At the opening day of the new school year, Ryan doesn't feel like he fits in at his new school of Harbor High, and Luke doesn't make the situation any better when he and his jock friends continue to bully and harass both him and Seth, who does like being at school any more than Ryan. Meanwhile, Sandy accepts a case at his new job, a case that will test his relationship with Kirsten and her father Caleb. Anna and Seth hatch a plan to make Seth feel better with his current situation. Also, Ryan and Luke confront Marissa and force her to choose one of them. Written by Anonymous

And then there was the first day of school...
8 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Back to school for the O.C. kids. No one really wants to be there, except for the gossips. Ryan doesn't feel like he fits in at his new school, and Luke doesn't make the situation any better. Sandy accepts a case at his new job, a case that will test his relationship with Kirsten and her father. Anna and Seth hatch a plan to get Summer Seth's attention, while Marissa chooses her man.

The adorable Samaire Armstrong is back in the show, her hair is kinda pissing me off, but on the other hand, "Seth's women" sounds very amusing even to his father. Summer is playing hard to get, because that's what she always does when it comes to Seth, but she feels he is that guy you imagine, when people tell you that "opposites attract" or "there's someone in this world for you".

In this episode, magic happens between Marissa and Ryan. They finally take their relationship to the next level.
