  • How they can make a public school in NEWPORT BEACH look so ghetto, well, I can't imagine the warzone they would try to make the actual ghetto schools in Southern California look like.

    Some pretty interesting new developments. Although Marissa's first day at the notoriously bad Newport Union hasn't been pleasent for her, she is making the best out of the situation by trying to make new friends. It's so sad that her mother, although has often been portrayed as the manipulative snake of the show, isn't doing as well. Seeing her getting kicked out and crying by herself in a motel room, for all the wrong she has done, the show has done an effective job of making you sympathize with her. The other storylines, such as Taylor Townsend's affair with the new Dean and Kirsten's new stalker trying to capitalize on her money, have been quite interesting themselves. Though what this episode lacks that the others have been in full nourishment of has been humour.
