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!
