  • Veronica’s in jail for helping Josh escape jail - though later she seems to get away with helping Josh get away with kidnapping, obtaining his inheritance early, and fleeing the country.
  • Even though Josh didn’t actually kill his dad - turns out his dad killed his dad, for life insurance purposes.
  • And, it turns out the Dean was killed by Lucky In A Wig, for framing Professor Landry purposes!
  • And, Professor Landry kills Mindy O’Dell! For writing both of them off the show purposes?
  • And, Sheriff Lamb is killed by Steve Batando! So Deputy Sacks kills Steve! And that’s the season finale of Veronica Mars - wait, there are still several episodes to go?
  • Keith is sheriff again, anyway.
  • At least some people are having fun: Mac, Bronson, Parker and Logan do a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt, and find a little romance on the way.
  • And Veronica and Piz get together! Pizvonica! A pairing as sizzling as lukewarm oatmeal.

Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate Veronica Mars season 3 episodes 14, 15 and 16: Papa's Un-American Mars Bars, and delve into such mysteries as which Gilmore Girl Wallace is, why both Marses are worse when Keith is officially doing sheriff duties, and how this show's compulsion to make cultural references even infiltrates the last words of a dying man.

Content note: Veronica Mars contains heavy themes, and this episode includes storylines concerning murder, suicide, violence, racism and Islamophobia.
