The Heartbreak (#1.19)
6 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Valentine's day. Marissa tries to get back with Ryan but he just can't do it because he doesn't know if he can trust her. Seth and Summer get together and they also have sex but it really sucks. Turns out Summer was a virgin too. And both Julie and Jimmy get together with their secret admirers.

A pretty awesome episode. Yes, I am not happy that Seth ended up with Summer, to quote her: "ew!". But at least they made it in a pretty hilarious way. Seth having the talk with Sandy was one of the funniest parts.

Another great thing was Luke's crush on Julie. Oh my god it was just too awesome. Hope there will be more. And I hope Jimmy will change his mind about Hailey.
