  • Season 2, Episode 13.

    Madison: Ohh smoothies what flavor did you get? Lesbian Lemon? Queer Kiwi? No Boysenberries?

    Ashley: No, your favorite: Bi-polar banana split!

    (Madison rolls her eyes.)

    LMAO! Excellent episode! I really liked it! It was so great, especially with the prom picture at the Carlin house. Glen wants to join the army! I really liked all the drama. Stupid Sean decides to fight with people who decide to shoot everyone on Prom Night. I really liked that. Ashley was lookin' hot at the prom! The drama with Spencer, Ashley, and Aidan before the shooting rocked! I really loved the shooting. The scene with the phone at the end was so mysterious and was the perfect ending, even though it was obvious that Clay was shot.moreless
  • On Prom Night, Chelsea and Clay try to enjoy their last night of freedom; Aidan reveals that Spencer told him to stay away from Ashley; and a drive-by shooting proves fatal for several King High students.moreless

    This episode was amazing. It was definitely the series' best episode yet. I am anxious to know who dies and what happens in Season Three. The phone that rang at the end was the Carlins' so one of the children was either shot or killed. Or it could have just been the police telling Paula and Arthur what happened. This episode was really pulse-pounding. South Of Nowhere is definitely going to be a hit. I can imagine it making up to six or seven seasons. This is definitely South Of Nowhere at its best. It is a shame that season three is the last, because this season alone could get it to be the next Simpsons.moreless
  • Spencer is such a b***. Great Cliffhanger though!!

    In this episode, Spencer gets extremley jealous of Ashley & Aiden. She is so selfish. Why would she tell Aiden to not see Ashley! They are friends. Juts because of there chemistry. I think Spencer should stop giving her heartfelt speech, on how she lost everything. This episode is also when Aiden declares his love for Ashley. Spencer explodes metaphorically speaking. Uh But seriously then the whole shootng occurs. It sucks that someone life is going to be taken. I thought it was going to be Aiden. So when Ashley didn't know who to choose. Spencer will be left heartbroken and still be over the grief of Aiden's death. Stupid Clay had to die!moreless

  • Your Far From Paradise in Nowhere

    One of the best season finalé's I have seen before. Trouble In Paradise shows, excitment, happiness, and shocks. With Ashley having to chose which person is her true love and who was shot in the shooting, Trouble In Paradise makes you excited for season three. Now if only season three came sooner.
