The L.A. (#1.22)
7 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Summer and Marissa run into a guy from "The Valley" and he invites them to the party in LA. Ryan also sees Luke with Julie and tells him to break up with her fast. At the party they meet Hailey working as a stripper and Ryan of course tells it to the Cohens. They get kicked out from the party but bring her back. Luke breaks up with Julie but Marissa still finds out.

Well I never watched The Valley so parts about the people from the show got lost on me. Was fun to see Paris Hilton though and saying that she is in grad school.

Ryan really is one of my least favorite characters. And he sure is annoying in this episode. Why is everything his business? He is just an annoying party pooper who ruins everyone's fun. Including ours by breaking Luke and Julie apart. And him ratting Hailey out was despicable. She is an adult and he is a nobody. Too bad they will make it on the show as if he is some hero saving everyone.

Best parts once again were Luke and Julie. Him hiding outside trying to talk to her was too funny. And I am happy Marissa found out
