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.

So we have no new shows for 2 months then back for 3 and now off again for 3 weeks...So frustrating. Yes I know there are only 22 episodes a season but every year it seems like there are longer and longer breaks. It is really hard to stay excited for a show as much as I love the shows having them new for a 3 or 4 weeks then off for a month is maddening

Is there anyone who hates Annie as much as I do? She's a terrible annoying character who has seriously no potential. She's the worst actress... Almost as bas as Kristen Stewart.

The new kid Carla adds some spice to the mix. I hope she stays on.

Silver/Navid storyline! Greg from the begging was a rebound and I get why she thought to go back him! On the other hand Princeton YES! He leaves! YES! And eventually when he comes back they CHANGE ACTORS!
Big Arielle fan, from Gilmore days over to VD! And she plays the ambitious sweet GF very well! Glad she is there!
Ivy and her new guy! I liked him appearing and the whole message he was spreading! Art is alive!
Dixon and Ade's story real well done, a couple which works on their problems!

I miss the whole College experience the whole gang misses it and I hoped Naomi at least would have more troubles with it! On the other side I love the hilarious scenes they are pulling of with her!

Side note: Anyone else think it was odd that Carla "had just moved" to L.A., yet, she manages to have all of these 'friends' on Facebook (from her school) and they ALL know who Naomi Clark is?

I felt bad for Naomi this episode. She had a horrible childhood and this episode just had to have it all coming back. Seriously, I love her career path and how it's the main focus, but Jen coming in will just ruin it in my opinion. I just wish Ryan and Debbie could make a guest appearance this season, along with Jen. It would be good to see how they're going considering they weren't even IN the season finale last season.
As for Dixon and Adrianna, anyone else think she was just being rather melodramatic? I'm not a fan of her and Silver being so close already. It's fairly unbelievable. I would find it difficult to confide in someone like that so soon. I am also shocked on how they can tell each other to do things with both their exes. Bestfriends or not, it's rather odd.
Ivy... No idea where to start. She's just a failure. She gets into her knew 'hobbie' as a photographer and has now seemed to drop it in the span of 2 episodes. Go back to your bong.

I thought the episode was average.
Glad Navid "left". I hope he stays gone for a while. When he said he was leaving I fist pumped for joy.
As for Silver, for someone who is meant to be so independent, why is it that she constantly needs a man? I don't think there's been an episode where she can stay single or not talk about someone she can be with. I blame Annie for this one though.
In regards to Annie, why even bring up Navid to Silver? Stupid woman. Her 'storyline' was by far horrible. She has all this "money" so she decides to throw it at a charity in which she obviously hasn't researched? Idiot.
Himbo Liam is right. It's quite obvious that he's Vanessa's puppet. She says jump and he says how high? I knew that 'rescue' was staged the second Liam went to jump in. Vanessa is a worthy adversary for the show as a villian, but I am quite bored with her. I need action.
