  • Too bad that it signals an end to the series

    8.5
    The episode was cleverly made and was interesting enough, however, it was clearly a season ender and not a series finale.

    its just sad we wont know what happened to the series. I hope the creator does continue with a movie or special which will answer all of the open questions left hanging on the series.

    a highlight of the episode is the attack of logan against piz, showing logan still has strong feelings for veronica.

    the question on weavil's mind as what he will do with the machine and if veronica will pursue him is also left unanswered.

    the sheriff elections also makes an interesting twist in this episode.moreless
  • A good season finale, but a bad series finale

    9.5
    Well, it was a very good episode, but they left soooooooooo many questions unanswered. If the show doesn't come back, which they say it won't, how are those questions going to be answered? Does Keith go to jail? Who does Veronica end up with? Does she take the internship? It's just very frustrating. Don't get me wrong, it was a great episode, and I enjoyed watching it very much, but a little closure would be nice. I just started watching Veronica Mars when it came on the CW. I liked it so much I went on EBAY and bought the first 2 seasons! And now, a short season later, it's kaput. Veronica Mars, RIP.moreless
  • Yeah Weevil gets to be in an episode! I just wish they would have him doing something besides getting framed or being a janitor. Good Episode though! I really hope Veronica Mars gets renewed for another season or I'm not watching CW again!moreless

    Weevil gets framed for making fake school ID cards. His one phone call at the sheriffs office he calls Veronica to help him. She eventually finds out its a group of students, when the whole group confronts her and tries to make a deal with her and she pretends to tape their confession. At the beginning of the episode Piz and Veronica get more intimate in his dorm room. At the end of the episode Dick shows logan a video of Veronica And Piz getting naked, that was emailed to him.moreless
  • Veronica Mars helps out Weevil after being arrested for selling fake student debit cards.

    Oh, my gosh this episode got me pumping. Seriously, hate when privileged kids try to get away with things. Like for instance setting up a wrongful accused ex-con. I couldn't believe it when Logan bashed up Piz. Seriously, the dude still has it bad for Veronica. I so loved Logan & Veronica together. I know he means well but he can't help it. Poor Piz! Oh, how I love to watch Veronica out smart these peps. Thinking that they are smarter than her & can get away with it. But think again when you plan to cross paths with her!moreless
  • This week it's Wallace/Weevils turn to come back!

    9.0
    Ok, so I have yet to see the series finale but having just watched this episode I feel rather underwhelmed by it. I just feel as though the finale (based on how I felt about this episode) isn't going to be that amazing. I hope I'm wrong... but the writing for this episode wasn't anything amazing yet it certainly was enjoyable (I need to rewatch). Maybe it was because I was semi-spoiled thus I sorta knew beforehand about the Piz/Logan smack down and the sex tape. However, having thought about it this episode was vastly better than any of the other stand alone episodes! Which is why it gets a 9.



    What I did love however was Dick, wonderful Dick emoting once again. It's an odd day when Dick made me cry yet again! I'm really pleased Cassidy's death has been acknowledged since the events of Not Pictured have been largely ignored which has IMO, been one of the greatest failings of this season. If Veronica can't deal with her rape issues - (she should have some) then at least we got Dick dealing with Cassidys death. I liked the parallel to the Pilot with Wallace flying the plane on the beach... seeing as though Logan was verbally angry with Veronica/Piz it reminded me a little of the scene in Leave it to Beaver - the beach scene between LoVe. Having Wallace and Weevil back wasn't enough to make this feel like an old school episode but it definitely helped! I'm sad that there were no Logan/Weevil scenes since those are absolute gold, but his scenes with Ronnie were awesome. I didn't realize just how much I missed both those characters until this episode. One complaint which felt glaring was the way Logan has been written this year, he feels wholly different to the boy we met in S1-2. I'm possibly more sad that I won't see his effeminate charismatic sarcasm ever again (except on S1-2 DVDs!). On a shallow note Jason Dorhing looked ridiculously cute when he was sitting with Piz/Veronica at the beach. Though Logan looked like a lost little boy which made me sad for him, I want him to have a happy ending dammit! As the femme fatale of this show he deserves to get the girl, or run away with the money or something else femme fatales do. Although, I do think Logan was more his season one self in this scene. He was bitter and verbally aggressive. I loved it! Piz/Veronica actually made me cringe for the first time, I'd found them very sweet and watchable until this episode. But that whole phone call before they had sex was so fake and out of character. Veronica was way too comfortable being cutesy and that's not the person she is, where's my hardboiled cynical loner? I think KB overplayed it which is a shame, but whatever. The mystery itself was ok... I do think college wasn't the best setting for Veronica Mars as a neo-noir concept and I definitely miss the overarching mystery-story's presence. I don't think this show works as in a standalone format. Well for the penultimate episode it was good in its moments for the most part, but the mystery wasn't great. Oh and the Logan/Piz beat down was a thing of beauty. Rob Thomas is a whore indeed.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Veronica approaches Jaleesa Jones in the food court, Jaleesa's standing at the counter reading a book, which she's holding with both hands. When she answers Veronica's question, she puts the book down and puts her left hand on the cash register. The camera angle changes to show Veronica, and we can see that Jaleesa is still holding the book, which she then puts down for a second time. The book in question is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, published in 1957.

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Veronica: Who says it was you?
      Weevil: A couple of college kids pulled me out of a lineup.
      Veronica: Why do you think they're fingering you?
      Weevil: Because I'm easy. Easy like Sunday morning. Ex-con and all.
      Veronica: Except they'd have to know you were an ex-con. Have you been going around campus sharing the story of your personal journey?
      Weevil: Only in your criminology class when you asked me to.
      Veronica: Oh, yeah, right. Oops.

    • Dick: I know you and me haven't always been, like, best buds, but do you want to know why?
      Mac: Not really.
      Dick: 'Cause you were both so smart, you and Beav. And... and I could tell, you know, that you thought I was an idiot... So I figured my best bet was to... you know how a best defense is a good offense? So, I thought... The way I treated you and Beav was totally uncool, and I'm totally sorry for all those things I said.
      Mac: Yeah. Okay. Accepted.
      Dick: It's cool. You're so cool. I get it now what my brother saw in you.

    • Veronica: If we're assuming someone's framing you, they had only twenty-four hours--
      Weevil: Whoa, if we're assuming? If we're not assuming, then I guess we're assuming that I did it, which means that I hired you to get to the bottom of my own crime? That's a pretty dumb assumption, don't you think?
      Veronica: Touchy! I'll rephrase. Whoever framed you had twenty-four hours to get your fingerprints on the ringer ID machine. We need to retrace your steps. Try and remember everything you touched the day before you got busted.
      Weevil: A day in the life of Weevil's hands, huh? Let's see. I woke up, I hopped in the shower--
      Veronica: What say we fast-forward to your day on campus?

    • Mac: What's with the food police?
      Veronica: She has the right to remain famished.

    • Dick: That's Veronica.
      Logan: Yeah. I'm aware of that.
      Dick: And that's that Piz dude. (the video shows Veronica and Piz having sex) Yeah, here's the money part. Not what I'd call bodacious, but firm, supple, pleasing to the eye.

    • (Piz and Veronica are curled up on the couch. They start to kiss, but jump apart when Keith walks in)
      Veronica: What happened to the courtesy knock?
      Keith: What happened to whalebone corsets and courting chaperones? Who wants falafel?

    • Veronica: What?
      Mac: Miss Mars uses Venus razor.
      Veronica: Because if she doesn't, her legs look like Pluto's.
      Mac: And she's down-to-earth, to boot.
      Veronica: I think I read in Teen People that a clean leg shave will make that special boy sit up and take notice.
      Mac: I read in FHM that boys like bare breasts.
      Veronica: Interesting. I did not know that. Bare breasts, you say? Hmm.

    • Veronica: All those weeks of thinking about you, and... and missing you... and all those pent-up feelings. What am I ever gonna do with all of them?
      Piz: I-I have a couple... million suggestions.
      Veronica: Hmm.
      Piz: You know, like...
      Veronica: Mmm. So, what are these suggestions?
      Piz: Oh, you know, you don't need them.
      Veronica: Does it involve me...doing a sort of dance-squad-like routine? Perhaps... a cheer?
      Piz: Actually, it does.
      Veronica: I was kidding.
      Piz: Then no.
      Veronica: Did it involve me being naked?
      Piz: It did.

    • Dick: Man, this new wetsuit's like a cheap motel. No ballroom.

    • (talking about buying a new answering machine)
      Keith: You may have gone digital, but I remain firmly analog.
      Veronica: No, I'm digital. You remain firmly cheap.

    • Keith: (about attending Piz's radio talk show) Fine. If you think Vinnie is willing to miss his morning cartoons, I'll be there.

    • Veronica: This is your end-of-term project? I should have been an aerospace major.
      Wallace: A one-thirty-second model of an amphibious regional turboprop. I call it the Sea Monkey.
      Veronica: Which would make more sense if monkeys were amphibious...or could fly.

    • Wallace: Only love life I have is some dude who's always following me around.
      Veronica: What, like you're being cruised?
      Wallace: Yeah. Remind me which color bandana I'm supposed to wear that says I'm straight...but flattered and non-judgmental.

    • Mac: (about Piz) He wants to date you and be near you? Greedy little bugger.
      Veronica: And if he didn't care, I'd probably be complaining about that...to my girlfriend...while waiting to pay for frozen yogurt. I'm a girl!

    • Russell Merchant: Says here you spent a little time in prison last year.
      Weevil: So did Martha Stewart. Now does that mean I don't get my benefits?

    • Veronica: Weevil, you're wobbling!
      Weevil: Yeah, and I'm gonna take the fall... unless you can help me.

    • Mac: Have you considered letting Piz know you're bummed about the prospect of being apart from him this summer?
      Veronica: Simple. Direct. Honest. Mac, that's almost crazy enough to work.
      Mac: Just sharing my vast relationship wisdom.
