90210 Review: Lose Yourself
They say running away never solves anything, but "Project Runaway" may have proved that old adage wrong.
Annie ran into Jeremy and managed to reach an agreement with him over the battle for Marla's inheritance. Or so she thought. Finding out that her having sold the necklace that Marla had given her would make her look like a gold digger, Annie attempted to get it back from the jeweler. But, apparently, someone had beat her to it. And had fed the jeweler the same line about it belonging to their dear old Grandma. That dastardly Jeremy! Or was it?
I think it was Liam. Annie may have brushed him off earlier but he's on a tear to be a good friend lately so who knows?
Liam also came to the rescue of Naomi in that debacle of a CU fashion show. Holly may have one-uped Naomi by signing Liam as her model (not to mention stealing Naomi's entire line) but the way Liam thugged down the runway was priceless.
Can we just talk about how quickly the fashion show came together? It takes Project Runway a full season to get its act together. It took Naomi and company about seven minutes. And that's not just in TV time. I seriously think creating the costumes, planning the venue and glamorizing the guests took about as much time as it takes Tim Gunn to strap on those noose neckties of his.
And, of course, it was fabulous! Well, at least, Naomi was. The girl never fails to wow me with her costumes. And she definitely killed it with that white-Afroed, silver-shredded, belly-baring ensemble. She looked about 10 feet tall and worked that runway like a ho working the midnight stroll. Get it, girl!
Get it she did. She got the internship at Holly's mom's event planning company. The hottest Hollywood event planning company in existence to boot. Just when I thought Naomi and Holly had managed to set aside their differences and improve their relationship, something wicked this way comes. And her name is Mama.
Dixon managed to get the drug monkey off his back and actually produced a decent track. Thanks to Adrianna, of course, who provided the inspiration (and backing vocals) for that song he wowed the crowd with at the backstage party. For once, he didn't get on my last nerve. Wanna download all the 90210 music from this episode? You know where to go!
Navid flipped out when he learned Silver was moving on and dating again. Enough to put a halt to his 21 Jump Street ways. Confronting Cat about not wanting to do the undercover thing anymore, all I saw in that was a reason to hook those two up.
The best, however, was finally bidding adieu to Teddy. Running off to his happily ever after with Shane and finally finding himself was a perfect way to prove that wherever you go, there you are. And even though it was bittersweet, Teddy turned out to be the only one in the gang able to let go of the past and lose himself.
