The End Of The Beginning
The most you ever wanted to know about Laguna...without actually moving there.
The time has finally arrived that any Laguna Beach high school senior dreads...graduation day. High school is over, and that means that soon the entire Laguna crew will pack up and go their separate ways to college. Life without Laguna Beach just doesn't seem right...
The entire Laguna crew prepares for the big day, donning the long gown and dorky looking cap. "It's so huge" Kristin complains to Alex H. later, wishing that they could wear something cuter on this monumental day. No one knows what exactly to wear. As Jessica tries on a revealing red dress in her house that her younger sister believes looks like lingerie, Cedric tells Jason that he thinks he'll just wear his boxers under the gown. That would certainly be a memorable graduation moment!
Tension rises, as the Laguna crew counts down the hours until they are officially out of high school. Knowing this, the parents give their kids graduation gifts in true Laguna style. Nothing says congratulations like a frying pan, or so Kristin's dad thinks as he hands her his graduation present. "Thanks, Dad... it'll go great in my new apartment?" Kristin says, not knowing how to respond to such an untraditional gift. The other Laguna parents give their kids more traditional graduation gifts just before they leave. Alex H., Jess and Taylor come to the ceremony with a little more sparkle, as they wear their new necklaces and rings their parents handed them before they leave to go to the ceremony. Leave it to Casey, though to upstage all of her friends presents, as she gets an entire Tiffanys jewelry set, just the exact thing she wanted. Casey coos in awe of the gift as she heads off to the ceremony as well.
Just like any other Laguna event, Graduation day comes and goes. Everyone is there, well that is everyone except for Talan who decides not to walk and get his G.E.D instead. Alex H. and Kristin lay in bed the day after, in shock that high school is officially over for them, speechless for once. In the spirit of new beginnings, Casey invites Alex M, Taylor and Morgan over to her house for lunch the day after graduation to try to make up for her falling out with the girls. The girls sit and eat lunch together, and decide that the drama should stay behind with their high school days, as they all decide to be friends again.
However, Laguna Beach wouldn't be Laguna Beach without a little bit of scandal and drama. As Jason and Lauren get cozy at Jason's grandparent's house, Alex H. runs to the beach to tell Kristin and Jessica about the scandalous couple. "That's so random" the three girls agree, as they sit on the beach, letting Jessica vent about what a terrible boyfriend Jason will be to Lauren.
