The SnO.C. (#2.5)
10 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is time for Winter dance but the relationships from last episode don't seem to work out. So the four of them go together just as friends. This ends up though with Marissa bringing DJ to the dance, Ryan going over to Lindsay, Zach kicking Seth in the face and going away with Summer and Alex making out with Seth more. And it turns out that Caleb has another daughter, who apparently is Lindsay!

Well I must say I now feel Alex is way too cool even for Seth. There is obviously nothing going to happen here, she is not as perfect for him as Anna was but is a fun character.

The whole thing with Lindsay and Ryan was kind of annoying, but the final scene kind of made up for her existence, was very fun!
