Subtle cut to Wallace, which is the best thing about this scene, as some dude -- who annoys the piss out of me from moment one -- comes in and tries to get Wallace to blow off studying. We learn that Wallace wants to be a mechanical engineer, and what's more, he's always wanted to be a mechanical engineer. That kind of seems out of nowhere, but it would at least explain the dorky glasses in Veronica's end-of-season dream. Wallace's annoying friend convinces him to go out that night, and I miss Piz quite a lot here.
Over the phone, Keith informs Dean Ed that he tracked down his wife's ex, and even got the apartment manager to let him into the ex's apartment, wherein he deduced that the guy is scraping out a living as a voice-over actor. Keith says that he has a plan to arrange a meeting.
Weevil arrives home, and is about to enter when he hears barking from within. He opens his toolbox and takes out a large wrench before entering and turning on the lights to find Veronica and Backup. Yay for pretty pit bulls! And Backup, too! Commercials.
When we're back, Veronica wastes no time in demanding the necklace. Weevil claims to know nothing of what she's talking about, so she bites out that six hours after she told him about the party, it was held up by a guy his size covered in a thin layer of dry-wall dust "and the stench of Drakkar cologne." Well, the Drakkar could be explained by the presence of Chipsters, and they're all too prevalent in a college atmosphere. The dry-wall dust is perhaps a more significant clue. Anyway, Weevil eventually tires of this discussion and tells her he can't believe she'd think he'd do that to her after all they've been through. At first I was going to say that I could see both sides of this argument, which shows that their history has set them up well. I only wished they'd skipped that stupid exchange about Logan, because it looked like Veronica was factoring in his attitude about Logan and Lilly in weighing whether he could have gone through with taking the necklace from her, and that is bullshit there. But then, I realized this: No matter what Veronica thinks of Weevil's morals, I cannot believe that she could think he would have grabbed her by the throat and shoved her up against a wall. No way, no day, and that cheapens this whole storyline. Anyway, Veronica is unbowed, so Weevil asks her to leave. On her way out, without looking at her, he adds, "It's a wonder you don't have more friends." Well, in her defense, she's got Mac, only you wouldn't know it, given that she's indubitably a member of a religion wherein you sit shiva for what seems like eighteen years at a time.
