It's Sandy and Ryan, and they're downstairs at the courtesy phone. When Oliver doesn't pick up, Sandy charges authoritatively toward Natalie, hands over his business card, and explains that they got an emergency card from the penthouse twenty minutes earlier, and now no one is answering. Natalie starts to turn them down, but then Ryan notices her nametag and asks her last name. Somehow this convinces her, because suddenly they're emerging from the elevator upstairs, Natalie leading the way, trailed by two security men. Natalie is really working her time on screen, by the way. She knocks and asks if Oliver's in there; he grunts a response, and she announces that she's coming in. He quickly assures her that he's fine, and that he just got out of the shower. No one wants to see that, and they all turn to go. Sandy thanks her for checking, but Ryan isn't ready to give in yet. He calls for Marissa, who doesn't answer. (Because she's stupid, but also because Oliver is holding a gun to his lips.) Ryan calls for her one last time, and suddenly Marissa shrieks, "Ryan, he's got a gun!" Sandy waves on the security team as Oliver continues gesturing with the gun, threatening to shoot himself. Ryan steps in to talk him out of it by pointing out that killing himself wouldn't hurt Ryan, though it would hurt Marissa, who is the one person who cares about Oliver. And I'm sure it always helps to stress to a suicide that there's only one person in the whole entire world who cares about him. Anyway, Oliver whines that Ryan doesn't know anything about him, but that Ryan's down with the parental abandonment, and the lack of friends, and the no one in his life who believes in him. He suggests that if Oliver will only put down the gun, he'll get a second chance. New Newport Chimes of Chances play as Oliver finally lowers the gun and crumples to the floor a sobbing mess. Marissa throws herself at Ryan, getting him in a nice firm chokehold.
Back at The Big House, Kirsten hangs up the phone and announces that Marissa is now with Lady Heather, and Oliver is on his way to the hospital with his new friends: the police. She heads off to clean up the pool house before the others get home. Why would she do that, again? Seth gets up from his Jenga game and says he should call Summer; when Anna exasperatedly asks why, he explains that she should know Marissa's okay. Anna points out that Summer doesn't even know Marissa's might not be okay, and Seth argues that she should know anyway because Summer and Marissa are best friends. Anna's had enough, and tells Seth to call her later because she's leaving. He argues that this "big huge thing just happened," and Anna agrees, pointing out that the first thing he did afterward was try to call Summer. As Seth stands in gape-mouthed surprise, Anna gives the requisite "great guy" breakup speech, and then announces that she's not going to stand there and pretend she's his girlfriend when she's not. At least not anymore. She poutily tells him that she'll see him in school. The fact that he doesn't chase after her says more than she ever could, though.
