asks Veronica about Duncan and tells her he has no idea where he might be. Logan doesn’t mention the awkward kiss they shared last episode, so Veronica figures he’s just going to pretend it never happened and she resolves to do the same. She sees Mandy putting up posters about Chester and Mandy asks if she can hire Veronica to find her missing pooch. Veronica says dogs aren’t really her thing, but we all know she’s a marshmallow at heart, so she offers to help. Wallace comes along to tell Veronica some shocking news: Weevil broke into the Kane house last night and was caught in Lilly’s bedroom.

Veronica goes to the police station to see Weevil. She asks Leo (her kinda sorta boyfriend, who she hasn’t called in a couple days) what Weevil had on

Trina tries to talk him into appearing in some crap fest her current boyfriend (Dylan) is producing. Aaron tells her he was serious about quitting acting and that he wants to devote himself to his family. Logan overhears that and doesn’t buy it for a second. Their lawyer comes by with Lynn’s will and it turns out she amended it not long ago and cut Aaron out completely. (Probably after she found out he’d been cheating on her like crazy.) Lynn left her art collection and personal stuff (as well as an investment account worth $115,000) to Logan. Trina asks if she was cut out too, but it turns out she was never in to begin with.

Veronica and Mandy go to the dog pound to hand out a flyer and ask about Chester. They haven’t seen him, but one of the workers (Hans) recognizes Veronica as a kick-ass detective. Hans says he’ll keep an eye out for Chester.

stealing dogs, returning some for big money, and dumping the less valuable ones, like Chester. She takes a poster that offers a $100 reward for a missing spaniel and changes it to $1000. While she’s working, Celeste Kane comes in and starts giving her shit, blaming Veronica for Duncan taking off. Veronica says she didn’t tell Duncan all the crazy shit Celeste has done and Celeste insists she doesn’t have anything against Veronica, she’s just a reminder of how screwed up her own life is.

Keith comes in and tells Celeste to get lost, and she says he isn’t much of a detective if he couldn’t see his wife was screwing around on him. Veronica stops Celeste on the way out and says she might have an idea where Duncan is and she’ll help find him if Celeste drops the charges against Weevil. Even

starts chewing on his shoe. Veronica gets Backup back on his leash and apologizes, but in the confusion she managed to steal back the $1000 and plant a tracker on the guy. She follows him to Neptune’s equivalent of a Wal-Mart parking lot, where a bunch of Hispanic dudes are hanging out. When he sees her, he starts freaking out (in Spanish) and accuses her of stealing his money. She soon finds herself surrounded by an irate crowd.

Once she calms them down (with an air horn),Veronica establishes that someone in a white van pays them to return dogs to their owners. Because

Veronica accuses him of kidnapping dogs from rich people to collect rewards. She says when he found out Mandy was poor (and that Veronica was sniffing around), he killed Chester and dumped him. Hans denies everything and tells her to get lost. She runs into Weevil, who thanks her for getting him released from jail. At the office, Logan comes by to ask Veronica to help track down Dylan. Once she hears what he did to Trina, Veronica’s eager to help.

At home, Trina’s putting on makeup to (unsuccessfully) hide her bruises when Aaron comes in. She asks him again about appearing in Dylan’s movie, comparing it to Travolta’s comeback role in Pulp Fiction. That gets Aaron’s attention and he tells her to invite Dylan over for dinner. At the

obviously an asshole too, so I’m not sure who to cheer for here.) Logan drags Dylan out to his car and sees him off, then asks Veronica about Weevil and Lilly. Logan knew Lilly liked guys and says Lilly told him her parents loved Duncan and tolerated her. She figured if they were going to ignore her anyway, she might as well have fun pissing them off, which Weevil would be great for. Logan says he’s relieved he doesn’t have to feel guilty about moving on, then he lays a big smooch on Veronica. She’s into it, just like last time, but says they should keep things quiet while they figure out their feelings.

In Logan’s car, Veronica has a memory of Lilly showing her a “spy pen” that had a secret compartment for hiding messages. Later, Veronica asks Mandy if she wants to go to the pound; Veronica lays out her theory about the dog-napping and Mandy says she’s in. Veronica stops by the police

been stalking her and sending threatening letters. Keith says Weevil’s alibi was airtight and shows her the files (which he kept in his closet in a box marked “Playboys” … hey it worked, Veronica never went near it). Veronica mentions the new timeline of he murder, but Keith points out that the Kane’s wouldn’t have faked the timeline and their own alibis to protect Weevil. Mandy gets Chester back from the people who bought him. At school, Veronica asks about the pen and Weevil gives it to her, but there’s no message hidden inside. She asks if there was one and Weevil says if he told her, it wouldn’t really be a secret.
