14 March 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Julie and Caleb walk down the aisle, as Ryan and Theresa face a difficult decision regarding their pregnancy. Marissa moves into Caleb and Julie's new castle on the cliff, and Seth struggles to find himself when things around him seem to fall apart. Life in The O.C. comes full circle from one year before.

This is not one of my favorite episodes. It feels like they just wanted to make a bad impression for the season finale, so people will want to see the next season.

How could Theresa do that? Is she retarded or something? Maybe she is Jamie Lynn Spears' model. Beiing a mother when one still a teenager. That's so not romantic... If you want company, make friends, not a baby!
