Veronica, in her room, is studying the Little League photo, which we can now see more clearly has all the kids' names written on their images, including Peter Ferrer's and Marcos Oliveres's. Veronica excitedly answers the phone when Keith calls, and he tells her that he's loading The Woodman on to his own plane as they speak, so they're just waiting for the pilot to get going. The bit of bad news is that The Woodman insists he didn't crash the bus, so they need more evidence, and Veronica counters that she's got one more kid from the picture to track down. They hang up, and Keith boards the plane.
Veronica enters a Woody's Burgers and looks at some Sharks memorabilia that just happens to be displayed there for some reason. Maybe this is where The Woodman serviced...I mean, "served" his first customer. In the 2002 photo, Veronica finds a name she apparently hadn't seen before: "Derek Applegate." What she also hadn't seen before, though, is a line on the bottom that reads, "Not Pictured: Cassidy Casablancas." A visual "DUN DUN DUN!" effect emphasizes Veronica's shock, as we go to commercial.
In the bathroom, Veronica looks like she's just lost her lunch. And she didn't even find a finger in it. Cut to outside, where she's urgently calling someone, and then we're at the party. I don't know -- Veronica's in daylight, although it is maybe starting to fade, and it's not like the party couldn't have started early, but given that she seemed to be planning on going to it, the timeline seems a little conveniently fucked here. She had hours to run this errand, it seems likely enough to me, and I doubt she chitchatted with Jackie for long after the part of the conversation we saw. Anyway, we see Mac and Beaver enter the party, and Mac's phone vibrates in its pouch on her side, but she doesn't notice. Veronica leaves a message for Mac, telling her that she needs to get away from Beaver at all costs because he's dangerous. First you tell her to relax, and then you go and leave a message that's going to make her all tense. How is the poor girl ever supposed to score any action? Veronica calls information and asks for the listing for Hart Hansen, who either has his own phone line, or is one of those emancipated minors I've been hearing so much about. If it's the latter, though, he's probably got a suite at the Neptune Grand, so that will be convenient.
