Chez Mars. Veronica comes out to the kitchen in a black dress with a black shawl around her shoulders. She looks okay, but what happened to strapless red satin? Keith tells Veronica she looks beautiful, and Veronica responds by playing the voicemail from the bus. You know, when a guy tells a woman she looks beautiful, he doesn't expect the response to remind him of death. It would have been a lot more appropriate if he had told her she looked fat. Once the call goes bad, Keith closes his eyes in agony and looks like he's going to be sick. Veronica starts to babble that this will prove that Driver Ed had nothing to do with the crash, but Keith cuts her off and says he's not willing to leverage the deaths of seven people just to win an election. Yeah, it's not really worth the bother. In this country, someone else will be sure to take care of that. Veronica points out that a lot of people in Neptune now think the crash is Keith's fault, but Keith says that if there was, in fact, an explosion (and they point out that the second noise is the bus hitting the guardrail), someone murdered those kids and Driver Ed, and "the guilty party" is still at large: "That evidence can't go public if we want this investigation to stay ahead of it." Veronica thinks the only way the killer will get caught is if Keith wins the election, since Lamb won't do anything about it.
