Storyline

Seth is thrown when Alex's ex arrives in town for a visit, and is even more thrown when he finds out who it is: a young woman named Jodie. Meanwhile, Julie has a plan to try and save The Newport Group: a ego-driven magazine called 'Newport Living' which to Sandy and Caleb's surprise, might actually work. Lindsay sticks out when she joins Summer and Marissa for a girls night out at the Bait Shop, and soon falls victim to Marissa's self-destructive lifestyle of drinking. At the same time, Ryan, Seth and Zach contemplate playing it safe on a guys' night in. But nothing ever goes as planned when they end up at the Bait Shop, and Ryan goes for a swim after mistakingly thinking a drunk Lindsey has fallen into the sea in which he blames Marissa for encouraging her to drink.

Girl's night out, guy's night in and Julie Cooper-Nichol magazine.
15 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Seth is thrown when Alex's ex arrives in town for a visit, and is even more thrown when he finds out who it is. Julie has a plan to try and save The Newport Group, which to everyone's surprise, might actually work. Lindsay sticks out when she joins Summer and Marissa for a girls night out; meanwhile, Ryan, Seth and Zach contemplate playing it safe on a guys' night in. But nothing ever goes as planned.

Seth is terrified at the thought of meeting one of Alex's ex boyfriends. He really expects some tuff rocker dude.

The guys (Seth, Ryan and Zach) are becoming friends, acting funny and keeping the irony up with the boyfriend being friends with the ex and stuff like that.
