With the “Veronica Mars” movie just a couple days away, you may be in the middle of a last-minute binge watching spree, reacquainting yourself with the series. If you don’t have time for that though, never fear: Zap2it is ready to break down the series finale, so you’re not behind.
When last we left the city of Neptune, Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni) was charged with losing evidence that implicated Veronica (Kristen Bell) in a theft. That news broke the day Neptune elected a new sheriff, all but assuring Keith didn’t stand a chance.
The sad thing is, she was actually guilty of the theft. After a secret society leaked a sex tape with a remarkable lack of sex, starring her and then-boyfriend Piz (Chris Lowell), Veronica tried to bring them down by stealing a hard drive filled with secrets. The viral video did not sit well with former beau Logan (Jason Dohring), who confronted Piz, causing Veronica to seemingly shut the door on him forever.
With a newer relationship on the rocks, an old one destroyed and the rubble of her dad’s career sitting at her feet, what was Veronica to do? Fans had to wait nearly seven long years to find out.
What we do know if Veronica bolted from Neptune shortly after the series finale, relocating to the east coast. There she left the private eye life behind and pursued a legal degree. The nice guy also finished first, as she reconnected with Piz in New York and the two have been together a year.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a true “Veronica Mars” movie if she didn’t find herself back in Neptune with a case to solve. Where the story goes from there, you’ll just have to watch to find out.
“Veronica Mars” is in theaters March 14.
