Veronica Mars: My Mother, the Fiend

After getting caught in the school office Veronica is ordered in detention. While serving her time reorganizing the school’s files, she stumbles upon her mother’s permanent record and learns that she was suspended. While trying to find out the reasons for her mothers suspensions she learns more about who her mother was and starts to questions what she thought she already knew. Trina Echolls returns to direct a Neptune High play and takes an immediate dislike to Logan’s new flame Kendall Casablancas. The more Veronica learns about the past the more convinced she is that Trina has more to do with it then either of them could imagine, Trina may also be the key to what kind of person Veronica's mother is. Weevil confronts Logan directly about Felix’s murder.

Veronica: You read Machiavelli over the summer...
Niccolò Machiavelli wrote his best known work, The Prince, somewhere around 1513; the book was published posthumously. Born of an attitude fostered by conflict, The Prince is a handbook outlining the ways a ruler should achieve and retain his rule (or principality). The underlying theme is that morality must always yield to pragmatism when constructing strategy and tactics. It is generally a backhanded comment (at best) to refer to someone as "Machiavellian" because it suggests they have adopted the principles espoused in this volume; that is, their tactics are brilliant but possibly unethical. The tactics employed by Van Clemons to unseat his predecessor and obtain the principal's post are exactly the sort of tactics Machiavelli suggests.
