Back at Tim's office, Veronica lets herself in by way of the taped-down door catch, and removes her tiny cameras and recording equipment from a lampshade and under the desk. You know, I thought I was up on all the gadgetry of the times, but the thing that Veronica removes from the black casing and sticks into her laptop as though it were a data stick looks like an iPod shuffle. Can you do that with the Shuffles? Even if you can't, I admit that I do love the gadgets on this show, especially when Mac performs the role of Q and doles them out to Veronica when she's about to go on a case. With everything hooked up, Veronica gets a shot of Tim's fingers picking out his password, which, to Veronica's eye-rolling delight, is "DICK TRACY." Veronica logs into Tim's computer and gets a load of Tim's desktop wallpaper. It's an unmistakable silhouette of Sherlock Holmes. The thing I find hysterical is that it's a silhouette of Sherlock Holmes against a cloudy sky. Like it's a photograph. A posed photograph. A Tim posed photograph. Veronica looks through Tim's browser history until she sees that he was visiting the Neptune Women's Clinic after he performed a few searches like "what to know about pregnancy" and "pregnancy week to week." Veronica is momentarily distracted when she sees a folder on the desktop titled "O'Dell-suicide?" Opening it, Veronica realizes that Tim is investigating the Dean's death, and has folders titled "Forensics," "Suspects," and "Witnesses." Now, won't Veronica change the modified date upon opening these files and folders? In "Witnesses," there's a document for Weevil and another for someone named Anthony Martin, who is labeled as an "earwitness." Anthony heard the shot while walking home drunk from the Pi Sig party, but he was unable to determine time of death. There's a knock at a door that made me jump out of my skin. I have the hardest time when Veronica is rifling through people's stuff and computers on this show -- it makes me very nervous. However, the knock wasn't at Tim's office...
