Question: I just wanted to thank you for getting me addicted to Veronica Mars. I didn't want to like it, but it sucked me in. I was wondering whether we will be disappointed by the new mystery Veronica is trying to solve this season.

Answer: It's always a thrill to hear from a new convert. Welcome to Mars, my friend. And no, you will most definitely not be disappointed by this season's central whodunit, but here's a tip: The implications are even bigger than the incident itself  provided you, like me, stop to think about all said implications. Even Jay (yeah, we're still at that place) was impressed that a dimwit like me picked up on the enigma within the mystery. "That's exactly right," he said. "You're the first person who's thought of that. That's the big thing." Of course, this'll all make much more sense after you watch the damn thing on Sept. 28.
