No, seriously, dude. That was some fucked-up shit. I'm looking at the "TV-14" advisory, and I'm just wondering if Rob Thomas will let his newborn daughter watch this show when she gets to that age. Or, you know, ever. Okay.
Previouslies: we see new footage of Veronica finding "SLUT" and "ABEL IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN HER" painted on her windshields after Shelley Pomroy's (yeah, apparently there's no "e") party. Other stuff happened, too.
We open in...Havana, Cuba. Those are some vintage cars, there. At an outdoor café, we pan over to see a male figure whose face is obscured by the paper he's reading, The Globe And Mail. ["Wooooooo! Canada!" -- Wing Chun] When he folds the paper down, we see that it's a beard-sporting Duncan. Interesting, considering he's about the only male character on the show I haven't suspected of having a beard at one point or another. Keith's voice rings out, "Buenos dias," and we see him wearing shades and a Panama hat and grinning like the Cheshire cat. Appropriate, since Duncan looks like he wishes Keith would disappear. Keith makes a Casablanca reference, and Duncan counters with a Wizard Of Oz allusion. And suddenly the beard makes more sense. Keith compliments Duncan on the job he did with the fake passport. Duncan averts Keith's gaze as he asks if Keith thinks he killed Lilly. Keith responds that he only knows it wasn't Abel Koontz. Jeez, no love from the writers, all of a sudden. What did I do? Duncan counters that he knows he didn't do it. Interesting revelation. It would be slightly more credible if he hadn't run off to a Communist country at the mere suggestion that he was involved, but perhaps he'd been meaning to get as much mileage as possible out of the concept of seeing how the other half lives.
Close-up on a badly-drawn skull, with fangs and blue flames around it. It's the design on what I think is a surfboard, owned by Dick Casablancas. Dick is telling Logan that the board is his "child." Well, it's certainly got a face only you could love, Dick. Logan snarks in a similar vein about the inadvisability of Dick's reproducing, and then literally skips off after Veronica. No, really, he needs to wear heavy boots or something, because he almost got airborne there. He'd be great at the broad jump, for more than one reason. Logan tries to get Veronica to talk to him, but she speeds away as Weevil appears and runs interference for her. Logan and Weevil get into it about Lilly, and Logan tells Weevil that Lilly never had any real interest in Weevil: "You're a pork rind. You're what people grab when they're stoned and they just want garbage." I would say that makes him a Cheeto, not that I have any idea what Logan's talking about or anything. Weevil twists the knife, asking what's worse -- the thought that Lilly had feelings for Weevil, or that she was using Weevil for sex. Well, assuming Weevil can be believed, which isn't necessarily the case, that answers the question of how far he and Lilly went. Also, this is the first time Logan and Weevil have acknowledged Weevil's involvement with Lilly to each other, but considering that I thought it was weird that Logan bought Weevil's explanation of the Lilly tattoo in the first place, I'm not exactly surprised. Logan tells Weevil to stay away from Veronica, and Weevil returns the sentiment. Considering that, at the moment, a well-placed breeze could blow either of their tongues into the other's mouth, I think staying away from Veronica might not be much of a problem for either of them. The gym teacher breaks them up, but whether his aversion is to violence or homoeroticism is unclear. But considering that he doesn't object to Logan pawing Weevil's jacket before he takes off, I'm going to do with the former.
