"Kanes and Abel's" is the seventeenth episode of the first season of Veronica Mars.

Plot Edit


Veronica hides Amelia DeLongpre in a hotel.

Veronica finds Abel Koontz's daughter, Amelia DeLongpre, and tries to secure evidence that Jake Kane paid Abel to confess before Clarence Wiedman gets to her.

She also assists class valedictorian candidate, Sabrina Fuller, who is being harassed, apparently by her ex-boyfriend, in an effort to distract her from studying and wreck her grades.

Vinnie Van Lowe makes proposes an unsavory business arrangement to Keith. Logan discovers Veronica's extensive files on everyone related to Lilly's Lilly Kane Murder case and tells her about witnessing Duncan having a violent episode a week before he broke up with Veronica.

Arc significance Edit

  • Amelia DeLongpre has money, thinking that it's from a stock owned by Abel Koontz, when it's actually money Jake Kane paid him to confess.
  • Clarence Wiedman tracks Amelia down before she can give Veronica the papers showing Jake Kane paid Abel off and tells Amelia that her father is dying (something which Veronica did not tell her). Amelia leaves with money that Clarence gives her.
  • Keith tells Veronica that Jake Kane called Clarence Wiedman before he reported the murder and that as he was talking to Jake and Celeste right after the body was found, the dryer buzzed. Inside the dryer was a soccer uniform (presumably Duncan's, implicating him as Lilly's murderer)

Quotes and trivia Edit

Keith: You want me to find a call girl for your husband?
Woman: Yes. He likes blondes.
Keith: Look, I don't know if you were looking for "pimp" in the phone book and just stopped at "P.I."…

[ Veronica answers a lewd call for a classmate, using caller ID and the Internet to check it out. ]
Veronica: Hello? Yes, this is Miss Sabrina. Bad boy? Well… Nestor Greely of Encinitas. Twenty grand on credit cards, two divorces, and a repo'd Sebring. You have been a bad boy! Miss Sabrina commands you: put your pants back on and get a job!

Vinnie: [ to Veronica ] I, uh, hope you're not thinking of dying that hair because when you come work for me, you'll find that straying husbands are most likely to chase skinny blondes. No, I'm kidding, of course. They'll chase anything. But seriously, don't dye that hair.

Trivia Edit

Goofs Edit

  • When Veronica and Sabrina Fuller are talking in her house, the laptops have the dialog between Sabrina and her mother on them.
  • The screen of the tracking device that Veronica placed in "Kanes and Abel's" and "Hot Dogs" is the same in both episodes, despite being different vehicles.
