During planning for Harbor High's senior prom, Seth tries to convince Summer to accompany him. But she is still mad at him over the Anna Stern incident at Brown and refuses to listen to any explanation. Taylor arranges a date for Summer with the rock star Big Korea, the cousin of Taylor's Korean boyfriend Ho. Therefore, Seth's date for the prom is the visiting Anna, who gives him advice on how he can win back Summer. Ryan's date is Theresa, who tries to explain why she lied to him two years ago about having a miscarriage, while Marissa's date is Volchok, who causes a lot of trouble and by that raises Ryan's anger level, because he still feels responsible for Marissa.

Just Another Prom
28 April 2006 | by littlehacker2003See all my reviews

Harbor School's Senior Prom brings out the best and the worst in everyone. Taylor hits a high at prom, while Summer falls flat with her surprising prom date. Seth and Anna come up with a prom plan to win Summer back. Meanwhile, Marissa convinces Volchok to go to the prom and Ryan brings an unexpected old flame. When one of the girls is elected prom queen, it truly becomes a night to remember. Later, when Taylor's prom funds are missing, Ryan returns to his old ways and prom night turns brutal. ---------- -------------- ---------------------- --------------- ---------- -------------------- ---------------- ------------------ ---------------------- -------------- --------- ------------- ---------------- ERW
