Veronica's leaving home to go to the reception. Keith calls out to say that Logan left a couple of messages, which Veronica answers with a breezy acknowledgement. Actually getting out the door proves to be more difficult, though, since the message-leaver is standing there when Veronica opens it. He tells her that they need to talk, and Veronica says that she hasn't gotten back to him yet because she hasn't had time to have a discussion. You could, say, schedule a talk for some future time, Veronica -- they have these things called "electronic organizers" that can help. If only you were better with gadgets, I wouldn't have to tell you these things. Anyway, Logan informs Veronica that he wants her to drop the rape investigation, since it's clear that the culprit knows who she is. Veronica, in a low, anxious voice, tells Logan that Keith doesn't know about her hair (and she's wearing a quite different 'do this week to cover up the damage). I'm not sure how Keith didn't get a glimpse of that in the whole time Veronica was incapacitated, but whatever. Anyway, Veronica points out that Logan was all for her sleuthing when Mercer was in trouble, but Logan says that was before she got attacked, and soon he's raised his voice, which causes Keith to emerge and tell Logan that he might want to stop yelling at Veronica. Logan: "You might want to start." Looks like the détente might be over -- time to put the lamps in storage. Logan storms out, and Veronica covers by saying that he's just worried about her. Keith wonders if he has a reason to be. Other than THE RAPIST attacking her, Keith? With the DRUGGING and all? I mean, I know you don't know about all of that, but even without the hair, it's not the hardest leap to make, you know? Keith tells Veronica he's always a phone call away. I hope the short bus has good pickup.
Veronica's snapping photos. We pan over to Selma asking Dean Ed, "How can I be the swing vote if you know which way I'm going to swing?" Given what we learn later, you kind of have to admire her for bringing a whole other degree of relevance to that sentiment. Veronica asks for a picture, and Selma hands Dean Ed a napkin to wipe the Thousand Island dressing off his face. As Veronica shoots away, Dean Ed tells Selma that she should be nice to him, since he's about to kiss her ass. Well, Dean Ed, even for those people who are into that, the dressing would probably be a deal-breaker.
