Veronica takes out her switchblade and offers a deal to get him down. Tad is unrepentant, mistakenly blaming Veronica for his being up there, calling her a bitch, and accusing her of taking away the only person he ever loved. Veronica points out that she didn't force him to send the video, and wonders what good he thought it would do. Tad: "Who's gonna want to touch her now? If I can't have her, no one can." I am absolutely unable to determine which I should tackle first: the inaccuracy of that statement, or its offensiveness. I could do both with a simple hand gesture, but I don't know HTML well enough to get it to appear on the page. Veronica tells him that she'll cut him down, but she wants a simple answer: who gave him the Rohypnol the night of Shelley Pomeroy's party? Tad's stunned, and Veronica says she knows he roofied his girlfriend, but Tad corrects her that it wasn't roofies, but was, in fact, GHB. This has been discussed to death in the forums, but my admittedly casual understanding is that, in the right quantity, GHB can be used recreationally, but that people are very sensitive to the dosage, and it is also widely known as a date-rape drug. But unlike Rohypnol, that's not its primary use, so whoever brought it to the party might not have intended it to be given to anyone for any malicious purpose. I'm not trying to absolve anyone -- it just makes the potential for a more intricate story of that night. Keep that in mind as you digest the fact that Tad's supplier was Logan. Instead of cutting Tad down, Veronica rips the bandage off his tattoo and walks away. Tad yells, "This isn't over, Veronica Mars!" Given that the tattoo is your standard Cupid's arrow heart bearing the name "Seth," I'm going to have to agree. I only wonder if Veronica would have paid to have it removed had Tad toed the line.
"Crimson and Clover" plays as Logan waits alone on the boat. He's wearing pants that don't really flatter his ass, not that the forum posters noticed or anything. Seeming to realize that Veronica isn't coming, he opens a some champagne and swigs it straight from the bottle. Champagne for one -- the loneliest drink. Maybe the captain will join you if you pay him a little extra, Logan. Maybe just make it drug-free, though -- you want him to be able to drive.
Next time: tons of people from the season are in the episode, and Veronica solves the rape mystery.
