Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Kady Cole ...


Caleb spends the night in jail until Sandy bails him out, and all of Orange Country finds out about his troubles via a front page newspaper spread. Seth realizes that he really does make everything about him, as Summer previously suggested, so he decides that he needs to become selfless, for the greater good of man, and just in case Summer might want him back. He decides to get tickets to a Walkmen show at The Bait Shop, but they're sold out. So he accepts a manual labor job at from the co-manager, a punk rock princess by the name of Alex, of cleaning toilets to be rewarded tickets so that he can give them to Summer and Zack to prove his selflessness to her. Summer realizes that Zack is the perfect guy, though he may not be perfect for her, and agrees to arrange a lunch where Zack can meet her Dad, hoping it will go better than when Seth met him last year. Ryan gets assigned a lab partner in his AP Physics class, a new girl named Lindsey, though he's already met her. Earlier that day ... Written by Manda Clark

The New Kids on the Block (#2.3)
8 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Caleb assigns Julie as the new CEO which makes Kirsten mad, but he makes her responsible for the money in the firm so she has the real power. Seth tries to get Summer back and even gets a job but this doesn't work and he sees Zach meeting her dad and actually get along with him. And Ryan meets a new girl, Lindsay, who first thinks that he is dumb.

A nice episode, with us seeing new characters being brought on the show. I hope there will be more of Seth's new boss, she seems pretty cool. Ryan meeting Lindsay was pretty funny although I am not sure yet if I like her. And I am kind of looking forward to see more conflict between Julie and Kirsten.
