This is my favorite Logan-Veronica moment in Veronica Mars and possibly my favorite Logan moment in general.
This was the episode, the moment, where I realized that I no longer saw Logan as just the “obligatory psychotic jackass” of the show. Seeing him break down like this and get emotional, all because he just wanted his mother, got to me. I realized that he was a complex character person, full of emotion, screwed over by the people in his life, in need of actual care. I think Veronica began to realize that, too.
I just checked Ao3 and my search skills must be rusty because I haven’t found any Jessica Jones - Veronica Mars crossover.
Because that just can’t be true, right fandom?
There has to be a crossover where Veronica returns to New York for a case and stumbles into another PI who looks like the spitting image of Gia Goodman, only surlier and giving Veronica a run for her money in the department of cynicism and snark.
C’mon fandom, don’t leave me hanging! There must be a crossover fic about them right???
Where they go Spy vs Spy (or in this case Mars vs Jones) before they team up and fight crime?
Also, bonus Wallace and Mac stopping by and gawking at the surlier, alcoholic Gia Goodman lookalike (which by the way is starting to annoy Jessica– her name is JESS-EE-CA not GEE-AH).
Can you guys imagine the snark? The banter? The overlapping voiceovers?
And we all know Trish is going to embrace this weirdness with her whole heart and even remember Logan and Trina Echolls not so fondly.
1) Does this experiment really work? Does it really put off teenagers from having unprotected intercourse?
VERONICA: Ooh. Aren’t we supposed to have a shot of tequila first?
Ouch, too soon, Veronica, too soon. I don’t think it will ever be okay to joke about how you and your current honey had your first rape time together.
3) I like Clemmons a lot. Like, he knew all along that Veronica had the keys to the school, and he conveniently let her get away with it until bringing it up was benefitial to him. Like, RESPECT.
4) These two…. heart —> broken.
5) Clemmons getting Veronica into the permanent records’ archive was like letting a junkie loose in a room full of crack, right? You conniving little weasel!
6) Karma’s a bitch, Weevil. And sometimes karma will tape you to a pole.
I feel bad for him, though.
I’m just trying to figure out what kind of person my mom was.” Veronica already had plenty of hands-on experience regarding the kind of person her mom was, but I understand her trying to prove Lianne hadn’t always been such a sucky person.
8) Trina was such a fun character, I wish we’d had more Trina in the show.
9) Okay, do you need more proof that Duncan slept with Kendall? Well, since you asked so nicely, here you go…
DUNCAN: Logan’s not here. KENDALL: Loosen up, Richie Rich, okay? I’ve been in both your beds. I’ve earned the occasional drop-by.
Like, they were the only two people in there, there was no reason for her to say that she’d been in his bed other than because it was the truth and both of them knew it. More importantly, he doesn’t deny it!!!!
10) And the most epic BTVS reunion ever…
TRINA: Wait a minute. Are you, like, sleeping with my little brother? What is he, thirteen? KENDALL: Thirteen? He wishes. So, is this your much older sister I’ve heard nothing about? LOGAN: Oh yes, where are my manners? Kendall Casablancas, Trina Echolls. Rode hard, meet put away wet.

Trina: Wait a minute. Are you, like, sleeping with my little brother? What is he, thirteen?
Kendall: Thirteen? He wishes. So, is this your much older sister I’ve heard nothing about?
Logan: Oh yes, where are my manners? Kendall Casablancas, Trina Echolls. Rode hard, meet put away wet.
Trina: I’m guessing she’s the wet one. Well, I’d love to stay and chat, but I’ve got places to be.
Kendall: Where? Is there a club where you, Dedee Pfeiffer, Joey Travolta, and Melissa Rivers all meet for drinks?
Trina: There is. I don’t think you’d like it, it’s twenty-one and over. We’re hitting an after party at Chuck E. Cheese, though, if you’re free. ‘Kay, well, I need him in bed by ten p.m. sharp. He’s got school tomorrow. 'Night, all.
Logan: Well, the joke’s on her: she came over to borrow my video camera. The girl does love a good exit line.
