Sandy says Dr. Kim just called and he has been suspended until the disciplinary committee can decide whether he is going to be expelled. Ryan says he knows Sandy wants him to say hes sorry, but hes not. Ryan says Oliver is dangerous, and he basically admitted to him that he was after Marissa and wanted him gone. Sandy wonders why he had the assault charges against him dropped then? Ryan is shocked to learn he did that. Sandy says if Oliver wanted him gone than he would make sure he was back in juvie. Sandy asks Ryan to talk to him, tell him what is going on. Ryan says Oliver is dangerous. Sandy says what he knows is that he attacked Oliver while he was out on probation, he doesnt know why he would risk everything. Ryan says talking to Sandy is pointless because he wont believe him. Sandy says this is not about believing, it is about what he did. Sandy says the next time he wants to raise his fist, he should open his mouth and talk. Sandy says he cant ground him, he wont chain him, if he wants to leave than he can. However, Sandy tells Ryan that if he wants to stay and be a part of this family then he will go nowhere and see no one unless he and Kirsten say it is okay. 

Commercial Break

Ryan is stuck in the pool house trying to entertain himself as school is starting for the others. He reads, does some sit-ups, and just sits around bored out of his mind.

At school, Marissa is ranting to Summer about what happened between Ryan and Oliver. Summer can't believe that Ryan just punched Oliver for no reason. Marissa says that is what Ryan does, he punches people, he doesn't talk to them. Summer says he had to have a reason, Ryan is violent but not stupid. Marissa says Ryan thinks Oliver is in love with her. Summer replies isn't he, at least a little? Marissa says Oliver and her are just friends, and Oliver is the only guy who talks to her and isn't the least bit jealous. Summer asks how she and Ryan are? Marissa says they broke up. Summer says that means they are both single, which rocks. She says they are free and liberated, so she thinks they should do a facial and massage after school. Marissa says she can't because she's studying with Oliver. Summer asks "this weekend?" Marissa says she is spending the weekend at her mom's. Summer asks when they will hang out? Marissa says soon. 

Seth and Anna are discussing Ryan's situation. Anna asks if his parent will kick Ryan out? Seth doesn't think Ryan will be kicked out of his house, even if he does get expelled. Anna asks how Ryan is doing. Seth doesn't know because he hasn't talked to him. Seth says there is really nothing he can do, he told Ryan to just stay away from Oliver, but Ryan didn't listen. They run into Summer and Marissa, and it is an awkward moment. Seth says this is weird, just because she and Ryan aren't together anymore doesn't mean . . Summer finishes his sentence and says doesn't mean we can't all . . . Seth says exactly. As Marissa is asking if Ryan is okay, Oliver shows up and asks what they are all doing this weekend. He proposes a ski trip, and he and Marissa walk off to Western Civilization. They basically skip off, and Anna says Oliver seems almost . . . Seth says "Happy?" Summer says he should be, he has Marissa all to himself now. 

At Kirsten's work, Sandy asks Kirsten if he made a mistake bringing Ryan into their home. Kirsten says they will work everything out. Suddenly, some workmen show up in Kirsten's office to do some work. Julie follows and says Kirsten isn't supposed to be here. Kirsten asks what she is doing? Julie says she is giving the office a facelift. Kirsten says she can't just initiate a redesign, she has to get approvals. Julie says Caleb said it was okay. The workmen take all Kirsten's furniture out, and then an angry Caleb walks in and asks what is going on because some man in jumpsuit just took his massage chair. Caleb says he wants his office back! Julie says by the time they get back from lunch he'll have his office back and he will love it. Julie and Caleb leave for lunch, and Kirsten is left with an empty office. 

At the Cohen's, Ryan is still bored out of his mind and trying to find something to do. He picks up the phone and dials it, but then he puts it back down.

Back at school, at lunch Oliver tries to convince Marissa to go away for the weekend, but she says she can't. Luke shows up, and he asks what is going on. Oliver asks Luke to convince Marissa to go to Mammoth with them for the weekend. Luke asks who is going? Marissa says not her because she's going to be spending the weekend at her mom's. Oliver says that means she'll be near Ryan, which is not good for her right now. Luke says that is up to Marissa. Marissa says it is not a big deal. Oliver says at least let him get her and her mom a suite at the hotel so she doesn't have to think about Ryan. Marissa's phone rings, and she sees it is Ryan calling. She decides not to answer it. Luke asks if she's not going to answer it? Oliver says she's not talking to Ryan. Luke asks Oliver if she is talking to him, or if she is doing all of her talking for her? MArissa thinks she should go, but Luke tells her to stay and enjoy her lunch. Luke leaves, and Oliver apologizes. HE says he can just be a little overprotective sometimes. Marissa says it is okay, and she leaves to get dessert. Oliver grabs her phone, listens to Ryan's message asking to meet her in the library after school, and he deletes it! 

Anna asks Seth what the plan for after school is? Seth says he wants to go home and check on Ryan. Summer shows up and asks what is going on? Seth lies and says they were thinking about the comic book store, so Summer asks if she can come. Seth is shocked, but Summer says she likes comics, Betty and Veronica had a huge influence on her. They say they believe that. Summer says besides MArissa is with Oliver, and she has a whole afternoon to kill. Anna says that is great, but shouldn't Seth check on Ryan? Suddenly, Ryan shows up, and Seth goes to talk to him. Seth tells Ryan that he shouldn't be here. Ryan says Marissa isn't taking his calls so he has to see her. Ryan rants about Oliver being unstable. He says one girl had a restraining order against him, and he's positive his girlfriend Natalie doesn't exist. Seth tells Ryan that Oliver may be crazy, but this mission impossible act he is pulling isn't helping. Ryan says he has to go.

Ryan goes to the library, and meets up with Oliver, not Marissa. Oliver says she isn't coming, and she asked him to tell Ryan not to call her anymore. Oliver says if he does she will get a restraining order against him. Ryan says really, what's that like? Oliver says this is not his fault, Ryan is the one who lied to her, who stole from her and beat up her friend. Oliver said he tried to help him by not pressing charges, but if he doesn't give up nobody will be able to help him. Oliver says it is over, but Ryan says it hasn't even begun!

She says she can't talk to Julie because she is Julie, and if she talks to her dad he will just think she is jealous. Ryan shows up for coffee, and Kirsten pours him some. Ryan says nothing to Sandy, and Sandy says nothing to him. Ryan leaves, and Kirsten thinks perhaps they are being to tough on Ryan. Sandy says it is for his own good.

As Julie drinks coffee and reads the paper, she sees Ryan. She asks why he is late for school? Ryan says he got suspended. She says what a surprise, and she asks if he beat up Dr. Kim this time?

Ryan explains what is going on with Marissa with Oliver. He begs her to keep Marissa away from Oliver because he is not well.

At school, Oliver is disappointed when Marissa hasn't talked to her mom about going away to Mammoth. Oliver says if she doesn't want to hang out it is fine, but just tell him.

Seth says he has chosen to stay in the fortress of solitude. Seth gives Summer some starter comics (Batman, Sandman, for example), all of which Anna thinks are too dark and gritty. 

In the kitchen, Anna asks Sandy if he read comics when he was a kid? Sandy says he did, but not like Seth. Anna says it is so hard to find another comic book person, especially one who likes "Deathcap" and sailing. Sanyd says Deathcap is a band, right?  She says she thought she was the only one who liked them. Suddenly, Kirsten shows up with some groceries, and Anna asks Sandy if he and Mrs. Cohen have a lot in common. He says yes at first, but then says no not really. She asks him what he thinks is a key to a successful relationship? Kirsten keeps yelling for help, and Sandy says as far as Cohen men are concerned the key is patience. Seth walks in and asks his dad if Summer can stay for dinner? Anna makes a face and leaves to help Kirsten with the groceries. Sandy smacks Seth up across the head and asks him what he is doing. Look shows up carrying groceries, he says he came to see Ryan.
