I’m keeping the Spoiler Alert warning up so that I can continue to discuss Veronica Mars.
I just want to note that Neptune is not a place for healthy full-parent situations:
- Veronica: abandoned by mother (again)
- Weevil: Being raised by his grandmother, apparently. I don’t recall if we’ve heard anything about his parents
- Wallace: Single mom
- Duncan: Father under arrest, likely to serve time
- Logan: Mother dead (I’ll add a “presumed” for you conspiracy theorists). Father arrested and likely to serve time (although not, I should note, for the murder of Lilly Kane; they should have him cold on assault, arson, B&E, and statuatory rape — California age of consent is 18, a mark I don’t think Lilly had reached — but all we got from him in regards to Lilly last night was motive, and that doesn’t constitute proof beyond a reasonable doubt).
Of course, you can add to that a season of people being raised by the wrong parents, abandoned by parents they believe to be dead, and so forth.
