"The Quick and the Wed" was the fifteenth episode of the second season of Veronica Mars.



Jane Kuhne informs Veronica that her sister's place hasn't been ransacked – it's just messy.

Wallace's new girlfriend Jane Kuhne enlists Veronica's help when her older sister Heidi appears to have become a "runaway bride." The initial clues suggest that something more disturbing might have happened to her on the way to the altar. Eventually, Veronica understands that she simply went to see a friend in need, but learned something valuable about her betrothed in the process.

Keith and Veronica decide that they have no choice but to go to Sheriff Lamb with the evidence they've uncovered about the bus crash. Lamb issues a warrant for Terrence Cook's arrest. But, before he can be arrested, Ms. Dumas's father shoots him as he tries to break into her house.


"Quid Pro Quo, Mrs. C. Quid Pro Quo."

Kendall Casablancas visits Aaron Echolls in prison to get him to invest in Phoenix Land Trust – and is persuaded to put on a little show for him through the glass.

Hannah's father cuts a deal with Logan to drop his testimony if Logan promises to stay away from Hannah. After he recants, the murder case against Logan falls apart.
