Episode Summary

EDIT
Livin' on the Fault Line (1)
AIRED:
A geological survey team arrives to Los Angeles in order to place an underwater seismometer in the Malibu fault. Stephanie agrees to be their safety officer, because she is in love with the team leader Riley Ferguson. Riley is an expert oceanographer and free-diver. The evening before the diving, Stephanie invites Riley over to her and C.J.'s apartment to discuss the details of the operation. But as their love begins to show, C.J. comes home and when she leaves her room to get a flashlight wearing just a negligee, Riley is definitely distracted. Later things doesn't turn out for the better when Caroline, Stephanie's younger sister, appears at the door. Caroline has left her husband Frank because he cheated on her and now she has come to California to start a new life. Meanwhile, Mitch isn't too happy when Hobie tells him that he will skip junior lifeguards this summer and work on his music instead. When Mitch tries to reason with him, Hobie tells him that he doesn't want to follow in his father's footsteps. Later when Hobie, Connor and J.B. have taken some pictures of themselves, they accidentally drop them from the pier. When Hobie goes down to get them, he meets a homeless man named Garrick. Hobie is scared when he sees Garrick, but it turns out that Garrick is harmless. Meanwhile, Jackie has sold Jackie's Summer Place and is moving back to Pittsburgh. Summer has already left California and she will attend Penn State in the fall. But before Jackie leaves for Pittsburgh, she will spend one more night in Los Angeles on some cliffs with her trailer. A new exchange-lifeguard from Australia named Logan Fowler is bothering Matt and during a rescue, Logan decides to rescue a woman instead of a man, and that really upsets Matt. Matt doesn't trust Logan and thinks that he wants to be more of a hero then a potential lifeguard. Early the next morning, Stephanie, Riley and his two friends Max and Tom head out to plant the seismometer in the Malibu fault. But disaster strikes when the big earthquake comes. Riley is trapped underwater and Stephanie, Max and Tom falls overboard when the boat turns upside down. Meanwhile, Matt is driving on the beach in a lifeguard truck gets stuck in the sand when the sand suddenly opens. C.J. and Caroline are trapped in the apartment as it collapses, Jackie is caught in her trailer which is hanging precariously over the edge of a cliff, and Hobie is trapped under the rubble of a partially collapsed garage. A very heavy boat engine is about to fall down on him. Newmie and Barnett are at headquarters when it collapses.moreless

  • Our little Hobie is growing up!

    Ok so Hobie is going though puberty which means he has completely stopped listening to his dad. He had decided that he doesnt want to be in Jr. lifeguards and he doesnt want to follow his dads foot steps, instead he is going to sing! Which he does very well actually! You get to see a music video in this episode ( Hobies ) and you also get a earthquake ( very scary ), it ends up where Hobie is trapped under some stuff in the garage and this big boat engine is about to fall on him! What will happen?...moreless
