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.Patrick Ecclesine / © The CW / Courtesy Everett Collection
