Cut to Veronica entering Duncan's room as VMVO tells us that at least she gets to curl up with her "adorable, honest boyfriend." Well, I know they're setting up a point here, but Duncan DIDN'T TELL HER ABOUT VISITING MEG, LIKE, TWO WEEKS AGO. So perhaps you'll admit that the point might be slightly flawed. Veronica sees "Duncan" lying on the couch with a magazine over his face, but I don't blame her for thinking it's him, since NO ONE ON EARTH WEARS THAT MUCH ARGYLE. Also, it is his room. Veronica crawls on top of him, and he puts her arms around her. To her credit, she realizes it isn't Duncan before Logan starts talking: "It's the sweater, isn't it? Chicks can't resist argyle." That's got to be a shout-out. Veronica jumps up, and when Duncan appears, she asks him what Logan's doing there. Logan says he's out a house, so he lives there now. Which means the sitcom is actually Three's Company, only with the potential for a lot more sexual confusion. Duncan apologizes for not telling Veronica. I guess those remedial Spanish classes kept him pretty busy.
Keith sneaks into a warehouse where the salvaged bus is being housed. He takes a look around the bus with a flashlight. I'm assuming he thinks the forensic team has already completed its examination; otherwise, I can't believe he would risk contaminating the evidence like this. A deputy's voice calls out, prompting Keith to drop to the floor of the bus. This gives him the angle to see that a dead rat is duct-taped under one of the seats. That must have been the noisome odor Dick complained about in the season premiere. Nice, although I'm not sure the rat's corpse would be quite so intact here. Oh, I'm sorry -- I'm talking when I should be DUN DUN DUN-ing. My bad.
Awesome episode -- so tight and so well-paced. I didn't realize just how much I missed certain characters until I saw them onscreen again.
Next time: a creepy child-abuse episode. I won't be telling you about it, though -- Jacob will. Be nice to him or I'll sic Wiedman on you. See you in two!
