On the odd chance anyone but me or a Z watches this - did you see that coming? I totally did not see this coming.
From reading reaction elsewhere, I understand CBS was airing some sort of teaser ad that hinted in this direction (I never actually saw it, or I saw it and it made no impact.) What a blindside to end the season.
If there's an improvement to be made, they really should've ended the episode two minutes earlier, with everyone reacting to the ending, rather than try and go with the happy drinking family final scene.
I thought Veronica Mars was a flop. It took in about $3.5 million with a $6 million budget. But how much money does it really have to recoup when Kickstarter provided 5.7 million in advance? Seems like it either made or lost a marginal amount.
