After meeting his birth father (Nathan Woods) last episode, Wallace comes in the house and gives his mom (Alicia) shit for hiding the truth from him.

This one starts with Veronica doing some paperwork on Sunday at her dad’s office. She doesn’t officially work for him anymore, but I guess she still helps with clerical stuff. A woman (Julie Bloch) comes in desperate to hire Keith to dig up some dirt on her boyfriend, Colin Nevin. She recently found an engagement ring while rooting through his gym bag and wants to figure out if he’s trustworthy before making a bigger commitment. (Yes, Julie is irony-impaired.)

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 1

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 1: Normal is the Watchword

This is the first episode of Veronica Mars second season, where we find out what’s happened since all the fireworks in last season’s finale. There are a lot of flashbacks in this episode, revealing the new status quo a little at a time. That’s a device that sometimes works, but it can get annoying too. it’s not too bad here, although there’s one reveal they save until later in the show that makes it seem like they were bending over backwards not to give it away.

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 22: Leave It to Beaver

Well, this is it … the last episode of the first season, where Veronica (and the viewers) finally find out who killed Lilly. Hang on, ’cause this one gets pretty wild. We start with Keith talking to a newspaper reporter, trying to convince him to write about Abel Koontz being innocent of Lilly Kane’s murder. The reporter is skeptical, but Keith gives him a file full of evidence and introduces him to Koontz’s alibi, the hooker named Cheyenne. The reporter says he’ll check things out.

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 1, Episode 21

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 21: A Trip to the Dentist

This one deals with rape and there’s a lot of slipping stuff into people’s drinks without their knowledge, so if that kind of thing bothers you, you might want to skip this episode. It starts in Havana, Cuba, where Keith has managed to find Duncan by tracing the fake passport he used. (Interestingly, Duncan is reading the Globe & Mail, a Toronto paper; as far as I know, the show was filmed in California, not Canada. But Canada has always had trade with Cuba, and Canadians are allowed to travel there, so maybe the Globe & Mail is sold there.) Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 1, Episode 21”
