|In the script for the episode she died, the last 6 pages were missing, and no onw knew what was going to happen. There were 2 different endings, and Josh Schwartz didn't know which he wanted to pick. In one of them, Marissa died, in the other it was just any old season ending with an excellent plot twist. Mischa didn't even know that she was leaving until they were on the set for that episode and he told her. Josh Schwartz said that he killed Mischa because he didn't know how to bring her back from what he made her in season 3. Personally, I think he could have brought her back, and I think that someone else should have died instead of Marissa.|
Is this true? Because then it makes me hate Schwartz and Marissa's death even more. Everyone I knew kept saying 'well Mischa wanted to leave didn't she?' I figured at least that's the only reason why they decided to kill her off. But now I know it wasn't about Mischa, it was about Josh's pick-between-two-endings, it makes me hate the fact that Marissa died more than I ever did. So thanks for posting this, I would never have known otherwise.
