Veronica Mars: Your Quick Recap of Every Episode (and the Movie)

As Eleanor Roosevelt — via Logan Echolls’ voicemail message — once reminded us, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Today, however, belongs to the Marshmallows who can get themselves up to speed ahead of Veronica Mars Season 4 premiere.

Hulu’s revival of the teen noir detective drama gets underway on Friday, July 26, which means you don’t have a ton of time before our collective return to Neptune. And since the coming eight-episode run is very much a continuation of the original series — featuring original cast members like Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring and Percy Daggs III — it’s a good idea to brush up on Veronica’s past before we see what’s in her future.

Because we know you don’t have tons of time, we’ve compiled these super-quick recaps for every single episode from the series’ original run (all of which are currently streaming on Hulu), as well as the 2014 movie. Rather than in-depth summations of everything that happened, we’ve instead focused on the notable plot points and big-name (or future big-name) guest stars from each hour.
