tells her that she has a date lined up for her—Seung-ho’s cousin, Jung Nom.
Apparently, Yung-Nom is a pop singer in Korea and a model. Taylor tells
Summer that she owes it to herself to go to prom with the hottest guy she
can find and make Seth miserable. Summer agrees that this is a good point.
Ryan visits with Marissa at school and tells her that
he invited Theresa to prom. Ryan asks Marissa if she is still with Volchok,
and she says yes, and that they are going to prom together.
Seth leaves Summer a message and tries to explain
things about him and Anna to her—but then Anna shows up at the Cohen’s, and
says, “Hello, Seth!” Seth quickly hangs up the phone.
Ryan stops by Volchok’s and confronts him about seeing
someone else. Volchok asks Ryan why he would cheat on Marissa, since she is
so hot. Marissa comes to the door, and when she asks Ryan what he’s doing
there, he invites them to the Cohen’s the next night to get their pictures
done before prom. Marissa accepts the offer.
Anna and Ryan hug hello. Anna tells Ryan and Seth that

Marissa looks at her potential prom dress while Summer
listens to Jung Nom’s CD by his band, Big Korea. Summer looks at her napkin
confessional that Seth had given her after his last lies, and says that she
should mail it to the Cohens. Marissa says that it would be pointless, and
she tries to convince Summer that there is probably nothing going on with
Seth and Anna. Just then, Anna shows up. Marissa excuses herself, and Anna
tells Summer that there is nothing going on with her and Seth. Summer
doesn’t believe her, and says that her date will be there soon to get her,
so Anna has to leave. Anna asks her if she would mind if she went with Seth
if she already has a date, and Summer gives her permission. After Anna
leaves, Summer gets out Seth’s confessional and sticks it in an envelope.

him that if he screws things up for Marissa, he will beat him up.
Everyone comes to the prom, and the gang compliments

what she expected, and says that she wanted to make him something he wasn’t.
Marissa slaps him, and he leaves. Ryan comforts Marissa as she sobs.
Kirsten tells Julie about her temporary relapse after
the dinner, but says that she isn’t going to use her alcoholism as something
to hang over Sandy’s head to get him to value their marriage more. She tells
Julie that one more push could send them over the edge.
Theresa and Ryan hang out with Marissa at the after
party, who is feeling down about Volchok. She leaves to grab a drink.

out on them. Anna tells Seth that it is time for Phase Three of her plan-
telling Summer the truth. She leaves, telling them that she will see them in
Rhode Island. Seth finally tells Summer the truth about everything, and
Summer feels dumb for thinking he was dating Anna. She is embarrassed when

love each other, and Seth holds Summer’s hair out of her face while she

everything is okay, and he says yes.
Marissa stands alone on the pier drinking.
Theresa tells Ryan that she thinks Marissa has changed
and gotten stronger. She also says that Ryan has grown up for the better.
They agree that nothing should happen between them that night, and then they
hear a blood-curdling scream. They rush out and find out that Taylor’s money
for the party has been stolen—Volchok was able to get to it. Seung-ho
suggests that they call the police, but Ryan says to not bother, since he
thinks he knows where it is. He rushes out.
Ryan goes to Volchok’s and storms inside, where he
finds and grabs the money. Volchok tries to get him to fight him, but Ryan
refuses. Volchok tells him that if he wanted Marissa back, he could get her,
and Ryan punches him. The two begin fighting, and when Volchok grabs
something to hit Ryan upside the head with, Ryan turns on him and beats him
to the point of unconsciousness.
