Orange County bride Beth disappears shortly before the high profile-wedding to real estate tycoon Walter Hall's son Greg. Twelve days later, the ambitious D.A. Richard Lane declares her murdered and orders the arrest of barman Jake Garcia, in whose bar Laguna, which Ron Trott has a major share in, she was last seen, before being driven home by him as she was drunk; she even left a blood trace because she cut her foot in glass. The legal defense team faces an uphill battle in the OC which mistrusts everything from LA, but hopes Beth is alive, Ron even offers a $1,000,000 reward to find the runaway-bride, and has Jake's girl-friend Olivia coached to make him look human. Alas, Beth's body is found, strangled and badly bruised, after an anonymous tip by phone... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Behind the Orange Curtain is a mostly derogatory term used in Southern California to denote the border between Orange County and Los Angeles County. A lot of the scorn arises from the fact that Orange County is one of the few conservative bastions in historically liberal California. Some from the O.C. inhabitants use the term as a label of pride.
