Weevil's working at a car wash as part of his release from prison, and it's not going too well, so Veronica gets Keith to hire him instead. That doesn't turn out so hot either, so Veronica has to fire him. Well, it's hardly the only dirty work she does in this episode. She gets called in to the Dean's office, and the Dean just happens to be played by Ed Begley Jr., and I can only think that I must have written something at some point to offend the casting director something fierce. The article Veronica wrote in the last episode about the pot hasn't gone away, and Ed threatens Veronica with expulsion if she won't give up the Botany teacher's name. One wonders exactly how many Botany professors there are at Hearst, but maybe Ed wants to make absolutely sure he's going to the right guy when he tries to score some kind bud. Veronica gets out of this jam by busting Ed's son to him, and in the process scores Weevil a campus maintenance job. In other news, Piz is trying to impress this girl Trish, who runs the school radio station, so when her boyfriend, a football player, loses the team's playbook, Piz hooks him up with Veronica, who immediately gets busted posing at a cheerleader. At least it wasn't Madison who caught her. Piz gets his own radio show right before Veronica, after the typical red herrings, busts Trish for trying to get her boyfriend's scholarship withdrawn. She was only doing it to save him from the tyrannical coach, but Trish has lost the book. Meanwhile, Veronica gets pissy about Logan not wanting to do things other than have sex, or something. Through a series of semi-contrivances, Veronica gets distrustful of Logan, but he's not cheating on her -- he's participating in Hearst's underground gambling ring instead. Things come together when it turns out some dude stole the book from Trish in order to fix a Hearst football game. Logan and Veronica get in a fight over her spying on him, and I guess that's my fault for calling them functional in the last recap. Knowing that Logan's going on a trip to Mexico and knowing what often happens when he goes south of the border, Veronica installs a tracking device in Logan's car, but reconsiders at the last minute. Veronica confesses to Logan that she has trust issues, and they somewhat tearily stay together for a while. Also, another girl gets raped, but we won't know any details until next time. Probably best, because...this episode? A bit fluffy for such awfulness.
Some football player is running steps in the stadium in full uniform as his coach suggests that instead of skipping meetings, he should just quit. I'm not sensing the coach is going to be recruited as an AA sponsor anytime soon. We pan up to a sunglasses-wearing Veronica as a VMVO clunkily transitions our way into the subject of protesting, which is Veronica's cue to look at her copy of the school paper, the Free Press, the headline of which reads, "Lilith House Protest Creates Controversy," atop a photo of several topless (with the naughty parts barred out) female students at a football game displaying a banner that reads, "We go to Hearst. Go ahead, rape us." I'll admit that that's a little more provocative than "Go Team." Logan appears, and after allowing Veronica to prove she's been attending classes by rotely reciting a speech that sounds ripped from her latest Women's Studies reading, the two of them walk out. A speaking bimbo with a non-speaking girl in tow tells Logan that she'll see him at some party, and informs him that he can bring his "friend" if he wants. Once they're gone, Logan explains to Veronica that the bimbos are from weightlifting class, and we've been together long enough that I certainly trust you to make your own dumbbell joke. Veronica somewhat tautly speculates about what they do in said class, prompting Logan to put his arms around her and ask whether she's jealous. Veronica: "'Jealous' would involve piano wire." Heh. She seriously says that she's somewhat annoyed, because when his "gym buddies" ask him to a party, he's there already, but when she wants to do something "interesting," he's busy. Well, if it's any consolation, Veronica, if you were the one inviting him to the party and the gym buddies were asking him to take in the auditory equivalent of Sominex, he'd probably favor you. She continues that in college, one is supposed to expand one's horizons "past video games and binge drinking." Oh, Veronica, this is Logan we're dealing with. And as you should know, given that you can't give up your taser or your rapier wit, you gotta dance with what brung you. Logan says he's willing to try something other than throwing up on his XBox, so Veronica suggests the "Art Major Group Show" that night. Logan, however, is busy because he has class until ten. Veronica does not say, "Call me sometime when you have no class," which is very sad for all Back To School fans. (What? No respect?) He suggests that she come by afterward so they can get "political." Yeah, James Carville always turns me on. Oh, that's not what he meant.
