Previews suck

Okay, this is mostly for Tori, but since you all decided to read my blog, you're getting a Veronica rant. TeeHee. The preview for the next one has me scared. I do NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT want the Veronica/Logan thing to end. I seriously was ready to choke her in this episode when she refused to trust him. I wanted to kill her and hold him and cry when he gave that line about the reason he didn't want to tell her was that he'd feared the look of judgement on her face. Yes, I know she has trust issues (which, BTW, is why I adore the character arcs in this show). HOWEVER, it is time she GROWS. We've been stuck in the "do not trust" arc, and I'm getting tired of it.

Which, for you non Veronica watchers (you mutant freaks!) who write, is an excellent lesson in characterization. (I'm telling you, buy the DVD sets-you need to see how flawlessly they're developed. All but the bus crash-that bit) Thomas has done an excellent job of establishing Veronica's lack of trust issues. However, we're now into Season Three, and we're in round two of Veronica/Logan (who truly belong together) and Veronica's refusal to trust him is holding them back. Logan (except when he was dealing with his own personal trauma arc stuff) has consistently proven (esepecially in this go-around) that despite things that look bad, that he can be trusted. At least by any other reasonable human being.

I like what she's learning and being shown now-the girl looking for her missing boyfriend and not caring if boyfriend was cheating (he wasn't) so long as he was okay. A good smack in the face after she'd been yet again proven wrong for not trusting Logan. So these rotten previews showing trouble in the waters because she now thinks that if she really loved him, she'd trust him, are not to my liking. Granted, the last previews that irritated me had nothing to do with the episode, so maybe there's hope. But seriously. I want her to grow up. For me to be satisfied with her growth arc, she needs to trust him. To put her faith in him and be rewarded. To see that it is okay to trust, and that even the big, bad Veronica Mars needs someone else.

Huh. That sounds like a pretty good story, eh?

Oh, and I usually don't tell you when I post on my other blog, but today I will, because I have a huge rant on my Enemy Prayer Blog and it's something that's been heavy on my heart for a while.

I'm with ya all the way, sister! I was extremely less than pleased about next week's previews. C'mon, Rob, stop torturing these poor kids and let them be HAPPY!

Yeah, no doubt. If I wanted a soap opera, I'd watch Dumb Housewives or Daytime TV.
