Veronica Mars’ Halloween Treat

Veronica Mars sure knows how to celebrate Halloween. She didn’t exactly spend the fright-filled night “rolling ‘Tweeners for chocolate,” but she did manage to solve a robbery, exonerate Evil Weevil and finally get on Sheriff Lamb’s good side. Yep, it’s all in a day’s work for the effective detective.

Tuesday’s episode had so many delicious moments, but one of the best was when that publicity-hog Sheriff Lamb broke into The Robot. Hello 1980s! Who knew the sheriff could move like that? Meanwhile, my Wallace turned into a cheater, and Cliff proved he should chuck that law license and do voiceovers for the Olive Garden. The Hearst rape mystery continued, and dare I say it, actually got interesting. There were also some greet lines, including this gem from Veronica commenting about the case, “Hello, square one. Nice to see you again.”

For those of you confused as to what Logan and Veronica were dressed as for Halloween, apparently it was the musical group The White Stripes. But don’t worry if you didn’t get it. I didn’t either. We can’t all be cool kids. (When I first spotted that wig on Logan, I though he was posing as Shaggy from Scooby Doo.)

Kudos to the writers for having Keith Mars use the name Adrian Monk, one of my other favorite TV detectives, during the break-in scheme. And thank you Rob Thomas for pulling out Johnny Cash’s Busted to accompany the scene where the criminals got their comeuppance. Nice.

I thought they were Jughead and Veronica from the Archie comics...
