I was just complaining earlier this week about how boring the whole subplot with Wallace's mom being followed by a mystery man seemed. I can't remember who I was talking to at the time, but I'd really like to take that back now... please? The Neil guy is really Wallace's father? And I'd like to say that Rob Thomas (the VM godfather not the Matchbox 20 guy) is truly an honest man of his word. In his Q&A the other day, he promised that Wallace's little bro would be making a return appearance soon, and lo and behold there he was. Now the question is, is he Wallace's half brother, or is Mr. Chicago cop his papa, too? Oh, and Wallace's new gal pal: I've got a feeling that the self-centered New Yorker is gonna stomp all over his little heart. And he even tried to turn down the persistent Ms. Mars to swap spit with the hottie, but honey, in Wallace's world, money talks. I really kinda felt bad for the guy Veronica was investigating. He seemed like a nice enough fella, even if he was randomly friends with Nic Cage. I understood why Veronica took the gig, even before she said, "The only way I'd ever make two grand a week at the hut is if they installed a pole." She's gotta prove something to Keith. The sheriff may see everything, like the fact that his daughter spent the night with her boyfriend, but he's kind of blind to her inherited sleuthing skills. It's almost like Inspector Gadget and Penny, but at least Keith isn't quite so bumbling and inept. It would be cool if he had an umbrella hat though. Hey, at least he's trying, which is more than Veronica can really say for most of the men in her life. Duncan is either feeling guilty about Meg or still has feelings for the comatose girl who, pre-accident, was clearly subject to her parents' controlling nature, and seems not to care that it is causing a slow-growing rift with his current girlfriend. Logan is being all deliciously wicked with his tormenting of his perky blonde ex and throwing a life's-short party. Loved his mustache twirling and his assumption that if Veronica wanted something from him, it was sex. And Weevil and his posse seemed to be more interested in nosing around in Veronica's business than actually helping her. Their encounter did lead to the line of the night when Veronica wittily inquired about his choice in bling: "What's up with the hoops? If I rub your head, do I get three wishes?"
