“I love Lilly. Not just because she died, not just because other people loved her, but because of what we actually know about her. I’m not apologizing for the bad things she did and I know there were a lot, but I also see her as a dynamic person, always pushing others to break out of the mold and enjoy life. She had a lot of good qualities, she was just trying to find her way. Yes, Lilly was immature. She was 16 when died. But I believe, just like Veronica, that she could have grown into a really incredible person and she deserved that chance.”
“I think it goes without saying that we blame Aaron for the murder, statutory rape and child abuse. He was a despicable human being. Lilly might be a good friend to Veronica, but she was not awesome for sleeping with Aaron. She knew what she was doing was wrong - she knew the difference. She was not blameless just because she was a minor. She was mature enough to know from right and wrong. She might be a fun character, but she was not awesome. I don’t hate her AT ALL in fact I love her, just like other characters who had done wrong things in their lives. If fans aren’t allowed to point out her mistakes, then don’t point other characters’ mistakes too.”
“I hate the fact that fans are so quick to assume that Lilly wasn’t a good person just because she had flaws. Veronica has flaws and betrays people she cares about—that doesn’t mean she’s bad person. We only get a sense of who Lilly was because we only see her in flashbacks, but we do know how important she was to the people who cared about her, and how much they loved her. I think that means she was as awesome as Veronica is now, and just as admirable, and the fact we as an audience don’t get to know her as much as Veronica is another aspect of Aaron’s horrible crime. Don’t write her off as another Madison Sinclair! Remember, Lilly was awesome!”
Trigger Warning: “I wouldn’t wish rape on a character so that I could like her. Even if she was raped, that wouldn’t change her personality. Her purpose was to die in order to show the character’s reactions to her death. I don’t think Rob Thomas really cared about us liking Lilly. In fact, I think she is more interesting because she is unlikable. We want to like Lilly because she is dead, but she wasn’t the best person. That conflict is more interesting and noir than a likable faultless character.”

“I don’t like the idea of Logan’s girlfriend getting murdered. I mean, come on, what’s the likelihood that something like that would happen twice to one person? Plus, that’s the way the series started (Lilly’s death), and while it was great then, this just seems a little like a forced reboot.”
Trigger Warning: “I wish that instead of finding a tape proving that Aaron and Lilly were having an affair, the storyline could have been that Aaron taped himself raping Lilly. That way the story & outcome could have been the same, while leaving Lilly with a better reputation. It would have been nice to feel for the girl whose death was the focus of the season, but, while I of course don’t think she deserved to die, I can’t like her either. She cheated on her boyfriend with his dad!”
“I know Rob doesn’t want to introduce the Lilly Kane mythology to the new audience so it won’t confused them. But I feel that it kinda rob the reason to new fans to watch the series. The reason WHY Veronica Mars existed was because the murder of Lilly Kane. I think it would be much intriguing to introduce the old story, even for a brief time, to the new audience instead introducing everyone to the NEW mythology. Who killed Logan’s girlfriend…again? It doesn’t have the same kick to it.”
“Watching the flashback where Lianne threw a surprise birthday party at Jake Kane’s house made me realize that she desperately wanted to be a Kane, she didn’t care whether her daughter dated her possible half-brother. She was so lucky that Celeste didn’t throw her ass out of her house.”
“I never understood why everyone loved Lilly. The girl didn’t deserve to die, but this is the girl who had an affair with her boyfriend’s father and she was planning to blackmail him just because it was fun. She knew Logan was abused but didn’t do anything nor care. She dated Weevil just to pissed off her mom. She was looking for attention because she was jealous that her parents liked Duncan more. If she didn’t die, I couldn’t imagine what she would do. Maybe she would throw Veronica under the bus someday. She held so many secrets just because she could and she loved that she held the power over people. She was a mean girl and people still adored her. She was so desperate for attention and she didn’t care who she hurt in the process.”
Hmmm… I have no knowledge for that. The confession was made by anon.
The only interview I could find about Veronica Mars was when Diablo Cody asked Amanda Seyfried about “Who killed Lilly Kane?” and she didn’t remember. Which is understandable, because it happened a decade ago. Click HERE for the interview.
