The Rainy Day Women (#2.14)
14 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is a nasty rainy day and all women (and men tbh too) deal with their problems. Sandy is away with Rebecca but after the accident they have is willing to get back to Kirsten no matter what. Lindsay goes back after paternity test. Marissa tells Julie who her girlfriend is. And Summer changes her mind of going to Tuscan with Zach and is back with Seth.

I must say a lot of things in the episode bothered me, but I still like it. For once I don't get why Caleb is shamed for wanting a paternity test. It is not like she was living with him all her life and he should be obliged to see her as a daughter no matter what. Then yes, I could see it could hurt.

Julie was great in this episode. The whole thing with Kirsten was annoying as I don't think her treatment of Sandy was right.

Now, the greatest thing that happened in this episode for most OC fans: Seth and Summer are back together. I must say it bothers me less than the idea of it did in the first season. I feel they made her less annoying and stupid (maybe in the first season lots of people really wanted him with Anna instead). But the way it went kind of sucked. The whole thing of her going from the airport was cheesy and I felt bad for Zach until his reaction which was absolutely senseless and just made it look as if the writers were too lazy. And what the hell was Seth doing going up on the roof? But yes, the Spiderman scene was cute.
