Veronica's on stage now, and Sophie babbles about Roger as Veronica tries to look interesting. She doesn't need to try, though, after Sophie changes tacks and says she's hearing from a young woman. "Lilly. Lilly?" Wallace, Jackie with him, looks up, concerned. Sophie: "She has a message for you. She says...you should have stayed away from her boyfriend." Veronica looks floored as Logan and Duncan observe. I should note that it doesn't seem particularly credible that Logan and Duncan would be watching this together if they're trying to get along. Nevertheless, they shift uncomfortably and wonder whether this means Veronica nailed Haaron at some point.
We're in the same spot, where the psychic tells everyone that Lilly has something else to say -- about infomercials. "You...don't need the...Mammomax? Veronica." Yes, I believe I addressed that earlier. Veronica's expression turns sardonic as she realizes that the psychic and Jackie set her up. Veronica, here's the moment where you bust out the blender. Just to clarify a plot point, I'm guessing that Jackie gave the psychic the five hundred bucks' worth of candles as payment for her complicity in the scheme. If not, Wallace is going to be choking on vanilla for a long time to come.
Veronica is making a CD recording of the blackmailing conversation when the phone rings. She answers, "Chesty LaRue." Heh. It's Duncan, and she finds out that Corny is DJing between the band's sets at the dance the next night. Wow, so she's going to bring Cook down just to get back at Jackie? I mean, the circumstances are slightly mitigating in that she'd also be bringing down Lamb, but...well, if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, it looks like Veronica's gunning for the Autobahn version. She labels the CD "Homecoming Request," and then someone knocks on her door. It's Wallace, who asks if she's okay. Veronica bites out that she's fine compared to how Jackie's going to be. Wallace asks what she means, since Jackie was worried for her. Ooh, that was a misstep, Jackie. Setting Veronica up is one thing, but not admitting it to Wallace makes it look like you think it's a huge deal. Veronica half-yells that Jackie was the only one who knew about the boob cream, and it's time for Wallace to pick a side. Wallace half-yells in turn that he's sure Jackie didn't do what Veronica thinks she did, but even if he's wrong, he wants her to let it go. Veronica says she can't do that. Wallace: "Well, why does it have to be about you all the time? Jackie's right about one thing: it's your world; I just live in it." So Wallace decided to pick the "I Have A Spine" side. I commend him on his choice. Wallace reiterates that whatever Veronica's planning, she shouldn't do it, and adds that in case she hasn't been paying attention, Wallace just learned that his whole life has been a lie. He tells her that she hasn't given him any time or sympathy, and leaves. Veronica looks chastened. I still love Veronica, but even those we love can frustrate us sometimes, so you'll allow me this comment to her: looks gooooooooood on you, hon.
