So Mischa Barton's character Marissa Cooper was killed in an auto accident in the third-season finale last night. Maybe that'll infuse some life into the Fox show that jumped the shark after its first season. But what's to happen with rich boy/poor boy Ryan Atwood (Ben MacKenzie)? Here's what we hope for:

We all know that Ryan has anger-management issues. A "drunken and vengeful Volchok" caused the accident, so we expect Ryan to get into some serious trouble when he retaliates. If Fox is smart with cross-promotion, Ryan could get thrown in the same jail where the Prison Break boys are and help them plot their escape. Once free, they have bleeding-heart lawyer Sandy Cohen (Peter Gallagher) to come to their rescue...

So who's with us here?
