"The Last Waltz" - but it seems like this is a first for many...

Another amazing episode last week but I was heartbroken to find that the MLB playoffs will take the shows spot for the next month...at this point I'm completely lost on what I will do every thursday night for my hour of devotion now - looks like those dvd's of season's one and two are going to come in handy after all. Anyway, here's a wrap up of last week's episode:

Marissa has her first day at the public school, Newport Union, of course she immediately runs into trouble, literally, running into tough girl, Heather. Marissa is just about to find herself in some serious trouble when another girl steps in, Casey whom slowly becomes Marissa's ticket to friendship at Newport Union. She then meets Casey's boyfriend Johnny and his friend Dennis. Dennis immediately reminded me of Seth, whether's its his goofy appereances, witty lines or maybe the fact that he wants to be called Chili?? Anyway, Marissa thinks that maybe this is her chance to get a clean slate and when they ask her to get lunch with them she calls Ryan and explains that she really needs to do this, and once again selfless Ryan watches her leave with her new crew, fighting his feelings the whole time.

Before leaving to pick up Marissa, Sandy and Ryan are discussing Ryan's new home-schooling plans when Ryan explains that he wants to actually go to Newport Union, perhaps to watch after Marissa. Sandy immediately shoots down this plan and tells Ryan that he needs to focus on himself and college, not just Marissa all the time.

Marissa comes home just after the foreclosure agent leaves Julie explaining that the house is being seized and she has 48 hours to leave. Julie tries to cover up and tells Marissa there was a mix up but Marissa catches her in her own games and agrees to move in with Summer for a few days at least until they can get back on their feet together.

Summer is busy back at Harbor preparing for the next school dance when the one and only Taylor approaches and asks how she could help. Summer is not only in shock, but startled when Taylor continues stating that she just wants to have friends at Harbor and is sorry that she can be such a pain in the butt. At this point it was pretty obvious to me that Taylor only had bad intentions, I'm just surprised that Summer actually fell for it all. But anyway, this scheme continues into the next day when somehow Taylor convinces Summer that she must fess up to helping Seth steal the tiki-hut or the Dean will suspend Seth altogether. Summer immediatly confesses to the Dean who responds that with this on her record, Summer could never proceed as Social Chair, but who would replace her...oh of course Taylor Townsend.

In the bussel of Marissa's new life, she blows off Ryan's breakfast date of the diner and we see him eating alone. Then later that day Marissa's friends try to convince her to attend the school dance with them, but she explains that she has plans with her boyfriend (finally remembering he exists) and can't go. On her way out of school, Heather reappears and makes a snide comment about the shooting, leaving Marissa humiliated and she runs away in tears. Johnny follows her and tries to cheer her up, but his flirtatious gestures leave Ryan unsettled and he runs to her rescue, just to embarrass her again. The next day he calls to apologize and asks her to the movies that night, she says that she is just going to try to have a relaxed night and catch up on some work, but she would call him later - is another disappointment brewing??

At the Cohen's, Kirsten receives a bushel of flowers from Charlotte, and calls to thank her. Charlotte begins to explain how the lake house is not the same without her and she misses her dearly. They agree to meet for lunch at the Harbor club, when Charlotte will be in Newport (coincidence??...i think not). When she hangs up we find that she is in a sleazy motel with her boyfriend as they discuss ways to swindle money from the Cohen family. Sandy explains to Kirsten that the Newport Group is failing and that the best decision may be to sell before it is too late. After alot of contemplating, Kirsten agrees that it is time to put her past behind her. At lunch with Charlotte, Charlotte wastes no time to explain her new business proposition: A place where women can go between rehab and returning home, something like the lake house for people in their position, and who better to fund the idea than Kirsten and the Newport Group! Charlotte is shocked to find that Kirsten was left no money and is actually going to close the Newport Group, and again tries to convince Kirsten that closing up shop won't free her of the past and her father.

As Julie is getting another visit from the foreclosure, this time with movers right behind him, at Summer's, Marissa's new friends show up to take her to the school dance. Without much hesitation, she agrees to go but just as they are getting in the car Seth and Ryan show up to surprise the girls. After some brief explanations, Marissa goes to her school dance and Summer and Seth hed to the harbor school dance, leaving Ryan home alone.

At Harbor, Taylor is taking all the credit for Summer's ideas and work and Seth decides to call Ryan to maybe convince him to go after Marissa? Ryan speeds over to Newport Union to find Marissa having a great time laughing with her new friends, Seth right behind him to stop him from anything he might have been thinking about doing. While Summer is looking for Seth around school, she catches Taylor and the dean in a makeout session in the stairwell. Probably the best blackmail Summer could find on these two!

Ryan goes back home, exhausted from the night and giving up the fight to find Marissa waiting for him in his room and they turn on the radio to dance together to their new song...

    I can't believe that the OC isn't going to be on for a whole month! But it's ok, because I'm hoping that the Yankees will win the World Series.

    I liked how they showed Marissa at the new school and how easily she made friends. I feel like that rarely happens to new kids at schools, but hey, it's the OC right? Sometimes I think to myself that I would ever want to date a guy like Ryan. He seems way too overprotected and I would feel too overwhelmed by his actions. I LOVED that Summer saw the Dean and Taylor making out! I knew something was up between them. I thought that part was SO juicy and now Summer can get her revenge on those two. So what are you going to talk about now that there's a one month gap to a new epsisode?

    This was definitely quite an episode. Let me first say that I totally agree with you about Dennis! From the second he openned his mouth I was thinking he seemed exactly like Seth - kind of weird. As far as all of the issues with Taylor, I could not believe how manipulative she was in her quest for the social chair. And the make-out session was ridiculous... I just knew someone was going to hook up with the dean! What are you going to write about for the next month? Maybe you could devote each week to a past episode, or maybe analyze some of the characters?

    Can you believe so much can happen in one hour!! I know this happens at the end of the episode but I so knew the Dean and Taylor were having an affair, it was completely obvious. I can not wait to see how that whole situation plays out. Also the whole thing with Charlotte is crazy (p.s. her boyfriend is very hot!) I would have never pretended that the whole rehab was a scam. Newport Union is one scary school and Marissa needs to take every opportunity she has to make friends. I feel bad for Ryan because his life is Marissa and he does have Seth, but he is understandably always with Summer. The ending was awesome when Marissa was waiting in the pool house for Ryan to come home – that made the entire hour! I also love how Seth and Summer will do anything for each other – its like they are one person!
    And the OC really is not going to be on for the entire month???

    So what are you going to do for the next entire MONTH when there will be no OC?? I hate when programs take these long "breaks" just when things were starting to get good. I hate the suspense. Blah. Anyway, I don't know if I completely trust Marissa's new friends yet. I feel so bad for Ryan. But he needs to just act out for once, he's been too quiet and laid back lately. I know this is all that he can do with his current situation, but really, he needs to stand his ground as well. Ugh, well I guess we'll see what happens in a month...

    I knew that horrible brat Taylor was up to something with the principal. It was so apparent to see that they were messing around. I wonder what Summer will do???? Obviously, revenge is just around the corner for little Miss Taylor.

    Speaking of crazy women invading the OC, Charlotte is definitely up to no good. I am curious to see why she wants all this money and if Kirsten will fall for her scheme. Charlotte’s idea of the house for women after rehab is definitely something Kirsten will want to pursue.

    I am happy to hear that Marissa surprised Ryan after the dance. As I said in my last post I feel bad for both of them, it always seems that finally when they are happy together something goes terribly wrong.

    On another note: I can’t believe that the OC won’t be on for another month. Stupid baseball playoffs….don’t they know how important the OC is to us??? What am I gonna do on my Thursday nights????

    Let me just start by saying that I love the pictures that you put on your blog. They are great! And they help me jog my memory of what happen in the previous episode. Ok, so what's the deal with the 3 new characters? Are they suppose to be like a parallel to Seth, Ryan, and Summer? If so, why? Did you get that impression, because I definitely did. And, even though Johnny has a girlfriend, Casey, I think he has a little thing with Marissa and Ryan's insincts were definitely right on this one. I am so mad that I have to wait a month to see the next episode!!

    I was extremely disappointed to see that the O.C. would not be on until November…a whole month away. It was however another great episode. I was glad to see Marissa make new friends who coincidentally were a lot like her other friends just minus the Chanel and all. I felt bad for Ryan at times, but Marissa did need to take the time to meet some new people at Newport Union and like Seth said, Marissa wasn’t going anywhere hence her waiting for Ryan back in the pool house. I have to be honestly I definitely knew that there was something up with Taylor and the Dean and I can’t wait for Summer to bust them. As for strange Charlotte, I knew there was more to her character but I really hope she doesn’t mess much more with KiKi although I know Sandy won’t allow that because he seemed to pick up on her shady ways. When the clips ran for the upcoming November shows I couldn’t help but get excited. It looks like Ryan may take off yet again, I mean he has to in order for it to be a new season for the O.C. right? Can’t wait until November 3rd, only three weeks to go!

    I cannot stand Taylor Townsend. Every week, I hate her more and more. I cannot wait until the day that she gets caught screwing the new dean.

    I am glad Sandy put a stop to Ryan going to Newport Union. As much as I love Ryan and Marissa together, he has a chance to make something of himself and ever since he got with Marissa, he has been getting in trouble time and time again. I think it would be best if they went through a little separation.

    Although I am really sad that the O.C. won't be on for a few weeks, I'm excited because one of my other fav shows is on at the same time. Maybe I'll get a chance to catch up on some Alias now.
