Johnny and Chili, clad in rather unflattering wetsuits, brings their surfboards up on the beach, where an angry Marissa is waiting for them. Johnny doesn't understand what Marissa's problem is; he thought he was helping Ryan by getting him a job. Well, duh, Johnny. Marissa says she's getting mad at the wrong person here; it's Ryan's fault that Ryan is leaving, not Johnny's. She just wishes she had gotten to be really honest with him before he left. Johnny says he knows where she can find him.
Julie and 7 'n 7 enter the condo. Julie volunteers to spring for furniture for the place, and 7 'n 7 remarks that she must have gotten a small fortune when she pawned her ring. Now, that right there would make me think 7 'n 7 knew just a little bit too much about my life and that I shouldn't get involved with her, but it only gives Julie a momentary pause that's interrupted by 7 'n 7's offer of celebratory champagne. Even Julie has a problem seeing people who are fresh from rehab drinking alcohol, although she might just be trying to get more champagne for herself. Julie goes off to get 7 'n 7 some water, and 7 'n 7 calls someone on her cell phone and tells him "she's in," just in case you forgot that she was a con artist. I think 7 'n 7 sometimes forgets she's a con artist, too, like when she buys an expensive condo for the purpose of conning a woman who has to live in a motel because she's broke.
Ryan hands his bag to some guy on the ship, who probably throws it right back overboard. He's no rookie kid's servant! Welcome to the OCean, bitch! Ryan spots Marissa on the dock and walks over to her. She says she wants him to know how she really feels. She starts off really nice, so you think she's going to say she's mad at Ryan because she loves him and will miss him, but then she totally goes in the other direction and says Ryan is just like her father: a coward who sails away when things get difficult. Burn on you, Ryan! I hope none of the fishermen standing around them overheard that, or else Marissa might find herself on the business end of a fishing hook.
Seth peers through the blinds of the Mermaid Inn, which I'm surprised lets underaged kids rent rooms. Actually, I'm surprised those blinds haven't been rendered completely immobile from all the bodily fluids they've surely been exposed to. Despite being the brilliant mind behind this plan, Summer is more interested in wondering if whether bed she standing next to is the one Julie and Luke did it in. Taylor Townsend pulls up in her little red Mini and knocks on the door. Seth and Summer answer it, all smug that their plan worked. Except that it didn't, since they still don't have any proof whatsoever that Taylor Townsend and Dean Evil are involved with each other. What they do have on their side, though, is the writers' determination to wrap this storyline up in this episode no matter what, so Seth and Summer threaten to tell the entire school about Taylor Townsend and Dean Evil's affair unless Dean Evil lets Ryan back into school. They tell Taylor Townsend that she can either tell Sandy about everything or risk a couple of people at Harbor thinking -- but not knowing -- that she's doing the Dean of Discipline. Why couldn't Summer have said all this to Taylor Townsend at school instead of setting up this elaborate non-trap of Sidekicks and seedy motels?
