Synopsis

Unwilling to be totally dependent upon the generosity of Sandy and Kirsten Cohen (Peter Gallagher, Kelly Rowan), Ryan (Ben McKenzie) takes a job at the crab shack. Emboldened not only by his newfound independence but also by a steady paycheck, Ryan feels the time is ripe to ask next-door neighbor Marissa Cooper (Mischa Barton) for a date. Unfortunately, trouble looms in the form of Ryan's co-worker Donny (Paul Wasilewski), another product of the mean streets (of Corona, a city near Chino) -- and a person who fascinates the Cohens' sensitive son, Seth (Adam Brody). And in the ongoing intrigue (financial and otherwise) between the Cohens and the Coopers, Sandy has bad news for Jimmy (Tate Donovan), while Kirsten uncovers a secret long held by Jimmy's wife, Julie (Melinda Clarke).
