  • Best episode in a while.

    Something new and original for once. This separation between Marissa and Ryan, starting to like it! No more dragged out melodrama and emo scenes at the beach during night, dumb fighting, etc. The fight between Marissa and Summer was also pretty entertaining; them exchanging blows at the breakfast table was amusing to watch. And I'm not sure but it feels like The O.C. rehired the same storyboard that made season one such a hilarity these past couple episodes. It's witty and funny again! Although the multitude of different stories was always a problem in season three, it wasn't so much in this episode. The whole conflict with Matt was pretty sympathizing; seeing his home get wrecked due to a potential conspiracy was just so sad to see. And the time that Kirsten and Seth have been bonding together was really really touching. Is it a pipedream to ask that the quality remains like this for the remainder of the season?
