90210 Review: Desperate Housewives

by at . Comments

Last week's return of Jen Clark was underwhelming to say the least. Fortunately, it seemed as if the writers of 90210 read our minds on "Blood Is Thicker Than Mud" because the old Jen returned, more conniving than ever.

All it took to spark Jen's fire was a little unhealthy competition with little sis Naomi. We've always known Jen was a desperate sociopath, but I guess finding a new sugar daddy isn't just about little Jacques.

Dixon and Adrianna

Naomi really doesn't have any family in her life, so it makes sense that she continuously falls for Jen's apologies and excuses. Despite Jen sleeping with two of her past love interests, Naomi was ready to believe her sibling when she said she would give up Preston.

To be honest, I believed Jen too.... even though every single cell in my body was screaming not to. I should've gone with my gut and the same can be said for Naomi. It will be hard for Naomi to ever give up on Jen for good because, after all, Jen is her blood. But could Preston be the straw that broke the camel's back? Was he her soulmate of the week or could he have really been more?

I'm going to say probably not. If a guy is interested in you, he generally doesn't play you against your sister. Another super desperate girl on this show? Vanessa. I'm a fan of Arielle Kebel in real life and she kicked ass on The Vampire Diaries, but damn I just want to slap her on 90210!

Once a liar, always a liar. Liam was very understanding about the fresh start thing when confronted with her multiple driver's licenses, but Liam is also pretty trusting and naive at times. Why is she so hell bent on lying to him? She's obsessed with making him a star and he really doesn't even care that much. 

Elsewhere, Adrianna has done some crazy stuff in the past, we all know this. But it really pissed me off to see Vanessa play off of Ade's past mistakes, especially when we know how hard she's been trying to change this year. Don't get me wrong, swapping Silver's meds is still unforgivable, but Vanessa doesn't even know Adrianna. What girl would willingly slam her head through a mirror just to make an impact and keep up a lie? Damn! It looks like Silver might be her next victim after she sees how close she's been getting to Liam.

I hope Vanessa is outed for being the lunatic she is. In turn, I also hope Dixon takes the music contract. We all know he's going to since he has to take a hiatus from the show for the rest of the year. Dixon deserves his big break, though. Hopefully Adrianna will see that when he tells her.

Annie's storyilne was a snoozefest. But what else is new?

Ivy's new boyfriend is annoying and I can't stop thinking about the fact that he is Officer Garrett on Pretty Little Liars and possibly a murderer. It doesn't look like he will be in the picture once Ivy finds out that Raj lied to her and is still very sick. I always did like Raj.

So what did you guys think? Was this better compared to last week or would you rather just not see Jen? Will Silver get the test? Are we ever going to see the end of Vanessa? Hit the comments!

Silver has dated (at least it's going in that direction with Liam now) EVERY. SINGLE. MAIN. CHARACTER (male). Dixon? Yes. Teddy? Yes. Navid? Yes. There's not even one anymore! But that being said... I have always hated Silver and as of this episode I really like her. This disease (BC) she has to struggle with ever getting is something I know, so I sympathize. Though I can guarantee she won't have the gene, ha. I don't buy Naomi's "true love" either. He seems like an ass. In fact, I saw more with him and Annie. Annie will then have taken three of Naomi's guys! Ha! I did not know Ivy's new boytoy was Garrett! To me he looks just like Raj...

4)Silver spilled the beans to Liam of all people, but suprisingly enough I actually found it believable and they're cute AS FRIENDS!
5) Ade is tuning more and more in on skeezy Vanessa (I actually felt really bad for Ade, when V dumped all of Ade's mistakes from last year on her like that. She's grown so much since then.)
6) I was also fooled by Jen (the BIATCH is BACK, baby!) but I knew that it would be her to break Naomi's heart (so easy to figure out!)
So I laughed and I was even touched at times -Nice progress 90210! Keep it up! ;D

I was actually pleasently suprised after last week's bore of an episode. This one actually made some real progress:
1)Dixon was offered a record deal (take it, Dix -you deserve it!)
2) 2 girlfights (LOVED when Annie was pushed in the mud, btw)
3)Ivy and Street-guy was offered a buisness proposal and she became her girlfriend (not that I care AT ALL about this Raj-knock-off, but at least Ivy mentioned Raj in this ep. I'm so exited to see what happens next week!)

anyone know what the song is at the beginning just when naomi is talking about pj with the psychic and then there is an ocean shot and it goes to the beach bar?

Funny how it also bothered me to no end that Ivy's new guy is Garrett on PLL! Hahaha

nice episode. i mainly watch 90210 without giving serious attention just for the time to pass.... I love naomi she 's amazing & hilarious!!! I never liked Annie but currently is pretty likeable. I think Ade was better with navid anyway so i don't mind her upcoming break-up with dixon,who should really accept the contract. Liam is the one that never bores me to watch.- When was was a ''badass'' with naomi and later more cute with annie, his several career directions etc. I just hate Vanessa but i know that when she is outed, liam will date Silver so...I would love to see that also.. I think is the last possible combination, Liam has dated all girls (expect Ade) and Silver everyone(no exceptions), but i really like her.. she is very beautiful and very well built-up character so... why not?

i love this episode especially the jen-naomi mud wrestling. also, i really really love ivy and annie as friends. i mean they only have quite a few scenes together but i just love them.its like ivy and annie is always there for each other. i like silver and liam but please not as lovers. if that happens silver hooked up everyone except raj. anyways, i just wish they're like close friends sort of like silver and teddy friendship.

@Sofia. I think the same as you about Liam and Silver.

@K I'm not 100% certain but I do remember reading an interview where it said Navid was coming back.

Well for a change I actually like silver and liam! Somehow I found them nice since season 2 but writers never explored them as a couple!
