Veronica makes her way down the school corridor and, having been alerted by a third party to Duncan's absence, leaves him a funny message: "Are you sick, or am I going to see you singing 'Twist And Shout' on a parade float?" If you don't get that joke, it's from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and I love you. She looks up and sees the Out Of Order sign on the bathroom door that is her Batsignal.
Inside, Veronica finds Logan reminiscing kind of pathetically about the time they made out in there and her legs were wrapped around his waist, and, like, I miss it, too, dude, but come on. Logan's so puppy-dog right now, and it's sad and adorable, but mostly sad. "How much easier," he asks, "would your life be if you were indifferent to me?" Logan, as usual, speaks volumes, but Veronica just scoffs and pretends he's talking crazy: "What do you want?" He reminds her, painfully, about this one time when he got arrested, and mentions that guy who came forward and said he was the 911 caller who saved Logan on the bridge. "I thought you could do some sleuthing. For old times' sake." Veronica acts incensed, but she's clearly invested: "Give me something I can work with!" Lest you, like I, assume she means cashola, he obliges: "He said I threatened him." The guy is clearly setting Logan up, and he needs to know why. Veronica figures out that this is a bit bigger than the usual Logan/Veronica thing, and gets that particular flavor of hardcore that I love: "Give me his name." She leaves the restroom, and removes the sign, her Bat-business done for now.
Duncan approaches, looking...worried? Jealous? Angry? "Hey, I just tried to call you!" yells Veronica, already covering, but he grabs her arm and pulls her down the hall toward a quiet place. Over his shoulder, he sees Logan coming out of the lav, scaring some girls, and Veronica gets all explainy: "Logan wanted me to help him..." Duncan immediately interrupts, "I'm not really thinking about that right now," like he ever is. Duncan tells Veronica that he "downloaded" some of the files from Meg's computer after he got it from Lizzie. I think that means he "opened and read" them, but this Neptune lingo, you know, I'm older than even Kendall. By negative eight years. Veronica asks why on earth Meg would be emailing someone at "Child Protection Services," and Duncan explains that she's been trying to get proof about this kid she babysits, who's getting abused. He exposiclarifies that the abuse is not sexual or physically abusive, that "they're mentally tormenting him," and in...anguish? Anger? Disappointment? -- yells, "We have to find him!"
