Adam Brody has been popping up here and there lately — a guest spot on this past season of The League, a shaggy-haired appearance as Jess’s ex on this week’s New Girl, and an upcoming role opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme in a film titled Welcome to the Jungle (trailer here) — but for most people he will always be Seth Cohen from The O.C.. That’s why it caused a bit of a hubbub on the Internet this week when he told Nylon that, in his mind, Seth is probably dead by now.
Considering The OC just celebrated its 10th anniversary, in your mind, where is Seth Cohen now?
If I had to predict, I’d say Seth Cohen is dead.
Wait, what?! You know you’re breaking a million hearts right now, right?
I think he’d be going down to Mexico and probably had a bad car accident. It wasn’t any fault of his own, but yeah, knowing what I know now about Seth and his poor decision-making, that’s my guess.
Car accident in Mexico, eh? Not any fault of his own, you say? Sounds fishy. Sounds like … murder. But who could be so devious as to wait 11 years from the show’s premiere, and seven since it went off the air, to exact revenge on Seth Cohen for some unspecified offense? Couldn’t be Ryan or Summer. God forbid something broke down in their respective relationships, I see both of them as more “spontaneous crime of passion” murderers than “cut someone’s break lines in Mexico” murderers. Anna? Probably not. It was a bad break-up, sure, but things seemed solid when they re-connected at Brown. Julie Cooper? Maybe. You can never rule out Julie Cooper, for anything. She’s diabolical. But even she got a happy ending in the finale.
No, it’d have to be someone who left on bad terms. A real sick puppy. Someone with a screw loose. Someone unhinged and dangerous, with a history of violence. Someone like…
OLIVER. GOD DAMMIT. OF COURSE. HE WAS PROBABLY WORKING WITH THE CARTELS. THAT SON OF A BITCH.
