"I'm not worried. I tend to bounce back."
From the first, Logan Echolls had villain written all over him. Lucky, lucky scribe. Ahem. Yet to describe Neptune High's "obligatory psychotic jackass" as such does a disservice to a complex and fascinating character. Who is surprisingly hot. Exceedingly hot.
As the son of a movie star, Logan appeared to have the existence one dreams of. He had money, possessions, and the freedom to do as he wanted, when he wanted. The reality of his life was very different. An abusive and self-serving philanderer for a father who slept with, and murdered, his girlfriend; a mother anesthetized by alcohol and drugs who stepped off a bridge to final oblivion; a selfish and disinterested half-sister; this was Logan's family. With his dad in jail, his sister hawking the story to Hollywood, and his newest girlfriend betraying and dumping him, it's no surprise the kid is a mess.
When he is bad, he is very, very bad.
He can be arrogant, mean, and vindictive. He can be stupid and reckless. Neptune is a powder keg after Logan walked away from his night on the Coronado Bridge, leaving Felix's body behind. Far from keeping his head down in a town filled with those that hate him and would call him a killer, Logan stokes the bitter fire, one that is literal when his home burns to the ground. He is playing with fire too, getting much closer to Dick and Beaver. And Beaver, although not so close as to offer himself up for the role of sugar daddy, even if it does hurt Kendall's feeling.
But when he is good, it is torrid.
Logan found love with Lilly but lost it. He found hot love with Veronica. Hot, hot love. With her, he showed another side: caring, loving, funny, witty, and charming. He misses her, and he shows it with barbs and needles.
Logan is deeply flawed and drawn by a creator who likes him when he is tortured. If Logan were real, you know what he'd tell Rob Thomas.
"Bring it on."
