Fall-out from the Rape Between Logan and Dick?  


  • We know that there is a rapist loose on campus at Hearst.

  • We know that Veronica investigated one rape, but it was only to prove Troy innocent, not find the rapist.

  • We know that Veronica now knows she didn't just have consensual/drugged/possibly incestuous/forgotten notrape sex, but that she also was flat-out raped by Beaver.

  • We know that from all accounts, Dick was definitely a part of the equation that gave Beaver the opportunity to rape Veronica.

    So putting all of those together, it's quite likely that we will see some continuation of this story in season three. If that is the case, then what happens with Dick and Logan? After Beaver -- who actually chose to rape her -- Dick is by far the most responsible. He double-dosed Madison (who gave her drink to Veronica, unknowing that it was drugged); he fed her liquor shots after the double-dosing; he and Sean brought Veronica to a guest room with the sole intent of getting Beaver to have sex with her; he left her alone in that room with Beaver, fully expecting Beaver TO have sex with her.

    So, will this be addressed or will it be brushed over by Thomas and co., as Logan and Duncan's part in the notrape sex was? Will Veronica discuss it with Logan, thus leading Logan to find out exactly what part Dick played in the events that night? Will we see Logan and Dick at odds? Will Dick finally show remorse for his actions? Will part of next season's arc be about the relationship between Logan and Dick (who is at this point, Logan's only true friend) be explored?

    I tend to think that the whole Beaver-raping-Veronica will only mostly be used as a way for Veronica to become emotionally invested in the case/connect to the female victims. I don't think we'll see her holding Dick accountable at all or that night being revisited again in-depth; RT and Co. seem intent on severing almost all ties to past canon that could confuse new viewers (in some ways I think this is a smart move, in some ways I'm worried it'll be a really bad one).

    Agreed and I do think that the very reason that RT went the Beaver raped her route is because he actually realized that a rape story won't work without acknowledging that Veronica was raped because of the history of the show. So, he made Beaver the scapegoat to preserve Duncan's halo. (Hah!)

    I don't think we'll see her holding Dick accountable at all or that night being revisited again in-depth;

    That's what I'm afraid of. Sigh.

    Again, agreed. A fresh start, no Duncan, no Lilly, no Pink Pastel, no character actions that make relationships as they stand make no sense may sadly be the only way he can clean up the mess he's made. On the other hand, once you're hooked, you're generally HOOKED on this show and a lot will check out past info and the head-scratching begins anew in regards to those character actions. Ah well. I still wish there was someway we could get a nother Pam Ewing dream and start senior year all over again, with Duncan off with his family, Veronica and Logan dating and dealing, Meg alive and all of the stupid, stupid stuff that happened in S2 was just erased.

    Sigh, I know, I know.
