Veronica Mars Recap & Spoilers: Look Who’s Stalking

April 25, 2006 by  

The Veronica Mars writers really know how to turn it up near the end. We’ve got only a few episodes left, and I’m more hooked than ever.  Tonight’s “Look Who’s Stalking” is right up there with the “Plan B” episode from a few weeks back, as one the best shows of the season, nay, the series. 

We open on our heorine to find her, of all places, in a Dr’s office.  Looks like Veronica has been hanging out with George O’Malley and the staff of Seattle Grace Hospital these days, because she seems to have contracted chlamydia.  Veornica you dirrty girl. She is perplexed by this news.  Who did Duncan get chlamydia from?  Looks like Meg Manning was a teenager mother and kind of loose.  Unless of course, Duncan had been with someone else besides Meg and Veronica?  I’d suggest calling him, but he’s on the run from federal kidnapping charges, so you might not want to bother him.  Take a few penicillin and you’ll be fine. 

As the kinds wander through the halls of Neptune High, we come across one of those really dumb Veronica Mars moments, where a plot point is so obvioulsy forced, it hurts.  This time we have Van Clemmons canceling the prom due to alcohol violations.

Veronica Mars - Keith & WoodyWoody has been working out, and seems to be strong enough to have killed some chick who is now lying in his bed at the Camelot. Ok, she’s not dead, but she’s passed out. Woody calls Keith to assist, and Keith agrees to take the chic to the hospital. Uh, dumb move Mr. Mars. 

Looks like Woody’s daughter is having issues too. She is being stalked, and like her dad, she also goes to a Mars for help. But Gia goes to the cute little blond one.

Back at Mars Investigations, Kendall Casablancas is asking for her stolen hardrive. This leads to the funniest exchange of the night.

Kendall: Your dad and I were just dealing with a little trouble
Veronica: Like trouble, with a capital “T” that rhymes with “C” that stands for…
Keith: Veronica!
Veronica: I was going to say cute

A bit later, Keith has asked Veronica to help circulate a sketch of the dude that hired the escort who stole Cliff’s briefcase a few weeks back.  His sweet and sassy daughter obliges.

Veronica Mars: Veronica and GiaBack in Veornica’s room, Gia is awed by Roni’s PI talents and her gadgets.  Can we just take a minute to imagine an Alias/Veronica Mars crossover?  The fun that Veronica would have with Marshall’s gadget.  That sounded dirtier than ti should have. Sorry. Veronica Mars is on her game tonight with her witty repartee.

Gia: How mission impossible. I feel like any moment Tom Cruise is going to dangle from the ceiling on cables
Veronica: Great. Now I won’t be able to sleep. I hope he doesn’t truy to marry me.


Leonardo D’Amato is following Gia. Oh no, not Leonardo D’Amato. Wait, do I know him?  Well color me dumb, because Leonardo is none other than Officer Leo, Roni’s ex-boyfriend.

Back by the bright yellow lockers, Veronica is clearly trying to get some info about Duncan’s sexual history from the love of her life Logan.

Veronica: You don’t happen to know if he was with, and by with, I mean “with” someone other than Meg?
Logan (looking adoringly at Veronica): There was one girl. She was blonde, petite, smelled like marshmallows and promises.

Logan loves Veronica. He really loves her.

Logan and some of the other 09ers are throwing an alternprom. Yes, an alternaprom. I think I overheard that it’s going to be at Leery’s Fresh Fish. Logan kind of asks Veronica to the alternaprom.  Ok not really, but he tells her about it and tells her to go, so that’s kind of like asking her, right?  Anyway, true VM fans know that LoVe is written all over Logan’s face. He’s starting to get all familiar and cute with Veronica.

Veronica and her other ex-boyfriend, Leo, have coffee during which she confronts him about stalking Gia. As it turns out, Woody has hired round the clock security for Gia, and Leo is on the team.

As we could all have predicted, Keith is taking the fall for Woody’s girl in the hotel. Hmmm. Woody is throwing Keith under the bus. The bus…the crashed bus?

Gia finds a DVD with video footage of her and her family, very similar to the one the “gardner” took a few weeks ago. She brings it to Veronica who uses her slick PI skillz to figure out that the Goodman family stalker is a Neptune High jock who drives a beat up a red truck. Clearly not an 09er.

It’s voting day – will Neptune be incorporated? The suspense is klling me. Nah, I could care less. It’s not incorporated. Yawn…

Neptune’s resident studs, Logan and Dick roam the hallways discussing possible alternaprom dates. Seems that everyone knows about the alternaprom, including Corny. Dude, I’m sorry, but I just can’t stand Corny. He’s so obnoxious.

Gia is pissed at Veronica ever since Keith turned the spotlight back on Woody with regards to all the hooker nonsense.

Meanwhile as Casa de Mars, Veronica and Keith compare Woody family video tapes, and Keith tells Veronica to stay away. Right, I’m sure she will.  Veronica is nothing if not good as following orders.

Logan and Veronica are in Mr. Wu’s study hall.  Mr. Wu snaps at Veronica for not studying during study hall. Has anyone else noticed that Mr. Wu keeps popping up?  Do wu think that’s a coincidence?  Anyway,Logan tells Veronica that the guy in Keith’s sketches looks a lot like his Dad’s cellmate.

Back at the Neptune Navigator offices, Veronica is trying to be nice to Gia but she’s not having it.  Veronica has had enough and decides to head out for the night.  On her way out, she says her goodbyes to Lucky, who is waxing the floor. But as soon as she walks outside she finds the red truck, and who does it belong to? Lucky Charms himself.

Veronica goes back into the school only to find Lucky talking to Gia in the closet. Yeah, because it’s always a good idea to get in a closet with a stranger.  Veronica tries to tell Gia that Lucky is the red truck guy, but she has no luck before Lucky realizes she is there.  Lucky has some serious issues. He pulls out a machette, which he happens to keep in his maintenance locker at the high school. Yeah, that’s normal. Keith comes busting in, throws Lucky to the ground, and cuffs him. He asks why he was stalking Gia, and Lucky keeps saying “he deserved it, he deserved it”. Who deserved what? Woody? What could Mayor Woody Goodman possibly have done to young Lucky to make his hate him so much. Hmmmm. I wonder.  Lamb comes busting in right after Keith (Keith called him). Lamb is quite bothered by Keith’s presence and tells him to leave.  Feeling that there is more to Lucky’s story, Keith takes the only handcuff key and throws in down the drain, ensuring he will be arrested to.

Over at alternaprom, the kids all pile into an elevator.  Dude, how many people can fit in one elevator?  Butters has some funny line about an eventual space elevator.  That kid is bizarre.  Oh, and Mac is still pissed that Veronica promised her to Butters for the Prom.  Where is littel Cassidy Casablancas?  Did Mac not put up a fight for her little guy?  C’mon, they were adorable together.

The elevator doors open into, what I think is Logan’s apartment at the Neptune Grand.  Are the kids having the alternaprom in the hallway, because I don’t remember Duncan and Logan having an elevator in their apartment. Yeah, I was actually in their apartment and there was no elevator to be found.  I’m sure of it. I’m going to have to watch this scene again so I can figure out the logistics.

Wait for it…wait for it…ah, Logan Echolls in a tux. Jason. Dohring. is. Beautiful.  I mean, seriously beautiful.  Few men can pull off a white tux and not look like a pimp.  Logan welcomes the elevator crew, which includes Miss Mars, who he can’t seem to take his eyes off of.

Logan and Veronica: Veronica Mars

All alone with no ex-boyfriend in site.  An intoxicated Logan spills his heart to Veronica.  The spilling of the heart went a little something like this…

Logan(to Veronica): Alone again.
Veronica: Naturally.
Logan: I know the feeling.
Veronica: You? The host of the greatest private replacement prom ever.  I’m sure you could have your pick to the bimbos.

(awkward silence)

Veornica: I really like this song
Logan: I’m surprised Veronica, as a keen observer of the human condition, I thought you saw through people better than that. Bimbos?  That’s not me anymore.
Veronica: So what are you like now?
Logan: You know. Tortured. Ever since I had my heart broken.
Veronica: Hannah really did do a number on you, huh?
Logan: Come on, you know I’m not talking about Hannah.

(awkward silence #2)

Logan: I thought our story was epic, you know. You and me.
Veronica: Epic how?
Logan: Spanning years and continents…lives ruined, bloodshed, epic.  But summers almost here, and we won’t see each other at all. And then you’ll leave town, and then…it’s over.
Veronica: Logan..
Logan: I’m sorry…about last summer.  If I could do it over…
Veronica: Come on. Ruined lives? Bloodshed?  You really think a relationship should be that hard?
Logan: No one writes songs about the ones that come easy.
(Logan gets closer and brushes Veronica’s cheek with his hand..he leans in to kiss her, and ….) 


Stupid Veronica panics and takes off. Come on Veronica…seriously?!  Logan is your McDreamy!!! Once again, I have to say that Jason Dohring is a f’ing great actor.  His delivery was perfect.  I love Logan when he is at his most vulnerable.

In a relationship NOT crashing and burning in front of my eyes, Wallace and Jackie get busy. Like Veronica, I think of Wallace as a little brother, and I don’t want to see him getting it on. Ew.

Keith and Lucky are sharing a jail cell.  Keith’s trying to get Lucky to spill his issues with Woody.  He was just about to tell him when Lamb comes in and screws it up…again.  Oh and get this, Meg’s father bailed Lucky out of jail.
Back in the hospital waiting room, Jackie’s FFG doesn’t last long as she reads on the front page that her dad threw the championship game. She visits with her dad all the same, masking her knowledge of the news

The post-alterna prom sun has risen, and Veronica leaves the house in a hurry.  She finds herself outside of Logan’s door.  A special thanks from me to you Rob Thomas for another shirtless Logan scene.  Veronica apoogizes to Logan for taking off so quickly right before the kiss.  In a bold, and presumably scary move on Veronica’s part, she tells him that she’s not ready to lose him from her life.  She’s not sure she wants to dive back into a relationship right now, but after graduation she wants them to see each other and see where that takes them. Aw, Veronica loves Logan now too.  Yay!!  Oh wait… what’s this?  Logan isn’t jumping for joy.  Actually he looks sad.  He can’t even look into her eyes.  He tells her last night was kind of a blur, just as the town slut peeks around the corner. Damn you Kendall Casablancas.  Keep out of the beds of high school boys.  That’s it, I’m calling social services on you.

Veronica chokes back tears, and Logan feels it too. She starts to cry and turns to leave.  He tries to stop her, but she won’t have it, and makes her way to the elevator.  Their eyes are locked as the elevator door closes.  WHY GOD WHY?!
On the next Veronica Mars:  It’s judgement day on Veronica Mars.  The Aaron Echolls murder trial is on. Woody is threating Keith.  And OMG Lucky is at Neptune High on a shooting rampage. Um, how One Tree Hill of you.  Looks like those spoilers I read about the shooting may just be true.  Sniff Sniff !!!
