The Homecoming (#1.11)
5 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Thanksgiving time and Cohen's are planning a dinner. They also hook up Jimmy and Sandy's colleague. Ryan goes to visit his brother in jail and needs to do him a favor. Marissa goes with him and finds out about his past. It gets awkward when Julie and Caleb join them and also when Seth has both Anna and Summer at the dinner and tries to be with them both but fails.

A pretty fun episode with many great moments. It was pretty fun to watch Seth dealing with his new role of a player and being so bad at it, wonder how it will go now for him. Was also interesting to see Ryan's old life. Feel bad for the girl he left behind. This is one thing I don't like about the show, it seems the guys end up leaving the girls that are more fitting them and end up with the one they have nothing in common with.
