Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Its graduation day and nothing could be more perfect; Seth and Summer are back together & Marissa and Ryan aren't together but are tight friends. The core four is getting ready for graduation, and Marissa receives some news from her father. He's asking her to accompany him on a boating trip (which is a job). This involves Marissa sailing away to Greece for a year. The core four decide its best for Marissa, and Julie thinks so too. Meanwhile, Taylor announces to the group of her acceptance into a college in France and it pains her to say goodbye to them, whereas they couldn't be more happier to be rid of her. Ryan's mother, Dawn, also arrives for the graduation ceremony to see him off. Kaitlin arrives as a surprise for grad night, and tells her mom that she was expelled from her school and she will keep her company (so she'll be living with Julie forever). When the graduation ceremony finishes, they have a go-away party for Marissa and a celebration for graduation. Volchok is around ... Written by Justine

Omg!I still can't believe they killed Marissa off(i was crying for days!), the show will never be the same and I don't really like the idea of Katlin taking her place. I have to say I am relieved it wasn't Seth who was killed off (I heard someone was but didn't know who) because then there would be no comedy, however during the third season he has been less funny and more grumpy...and the drugs- what was that all about, so not the Seth we love! I think in the 4th season it would be really nice if everyone who's ever known Marissa would return for her funeral, like Alex, Oliver, Luke, DJ and maybe even Trey. However I think the show will probably loose a lot of its fans because Marissa was sooooooooo popular. Also I think this episode probably raked in a lot of viewers because my friends who don't normally watch it did and they too were crying with me. I can't wait for season 4, America's lucky, they get to see it before us Brits...grrrrr!LOL (let me know what happens plz)!
