After Lindsay moves away to Chicago with her mother, Ryan is heartbroken and Caleb's confused. Seth, Summer, and Marissa invite Ryan to the local mall to get his mind off things. But things take another turn when they get stranded in the mall after hours. Meanwhile, Caleb tags along to vent his frustration when Sandy tries to make amends with Kirsten by searching for her wedding ring or even a grand gesture that will take her back to when Sandy first proposed. Alex begins to learn that Marissa might not be as into her as she thought. Also, Kirsten and Julie call an editor for their new magazine, Newport Living, but at the same time Julie's Riverside past catches up to her in the form of a former boyfriend with an incriminating video tape of her.

Did You Know?


At the end of the episode when Marissa asks Ryan "Who are you?" and Ryan replies with a French fry in his mouth, "Whoever you want me to be." This is a reference to the Pilot episode when Ryan is standing outside the Cohen's house and smoking a cigarette and they exchanged the same words. See more »


In the first season Jimmy Cooper says that he lives in a house full of vegetarians. Yet in "The Mallpisode" Marissa is seen eating a cheeseburger at the diner. See more »

The Mallpisode (#2.15)
14 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ryan is all depressed after Lindsay leaving and Seth takes him to go with him, Marissa and Summer to a mall. They end up getting locked up there and stay over night. Seth and Summer have a fight of course. And Marissa lies to Alex about staying with her mother and she finds it out. Julie has a man coming from her past and bribes her regarding an old sec video.

I liked the setting of the episode. Them being locked in a mall was pretty fun! Summer putting on the hockey mask and after the dolls being in the tent with valley video was pretty fun.

I hope Alex and Marissa don't break up for now. I like them as a couple, and Ryan can be a goody two shoes with somebody else as boring as him or Lindsay.

And oh yes, I am looking forward to Julie's story. Julie is awesome, bring me more!
