...and they're back at Trufflehunter's store, which is closed on the weekends. Keith notes that that fits with the killer's MO of holding the girls for forty-eight hours. He tells Leo to keep a lookout for the guy, and breaks in. Not so much with the warrant now, but I believe it's unnecessary if the cop has sufficient cause to think a crime is in progress. Inside, Keith busts into the studio. He crashes into a cymbal, which is obviously going to alert Trufflehunter, if he's there. Keith hears the girl's voice coming from a small kegerator. Hard to believe something so good could be used for such evil. Keith's attention is totally focused on breaking the lock on the kegerator with a crowbar. That would be sloppy police work even if Trufflehunter wasn't coming down the stairs in the background. Keith gets the girl out, but when her eyes focus behind Keith, she screams. Keith turns, and Trufflehunter is about to hit him with a heavy weapon of his own, but Leo comes out of nowhere and tackles Trufflehunter to the ground. Trufflehunter grips Leo's throat, but Keith draws his gun, and it's all over. Except for the part where Keith just gained a future son-in-law.
But not yet, as we cut to Leo packing his things at the sheriff's office. Veronica tells Leo that was a smooth move, saving her father's life and all. He tells her, however, that he's been suspended for a week, since "someone" left the evidence room unlocked during his shift. Veronica looks chastened. Leo's a good sport about the whole thing, although that could be because Veronica's the first person to come see his band rehearse in the history of ever. He does say, though, "Can't say I wasn't warned," which is interesting. VMVO says something unnecessary, but she's off her game with the whole using-the- nice-cute-guy- who-saved- her-father's-life thing. Mac interrupts Veronica's self-flagellating with a phone call. She says she unscrambled the message, and Veronica can come by in the morning, although it has to be early, since she's going camping with her family. Mmm, tofu dogs!
