The College Try -
Ryan and Seth prepare for their pre-college visits.
Seth and Ryan discuss their plan—Seth is going to fly to Brown and convince
them to accept him. They are hoping that Summer doesn’t end up on the same
flight as Seth, since it is so inconvenient. Kirsten comes in to take them
to the airport, and tells them that Sandy won’t be able to join them.
Kirsten, Seth, and Ryan arrive at the airport. Kirsten
and Ryan say farewell to Seth, and Kirsten tells Ryan that Berkeley will be
a breeze for him. She watches Ryan off, and then spots Theresa with a son,
who looks about the age that Ryan’s child with Theresa would have been.
Summer and Marissa pack for their college visits, and
Summer tells Marissa that everything is all wrong with them going to school
without Seth and Ryan. Marissa tells her that it is okay, since they will be
forced to focus on the future. She tells Summer that she is not going to be
involved with Volchok anymore, and is going to his place later to break
things off. Marissa tells Summer that as long as she is herself, Brown will
Neil pours Julie some tea when Summer and Marissa come
in and ask for help with getting their luggage in the car. After they leave,
Neil and Julie are shocked at the positive change in Marissa. Neil tells
Julie that he has a hospital event the next night, and that it would mean a
lot to him if she came. When she is hesitant, not wanting other women to
gossip about her, he suggests that they can invite Sandy and Kirsten along.
Ryan gets to his meeting at Berkeley, and he tells his
freshman guide that he is originally from Chino. The guide tells him to not
worry, since there is no mold there that he has to fit into. Ryan says that
he isn’t used to that.
Marissa visits Volchok at the diner and finds out that
he doesn’t have her stuff. He asks her why she is bailing on him. She tells
him that she has a fantasy about how her life should be, and her
relationship with him didn’t fit. Volchok tells her good luck, and tells her
that he’ll drop off her stuff.
Kirsten visits Sandy at work and tells him about
Theresa, asking him if they should tell Ryan. Sandy says that they should
keep it to themselves, at least until Ryan gets back.

perfect their college experiences are. Seth hears someone calling for him,
and is afraid to turn around, thinking it might be Summer. It’s Anna!

and Summer. Seth tells Anna that he wasn’t admitted to Brown, and she
suggests that he meet with the Admissions director.

night’s hospital event. Kirsten declines. Julie begs her, and Kirsten
finally agrees to go after Julie tells her that she needs her.
Ryan meets with some guys at college, Wes and Miguel.
They tell him about school, but the conversation stops short when Marissa
walks in the room and the other guys are attracted to her. She comes up and
says hi to Ryan before excusing herself, and one of the other guys goes to
get to know Marissa.
Seth and Anna go to the event that night, where Anna
points out the Admissions director. Seth goes up to meet him.
Summer talks to some students when she spots Seth
talking to the Admissions director. He agrees to meet with Seth the next day
to discuss some things. After he leaves, Summer asks Seth what he is doing
there, and is saddened to find out that Seth wanted to come to Brown—just
not with her. She is even more surprised when Anna comes up to Seth to ask
him how things went, and she tells Seth that everything he did makes sense
to her now.
Marissa and Wes chat about things when Ryan comes to
the same party. Marissa goes and talks to Ryan and the two decide that they

phone off to Kirsten, she tells him about Theresa.

tour. He tries to tell her the truth, but Summer tells him to leave her

address on the internet, and whatever happens, she is behind him.
Seth meets with the Admissions director, who is
surprised to find out that Seth isn’t actually a student there. After Seth
gives him his speech, he tells him that he cannot get in. Seth begs him,
telling him the truth—if he doesn’t get in, he will lose the woman that he
loves. The director’s heart seems to soften, but he tells Seth that he has
to stick by his decision, and wishes Seth well.
Sandy is shocked to find Ryan home, and he tells Ryan
that he understands.
Sandy confronts Kirsten, who tells him that once upon a
time, he would have understood that family means everything. Sandy tells
Kirsten that he has to get back to the office, and they will talk later.
Kirsten is angry.
At Berkeley, Wes tells Marissa that Ryan isn’t there
anymore. She is concerned, and wants to call Ryan, but Wes tells her that
Ryan will fill her in if he wants to.
Ryan goes to visit Theresa, but someone else answers
and tells him that Theresa will be home later. Theresa’s son, Daniel, comes
to the person, and she introduces him to Ryan as Theresa’s son.
Marissa and Wes hang out at his party and he tells her
that this is his second go at college. Marissa tells him that she
understands, and tells Wes about her past. She tells him that she isn’t the
kind of girl who belongs at college, or anywhere, for that matter. Wes tells
her that everyone belongs somewhere, but she says no, some people get lost.
Ryan tells Seth about Theresa, and Seth tells Ryan that
he is coming home early. Seth gets into the taxi, and Anna is sitting there

like he is the father since he felt like he was living someone else’s life
when he went to Berkeley. Marissa says that she could tell that Berkeley
felt right for Ryan, since she could see it on his face. Ryan says that it
did. Marissa says that he will find his way back there.
Sandy proposes a toast at the dinner, and Neil
accidentally puts Kirsten on the spot by asking her what she thinks about
Sandy leading the Newport Group. Kirsten is speechless. However, she soon
proposes her own toast—to Sandy Cohen, who ended up being just like her
father. She storms out, grabbing a drink on her way out. Outside, she
swallows it in one gulp.
