Kane Software. Alicia wraps up a call with Keith and enters a darkened conference room, wherein lies Wiedman. It's an intriguing point that she doesn't know who he is. He tells her that he knows Alicia has been seeing Keith "for the past couple months," which matches up with the assertion that Duncan bought the car a few weeks back. It's worth noting that that revelation makes the relationship between Logan and Veronica seem not to be going at quite the breakneck pace I thought. It may be breakneck in other ways very soon, but we'll have to see about that. Wiedman tells Alicia that Keith is a known enemy of Kane Software and the Kane family, and that he's going to have to ask her to stop seeing him. Alicia tells "Mr. Weed" that she'll do no such thing, and that she's been a model employee, but Wiedman produces a small metal device from his pocket, and tells her it's a bug. Moreover, he found it in a houseplant delivered by Wallace. This is absolutely, completely brilliant, especially if you consider that Wiedman might have found the bug a long time ago and fed Veronica the name of Amelia DeLongpre. Also, it follows up on the foreshadowing that helping Veronica would eventually get Wallace in trouble, only it does so in a far crueler and twistier way. And again, it raises questions about whether one or both of the Kane parents are aware of Wiedman's actions. Bravo. The only person who doesn't seem to appreciate this turn of events is Alicia, but Wiedman's tall and menacing enough that she can be forgiven. Oh, and there's also his reiteration that she should stop seeing Keith. Either one.
School. VMVO tells us that she's showing up early, since she's got to hand in an English paper before her little yacht trip. She comes across Tad, who's taped up to the flagpole, Wallace-in-the-pilot-style, only the word on his chest is "SCUM." I guess Veronica's tutoring has been paying off, considering that the word is spelled correctly. She greets Tad with a "How's it hangin'?" Hee. Unlike last time, I hope they didn't leave his underwear on. Explain that one in the communal shower, asshole.
