Outside the club, Veronica warns Wallace the Tritons are bad news, and he should be careful...[[DescriptionCut only to find out the club is having a karaoke night.]] Duncan is finishing up an out-of-tune rendition of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" when they arrive, and the judges give him low scores. Veronica tries to confront Duncan about the Tritons, but he speaks in nonsense verse. Veronica gets disgusted and sits down. After listening to a few more bad singers, Veronica decides it's time to leave, which is when Duncan gives her a note from "The Great Triton" that says, "You shall hear my voice once I've heard yours." Just then, the karaoke MC calls up Veronica. She's surprised, but sings an energetic version of {{Blondie}}'s "One Way or Another". She exits the stage to applause and good scores from the judges, and the MC gives her a note, which tells her to meet "The Great Triton" alone in the men's bathroom. Once there, she tries to question "The Great Triton" about the fake [=IDs=], but it turns out to be a kid who Duncan paid $20 to prank Veronica.

Later, Weevil stops by Rebecca's office. He claims not to remember the week Lily was killed, and he claims he was more upset by the fact a little girl from his neighborhood went missing and was killed around the same time, and no one cared about that. As Rebecca tries to assure him that people did care, we see Veronica is in her car, hidden underneath a blue tarp, and is listening in. Rebecca reads a letter Weevil wrote to Lily about how Lily broke his heart by leaving him. She also says Lily wanted to be transferred out of PE because of Weevil, and Weevil responds he would never have hurt Lily. When Rebecca asks why he wrote the letter, Weevil tearfully admits how hurt he was when Lily left him to go back to Logan after swearing she wouldn't, and that he, Weevil, could have loved Lily. Veronica is stunned by this, and wonders if this was the "secret" Lily was keeping from her.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Obviously, Lynn's car being abandoned, but also the party Logan mentioned.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: Hilariously averted:
-->'''Veronica:''' (''voiceover'') Iím sure the Triton leaders consider this initiation painful for their pledges but honestly, arenít we the true victims?
* SecretCircleOfSecrets: Ultimately subverted; the Tritons are nothing out of the ordinary.
* ShoutOut: Wallace claims he was like {{Shaft}} when confronting the kid with the fake ID, to which Veronica replies, "Shut yo' mouth!"

Later, Duncan stops by Rebecca's office.

Later, Duncan stops by Rebecca's office. As Veronica listens again, Duncan tells Rebecca about how Lily used to make a face that would always crack him up, and that he still thinks Lily is watching her. Rebecca isn't concerned about that - she says it just sounds like Duncan misses Lily - but is slightly alarmed when Duncan says he stopped taking his medication. He clarifies he's only stopped taking anti-deppresants. Rebecca says the medication probably stopped him from fully processing Lily's death, and Duncan mentions he doesn't really remember what happened the day Lily died. Veronica, who's wondering what kind of medication Duncan does take, is interrupted by a knock on her car door. [[TemptingFate She assumes it's Wallace]], but it's the Tritons, who pull the tarp away, open the door, and grab Veronica.

Some time later, Veronica wakes up in the trunk of her car. She calls Wallace, who comes by and opens the trunk. Wallace asks what happened, and Veronica promises to explain once she gets finds out where the Tritons are meeting. As she turns the car on, she hears from the radio (which she had been using to listen to Rebecca's meetings) the Tritons chanting inside the school. She creeps into the school and sees the Tritons gathered in the main hallway, with the pledges wearing one set of hooded robes, and the Tritons wearing a different color of hooded robes. As the Tritons congratulate the pledges and everyone takes off their robes (revealing Duncan as one of the pledges and [[ChekhovsGun the MIT kid Veronica was waiting with at the beginning]] as one of the Tritons), Veronica takes their picture:

->'''Veronica:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Smile! Say "repressed homosexuality"!]]

After snapping a few photos, she runs out, with the Tritons chasing after her. She reaches her car before they do, and Wallace drives them off.

At her apartment later that night, Wallace congratulates himself for driving away that fast. Veronica looks at the footage from her video camera, and to her puzzlement, no one went near it. She asks Wallace if it's a top locker, and when he says yes, [[EurekaMoment Veronica says she's figured it out]].

At Mars Investigations the next day, Aaron stops by, and Keith says he's found out who's been feeding the tabloids information, but warns Aaron he's not going to like the answer.

Meanwhile, Veronica stops by the sheriff's office, and promises Lamb the real culprit will stop by before 5 pm that day; if he doesn't, Veronica promises to accept whatever punishment the law throws at her. Lamb reluctantly agrees. Veronica tells him to pick out a name from the yearbook, drop the name and money in an envelope in the mystery locker (locker 110), and the kid will have a fake ID, while she is waiting in the sheriff's department. After Lamb leaves, Veronica calls Rick and tells him to stop by the sheriff's later to confront the real bad guy.

Outside Clemmons' office, Aaron angrily confronts Lily for being the one to feed the tabloids the information, and Lily snaps she just wanted to hurt Aaron like he hurt her. Aaron threatens to cut Lily off completely, and Logan snaps, "[[IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer Dad, you say another word to her and I will kill you.]]" Lily says she can't take anymore, and leaves, with Aaron following. Lynn gets into her car, swallows some pills, and drives off.

Back at the sheriff's, Veronica is still lounging when Rick arrives. Veronica then fingers him as the culprit. Deputy Sachs comes by, telling Lamb the fake ID was there just as Veronica said. Rick denies it, but Veronica asks about the money in his wallet. When Lamb looks at the money in Rick's wallet, he discovers a $50 with something written on it:

->'''Lamb:''' (''reading'') "[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Veronica Mars is...smarter than me.]]"
->'''Veronica:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Oh, you stop it!]]

Veronica reveals the locker was over Rick's locker, and he's reach in to get the [=IDs=]. She also accuses Rick of using their own fake [=IDs=], and only blaming the Tritons because he didn't get in, like the rest of his family did. She then asks why Rick blamed her; [[ItsPersonal Rick angrily tells her Keith busted his father for embezzling money, but he was only taking what he had been cheated out of, and Keith had ruined their lives.]] Veronica drops her head.

In the Neptune High parking lot, Veronica approaches Duncan. She gives him the pictures she took, and apologizes for suspecting the Tritons. He tells her he heard Tim came out of his coma, and jokingly denies any knowledge of the Tritons. As he drives off, Veronica ponders about the medications he's taking.
