Rinse And Spit. Repeat. Oh, Seriously, Repeat.

The one thing that's softening it in Veronica's mind is that, it seems to me, she thinks the sex was motivated by real feelings she and Duncan had for each other. She said as much, and implied that she doesn't think it was rape. I still certainly think a legal case could be made against Duncan, or against certain other people at the party, if she wanted to go that route. But this seems to be the best scenario she could have hoped for, and I can understand her not wanting to pursue it. I don't think this is meant as a sweeping statement about rape and rape victims, although I can understand the opposing viewpoint. (In other words, don't email me.) And sure, it's incredibly squicky that Duncan appears to be her brother, but she's dealt with that before. I mean, it's true they never had intercourse while they were dating, but I'd imagine they got pretty close, so I think this resolution is relatively more benign for her than finding out, say, that Dick Casablancas was inside her. (Shudder.) But I don't think Veronica's psychologically done with the party at all. Nor, for that matter, is Duncan. It will just be interesting to see how it affects them down the road.

One other thing: I think that since the resolution of the rape storyline was so grey, the murder resolution with be far less complex. That's not to say it won't be twisty as hell, though. Speaking of which...

...Next week: Veronica solves Lilly's murder. She wields a gun, people. Wow.
