VMVO awaits us in the Neptune High hallway as Veronica steels herself for yet another awkward conversation is a season full of them: "After a week of forced smiles and the occasional 'hey,' it's time for business as usual. Ain't epic love grand?" So Logan. He's standing at his locker, as he so often does, as Veronica asks him whether he's been to any good murder trials lately. For the grand guignol that is their relationship, it's not a bad line. Logan compliments her "gripping" testimony. Veronica wants to ask him something. Knowing he's got the stage all to himself, Logan does the Catalano-lean against the locker door, and quips that it's so rare that Veronica comes at him with a random weird-ass question. She asks him whether he'd ever heard Lucky talk about Woody, or about being a bat boy for the Sharks. Logan, looking off to the side for some odd (Method?) reason, says Lucky never talked about the Sharks. Logan does, however, recall a "weird, semi-baseball-related incident" from the summertime, and hello blue-tinted flashback! I was hoping we'd run into each other! Logan enters the boys' locker room to find Lucky without shoes or shirt (let's assume he also went sans-"service," lest that particular adage be proven untrue). He is, however, wearing a catcher's mask, and a big ol' "boo!" to the writers for making the recapper to go to the pitcher/catcher place. My mind is flipping you all the bird. As if this whole scene wasn't already weird enough, Lucky is also pouring bleach onto his feet and babbling to Logan (though you'd figure he'd be just as likely to be saying this to the walls) that "they're doin' something to me. Or else I'm poisoning myself." Logan's like, "Yeeeeah. We need a keg delivered to the beach." Oh, Logan, again with the alcohol? Between dead Felix and last week's alterna-prom debacle, maybe a switch to Diet Coke wouldn't be so awful. ["But it looks like I was right about Lucky supplying the beer for the crash party." -- Couch Baron] End flashback. Veronica's like, "Catcher's mask, eh?" Logan: "And I thought the weird part was the foot-bleaching." Seems Lucky would wear the mask whenever, as Logan puts it, "we would go into battle." Because when you're torching a community pool out of spite, it's good to have backup whose faces are protected. Logan thought the mask was a mere "affectation." He'd know.
