... newport high (possible spoilers)
31 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just a little summary of some of the things that happen during the episode ..... most of the things happen to Marissa (!)

Marissa begins school at Newport High. Marissa moves in with Summer because the debt collectors come to Julies to reclaim Caleb's debts. Charlotte propositions Kirsten with a business proposal. One of the Newport high girls learns that Marissa was kicked out for shooting someone. Marissa makes three friends at N/H. Marissa goes to the school dance only to be followed by Ryan later to check up that she isn't cheating on him. Summer catches Taylor and Dean Hess kissing during the 'end of summer' dance.

.... I really enjoyed this episode ... having watched the first series but missed the second series due to working on a Sunday when it was on in the uk ... (gutted!!) .... i was really looking forward to this series and so far it has failed to disappoint ... highly recommended viewing!!
