Yes, people, you read that right. Damn hot Jason Dohring will be gracing our TV again very soon.

I woke up very late today and thank God that after I had my breakfast, I immediately went online. I opened my email and received the best.news.ever. After the long wait, Jason Dohring is finally back! Too bad it’s not for a Veronica Mars movie and not together with our favorite feisty blonde. But he will be with another feisty blonde, this time, it’s Buffy. Yes, Jason Dohring will join the cast of Ringer with no other than Sarah Michelle Gellar.

According to cwtv.com, Ringer is about a woman who, after witnessing a murder, goes on the run, hiding out by assuming the life of her wealthy identical twin sister – only to learn that her sister’s seemingly idyllic life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she’s trying to leave behind.

Jason is not one of the main cast but it’s not only a guest spot, either. He will be a recurring character, playing Mr Carpenter (I know, I know, after Logan Echolls, he should’ve been given a better name),  a high school teacher to Julie, Siobhan’s troubled daughter. Siobhan is the rich one of the twins played by Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Jason Dohring is famous for two roles, as the rich, abused bad boy Logan Echolls in Veronica Mars and as the rich, bad boy vampire Josef Kostan in Moonlight. Both shows are shortlived but his roles in them, definitely memorable.

Buffy meets Logan, my fandom is, once again, colliding.

I found it! I found it! [does a little dance]

I found the Roswell clip where Jason Dohring was a guest. It’s in Season 2, “Cry Your Name.”

He looks soooo young. And my gosh, his voice was so different from his voice when he was Logan from Veronica Mars. It was weird. If I don’t see that it was his face doing the talking, I will never associate that voice with him. I think I’ve listened to Logan talked a thousand times so yeah, it was that different. But I guess they have a term for that: it’s puberty.

You gonna have to play the video for a while before reaching his scenes.

He is his school’s “obligatory psychotic jackass.” Yes, he can be a good friend but once you crossed over his bad side, be warned, for he will torment you every single day. He’s a freakin’ asshole that he will not think twice of swinging a crowbar and bashing your headlights. Yeah, he is like that.

“And let’s not forget Logan Echolls.
Every school has an obligatory psychotic jackass.
He’s ours.”

 

But what exactly drives this person to be this kind of jackass? People may think he is living a privileged life but if you look closely, this seemingly perfect life is full of cracks – cracks so huge that it can crash anybody’s world. His girlfriend died. His mother jumped off a bridge and took her own life. His long abusive father is an adulterer and a murderer. Now, he is Logan, a tormented and tortured soul. Yes, he is damaged, but is he damaged beyond repair? Is he an un-reformable bad boy?

 

“And then, there’s bachelor number three. He’s got it all. Motive. Access.
Looks like an evil-doer, smells like an evil-doer.
But surprisingly, not so much.”

In his crazy life, he met Veronica – the person he loves the most. He was his girlfriend’s best friend and he was her boyfriend’s best friend. They were The Fab Four. But Lilly’s death changed everything. He started to hate her but, he cannot hate her forever and ended up falling in love with her.

But life is not always colorful in LoVe-Land for these two star-crossed lovers are so opposite that they clash most of the time. You just can’t combine Logan’s learned hedonism with Veronica’s unrealistic expectations and trust issues.

“And you know what? I’m not built to stand on the sidelines. And I think we have a choice.
I think we can take a tough, but survivable amount of pain now…or stay together and deal with unbearable pain later. So I vote for the pain now.
But I’m always here… if you need anything.
But you never need anything.”
-Logan

They get together and have a few months of contentment but once the veil is lifted, reality smacks them hard in the face and they break up. Too jaded for each other, too broken for anyone else. Can’t trust each other, can’t love anyone else, can’t be alone. How can you even begin to describe a relationship like this? I have no idea.

But one thing’s for sure , their relationship is EPIC.


Logan: I thought our story was epic, you know, you and me.
Veronica: Epic how?
Logan: Spanning years and continents. Lives ruined, bloodshed. Epic.
Veronica: Come on. Ruined lives? Bloodshed? You really think a relationship should be that hard?
Logan: No one writes songs about the ones that come easy.
