"And then, there's bachelor number three. He's got it all. Motive. Access. Looks like an evil-doer, smells like an evil-doer. But surprisingly, not so much."
From the first, Logan Echolls had villain written all over him. Lucky scribe. Ahem. Yet to describe Neptune High's "obligatory psychotic jackass" as such does a disservice to a complex and fascinating character.
As the son of a movie star, Logan has the existence one dreams of. He has money, possessions, the freedom to do what he wants, when he wants. The reality of his life is different. Very different. An abusive and self-serving philanderer for a father; a selfish, disinterested b*tch of a half-sister; a mother anesthetized by alcohol and drugs, to mute the sound of the belt on the bare flesh of her son and to forget her husband's lovers; this is Logan's family. Or was. Finally worn by her husband's infidelity, his mother seems to have chosen suicide.
Is Logan bad? Oh yes. He can be arrogant, mean, vindictive, and he takes pleasure in torturing Veronica. He slips into racism as easily as others slip on a coat. He paid bums to fight each other for sport. Most heinous of all, he dated Paris Hilton (or rather a character she played, but still, eeewww). The illusion that Logan creates for himself is as destructive as the reality in which he lives.
Is that all he is? Hardly. He and Lilly loved with temperamental fury. He and Duncan have a deep bond. He's funny and witty and loyal to those he calls friend. Once, Veronica was one of those friends. Will she ever be again?
Logan Echolls is a mess. A vulnerable, wicked, wonderful mess. And also. He is hot.
Are you sure he's hot?
Have we met?
