90210 Review: Picking Up The Pieces

by at . Comments

Last we left the crew in Beverly Hills, Naomi was crashing a wedding, Silver asked Teddy to be her baby daddy, Adrianna took off for a gig in Vegas and Dixon got into a potentially fatal car accident. Well, "Til Death Do Us Part" caught us up on all of that and more.

Let's start with the biggest cliffhanger of all: Dixon.

Gathering Around Dixon

As you can tell by the above photo, he did survive, but just by a hair. After a wild goose chase that sent Annie, Silver and the boys to the morgue, they finally found out that Dixon was the only survivor and in critical condition.

Considering the aforementioned photo was officially released by The CW before the premiere, was it necessary to include the whole morgue situation? C'mon, writers, you made Annie a hooker who almost got a priest to abandon his path, can you give her storyline a mild breather?! Shenae Grimes would appreciate it.

It's too bad Ade didn't find out sooner what had happened and instead hopped into bed with the first guy she saw. There was obviously no way she could've possibly known. She thought her boyfriend had just up and ditched her, so it's understandable what she did, but you know the guilt is going to haunt her; Especially now that her one night stand, the sexy Wes Brown, has made his way into town. He's also gotten himself into a potential business deal with Navid!

The rebuilding of Liam's bar, with Navid on board, will definitely be helpful in keeping their minds occupied now that Teddy has agreed to be Silver's baby daddy. I loved her line about Teddy not having to be just "sperm and Christmas cards." It was a heavy episode and Naomi can't carry all the humor by herself. For more quips from tonight, hit our 90210 quotes section.

Speaking of Naomi, she got her man, but it doesn't look like it's going to be wedded bliss with his business partner Alec in the picture. Alec seemed a little stalkerish to me. Did anyone else get that vibe? Obviously the guy just called off his wedding, maybe he's not gonna pick up the phone. He didn't have a warrant to search Naomi's house. Besides, Max hurt Naomi in the past as well. Breakups are rarely one-sided.

It was so nice to see Debbie since she's been a bit of an absentee parent lately. Let's see... am I forgetting any of the major players? Ivy is in Mexico and we won't be seeing Austin for a little while but I think that about catches us up! That psycho Vanessa is back and she's definitely going to blackmail Liam about burning his bar down for insurance money. it's funny how you can love a character on one show and hate them on another. I was a big fan of Arielle Kebbel as Lexi on The Vampire Diaries. On 90210? Not so much.

What did you all think of the 90210 premiere? Hit the comments!

All I care about is Lannie, this is only couple with chemistry on this show.

This show is just not the same anymore. The first two season were so good, the relationships had spark and the story lines made sense and now all we have is out of the blue weddings, ridiculous accidents and a whole lotta bad acting! I mean the writers have actually managed to make my favorite characters the most unlikeable characters on tv: Liam from bad ass to irrelevant loser and Naomi from fabulous to married to Max Miller! I loved the original couples in the show, they need to bring Liam and Naomi and Navid and Adrianna back!

OMG this show has literally become a joke.

I really liked this episode! Yes it was the worst kept secret that Dixon was alive! However it was really good acting on Shenae and Jessica's parts at the morgue!
I can not stand Vannessa, it will be a tough ride for Liam for awhile but in the end Vannessa will get what is coming to her.
I like the idea of Teddy and Silver having a baby! Plus a season full of Trevor Donovan...SWEET!
So I think Annie's new love interest is the doctor we saw for a brief moment on the premiere!
Alec is a creep and I hope he goes away fast.
Looking forward to this season!

It was a nice premiere for the show's standards. I was satisfied through the hour,unlike GG where i wanted to kill myself through 42min! For now. i say i'm all in for Naomi and Max- and the Alec partner guy.
I also enjoyed the way the triangle Navid-Silver-Liam was handled by ending it or rather pausing it. I cherish Ted's return and baby-to come with Silver~! I kind of i'd like to see them together-but it won't happen i know it. Annie's acting skills were great-glad Dixon is alive but not happy for his ship with Ade. New guy in Vegas- HOT! Keep him! As for Liam i ve had it with his SL- get rid of that crazy bitch-give him sth decent to go on.

JUST PUT DIXON AND SILVER BACK TOGETHER.

Super super loved the premiere. Got me tear-jerked again courtesy of Shenae Grimes. I'm hoping Hot Mama Wilson stays put in Beverly Hills for a short while.

Though I agree that it was unrealistic that Dixon survived the accident, I'd prefer for him to be alive seeing as he's actually one character that is at least consistent. Also, I think people are forgetting that this IS a drama and realistically a drama does do things like this to keep viewers interested and realistically they would make a 'sole survivor' thing happen for a character such as Dixon to live and open up a fresh storyline for him.

I don't know about anyone else, but that slight Lannie scene kinda gave me hope for the future episodes. Fingers crossed for the return of Lannie!

This show has seen far more better days if you ask me. This episode lacked in anything exciting, the whole Dixon was the only survivor in that car accident that really should have killed them all was way too far fetched, and the fact that he's going to be 'paralysed' for only a couple of episodes will also be ridiculous. Naomi has suddenly become the shows comedy relief which while Anna Lynn Mccord is good at portraying, its all becoming a little dull for me. I say bring back the days when Annie and Liam or Dixon and Silver were together!
