2.02 "Driver Ed"

Aired Oct 05, 2005


Senior year at Neptune High is off to a running start, and all appears hunky dory. Except...not so much. Still reeling from the bus crash, Veronica agrees to help the bus driver's daughter, Jessie, prove that her father Ed didn't drive the bus over the cliff intentionally. Although the Sheriff's department closes the case as a suicide, Veronica discovers that Ed was having an affair and planned to leave his wife, not end his life. Meanwhile, Wallace strikes out on his own and uses his blossoming detective skills to help new student Jackie Cook, and Woody Goodman convinces Keith to get back into the lawmakers' game with a little (unintentional) help from Sheriff Lamb. After assisting Jessie, Veronica realizes that life is too short and has sex with Duncan (on purpose this time). Life was also too short for a stranger from the bus crash memorial, who ends up washed on the beach with "VERONICA MARS" written on his hand.
