  • marissa gets kicked out of harbour high school and ryan doesn't want to leave it like that!Summer and seth want to kick taylor's ass,because she took over the social chair.Kirsten tells Sandy,that she is not planning on coming home and he is very sad.

    I found this episode good, it had emotional and a little boring moments( the whole Jimmy-money-problem)! The most exciting moment of the episode,was for me, when marissa is asked to leave the kick-off carnival and ryan punches mr. hess into the face. Marissa starts to cry and ryan is wondering how mr. hess will react and for my taste, he over-reacted! Ryan is so shocked and is still realising what he just done. After he's finished, ryan walks towards marissa and both walk "the walk of shame", while the whole school is watching. The acapella-version of "california" by Phantom Planet in the backround fits very well and underlines what just happened in the scene! It was very touching!!!
