What's Next for The OC?
Adam Brody (Seth Cohen) and Rachel Bilson (Summer Roberts) are dating both onscreen and off-screen. On The OC, their major challenge will most likely be staying in school since Dean Hess is trying so hard to get them kicked out along with their friends, Marissa and Ryan. Dean Hess will probably ease off Seth and Summer now that he has his own butt to save. At “The End of Summer” dance we found out he is having “relations” with Taylor Townsend, the snooty Social Chair.
Marissa’s drama will probably be equally split between her shattered home life and her new school, new friends, and new enemies. Her mom, Julie, is now broke and living in a crappy motel, and for the first time in the TV show, people (including myself) actually feel bad for the woman. As for Marissa, her new group of friends has many parallels to the old crowd (Seth, Summer and Ryan.) Does this mean she doesn’t have room for both groups? I hope she doesn’t screw things up with Ryan, but who knows what will happen with them. I must say though, her new friend Chili is hilarious, and I wish I had a Chili to make stupid comments at all the right moments when I need a good laugh.
Maybe Sandy and Kirsten will have some drama this week...things have been normal for them for at least two episodes now, so they are probably due for something to go wrong. What about college? Shouldn't all these kids start looking at schools...or are they all going to go the Orange County Community College together and keep the show going?
I have a feeling the end of Charlotte is nowhere in sight. She may leave Kirsten alone, but I don’t think she will leave Newport along quite yet.
Finally, the long wait is almost over! The OC will be back this Thursday and my summary will be up Friday or Saturday.
