Security Guard


Ryan is officially introduced to the bi-religious holiday of 'Chrismukkah', thanks to Seth who has set this up for his parents; the Catholic Kristin and the Jewish Sandy. At the same time, Seth insists he has two Godly forces helping him as he continues to play both Summer and Anna by claiming he has chosen the other. Meanwhile, Marissa slides more into depression and debauchery over her family life problems and gets arrested for shoplifting with Ryan. It gets worse when she gets drunk at Seth's 'Chrismukkah' party and nearly gets arrested for drunk driving while Ryan covers for her, and afterwords gets into a fight with her saying she can't do this to herself anymore. Kirsten does something that could cost her more than just her job over speaking out of her father Caleb's shady business deals. Summer and Anna find out about Seth's playing of them and decide to give him a 'very special gift' to make him choose which one he wants to be with. Written by Anonymous

The Best Chrismukkah Ever (#1.13)
5 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is time of Chrismukkha, a combination holiday designed by Seth. Marissa gets into trouble with shoplifting and then gets drunk which leads to a fight with Ryan. Seth still is with Summer and Anna, but the two make him decide. He wants to be just friends with both but they don't want to. And Randy wins against Caleb with Kirsten's help.

I like how the show is going at first I wasn't sure it will be good, but it is now. And the younger actors all are better now than in the first episodes. Except for Adam Brody who was great from the start.

I am a bit sad that he won't be with Anna, her gift was so special. But I like how they did it.
