This episode sure was a nice comeback to The O.C. after a month break. The episode took off right where it had landed. I felt a little "premiere thingy" when I saw the beginning. Kirsten at home making food and things being alright again. I don't know if FOX and Schwarz planned this but it really wiped out the gap in time from the Episode #4.
The things that happened in this episode clearly in my opinion showed that this is a new start. Ryan back at Harbor and Kirsten at home. I got a little bit worried in the beginning after that whole fishing boat event but it flew nicely.
I can't wait to see the next episode.
