Veronica takes a long moment to gather her thoughts, and then raises her hand -- the one holding the bug. I'm not sure Tim sees it, but either way, his voice is very tight and his face dead as he calls on her again. My problems with certain plot points aside, this scene was very subtly acted and well done. Veronica brings up the point about Tim knowing that the kids were in England, and then says that whoever bugged Landry's phone knew about the Dean's fight with Landry and Mindy, that the Dean was drunk in his office, and -- most importantly -- that Landry had shot down Tim's chance for a teaching job at Pepperdine. The students ooh and aah, but they're not getting the big picture yet. This isn't Simon and Ryan fighting on the way to the bedroom, kids. Veronica gets to her feet, and after starting to approach Tim, she tells him that he bugged both her phone and Landry's, and that he had access to Landry's clothes: "You murdered Dean O'Dell to destroy Professor Landry! Because he used you, then betrayed you! And when he said he had an alibi, you faked it, so you'd be sure he'd go down." Tim is responding to Veronica's triumph by holding himself like a Titanic passenger in the final minutes. Don't ever let go, Tim! Veronica hisses, "Bet he'll change his mind about you not being that smart." Everyone looks around, like, "Does this mean we get out early again?" Not really, but Tim bows his head in defeat, while Veronica looks like she could spit nails at the guy who killed her buddy Dean Ed. She's even too mad to point out that she "Foyled" his evil plan. Just as well -- you should never pun angry.
