I’m exhausted and I need to get my arse to bed but I just read this post by gaggedinacasket and it got me to thinking about
I had this “revelation” earlier this evening when I was rereading the transcript for the Pilot. I think the video is the key. Do you know the pilot episode was all about VIDEO and being caught on tape? First, the biker boys are caught on tape stealing from the store. Even though Wallace tries to back pedal and tell the Sheriff that they didn’t actually steal anything, they can’t escape the truth that the video reveals.
Second, we see a flashback about the videotape of the Lilly’s murder scene being leaked online. Veronica even points to this as being the reason that Keith ultimately lost his job. Once again a video is at the bottom of it…
Third, Veronica pulls a bait and switch with the store video and a video she has taken of officers accepting “favors” at the Seventh Veil. Here, again, the truth is revealed by a video. Even Wallace maintains some power over Weevil by keeping the store video instead of giving it to him. He’s the keeper of the secret while he maintains control over the video.
And, then, to top it all off we’re told in this episode that the Kane fortune was made on the foundation of video… streaming video online.
I’m pretty sure that means a video of some sort is going to be the key to the entire murder. Which, as it happens, puts a different light on Veronica’s exit at the end of this episode. I can almost see the wheels clicking in her head as she sees the cameras recording the bed.
Speaking of video, let’s examine something that bothers me. Why is it that the Kane’s have no kind of security cameras in their house? Not that they don’t, we just haven’t heard about any. Given the size of their estate and the fact that they have people like Clarence working for them, you’d think they’d be taping every last corner in that house. We’ve not heard one peep about cameras and what they may have caught on that fatal day. Is that what Veronica was thinking about when she found the camera in the poolhouse or was it something else? And, who, if the Kane’s have cameras would security be calling if they saw something on them… Clarence?
I have no answers to these questions and I’m sure there’s a dozen more that go along with the idea but I can’t sort through them at the moment. Maybe I’ll go back and re-read other scripts over the weekend to see if I can catch more ‘video’ links. I already see a connection with Logan as he admits to that stuff being his thing when he offers to do Lilly’s memorial tape for Duncan. We also have Aaron who constantly putting a “show” for the cameras. Even Veronica has a connection – she was the one with the camcorder the night of the prom that she, Lilly, Duncan, and Logan spent together. In fact, she was the one who provided the “true” Lilly for Logan’s memorial – once again the video reveals the truth.
Ugh – I feel like I’m right on the edge of something but it hasn’t all clicked into place yet. It’s frustrating! Even when I decide I’m just going to sit back and let them reveal it all to me I can’t let it go. I end up obsessing about it again, trying to find the clues I’ve missed along the way.
