Neptune Grand. Logan's bushing his teeth on the balcony (okay, it's a nice view, but...) when there's a knock at the door. He tosses the toothbrush aside and opens the door to find Dick. Dick's hair looks like he's been hanging out with the drunken stylist from A Flock Of Seagulls, so I think we're meant to infer that he's hit rock bottom here. He tells Logan that he has nowhere else to go, and Logan, having had some experience with rock bottom himself, looks hit hard as he tells Dick he can stay with him. Dick breaks down, and Logan puts a hand on his neck as Dick tells him, "I messed up bad." Is he referring to how he treated Beaver generally? Ambiguous. Logan hugs a sobbing Dick. They're going to have to work hard to make me care about Dick's emotional problems, but Ryan Hansen's done some real solid work on this show, so I'm keeping an open mind.
Mac and Veronica return to Mac's dorm as we see that Veronica's amusingly tipsy on Irish coffee. The banter's fun, and I like to see these two like this, but we've got balder fish to fry here. Rather than drive home (so Veronica's not living on campus, which makes sense), she crashes on Mac's couch.
In the morning, Mac and Veronica are awakened by screams. They're coming from a bald Parker, who's the latest rape victim. I talked a lot about Piz, but Julie Gonzalo is a fine addition to this cast, I tell you what. That was chilling, and Veronica and Mac look stunned as we cut out.
I feel good about this mystery. I already care about Parker, and that goes a long way. Now if Veronica herself gets invested, we'll be cooking with gas. Let's see what happens -- next week!
