First thing first. What was the deal with Veronica’s new computer buddy Max? We all know when VERONICA MARS needs computer help, she goes to her best friend MAC (She isn’t named after the world’s greatest computer company for nothing?!).
That said, I thoroughly enjoyed last night’s episode and am thrilled that the central mystery is finally being woven a little tighter into each episode. While it’s too early to legitimately guess who’s behind the rapes, I’m going to take a shot anyway. Of course if I’m wrong, I’ll be deleting this post and denying that I ever said anything.
So here it goes, the TV Addict’s official leading suspect is Veronica’s criminology professor and apparently morally bankrupt mentor Professor Landry. Think about it. The man knows enough about crime to cover his tracks, seems to have a thing for young college co-eds (Veronica) and clearly has no qualms about having an affair with a married woman (hence the morally bankrupt aspect). Landry is also played by a recognizable guest star (Patrick Fabian) along the same lines as last season’s Mark Foley wannabe Mayor Woody Goodman (Steve Guttenberg).
While on the subject of affairs, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Keith Mars — Veronica’s Dad. I’m quite frankly shocked that a man who’s had his own share of marital woes and heartache would partake in affair with a married woman (Guest star Laura San Giacomo). No doubt the road ahead will be interesting for Keith. Of course, truth be told, I should have seen this coming. Actor Enrico Colantoni said so himself in a recent interview with the TV addict when talking about his hopes for season 3.
“I want to see him falter, make mistakes, bend the rules, not be so perfect. Really I want to see Keith be more human. Right now he is just a good dad. Good dads make mistakes and pay the consequences.”
I wonder what the consequences will be for Keith when Harmony’s husband discovers their affair?
