Saturday, Day of Pi Sig party


(Massive confusion: It is unclear if Keith telling Cyrus about Mindy and Hank, Mindy getting the pills, Mindy and Hank checking into the Grand, Cyrus being killed happened on December 10th/11th or December 9th/10th. It's unclear if the writers are being literal or figurative with the phrase "the night of December 10th." If they are being literal, that means the Dean was killed on December 10th 1:30 am, and all that other stuff happened on the 9th. If they are being figurative, that means the Dean was killed on December 11th 1:30 am, and all that other stuff happened on the 10th. Since the prescription was phoned in on December 10th, I'm assuming that that the other stuff happened on the 10th and the Dean was killed on the 11th.)

Keith tells Cyrus that Mindy and Landry are having an affair, and Hank checks into the Neptune Grand using the pseudonym Rory Finch. The check in dates coincide with the nights of Mindy's junior league meetings. (3.09 "Spit & Eggs")

Between 1:51 am - 2:59 am

(Potential goof: Keith only questions Mindy about one phone call to Landry; he doesn't mention a second phone call. However, in 3.13 "Postgame Mortem" Keith says the call was made at 1:32 am, and in 3.15 "Papa's Cabin" Keith says a call was made after Mindy left the hotel. Since Mindy hadn't yet talked to Cyrus in the phone call that Tim and Veronica listened to and she knew that Cyrus's windows had been egged when she talks to Hank, this means either there was a second call, Mindy lied, or the writers screwed up the timeline...again.)

week of February 14, 2007 (3.14 "Mars, Bars")

Lamb investigates further into the O'Dell death when Keith brings him more information. Keith tells Lamb that Cyrus had run out of Xanax on December 10th, and Mindy picked up the prescription. Lamb confiscates the stuff in the Dean's office to dust for prints and brings Mindy in for questioning.

Mindy tells Lamb that she did not leave the hotel room that night and she doesn't remember the movie that was playing because she fell asleep. When asked about the possibility of pills missing from the December 10th refill, Mindy says she took some of the pills because Cyrus's death left her with a certain amount of anxiety.

Veronica realizes channel 9 pushes their programming back an hour for Clippers game, which means the ear witness saw Space Ghost at 3:30, not 2:30 and the shot occurred at 3:20. Mindy's car was returned to the hotel at 2:59, which means Mindy was at the hotel when Cyrus was killed.

Forensics find Batando's prints on the keyboard from the Dean's office. When Lamb tells Batando that his fingerprints are on the keyboard, Steve says that Mindy is setting him up. Later, Lamb investigates a break-and-enter at the O'Dell home and is killed by Steve Batando. Keith resumes as sheriff.

In the basement of Hearst College, Weevil finds a bag in the flue. Inside the bag, there is a shirt with blood and a pair of blood-stained gloves. Sheriff Mars brings Mindy in for questioning, shows her photos of Hank's bloody shirt, and tells her, "Either you're covering for him, or he's covering for you."

Mid February 2007

Mindy tells Keith that she hired him to investigate Cyrus's death because she knew Cyrus didn't kill himself. Until Keith showed her Hank's bloody clothes, she did not believe that Hank killed Cyrus. Based on Mindy's statement that Landry was panicked about losing his career and that he wasn't at the hotel room when she returned, Keith arrests Landry. When Keith questions Landry about the gloves and shirt covered in O'Dell's blood, Landry accuses Mindy of setting him up. Landry tells Keith he stopped at a convenience store for cigarettes and he gave a couple of cigarettes to a brunette female at the time of O'Dell's murder.

Hank asks Tim to find out who bugged his phone and to find the convenience-store brunette. Since Veronica is good in the field while he is just a thinker, Tim asks Veronica to help him clear Landry. Veronica finds "the brunette." "The brunette" tells Sheriff Mars that she bummed a cigarette from Landry around 3:30 am. Hank is released, and Veronica and Tim tell him that Mindy skipped town after getting the insurance money. Veronica and Tim break into Batando's place and find recordings of Hank's phone calls. Veronica and Tim find out that "the brunette's" son knew Hank from the juvie board. "The brunette" recants her statement and tells Sheriff Mars that "Hank" called her and threatened to take her son off probation unless she backs up Landry's convenience store alibi. Veronica hands over the recordings to Keith and tells him that she thinks Mindy did it. Keith tells her that Landry disappeared.

Mindy gets a check from Regency Life Insurance. She buys a boat, sends her kids to her parents in England, and skips town. Hank tracks Mindy down to Papa's Cabin in Cabo San Lucas and sneaks onto her boat. Keith and the Mexican police find Landry on the boat. He tells Keith that Mindy killed Cyrus and he planted Batando's keyboard to cover for her. He tells Keith that he just wanted to talk to Mindy to find out how she could turn on him, but they fought, he hit her, and she fell overboard. Mindy body's washes ashore and Landry is charged with manslaughter.

Tim takes over Hank's classes while the college finds a replacement. As Tim is explaining to the class how Landry killed O'Dell, Veronica finds a bug in her phone and realizes that Tim murdered Dean to destroy Landry. Tim set up the false confession of "the brunette" to taint Hank's alibi to make sure Hank went down. Tim is arrested and confesses to murdering the Dean. (3.15 "Papa's Cabin")
