It really was sad that he was only in the one chapter. I would have LoVed to have seen more of how he was doing transitioning back into PCH life!

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments I would love him to help veronica out like in the old days, it would be great if they had a common "enemy" or something

I am totally in favor of going back to the storyline where he works for Mars Investigations!

Christy | 98 comments I was glad Weevil was there to help. Mostly because I wanted him in the book. Her dad probably wanted to teach her himself.

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
Plot Point: Instead of asking Keith to help her with shooting practice, Veronica googles how to shoot a gun. She acknowledges that she is both too proud and too scared.


message 10: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments Yeah that would be great and now he wouldn't do stupid things like beating up people :p


message 11: by Neptune Rising (new)

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
Plot Point: Weevil gives Veronica some shooting advice.


message 12: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments Yeah I can see why she didn't want her dad to teach her and of course he would have wanted to


message 13: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments Me too!!! I think he'd be great working for Mars Investigations

Agreed!

i was kinda sad tho because it made me wonder what is going to happen with his wife and little girl!

Plot Point: As a result of Celeste Kane shooting Weevil and a stolen gun being planted on him, Weevil is back on his bike:
"He was back on he bike, roaring through the streets of Neptune with his old gang, believing that if the system was rigged, this was the only way to give himself a fighting chance."

THIS MADE ME SO SAD!!

Discussion Question: Should Weevil stay away from the PCHers? Or is that where he belongs?


message 19: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments I know he'd come so far; I really hope he doesn't go completely back to his old ways


message 20: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments Yes it's sad but it's the Neptune way and we want him fighting for a change so it had to happen


message 21: by Jess (new)

Jess (backofcerealbox) | 5 comments I think that was the most heartbreaking scene from the movie, and it's just as poignant in words in the book.


message 22: by Em (new)

Em (emtifahp) | 37 comments *Side note Could you please make a comment when we are going onto the next chapter discussion? Thanks.

i can totally relate to that... not that i've done it or anything... oh, wait. i have.

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
I wondered the same. Also, how badly does everyone want to see Weevil being a daddy? Wearing a Baby Bjorn or pushing a stroller???

message 26: by Em (new)

Em (emtifahp) | 37 comments I was proud of Veronica for accepting that her dad was right about her needing to "pay a price" for accepting this way of life.


message 27: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments I think he may belong with the PCHers but maybe Rob will find a medium ground, I have faith :)

Mia (aylaeh) Neptune wrote: "Discussion Question: Should Weevil stay away from the PCHers? Or is that where he belongs?"

YES! he should stay far, far away from them!

Being back on the "streets" might help him uncover evidence to prove his innocence?


message 30: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments That's true but he doesn't need to return to a life of crime, he just needs to get the PCHers to trust him to be on the inside

Hi Em! I will post a comment when the next chapter topic is posted!

I wish he'd stay away. I don't know how his wife feels about it, but I want him to stay with his wife and daughter. I want to see tea parties in the next movie.


message 33: by Neptune Rising (new)

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
Good point! I hope he's gathering evidence to help get rid of Sheriff Lamb!

I will now cry if there is not a tea party where Weevil is wearing his leather jacket in the next book/movie. #MoreVeronicaMars

message 36: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments I hope either way we get to "see" more Weevil in the next book


message 37: by Em (new)

Em (emtifahp) | 37 comments I like how Weevil, in many ways, has always been able to see more of the big picture compared to Veronica. He really does talk logical a lot of the time.


message 38: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments He is absolutely a down to earth down to business kind of guy. He was also in love with Lilly though


message 39: by Neptune Rising (new)

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
page 206: And suddenly the thought made her deeply, achingly sad. Because they were both back in ti. Because it looked like neither of them would ever be able to walk away from the past, no matter how hard they tried."

Weevil and Veronica are so alike.....


message 40: by Em (new)

Em (emtifahp) | 37 comments Did this chapter remind anyone else of the scene where Logan went to the shooting range with the Dick Casablancas's?


message 41: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments Yes I always felt they were so similar


message 42: by Emily (new)

Emily Graham | 12 comments I love at the end where Weevil asks if they hurt her.... Just felt so caring in the soft tone he used. I love him being protective of V.


message 43: by Emily (new)

Emily Graham | 12 comments "I hope either way we get to "see" more Weevil in the next book"

AMEN. I agree!


message 44: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments Omgosh now that you say that it definitely reminds me of that


message 45: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments He always has Veronica's back

Yes! Except Logan is a better shot than Veronica. Sigh! Logan is good at everything!


message 47: by Neptune Rising (new)

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
Can we talk about the golden dialogue in this chapter???
Weevil: I saw that fancy car you've been driving in the parking lot, and thought to myself "I gotta see this. Veronica Mars with a gun."

V: Dad wants me to learn.
Weevil: Smart man.

Weevil: Oh you know, I follow you on twitter, @too_nosy_for_her_own_good.


message 48: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments @neptune That was hilarious


message 49: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments Haha very true


message 50: by Neptune Rising (new)

Neptune Rising | 587 comments Mod
That scene still sends chills down my spine when Logan makes the bullseye!
