Back in Newport, Kristen invites Caleb and Julie over for Thanksgiving dinner where Seth takes the player role of playing both Summer and Anna. But he does not play it well, leading to both of the girls running into each other and learning about Seth's two-timing act. Written by Anonymous

Summer vs Anna (part 2)
9 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It's Thanksgiving time in 'the O.C.' It's time for family reunions, and Ryan gets called home by his family. Is it because of the holiday, or is it for a favor? Marissa decides to go along for the ride, but ends up going down Ryan's bad-memory lane instead. Seth plays the player role, but not very well.

The cutest scenes were the ones with Seth and Summer, not really romantic, but cute... You would never expect them to be the ones to get married! :)) Meanwhile, Marissa gets to know a little bit of Ryan's old life, including Teresa, Ryan's former love interest. Teresa will be playing quite a character in future episodes...
