According to a dream of Veronica's, the bomb only killed the bus driver Ed. All the others died because they drowned later.

(In 2.02 "Driver Ed" Wallace reads a newspaper article about the crash that is dated Saturday, September 24, 2005. It's unclear if the events in Driver Ed occured right after the crash (September 21st to September 24th), which would put the bus crash on September 21. Or if Driver Ed takes place the following week, which would put the bus crash on September 14.)

Woody Goodman invites students from newspaper, yearbook, and broadcast news class to visit his baseball team's stadium.

Ed uses the $0.75 change from the St. Christopher purchase to make a four-minute phone call to Carla Cotter, his mistress, who lives in the same apartment complex. He calls Carla to say that he'll see her later. (Potential goof: While in the sheriff's department interrogation room, Veronica inquires about phone calls made from 4:15 pm to 4:30 pm. Later she says the call was made at 4:05 pm.) (2.02 "Driver Ed")

4:20 pm

The mystery caller tells him that the Fighting Fitzpatricks hired Curly to cause the accident in order to kill Cervando. Weevil does nothing because he doesn't believe the Fitzpatricks would kill a bus full of kids to get back at Cervando.
(2.04 "Green-Eyed Monster")

Veronica discovers that Ed was having an affair with Carla Cotter. Carla tells Jessie that Ed wasn't planning on killing himself; he planned on seeing her later that day. Even though Jessie confronts Lamb about the fact that her father was having an affair, he stands by his decision to close the case, and by the suicide ruling. (2.02 "Driver Ed")

Veronica's theory/Beaver's flashback: Beaver watches as Weevil pummels Curly at the Roadhog parking lot. A biker spots Beaver's car, Beaver turns on his engine and flashes his headlights, and the PCHers flee.

After Logan leaves, Dr. Griffith tells Hannah everything. Hannah shuts Logan out due to this news, but Logan tells her that her dad is lying about being a witness because he is a cokehead in deep with the Fitzpatricks. He swears he had no idea who she was at the carnivale. After finding "Fitzpatrick" and "River Stix" on the caller ID, and drugs in the bathroom, she tells Logan he was right about her dad. Veronica gets wind of the fact that Logan is dating Dr. Griffith's daughter.

Lamb turns Terrence's house upside down, but he has yet to press any charges. Terrence claims he has no memory of anything he did between 5 and 11 pm on September 13th, the day of crash. When Keith questions him about a call to Hank Melton, he admits he might have been at the Seven Rivers Casino owned by Leonard Lobo during that time. Leonard gives Keith photos that show Terrance at the casino at 7:01 pm and 7:06 pm; he does not give Keith photos at 7:03, which could have cleared Terrence. Keith learns that the casino jams all cell phone signal within a one hundred yard radius, which means Terrence could not have made the call that denoted the bomb from his cell phone. Keith brings the photos to Lamb. Lamb refuses to clear Terrence, even after Keith threatens to release the recording where Lamb is blackmailing Terrence.

Veronica finds some explosives and detonators in the hangar where Woody Goodman lets Terrence Cook keep his cars. (2.14 "Versatile Toppings")

March 2006

The Entertainment Network releases its next installment of Tinseltown Diaries, this time focusing on the life of Aaron Echolls. Aaron still denies that he killed Lilly Kane and insists that people look at her brother, Duncan, saying that he has fled the country and is wanted for kidnapping. Aaron says he doesn't think the sex tapes exist; his representatives have asked for copies from the prosecution, but they have yet to receive them. It is revealed that he is currently in custody at Balboa County Prison. Kendall visits Aaron in prison. While there, they flirt and Kendall agrees to do something for Aaron at Logan's.
Later, she goes into Duncan's bathroom and uses tweezers to do something to the shower drain.

Veronica tells Keith that she found detonators and explosives marked C4 in the hanger. She says Jackie did not see anything. Keith immediately goes to the sheriff department to tell Lamb about the explosives. The next morning, Lamb and the bomb squad search the hangar. Keith goes to the hangar on his own and meets Lamb, who tells Keith that he has to wait just like everyone else for the press conference. While Keith is at the hangar, a man in a truck that says Magic Touch Custom Detailing comes up to the hangar space.

10:17 am

A warrant is issued for Terrence Cook's arrest, charging him with eight counts of murder in the first degree.

During the press conference, Lamb announces that that the explosives and detonators in hangar space used by Terrence Cook to house his automobiles were found matching the same ones at the bus crash. They do not have Terrence in custody at this time. Keith talks with the detailer from Magic Touch and learns that the detailer has a standing appointment every month with Terrence Cook. They only allow him to use the stuff in the cabinet where the explosives were found and the detailer did not see them there last month.

Leslie Dumass's father catches Terrence breaking into their family home in San Francisco and shots him.

The Kane house is going up for sale.

Logan meets with his lawyer, Cliff McCormack. Cliff tells Logan a trial date has been set: 60 days from today. The prosecution has offered a one-time deal: plea bargain. If Logan accepts, the charge will be involuntary manslaughter and he'll only spend four (not 11) years in jail, two if he gets probation for good behavior. Logan is shocked at the amount of time and tells Cliff there's no deal. Logan goes to a convinence store and is spat in the face by a future PCHer. Logan writes an email to Dr. Griffith, implying it's from Hannah's mother, Steph Denenberg, saying that condoms were found in Hannah's room. This is enough for Dr. Griffith to come over to Logan's hotel room and agree to withdraw his testimony if Logan stops seeing Hannah. Logan stops by Java the Hut and admits to Veronica he's done something horrible.

Cassidy continues to run Phoenix Land Trust with Kendall's name as a front. Kendall says all the investors think Big Dick is pulling the strings and Cassidy lets them believe it. He has gotten some amazing deals in South Neptune.

Logan wins an essay contest where he gets to be assistant deputy mayor under Woody Goodman for a week. The winner also gets to push the plunger when Shark Field is demolished next Saturday. Logan finds a video in the midst of sorting out the mail for Woody. The video shows the Goodman family having dinner from inside their home, the Goodmans blissfully unaware. This video was made in November or December, before Woody made the news about the incorporation, thus assuming the video has nothing to do about the incorporation plans. Woody tells Keith it's his ex-gardener who was fired a few months back.

Weevil tells Veronica more of the mystery call he got about Curly, Cervando, and the Fighting Fitzpatricks. Weevil and Veronica work together to bug the Fitzpatricks through a truck that Weevil gives to Molly. They then bring the information to the sheriff. Lamb scoffs it off. Weevil mugs Thumper and takes his drug money, making the Fitzpatricks very upset with Thumper. The Fitzpatricks tie Thumper up in an empty bathroom at Shark Field.

Later, they seek out the mystery caller, whose name is Luis, who lives in a rough side of town with the PCHers going up and down his street every night. He won't speak up because he's got his family to think about and believes Logan wouldn't be convicted anyway with his movie star father. Eventually, however, he decides to talk to the sheriff after Veronica talks to his wife. He tells Lamb that he saw one PCHer stab another PCHer and put the knife in Logan's hand. The PCHer then got on a bike that Lamb recognizes as Thumper's and drove off.

Kendall visits Keith's and tells him if he returns her harddrive by Friday, she won't press charges.

Keith asks Veronica to mail to all of their business contacts a sketch of the man who hired the escort to steal Cliff's briefcase. Logan says the sketch looks like the guy that AAron shared a cell with.

Woody calls Keith to the Camelot motel. Keith arrives and finds Woody and a passed-out, undressed woman. Woody asks Keith to take the "campaigner staffer" to the hospital to avoid "Mayor brings mistress to ER" headlines. The manager of the hotel photographs Keith with the woman. Goodman tells the reporters that Keith was hired to investigate campaign leaks and Keith plied Jennifer Stansfield with alcohol to get information. Off-the-record Woody implies Keith tried to taking advantage of her. Jennifer disappears after Keith takes her to the hospital. Keith tells Lloyd that he worked for Woody, but not to plug campain leaks. Lloyd tells Keith that after he dropped Jennifer off, she left the hospital without being treated and no one can track her down. On the day of the election, Lloyd publishes Keith's side of the story. Lloyd also reports that Woody used campaign funds to pay for an escort. Many cite the scandal as the reason the incorporation measure is voted down by 3% margin.

Gia asks Veronica to help catch the guy who is stalking her. Veronica learns that Gia's "stalker" is Leo. Leo tells Gia and Veronica that he's following Gia because he works for the private security firm that Woody hired. Leo was never told why Woody hired them, but he assumes there's been some sort of threat. Gia asks Woody about the security, and he tells her that the security is a normal election precaution. After Woody pulls the security, Gia arrives home and finds a DVD containing footage of her brother's soccer game. Veronica shows Keith the footage, and then Keith shows Veronica the video footage that someone shot inside the Goodman's house. Keith warns Veronica to stay away from the case. Veronica discovers that Lucky is the one who videotaped the soccer game. A knife-wielding Lucky tells Veronica and Gia that he "has some pretty crazy stuff" that he could tell them and that he knows Woody. Keith tackles Lucky, and when Keith asks him the reason for stalking Gia, the breakins, and the videos, Lucky replies "He deserved it. He deserved it!" Keith handcuffs himself to Lucky to get more information from him. Lucky says Keith doesn't know what Woody really is. Stewart Manning posts Lucky's bail.

Late May (2.21 "Happy Go Lucky")

Lucky brings a gun to Neptune High, giving the entire group of people sitting outside at the time a scare. These people include Wallace, Jackie, Veronica, and Gia. All scatter at the sound of the gun going off. Veronica and Gia hide together. Jackie and Wallace are separated from each other and Veronica and Gia. Jackie tries to call for help, but Lucky spots her and frightens her. Wallace tackles Lucky to the ground and Lucky shoots at Wallace. Luckily, the gun is only filled with blanks so Wallace remains unharmed. Lucky, however, is shot from behind by a security guard and is killed instantly.

That night, on the news, there is a press conference in front of the Sheriff's department where Woody explains what happened at Neptune High that day. He tells reporters that he has no idea who Lucky was after, but the press thinks it's Gia due to the stalking from last week. Woody brushes this off. Keith and Veronica were watching this story. Keith tells Veronica he made it into Lucky's apartment and found that Lucky sent several emails to Woody from different email addresses. Veronica investigates this on behalf of her father as she has agreed to go the Goodman house to study with Gia.. She finds a "Kill incorporation or else" email with a recording and later identifies two of the three people on the tape as bus crash victims Peter Ferrer and Marco Oliveres. Keith and Veronica bring this information to Lamb who initially blows it off. There's no way he's going to let Keith make him look like a laughingstock. Again.

The Aaron Echolls trial is getting underway. Aaron repeats his story of Duncan being the real killer of Lilly Kane. Logan meets with his father at the jail. Aaron advises his son to not tell the DA what he saw on the tapes, saying it's in his best interest. Logan scoffs. Aaron is confident that he is going to win a not guilty verdict, and thinks there's no point to his son risking being accused of committing a felony. Veronica gives her testimony, but is rattled when Aaron's lawyer asks her about undergoing treatment for her STD. Veronica answers that she just completed the treatment. When Keith is on the stand, he loses it as well. Logan gives his testimony, saying what he's seen on the tapes. He's been granted immunity for his testimony. The verdict comes in and Aaron is found not guilty for all the charges.

Mr. Lobo comes forward with the fact that there's no way Terrence Cook could have been behind the bus crash as Terrence was with Mr. Lobo at the time. Lamb is still not sure. The jury will find out with his dealings as Mr. Lobo's with a casino. But Mr. Lobo brings forward two more respectable gentlemen, his corporate attorney and his chief financial officer willing to cooperate in this story as they were also with Terrence at the time of the crash. Due to this, Terrence is able to come home. But at a cost: He has to work for Mr. Lobo.

The Goodman household is evacuated due to the bomb threats and a bomb is found under Woody's car. The same type of phone-activated bomb that was found on the bus.

Aaron taunts Veronica that the best thing about smashing Lilly's head in with an ash tray was that he knew she would finally shut the hell up.

Beaver meets Veronica on the roof and threatens her with a gun. Veronica confronts Beaver about 1) causing the crash because Marcos and Peter wanted to come forward about being molested by Woody, 2) setting up and killing Curly because Curly suspected him, 3) hiring her to expose Big Dick's business dealings, and 4) raping her at Shelly Pomeroy's party. Beaver tells her he planted another bomb on Woody's plane. Veronica crumbles after Beaver detonates the bomb on plane that Keith was supposed to be on.

Jackie confesses to Wallace that she her mom isn't a model living in the Upper West side. Her mom is a waitress who had a one-night stand with Terrence 18 years ago. She tells him that she has to stay in NYC to raise her two-year old son, and that he has to go back to Neptune.

Veronica is overcome with emotion when Keith tells her that Lamb had them take him off Woody's plane at the last minute because Lamb didn't want the press to see Keith when Woody arrived in Neptune.

Big Dick's lawyer tells Kendall that Cassidy's death will probably be ruled a suicide, therefore the insurance is going to be a wash. He also tells her that she has earned $8 million from the Phoenix Land trust.

Logan drives Veronica to the airport so they can talk. Just as Keith is ready to leave for the airport, Kendall tells Keith that she needs him to do something for her right now.

Veronica's graduation. According to the August 28th, 2004 diary entry, there are only 674 days until graduation. (Minor quibble - it's highly unlikely that graduation day would fall on July 4th, but I'll give the writers who wrote Veronica's diary a break since I like the symbolism.)
