During planning for Harbor High's senior prom, Seth tries to convince Summer to accompany him. But she is still mad at him over the Anna Stern incident at Brown and refuses to listen to any explanation.

Just Another Prom
28 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Harbor School's Senior Prom brings out the best and the worst in everyone. Taylor hits a high at prom, while Summer falls flat with her surprising prom date. Seth and Anna come up with a prom plan to win Summer back. Meanwhile, Marissa convinces Volchok to go to the prom and Ryan brings an unexpected old flame. When one of the girls is elected prom queen, it truly becomes a night to remember. Later, when Taylor's prom funds are missing, Ryan returns to his old ways and prom night turns brutal. ---------- -------------- ---------------------- --------------- ---------- -------------------- ---------------- ------------------ ---------------------- -------------- --------- ------------- ---------------- ERW
