** Correct, and WordOfGod says that the video was leaked by none other than Deputy Don Lamb, in a successful effort to steal Keith's job.

* WordOfGod says that the video was leaked by none other than Deputy Don Lamb, in a successful effort to steal Keith's job. I assume the video was originally shot for evidence purposes, similar to crime scene photographs.

* There's also the simple fact that Lianne remembers being a teenager - even with the so-called 'good kids,' which Duncan and Veronica were considered to be, when a parent tells you 'you can't date this person because I said so,' that's pretty much a cue to do exactly what you've been told not to. Her choices amounted to a) tell Veronica, which likely means Keith finding out as well, damaging her marriage, and possibly Duncan learning as well, damaging the Kanes, so too much collateral damage, b) not tell Veronica, but still demand she break up with Duncan, which likely would involve them staying together in secret, and possibly even engaging in riskier activities like sleeping together, or c) suck it up and stay quiet and hope the teenage relationship runs its course naturally. She opts for choice C.

What was the deal with Gia's mom? It's implied that she's vaguely abusive towards Gia's brother, but do they ever go more in depth on that?

*** Not quite, thatís kind of a Hollywood stereotype, according to [[http://www.aic.gov.au/publications/current%20series/tandi/421-440/tandi440.html this]] study made by the Australian government over a 45 years period even when sexual abuse victims are more likely to suffer sexual abuse latter on their lives, they are not more likely to be abusers themselves than the control group (yet they do are more likely to have problems with the law for other kinds of crimes). But I see your point.

** Keith was in the hospital after catching on fire while saving Veronica, and Veronica was handling Logan's murder drama, so it probably wasn't discovered until it was too late. She disappeared pretty well before, and now she has the experience to do it better.

** It's not actually shown where he was shot; you just see the gun, the blood spatter, then the killer.
++ The lawyer is not referring to Aaron's death, rather to the bus bomber's death from throwing himself off of the roof. Recall the life insurance policy and its beneficiary--hence the lawyer stating to the beneficiary that it is a "wash" because the policy doesn't pay out for suicide.
*** That's the ''real'' headscratcher here: '''was Aaron's death even investigated at all?''' The lack of follow-up seems to imply that it was ruled a suicide even though that was never actually mentioned on the show, but as the troper above mentions, from the blood spatter it's obvious he was shot in the back of the head, which immediately points to homicide. Even if Sheriff Lamb and his team were incompetent enough to not notice that, considering there is an arc about an apparent suicide that turned out to be a murder in the next season, it just reeks of lazy writing. And even if Aaron had managed to turn his head at the last second or something, making it seem more suicide-like, are we supposed to assume that all the main characters, ''including his own son who had already lost one parent recently'', simply bought the suicide explanation, waving it off with nothing more than a "well, he was an asshole, so good riddance"? Surely neither Logan, nor Veronica or even Keith would actually believe Aaron would have a sudden crisis of conscience after all the trash talk and threats he spewed in that very episode after getting away with murder. And what about Kendall? Surely after having sex with Aaron, her presence in the apartment could be discovered easily by a CSI team-- that is, if they had bothered to send one in...
*** I wouldn't be surprised if Logan did decide to just let it go. Yeah, he was Aaron's own son, but then you realize that there was really no love lost there: Aaron killed Lilly, drove Lynn to suicide, abused Logan for years on end, attempted to kill Veronica, and even as late as that episode had threatened both him and Veronica. He might still have some lingering attachment he can't help but it really was for the best.
*** Logan I can buy. Keith and Veronica letting it go that easily is a little harder to grasp, but that may just be me. Either way it's strange that they just left it open-ended like that, especially in hindsight with the suicide-or-murder plot in the next season.

*** I think they knew that it was probably Duncan's people (or maybe they thought it was Logan's?). Aaron killed Lilly and tried to kill Veronica and Keith. Duncan is not only hiding from the police so good luck finding him but if he is punished for his actions then that just means that the baby would be returned to the super abusive Manning household. If there was ever a reason to look the other way, it was here.
*** The blood spatter is meaningless. Aaron could simply have turned his head thus causing an entry wound in his temple and making it look like a suicide. The real question is why did no one test his hands for gun shot residue? Or, you know, look for a gun?

** Wasn't it stated that he got it from Woody Goodman?
*** Doesn't make sense. That requires neither Woody or him to have not had the sort of routine check-up that Veronica got when she found out. Considering the level of health care the rich people in the series should be getting, that's just plain unbelievable.
*** Well, Woody was actually treated twice - he did get the routine checkups, it just never stayed gone. [[spoiler:Cassidy]] was horribly ashamed of what happened to him, remember, and likely had no symptoms - so a doctor probably wouldn't do that kind of test unless he told them too, and even if they did, he might just ignore it in the frantic attempt to not deal. (Note - I know like nothing about how the medical system works)

** Also Neptune is a pretty small place, after all it's an unincorporated township, so half the population being millionaires doesn't actually translate into a huge number of actual rich people. If they have a population of somewhere around 3,000 (which, if Neptune where much bigger than that, the state would likely require them to incorporate) and the average household size is three, then that's approximately 1,000 households and thus 500 rich households. Now statistically, only about 35% of households have school-age children, so that's only 180 students, spread across all grade levels. Which even with an incredibly generous endowment and some hefty tuition rates, that's just not enough students to keep even a very small private school up and running.

* Veronica had been friends with the kids of the "millionaires" of Neptune before Lily's death. She noted she wasn't one of them, but as her father was sheriff she got a certain respect. Then her best friend is murdered, her boyfriend dumps her suddenly, she sticks by her disgraced father, and her mother turned to alcohol and left. Top it off by getting roofied and raped at a rich kid party she crashed (and then have the new sheriff mock her reporting of it), and she's pretty jaded. Most of her new friends come from the "work for millionaires" part of Neptune (Wallace, Mac, Weevil), and it takes the better part of a season for Logan to warm up to her. For the first few seasons, she isn't in a very trusting mood (IIRC, her first words on the show was a claim she was never getting married).

** The stupid thing is a town with that much money floating about would have a K-12 private school for all the rich kids. It would screw with the show obviously, but there's no chance a town where a billionaire who founded a company that made half the town millionaires wouldn't have a private school for all of them.

** I live in a town kind of like Neptune where there are a lot of really rich people and then a bunch of middle class people. Not so many poor minorities though. Very few of the really rich people send their kids to private school, at least to my knowledge, because we have such a good public school system. Like at Neptune, it's obviously corrupt though, with the rich kids always getting what they want and everyone else having to slog through the bs of the american education system. But still, I don't think it's that hard to believe that the rich kids go to public school. I go to school with at least three kids whose parents are professional athletes, one of which is Vince Papale's son, the football player who had that movie made about him. Plus, an innumerable number of rich business owners' and doctors'/lawyers' children. I do agree about the fact that the class levels aren't split though. A good school like that, there'd be a lot of levels and AP classes would be separate.

Why didn't Veronica release the Sherriff Lamb cd from "the beetle" that incriminated Sherrif Lamb? Lamb's clearly an incompetent asshat who (at least up to this point in the series) has not had a single instance of being a decent cop? *facepalm* You know what's even more hilarious? She chews her father out for not releasing the other piece of evidence (the voice mail) even though his reasons for keeping it hidden are much better. Can you say hypocrisy?

How was Keith ever elected Sheriff in the first place? It's clear that the rich run the town but Keith was about as incorruptible as anyone got in Neptune. As such, why was he ever allowed to take the post? From Veronica's fantasy in ''Leave it to Beaver'', it appears that Lamb was around as a Deputy when Keith was Sherriff and we see in S3 that he ''sucks'' at running for office, so why wasn't Lamb "installed" in the first place (from their point of view, better a guy they can bribe to look the other way than a Crusader for Justice). It's not as if Neptune wasn't corrupt before the Lily Kane murder, because it's implied that organisations such as the Tritons (and that other organisation that Jake Kane runs in S3) have been around for years.

* I can't remember if it was officially established when Veronica made her friends within the 09-ers. If she was already friends with Lily, Duncan, Logan, and all the other 09-ers when Keith was running for Sheriff, it makes sense that her friends' parents might have given some money and support to Keith, especially because we don't exactly know who he was running against. Sheriff races aren't usually too big, so having a few big name donors would hold a lot of sway. Plus, he was likely able to bring in most of the poor votes because they saw him as less corruptible and more on their side than someone who would be easily bought out.
* There's some indication that the Neptune Police Department isn't really systematically corrupted at that point in time. Individual cops might be on the take, but even Sheriff Lamb, for all of his insensitivity and shocking ineptitude, generally does the right thing in the end, even if Keith and Veronica basically need to do all of the actual work and hand it to his protesting ass on a platter. The town itself, is a corrupt cesspool right out of Charles Dickens, sure, but the vested interests seem content to leave the sheriff ''mostly'' alone, and simply use their power and influence to make sure the (mostly inept) police never cotton on to their crimes in the first place. In fact, there's a bit of fridge horror in the idea that it's the Mars's combination of incorruptibility ''and'' competence that finally destroys the sheriff's office: if he and Veronica had just left the Kane case well enough alone, and not exposed the crimes of two of Neptune's leading families, the status quo might have persisted. But when the wealthy powers-that-be could no longer rely on police incompetence, they just bought them off wholesale.

Okay; so Aaron Echols managed to bullshit his way to an acquittal for murdering Lilly Kane. Fine. Main/TruthInTelevision. (Except not, because bringing up Veronica's medical records should've been an instant mistrial for several reasons and possibly resulted in jail time for ''Echolls' attorney''...) So what happened to the charges for kidnapping Veronica, assaulting Keith, and trying to kill them both by setting some guy's house on fire? Did the local prosecutors just forget about HOW they caught Aaron in the first place?
* He claimed he got into Veronica's car with her permission, she crashed, and they walked to the guy's house and called for help, after which Keith arrived and attacked him unprovoked. The homeowner, the only uninvolved witness, "mysteriously disappeared" before the trial.
** Except any sort of forensic investigation, you know, ''at all'' would have blown huge holes in this story. If Keith attacked unprovoked why are Aaron's fingerprints all over the gas which started a fire. Why was there a fire in the first place? And it is somewhat unlikely that Veronica would have climbed inside and locked herself into an old refrigerator, and set it on fire. There would certainly be hair and blood inside the fridge from Veronica. There are alote more things than that too.
*** I assumed that those were also covered up/lied/bought off, just off screen. It would be boring if we had to sit through the entire court case.
