Okay: Hulus Veronica Mars Season Four has been out for eight hours. You had a chance to look at it and freak out completely. It's time to talk about the end.
If you have not seen all episodes of the new season of Veronica Mars including the finale, and do not want to be spoiled, please close this window now. Because at the end of this season, some important things happen, which we will unpack right away.
The following happens in the finale of Veronica Mars
One of the Veronica Mars was Veronica's turbulent romance with the disturbed evil Logan Echolls. The TV show saw them split up and come together again and again, but by the end of the 2014 movie they had reunited and things felt pretty stable.
But the creator Rob Thomas has repeatedly and emphatically stated the following: (a) He thinks that when a couple is together and happy, the story is over, and (b) He really wants to continue telling the story of . Veronica Mars .
So many fans were probably not too surprised when they discovered that Thomas had spent some time in the season four finale grappling with the happy experiences that Logan and Veronica found in the film in 2014. It's definitely possible that certain authors of certain types of stories keep things fresh and interesting even after they've put their central pair together, but Thomas has always said that he's not one of those authors. This means he has to detach Logan and Veronica to make more squadrons of Veronica Mars after this.
But the fans may be shocked by how persistently the show tore the couple apart by the end of the fourth season. Because the finale ends with the death of Logan.
Logan suggests Veronica in the season premiere, but she rejects him immediately A recall on the very first line of the original series : "I'll never marry." (This line was taken from the pilot's transmission version but it lives on through the DVDs and YouTube.) However, in the seventh episode of the Eight-Season Season, she changes her mind and decides she's ready In the finale, Logan and Veronica exchange rings in a tiny town hall ceremony after Veronica and Keith Neptune hit Spring Break bombers.
(Incidentally, the bomber is Patton Oswalt's Penn, whom I have personally classified as a threat as soon as he became Verona's prime suspect an episode before I expected her to catch the bomber in a truly elegant fashion.)
But then! We cut from the wedding to Logan and Veronica packing for their honeymoon. Logan runs outside to move her car for street cleaning ("He's shot," said my companion), and Veronica opens the window to continue talking to him. [Hewillbeshot! "said my comrade more insistently.)
As they talk, Veronica remembers the mocking Limerick that Penn, the bomber, had left her and hinted where his next bomb would be planted – and suddenly she realizes that the bomb is in the trunk of her car and ready to go .
Before she can say more than Logan's name, the car explodes. And then, a year later, we drove to a grieving Veronica who was driving through the streets of Neptune.
It's a shocking twist that puts an end to a television season that has been a more pleasant eyebrow lift than a dazzling one. When he killed Logan, Thomas eliminated the character that had the biggest fanbase among the supporting actors in Veronica Mars (19459004). And he made that death permanent.
We will have much more to say about this change of action – including a conversation with Rob Thomas – on Vox.com on Monday.
