Veronica Mars Season 1 Eps 12, 13&14 Reviewed

Clash of the Tritons

Veronica is arrested for supplying fake ID, ironically it's the one crime she didn't commit. Veronica defends herself with annoying smugness and unearths a Neptune High secret society known as the Tritons. She also bugs the Guidance Counsellor's office and learns secrets about Weevil, Duncan and Logan. For instance she learns Weevil dated Lilly, that Logan blames her for his and Lilly's break-up and Lilly's murder and that Duncan has a mystery illness. Meanwhile Lynn Echolls can't take it anymore and jumps off a bridge.

Also it seems Logan has a sister named Trina, Aaron taking Logan's tacky SUV away in the pilot ep didn't last long, there's a mystery locker at the school and Veronica has no shame about invading people's privacy. Keith's terrible investigator skills are mentioned yet again and there is a hideous, gratuitous musical number. This ep does have the show's funniest ever line as Aaron rants about Lynn's tabloid revenge on him: "What was the plan? Embarrass me? Destroy my career?... Turn me into Costner?!?" Harry Hamlin's delivery of the Costner line is hilarious.

This was okay, but Veronica was too smug and Lamb too dumb. Why does Veronica always get away with taking advantage of people, lying and treating people like trash?

Best Lines:
"I heard it took three officers and a stun gun to haul your butt out of school."

"You don't remember being in this office? You slammed a chair against the wall."

Lord of the Bling
A rap producer's daughter Yolande is missing and Keith and Veronica are on the trail. Flashbacks show that the pastel loving Veronica was once friends with Yolande, until she saw Yolande and Logan kissing and told Lilly. The hypocritical Lilly shunned Yolande and Veronica joined in, oh bitter irony.

Meanwhile Aaron mourns Lynn and recalls how mermaids were Lynn's favourite animal, Logan however thinks his mother is alive and wants Veronica to find her.

This was one of the weaker episodes with Logan's character deficiencies on full display.

Mars Vs Mars

Veronica gets indignant when her beloved teacher, the irritatingly wannbe cool dude Mr Rooks is accused of impropriety by Carrie Bishop (Leighton Meesner of 'Gossip Girl'). Veronica is unsympathetic to Carrie and sets out on a personal vendetta to prove Mr Rook's innocence while Keith works for Carrie's parents. This investigation shows Veronica at her worst. She's smug, rude, hateful and practically calls Carrie a slut. Veronica also ignores blatant evidence that Mr Rook is indeed guilty. Why does everyone take Veronica seriously as a PI? When Mr Rook is indeed revealed as a sleaze, he does a walk of shame.

In-between being vile to Carrie, Veronica justifies her actions to a returned Deputy Leo and steals Duncan's medical records. Veronica learns about Duncan's mystery illness and the secret illness of Abel Koontz. Elsewhere Logan looks for evidences that his mother is alive only to end up viewing video footage of her swan dive off the bridge. This was okayish.

Best Lines:
"She wouldn't risk being found bug eyed and bloated in some shrimp net."

"White trash walking."
