The History of Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls' Epic Relationship in . I can't help but be like, "OMG CHOOSE LOGAN WHY WOULD YOU. LoVe is the romantic relationship between Logan Echolls and Veronica Mars. Throughout the first half of season one, Logan and Veronica are shown to virtually dislike each other however as the series progress they fall deeply in Love with each other. The Logan and Veronica article.
Her very first meeting with him involves her helping him out, by cutting him down from the flagpole where some bullies had duct taped him.
He sits with her anyway, not because he feels like he owes her for the help, but because he likes her as a person. As Wallace spends more time at the school, he starts to befriend other students, and get quite popular as a result of being a star on the basketball team.
This creates problems in his relationship with Veronica, as they both try to navigate the jealousy, resentment, and time conflicts that come from vastly different social statures. This comes to a head several times, especially when his mother gets in trouble at her job because of something Veronica had him do, without telling him how dangerous it could be.
He calls her out several times when she starts neglecting her friendship with him, blowing him off to work on her cases and just using him for the assistance he offers. The depiction of this as a constant issue between two platonic partners is quite refreshing. She gets Weevil and Mac out of trouble when they need it, and they both help her out whenever they can.

Keith and Mac are still important, but mostly because of their own storylines, and they do a lot less interacting with Veronica. Still reeling from the abandonment of her own mother, Veronica empathized with Logan's pain, and the two reconciled most of their differences.
Towards the end of the third season of the series, Veronica successfully completes her California state examination to receive her official license as a detective in her own right. Veronica scored a 95 on her private investigator test. Some years laterVeronica is shown to have moved on from her old life as a detective and has a job offer from a prestigious law firm in New York.
