Who Killed Felix?

Status: Did Logan Do It?

It was a night to remember. Veronica Mars and her father Keith fought for their lives. Aaron Echolls was unmasked as the killer of Lilly Kane. Jake Kane swore vengeance on Aaron and all his issue and Weevil was out for blood, believing that Logan Echolls was Lilly's murderer.

Oblivious to events that would so profoundly affect his life, Logan teetered drunkenly on the edge of the Coronado Bridge, the site of his mother's suicide. When Weevil showed up with his PCH biker gang, Logan was cocky and uncaring, spoiling for the fight. Outnumbered, but fearless, he got in the first blow, knocking Weevil unconscious with a well-aimed kick.

Like any good lieutenant, Felix gathered the troops and set upon the suicidal 09er, dragging him off the edge and giving him a sound beating. But what happened next?

When Logan regained consciousness, there was a bloody knife in his hand. Felix's body lay beyond him, dark blood staining his chest. Logan threw the knife in the water and ran.

At a preliminary hearing, Logan's lawyers did their job, and the case against him was dropped for lack of evidence, the PCH bikers no match for the high-priced advocates. Logan was free, but the case locked the town in a war of attrition between the haves and the have-nots. In war, there are casualties. Was Felix the first?

Clues for Who Killed Felix?

  • 2.01 "Normal Is the Watchword"
  • When Logan reached Veronica, he was bruised and bloody and had broken ribs consistent with a beating.
  • Felix and five other bikers, in helmets, beat Logan. Each of those five will have evidence of what happened that night. Who are they? Where are they?
  • Felix has always been quick to defend the biker boss against any threat.
  • Logan does carry a knife, as was seen in 1.20 "M.A.D." The knife in Logan's hand does not appear to be the knife he had in that episode.
  • The passing motorist who found Logan and Felix's body did not wait for the sheriff's department. Who is he? Will he come forward? If he does testify that he found Logan with a knife in his hand, will Logan go down?
  • The case was dropped against Logan for lack of evidence at the preliminary hearing stage. It can be resurrected.
  • Jake Kane swore to destroy Aaron's family. If Logan was framed, was Jake involved?
  • "Like father, like son." Logan's father is a murderer. Duncan's father swore vengeance.
  • 2.02 "Driver Ed"
  • With Logan still under suspicion of Felix's murder, he is more likely to be a suspect again.
  • If the bus crash was murder, one of those who were on the bus, or who should have been on the bus, may have been the target. Cervando Perez, another PCH biker, was on the bus and the second biker to die over the course of a few months.
  • 2.03 "Cheatty Cheatty Bang Bang"
  • David "Curly" Moran may have been a biker. He was pictured with a motorcycle and he was last seen at the Road Hog, a biker bar up the Pacific Coast Highway. He is certainly dead. If he is another dead biker, is that a connection with Felix's death or coincidence?
  • An earring was found outside the Road Hog. The earring looks like the one Weevil was wearing when he gave Veronica a ride and they came upon the bus crash.
  • Moran was beaten to death and marked with the name "Veronica Mars."
  • Moran was a mechanic at Symbolic Motor Car Company and Logan has access to many Symbolic-worthy cars. They may know each other, although Logan denies it.
  • 2.04 "Green-Eyed Monster"
  • Someone called Weevil, on September 24th, with information about Moran's alleged involvement in the bus crash. Weevil judged the information unlikely to be true. The call was made from Logan's house.
  • Logan claims that September 24th was the night of his Life's Short party. Many people were present at the Life's Short party including 09ers, the bikers, and the sheriff and his deputies.
  • The flier Logan showed Veronica to verify what he was saying does not, for it dates the party as September 20th. There are three possibilities. Logan is innocently mistaking the date. Logan is deliberately seeking to mislead Veronica. Somebody behind scenes messed up. Pay your money, take your choice.
  • Logan claims not to know Moran or of his association with his father, whose birthday, coincidentally or not, is September 24th.
  • 2.06 "Rat Saw God"
  • A man has come forward to say that he is the one who made the anonymous call from the bridge. If Logan's account to Veronica in 2.01 "Normal Is the Watchword" is accurate, this is not the same man who spoke to Logan when he regained consciousness.
  • If Logan's account to Veronica in 2.01 "Normal Is the Watchword" is accurate, the man who spoke to Logan when he regained consciousness said that he called an ambulance but made no reference to calling the sheriff's department.
  • It is unclear as to if the man who came forward is a second witness, one who made an anonymous call to the sheriff's department?
  • The man alleges that Logan was raving over Felix's body, bloody knife in hand.
  • The man alleges that Logan threatened to kill him, using his father's money to do so.
  • On June 27th, Logan gave testimony, saying that he couldn't remember a thing about the events on the bridge.
  • If the witness's story holds, Cliff advises Logan that he will go to trial.
  • It may only be hearsay, but Veronica's evidence is relevant to the case against Logan, specifically his admission that he had a bloody knife that he disposed of. Such evidence would be damning.
  • The PCH bikers have no doubt that Logan killed Felix and intend to take action against him.
  • Clarence Wiedman is still in place as the Head of Security for Kane Software, to all appearances unfettered by charges as to his actions the previous year.
  • 2.07 "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner"
  • Logan asks Veronica for help. He says the witness is lying about the events on the bridge and he needs to know why.
  • Veronica gathers information about the witness. He is Dr. Tom Griffith, a noted plastic surgeon.
  • On seeing a picture of the witness, Logan tells Veronica that it is not the man who was on the bridge.
  • Logan admits that he lied when he said he couldn't remember. He did it because he was free and clear if the witness was not found. Veronica was unaware of this.
  • Veronica's initial assessment of Dr. Griffith is that he is a good man. This is based on his treatment of her as a potential patient for plastic surgery, surgery he refused to perform as she does not need it.
  • Veronica's initial assessment is revised when it appears that Dr. Griffith may have deliberately avoided further contact with her, and instead leaves his office.
  • Veronica follows Dr. Griffith to Liberty Cigars & Pipes. She is suspicious when he fails to reappear after half an hour. She goes into the shop, pretending to be a customer. She sees Dr. Griffith leave with a paper bag in his hand.
  • Keith tells Veronica that Liberty Cigars & Pipes on Ocean Avenue was notorious for dealing drugs, and that he tried to close it down when he was sheriff.
  • As a doctor, Griffith would have easy access to drugs.
  • Drugs have come up a few times in the show. There's Corny with his little bag of herbs and his permanently dazed expression. There are the 09ers, who pick stuff up on trips to Tijuana. There's Veronica, who once claimed to know a man. More recently, there are the Fighting Fitzpatricks, the meth-head lunatics with a bone to pick with Cervando Perez. There is also Stuart Fuller, who may be linked to the Boatloads of Fun Corporation.
  • 2.08 "Ahoy, Mateys!"
  • Tom Griffith was disciplined for inappropriate off-site practice when he stitched up Danny Boyd, a member of the Fighting Fitzpatricks, after a bar fight. To all appearances, Griffith is a friend to the Fitzpatricks, and attempts to gain information about that relationship are not welcome.
  • An 09er has ordered drugs from a member of the PCH bike club. He assumes Weevil is privy to the deal and approaches him. Weevil denies selling cocaine and checks the 09er for a wire. The 09er cannot identify the specific biker.
  • Logan has an unloaded gun in the glove compartment of his car.
  • Logan pulls his gun on Liam Fitzpatrick to rescue Veronica from the River Stix.
  • Logan is unaware of anything he has done to make him a target of the Fitzpatricks. This would be prior to the incident in the River Stix. Logan's actions there have no doubt angered the Fitzpatricks.
  • Veronica concludes that the Fitzpatricks have provided their puppet, Tom Griffith, to help the PCH bikers, who do have a grudge against Logan. She assumes it is because the bikers are working with the Fitzpatricks. Weevil denies that the bikers are in league with the Fitzpatricks.
  • Weevil gathers the bikers to confirm his authority as leader. All the bikers deny having any dealings with the Fitzpatricks and deny selling drugs.
  • Thumper tells Weevil what happened on the Coronado Bridge. The bikers lied to the police. They were not all there when Felix was stabbed. They said they were to strengthen the case against Logan.
  • The only bikers on the bridge at the time Felix was stabbed were Hector and Bootsy. Thumper repeats the story he was told: Felix was reaching over Logan's prone body into his pockets, searching for the keys to the Xterra, when Logan pulled a knife and stabbed him. Hector and Bootsy ran because a truck was bearing down on the scene.
  • Logan is kidnapped. He is held by two men in ski masks. He sees the men call and take their orders from someone on the phone, a person who stays on the line to listen to what Logan says. The men subject Logan to a game of Russian Roulette to force him to tell the truth about what happened on the bridge. Terrified, Logan insists that he doesn't remember. Logan sees them stop after speaking to the person on the phone and one of the men returns the phone to his pocket.
  • Logan is taken to an isolated location to be dumped. As the two men carry him out of the van they are using, Logan picks the pocket of the man with the phone and takes it.
  • Once alone, Logan uses redial. Weevil answers and asks if they are done. Logan swears vengeance.
  • Weevil's search for the truth about what is going on in his own gang may be diverted by his battle with Logan.
  • 2.09 "My Mother, the Fiend"
  • Weevil was responsible for Logan's kidnapping.
  • Weevil does not deny setting fire to Logan's home.
  • Weevil is now satisfied that Logan did not kill Felix. He tells Logan so. He also says that they now have something in common: they both need to find out who killed Felix.
  • Weevil needs to shore up his leadership of the bikers by punishing Logan for taping him to the flagpole, a circumstance Logan appears to understand and accept.
  • Hector is unimpressed with Weevil's treatment of Logan, believing Logan should be dead for what he did.
  • 2.10 "One Angry Veronica"
  • Thumper seeks to intimidate Veronica into finding two 09ers guilty of assaulting a Mexican girl.
  • 2.11 "Donut Run"
  • Hector is dealing drugs. However, he claims that he is not being supplied by the Fitzpatricks. If this is true, then the theory that the Fitzpatricks supplied a false witness against Logan as a favor to a biker dealing drugs for them is weakened, particularly as the Fitzpatricks are notoriously protective of the drug market.
  • Hector is being supplied by Sean Friedrich who denies any association with the Fitzpatricks.
  • Felix's brother was Weevil's predecessor as leader of the PCH bike gang. His efforts to deal drugs at the high school ended when he disappeared, popularly believed to have been been killed by the Fitzpatricks. His body has never been found.
  • Felix was dating Molly Fitzpatrick before he died and was planning on having a tattoo of her.
  • 2.12 "Rashard & Wallace Go To White Castle"
  • Weevil questions Molly Fitzpatrick. She confirms that she and Felix were romantically involved. She states that if the Fitzpatricks had known, they would have killed them both.
  • Molly met Felix at St. Mary's Catholic church, a place where both the Fitzpatricks and the bikers worship. Her uncle Patrick Fitzpatrick is the priest there and in a position to observe their meeting.
  • Weevil believes that whichever of the bikers is involved with the Fitzpatricks, the church is the perfect place for them to meet/interact. He asks Veronica to bug the confessional.
  • Veronica places a video camera without sound in the confessional.
  • Video from the confessional shows Liam Fitzpatrick leave something for Thumper in a hymnal in the confessional, which Thumper then collects.
  • Weevil challenges Thumper who admits that he and the gang have been dealing drugs through the Fitzpatricks.
  • Weevil is ousted as the gang's leader when it is revealed that he has been working with "the enemy" who killed Felix — Logan.
  • Weevil accuses Thumper of killing Felix. Thumper does not deny it but tells Weevil that if he makes the accusation public, Thumper will forward a video he has on his cell of Weevil beating up Curly Moran to Sheriff Lamb, who is investigating Moran's murder.
  • 2.13 "Ain't No Magic Mountain High Enough"
  • Tom Griffith has a daughter at Neptune High who is seemingly unaware that her father has stepped forward as a witness against Logan.
  • Logan is courting Tom Griffith's daughter, Hannah, and has ensured that Dr. Griffith's is aware of this.
  • 2.14 "Versatile Toppings"
  • Dr. Griffith has been separated from his wife for one year. Hannah reports that they used to argue about money.
  • Logan visited Hannah at her father's house. Dr. Griffith confronted Logan as Logan left the bathroom and asked him to leave Hannah alone. Logan refused unless Dr. Griffith rethought his evidence.
  • Dr. Griffith did not tell Hannah that he had stepped forward as a witness against Logan until Logan refused to end his relationship with Hannah.
  • Hannah intended to end her relationship with Logan in the belief that Logan had used her. Logan tells her that her father is a liar, spent his money on coke and is in deep with Fitzpatricks. He asks Hannah to search the house and keep an open mind.
  • Hannah checks the phone and notes recent calls include the Fitzpatricks and the River Stix.
  • Hannah checks the bathroom and find a bag of white powder hidden in a box of band-aids in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom.
  • Hannah tells Logan that he was right about her father. They continue and make public their relationship.
  • Veronica ascertains that a young Latino, Arturo, is responsible for the Pizza Boy Muggings. Arturo devised the plan to impress and thereby join the PCH bike gang who are now "back in charge."
  • 2.15 "The Quick and the Wed"
  • Logan's trial is in sixty days.
  • The District Attorney is offering Logan a plea bargain: four years for involuntary manslaughter, out in two with good behavior. Logan declines, against the advice of his lawyer.
  • Dr. Griffith's evidence is that he saw three bikers, one of them bleeding to death, and a knife in Logan's hand.
  • Dr. Griffith's evidence contradicts the original evidence given by the bikers when they claimed that they had all seen the stabbing. This is likely to devalue any fresh evidence they proffer.
  • Cliff's advice to Logan is based largely upon the evidence of Tom Griffith, and in particular on his evidence that at the time of the stabbing, Logan was not in peril, which scuppers a claim of self-defense.
  • The broadcast of a Tinseltown Diaries piece on Aaron also featured Logan in a negative light and would have been seen by the potential jurors, who may be predisposed to convict a "smug rich boy."
  • Cliff states that no one in Neptune, from which the jury will come, likes Logan, a fact underlined when Arturo spat on him.
  • Without explicitly confirming that he is a cocaine addict or that he is in league with the Fitzpatricks, Tom Griffith agrees to make his evidence go away if Logan stays away from Hannah. Logan appears to reluctantly agree, despite the appearance of developing feelings for the girl who defends him and who has probably slept with him.
  • Without Griffith's evidence, the case against Logan is much weaker.
  • 2.16 "The Rapes of Graff"
  • Tom Griffith has dropped his testimony against Logan.
  • The case against Logan has collapsed again.
  • Cliff's briefcase is stolen for reasons unknown. The contents included the files on the case against Logan and a key to a storage locker that contains "everything else." However it also included files on cases of a drunken assault, lewd conduct, a fraud, and a divorce, any one of which may have been of more interest to the instigator of the theft.
  • In relation to the Logan Echolls murder case files, Cliff describes one of the keys that was stolen as being the one to "their storage locker." Is the "they" the Echolls? What is in the storage locker and why would anyone want to access it?
  • 2.17 "Plan B"
  • Weevil remembers that Felix was making plans for the future, intending to become a truck driver. He mentioned getting married, settling down, and cranking out a couple shorties.
  • Weevil tells Veronica that Thumper killed Felix. He wants her help to get proof or else he is going to deal with Thumper himself.
  • Veronica and Logan find Luis, the truck driver on the bridge who stopped and spoke to Logan when he regained consciousness
  • Veronica puts a bug in a toy truck. Weevil gives Molly the truck, which she takes back to the River Styx.
  • Liam Fitzpatrick tells Molly that she should be glad Felix is dead because she's just the dumb blonde piece o' tail he shot his mouth off about to all his buddies. Molly says it is not true.
  • Liam Fitzpatrick says that if Molly's father hadn't been in jail, he would have killed Felix himself.
  • Lamb refuses to act on the recorded conversation because it was illegally obtained and, in any event, it did not amount to a confession.
  • Weevil acts on his threat and takes matters into his own hands. He sets Thumper up so that it appears to the Fitzpatricks that Thumper attempted to steal their drug money.
  • Luis, having initially refused to come forward due to fear of reprisals by the PCHers, is persuaded to do so by his wife after Veronica visits her. He testifies that he saw one biker stab another biker and then put the knife in Logan's hand while he lay unconscious. He did not see the biker's face, but did see the bike he drove away on. The bike he describes — red with a black spider on the side — is immediately recognized by Lamb as belonging to Thumper.
  • Prior to being gagged and left bound in the toilet of the soon-to-be demolished Shark Field stadium, Thumper said he had something on Liam.
  • Thumper kept the dirt on Weevil on his cell phone. It is not known what happened to Thumper's cell or whether that was location of the dirt he had on Liam as well.
  • 2.22 "Not Pictured"
  • Weevil knows that Thumper was crushed when the Shark Field stadium was demolished by explosives.
  • Weevil saw the paddle in Thumper's locker when he planted the carnival money there. He recognized that it was engraved with license plate numbers and believes it to be some form of insurance policy. He wants to recover it for the leverage it affords against the Fitzpatricks.
  • Liam expects the PCH bikers to work harder to sell drugs in the school and create demand. He suggests they throw a rave on the beach and sell to students who need to stay awake and need to study for finals.
  • Weevil and Veronica track down the owners of the license plates from the list kept by Thumper. It comprises lawyers on speed, coked up pro athletes, and celebrities kids' rolling on E at the least.
  • Weevil tells Liam that the Fitzpatricks' association with the PCHers is over or else the list of his customers as shown on the paddle will be made public. Weevil also confirms that he has copies and that should Weevil disappear, the list will also be made public. Liam is forced to acquiesce.
  • Weevil is arrested and charged with the murder of Thumper.
  • 2.21 "Happy Go Lucky"
  • Thumper's body has been recovered from the rubble of Shark Stadium and identified.
  • The two boys who saw Weevil mug Thumper come forward and identify him to Lamb.
