Plot EditVeronica is losing sleep--and focus--as she is plagued by dreams in which the students killed in the bus crash confront her. She discovers a disturbing drawing on the back of one of the bus' seats, leading her to suspect that the killer drew it. It turns out to be a red herring, however.
Veronica also learns that Dick had had a fling with Betina Marone, one of the girls on the bus--and that she was "not a satisfied customer." Dick left her a voicemail that she played for all of the students on the bus. Dick informs her that he gave Betina a gift bag from the Sharks trip.
When a large number of students are diagnosed with a medical ailment that gives them the right to postpone school tests and projects, a concerned Principal Clemmons hires Keith to investigate the validity of the claims. He is able to secure proof that the diagnoses are fraudulent, allowing Clemmons to refuse any further abuse, to the considerable consternation of Veronica's primary rival for the Kane Scholarship.
