“Boyfriends Are Like Purses”

Summer has sprung and the teens of Laguna Beach could not be more excited. All the college kids return to their home town for an action-packed time. L.C. decides to have a barbeque as part of a summer kickoff. Steaks, burgers, and tons of food are purchased as this group knows how to go all out during any occasion. L.C.’s house is absolutely gorgeous. Sitting high up on a hill, her backyard boasts a pool overlooking a cliff. Tons of guests are invited, including most of the senior class. Taylor, Talan, Stephen, and Jason are just a few of the attendees. The hot tub gets rather steamy as L.C. and Jason engage in heavy conversation. The two joyfully play fight around the pool as onlookers watch. Stephen in particular, is caught staring intensely on more then one occasion. Well you know Stephen, you should have snatched her up when you had the chance.

Meanwhile Kristen’s car won’t start when she is about to hit the town with the girls. The next day her dad presents her with a white BMW X5. It is so nice and I am very jealous. I guess that’s what you get if you live in Laguna. Oh and you can even enter to win Kristen's old car. Yea it may not start or work, but it is serious Laguna Beach fan material.

During the show L.C. and her friends compare boys to handbags or purses. At first I did not see how the two could possibly be compared but then after hearing their reasoning it makes logical sense. Gorgeous bags are assholes. There are some purses you like but don’t want to be seen with, and there are those you wear everyday because you are comfortable with them. While the girls are having this clever discussion, L.C.’s phone rings and it is Jason. He asks her to dinner that evening and she willingly accepts.

Jason pulls up in an antique hot rod and the two go to a cute outdoor restaurant. Smiling and giggling the whole time, the two seem to really be enjoying each others company. I know Jason is a player but it seems like he actually cares and is really trying with L.C. The two then retreat back to L.C.‘s Jacuzzi where they share some laughs and some kisses. They are two people that I would never put together but sometimes those are the relationships that last. What does Stephen think about all this? Will L.C. and Jason start dating? Till we blog again!!!!

This week's Laguna was so good and full of lots of surprises. I agree that LC's house is absolutely gorgeous. If I were her, I would be having barbeques and parties all the time. It was clear from the start of the barbeque that LC and Jason were into each other. They were flirting the whole time and poor Stephen was just standing on the side with a sad puppy dog look on his cute face. Oh well I think it's time for LC to get over Stephen because deep down he still wants Kristen back.
For the first time ever, Jason was actually being a nice guy and he really went out of his way to make his date with LC perfect. I'm sure he never took the hot rod out for Alex or Jess. It seems like the two might actually make a cute couple. How many more episodes are left anyway? I don't know what I'm going to do when the show is over!

I first want to say that L.C.'s house is amazing. I wish I had her house. In addition, I am so glad L.C. and Jason are starting to date. I think they are the hottest couple together, I just hope that Jason does not play L.C. like he did his past two girlfriends. However, they are not boyfriend and girlfriend yet but I think they will be soon. Also, I am glad that L.C. is hooking up with Jason because I want Stephen to get mad. He could have had L.C. whenever he wanted but he loved Kristen. Now, when the tables turn, Stephen seems to look a little jealous. But, L.C. said that she is 102% over Stephen. So I guess there are no more chances for L.C. and Stephen to become a couple. Back to L.C. and Jason, I can not believe that he picked her up in that car, or should I say go cart. That was a little weird, but L.C. did not mind. I love them together.

I also want to talk about Kristen. I can not believe that her Dad bought her a brand new BMW. That is awesome. She sems to be very excied about it, as I am sure anyone would be.

I can't wait to see what happens next in the wonderful world of Laguna Beach.

Well last nights episode was definitely worth leaving the library for and possibly receiving on lower grade on my test! LCs house is definitely gorgeous (much nicer than her old one) and is the perfect place to start off the summer with a barquce. I thought for sure this is where Stephen and LCs summer romance would begin but was a wrong. LC and Jason just totally clicked in the hot tub that night. And you are right, Stephen should have gotten her well he had the chance, because we all know he had a big chance.
Of course when Kristen’s car breaks down her parents were nice enough to buy her a brand new BMW X5 – not going to lie, I am a little jealous. I agree with you, at first I did not really get the comparison of boys to purses, but I see where they are coming from now. And are we all surprised about how well Jason is treating LC. They both needed it, LC needed a boy to finally treat with respect and Jason just needed an older girl to figure out how to respect a girl! Till next week!

First of all let me say, I can’t believe LC is dating Jason. How random is that? It came out of nowhere. I could not believe how they were hanging out one night and by the end they were jumping on each other and flirting incessantly. I think they look great together, but it just makes no sense to me and of course now it’s going to cause loads of drama. When they were kissing in the pool, I was thinking that they looked so adorable but I know that it’s not going to last because Jason is such a player. I feel like LC doesn’t even realize that though. PS I’d love to hear what Steven has to say about the whole thing. And I’d just like to know what Kristin did to deserve a beemer…! Lucky girl. And boyfriends are like purses!! What a great quote.

I thought that the boy to bag comparison was cute. I never would have thought of it like that, but after hearing the girls explain, I too was convinced! L.C.’s barbeque was quite a success I thought and her house is amazing. I definitely didn’t see the L.C. and Jason thing coming but I thought it was cute. Jason did seem into her, or at least he does for the moment. As for Stephen, it is definitely his own fault for not dating L.C. when he had the chance. Some things aren’t always there when you decide to go back for them. I can’t believe the next episode is graduation…I hope this doesn’t mean the end is near although I am sure it is. We’ll have to wait and see I guess until next Monday!

I can't believe LC went on a date with Jason. Everytime Jason goes for a new girl I think that maybe he'll be different but he never is, so I guess in the episodes to come LC will be getting her heart broken. Stephen looked so jealous at LC's bbq. I really wanted to see them end up together, but I'm actually proud of LC for staying away from Stephen. He dragged her along all last season, they were always on and off kind of, so he needs to realize she just isn't sitting around waiting for him. But Jason?? I'm sure she good find someone better in Laguna Beach. Speaking of LC, her house is absolutly amazing. The view from the pool is insane. Her dad built that house, right? Or at least designed it. I don't think I'd be able to stay away at college if I lived in a house like that either.

Since when do high school or college kids date like this?? I want a guy to pick me up in a gorgeous car and take me to a cute little romantic restaurant for dinner. Where do I find one of these? These girls just wrap these guys around their fingers and get them to do whatever they want....I want to live in Laguna!

Now as for L.C. and Jason...can't say I ever saw that one coming. I don't feel bad for Stephen at all. He had a chance to have L.C. and he blew it. Maybe he'll get over Kristen now...finally. I don't feel bad for Kristen's little car situation. She just gets handed a new BMW! That's crazy!

I can't say that I completely understood the whole hangbag comparison, but your explanation does make sense. Boys are like purses!!

What is L.C. thinking?!?!? Jason is just a player and he isn't even the slightest bit interesting! I mean, I could see him getting all of these girls if he actually had some interesting things to say, but he just sits there and stares at them. But then again, L.C. doesn't have that much of a personality either... so maybe it's a match made in Heaven! I wonder how Stephen will feel when the two start officially dating. L.C. has finally moved on from him (Thank goodness!). Now if we could just get Kristen in a relationship...

I thought the barbeque was such a great idea! Don't we all wish we had hot tubs and pools our our back patio overlooking the landscape of beautiful California?? The whole Jason and LC think really caught me off guard as well. LC is my favorite and i don't want to see her hurt by Jason, I hope she really can change him into the nice guy this time! Speaking of LC, she was really strutting her stuff in that bikini...I think Stephen was probably kicking himself in the nuts under the water in that hot tub as he was staring at her all night! Oh well, whose fault is that?
How in the hell can Kristin go from a busted old piece of junk to an awesome BMW SUV?? If we could all only be so luck to live and work in Laguna! I am definitely jealous of that one.
Can't wait until Sunday to see the graduation episode!

I am so surprised by Jason and L.C. and kind of disappointed. Their date was ridiculous. They barely said anything to each other the whole time, the conversations were painfully boring, and yet, Jason kept insisting that L.C. was sooo "cute". Vomit....

That is true about Stephen though. You snooze, you lose. He should have gotten with L.C. so long ago. I mean, look at her house. Who wouldn't want to be with her? Haha...

Oh and I am definitely jealous of Kristen's new car. She is so spoiled but then again, who in Laguna isn't? I wish my parent would buy me a BMW. I won't hold my breath though.

Stephen is definitely going to be kicking himself for not being better to L.C. He could have had her for a VERY long time while he was busy chasing after the little playette Kristen. Now L.C. can do to him what he did to her for so long! Granted Jason is an airhead and I can't even imagine that date because the most converstaion I heard was him telling her she looked cute and her giggling every now and then. But I guess that's what she needs, a self-confidence boost!

I keep missing Laguna Beach!! It's killing me. But just commenting on the episode summary that you posted, I again am so jealous of the Laguna residents. They have EVERYTHING. In response to your title, “boyfriends are like purses”, that definitely seems true on this show. They change their mind about who they like every week. They all flirt with each other and when girls fight with one another, they try to “get even” by hooking up with their friends boyfriends. Is it me or does this seem like middle/ high school? I guess they did JUST graduate from high school, but I think they need to grow up a bit. I’m hoping once they go to college, they’ll learn a little bit more about what the world has to offer, what they can learn and what they want to do with their lives besides shop. I know it sounds like I’m “hating” on this show, but I’m not. Every episode just continues to shock me because I don’t see any of the characters “grow as people.”

Well the Suzuki was a Trooper, but not anymore. Kristen will no longer have to worry about her car overheating and breaking down, I mean not since her dad bought her a brand new BMW! How jealous am I right now, I mean talk about a graduation gift. The best was how she started off the episode complaining and saying how much she deserves a new car and of course that is exactly what she got, crazy huh.

LC and Jason, very unexpected but what else is new right. I’m glad to see that LC has finally moved on and is making Steven kick himself. Did you see the look on Steven’s face as he watched LC and Jason flirt it up? It was priceless! LC has the upper hand for once and I think it’s great, it is about time that Steven had a taste of his medicine, now he can finally see what he always had but doesn’t right now. I can’t wait to see what happens, will it be Jason or Steven? Hmmm.

I think Jason and L.C. look cute together, but she should be smarter than to get involved with him. I'm guessing that she doesn't know the games he plays with girls' heads, because I think she is a smart girl and would know better. However, he was very sweet to her and did take her out on a cute date. Maybe she will be the one to change him, because someone needs to do it. As for Kristin's new car, she did really need one, but it didn't need to be a BMW. I suppose, though, that her family has that kind of money, so why not buy your daughter an expensive car? At least you know she'll be safer than in the car she had before. I read something about winning her car, and I think they fixed it up and put a Play Station and a T.V. in it, and made the whole car better, so it's not like winning an old, used car.

I love the comparison of boys to handbags! It’s so true and I can totally relate! I am obsessed with LC’s house! I think Jason and LC might be the weirdest couple ever! He is such a player, and I don’t personally even find him attractive. He does seem to really care about her so maybe things will be different this time. Then again didn’t her really care about Jessica and Alex too? As horrible as it sounds, I almost hope Steven is jealous. I’m a huge LC fan and I really think he missed the boat! I highly doubt if my car wouldn’t start my dad would take me right to the BMW dealership and buy me a new car! Then again this is Laguna Beach; these girls usually get what they want. Thanks for your opinions and recaps!!

I just knew L.C. was trouble and was only gonna hurt Steven. Well I guess her and Jason make a good pair because they are both kind of shady in my opinion. The people in Laguna are so rich it is crazy. I don't even think my parents would have a BBQ like that or even any rich people I know! And they are only in high school or just graduated and in their first year of college.

Kristen soooo knew she was getting a new car. I just love how her dad just put all of her stuff in it and gave it to her. My parents would have probably made me sign my life away if anything should happen to it and I probably would of had to cut off my left arm to convince them to buy it for me. For Kristen, she reacted like I do when I buy a new outfit. Oh well, I guess that how they roll in Laguna!!!

I love LC's new house. Last season when Stephen and her went there before it was built I knew that it was going to be amazing. The hot tub and pool effect in the backyard just tops it off. Its amazing that LC has stayed such good friends with everyone so much younger than she is - I guess that is good since she keeps going back to Laguna - I feel like that is where her heart really is and she doesnt want to leave.
The whole LC, Jason thing is very intriguing, maybe he will treat her better than the last two - I hope so because LC deserves to be treated well. I can't believe Kristen got a brand new BMW - I am soooo jealous!
LC and Jason's date is so cute and you cant tell that she kinda likes him based on her little flirty attitude - I'm excited to see if anything will come out of this or Jason will go back to his old ways.

L.C. and Jason! This was a great episode and lots of things actually happened in it! Well if L.C. can't hook Stephen, she might as well go after the next most wanted guy in Laguna! I wonder how Stephen feels about her and Jason, because I hope he's jealous and realizes what he is missing out on.

Of course Kristin would get a brand new BMW. I wish my life was that easy! The kids on this show are so spoiled and they're not even out of high school yet!

I don't know about everyone else, but I think I would be a little embarassed driving around in Jason's dad's old car. But I guess it was the thought that counted. I really doubt that this relationship will actually become something though. Jason seems like he is too much of a player for L.C. She needs someone who is one hundred percent into her.
