Veronica goes to see Carrie, who's working the counter at what seems to be a dessert place. Hmm, I thought Carrie was an 09er. She asks if Carrie saw her, and Carrie, with a neutral-to-somewhat-bitchy smile, says she did. In flashback, a male figure is on top of Veronica. She takes off his wifebeater, and he removes her underwear. They are going at it hot and heavy. Carrie, with a big drink in her hand, disgustedly tells them to shut the door next time. Good thing Carrie had that drink, because anyone would need one to watch that scene, considering the participants. Oh, did I not mention who the guy was? Well, if it looks like a donut, and smells like a donut, know what it is? Well, it just might be incest. It's also definitely time to throw up again during the commercials. Three for three!
Boy, the milk of magnesia companies sure missed a golden opportunity to advertise during this episode.
Veronica, in tears, rings the Kanes' doorbell. Duncan answers, still scruffy. Veronica tells him some of what Carrie said, and asks for elaboration. Duncan dissembles, saying that the whole night is a blur to him, but Veronica cries as she tells him that Carrie said they were naked, and that he was on top of her: "You were the one that raped me!" Duncan asks if he's a murderer and a rapist now, and wonders why she's acting like she wasn't there. Veronica's shocked, but Duncan tells her that he thought they just had an unspoken rule that they weren't going to talk about it. He flashes back to walking in, looking decidedly blurry, and sitting on the bed and touching Veronica's face. Veronica wakes up, and dreamily says, "You're here." She sits up, and Duncan greets her tenderly. She tells him she misses him, and he falls on top of her. The one thing that bugs me here is that I'm guessing that they used protection, since they made such a big deal of showing us the condoms on the bed. But if they were both that hazy, would either of them have thought of it? I wonder if Duncan is being entirely truthful here, but perhaps even GHB can't completely erase the notion that while incest is gross, inbreeding is even worse.
Back in the present, Duncan asks if Veronica doesn't remember, and upon hearing that's the case, asks, "It's kind of a bad feeling, huh?" He says it with no compassion, however, which is chilling. Veronica continues to cry as she asks why he left, if it was so tender and loving. Duncan says that once he woke up and realized what he'd done, he had to get out of there. We see a flashback of shirtless Duncan getting out of bed as Veronica asks why sleeping with her was so bad, if it was consensual, as it seemed from his depiction of his point of view. Duncan: "'Cause you're MY SISTER! AND I KNEW IT! Even after my mother told me I tried to just cut you out of my life. I loved you! I tried not to, I TRIED not to, but it won't go away!" Veronica's sobbing by now, and Duncan's in tears as well. Wow, intense. It'd be nice to have a motherly figure around to make it all better. Or so you'd think, until Veronica turns to her left and sees that Mommie Sneerest has witnessed the whole scene. Geez, if they really are brother and sister, it's especially good that Veronica didn't get pregnant. Of course, the upside is that Mommie Sneerest would have had a heart attack. Or an attack of whatever it is passes for a heart. Point it, bitch would be dead. Veronica bails as Duncan collapses to the ground.
