Cut to Veronica entering Lamb's office to find the sheriff enjoying the company of Celeste and Vinnie Vanlowe. I wonder what they were talking about. It would have been conversationally convenient if they were all in the same book club, but I somehow suspect that's not the case. Vinnie sunnily greets Veronica, who claims that, other than the air conditioning, this is how she pictured hell. I'd like Dick to show up right now to remind Veronica that there's always a lower place. He'd be perfect to deliver that reminder, in more ways than one. Celeste bites out that Veronica knows where Duncan is, and that if Veronica doesn't cooperate, Celeste wants Veronica prosecuted for the jewelry theft. Veronica asks Vinnie what he's doing there, and Lamb cuts in that he's Celeste's guest: "Mrs. Kane, word of advice. Private investigators just make the work of law-enforcement officers more difficult." Hee. He counsels her to save her money, since he'll find Duncan and bring him in safely. Celeste gets up to leave, and Veronica notes that it must be weird for her to hope Lamb is competent. It's at this point that I wonder if Veronica was really feeling air conditioning, or if it was merely the crosscurrents of frost coming out of everyone's mouths. Celeste imperiously instructs Lamb to keep her posted, and then snits to Veronica that she finds comfort in the fact that the child isn't Veronica's. Veronica: "Let's hope she's got your smile." Celeste leaves, and Vinnie follows, but not before giving Veronica the "Private Eyes Are Watching You" visual and gesturing for her to call him. Hee.
