Wow. A Wallace-centric episode and Percy Daggs III
certainly didn’t disappoint. The usual comic-relief sidekick got a chance to show off his acting range with the deeply angry emotions of his mother's betrayal. And he got to show off his vocal range by singing “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” He’s actually got a pretty decent voice. But his assessment of his one-way relationship with Veronica was painful and a little bit true. The hurt in his voice when he told his best friend that “It’s your world, we just live in it” was palpable and brutally honest. Thankfully, his loyal pal came to her senses and didn’t try and get payback against annoying Jackie, out of respect for Wallace. When the be-yatch Jackie showed up at the homecoming dance with Logan, the pint-size detective spun out of control with emotion over the fact that this woman would hurt her friend Wallace. Too bad Jackie was the one with the words that stabbed like a knife about Veronica wanting every man to find her the center of attention. I think Jackie was way
off base. If Veronica wanted a guy who was singularly devoted to her, she could get random dude Douglas, who nominated her for homecoming court by announcing that “She’s badass, she’s smokin’ hot and overall nice to come home to.” I just hope that Wallace and Veronica are able to reconcile and reconnect before that kinda-shady dude who is his biological dad takes him way far out of Neptune, or Veronica gets grounded for life by her da d for bugging the sheriff’s office. I wouldn’t blame Keith if he did ground her; with his chances at regaining his public office dwindling and his girlfriend pretty much ditching him for being a snoop (hello — he’s a detective — it comes with the territory), he might need some constant comfort from his adoring daughter. And was Logan
the boyfriend that Lilly wanted Veronica to stay away from? Or was it Weevil? Or even Mr. Echolls? It’s hard to tell, and while I don’t really want to speak ill of the dead, Lilly kinda got around. I mean Veronica saw Lilly’s ghost right before the bus crash and moments before she spotted Weevil at the gas station. So did Weevil have something to do with the crash? Or it could still be Logan who skipped out on the field trip for a booty call… it might seriously cause me pain if it is either of them. Let’s hope it was just sleazy Aaron Echolls paying someone from prison to off the girl who helped put him behind bars, but that just seems too obvious.
