8 Ways Veronica Mars Left Us Hanging
The end of the CW series Veronica Mars was a tough one for anyone who was a fan during its original run, from 2004-2007. It was one of those shows that was underappreciated by the masses, but intensely appreciated by its fans. So it was always up against the ropes, in terms of its fate with the network, especially during the third and final season, which was shortened (by two episodes) and interrupted (there was an eight-week hiatus). The series’ cancellation wasn’t officially confirmed until a few weeks after the season three finale aired, and all the uncertainty led to a lot of loose ends – like these:
8. What became of Weevil’s debit card machine?
Weevil (aka Eli Navarro) was Veronica’s connection to the other side of the tracks. You’ve heard of the fictional stereotype “hooker with a heart of gold?” Well, Weevil was the opposite gender equivalent. He was the leader of a motorcycle gang, often in trouble with the law, but he did have a good heart and was often ready to help Veronica – although sometimes for a price. He was a key character throughout the series – in fact he was the title character in the series’ penultimate episode, “Weevils Wobble But They Don’t Go Down.” In that one, he’s been falsely arrested for selling fake debit cards. Veronica proves his innocence but, the last we see him, he gets his hands, thanks to Veronica’s tip, on a machine that makes fake debit cards. Then what? Does he get into more trouble? Who knows! We never hear anything more about it.
7. Did Keith become Sheriff again?
When the series opened, Keith, Veronica’s ever-loving dad, had just been ousted as Sheriff of Neptune. He had accused Veronica’s best friend’s father of murdering his own daughter, then another man came forward as the killer. He was an outcast in the tight-knit, hoity-toity town and became a private investigator – which ultimately inspired Veronica to do the same. However, in season three, episode 14, much time has passed and when the current Sheriff is killed, Keith is named acting Sheriff. He then decides to run to be officially elected to the office. In the last moments of the series, things aren’t looking good for Keith’s chances – he’s been charged for destroying evidence to protect Veronica, who is seen casting her vote before the final credits roll. Sure, it didn’t look good – but what happened? MOVIE UPDATE: It’s revealed in the 2014 feature film that Keith returned to his PI biz, with Dan Lamb (son of a former Sheriff) in the Sheriff’s office.
