I don't like the time jump, but still I think this episode is very sad. When they start playing "A Bad Dream" and Ryan finds his photos with Marissa, it's a very emotional moment and I just can't stop crying.
I'm a big fan of this show. But killing Marissa off wasn't a good decision. She was special, misunderstood and wronged by the viewers. And she didn't deserve to die. I'm never going to get over this.
