It's still raining on the Berkeley campus, but that won't stop Wes from delivering a cooler to an unknown destination! He runs into Marissa on the way, and invites her to a gathering later on. Wes also informs her that Ryan left because of a family emergency. Marissa's concerned about him, but isn't sure enough about the parameters of their new relationship to call and make sure he's okay. Especially since Wes is urging her not to, so that he can score with her tonight.
Ryan arrives at Theresa's apartment. The nanny from the airport answers the door, and informs Ryan that Theresa won't be home for a while. Then she picks up a small child and holds it in her arms. His name is Daniel, and Ryan's pretty freaked out to see him. But he keeps his composure and asks the nanny to let Theresa know he was there.
At another generic college party, Wes hands Marissa a drink (I'll assume it's not alcoholic, in keeping with Marissa's newfound love of sobriety), and tells her his life story. While he may seem like a "model freshman" now, this is actually his second try at a freshman year. Based on how old the guy looks, I'd say his first attempt was sometime in the early '90s. He says that he spent too much time partying and not enough studying the first time around, and went home after a few months to figure out what he really wanted out of college. Marissa quickly changes the subject to herself, and says that while she may seem like an eager college pre-frosh, it's all an act. And to think, just two years ago she was a model student and person. "On the weekends, I rode my little sister's pony for fun," she says. I guess that would be in between bouts of drinking so heavily that she passed out on her front yard. They can't exactly sell us this "Marissa used to be an angel" thing when she was established as something so much different in the freaking pilot episode. "What happened?" Wes asks. Oh, go buy the first two seasons on DVD, Wes. No one has time to explain this to your one-episode-only ass. "I guess everything happened," Marissa says. Not exactly: Marissa hasn't died yet. Let's work on making that happen so that Marissa can finally have the full human experience. Marissa doesn't think she belongs in college anymore. She doesn't think she belongs anywhere, actually. How about an acting class? Wes tells Marissa that everyone belongs somewhere. "Maybe some people just get lost," says Marissa. Wes looks very sad that his chances of hooking up tonight are so slim.
Ryan and Seth are on the phone again. Ryan tells Seth about his mess of a life, and Seth tells Ryan about his. Then Seth's cab to the airport arrives, and he hangs up. But he won't be riding alone: Anna's in the car already. She says that they have one more stop before the airport -- the Rhode Island School of Design. Anna's got a copy of Seth's comic book that she's hoping will serve as his portfolio. But Seth is all pessimistic and sad now, and just wants to give up on going to school in Rhode Island and go back to California to figure the rest of his life out. "Confidence!" Anna orders.
