2.09 "My Mother, the Fiend"

Aired Nov 30, 2005


It's all about maternity on Veronica Mars this week when Veronica discovers a report that her ma was suspended for spreading malicious rumors that a student was pregnant. In the end, it turns out that a) the rumor was true (and Trina was the baby), b) Lianne wasn't the one who spread it (current health teacher Mrs. Ms. Hauser did), and c) (now former) Principal Moorehead was the father. Beaver decides to start up his own stepmom-and-pop real estate company, Duncan gets into a fight with his matriach, Logan and Weevil get into the mother-of-all-battles, and Veronica finally visits Meg's room and finds out that Meg's a mommy-to-be. Plus, after Veronica leaves, Meg opens her eyes. Whoa, momma!

An alternate ending was filmed as a ratings stunt and IS NOT part of the story. The alternate ending is about a minute long and begins right after Veronica finds out that Meg is pregnant. Veronica hides when Rose Manning visits her daughter. Once Rose has gone, Veronica finds Meg smothered to death, and she is discovered by a nurse holding the pillow.
