"Well, I am the fairest."
Wallace Fennel is the man. He's convinced of it, anyway. He arrives at Hearst College in the Fall ready to become the Big Man on Campus and Hearst's newest basketball phenom. He's still Veronica's right-hand man and partner-in-crime, and his roommate Piz jokes that Wallace is better-looking than he is. Wallace likes him already.
With the biological-father drama behind him, and Jackie back in Brooklyn, Wallace has returned to his easy-going, pleasant ways. His mother Alicia and little brother Darrell are still in Neptune, but we don't know if they will be making an appearance and earning the actors any S.A.G. points this season. Maybe if Alicia and Keith reconcile. *fingers crossed*
He's once again flying his model planes solo now that his first love is on the other side of the country. So he and Piz temporarily satisfy their post-adolescent sexual urges by hanging out on campus, watching female students sunbathe on the South Quad. Maybe Wallace will get a new girlfriend — preferably, one that doesn't lie about being rich or harbor any secret children.
Academically speaking, after following the advice of a teammate, a slacker P.E. major, he cheats on a Mechanical Engineering exam and gets caught (you don't turn in the exam early, Wallace). But rather than dropping the class, he sticks it out, determined to ace the rest of the semester, which will average out to a passing grade. Wallace puts his Jordan-esque basketball skills on hold temporarily while he focuses on his schoolwork, but the coach still allows him to keep his scholarship.
This is "regular" Wallace, who, though flawed, remains the moral center of the show. So we know everything will turn out okay.
