As an observation, why haven't the girls set up any kind of recording device to capture evidence?
It would seem rather convenient considering how often they come in contact those who intentionally want to hurt them, like Ian for example. He verbally threatened Spencer several times and even if he was speaking around in cryptic tones it was enough to warrant some suspicion. Last night when they were overhearing the confrontation between Ian and Spencer from the church, while it was a regular phone call could it have been possible to record the message once realizing what was going on, especially when he was confessing that he was there the night Alison had disappeared? Before I could understand them not wanting to do something, but it's exceeded further than just anonymous text messages about their secrets and into life or death territory and even incriminating situations that you'd think it would have crossed their minds to be extra careful or at least be prepared for the unexpected to happen.
Perhaps I've seen far too much crime dramas and mysteries, but it's ridiculous that this far into everything that's happened they haven't upped their game. I know it's scary when you have no clue who is watching you, and if they have more than one person involved with spying on them. But I want the girls to win, to get ahead of the game and outsmart whoever is doing this to them. It's time to Veronica Mars it up, yo.
I also want to read the books, or attempt to because I've heard it's a mixed bag depending on your type of reading material. Also the fact that the show is significantly different from the books, but that's to be expected as most onscreen adaptations take on a life of their own. I just don't want to discover secrets too early without seeing it on screen first, if that makes sense. If anyone has read the books, let me know if the first one is safe to read considering where we are in the show.
