The episode starts off with “Veronica Mars” creator, Rob Thomas, being interviewed. He says that a “Veronica Mars” spinoff is not happening, and that he would be aware if there was. 

"...Those are just rumors. Fans start them all the time," he says.

After the “previously on” segment, the scene opens with Ryan Hansen and Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls on “Veronica Mars”) playing video games talking about Ryan's deal with Warner Bros. This is the first time we see Dohring on the show.  

Jason Dohring is pleased to be back for a spinoff with co-star Ryan Hansen. We get to see him working out shirtless and showing off is in-shape body. Dohring and Hansen bicker a bit about what the name of the show should be called. Dohring compares their duo to shows like “Starsky and Hutch.” The diva that Doring portrays to be tells Ryan that he should use his trainer and lose some body fat. 

When Dohring is ready to go home, he like Kristen Bell in episode one said Ryan is like a brother to him and will support him by joining the show’s cast. 

After Dohring leaves, Ryan is talking to his camera men, who zoom in as he talks self-consciously.

The super short show ends with Ryan video chatting with Chris Lowell, who played Piz on the show and in the “Veronica Mars” movie. Ryan asks him to join the cast as well, though Lowell does’t seem too excited about the idea, and says Hansen’s idea is rather “ambitious.” When Ryan actually makes the offer to join the cast, Lowell tells him to f*** off. 

No worries—Hansen doesn’t take it too personally and says it’s all part of Chris Lowell’s plan to negotiate. Keeping up with the positive ending, ladies—you get a peek at Lowell’s behind. 

Till next Tuesday…
