90210 Review: "Girl Fight"
After last week set up this week's episode, "Girl Fight," with so many exciting twists and turns, we were pretty excited for all the drama this week. So did the episode live up to that hype?
While some of the stories were obviously jucier than others, we're going to go with yes. First we have to discuss the main storyline from which the episode gets its name: Naomi and Ivy's cat fight.
It was so good to have the bitch back after watching Naomi painfully try to talk about canoes with Liam, while Ivy popped in all flirty. Showing up in a bikini with a picnic to crash Ivy and Liam's surf practice? Genius.
Even more genius? The writer, who decided that when Naomi was in a bikini would be when they got into a cat fight. HOT.
Even hotter? Watching Naomi and Liam rekindle things after Naomi's display of "balls." Hey, those are much more Liam's words than ours. While the love triangle was fun, we're big fan of these two's chemistry and would rather see them together.
In other love triangle news, Dixon's lies to Silver about Teddy and Savannah finally came crashing down last night. Sorry Sixon fans out there, we're glad they did. The couple might have been cute first season, but we're so over them.
We're definitely curious to see how things go with Silver and Teddy next week, but even more excited to see what develops from Dixon's birth mother showing up at the end! Is it next week yet?
In our final "love" triangle, things to be advancing ever so slowly as Gia ditched a chance to rekindle things with her ex, Alexa, to instead spend time with Adrianna. We all know what's going to happen from the 90210 spoilers, so just get your ratings-ploy over with already!
Also being dragged on was the Annie-Jasper storyline. Annie finally stood up to the creep bag, and it turns out he's been bluffing about going to the cops. Too bad the confession letter Annie wrote auto-saved on her laptop. Who do you think is going to find it next week?
We were also glad to meet Ivy's mother this week and definitely loved the little twist in which she was introduced. We just hope Mr. Matthews used a condom. Really? Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Steven Tyler!?
Our only complaint about the episode? The scenes with the girls together seem so forced and cheesy. Owell, with the good comes the bad.
Okay, enough of our rambling opinions, we're going to end this review with some 90210 quotes. As usual, pop in with your comments below.
Naomi: It's about me and Liam. We obviously have incredible sexual chemistry.
Ivy: Good to know.
Naomi: I don't understand why he's so stiff around me. Outside the bedroom, inside, like I said, he's plenty stiff. | permalink
Teddy: Dixon told me the truth. About the dance, Savananah and everything.
Silver: I thought Savannah was a girl. Well obviously she's a girl, but I thought that she was a girl girl, not a sister girl.
Teddy: Well she's a sister girl. | permalink
Liam: I've been feeling distant from you ever since we got back together. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Why we weren't connecting. You've been so polite, so unlike the girl I fell for.
Naomi: I just wanted everything to be perfect. I guess somehow that translated into me not being myself.
Liam: Well then you're done with that because the girl I fell for is ballsy, opinionated, and full of herself and today I finally saw her again. | permalink
Naomi: Okay guys, we have to focus. We have to work to do here. I am officially on the quest for the perfect LSD.
Silver: No, no.
Annie: I'm sorry, LSD?
Naomi: Every girl must have the perfect little sequent dress. The LSD is the most important element to a girl's wardrobe because boys like shiny things. They're kind of like babies in that regard.
Annie: Or like trout.
Naomi: True, Liam is totally a trout. | permalink
