    This Reaction To Marissa's Death On "The O.C." Is All Of Us

    "She's not just a character on a show, she's also really pretty..."

    Do you remember where you were on May 18, 2006, when Marissa Cooper tragically died on The O.C. on the Season 3 finale?

    Thanks a ton, Kevin Volchok.

    This scene from Netflix's new series, Girlboss, will take you back to that very *emotional* moment.

    The show, which loosely tells the story of how Sophia Amoruso founded Nasty Gal, takes place in the mid-00s, which means it is full of throwbacks to everything from eBay to Failure to Launch.

    Sophia (played by Britt Robertson) and her friends are watching The O.C. Season 3 finale LIVE, which means they don't know the horror that's about to unfold.

    Then THIS happens, as Imogen Heap's cover of "Hallelujah" plays hauntingly in the background...

    The dude on the left asks, "What's wrong with Melissa?" which is rude AF.

    Then, this girl has a full-on meltdown and it's perfect. She goes through many stages of grief, like denial...

    Shock...

    And, of course, anger. The kind of anger any teen growing up in the '00s experienced on that fateful night.

    Because Marissa was more than just a TV character...obviously.

    Then, this dude makes an appalling suggestion...

    And this perfect reaction sums up all the angst I've had over the past 10 years:

    Because, really, who the FUCK likes Taylor Townsend?

    FOX

    No one, that's who.
