The Oversimplification of Logan/Veronica: A Rant (AKA HAVE YOU WATCHED YOUR OWN SHOW!?)
by Redg Camarse
A new VM video was just released and I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS I CAN’T DEAL WITH THIS (THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THE VIDEO)
go away this has spoilers
First, we find out that Piz/Veronica is still a thing in the beginning of the movie. This doesn’t really surprise me since it’d be really weird for Piz to attend Neptune’s High School Reunion if V and him aren’t dating. HOWEVER, I REFUSE TO BELIEVE/ACCEPT THAT THEY’VE BEEN DATING EVER SINCE COLLEGE because that’s just so NOT Veronica. They probably got back together and have been dating for 3-5 years but a DECADE long relationship????? NOPE. No. That’s not how it happened in my head.
Secondly, WHY DOES LOGAN GET ACCUSSED OF MURDER AGAIN???? Can’t we have another crime like… I don’t know smuggling drugs or prostitution rings… or Logan being this big shot journalist who’s life is in danger for being so awesome. WHY MUST THEY WRITE LOGAN AS A BAD GUY?
This isn’t really such a big issue for me (lol) but I just wish they’d pull Veronica back from being a lawyer to the PI world again with another case.
“Logan’s pull is too much for her… always.”
Can we backtrack to the last few episodes of season 3 when Piz caught the shared look between Logan/Veronica after Logan beat up Gory Sorokin HE KNEW HE WOULD ALWAYS BE SECOND BEST TO VERONICA. At that moment, he knew. He will never have Veronica fully. (EVEN ROB THOMAS SAID THIS, IN SOME INTERVIEW I AM SURE OF IT) And the fact that he’s still with a person whom he knows doesn’t love him a hundred percent MAKES HIM WEAK. Puta, weak!!!!!
(Puta is a curse word meaning prostitute lol sorry, I have to curse in Tagalog, it’s more satisfying that way!)
Percy (Wallace) being Team Piz is okay because he’s the best friend and the best friend always roots for the nice guys.
SORRY VERNAC CHANGE BUT WOW, CHRIS LOWELL BUTI NAMAN ALAM MO NA SALOT KA SA MUNDO NG MGA LOGAN/VERONICA SHIPPERS
Wait, I do recognize that Piz is such a nice guy and he’s cute AND ALL THAT STUFF but Logan’s nice too! He’s just intense! HAVE PEOPLE FORGOTTEN THAT LOGAN WENT THROUGH A VERY BAD CHILDHOOD? Some might say it’s a childhood worse than Veronica because he’s an abused kid who’s got a psycho murderer for a father and an indifferent drunk for a mom who killed herself. He grew up under the eyes of the papparazzi. It’s like a million times worse than what happened to Veronica. Sure, she got raped and almost murdered but at least SHE’S GOT THIS ONE PERSON WHO WILL NEVER LEAVE HER SIDE AKA HER DAD. LOGAN DID NOT HAVE A DAD. OR A MOM. OR A FAMILY. He had no one. He only had Duncan (escaped with his daughter), Lilly (murdered by dad) and Veronica (left Neptune to be a hotshot lawyer dating this Piz guy)
HE’S BEEN THROUGH ABSOLUTE HELL OKAY BUT STILL HE’S TRYING *TRYING* TO BE THIS NICE GUY FOR VERONICA. He just showed it the wrong way like beating up guys and revenge and all that shit. He just wants to protect Veronica. Wala na kasi siyang alam na ibang way how to express that kasi HE NEVER EXPERIENCED IT. 😥
I hate you a bit Rob (even if you did create the most amazing show of all time) for oversimplifying Logan and Logan/Veronica as ‘unbridled passion’. LoVe is so much more than that. They went through so much together like, oh I don’t know, just small stuff like THE DEATH OF LILLY KANE, and VERONICA GETTING RAPED, and LOGAN’S MOTHER COMMITTING SUICIDE, and AARON AND CASSIDY BEING PSYCHO, and MERCER RAPING GIRLS you know… just normal day to day stuff.
And Kristen Bell, I love you to bits but PLEASE DO NOT ACT AS IF VERONICA MARS IS A PERFECT CHARACTER. Veronica let down a lot of people especially Logan. You also have commitment and trust issues (leaving Logan alone in the boat S1, not answering Logan’s phone call, tracking Logan through GPS) and, believe it or not, that had a negative effect in your relationship with Logan. Both of you were at fault with what happened in your relationship. I know Logan did a very bad thing (sleeping with the devil, aka Madison Sinclair) but you also did several not-so-super-bad things. Veronica isn’t a saint, KBell. Don’t act as if she is. 😥 DON’T PUT ALL THE BLAME ON LOGAN.
And Logan/Veronica does not just share ‘sexual chemistry’ IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THAT OK KRISTEN BELL STOP OVERSIMPLIFYING THINGS THEY ARE NOT THAT SIMPLE. THEY ARE EPIC. SPANNING YEARS AND CONTINENTS. RUINED LIVES. BLOOD SHED. (come on, ruined lives… blood shed? you think a relationship should be that hard?) NO ONE WRITES SONGS ABOUT THE ONES THAT COME EASY.
Bottomline is… yeah Piz is a good guy. BUT VERONICA ISN’T A GOOD GIRL. She’s selfish, bitchy, impulsive and rash. Piz will never have the wit and the energy to match Veronica. SHE DESERVES SOMEONE WHO’S BEEN THROUGH THE SAME THINGS SO THAT THEY COULD HELP EACH OTHER GROW. I wish they’d write a character like that. Oh wait, they already did. IT’S LOGAN MOTHERFUCKING LESTER ECHOLLS.
Logan is so much more than just a bad guy. Just like Veronica is so much more than just a vindictive, revengeful little bitch. To ignore their different layers is to deny the THING THAT MAKES THE SHOW SO AWESOME.
Watch your own show, writers. WATCH. YOUR. OWN. DAMN. SHOW.
I love the show and love Piz and Veronica and Logan and Rob Thomas and all the other writers but I hate the way you’re demonizing Logan/Veronica and making it look like the crazy shippers pairing. Also, WHERE THE FUCK IS DUNCAN AND LILLY KANE because Veronica and Logan would not be VERONICA and LOGAN (separately) without these two.
