Keith returns home. Veronica tells him she found Luka, but he'd already heard from people in the complex. They have a pleasant chat until Keith suggests that he watch TV while she rubs his feet. Rather than foster any more division on the boards, I will opt for a less controversial path and simply take Veronica's response of "Hmm, that's normal!" as a shout-out.
Andre looks for his keys as Luka holds Killer and tells him she doesn't want to deal with her parents. If you've not caught up by now, you should have. Andre tells her she'll have to deal with them sometime. Luka: "You're right." Way to go, Andre. He steps out to take Killer for a walk.
Downstairs of Fake Denouements. Veronica tells Keith she still doesn't trust Andre, but Keith says that Andre knows about the DNA test, and he said it doesn't matter: "A man's gotta be pretty committed to a woman to agree to raise another man's child." And the department of "Sentences To Be Dissected For Hidden Meaning" is no longer accepting applications. This sends Veronica into a reverie, which Keith snaps her out of with an "Earth to Mars!" Heh. He asks if Veronica knows who the father is.
Luka goes in to see her parents. "Mom, there's something you should know." Oh, dear.
Keith urgently wants to know why Veronica didn't tell him Luka was raped. Apparently he's watched TV before, too. Veronica says she just found out. Judging from the yelling coming from upstairs, she's not the only one. Luka's mom is calling her a liar, and Luka's saying that her stepdad raped her. Keith tells Veronica to stay put, and he points two fingers at her to tell her he ain't kidding. Veronica looks upstairs with her face full of worry...
...as it well should be, as Luka's pulled the gun on her stepdad. But Keith's voice rings in from outside, distracting Luka, and the stepdad knocks the gun away. He grabs it and is about to pound Luka with it, but Keith shoots him from offscreen in the right shoulder, which, I'm sad to say, is the wrong shoulder, given how he was bound up in the opening scene. Or so it seemed to me, anyway. Luka's mom holds her and tells her she's sorry. Hey, no need to apologize, lady. You're not the continuity editor. Veronica rushes upstairs to see Keith still posed in shooting position. Next time he'd better stick out three fingers. As long as Weevil and Logan aren't anywhere nearby.
And we're back to where we were at the beginning, as the stepdad gets loaded into the ambulance. Keith tells Veronica that Luka will be okay, and Veronica speculates that she's grounded, but Keith tells her he'll let her slide on this one. VMVO: "But can I let myself slide? Sure, the real tragedy happened long before I came along. I just brought it to the surface. But are some things better left buried?" I'll let the full-season order field that one.
