The Heavy Lifting (#3.15)
23 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Johnny doesn't survive the fall and it is time for funeral. Everyone has to deal with it and also Johnny's cousin comes who apparently had something with Volchek. Kaitlin goes back to Santa Barbara with the guy who came looking for her and stolen money at first. Marissa and Ryan fight and so do Seth and Summer over pot.

Oh my god, thy are so into making the couples fight that they can't even come up with good reasons....Seth and Summer had no reason to fight at all. Because he didn't inform her he smoked weed, really? At least she reacted to the fact of it normally and not in the reefer madness way. And what was the fight Marissa and Ryan had about. No clue....

But Seth and his dad mixing up underwear was a bit fun. The funeral was pretty original. And it looks like some Volchek related drama is coming, but not a very good episode....
