Landry's class. Veronica enters as VMVO tells us that knowing that Landry or Mindy left the Grand in time to kill Dean Ed adds a whole new level of weirdness to attending Profiling class. Landry calls Veronica up and tells her he has good news: she's made it to the second round of the FBI internship. So she did end up applying for the internship, even though she did the final paper? Veronica, college is about doing the minimum amount of work. Didn't anyone tell you? Also, I know the FBI is sometimes the subject of scorn, but I still think the screening process is pretty rigorous, so I'm a little skeptical that someone THE FBI BASICALLY KNOWS AIDED AND ABETTED A FELONY would be invited into their ranks. Maybe it's the recruiting version of "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." Veronica valiantly musters some enthusiasm, and thanks Landry for pushing her to apply, and for the recommendation. Landry tells her that he's sure Dean Ed's letter helped quite a bit. Veronica's confused, so Landry tells her that he put a notice in the faculty blog soliciting further recommendations, and that Dean Ed came through. Veronica's affected by the news, but covers by saying that it reminds her of a part of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang after Robert Downey Jr.'s character dies. Landry corrects her that Downey survives the film. I've been pretty happy with the detective work here, but COME ON. This proves nothing beyond the fact that Landry's seen the film at some point. Further than that, even if he hadn't known the ending, wouldn't it be possible that, at 3:30 in the morning, he was, I don't know, ASLEEP? Perhaps this is why Landry seems to be looking at her, all, "Good luck getting to that third round."
Mars Investigations. Veronica produces a copy of Dean Ed's recommendation. It's short and to the point, but positively glowing, and Veronica and Keith are both deeply moved. They agree to honor Dean Ed by jailing his killer. And this is maybe a little heavy-handed, but we do know that Dean Ed really liked Veronica, and besides, I'm all for anything that gets Veronica and Keith working together on a big case.
