Episode Info

As seniors at Harbor School and Newport Union prepare their college applications, Ryan, Seth, Summer and Marissa decide what to do about their futures. Will they go to college? Unable to make a decision, Marissa attends Johnny's (recurring guest star RYAN DONOWHO) surf competition instead of completing her college application. Meanwhile, Julie is forced to return to her roots, and Kirsten, eager to get back to work, asks a friend for help. Sandy invites an old friend from UC Berkeley to dinner with Seth and Ryan. Alternative rockers THE SUBWAYS perform. Former series star TATE DONOVAN makes his directorial debut.
