Wow another topic which I haven't seen tackled in a TV show before, two babies being switched at birth and finding out 16 years later. I thought hard about previous episodes to see if this was hinted at before. Because I know that Rob Thomas likes to sneak clues in, which make sense later. We've only seen Mac once before in the Purity Test episode. Which she didn't mention anything about her family. This really hit home for Veronica (seeing she is unsure about her own birth father) and once we were informed of Veronica's findings its was painfully obvious that Mac is the odd one out in her family.

We also see the introduction of Deputy Leo D'Amato, who through great writing comes across as funny and charming. Veronica does what she needs to do to get closer to solving Lilly's case and of course Leo finds out and this puts an end to this would-be romance.

I'm glad that Veronica can put the big issues out of her mind, like her last boyfriend Troy, or that fact that she has made out with her maybe brother...

As always the episode is extremely well written with nothing being overlooked and we don't discover the identity of the killer until the closing scenes.

There is really nothing not to like about Veronica Mars!
