Mini Coop in action.
26 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Kaitlin starts going out with Johnny with the sole motive of making Marissa jealous. Seth starts getting nostalgic as he prepares for his Brown interview.

Unlike what Kaitlin believes, she is more interesting then her sister. Compared to her and... Johnny, Marissa and Ryan seems like an old married couple. Actually, an old married couple with issues. They seem perfect, but they're not, Marissa is like the center of the universe when it comes to attracting trouble and stuff like that. Also, she is so annoyed with everything Kaitlin does wrong, she forgets the stuff she did herself, like hooking up with another girl, or drinking much, or attempting suicide, not to mention befriending a mentally unstable guy (Oliver).

Seth is totally lost, he smokes pot, he misses his Brown interview and for the first time he keeps everything to himself, just him and his problems.
