Important Parts

  • Veronica was arrested for aiding and abetting Josh's escape because she baked him peanut butter cookies, and he's allergic to peanuts. He had a reaction to her cookies and after the ambulance came and the paramedic administered the Epi pen, Josh overpowered him and escaped.

  • When Veronica is released, she discovers that Josh has locked Mason up in his trunk. The gun Mason has doesn't match the bullet that killed the coach.

  • Keith discovers that Coach Barry had a terminal disease which would give him a long, painful death.

  • Veronica makes Josh a new ID and brings him to the bank to get his coin collection so he can sell it for money. Josh finds a DVD with his coins. Coach Barry made the DVD to tell Josh that he killed himself with the help of his friend. He didn't want to suffer or put a financial burden on his family. Josh leaves the country until his mom can collect the money from his father's insurance policy.

  • Mac, Bronson, Parker, and Logan go on a scavenger hunt for Valentine's Day. Mac and Bronson have sex. Parker and Logan hit it off.

  • Mel Stoltz paid an unexpected visit to the dean on the night of his death.

  • Dean O'Dell took the prescription anti-anxiety medicine Xanax, but the prescription had run out. Mindy signed for his refill on Dec. 10. She said she took some because she was upset by her husband's death.

  • Lamb checks the dean's keyboard and discovers Steve Batando's fingerprints. Steve says Mindy is setting him up.

  • Landry discovers his phone has been bugged and he thinks either Keith or Veronica bugged him. Both say they did not.

This means that when Anthony was watching Space Ghost, it was really 3:30 AM instead of 2:30, which changes the dean's time of death. Mindy's car had been returned the hotel by then.

  • Lamb and Sacks go to the O'Dells when a break-in is reported. It's Steve Batando, who hits Lamb with a baseball bat, killing him. Keith becomes the new sheriff.
