The Break-Up.
29 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

When Ryan and Sadie go on a road trip to search for one of Johnny's relatives they end up in Ryan's old neighborhood in Chino, which brings the two closer together. While the two are away Marissa is implicated in Johnny's death and Seth and Summer learn the truth about Julie and Dr. Roberts new secret.

Good thing Ryan and Marissa are off now, but they could have broken up months ago and spare Johnny an early death. It seems to me, Marissa is dragging as many people as she can down with her. Without Ryan she has always been a wreck.

I already miss Kaitlin, she's a more powerful character then Marissa, because, unlike her sister she knows what she wants and she gets it fast. Marissa seems to be the younger, immature one, really. Her naivety is more like stupidity to me.
