"Another constant episode, bring on the goods."

I enjoyed this episode don't get me wrong, but sometimes I just feel like they are dragging things out a little too long. I want to know who killed Lilly. I want to know who raped Veronica. But I only feel like that when I'm not watching Veronica Mars because when its on I'm caught up in the story.

The Kanes are offering $50k to find Duncan, although he purchased a passport on eBay. Keith wants a devoice, Carmen can't remember the night of the "sex tape" (same night Veronica can't remember) & Tad says Logan gave him the GHB.

If I had to guess I would say that they are setting up for the big reveal next episode of Veronica's rape case but we will have to wait and see. This episode was again another constant delivery and what we've come to expect. I'm just waiting for them to blow the roof off but I think we'll have to wait for the season finale for the good stuff.

Review: Veronica Mars: Weapons of Class Destruction

Season 1 / Episode 18 / "Weapons of Class Destruction"
"Another well delivered episode."

Major: Duncan finds out that Veronica is investigating him and his family - he isn't happy to say the least. Duncan has taken $10,000 cash from his bank account and 'run away'. Also Veronica & Logan discover they may have feelings for each other. Minor: Veronica foils fake bomb attacks on her school with a FBI agent keen to improve his arrest record.

Another great episode with the main story interlinked with this weeks focus story of the treats at Neptune High School. But some interesting developments, it appears that Duncan has done a runner. Perhaps because of Veronica's discovery of his illness. There is also a steamy kiss between Veronica & Logan... what about Leo?

Four episodes remain, we're getting very close to answering the questions we're all been asking...

Review: Veronica Mars: Kanes and Abel's

Season 1 / Episode 17 / "Kanes and Abel's"
"Who did it?"
Click to read review - may contain spoilers

Within the first five minutes of this episode Veronica is able to track down Abel Koontz's Daugher Amelia DeLongpre with Clarence Weidman hot on her trail. Just before the papers proving that Jake Kane paid off Abel, Clarence shows up and destroys the last hope that Veronica has to prove the money trail. Keith also gives Veronica further evidence that the Kane's have been lying with his discovery of a fresh load of washing. Which is a soccer uniform...

Again Veronica picks up the pace as we come closer and closer to the discovery of who murdered Lilly Kane. Things aren't looking good for the Kane family, in particular Duncan. The side story this week almost serves as a distraction from the main case. But Veronica magic has us overlook that.

Its good to see that Veronica & Keith are now joining forces to solve this. Loosing Amelia was a setback but I'm sure Veronica will work around it. Five episodes remain...
