90210 Season Finale Review: To the Future!

by at . Comments

Talk about pomp and circumstance. Not only did we have graduation - but we were treated to a wedding, a near suicide and a visit from the stork.

Wow...so Naomi got knocked up! And here I thought the big event would have been Ivy and Raj's Bollywood nuptials. Or the fact that Adrianna was getting ghostly visits from Javier and teetering ever so slightly towards insanity.

Nah. As usual, Naomi stole everyone's thunder in "To the Future!."

Congrats, Seniors!

Naomi let go of her dream of going to CU by taking the blame for cheating on her history paper. Accused by the principal and the creepy history teacher of a cheating conspiracy between herself and Max, Naomi didn't want to see Max's MIT future taken away from him with the threat of expulsion. He was stunned that Naomi would do that for him.

But she seemed cool with getting expelled and more than happy to just get her GED. Practically hysterical at the news of Ivy's impending marriage, planning the wedding seemed of bigger concern to her. Flaky much?

Liam threw Annie for a loop when he revealed to her right before graduation that he would not be attending college. Great timing, dude. Way to ruin the huge day. Feeling betrayed by Liam not wanting the same future as she had been planning for them and not being able to trust him, Annie broke up with him.

During his valedictorian speech, Max asked the graduating class what kind of person they wanted to be when they grew up. Answering his own question when he saw Naomi staring lovingly up at him, Max decided he wanted to be an honest one and confessed that he was the one who cheated. Shock and awe.

It was sweet, though, when Naomi ran after him and asked him why he'd fessed up and he said because he wanted to be able to be the kind of guy who deserved to be with a girl like her in the future. Be careful what you wish for, Max.

Ivy and Raj told their respective parents of their engagement. Raj's parents were pretty blase about the whole thing. It was laid-back hippie Laurel who basically had a cow at the news. Concerned that Ivy was too young to get married, her true fear was that Ivy was wasting her time giving her heart to a man who would be dead in a short time.

Meanwhile, Silver and Adrianna resumed their BFF status and swore they'd be friends until they were old ladies. Sure. Shortly thereafter, Adrianna started to get ghostly guilt-trip visits from her old buddy Javier. It was only a matter of time before she began to crack. You can't expect to find happiness bringing misery to others. And boy did Javier remind her of that.

Elsewhere, Naomi threw Ivy a bachelorette party that bombed big-time. Henna hand-painting and penis ice cubes in the drinks just didn't cut it. The guys threw Raj his own bachelor party that took a wrong turn when "Terry" the stripper turned out to be a guy. What to do? Make it a bachelor/ette party!

By the way, isn't the legal drinking age in California 21? And just how did a bunch of teenagers get a stripper to come over? Details, writers, details.

Everyone was having a blast watching Terry do his thing until Naomi grabbed Adrianna's bag and Silver's pills came flying out. Naomi asked why she had them. Busted! Silver freaked out, everyone stared daggers at Adrianna and the witch was cast out.

Silver and Navid proceeded to get back together. Liam talked to Annie and told her he had gotten a job on a deep-sea diving vessel and would be gone for a few months. He figured a couple of months at sea would help him think about his future.

I thought that was pretty mature of Liam. Not everyone should go straight into college after high school. Sometimes you just have to do your own thing. But Annie wasn't having it. She wished Liam good luck and basically brushed him off. 

Ivy and Raj

Dixon met with Laurel to convince her to go to Ivy's wedding. Since when did Dixon become the voice of wisdom and reason? Sigh. Laurel didn't want Ivy's heart to be broken but Dixon convinced her to go after telling her that life was short and Ivy was just seizing the day. Love conquers all.

Naomi was in full control freak mode at the wedding. Looking amazing, I might add, in that blue sari. Max showed up to tell her that his parents had forbidden him to ever see her again. Bad influence and all that. They'd decided to send him to a summer program in Cambridge in the hopes that would eventually get him into MIT again. Heartbroken, Naomi finally got an "I love you" from Max before he took off.  But at least she can go to CU after all.

Bollywood came to Beverly Hills when Ivy walked down the aisle. It was a full-on Hindu wedding elephant included. I would have loved to be at that shindig. Looked like fun! Living the remainder of his days to the fullest, Raj planned to spend them in the arms of his loving Ivy. It really was a beautiful ceremony with a killer ocean cliff view.

Stoned Laurel convinced Annie to let Liam "beat his own tambourine" and Annie ran off to say goodbye to him at the docks. Pledging her love and support, Annie watched as Liam sailed away. But will he sail back to her?

Shunned after her treachery was revealed, Adrianna showed up at the wedding looking like death warmed over and begging Silver for forgiveness. Silver simply walked away. Duh. How do you ever forgive a friend for something like that? No way you can ever forget.

Adrianna watched from that killer ocean cliff as her former bosom buddies partied without her. Egged on by Javier's ghost to jump, Adrianna finally shook off her demons and vowed to not give up and to try to be a better person. She's got a tough road ahead of her.

Having suffered a gash in her arm when Ivy's bridesmaids dive-bombed her for the bridal bouquet (which was hysterical by the way), Naomi went to the ER and came out with more than stitches. She delivered the news to Max in person. Baby on board!

Here's to the future. See everyone then!

While I really enjoyed this episode, there were no major cliff hangers for me...maybe I should stop reading the spoilers lol Anywho, I thought Ivy and Raj's wedding was BEAUTIFUL. I was really broken hearted to see Max and Naomi break up... I gotta admit I got a little teary eyed myself. I really LOVE those two together and I am looking forward to seeing how this whole pregnancy thing will work out. I'd be really surprised if she's lying considering all the drama she went through with no one believing her about Mr. Cannon raping her. BUT stranger things have happened on 90210!!
It was wonderful to see Dixon have more than 10 minutes air time....I really hope he is one of the people to come back next season. I'm staying hopeful! :-)
I am a little pissed about the whole Liam going off on a boat crap. I hope he'll be back for another season and that this isn't a way to write him off. I really like his character and hope we get some of the stuff we got from him when he first came on the scene.
And I left the best for last: while I was ITCHING for Ade to get busted, I didn't want the girl to become SO delusional that she would contemplate killing herself!!! Way to go on the acting though....her breakdown was actually believeable. I agree with those who said that this girl has A LOT of making up to do. Let's hope it lingers a while before they forgive her. P.S. I know I'll get some back lash for this but I like that Navid & Silver are back together....LOVE those two....too cute!!!
Till next season!!! :-)

How do we even know that Naomi is honest about the baby thing. I mean, she said to Annie that there's nothing she could say to make him stay. Maybe she made it up. I didn't see the stitches at her arm. did you see them? if yes, my theory might be a little far-fetched but still possible, isnt it?

Ivy was beautiful, Raj is adorible People here bringing up great points-
-Ivy's mom having a revelation after a convo with an 18-year-old
-Ade having the pills with her at the party!
-Annie & Naomi undergoing heartwrenching breakups, then acting all happy like nothing happened
-Naomi prego! I dont really care about Annie x Liam, I think Annie overreacted and shouldn't have broken up so fast But Max & Naomi are wonderful together, great chemistry, love em, and I was so afraid Max was gone for good at the ceremony! At the same time, it bums me out that it seems the only thing keeping them together is a baby. What an annoying cliche tv drama thing to do.

@GossipVesna Maybe she was planning to do it again. If she did, it would have made Silver look like she was neglecting herself and they could have sent her away for good then she could get Navid.

i LOVE max and naomi. theyre the reason 90210 is coming back to life for me, adorable, funny. i'm excited to see how they will handle the new pregnancy. I'm sure this will force Max to stay so he can help her figure it out, which means he can't do the summer program and get into MIT which means he's staying. more naomi and max time! and it kinda hurts me that people think she's lying about being pregnant. after all she's been thru, naomi has really grown, i think she's done with lying after seeing how it can have earth shattering affects. i like annie and liam also. I'm glad liams character is getting more depth to him he's been "supportive bf character for annie" way too long. i like him and when he gets into his emotional side it makes him so much more interesting as a character. i cant wait to see annie be a spendthrift like naomi with her new money. i'm so proud of adrianna! after everything went down with silver, i was like oh great now she's going to be all sad and depressed and wanna kill herself (which is what happened haha!). i'm tired of her self destructive ways. what did she think was going to happen with her scheming? with her drug use, her pregnancy, her career, javier, i'm tired of her feeling sorry for herself. when she decides to grow up and become a better person, i was shocked. bravo writers! maybe she make a transformation like annie did after the accident.

Easy to forget, Aries93, as Dixon has been a wallflower! And my thoughts on this finale? Like most of this season I found it pretty disappointing. - It's a real shame they didn't delve more into Teddy
- I hated the Raj/Ivy wedding stuff
- I realize they needed a way to wrap up the Ade pills story line (one of the story lines I liked) but the way they did it was too convenient
- again, this is 90210 and unrealism is the name of the game but where were the parents? Any parent?
- I guess we won't see any Annie inheritance drama with the daughter until next season but that whole side trip is something that should never have happened...

@reynolds: Oh, my deepest apologies. I almost forgot about Dixon. If the character had a decent storyline, I may remember his character history.

@Aries93 - "They've been pregnancies, I'll grant you that, but not a fake pregnancies." I try to forget some of these cheezy storylines but Dixon's ex Sasha faked a pregnancy, right?

Aries93

I think people on this show have done a lot of horrible things, but Adrianna crossed the line. LITERALLY! She did a horrible thing. Switching out Silver's meds could have resulted in something drastic. Silver may have killed herself or harmed someone else. I don't blame Silver or anyone else for how they're treating her. Also, I agree. I think Naomi may be faking it. They've been pregnancies, I'll grant you that, but not a fake pregnancies. I think this could be something they pull of as a fake. Naomi really could pull this off if she wanted to.
