“Eli ‘Weevil” Navarro. Ex-con. Somewhat reformed gangster, and the only man in Neptune who might just be smarter than Veronica Mars.”

Eli ‘Weevil” Navarro’s relationship with Veronica Mars was bumpy but they respected each other. Could it have been something more? Maybe not, but their relationship often goes unobserved. So maybe. From the horse’s mouth:
I love Veronica Mars, but I never got her thing for rich guys. She spent so much time working against the powers that be, but she liked her men preppy. This gernally went uncommented on, except by Weevil.
It makes sense he would would be the one to put her in her place. Veronica’s place in Neptune society after the Mars clan falls out with the 09er crowd is similar to Weevil’s. He was often telling her the hard truth no one else would and vice versa. Over time this forms the mutual respect that is one of the foundations of their friendship. That and the fact that they constantly owed each other favors.
He loves his family.
She always lets him off the hook
Veronica often accused Weevil of committing crimes she was investigating. He often take umbrage, but sometimes he did do it. I don’t know why he would be mad, especially when Veronica never busted him.
He never started a bum fighting ring
All of the flirting
The sexual tension begins with Veronica and Weevil’s first meeting:
While Veronica and Weevil did develop respect over time, the innuendo never stopped. That many years with that much back and forth, I’m just saying maybe something else was going on.
Look at this beautiful SOB
I was really hoping that I could just find a youtube video with a series of clips of Weevil smirking while “Blurred Lines” played*, but alas. Just imagine that’s how this post ends.
*Not that I condone “Blurred Lines”
