In a nice transition from the misery of the last scene, Jackie and Wallace have an angst-free sex montage. Damn, it looks like someone works out. Wallace, too.
Jail. Keith, down to a whisper, tells Lucky that he's no fan of The Woodman's policies, but Lucky cuts him off and says that's not the point: "People always talk about him as this great guy. He's the mayor. He makes...he makes...good burgers. He's aaaaaaawesome, Woody Goodman." Hee. Lucky just jumped a few points in my book. Lucky's about to tell Keith "what [The Woodman] really is," which I'll only comment here is quite the interesting choice of phrase. However, Lamb chooses that moment to enter with a deputy and suggest that Keith apologize to Sacks, who spent the last hour with his arm down the drain. Good thing he finally found it, I guess, but I would have been interested to see how long Lamb would have kept him there. Probably at least until it started costing his department overtime pay. Lucky and Keith exchange a look, and Keith begs Lamb to give him a little more time. Lamb, surprisingly, seems like he would be amenable to the idea, but his hands are tied, because Lucky made bail. Keith asks who bailed him out, and Lamb, with some surprise, tells him that it was Meg's dad. Of course, Meg's dad is about the only person we've seen stir any human emotions in Lamb. Which is both a distinctive and dubious honor.
Keith brings in the paper in his bathrobe, as Veronica, fully dressed, grabs a drink and rushes out the door, only stopping to tell Keith that the prom was "whatever." She bails. Well, whatever "whatever" is, it's about to get a lot more so. Keith opens the paper and freezes when he sees an article exposing Cook's secret about throwing the ALCS game...
...and in another nice cut, Jackie is reading the same paper as she waits outside her dad's hospital room. The nurse tells Jackie that she can go in, and she dumps the paper and puts on a happy face for her dad. It's ambiguous, but from her expressions, I certainly read it as possible that she leaked the story. Also, there's a deputy stationed outside the door, who will come in handy when all those local fans show up with pitchforks and torches.
Neptune Grand. Veronica gets to Logan's door, hesitates, and then knocks. A shirtless Logan answers the door, and for fans of this relationship, I'd suggest using the pause button to enjoy this moment while you can. Veronica apologizes for running out on him, saying that she needed time to collect her thoughts. Ignoring Logan's warning of "Veronica...," she tells him that she wants to make a point of seeing him over the summer. Man, watching this is like seeing a wince on your dental hygienist's face when you open your mouth before the cleaning starts. Logan manages to combine a blank stare with a heartbroken expression, which will serve him well if he's a fan of Jackie's dad. Veronica, in the harsh light of day, realizes the meaning of his expression, and her face falls apart, too, as Logan explains that "last night was kind of a blur." It's going to be nothing compared to the blur of Veronica running for the elevator. Before that happens, though, Kendall calls out something about room service, appears at the door, and runs her fingers over Logan's abs, noting, "Veronica Mars. What a disappointment." Well, no offense, but Veronica's not that hot on seeing you at the moment either, you skanky, oversexed piece of trash. Okay, maybe I meant a little offense. Kendall slithers back into her lair, and Veronica, unable to hold back the tears, makes her escape over Logan's half-hearted attempt to apologize. As they wait for the elevator doors to close, they stare at each other for about a million years, although I doubt that's part of the epic Logan had mentally scripted. Finally, the doors shut, but whether that's a signal of the impossibility for them to have any kind of future together remains to be seen.
