It's not a date, it's a group hang. So Seth goes with Lindsay, but looks for Summer. Ryan goes with Alex, but would rather be with Lindsay. And Alex...well, stay tuned. That new CEO has a style all her own.

The New Era (#2.4)
10 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Seth wants a group hang at the concert for which he got tickets for Summer. Ryan asks Lindsay out for him and she says yes even though at first she thought she will go out with Ryan. And Seth gets Alex to go out with Ryan. Those dates are a mess but at the end all works out fine, Ryan and Alex pretty much exchange dates and Marissa gets together with DJ.

Not a bad episode. Hope this new era will go on for a while. Because once again, Alex is way more awesome than Summer. Ryan and Lindsay belong together too, such boring people. I mean, there are people who don't like live music???? When he said it I was shocked, no wonder I dislike the guy, he is crazy.
