VM 3.02 Cold Open  
Obviously spoilers for the next episode.

I despise Lamb and always will ... and not in a "love to hate him" way. I don't care how awesome a person Michael Muhney is. Lamb is a despicable, pathetic human being and I despise the character. Completely. I've never gotten over his treatment of her in the Pilot and nothing that has happened in the following two years has erased that, instead it's only added to it.

Now that I've gotten my Lamb hate out, man, the final bit there was heartbreaking. For the first time in a long time, I really, really felt for Veronica. I know that sounds bad, but I was so pissed off at her through most of S2 and her attitude was so frustrating that I didn't care, but in that scene I really felt for her feeling of guilt and it was just really, really well done. We saw wonderfully-written Veronica, a heroine we can all get behind even when she screws up. And whaddya know, Diane Ruggiero wrote ep 2 ... not Rob Thomas.

Honestly, right now I'm just adoring what Diane was able to do with that one scene. She did such a wonderful job (and props to the direction and KB) in showing me the Veronica that I love so much. I didn't really love Veronica in the premiere. But this Veronica? This girl? This screwed up young woman who's been through hell and is still willing to do the right thing, see that justice is done, even when she's going to get some hell? That's my Veronica. I like Parker already ... a lot, but despite the fact that such a horrible thing had just happened to her, my sympathy and love was with Veronica. Because that's my Veronica.

Lamb being an ass is to be expected and the reminders of the Pilot are great for older fans.

I agree that Veronica being upset about Parkers reaction is a good thing and really gets to the guilt that Veronica tends to get from cases.

I'm excited for next week already.

I plan to still watch the cold open so I did watch this and I agree with your assessment that this will help sell Veronica a little. Hopefully we will get better promo ads during GG because I must say I was not impressed with how they were trying to sell the show.

On to the character of Veronica - my jury is still out on her this season. I do hope this will help me invest in her more because I'm still on wanting to like her, not quite liking her mode.

And yes - thank goodness we are getting some female input into the show. Go Diane!
