Eli "Weevil" Navarro
"It's time for Plan B."
Weevil, former head of the PCH biker gang, only stays in school because of a promise he made to his grandmother. 'Tis a pity he didn't pay more attention in English class; he could have learned a thing or two worth knowing and avoided some painful consequences. Perusal of Shakespeare may have taught him lessons about trust (it took a rescue from juvie for him to trust Veronica Mars), love (Lilly Kane broke his heart), and fate (going half-cocked after Logan Echolls for Lilly's murder cost him his best friend, Felix). But let's talk about power. And betrayal.
After Felix's death, Weevil got complacent about his control of the bikers. Choosing to focus on first blaming Logan and then — once Logan was cleared in his eyes — working with him, Weevil assumed there was only one rat in the midst of the PCHers. Weevil and Logan teamed up, and their investigation pointed the blame from one biker to another, but Weevil never questioned testimony from the man who replaced Felix as his right-hand man — Thumper.
After Veronica helped this unlikely pair gather evidence that Thumper himself was the one selling drugs for the Fitzpatricks, Weevil confidently walked right into his betrayal by Thumper and the other bikers. Weevil was cast out of the PCHers, his bike possibly driven into the ocean by Hector. To add insult to injury, Weevil couldn't even avenge himself upon Thumper, given the backstabber's evidence of Weevil's beatdown of David "Curly" Moran.
That is, until Weevil's frustration reached a boiling point. Now that Logan has officially been exonerated of Felix's murder, and with the police apparently not even trying to find the truth, Weevil turns to Veronica for help. Weevil's memory of Felix waxing poetic about a Norman Rockwell-esque life — which Weevil realizes must have been motivated by his secret relationship with Molly Fitzpatrick — prompts Weevil to use Molly as his patsy. Through the help of a Truck-Bug, he and Veronica gather enough evidence to point the finger of blame for Felix's death at the Fitzpatricks and Thumper. Not satisfied at Lamb's inaction and unmoved by Veronica's entreaties, Weevil goes to Plan B. He sets up Thumper to look like he's stealing drug money from the Fitzpatricks. Did he know that would result in Thumper's hard-core death by implosion? Are his actions redeemable? Will he be brought low by two children who witnessed him mugging Thumper? Will he regain control of the PCHers? So many questions. So little season left.
