Velma

Velma Season 1 Episode 1 is a story about former best friends Velma and Daphne being tense in the school showers. When Velma later goes to open her locker, her classmate Brenda falls out of it. She is not only dead but her brain has been removed from her head.

Velma becomes the prime suspect in Brenda's murder for a variety of reasons, including her strangeness and unlikability. The cops (Daphne's adoptive parents Linda and Donna) will give Velma 24 hours if they need to solve the mystery. She hasn't solved mysteries since her mother Diya disappeared two years ago.

Velma begins working as a waitress at her restaurant Spooners on the father's recommendation, at the same time as where Daphne announces to everyone that Velma is the primary suspect in the murder case.

Velma stumbles over to Fred. He confesses to her that he's attempting to be the person his father expects him to be. He can't seem to stop crying since Brenda passed away.

Velma tries to comfort him by revealing her own problems. Two years ago, she solved the "mystery" of where her Christmas presents were hidden, but then felt bad about ruining Christmas. Diya went to the store to buy her a second present. That night, the cops discovered her van abandoned and empty except for her glasses and a wrapped present for Velma. She now experiences terrible hallucinations every time she solves a mystery.

Fred understands Brenda's story, but he continues to flee, refusing to be seen with her. Norville (he's not yet going by Shaggy) then finds Velma to tell her that he knows how to discover who killed Brenda.

Brenda went to Spooners to find out about the school's secrets. She took a photograph of something in the bathroom. Now, his camera is missing. Norville believes that what she saw is the reason why someone killed her.

Velma learns that Sophie has a new camera. But when she glances around, she discovers that the camera isn't Norville's. It's just good food that's the key to Spooners' success.

Velma's father Aman tries to calm her down from another hallucination. She left them because she solved a mystery, he claims. She accepted them eventually, and she throws away the wrapped present she never opened.

Velma goes to school the next day with a fresh appearance, but people still think she killed Brenda until Fred intervenes. Daphne tells Velma she may have her boyfriend, but he never releases him anyway. In fact, Fred is so self-conscious that he bans everyone out of the Spooners' bathroom when he needs it.

Velma is led to Fred's house to discover more about her new suspect. She sneaks into his place, but her hallucinations return. This time, though, her mother turns into the creature that has been torturing her.

Velma believes she deserves to die. No one loves her anyway. However, Norville takes the time to express himself via the phone. She thinks this is a joke and laughs, which results in temporary discolorations of her visions. His repeated requests make the hallucinations go away completely.

Velma discovers Norville's camera in Fred's room, which contains images of Fred in the Spooners' bathroom. Suddenly, Fred emerges from his own bathroom. Velma has discovered his secret, so he'll do to her what he did to Brenda.

Officers Linda and Donna show up and shoot Fred in the leg before he can take anything out. Fred claims he just wanted to pay her to keep quiet, but they arrest him, believing they have found the culprit.

Velma is returned by Norville. She admits she was hallucinated once more because she knows her mother did not leave her. Her disappearance was caused by her mystery solving.

Norville notices cockroaches swarming one of the Dinkley's garbage cans and opens it to discover Krista's dead body–minus a brain.

This HBO Max original is the first to focus exclusively on Velma in the 50-year-old original Scooby-Doo series; the turtleneck-rocking geek is a popular figure among others.

What is surprising about Mindy Kaling and Charlie Grandy's decision to modify the cartoon at all. Little is recognizable from the original series and its subsequent adaptations; Scooby isn't even in it at all. Velma, then, isn't exactly poised to work as an adaptation and will probably not please dedicated Scooby-Doo fans.

The teen mystery series has had a rough start. The meta humor is hit-or-miss, and there's a tendency to over-explain each character's relevance. However, there is still a lot of scope for a unique blend of horror, comedy, and intrigue here.

Fred does not have the analytical ability to execute serial killings, according to the sources. And, at least, they're trying to frame Velma.
