90210 Review: Can You Hear Me Now?

by at . Comments

And... we're back! To the same old drama... the same old problems... and the same dysfunctional 90210.

In "Mama Can You Hear Me?" Annie continued to delve into Liam's new relationship with Vanessa to the point of being a nudge. Why, exactly, did she care so much that Vanessa was into Liam? Let it go, girl. She really should have gone to Carnegie Mellon.

Vanessa confessed all to Liam. After playing the sad, poor girl role, the latter fell for it hook, line and sinker. Blah blah blah. There's something hinky about that girl. We all know it. But after seeing Liam defend Vanessa, I'm officially convinced Liam is a himbo. Nice to look at but nothing between those ears.

Angry Michelle

Naomi decided to play savior with Holly and her mom, Rachel. Frankly, it seemed like a lost cause. "Superstar" Mitchell Nash was hilarious and probably very true-to-life, but, honestly, Rachel needed to take a chill pill. Who would've thought Naomi would be Holly's biggest cheerleader? As always, though, no good deed went unpunished. It got Naomi fired. But (surprise!) Holly and Naomi became fast friends. For now. The way that pendulum swung was dizzying.

And I have to point out that no one can rock an outfit the way Naomi can. Especially a fedora. Dixon and Ivy take note. Hot damn!

Navid figured out that Silver's new boyfriend, Greg, was Adrianna's daughter, Maizy's, new daddy. (Follow all that?) Silver accused him of not being able to move on. Random coincidence? Methinks not. Does anyone else think Greg is about as exciting as a newly-laid turd. Yawn.

Elsewhere, Ivy manipulated new beau, Nick, into being a Hollywood paparazzi instead of a wartime journalist. Are we really supposed to care about this doomed relationship? Snore. And, please, red bow ties should get you automatically shot on the red carpet, never mind the battlefield.

Also, Austin and Dixon bonded over heartbreak. And burned Holly's sorority house to the ground. Good times! And frankly the best part of this boring ass episode.

Seriously, if it hadn't been for the zippy, lightning-fast, one-liners being winged back and forth, this hour would have been better than an Ambien.

So... will Navid stick his nose where it doesn't belong just for the sake of friendship and reveal to Adrianna where her little girl ended up? Will Naomi and Holly become bosom buddies now? Will Vanessa continue to lead Liam by the nose to his eventual doom? Yes, yes and yes. But we'll see what next week brings!

Wait I'm confused .. How did Holly's sorority house burn down? And what happened between Navid and Adrianna to make them break up? Also am I the only one to find Naoimi quite attractive in her dress? Also I personally think she should hook up with Liam ..perfect couple right?

I actually enjoyed the episode, will be interesting to see the fall out of Adrianna knowing about her daughter and Silvers little relationship going on behind her back (because lets be honest, Silver isnt really doing the right thing by keeping it from Adrianna). Also wanting to see what Vanessa has up her sleeve and if Annie is going to back off (which i dont think she should at all! take that bitch down!). Was nice to see Holly and Naomi see eye to eye but wondering if theres room for more backstabbing? not sure if Holly is totally reciprocating of Naomis friendship. Want to see Naomi with the rest of the group more. Also wondering how the house burnt down? either the toilet paper lit up on power lines or the rock knocked a candle over or something. Dix and Austen will well and truly be best buddies trying to keep this one a secret lol. Would like to see Jen come back and surprise Naomi. Also if Kelly came back to sort out Silver! Would be kind of cool

I hate Silver even more than I did before. Moving somewhere completely new with a single parent you barely know? How SMART! Silver had no right to act all high and mighty about Adrianna. Yes, Adrianna gave her child up for adoption. That doesn't mean she has no right to know things about the women surrounding her daughter! Yes, her daughter. I mean she gave up Maizy so Maizy could have a happy, stable life. Now that Maizy's parents are divorced and her father is moving in with random girls he dated for what, a week, Adrianna DOES have a right to know what's going on. Silver expecting Navid to not tell Adrianna was deplorable.

I was pretty disappointed that Vanessa just confessed everything so quickly after the acciddent I'd have like to see her squirm a bit moore and try to cover it up for some more episodes it could have been more entertaining that way + then she'd have more to loose because then she'd have become closer to Liam -just a thought... :)
Also: how BORING and bad dressed were Ivy and Annie this ep? And how obvious was it that Silver isn't going with what's-his-name to New York!? GOD! But I'm exited about the sorority house burning down -I didn't really see that one coming + it'll be fun to see Austin and Dixon as partners in crime -lol!

Adriannanavid

I agree with the review, Austin and Dixon bonding-time was by far the most entertaining in the episode -I actually felt a sort of flash back to back in season 1 when Dixon and Ethan used to bond and do fun bro stuff

Wow... am I really the only person out there who thinks its crazy that this show is painting it as perfectly okay for a college freshmen to be dating her professor? At least try to make it seem like their covering it up and not smooching each other in the quad.

this show is a mess!! i'm sorry, but didn't annie kill someone in a hit and run???? KILL? not stop and take a look. not call an ambulance? oh and yes, of course, she told everyone about it, the minute it happened, riiiiight. i hate how these writers seems to forget about everything.

@Leigh Raines: No, she did not. She did come back, however, once Adrianna had given birth and told her that she had adopted a baby girl from China and that right now she's with her parents, thus confirming that both her mother and father are alive too. But yes, my main point, no she didn't adopt the baby, but she did another.
