...and then a sheriff's car is pulling up. Sacks gets out of the car to find Arturo duct-taped to a street sign. Above him, there's an envelope marked "Confession Inside," and Sacks takes it down and opens it to find the tape. He smiles to himself, no doubt figuring that Veronica Mars is behind this windfall. Or perhaps he's just glad that he's not the one with duct tape on his lip.
Neptune High. Veronica finds Mac in the computer room and says she needs Mac's help to get into a restricted website. See, once you start taking on accused mass murderers as clients, you dispense with such social niceties as saying "hello." Mac's less fazed about the lack of manners and more about the fact that Veronica doesn't know the URL; Veronica describes it as a "Neptune High gay chat room." Mac hesitatingly asks, "Veronica, you're not..." Veronica says no, but that she's "curious," and I think the long break was as hard on Veronica as anyone else, because the girl who's usually so sharp with her words and witticisms has been so inattentive that she's managed, in this one episode, to imply that she slept with Dick while fantasizing about Madison. Anyway, Veronica and Mac get through that little bit of awkward, but there's another problem -- Mac did security for the site after some dickhead found it and posted a bunch of offensive stuff. Yay for ban functions and reg queues! Veronica tries to tell Mac that she's helping Ryan, but Mac asks why he didn't just let her on. Veronica grimaces: "Damn you and your valid questions." These two always have such cute scenes, seriously. Mac in the opening credits, please. Veronica begs Mac to let her on so that she can help the other kids, and Mac cutely says that Veronica's embarrassing her. Mac prints out a copy of some forum posts, but says that Veronica has to burn the page when she's done. If they're as detailed as some stuff I've seen on the internet, I think it's safe to say that's only the beginning of what she'll do to purge them from her memory.
