Advertisements Great insight, and I think you hit on what they were trying to do. Part of Veronica's growing up process, I think. She has a young person's conviction that if you are in the right, and find out the "truth' everything will turn out okay. And although thats the way it normally is in tv land, this show is willing to push the envelope enough to say sometimes thats not enough.. We also have to remember this is Neptune-there's probably a reason AE was willing to be tried there instead of asking for a another venue-he could have easily claimed it would be impossible to get a fair trial there with everybody knowing about the crime. But he didn't want a fair trial, did he?
