When it Rains, it Pours on 'Mars'

I knew Veronica's "I'm pregnant" scene from the promo was just a red herring to get everyone talking and tuning in for last night's episode. I never believe promos because I have been misled by far too many in the past. On the plus side, if the little "I'm pregnant" bit got more people to tune in last night, then I'm all for deceptive advertising! And for the record, I'm so glad that they didn't write a Veronica pregnancy drama into the show (not that I thought they would -- I have faith in the fine folks at Veronica Mars). Anyway, Logan has gone and done it again by messing things up with Veronica. OK, so they were on a break, but it doesn't excuse his impulse to jump Madison Sinclair of all people! He knows how much Veronica hates her (and for good reason). I loved the way that Dick was a little hurt by it as well even though he played it off to Veronica. Perhaps Veronica overreacted a bit when she said that this indiscretion with Madison is something that she doesn't think she will be able to forgive, but the point is, Logan screwed up and he needs to realize it and why. I do think that she'll be able to get past it some day, just not one anytime soon. Bring on Piz.

Veronica didn't have a lot of time to sit and commiserate over her heartbreak because she was busy trying to figure out who slipped the abortion pill RU486 into a coed's drink. Remember the days when all you had to worry about were date rape drugs? Well, now you have to worry about the unhappy father-to-be slipping you abortion pills so he can shrug off the responsibilities that impending parenthood brings! But wait -- the two possible daddies are in the clear because it turns out that Bonnie's roommate slipped her the pill. She was worried about her best friend because she didn't want her to be tied down to someone for the rest of her life. Too bad she forgot to consult the mommy-to-be. Now this, Veronica, is something that you can never forgive. Can you imagine how violated and upset you would be even if you weren't sure that you were ready to have a child?!! Someone else made that decision for Bonnie. The good news is, the entire experience taught Veronica that anger does nothing to help you heal, and thus, Madison's new Benz was saved from the cubing machine.
