Did You Know?


Jimmy Cooper (Tate Donovan) is talking to Hailey Nichol (Amanda Righetti). She asks him how it is living in Hawaii, and he says it's great, and that she "wouldn't believe the North Shore." Hailey replies, "So I've heard." This is a reference to the series "North Shore" (2004), in which Amanda Righetti starred. See more »


Before Ryan confronts Trey at his apartment about what happened between him and Marissa, Trey is tucking away a gun under a pillow. Under that pillow is also a thin packet of some sort and next to the pillow is a section of the newspaper laying flat on the couch. They begin to scuffle and Trey reaches for the gun, pushing away the pillow to get it. At this point that small packet is no longer there and the newspaper is placed perfectly standing up against the back of the couch. See more »

The Dearly Beloved (#2.24)
16 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Caleb's funeral and we see many faces that have left the town before. Jimmy and Julie get closer. Kirsten gets an intervention and ends up in a rehab. Marissa tells Summer what happened with her and Trey, she tells it to Seth and Seth tells to Ryan. Ryan goes and confronts him, they have a fight and Marissa shoots Trey.

Wow, a very dramatic finale. The whole Kirsten being an alcoholic thing is pretty ridiculous, but oh well. Good acting at least.

The ending was just insane though. I hope Trey isn't dead. I can't stand Ryan and Marissa. Ryan is just a lucky nobody loser who tried to be tough. If it wasn't for him Trey would have never hit him and that dumb girl of his wouldn't get to shoot him. A great way to end a season though to have the crowd waiting.
