A LONG TIME AGO, ON VERONICA MARS:
Wallace got duct taped to the school flagpole by Weevil; Keith inquired about the identity of your daddy; Logan smashed Veronica’s headlights with a crowbar; and Veronica tried to cram three episodes-worth of backstory about her murdered best friend, her missing mom and her social ostracism into forty minutes - in between staking out the Camelot Motel, framing Logan for having a bong on school grounds, colluding with the fire chief to swap out police evidence, and cutting Wallace down from that flagpole. She’s a busy kid.
Also, Duncan… existed. Barely.
