  • Fantastic!

    Although I've never been a fan of court battles stuff, the meeting to allow Marissa Cooper back into Harbor built up so much intensity that it eventually led to an overload of excitement towards the end. So much drama that the episode kept your attention throughout the entire thrill ride, and some new doors open now that Marissa is back in Harbor. The Johnny storyline was sort of dragging itself out for a while now, but it concluded--if it concluded at all--with this episode. Taylor Townsend played a great part in the episode, as well as Sandy. Though what really made this episode such a highly emotional episode is that rather than separate two to four storylines simultaneously like the show has always done, it brings everything together for one huge build up. Just a brilliant episode!
