90210 Review: What Happens In Vegas Won't Stay In Vegas

at . Comments

Sin City never seemed as chaotic as when the Beverly Hills gang made its way on to the Strip. But was "Vegas, Maybe?" the cause of so much havoc in everyone's lives this week? Or was it the usual drama?

Naomi tried to get closer to all-of-a-sudden boyfriend Austin. Trying to figure out why Austin was acting so hinky, she got a rude awakening when she met his dbag of a dad, Judd Ridge (aka Billy Ray Cyrus). I've never cared for Billy Ray, but I actually liked him in this role. Arrogant and bloated, it suited him. And we finally got to see from where Austin got his smug cockiness. As far Austin, it was refreshing to see him showing some vulnerability for once. Nothing like having daddy issues.

Shane and Teddy

Poor Naomi, always trying to save the day and getting her tail caught in the door. Her Marilyn imitation was horrific, but at least she managed to impress pervy dad. Or so we thought. Not that it mattered in the end because Austin jumped down her throat about coming to his rescue.

Liam discovered the perks of being a celebrity when he met Vinny Guadagnino by the pool. Can someone please tell me what the appeal of that Jersey lizard king is? Liam had no issue with him, though, and got caught up in the good life. Until it wasn't that good anymore. Losing $80K at the poker tournament, panic set in until he managed to get it together and won some of his money back. Lesson learned. Stick with your little bar, leave the gambling to the sharks.

Dixon faced his old gambling demons successfully but that was easy to do when his new drug addiction was the one in control this time around. I laughed out loud when he was sweating bullets and started feeling claustrophobic while stuck in the private poker party with Liam. Really, Dixon? What more can you develop this season? An eating disorder? Are you going to start stalking Adrianna once she's done getting you clean?

Annie found out her whore-mongering boyfriend, Patrick was, well... a whore-mongerer. Surprise! Like no one saw THAT coming. But since Dixon came clean to her about his ADHD addiction in order to save Adrianna, Annie was now determined to save her brother and place him in rehab. But how? Use Patrick for the funds! Finally, the girl got some brains in her.

Annie really should've saved her anger for Patrick instead of wailing on Adrianna. Poor Ade. Another one trying to redeem herself and just getting the short end of the stick.

Navid continued to play undercover and tried to bring down Uncle Amal by delivering his mystery package. Socks. Was that just a feeble attempt to hook up the cute cop with him?

And is anyone as annoyed by bug-eyed Marissa as I am? Is that woman in love with Silver or what? Please, go away.

Teddy and Shane made this episode all worthwhile. Not only were they an incredibly cute couple that happened to be very easy on the eyes, but that faux wedding was actually beautiful. Teddy may have been wavering (again) about the whole gay future thing but seeing all his friends around him and hearing Shane's vows convinced him he was right where he had to be.

Until next week, that is.

90210 Season 4 Episode 8 Quotes

Because it's not a road trip without Silver and me pulling hair and throwing each other into a pool.


I want to bring my sad and pathetic friends with me.
