VMVO tells us that Cliff has come through again. Was there ever any doubt? Veronica discovers that Amelia made a call from Neptune only a week ago. Man, she was in town and didn't visit her dying dad? That's cold.
Lamb leads Logan to a cell, and if you didn't see the little neck massage Lamb gives Logan on the way, I assume you'll be watching the scene again posthaste. Once the door's closed, Logan asks when he gets his conjugal visit. From the way Lamb's batting his eyes at Logan, it might be sooner than he thinks. Logan looks around the cell and sees a grizzled dude sitting on the bed, and then hears someone speak his name from offscreen. He turns around to find his dear old dad. Well, at least he doesn't have to worry about this turning into a scene from Oz. I hope.
Haaron asks Logan why he's there, but Logan turns the question around. Haaron says he got transferred out of County that morning: "I guess our sheriff has a soft spot for family, huh?" Or at least an eye for great actor chemistry. Haaron notes that at least Logan is visiting: "Those special times with your emancipation paperwork don't really count." Only because they didn't permit one last belt-whipping for the road. Logan snits that he needed a little time to work through how Haaron bashed Lilly's skull in. Haaron cops to sleeping with Lilly, but says he didn't kill her -- Duncan did. Looks like someone got into the "Alternate Season 1 Ending" file on Rob Thomas's desktop. Change that password, Rob! Haaron pleads his case, saying that Duncan overheard him and Lilly at the Kane estate, and was furious, so Haaron took off. Because if we've learned anything about Haaron, it's that he's quick to back away from a fight. Logan points out that Haaron also tried to kill Veronica, and it's worth noting that Haaron basically confessed to Veronica that he killed Lilly, in case anyone's being taken in by his bullshit story. I'll bet, before last year, you never thought you'd believe a lie because Harry Hamlin's acting sold it. Haaron says he tried to kill Veronica because he "snapped." I hope he's not representing himself. Haaron sighs that maybe his life is over, but then, with more conviction, adds that Logan shouldn't throw his own life away just to spite Haaron. It does sound like the sort of thing Logan would do, too. Haaron says he wants to get Logan a real lawyer, not one "with a mail-order diploma and a three-hundred-dollar suit." Cliff's voice cuts in: "Two for five hundred, actually, but your point remains valid." Heh. He informs Logan that he's made bail; Cliff and the judge go to the same gym. Also, the bond is $200,000: "So, Chip, how 'bout you thank me by taking the old block's advice: get a new lawyer." Man, if Cliff had every line on this show, my recaps would simply be links to the shooting scripts. Logan smiles and says that Cliff has won him over. I'm not clear what took him so long. Also, the meaning of his line is open to interpretation, especially given his delivery. If a vote can influence the outcome, I'll opt for more Cliff.
