Death and Valentines day...
29 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Kaitlin prepares herself to head back to school. Ryan has doubts about his relationship with Marissa after helping out Sadie. Kirsten and Julie make plans for a Valentine's Day party.

I can't believe that they are already packing Johnny's room. Moving on to quickly? Also, his cousin, Sadie didn't seem very unhappy and specially not at all sad that she was at "Johnny and I were really close" her cousin's funeral.

Marissa is a looser, no matter how hard Kaitlin and Ryan blame themselves, it was all Marissa's fault, again! She is always doing the wrong thing. I think it's for the best that she will be joining Johnny in a few episodes!
