Storyline

Ryan continues to become suspicious of Oliver when he suddenly transfers to Harbor High and begins making plans of his own with Marissa. But Ryan's attempts to try to expose Oliver of the person that he is, gets met with negative approval from everyone, leading to a familiar situation. Summer shows off her new boyfriend, Danny, to Seth and Anna who correctly think that Summer is just showing off to satisfy her own ego. Meanwhile, Sandy and Jimmy prepare to sign the lease papers to build their own seafood restaurant, the Lighthouse. But Jimmy doesn't know if he's ready for this new business venture.

New beginnings for some, the beginning of the end for others.
9 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Sandy and Jimmy have plans to sign papers for the Lighthouse... but is Jimmy ready? Oliver makes his plans official to Ryan, but Ryan just cannot catch a break from anyone and finds himself in an all too familiar position. Summer has a "big" new boyfriend... for a little while. And Julie gets a job.

Ryan is back to old habits, Oliver is even more of a creep, Summer has a "big boyfriend", Seth wonders if Anna is the female him, and Marissa is just being Marissa.

What in the world is wrong with Seth and Marissa? Marissa said Ryan that she loves him and then she spend all of her time with another guy? How come she's mad at Ryan, she's the guilty one, I think Marissa is really stupid sometimes.

Seth said that she had a crush on Summer since he was like ten! How come when she finally notices him, he chooses to be with another girl?
