Ain't It Cool News (

‘He Disappeared!!’
It's The Last
Till Late April!!

“I just remembered I need to return ‘Caged Heat’ to the video store.”
I am – Hercules!!
Another stellar episode last week, which began with Veronica in county stir and ended with Veronica’s daddy running the entire sheriff’s department. Tonight brings the last new “Veronica Mars” installment until late April, and the installment that concludes the Dean O’Dell storyline. Have we seen the last of Mars Investigations? The CW says no:
Veronica catches Tim Foyle (guest star James Jordan, "Without A Trace"), breaking into Mars Investigations. Meanwhile, Keith questions Mindy O'Dell, finally making her believe that Hank Landry killed her husband, and Keith arrests Landry in the middle of a class. Later, Wallace notices Logan and Parker enjoying a nice lunch together.
9 p.m. Tuesday. The CW.

    My theory:

    by OhioBobcat

    O'Dell killed himself to screw his wife over. He set up her and Landry so if she tried to get insurance money she'd screw herself, her boyfriend, or both. Sort of the opposite of the last two weeks' mystery.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 4:12 a.m. CST


    by Bob of the Shire

    It's his angsty son that they introduced and set up for no, as of yet, explainable reason. His mom is lying to cover for him.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 4:17 a.m. CST


    by Menchekia

    It's Tim. He's pissed off at Landry because Landry is really kind of a jackass. So he set him up. I mean, Veronica did say that some elements from her paper on the perfect murder were used. And who grades them papers? TIM. And she hasn't suspected him yet. It's always the guy who's not on the suspect list.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 7:13 a.m. CST

    So, not Landry?

    by ChildOfMen

    Hard to blame the synopsis, but I wish the show would have left it more ambiguous about whether Landry was the killer. It seems like one of those things where they've tried to make it obviously him that everyone watching knows it can't be him. Regarding O'Dell's angsty son, I read that if the show hadn't been shortened, they would have had time to do an actual show dealing with and setting up the character, but they didn't, so he ends up as a loose end.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 7:56 a.m. CST

    Maybe Landry?

    by godric

    It's obvious that we're supposed to think it's NOT Landry since everything points to that it is. So they could double cross us...I'm curious as to why they've hidden the dean's visit and lied so completely. I think Tim Foyle is too obvious a choice. Plus his last name: Foyle. Foil. He's there to trick us, to be the foil to Veronica...her rival. The show could be much more interesting if he sticks around. Still, this mystery has been great and I'm pumped for tonight.

    Last Gilmore Girls until April, too.

    by ExcaliburFfolkes

    The CW says: Rory gets a call from the New York Times about an interview; Rory and Lorelai plan Lane's Baby Shower while Lane fights with her mom over how the twins will be raised; Logan admits his business disaster to Rory and heads off to Las Vegas to party with old Life and Death Brigade friends Clin and Finn. (Thought I'd report on it since Herc refuses to cover the show anymore.)

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 8:17 a.m. CST

    Oops, that last line should have read:

    by ExcaliburFfolkes

    wow.. her accent is flawless. I wonder how much of a 'native speaker' she is

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 8:51 a.m. CST

    It's nice to see all the different theories...

    by DanielKurland

    Shows how well the show is made. IF it's not the Dean's son, it's going to be Tim, if only for the fact that last week neither Keith or Veronica bugged his phone, so it was surely Tim trying to figure out if Landry is on to him or not. I really hope Landry sticks around, I've enjoyed him. It's also a little disheartening that this may be the last "arc" episode of the show ever.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 10:40 a.m. CST


    by Reedyb UFF

    Tim Foyle: The factors for are that he is checking out the clues that the police forgot (perhaps to see if he's on the list). He has the opportunity and ability to put the bug's in Landry's phone (also to see if he's a suspect), and he was all mysterious with that other girl at the end of the last arc. The Dean's Adopted Son: The fingerprints of Richard Greico were found on the keyboard, meaning someone tried to set him up. The kid may be angry because of his extortion to get bone marrow. Also, he could have hired Vinnie to bug Landry. Landry: He has motive and opportunity and may have bugged his own phone to throw others off the scent. Hard to think it's him with the promos saying it's him. This isn't ABC after all. The Dean's Wife: Who knows. Seems too easy. Logan: C'mon, why not? Parker: After all, she's after Logan. Veronica: Now that would end the series on a bang! or her Dad could hide her guilt. Lamb: Hey, he's dead. Why not? Vinnie: He would have taken the scotch, so not him.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 12:36 p.m. CST

    One of the biggest factors of who did it...

    by DanielKurland

    Is that Thomas has stated that because they lost an episode in this arc, one aspect they mentioned couldn't be elaborated on, and I'm assuming this is the stuff with the son, as he's seldom been seen. This also could relate to the phone bugging though, as there was no resolution on that, unless that's revealed in this episode. I think one of the best points brought up in this thread is how Foyle's explosion at the party was probably him just trying to draw attention to himself to show that he was at the party for an alibi. That makes a lot of sense to me. You can also think about how Thomas specifically wanted to re-use James Jordan from his season 2 role for Tim Foyle, maybe because he just liked him as an actor, or maybe because he wanted to have him be this eventual antagonist.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 2:42 p.m. CST

    re: DanielKurland

    by KoozyK

    the phone bugging was most likely foyle. and the fact that the episodes were cut won't likely matter since the second half of the season was going to be more self-contained mysteries. so, if you cut those and just tighten the mythology, nothing should go missing or unexplained.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 3:21 p.m. CST

    Yeah it seems like it's Tim Foyle...

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    Because neither Veronica nor Keith have suspected him yet. I would accept Landry as the murderer, but the preview ad plays up too much the possibility that Landry is the culprit. I don't have a good theory as to why Foyle would murder O'Dell, however.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 3:23 p.m. CST

    Keith as Sheriff...

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    Perhaps we will learn that Keith is only serving as an acting sheriff for Neptune temporarily. And later in this season he will be considered for the job permanently but decide to not take it.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 3:43 p.m. CST


    by punto

    well, the sherif seems to be an elected office, remember the election last season? so it's probably not a job that you just land by getting a phone call. on the other hand, the law should probably have a very extensive setcion on how to replace a sheriff, since out of all the elected positions, sheriff is the only one that gets shot at on a regular basis.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 3:46 p.m. CST


    by zabu 123

    You guys, Lamb's totally not dead. He faked his death so he could go deep undercover and crack this O'Dell case wide open with a never before seen from him level of competence. Well, anyway, you'll all see tonight.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 4:01 p.m. CST

    re: punto

    by KoozyK

    the sheriff is an elected position and remember that mars was the runner-up to lamb. it makes sense that he would fill the role. <b> and i don't think foyle is the killer. frankly, each season, it's always been someone who we had no idea could be a suspect until the last minute. to pull that a third time would be cheap in my opinion.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 4:16 p.m. CST


    by DanielKurland

    I know nothing should be cut from the mystery, but I'm basing this on an exact quote from Thomas where he says that the only time he doesn't follow up comments or clues on the show is when they are red herrings, EXCEPT with one detail from this mystery due to the reduced order, and how he was upset that it couldn't be fleshed out enough and hopes that viewers don't get upset. Also, if Lamb faked his death and solved the O'Dell case, I'd love him even more, but I don't think that's the case at all.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 5 p.m. CST


    by KoozyK

    ok, i didn't know of the rob thomas quote, i now understand. in the interview with kristen, muhney said he's dead and has already shot a pilot for next season, so, i doubt he faked his death. besides, do you really think he had the thought process to devise some plan where he faked his death? i don't.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 6:12 p.m. CST


    by Reedyb UFF

    Foyle went to the party for the alibi. Wants to leave clues that made it look like Landry did it to prove that he is smarter than Veronica and can plan the perfect murder. Or maybe not.....

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 8:10 p.m. CST

    Fuck, I missed who wrote it...

    by DanielKurland

    Did anyone see? Also, the idea of Foyle setting up Landry to prove to Veronica he can plan a perfect murder and be smarter than her makes a lot of sense right now.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 8:13 p.m. CST

    This episode was secluded enough that it could maybe get a nomination, although the conclusion to the rapist, was in my opinion better.

    Nice wrap-up.

    by CatVutt

    Great stuff, loved the quiet ending of Keith and Veronica having dinner and watching the news. It was pretty nailed down that Foyle was going to be culpable as soon as we heard the audio of Landry badmouthing him. But I love the fact that the major tip-off, the disposable cell, was right there in plain sight, and it didn't click with me. It seemed odd he'd leave it in his trash, but that was about it. Kinda sucks that Landry actually killed Mrs. O'Dell though...would've been nice for her to have just gone missing or something so we could still have him around. Oh, well. Might not matter anyway, if this show ain't coming back...sure as hell hope it does, though.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 9:10 p.m. CST

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 9:17 p.m. CST

    I liked the episode, but...

    by OptimusPrimeTime

    2 things still bother me: (1) When did Foyle have opportunity to bug Veronica's phone? (2) Did he sneak the .mp3 CD into Botando's apartment, and then plant it when Veronica wasn't watching? (He didn't have access.) Chances are, I've missed the answers to both points at some point in the series...the writers are good like that. All the more reason to bring them up in this thread.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 9:35 p.m. CST

    OptimusPrimeTime, although it's ambiguous...

    by DanielKurland

    one of those may be the things Thomas was referring to that had to be cut out. And although this season, albeit maybe a rocky start has been great, and I agree with the ending on top comments, but this isn't the end. We have five more standalone episodes that could easily bring down the quality and feeling of gravity of the show.

  • Feb. 27, 2007, 9:43 p.m. CST

    In retrospect, was it not kind of obvious?...

    by DanielKurland

    The only suspects were the two most obvious ones: Landry, and Mrs. O'Dell, and then Tim, who had been around all season. I still loved how everything played out, but having longer arcs allows you to introduce more characters, and I really hope they'll get to do that.

    Too bad there won't be a central mystery to them, and such a layoff without reruns is probably the last nail in the coffin. Modestly-rated cult shows that disappear from the schedule don't usually come back unless they're on cable. Instead they're going to put on the bimbo talent show. Sad.

    Hot diggity damn

    by David Lazarus Long

    That was some fine, fine television. I totally knew it was Tim from the beginning, but right up until the very end in the classroom I wasn't quite sure where precisely they were going to go. The reveals in this show are just so fantastic. This one was definitely on the level of the Lily tape and the Beaver reveal, maybe not as complex but certainly as rewarding. When she stood and started going off on Tim I literally started shouting, "YEA! YOU FUCKING NAIL HIM VERONICA!" <p> ...Ok, that came out wrong. If only the CW had patience to let Thomas flesh this shit out at his own pace... I mean, he had to develope an entirely new format with the transition to college and still try to make it seem familiar. How many shows have tried and failed the High School/College crossover? But this has potential. Especially now with Keith as Sheriff... Oh, man. The power Veronica would have... And then of course the eventual downfall, where she tries to take on too much and gets in WAAAY over her head... Are there any Fitzpatricks left holding a grudge? But yea. If S4 was done the right way with a major season long arc running underneath a flow of minor arcs, I could see it being fantastic. But no. They'll can it. Because they have ZERO fucking vision and are more concerned with filling their fat wallets than producing intriguing, imaginative television. <p> Did you know?: Every time you watch that demonspawn Pussyfootfuckstupid doll show an orphan gets sold for organs on the black market in China.

    Widtholding info...

    by Darth_Nader

    Once Tim started 'monologuing', I knew it was him. The one piece of it that made me a little mad was the part about Veronica's phone being bugged. First off, when Landry's phone ended up tapped, why wasn't Veronica checking hers? Also, when did he have the chance to do it? The second thing was the part about the phone conversation itself. There was no way for us to know VM didn't tell Timmah about it. She very well could have off screen. If they had just done a quick throwaway of Tim asking her who called, and her saying 'just daddy' we would know he didn't get the info from her.<p>Definitely looking for the return of VM. Still no love for Gilmore Girls Herc? Rory is purdy....

But yeah, as soon as Tim started monologuing in class, I knew he would reveal something. The one thing I'm a bit confused on is the timeline. If we're supposed to believe that Landry's badmouthing him was motivation to set him up for murder, why was Tim already bugging him? He knew about the affair, so was he already covering his angles just in case? I hope the non-arc episodes work - to be honest the episode mysteries tend to be a bit tighter and less holes than the arcs, but I appreciate the ambitiousness of the arcs. We'll see.

    Deputy Sax and the donuts

    by Shivv

    Can't believe no one's mentioned the part where Veronica tells Sax to leave Keith a jelly donut and Sax says something to the effect of "Last time you didn't get one and I almost had a heart attack."

    The terrorists won...

    by Pennsy

    Final overnight rating for Veronica Mars: 1.7, 3 share. <p> Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader: 14.8/22, which means about 26 million people watched this abortion (sorry if that term offends anyone, but there's no other word for it) of a show. Unbelievable.

    Yes, it did say six

    by The Selecter

    It didn't sound right to me either, so I checked the DVR. Who knows, maybe the CW folks have Pussycat Dolls staffing the department?<br><br>The fact that is was Tim wasn't hard to guess; the way he acted in this episode (non-jerk) was out of character, and was as much of a tip-off as everything else. The big reveal was how and why.<br><br>BTW, having Keith back as Sheriff is a bad move. The show loses something when it makes it easier for V have insider access like that, just as when she lost her outsider/pariah status in school.

    Fighting words from Rob Thomas via TV Guide:

    by Pennsy

    "We're very much on the fence for a fourth season. My amateur handicapping of our situation — 60/40 in our favor. We are shooting the finale as a season finale — not as a *series* finale. There will be no alternate. If they do try to get rid of us, we're not going to make it easy for them."

    "If they do try to get rid

    by AnnoyYou

    "If they do try to get rid of us, we're not going to make it easy for them." Wow, as if he cared. Thomas is shameless -- the show has taken such a nosedive in quality this statement is laughable and deeply, deeply cynical. If he really cared about preserving Veronica Mars, he'd make the effort to make it as good as the first season (which was obviously a fluke he can't duplicate).

    This is without doubt one of THE best shows on television right now, in every aspect!! I have nothing but complete love and respect for everyone involved in this show.

    Sheriff Mars

    by _Maltheus_

    I'm guessing he won't run or win when the elections come up. Either that, or Thomas already has a strong indication that the show won't be renewed and making Keith sheriff again would be an obvious endgame. It's not good for the show, but is good for the story as long as it comes at the end.

    If Gilmore Girls was exposed to radiation

    by Phantom Einstein

    and mutated into a shambling freak that was oozing puss and dropping teeth, it would still be better than the episode that aired this week. There was a montage, for chrissake.
