Veronica Mars: There's Got to be a Morning After Pill

Don't worry. Despite yet another misleading trailer Veronica is definitely not pregnant. But, according to Weevil, she might be, "going soft." More on that later.

And neither is Bonnie (remember Tim the creepy TA with a bad wig? yeah, his girlfriend.) thanks to some creep slipping her RU486, a.k.a. the 'abortion pill.' Add a televangelist father and Dick as the hyper-insensitive possible daddy and you have a solid mini-mystery the audience can actually care about, a step up from last week if I do say so myself.

Oh and Veronica and Logan broke up. Aaagain. This time turning Veronica into a sleep-deprived semi-schizophrenic with visions of Madison dancing in her head...dancing in bed with Logan, that is. "This is something I'm never getting over," says Veronica. Really? Are you sure? I feel like I've heard that one before, V. But who knows, maybe this break up will last more than one episode.

After a Gollum/Smoegal-esque internal battle, she decides to give Weevil a little project: steal and cube Madison's brand new convertible, just his specialty. Oh Veronica and her sweet revenge plans. Then there's Logan. Scruffy, kicked puppy dog Logan. Why don't you get drunk, messy and belligerent and leave Veronica voicemails. That's the way to win her back. Will this self-proclaimed chronic screw up ever stop this vicious cycle?

But back to Ms. Bonnie Bible. So, Bonnie, Tim takes care of you, does he? Maybe he also "took care" of the pregnancy (what a euphemism)? Or was it the work of Daddy's henchmen, trying to avoid a Ted Haggard-style scandal? Perhaps Dick recruited his flavor of the week to buy the pill so he didn't have to pay for an abortion? No, no, it was the Bible-loving, Tim-hating roommate (also, bad hair. CW- you need better stylists) trying to protect her best friend from undeserving potential fathers by adding some RU486 to Bonnie's prenatal vitamins. Riiiight.

During the investigation not only does Keith get a thorough freak out when he's sent surveillance photos (no, not from Clarence Weedman) of Veronica walking out of the Neptune Women's Clinic, but Veronica finds out, after an impressive hissy fit to get into his office, that she and TA Tim have quite a bit in common. That is, they both like to keep secret files on their computer about supposedly closed investigations. Now, with three crazy detective minds on the case, Dean O'Dell's murder is sure to be solved, although I still have no idea who the culprit could be, but I'm still not convinced little Mindy is innocent in all this. And if I had to guess, I'd say meth head ex-husband Steve is just a botoxed/crazy-eyebrowed red herring. I just hope Mindy's "Everything is awesome" son makes another appearance. So good.

In the end, Veronica opted against the car-crushing payback. Did the pastor's little forgiveness speech really get to her? Is the heartbreak softening her edge? You know what they say, that Veronica Mars, she's a marshmallow.
