Trey Atwood is a fictional character on the FOX television series The O.C., portrayed by Bradley Stryker during season one and by Logan Marshall-Green from season two onward. Trey is the older brother of main character Ryan Atwood and grew up with him in Chino with their mother, Dawn Atwood.

Season 1[edit]

Bradley Stryker makes two appearances in the first season as Trey Atwood. The first is in the cold open of the pilot episode when he steals a Chevrolet Camaro, crashing it when trying to evade the police. He is arrested and sent to prison.

Trey next appears in the eleventh episode when, at Thanksgiving, he calls Ryan from prison. Trey receives a visit from Ryan and explains that he needs a favour, as people on the inside are beating him up to "remind" him that he owes $6,000. Trey asks Ryan to deliver a stolen car to clear the debt, which he does as a last favour. Afterwards, Trey tells Ryan to leave him behind.

Season 2[edit]

In the latter half of the second season, Trey is released from prison. With nowhere else to go, he moves in with Ryan and the Cohens, during which time he meets and becomes friendly with Marissa Cooper, who attempts to help him settle in Newport Beach.

With his brother's support, Trey tries to make a fresh start. However, he struggles to adjust and resorts to stealing before becoming involved with drugs. While high, he attempts to rape Marissa. Trey regrets it afterwards and apologizes to Marissa but then warns her not to tell Ryan.

After finding out about the rape attempt, Ryan confronts Trey, and the two fight. An enraged Trey strangles Ryan and is only stopped by Marissa shooting Trey with his gun.

Season 3[edit]

Trey is revealed to have been in a coma for several months due to his gunshot wound. When he awakens, he is blackmailed by Julie Cooper into telling the authorities that Ryan rather than Marissa shot him. However, Marissa eventually convinces Trey to tell the truth. Facing a broken relationship with Ryan and believing his brother would be better off without him, Trey is last seen on a bus leaving Newport for Las Vegas. His ex-girlfriend Jess later re-appears, begging Ryan to help her with some boyfriend troubles. She tells Ryan that Trey is working as a blackjack dealer. While Ryan is at Jess' house, Trey calls on the phone, but Ryan refuses to speak to him. Later, Trey sends him a birthday gift of a toy Chevrolet Camaro like the one they stole in the pilot episode.
