A LONG TIME AGO ON VERONICA MARS:
Veronica infiltrates a sorority to investigate Parker’s rape, and instead finds a secret medical marijuana farm.
The ongoing campus rapist plot boils down to frats versus feminists. The two genders!
Wallace and Logan participate in some recreation of the Stanford Prison Experiment, and unfortunately we have to endure it with them.
Weevil is back! And starts working for Keith! But then punches a suspect, so he’s fired.
Logan discovers some financial irregularities that reveal that he has a secret half-brother!
Loganica are having problems, because he likes playing poker and she likes The Arts and putting trackers on him.
Plus: some SPORTSBALL problem; a Fitzpatrick kills another Fitzpatrick; Veronica has a new job in the library SHH NO TALKING; and Keith takes a case for a hot lady.
Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate Veronica Mars season 3 episodes 2, 3 and 4: My Big Fat Wichita Linebacker Don’t Surf, and dig into such mysteries as how and why a professor would do a Stanford Prison Experiment-esque study; whether traps on your boobs are booby traps; and why the Chippendales landed on shirt closures as their sexy outfit of choice.
Content note: Veronica Mars contains heavy themes, and this episode includes storylines concerning murder, rape, violence, drugs, anti-semitism, and abusive parents.
