The Shake Up (#4.14)
29 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Taylor's 19th birthday and she wishes Ryan to say "i love you" to her. She wonders if she should go to Berkley which she applied to before they started dating. He does but then freaks out when he finds out about Berkley, but then he calms down. Kirsten is worried about the environment in OC for her baby. Summer wants Seth to find himself. And Kaitlin while OK with Julie dating Frank wants to have more family time with her mom. And after they all resolve the issues there is an earthquake.

A very nice episode. It is moving towards rounding it up for the ending. Characters decide what to do and resolve their relationships. The episode has lots to laugh about, such as Kirsten with her baby yoga partners and then has a very dramatic ending. Now we are left wondering if anyone got hurt.
