The Secrets and Lies (#3.19)
24 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Julie and Dr. Roberts are back from the cruise, engaged of course. But the family time doesn't work out too well as Marissa and Summer are fighting because of Marissa seeing Volchek. Marissa also convinces Sadie to stay for Ryan. And she does cocaine. Sandy fires Matt for the best of the hospital but he threatens to have a case against his partner, who then comes and beats up Matt.

I find it incredibly annoying ho everyone tells Marissa what to do with her life and whom to date. I actually prefer her like this, we have enough boring characters like Ryan. And I see no real reason to hate Volchek. Oh no he wears "bad guy" clothes and parties, what a horrible thing to do! I am curious to see how it goes with Matt. I am sure him and Sandy will kick some ass.
