Veronica Mars 10/12

So you all know how I feel about Veronica Mars (VM), it is hands down the best show on tv. Last night was the third episode of the season titled, Cheatty, Cheatty, Bang, Bang. It was an amazing episode!! If you want a full recap of the episode go to TWOP, Couch Baron puts together a great summary. Every episode just blows me away, and so far this season they just get better and better. I love it! This episode VM was hired by Beaver/Cassidy Casablanca to find out if his stepmom (Charisma Carpenter) is cheating on his dad. His dad runs a very, very, succesful real estate company so Cassidy thought his step-mom was just being a gold-digger. Well Veronica ends up proving not only that Kendall (the stepmom) is cheating on Cassidy's dad (with Logan, Veronica's ex-boyfriend from the summer, OMG!!) but also that his company is a complete fraud. Mr. Casablancas is shown runing through the office telling everyone to shred all their documents and then he gets into a helicopter. So his company is completely ruined and he is broke. The sad part was that VM figured all this out and she knew her teacher has stock in the company. She told him what was going on and that he should sell the stock ASAP. He said he couldn't sell it because that would mean someone else would buy it and be out a ton of money. So he gave up his early retirement! So you think all that action would be enough for one episode right? Not with this show!! VM also finds out a guys is found beaten to death on the beach and what is written on his hand? Her name!!! On his hand it said Veronica Mars! We knew this at the end of last episode but she finds out this episode. So VM tries to figure out how this guys knows her. She goes to his work posing as his niece and collects all his stuff. He worked on cars and he has a bunch of pictures with famous people including Aaron Echolls, the most famous movie star and also the dad of Logan (VM's ex-bf). The picture has an autograph of Aaron Echolls and a note that mentions the name of a movie that Aaron did called "The Long Haul" Veronica goes to confront Logan about sleeping with Kendall Casablancas and when she is leaving she sees a movie poster for the Long Haul. The movie is about a truck driving off the side of the cliff. And guess who the stunt coordinator is? The guy who died with VM's name on his hand. So VM figures that Aaron hired this guy (his name is Curly) to rig the bus to go off the cliff. She is very upset and goes to Duncans and said all those people died because of me. She was supposed to die in the bus crash!! Oh my God, so freaking good!! Another side note in this episode Keith (VM's dad) and Alicia (Keith's gf and VM's best friend Wallace's mom) go to Chicago. When they are leaving a restuarant some guy recongizes Alicia and starts calling her Sherry and chases after her. She becomes visibly upset and gets in an elevator right before he catches her. He goes to the desk at the hotel and shows his badge and demands to know what room they are in. At the end of the episode we see this guy who was in Chicago is now in Neptune and looks up Alicia's address. Hot damn this show is good!!! There are probably a million other things that I'm forgetting to mention. Like the fight between Duncan (Vm's bf) and Logan, it was classic. I know none of this makes sense because I haven't recapped the first two episodes but this just gives you a tiny taste of the fantasticness of Veronica Mars. Please, please watch!! It is on Wed at 9 PM/ 8 PM CST and is on UPN. They do replay it on Saturday or Sunday nights so check your local listings!!
