    Just watched this last night....wow, what an awesome show! Can't wait for season 2.

    I almost though Veronica was going to shoot Aaron when she had him at gun point...

    After y'alls talking up this show I finally tivo'd it and had a Veronica Mars marathon yesterday. The kid and I really liked it, but I thought it could've had a better season finale. They shoulda really left us with a cliffhanger, maybe not show us who the real killer was in the video and let us wait it out. Definite SP pass in my house!

    Considering that the renewal of VM was very much up in the air when the episode was shot (I heard it was the lowest rated program to get renewed), I'm very glad that they did wrap things up.

    I too watched the show this summer as "New to me". It's awesome and I'm glad you all recommended it. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming new episodes. Seems like they may have gained a bigger audience this summer.

    Ok, I revise my previous "Wallace" guess.

    Big Bird.

    I'm going with Big Bird. Who wouldn't "hoped it was you" to Big Bird.

    Maybe it's Ed McMahon with that check from Publisher's Clearing House.

    It looks like she's looking pretty much straight ahead, to me.

    (now that I'm caught up with the rest of you)

    Remember that in an early episode, Veronica confronted Jake Kane directly and asked him about the photos. Shortly after that, there was a scene in which Jake went into Clarence's office and yelled "What did you do?" This indicates to me that it was Celeste who went to Clarence and asked him to take the photos. Yes, it doesn't prove it 100%, as Clarence is clearly the kind of person to "take initiative" as it were, but it's a strong hint.

    So, Celeste wanted Lianne out of the picture. Why? I think it was as simple as that Celeste found out that Lianne and Jake were together, and she just wanted Lianne out of town to stop boinking her husband. I don't think getting Lianne freaked would serve any purpose in the murder cover-up, and if Keith knew about the pictures, that would only serve to increase his focus on the Kanes, not divert it away.

    Oh, and at the door? Sydney Bristow. They're really cousins, and Veronica was hoping it was her so that they could swap spy tips. :)

    Probably kind of weird to bring up this thread after so much time has passed...

    But my wife rented the first disc of this show on DVD to check it out, hearing good things about it...and I started watching with her too...and next thing you know, we bought the entire season because we couldn't wait for Blockbuster to send the other discs.

    Wow, what a great show, and a great season...I absolutely loved it. We finished watching the last four episodes last night, and we ignored everything else on...24, Surface season finale, my Phoenix Suns playing....just because we couldn't look away.

    The final episodes blew us away...we loved the storyline with Logan and VM hooking up...it just seemed right. The finale was awesome...

    I'm amazed at how well everything was planned out...i can't think of any clue or story that contradicted another one. The last episode...the dropping of the tray of food, the red light Lilly ran, etc...it was just so cleverly done.

    Sadly, we now have to wait for Season 2 to begin repeats I guess...and it sucks, because we really can't wait.

    Great characters, great stories, and Kristen Bell is adorable...love the show!

    Mike

    It's never too late to start watching (or talking about) one of TV's best shows. Glad you're on board! Season two has been, on balance, even better than season one. If you're adept with a computer, you can probably figure out a way to get started on it sooner than waiting for reruns. The season premiere alone will knock you off your seat.

    No argument here! :D

    It seems a lot of people have discovered season one of VM on DVD recently and I can only hope that the ratings will soon show some improvement as a result. Season three is still not a guarantee and if the numbers don't improve dramatically after the move to CW, there will definitely be no season four.

    I couldn't agree more about your comments. Those last two episodes had me on the edge of my seat in a way that I can't remember any other TV show ever doing before, and I'm including 24.

    I am computer saavy, and was able to find a copy of it today from work...it's sitting on my home computer now :)

    I can't wait, my wife can't wait...we're stoked.

    Better than Season 1??? Wow...

    Yeah, it's funny...sure, we watched the final four episodes last night, so it was fresh in our heads...but both my wife and I dreamt about the show, and everytime we woke up, it was like still in our heads.

    It's just amazing how it affected us...
