Goodbye, Fair Veronica
It's over. We've watched all the Veronica Mars there is to watch. Commence weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The show only had three seasons, unfortunately, and was canceled so the ends were not tied up neatly. Maybe that's just as well, because in my head I have an elaborate subsequent season. Not the existing promo for the fourth season, but my own final season that takes place at Hearst College, where our favorite characters spent the third season. I've spent a couple of sleepless nights turning it all over in my head and I have it figured out - a new major mystery that carries us through, how to get rid of the characters I don't like and what to do with the characters I do like. Some little details that were never answered in previous seasons are resolved. The boring and the villains are vanquished, a semi-villain is redeemed and all the heroes end up in the proper relationships.
And, if I figure out what to do with Weevil, I bet I'll be able to sleep at night...
