90210 Review: You Can't Always Get What You Want

by at . Comments

On 90210 this week, Naomi continued on her quest to become a full-fledged grown-up - and almost achieved that impossible dream by landing a big client.

Unfortunately, this turned out to be "No Good Deed" because it was Mitchell Nash's 16-year-old, hateful, goth-wannabe daughter, Carla. Naomi promised to make her the most popular girl in high school. And, boy, did she when the brat posted the party on Facebook. Complete with under-age drinking and sex. Like Daddy, like daughter.

Realizing the kid was heading down Naomi-lane, Naomi developed a conscience and dispensed amazingly good advice. And in typical cat-style landed on her feet with a big star client to boost. Gotta love that girl. She's a born operator.

Liam on TV

Elsewhere, Pushy Vanessa booked Liam onto a talk show. Himbo Liam froze up. Disaster. But later he ended up saving a drowning girl from the bay and... voila! Party and reputation saved. Raise your hands if you knew that was a set-up when you saw that twisted look Vanessa had on her face watching the rescue. Manipulative much?

Meanwhile, Silver discovered she still had feelings for Navid. It's amazing how quickly her feelings can switch from one guy to another. Wasn't she ready to move to New York with a single dad just ONE week ago?

So Navid "decided" to go to Princeton when all he wanted was for Silver to want him to stay. If he only had known the embers still burned.

Adrianna discovered working with Dixon was a romance killer. Then Dixon added fuel to the fire by asking Adrianna to move in with him out of convenience. The classic fight ensued: Are you just saying nothing's wrong or am I supposed to figure it out while you're suffocating me with a pillow? In the end, Dixon did the right thing and asked her to move in properly. True love conquered all. For now.

Adrianna and Silver consoled each other over their messed up love lives. While it was nice to see the bosom buddies giving each other advice, you know it'll only be a matter of time before their hands are wrapped around each other's necks again.

Ivy's gallery was broken into and defaced. Gee, could that skateboarder have done it? Of course. And were those sparks flying between them? Of course. Here we go... another delusional romance. At least this guy made Ivy realize the error of her ways and helped her to decide to become a true street artist.

Annie tried to decide what to do with her life and her millions. Castillo Bay Charity to the rescue. Loved the line about Ivy's photo frames matching the towels in some rich person's bathroom. After getting ambushed by a reporter, Annie found out Hilllingsbrook Industries screwed her. And like we couldn't figure out the bartender was the Hillingsbrook prick that did it.

But the best was saved for last. Jen and Jacques are back! I was actually happy to see them again. The recent cast additions have been lame at best, so it was a relief to have Naomi's thorn-in-her-side back from gay Paris. S'up bitch indeed!

NOTE: 90210 is off the air until March 6. Get a look at what's to come in this preview.

@Allison He said he was turning 29 AGAIN. Meaning he's faking his age and throwing a 29th birthday for the second, or third, fourth time.

Did anyone else catch Mitchell Nash saying he was turning 29 and naomi could throw his party? But he has a 16 year old daughter... meaning he fathered her at age 13... yeah.

OMG Boooooring!
I dont know who is the most boring person. Annie? Silver? Navid? The only two guys worth watching are Liam (yummy!) and Naomi (girl power!).
And what was that "sexy" outfit Adrianna? And then hiding behind TRANSPARENT curtains? Navid has seen u naked before, u know?
No more episodes until March :( let's hope they use that break to come up with some spicy new storylines. I do not want to see just boring rich people!
Bring Ethan back!!!

Everything was predictable. At least Naomi is worth watching.

Was I the only one who hated that skateboarder guy? He seemed like such a self-righteous pr!ck to me!! And I also thought it was strange that someone like Nick Zano would play such a small role on 90210. funny how he was also on melrose place...

What's up with no new episodes until March? I don't get this scheduling... 90201 seems stalled... the story lines are annyoing most of the time, Liam and the new weird girl, is weird... Annie is stalled, and now Navid is gone? I like how Naomi is developing... good for her, but the sister being back with the baby... oh no, here we go... 90201 is losing me, I don't know how much longer I will watch this one...

Was I the only one who thought that when Liam went to Naomi for advice on the Vanessa party that it was going to turn out differently than it did? Especially after he filled her in on how she was willing to jack all of his money from the drawer. I honestly thought that when Liam & Naomi showed up at the bar, that Naomi was there to sort of "spy" on Vanessa. And when Naomi started throwing around lavishly expensive party ideas, I thought she was doing it to see how willing Vanessa was to spend all of Liam's modeling money. If Liam REALLY trusts this girl then he is going to go broke fast. I could see wanting to make his bar a success but as his girlfriend and the fact that she was using all of his money and none of her own, she should have asked him how much she could spend on the reopening especially after she saw how upset he got about her taking the money from the drawer. What a gold digger!!!

Garret from pretty little liars on 90210? weird :S

I really liked Naomi in this episode! However why is her sister back!?!?
So Nick Zano will be Annie's new love interest. I knew he was the millionaire even before he served her the drink. Speaking of which every week it bugs me that they all drink at Liam's bar...seriously his bar would be shut down and he would be in jail for serving minors....
I liked the Annie and Liam scene...lets hope they get back together

Now on to my comments about the episode. I liked it!
I do not like Vanessa and I am going to say that she is just using Liam when she hit him and saw who he was she knew he would have lots of money or at least have the potential to make tons of money. If he was just a bar owner she would have hit and ran. So I bet that once Liam becomes a huge star she will take all his money and leave town.
I having Ade back with the group, the scene with her and Silver giving eachother advice about the men in their lives, was very sweet. Looks like the other is okay with them dating their exes. There has been no word of Michael Steeger leaving so I am sure he will not go to Princeton. I for one like Silver and Navid and now with Ade giving support I think they will get back together
I am not sure what to think of graffiti guy...it seems like we have replaced one annoying character (Austin) with annoying graffiti guy so will have to wait and see
