He Bugged Me First

Episode 1.21: A Trip to the Dentist. Original Airdate 5.03.05

"After obtaining a shocking new piece of information, Veronica is determined to get to the bottom of what happened the night she was drugged and raped, even if it means piecing together the fuzzy stories of every 09er at Neptune High. Meanwhile, Aaron throws a party for Logan, but inadvertently throws a wrench into Logan and Veronica's secret relationship."

Daniel's Thoughts:

  • Havana, Cuba.  ….in the 50s?  Nope, nope.  It’s today.  Just…old cars, I guess?
  • Duncan has a beard – great disguise.  And hey, Daddy Mars found him
  • V’s ignoring Logan….  And Weevil’s coming to her rescue.
  • And Logan is getting all racist again – not a good look for him.
  • BACK UP!
  • Poor Veronica – having to explain to Logan how his bringing GHB to the party caused her to be raped.
  • “As a rule, people who hate you aren’t that helpful” 
  • And this is where everything gets pieced together.  It’s creepy and weird but necessary.
  • So many people in this episode; so many past guest stars coming together.  That’s what I love about this show.
  • Yay, Sam Huntington, the werewolf!
  • “You can keep asking, but you’re not the fairest.” – Veronica to Madison looking in the mirror.
  • Eww, Veronica made out with Dick
  • And there was a moment, just a brief moment, when Veronica told Madison she was drugged, not drunk – Madison had an ounce of sympathy and then just like that, it was gone.
  • The look on V’s face when Daddy Mars tells her to go to her room.  She gets it though. 
  • I love that they’re showing these flashbacks from different points of view.  It wasn’t Veronica that made a pass at Dick and Casey.  It was Dick who took advantage of her.  Still gross.
  • I love when Wallace and Veronica prove their friendship to each other….but Veronica is lying here…again. 
  • Dick is such a…well dick.  This is so disgusting.
  • Beaver claims he didn’t touch Veronica – but he’s guilty of not helping her either. (And guiltier than we know right now...spoilers...)
  • Pretty much everyone at that party is guilty.
  • How does a father not know his son is allergic to shell fish? I like how we’re being reminded now about how awful Daddy Echolls is.
  • Was it Duncan?  What’s awful is that there are so many suspects – so many people it could have been.
  • Poor Duncan – Having sex with someone he thinks is his sister.  That's....really messed up.
  • And I like this follow-up.  Veronica is having the worst day – the worst realizations of her life.  And she comes to Wallace.  She seems like she’s told him everything even if we don’t see it.  And Wallace is being a great friend.  I get it.  It’s hard for Veronica to trust. And it’s nice that she slowly but surely trusting Wallace – and even showing him the files on her investigation.
  • Keith’s hiring a hookah!  And duh, we’re not stupid.  We know he didn’t go all the way to Las Vegas to do this.  He’s investigating.
  • This is about Abel Koontz.  He’s finally bringing this mystery to a head.
  • Surprise! 

  • - yes, just as awkward.  Now everyone knows that Logan and Veronica are dating so….yay. 
  • Oh man, and Duncan looks so pissed.  And Meg realizes it.  We never saw Meg and Duncan’s reunion.  Does Meg know why he left?  Did he even tell her?
  • So getting drugged was a total accident.  It wasn’t even anyone’s fault. Well I mean it was Dick’s fault for drugging the drink in the first place – but Veronica wasn’t even the intended target. 
  • OMG, do the curtains in the pool bedroom (Yes, that’s a thing) has Aaron’s picture on them.
Yep, there's Aaron & Lynn...on the curtains...

  • Oh no oh no oh no.  Logan drugged Duncan.  He didn’t know what happened and Veronica is being seriously understanding about it.  I mean on the one hand Logan is being upfront about his past.  Also on that one hand,  he seems like he's growing up.  On the other hand...he drugged his friend.
  • And V – being the ever observant one – finds a camera in the pool bedroom… wtf.  She immediately blames Logan and runs away…this must be the one with the misunderstanding. [My favorite episode of Friends! - Z]
  • And hey, there’s Lianne!  Lianne’s home….  why...

Zelda's Thoughts:

  • Time to find out who raped Veronica, with every character who's appeared in season one returning!
  • Except first Cuba. Oh hey, this is when we still weren't talking to Cuba.
  • Duncan (who looks okay with scruff?) didn't even notice Keith sitting down at the table with him. Yep he was easy for Keith to find after all.
  • Weevil providing backup to Veronica, shielding her from Logan. FRIENDS. 
  • But also everything hurts and the boys are fighting and everyone hurts.
  • Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring acting the shit out of this confrontation. I just love this cast so much.
  • "As a rule, people that hate you aren't that helpful."
  • Meg saw boys doing body shots off an unconscious Veronica, but assumed Veronica was wasted (as did pretty much everyone).
  • Aw man Celeste to Duncan. "Next time you run away, take your medication with you."
  • And now we know Madison was the one who wrote Slut on Veronica's car.
  • Madison's hair this episode is so many different colors because Flashback! 
  • "I have never done anything to you, UP TIL NOW." Seriously, Madison, do you not know the thousand ways Veronica can destroy you? Have you not been paying attention all season?
  • I'm so impressed Keith is defending Veronica to Alicia. But also he is LIVID with her.
  • "Fine. But he bugged me first."
  • omg Veronica has a Cuba poster on her wall. that's ... on topic, set dressers

  • "Veronica, what if you started looking for another job, selling clothes or something ... I just can't help think that your life would be better if you weren't working for me." // "Are you kidding me? You're the best father in the world ... I never would have gotten through this past year if it wasn't for you." // "If it wasn't for me, you wouldn't have to." The Marses, you guys.
  • And Casey tries to brush Veronica off, but she reminds him that he had a heart at one point, and she saw it.
  • Fuck Dick, Fuck Sean, and Fuck Beaver, who's watching, as they feed Veronica shots. Fuck all of them and fuck this rape culture and fuck everything.
  • Wallace! We've missed you this episode.
  • V apologizes but he reminds her "I'm not stupid. I know I wasn't just delivering a plant. I could've said no."
  • But then he also reminds her, when he finds out Logan used one of the absent slips W gave to V: "You, I do favors for. My friends, I put my butt on the line for. That guy doesn't even know my name. You wanna tell me why I'm helping him out?" Good point, Wallace. The slips were his favors to dole out, not hers. He and Logan don't know each other from Adam and Steve.
  • Aw when Veronica cites one of her favorite local deputies, we all know whom she means!
  • Seeing Beaver be the good guy and talk Dick out of raping Veronica is making me feel ill because I know what season two tells us about this night.
  • But I guess this means they decided at this point that Beaver wasn't just a Dick 2.0
  • Ahahaha I forgot about Veronica using her car to bust up Dick's board in revenge.
  • "Look, I swear to god, I didn't touch you, Veronica." LIAR LIAR BEAVER IS A RETCONNED LIAR
  • I love the Rashomon style of these flashbacks, though. Same dialogue, different speakers, depending on who's telling the story. We don't always know which version to trust (well, we know not to trust Dick's version, like, ever)
  • Beaver tells V he didn't rape her, but as she points out, he still left her there. We now know so many people knew she wasn't okay, but they left her there, vulnerable.
  • Wow. Aaron made a fancy dish ... which Logan reminds him he's deathly allergic to.
  • "Round one of How Well Do You Know Your Son: When is my birthday?" // "*huffs and blinks* February." // "Wow. Well, you got a vowel right."
  • "My eighteenth birthday, whenever that is."
  • Hi Carrie Bishop! "Do you remember Shelly's party last year? Yeah, I don't." Tag line for this episode.
  • Gasp! Carrie saw Veronica and Duncan getting it on.
  • Man, V is so hurt. You can see how much pain she's in, just looking at Duncan.
  • Ouch. He thought she was conscious and consenting.
  • "Then why did you leave me there? If it was so tender and loving, why did I wake up by myself, searching for my underwear?"
  • Ow ow ow ow and he did it thinking they were siblings? That's ... ew.
  • At least V is finally confiding in Wallace. She's told him about the rape, and now she's reading him in on the Lilly Kane files.
  • Now we're in Vegas. Keith is quite the world traveler this week.
  • Guys, my ship is making up. They're sitting on a couch and looking deeply in each other's eyes. 

  • Oh but Logan's face when she says it was Duncan. Because he knows Duncan was drugged too. Oh he didn't reveal that yet. It's hard knowing the future sometimes.
  • Ahh Keith called the escort Cheyenne because she was with Abel Koontz during Lilly's murder.
  • Uh oh....Logan and Veronica making out ... just in time for Logan's surprise party.
  • Wow and Aaron is the ONLY one to yell Surprise. It'd be more hilarious if it wasn't the most awkward ever.
  • "So is this party nine months early or three months late?"
  • On the plus, Logan basically says fuck you if you have a problem with Veronica.
  • HEY IT'S THE TITLE. A Trip to the Dentist = Madison spits in a drink and gives it to someone she doesn't like.
  • Which is how Veronica got drugged. It was malicious, but it wasn't the intended malice. The drugs were a second-hand malice from Dick attempting to drug Madison. Isn't rape culture the best? Isn't it fun how Dick is let completely off the hook for all this? Isn't it fun how Rob Thomas's love for Ryan Hansen leads to exactly no redemptive arc ever for Dick but we keep him around anyway and never demand any kind of reckoning?
  • Shit, Duncan's having a rage meltdown. You know, like all epileptics have. Because that's what epilepsy is, you guys. Rage blackouts.
  • THEY'RE DOING THE SPINNY THING AGAIN. Sorry, I really like how Logan and Veronica spin when they're together.
  • Ah, here's where Logan tells her Duncan was drugged too. But he also tells her that Duncan rescued her from the body shots (and confesses he was aiding and abetting said body shots).
  • Everything is complicated and messy and my god do the characters on this show make bad choices sometimes.
  • "I want you to trust me." / "I do."
  • Right before Veronica discovers the hidden camera in the pool house.
  • Also we have one last clue about Lilly: hiding things in the air vents.
  • And she called Weevil to rescue her from Logan again. Man, I can definitely see why some ppl ship her with Weevil.
  • Aw shit Lianne's back.

Daniel and Zelda had a post-ep discussion about this whole Veronica/Duncan encounter, now that we have full knowledge. Veronica wasn't able to consent, but Duncan didn't know. But now it turns out he wasn't able to consent. However, unlike Veronica, he wasn't blacked out; he remembers the night. Which is interesting, since HE BLACKS OUT ALL THE TIME.

Who's Roberto Nalbandion?

Episode 1.20: M.A.D. Original Airdate 4.26.05

"Veronica helps her friend Carmen plot revenge on her clingy boyfriend, after he releases a scandalous tape of her over the Internet. Meanwhile, Keith decides to track down the missing Duncan in exchange for the huge Kane reward."

Zelda's Thoughts:

  • BEAVER IS HERE. I'd be more excited except WE KNOW THE FUTURE. Also he comes off douchier here than they'll write him later.
  • And while Logan may not be contributing to the mocking of Veronica, he's not stopping it. But Veronica's in good snarky spirits and they're sharing secret looks and WE SEE YOU TWO.
  • Also yay Carmen is trying to break up with her toolbag bf and he's blackmailing her with racy footage. Isn't slut shaming fun, you guys?
  • Um so does this makeout session count as office hours, since we're in Veronica's Office? 

  • sidebar: I love how spinny their makeout sessions always are.
  • "So I was all no way and he was like yeah way." She's amazing when she's in full ditz mode.
  • So Tad is the absolute worst.
  • And homophobic. [In other words, typical teen boy from that era -D]
  • What a shitstain.
  • Meanwhile, Weevil gives us a clue to the car Duncan might have fled in, making a deal for 8% of the finders fee. But since we know what happens to the fee, does Weevil get anything?
  • Oooh it's time for the one-shot of Logan giving Veronica a mini tour slash making out with her.
  • Man, the chemistry with these two.
  • And the show is working hard to make Aaron seem reformed and kind of awkwardly nice BUT WE KNOW THE TRUTH, SHOW.
  • Seriously, Beaver feels like an entirely different character than he becomes. I guess they hadn't decided yet; just dropped him in. I wonder if they already had next season planned yet. They can't have.
  • I feel pretty not-great that Veronica's plan for mutually assured destruction with Tad is to frame him as a closeted gay man. I get that it's something he, with his homophobic ways, wouldn't like, but hey let's stop sanctioning that being gay is something to be embarrassed about, cool? Cool.
  • Poor Keith. He think he's earning Veronica's admission to Yale, not knowing Veronica sort of already waived the fee, trading finding Duncan for Weevil's release from prison.
  • "Maybe Duncan's smarter than I was giving credit." I know that feel, bro.
  • Wow wow WOW Tad. Claiming he loves Carmen while blackmailing her into not dumping him. "You made me do it! And look, if you make me do it again -"
  • Awww Logan brought Veronica her car. TRUE LOVE.
  • Even if it's just a light dose, I always love when Cliff McCormack shows up. He is a snarky delight.
  • Aw, Keith and Alicia are taking ballroom dancing classes. This is too cute.
  • Oh lord Shenanigans! That that dude brought in a popsicle from home for the sole purpose of mocking Carmen with it, and managed to keep it UNWRAPPED in his back pocket until he saw her ... and that when he did, it was unmelted and not covered in lint. So many shenanigans, you guys.
  • And here we see another foil to Veronica, much like Meg was. Veronica's impulse is for revenge, but Carmen recognizes it wouldn't actually make her feel better.
  • Oh shiiiiiiiiit I forgot that the video of Carmen actually sets Veronica on her mission for the next episode - find out who drugged and raped her - because it was the same night.
  • Hahahaha and now Mac wants her percent of the bounty too. Veronica's gonna disappoint so many people.
  • Geeeeez Wiedman is threatening Alicia to break up with Keith or she might lose her job. And then she calls him Mr. Weed and it's amazing.
  • Except he found the bug Veronica asked Wallace to plant.
  • I see Weevil got his trademarked revenge on Tad, duct taping him to the flagpole.
  • shit shit shit shit Tad got the drugs from Logan shit shit shit
  • everything hurrrrrrrtssssssssssss
  • Interesting, since the show ends with Logan looking disappointed and sad, stood up for his yachting date with Veronica, and not with his having any mien of malevolence or menace, the show is definitely signalling that he's not actually going to be the villain, at least not of what happened the night of Shelly Pomeroy's party.

Daniel's Thoughts:

  • Hey, it’s Beaver!
  • Aww, Veronica and Logan doing the “I Hate You” banter but giving each other SECRET LOOKS OF LOVE.
  • Mystery of the week:  Bad boyfriend blackmailing his girlfriend into staying with her with a dumb video.
  • Logan & Veronica making out in her "office." Respect at work, Veronica!
  • I dunno. There are so many flaws in this plan.  Tad’s phone wasn’t even on.  He can easily prove that to his teacher if he wanted to.  Even if the phone was on, he could have shown that there were no missed calls.  It’s just…such a stretch.
  • “I volunteered to separate the recycling from the cafeteria trash”  Seriously?  And her teacher bought this terrible excuse?
  • “Hi…Miss Fanell…”, she said through gritted teeth.
  • Mac!
  • Ugh, this “who’s gayer” back and forth argument between teenage boys is the worst.
  • Weevil “We’re always owing each other favors aren’t we?” – That’s what our stats say!
  • Logan’s already giving her rides – that’s boyfriend responsibilities!
  • Oops.  Veronica/Logan caught by Aaron.
  • Oh man, Beaver’s streaked hair.
  • They’re tricking us into thinking Aaron’s becoming a cool dad…  Just wait.
  • I hate seeing Veronica stuck in a car with Aaron, knowing what we know.
  • I kinda hate this.  Because the producers/writers think they’re being witty here.  But all it’s doing is making me uncomfortable – using the only gay kid in school (that we know of yet) to get faked compromising photos/video to blackmail someone by making him think they’ll tell the world he’s gay.  Gay as blackmail.  GAY AS BLACKMAIL.  It’s fucked.  It works because it’s fucked.  But no one’s thinking about the actual gay kid. 
  • Yeah, I’m kinda over this.
  • Let’s concentrate on Logan & Veronica – because it’ll be years before we see a good healthy gay relationship on tv.  Might as well ship the heterosexuals. [Hey. - Willow & Tara.]
  • Cliff!
  • Keith and Alicia also make a cute couple.  It’s just nice to see Keith happy.
  • Well he released it anyway.  That’s actually unexpected.   And Carmen takes the high road.
  • Mac and Keith meet!
  • Clarence Wiedman telling Alicia who she can and can’t date.  NOT COOL KANE SOFTWARE.  That’s her personal life!
  • Oh no.  Logan Echolls is the one that gave Tad the GHB.  A CROSS TO BEAR FOR LOGAN AND VERONICA? SAY IT AIN’T SO.
  • Also, final joke/pay-back? A tattoo that says Seth’s name that everyone will see.  HAHA YOU ARE GAY THAT IS FUNNY.
  • Done.

Favorite Lines:
Zelda: "Tardy excuse slips. Date-stamped. Untraceable. I know people." - Veronica
Daniel: Logan: "What, like will we ever hang at the mall and hold hands and buy each other teddy bears with hearts that say 'I wuv you bear-y much'?"  Veronica: "Yes, exactly that. Except I want my bear won through some sort of demonstration of ring tossing ability."

It Was Heartfelt Crappy

Episode 1.19: Hot Dogs. Original Airdate 4.19.05

"When awkward classmate Mandy asks Veronica to help her find her missing dog, a much larger scheme is exposed as they follow the trail. Meanwhile, Logan's sister Trina begs her father to play a role in her new boyfriend's movie, while Logan suspects that Trina is hiding something."

Daniel's Thoughts:

  • Hey, it’s Weevil.  Haven’t seen him in a while.
  • Veronica’s tutoring him in math – it’s nice that she’s doing him a favor.
  • For a private conversation, word about Veronica’s accusation (which wasn’t really an accusation) got around fast.  I imagine Duncan told Logan – but I feel like Logan wouldn’t tell anyone.  Who knows?
  • Logan’s cool.  He points to the ceiling and the bell rings.  How did he do that?  Not gonna lie, I’ve done the same with my automatic doors at work.
  • Poor Mandy.  She just wants her dog back.  I’m glad Veronica is sympathetic enough to help her.
  • Veronica to Leo: “How are you?” CAN’T YOU TELL BY THAT SMILE?
  • I…I dunno.  Alyson Hannigan is just so miscast in this role.   It’s obvious she was only given it riding the coattails of Buffy.
  • “Coolest girl in Neptune High.”  It’s nice when people reveal their awe of Veronica
  • I’m glad Veronica stood up for Mandy but telling her she needs to stand up for herself is not cool.  Not everyone can do that, V.
  • I’m glad Back-Up is in this episode. All doggie-themed episodes should have Back-Up.
  • “I know you think I hate you but I don’t.  I just can’t stand to look at you.”
  • A long time ago, Mrs. Kane and Keith used to be friends.
  • Is Duncan in Australia?  Nope, not yet.
  • And Logan.  As much as he hates his sister, he still wants to protect her.
  • “No discussing parental PDA at lunch”
  • So many cute dogs in this episode!
  • “Sure, let’s play dirty charades with the Gringa”
  • This episode is very dirtily witty. “Always getting out of the back of some dude’s van.”
  • The guy who plays Dylan is kinda unrecognizable.  He later goes on to play Carlos Rivera on General Hospital. 

  • It’s nice that Aaron is protecting his daughter by kicking this kid’s ass – but he’s still responsible for doing the same things to Logan as he’s accusing his own father of doing to him, so.  Remember the belt?
  • “Do you think Lilly loved Weevil?”  Wow, shit – deep, out-of-the-blue question from Logan.
  • Hey, more kissing!  Glad it’s not just a one-off.  Both Veronica and Logan are confused and delighted and it’s all really cool.
  • Oh no.  I don’t like when Leo loses that smile.  And the only thing that can make that happen is Veronica breaking up with him.  I’m glad she’s being honest with him, though.  She even told him what happened with Logan.
  • “That’s where we keep the dogs with serious contagious diseases.”  That’s a TERRIBLE excuse.
  • Mandy tazes Hans like 5 times.  Once is enough to cause serious damage, though I guess not necessarily on someone who’s 18, but still.  It’s more dangerous than people think.
  • “Can I ask you a weird question?” “Do you ask any other kind of questions?”
  • Aww, Chester/Mandy reunion.

Zelda's Thoughts:

  • The previouslies are reminding us that Veronica made out with two guys last ep
  • She should ... probably do something about that.
  • Awww she's tutoring Weevil. Welcome back, Weevil! We missed you.
  • "He helped me out in the past, I'm just returning the favor." VERONICA RETURNS FAVORS
  • Aw awkward Mandy is reading Judy Blume. Of course she is.
  • Logan and Veronica, meaningful looks, trying not to smile, talking about Duncan's disappearance, everything is awkward
  • just my opinion
  • "You're Veronica Mars, right?" // "Sometimes." It's a joke because of all her aliases. 
  • hahaha "Do I have to tip you over or are you gonna spill it on your own?"
  • Oops Weevil broke into the Kane house. 
  • See, this is the danger with Veronica talking about the case with people who loved Lilly. They alllllll have intense revenge streaks, several of them violent.
  • Aaron Echolls reading Siddhartha. snort
  • Aaron was removed from Lynn's will. Good.
  • Aw the animal shelter guy declares Veronica Mars to be the coolest girl at Neptune High. Also his name is Hans. Also doesn't he turn out to be the bad guy?
  • God I love Logan sometimes. "Would you look at that? There was a string attached to my poptart!"

  • So every shot in the Echolls household this episode has had someone cleaning/working in the background.
  • Veronica Mars, human lightning. Tearing that showerbag [editor's note: look up the french word for shower if you want to see why Zelda likes this as an insult] who's trolling Mandy a new one. But she's not just a marshmallow, she yells at Mandy too, telling her to demand respect.
  • Gasp! Veronica has detected A Pattern. It's not just Chester. Other dogs are missing.
  • Oops Celeste Kane has arrived for a reckoning. But Veronica has ammunition of her own.
  • "I know you think I hate you, but I don't. I just can't stand to look at you." Cool, totally cool.
  • Oops Trina's got a limp and the telltale indoor sunglasses of Abuse Victim
  • And Logan flips from slut shaming to angry protective Echolls
  • Wow Hans is a showerbag. "How old are you, anyway, Hans?" // "18, why?" // "Community soap."
  • Awwww Weevil's out of jail!
  • It's actually pretty interesting, this scene with Aaron and Trina. He sees her putting on the makeup to cover her black eye, comments on it obliquely but doesn't press it. Maybe, being part of an abusive cycle himself, he knows the signs. And the degree of his psychopathy is that he's not gonna go psycho just yet. He'll bank that anger until he can destroy Dylan in person.
  • GUYS THIS WAS OUR CLUE IF WE WEREN'T PICKING IT UP BEFORE. Aaron Echolls is patient, violent, and confident enough in his untouchability that he feels no qualms about beating the absolute shit out of someone.
  • And all while Dean Martin sings to us about Amore.
  • And then he casually greets Logan. "Oh hey, son, how was school?"
  • And at least she's doing right by Leo and breaking up with him rather than cheating on him.
  • But at least it's not an abuse of his position like some of the favors she asks - here he gets to make a bust. "Please, resist arrest. Please."
  • "Can I ask you kind of a weird question?" // "Do you ask any other kinds of questions?"
  • ahhhhhhhhhh my feeeeeeelings Keith is conducting his own DNA test, after Veronica shredded the one she had done without reading it.
  • Awww Mandy got her dog Chester back!


Backup: *runs and tackles dog guy*
Daniel: (laughing, fondly) He just wants kisses.

Veronica: Would it be weird for me to start my own drinking game? Like I have to do a shot every time someone asks for my help?
Zelda: Pot, kettle.

Favorite Lines:

Daniel: "I know you think I hate you, but I don't. I just can't stand to look at you." - Celeste Kane
Zelda: "If I want you to speak, I'll wave a snausage over your nose. If you use Mandy again to try to convince yourself that you're not a loser, I will ruin your life." - Veronica
