Veronica picks absently at her meatloaf. Hee. Meatloaf always reminds me of Sars. And rereading that Vegas entry just sent me into hysterics for like, five whole minutes, so forgive me if I'm a little distracted now. The camera's POV swirls around in fast motion until in rests on a table near Veronica. She tells us she used to sit at that table, although she didn't meet the "minimum net-worth requirement." Looking at these kids, the only way the word "worth" can come to mind is attached to the word "less." They get pizza delivered to their table, and one kid pays with a gold card. VMVO tells us that her father used to be the town sheriff, which had a "certain cachet," but the real reason she was allowed at that table was "Duncan Kane, son of software billionaire Jake Kane. He used to be my boyfriend."
We flash back in bluish streaky light to a long-haired Veronica pedemacking with Duncan, who's...not all that, really. The flashbacks are a little jarring, also, because Veronica looks much younger with the shorter hair. Then, in a different flashback: "With no warning, he ended things." We see him walk by her and totally blow her off.
Back in the present, we focus on another kid, and either the casting director, the actor, or both deserve kudos here, because I loathe this kid at first sight. I'd say I couldn't loathe him any more than I do now, but I've seen the episode, and I'd be lying. It definitely is going to help me understand the concept of infinity, though. VMVO tells us that his name is "Logan Echols," and that his dad makes $20 million a picture: "You probably own his action figure." I'm going to own his son's action figure, just as soon as I learn voodoo.
