"Normal. That's the watchword."
After discovering the answers to questions that plagued her life for the better part of two years, Veronica is determined to put the turmoil behind her and have a "normal" life. She gives up her burgeoning dead-end career as a P.I. in favor of a part-time waitressing job. She ditches 09er-vs-non-09er-lightning-rod Logan and begins dating helps-clear-off-the-tables Duncan. She throughly embraces her friendship with Wallace, even up to the point of standing outside a bathroom doorway, listening to him pee. Awwww. And ewww!
How long is this normalcy going to last? Is she really going to give up the detective biz? Because let's face it, Veronica Mars, part-time waitress, just doesn't sound nearly as cool as Veronica Mars, badass action hero. If she isn't the ostracized, angry loner of yesteryear, then who is she?
If you have to ask, then you haven't been watching the show too closely, have you?
Her hair might have gotten a little longer, her necklaces might have changed, and her social status might have climbed up a few notches, but at the core she is still Veronica Mars. She might be a little less angry, and a little bit happier, but nevertheless, she is still as fierce, strong, vulnerable, brilliant, sarcastic, and mercilessly, scandalously hot as ever.
Veronica no longer works for her dad, but she can't help being who she is. As soon as she discovers that Wallace failed a drug test, her breaking-and-entering, file-cabinet-memorizing, whatever-it-takes-to-find-the-truth instincts immediately take over. No, she no longer takes cash, but she isn't about to sit idly by when her best friend is in trouble.
Nor is she going to accept the fact that people she cares about are trying to push her out of their lives. During her junior year, Meg and Weevil were two of the few people she could count on. When they begin pushing her away, instead of just shutting down and letting go, she tries to rebuild their friendships. Weevil accepts Veronica's offer of friendship; Meg does not.
By some weird twist of fate, the cruelest—and ultimately the kindest—thing Meg ever did for Veronica was to leave Veronica behind at the gas station. That bus accident ended the lives of many people. It also ended any hope that Veronica had of staying out of the detective biz. In a town filled with secrets, lies, and corruption, that bus accident was not just an "accident." How far is Veronica willing to go to find the answers? What ethical lines will she cross to do the right thing? How many lies will she weave to uncover the truth? How much longer can this bio get considering the fact that this is just the season premiere?
