feel like I need a score card to keep track of who is who and how they all inter-relate. I have a feeling I'm going to love catching all the stuff I missed on the inevitable season two DVD set as I get ready for season three.
But back to this week.
The simmer pot that is season two is coming to a boil. When prom is cancelled due to excessive drinking on the senior trip, Logan decides to hold his own alterna-prom. Jackie and Wallace are delighted to experience the right of high school passage while Mac is less than thrilled as she now has to go with Butters. (Have I mentioned that I love Mac? She is hilarious). During prom, Logan is a bit drunk and overwhelms Veronica with a confession of his feelings for her...leading to the scene we all knew was coming. Veronica leaves and goes back in the morning, only to find Kendall there and Logan admitting all of last night was a blur. I wonder if this will play out next week when Veronica takes the stand against Aaron Echols.
Meanwhile, Gia is being stalked--but we're not sure why. Even after we find out who it is, we're still not quite sure who is watching the Goodman family or why. We are teased but before Keith can find out, Lamb interferes (of course). In a show that usually doesn't have those moments that obvious scream foreshadowing, this one screamed "Foreshadowing!" I wonder if somehow Woody is connected to Terrance Cook's throwing the game. And was it interesting to see Woody start a scorched earth policy with incorporation failing? He seemed to want to deflect the heat away from himself by giving the press another focus. I wonder if he's doing this becuase he's in deep to the Fitzpatrick family or someone else somehow.
All I know is we've only got two episodes left and a lot of issues to be resolved. Just when I think I've got it figured out, I start thinking, "No, but what if..." and a whole new tangent crops up in my head.
Which may be just one of the many reasons I love this show....
