Veronica Mars - "The Rapes of Graff"

I will begin this week's commentary with the best line of the night:

Keith Mars to Cliff while watching video surveillance of Cliff with his head between a hookers breasts: "Is that what the kids call motor boating?"

Wow, a lot happening with this here Rape episode.

- There's an essay contest for a high school student to help demolish the old stadium. Is that even legal? Scary how Neptune treats their children.

- Dick can't write so good. HA! Is anyone surprised? Was there some sexual tension between Dick and Logan or was my picture on picture showing porn again?

- Logan's case has been dismissed! Amazing! Wait, what to do about that cutie patootie Hannah? It was great to see that Logan really actually felt something for this girl. She wasn't just a pawn...anymore. It was the whole "She's All That" scenario without the makeover and cheesy Freddie Prince Jr. stale dialogue. He actually cared for her in the end. Jason Dohring was just heartbreaking in his acting style... unreal! You wanted to hug him and just shelter him from doing anymore harm.

- Hey look, George Michael Bluth! God I miss you! HeHe, he's kinda quirky and goofy again... amkes me miss him even more. Was he not just hysterical as the outsider giving outsiders the insiders tour? Dean the Tour Guide. We can only pray he comes back next Season as Veronica's RA or something!

- Troy Vandergraff, for being such a bad boy you've never looked so good! Now, I will admit that I have a soft spot for the Ashmore boys. They are both adorable and Canadian which makes me dream of Degrassi and anytime you dream of Degrassi that's adorable and their twins so they are double adorable and I'm a 13 year old mental girl - so I'll stop now.

- Veronica was a lot more angry that I thought she would be to see Troy again. She was really harboring some nasty ass angst and it surprised me a little. But, Veronica when she's pissed is damn good Veronica! No? Come on, she had this line: "Duplicitous Evil Water..." aaahahahahaha!

- Yet another sizeable Dick - line... "Are we hanging this weekend or does that chick have your sack in an easy bake oven?" In related news: I had an easy bake oven... I know - shocker - he's gay!

- The whole 210 points, two beers in the face and then a stun gun to the solar plexis was laugh out loud black comedy! Sometimes these writers are dark dark dark!

- Sweet Jesus, Cliff is hand cuffed to a bed after having been scammed by a hooker posing as a OBGYN! Too bad she stole the Logan Echolls Murder Files!

- Veronica's over the top melodramatic breakdown (with accompanying sting orchestra) in the wig shop was inspired and just plain wrong. God the Hawaiian girl reveal was almost as good as the teary eyed build up. That wig lady behind the register has spunk. I like spunk - no comments you filthy pigs...

- Hey they are promoting the show on Tuesdays! Thank God!

- Madison is messing around with Lamb! In the Neptune Grand elevator nonetheless! She's so dirrrty - TAN do you still think Scooters wrong for wanting to hit that? Even Lamb can't resist her whory allure.

- 18! It's Legal!

- Bird Dog... I wonder if he wet himself when she tazzered him?

- Ice Man - oh the homoerotic undertones of Top Gun!

- Danny Boyd works at the demo site and had access to C4 and more than likely is setting up Terrence Cook. Why does Danny Boyd look like an ape? He scares me and Veronica better watch her ass. Those Fighting Fitzpatricks do not mess around. I seem to remember Veronica pinned down on a pool table...

Okay, so now I have a couple questions:
Rob Thomas said that in this episode we should be to point out the hint at next seasons mystery. After having watched the episode I can honestly say I don't know that I've pin-pointed it.

- Does it deal with Troy?

- Will it involve Lamb and Madison "Tap-able" Sinclair?

- Does it have to just generally deal with Hearst?

- Does it have to anything to do with Ice Man bagging 300 (CCC) points for sleeping with the Dean's wife?

- Does it have anything to do with Pi Sigma and that scary scoreboard?

- Does it have anything to do with the fact that Veronica found a picture of herself on that scoreboard that looked like it was not taken the night before because you know, she kinda looked passed out and had longer hair? (why did she not even question this picture - suspicious - she's better than that)

- Did I completely miss it?

Talk to me...


  • I heard that next year's mystery was figuring out who the rapist is...?

  • Wait, Maeby Fuenkke's analrapist or are they now leading back to Season 1 and saying Veronica really was raped. Because didn't we conclude or didn't SHE conclude that her and Duncan had sex that night consentually.

    The plot thickens. I don't know that a serial rapist is enough to carry the whole season. Maybe they in the writers room are thinking the same thing so that is why they want a 7-7-8 3 mystery season?

  • I thought the "Ice Man" thing was also a reference to Aaron's twin brother being in X-Men. Maybe I read too much into these things.

  • No, they are smart enough to have done that as well!

  • Like Sheila, I thought it was the rape. Veronica never solved who raped both girls. Maybe there are other victims or even future victims next season?

    That picture of Veronica was a bit freaky. I assumed someone snapped it on a camera phone or something. You may be onto something, though.

  • Yeah, I meant the college rapist, not VM's "rapist" (that storyline still makes me grit my teeth. But anyway.) I heard Rob say this would be next season's mystery awhile ago in an interview. (But if they go with the whole 3 mystery thing rather than 1 mystery, I'm not sure what will happen.)

    By Blogger Sheila, at 3/30/2006 04:07:00 PM  

  • I also thought there was somthing fishy when I first saw Veronica's picture. It looked as if she was laying down with her eyes glazed over.

    Another question: Is it a forgone conclusion that Dick will be pledging Pi Sigma next year?

    Now I'm torn on Lamb, on one hand he listens to Big & Rich, and on the other, well, his new campaign slogen says it all.

    By Blogger Scooter, at 3/31/2006 07:43:00 PM  

  • I think next year's mystery involved the mysterious death of Lamb. Everyone assumes it's a damaged Madison who did him in, but in the end it's Madison jealous lover, Scooter, that kills the Sheriff....dead.

    Should I have started that with a spoiler alert? Sorry.
