** Similarly, in an episode 4 flashback, he tells at Duncan for spraying champagne on him because he's wearing his dad's tux...



** [[spoiler: Made worse when you consider that his mother was abusive towards him, like the episode suggests. Add in Gia describing him as weird and ignoring him most of the time and his classmates likely bulling him for being weird and having a child molester as a dad (the show made it very clear with Veronica and Jackie that your parent's social status determines your popularity in Neptune) and you end up with a very familiar sounding backstory… shy kid with an abusive parent, uncaring (at least) older sibling, parental abandonment (when Woody leaves the country), molested, and bullied by his peers.]]

* While Dick showing up on Logan's doorstep in "Welcome Wagon" admitting he 'messed up bad' seems to have been included as a red herring that goes nowhere for the Hearst rapist arc, it also comes after Dick seeing Mac for the first time since [[Cassidy's death.]] That in mind, him breaking down there can easil be him for the first time acknowledging his part in [[spoiler: how he treated Cassidy, blaming himself for how his brother ended up.]]

* Hit me today on ''VeronicaMars'' season two - in the fifth episode, Lamb accuses Keith of having indirectly caused the bus crash by not investigating something the scapegoat/current suspect did properly (I think it was drink driving). A few weeks after seeing the finale, I think: "Wait, that was irony. Lamb's indirectly responsible for the crash; if he had investigated [[spoiler:Veronica's rape properly, Cassidy]] could very well have been in prison before this ever happened." I think I was kinda slow. - {{Tropers/emmaliza}}

* In the ''VeronicaMars'' season 1 finale, "Leave It To Beaver", the bad guy's appearance [[spoiler: in the back seat of Veronica's car is not only creepy/terrifying in its own right, but add in the fact that the man killed Lilly, who he had been having a sexual relationship with, without batting an eyelid, and the fact Veronica is not only about to ruin his life by turning him in but that she is a LOT like Lilly both in appearance and the situation (about to ruin him), and you realize that, alone and miles from anyone, he could have done anything to her in the dark and got away with it. ANYTHING.]] Also, when he has [[spoiler: trapped her in the fridge the audience's first reaction is that he's trying to scare her and doing a very good job of it - the reality is that he could have buried her alive or let her die of asphyxiation, and honestly, he wouldn't have let her out even if she had told him where all the tapes were.]]

* [[{{WMG}} Probably a bit of a reach]], but Logan arrives at the airport in his Navy dress whites, having caught the plane right after a meeting with some members of the JAG Corps (Navy lawyers). This could be a ShoutOut to {{Series/JAG}}, which introduced the main characters, a pair of Navy JAG lawyers, as they arrived aboard a carrier in their dress whites (in their case, because they had to leave to catch a plane on short notice while attending an embassy party). Veronica's [[GoodLookingPrivates feelings on the matter]] mirror a claim Harm makes about "Dress Whites and Gold Wings".

* Also in the film, [[spoiler:Weevil returns to his old ways as a biker. However, maybe it's to help reform the PCHers, who, as seen in the film, are ''clearly'' as out of control as the 09ers and the police. He may even be working ''with'' Veronica.]]

* From the BigDamnMovie: Logan is a Navy pilot (though this only really gets brought up three times total, and seems mainly an excuse to [[GoodLookingPrivates put him in dress whites]]). Given checkered past, reputation for a hairtrigger temper, and all the assorted drama surrounding his girlfriend's murder and his wrongful accusation of it, it seems pretty likely he won't have a long career in the military, if only because they might want to cut him loose before he can tarnish the service's image further, even before you consider what sort of trouble Veronica may get into while associated with him.

* Rodney Goodman [[spoiler: is likely also an abuse victim.]] In the season 2 episode, "Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner", Veronica is investigating to see which boy Meg babysat for was being abused, based on information from emails she had sent to Child Protective Services. The parents Veronica encounters seem overly strict or otherwise a bit off, and she states that they are all unsettling enough to be suspects, but does not see or find proof of abuse. When it is revealed that it was not a boy, but [[spoiler: Meg's little sister, Grace]] who Meg was talking about in her emails to CPS as the abuse victim, the other children are not mentioned again. Veronica and the viewer assume that while the parents were very strict about schedules and spilled water, there is not actual abuse going on in those households. However, at the end of the season, when it is revealed that [[spoiler: Woody Goodman had molested Cassidy Casablancas and other boys,]] you realize that [[spoiler: Woody]] may have also abused [[spoiler: his own son]] in the same way. Rodney is starkly different from Gia. Where Gia is bubbly and outgoing, almost ditzy, Rodney is shy and withdrawn. Gia says that he is "sweet but kind of weird." Rodney's panic and nervousness over spilling water are similar to [[spoiler: Grace's ]] behavior, when Veronica and Duncan find her in the closet. It is not until later that you realize Rodney is not afraid of his mother but of [[spoiler: Woody]].
