In the emotional series finale of "The O.C.," Ryan, the Cohens, the Coopers and their friends build new lives, resolve lingering issues, face major decisions and undergo shocking personal transformations.

In the aftermath of a major earthquake that cuts off power and communication between the Cohens and their loved ones, Seth must take over Ryan's role as the protector when Ryan is injured and the boys are stranded on a deserted road. Summer and Taylor worry about their missing boyfriends while searching for Summer's escaped pet rabbit -- and the quake leads to an unexpected reunion for Taylor. Trapped in a ruined ice cream shop, the scared Julie and Kaitlin spend the time bonding and dealing with an amorous clerk -- until they are saved by the only man in Newport for Julie. And Sandy takes charge of the frightened crowd in a damaged shopping mall.

The Shake Up Season 4, Episode 14 Feb 8, 2007 Paid

Taylor eagerly prepares for her first real birthday celebration, but she frets over the fact that Ryan has still not told her he loves her. Even more concerning is the fact that she has secretly applied to and been accepted at Berkeley, the same school Ryan is going to attend. Summer helps Taylor come up with a plan to help Ryan express his feelings. Meanwhile, Kaitlin misbehaves outrageously in reaction to Julie dating Frank (recurring guest star KEVIN SORBO) -- but Julie finds out there's more than just the usual Cooper rebelliousness behind Kaitlin's actions. Kirsten deals with more than her share of catty Newport women when she joins a yoga class. Summer wishes Seth were passionately interested in something, the way she is about the environment. And a powerful earthquake shakes Newport Beach.

The Case of the Franks Season 4, Episode 13 Feb 1, 2007 Paid

As Valentine's Day approaches, Ryan worries that the pressure of the holiday will ruin his relationship with Taylor.

Kirsten reminisces about her own history and decides to share a long-held secret with Sandy. Ryan begins to tentatively reconcile with his father, Frank (recurring guest star KEVIN SORBO), thanks to Taylor's meddling. And Julie must choose between Frank and the man whom Kaitlin wants her to marry.
