Java The Hut. VMVO says that there was an entry in her mom's yearbook referring positively to Lianne's gossip from a woman named "Patty Wilson," who agreed to meet Veronica for coffee. Veronica finds the middle-aged woman in question, who greets Veronica warmly.
Cut to Veronica and Patty sitting and having coffee as Patty tells Veronica that Lianne was very popular. Veronica fakes a smile while wondering whether Patty's referring to the bathroom-wall definition. Patty goes on to say that they gossiped a lot about Lianne's love life, and that Lianne was "on again, off again" with Jake Kane for a while, but that, by Homecoming senior year, they were together for good -- or so Lianne thought. But "that spiteful little shrew" Jake dated over the summer told him she was pregnant. She's talking about Celeste (née "Conathan," or something similar, and don't email me), though, which makes her description totally inaccurate. I mean, Lisa Thornhill has to be at least 5'8". Patty goes on to say that Celeste's family was moving out of Neptune, so Celeste had to find a way to break Jake and Lianne up for good. Celeste finished her senior year at Pan High, but that she came back for the prom, and by then, Jake's love child had magically disappeared. I'll just mention that we learned in the first season that Jake and Lianne were Prom King and Queen, but that was in 1979, not 1980. Someone then appears with a tray of pastries, but I don't know how this woman could think anyone's still hungry after all that exposition. Not that I'm helping. VMVO notes that either Lianne lied about the pregnancy because she got dumped, or she got dumped for telling the truth about it. Or there's a completely unrelated third option, but given that there are only three acts to go, how likely can that be?
