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

all over again!!!
1 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

can i just say wow that episode was amazing, except i can't believe that Marissa was killed off!!! it was truly tearful, especially the way it showed Ryan from the previous episode in Tahiti, saving her then, except this time he couldn't. thats unbelievable, however its so predictable that the next season will all be about Ryan and his uncontrollable anger. I suppose it will again be a constant battle for the Cohen's and Ryan himself, to stay on the straight and narrow and stop him from seeking revenge. Upsettingly though Ryan was just getting sorted, going off to college, and him and Marissa seemed to be getting on better than when they were together. But maybe this precedes the next series as Ryan will be crushed and the big question will be "WILL RYAN RETURN TO HIS WICKED WAYS?!!" whatever happens, i hope volchuck realises what he's done, killed of the true fashion icon of the show and obviously everybody's favourite rebel Marissa. boo hoo.
