The Return of the Nana (#2.21)
15 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Nana calls and tells that she wants to get married. Sandy, Ryan and Seth go on the trip to Miami to her wedding. But it looks like the guy had bad intentions as when Sandy confronts him he goes away. Seth helps a girl at a competition in a Spring Break which leads to him being beaten up by her boyfriend and Summer who sees it on TV kisses Zach. Trey high on cocaine attacks Marissa trying to have sex with her so she hits him and runs away.

So sorry for Nana her wedding didn't go through! Would be great to see it. But there was lots of fun stuff in Miami. Seth acting all old, the competition where he was just too cute. Poor girl, she seems like to fun to live among those bible nutsos. And Summer, can't really feel bad for her as she had no reason to be mad at Seth and go on timeout in the first place.

Really hope what happened with Marissa won't ruin things for Trey. I really like that character.

And I am glad Carter is leaving as the whole story with Kirsten and him was just very boring. The episodes were saved by all the other story lines that were good.
