90210 Review: The Hollywood Bowl and The Hot Smart Chick

by at . Comments

Dixon's got "99 Problems" but being engaged to a cheater ain't one! 

Sorry, I just couldn't resist a Jay Z introduction with an episode title like that. Yes, it was the 99th episode of 90210 and it laid a lot of groundwork for next week's milestone 100th installment. The outing also included a bevy of guest stars, including Amber Stevens, Natalie Morales and a performance by Ne-Yo.

Will Adrianna Come Clean?

There was a lot of deception going on this week. For starters, this whole Ade and Dixon relationship. Do you think Ade should've been honest? Doesn't Dixon deserve to know that he's still living with a cheater, especially when he's about to make their relationship into a business arrangement as well? Truly, I think Adrianna needs to come clean simply because it's the right thing to do. 

Hey, guess what, guys?! Neil Lane is doing a holiday collaboration with Kay Jewelers! I mean, 90210 has a billion guest stars and is fairly popular, did they need the beyond obvious holiday sponsorship? That ad was just too much! I'm sorry, but Neil Lane designed the rings of Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and Kate Beckinsale, he isn't gonna pop by your friend's Beverly Hills mansion to sell you a pair of earrings from his Kay collection. They're pretty... but no.

Also, I'm supposed to believe that Liam would remember important information from a fertility specialist, but he wouldn't bother to call the studio to make sure his new "bodyguard" was actually not just some crazy fan? C'mon Liam, you should know better by now. You can be hot and smart, just ask Max's new partner Bryce! Amber Stevens from my beloved Greek, (I miss that show) began her stint as a guest star and Max's new business partner. Naomi better get her jealousy in check.

I just want to say that Annalynne McCord has been sexy since her arrival on our TV screens in Nip/Tuck. The show doesn't need to try so hard to make her alluring by prancing her around in lingerie and leather trench coats. She already exudes that appeal and is hilarious and vivacious.

Lest you think I am only here to criticize, let me just saw bravo to the writers for giving Navid a week off. Nobody wants to hang out with him right now, not even the audience! As for my favorite storyline? Riley and Annie really sold it to me in this episode. My favorite scene took place by the pool when Riley asked what she would do to any guy who stood her up and she landed that slap! 

Even better was when Riley pulled her into the pool. Hey sexy time! There's nothing hotter than a pool hook up. You all remember the Dylan and Kelly scene from the original 90210 right? If not go YouTube it.

I'm digging Riley and Annie if they can keep their fighting in check. I know with them it seems like foreplay, so hopefully it won't take over the actually enjoyable times between the two.

What did everyone think of the episode? What'd you think of Adrianna's performance? Is Liam's bodyguard even a bodyguard at all? Are you excited for the 100th episode next week? Hit the comments!

But then it kind of already did...i.e. Naomi never got to take off her trench coat.
Liam-He should of made his 'NO' mean 'NO'. Instead miss LAPD from god knows where shows up w/o a heads up from his 'people' claiming to be sent to 'protect' him. Liam, honestly, you could clobber this woman! So I'm sensing Vanessa is NOT gone, and right now, I'm not buying that it was the photographer who sent the 'I KNOW WHAT U DID' note. Liam better watch his back around his 'body guard'. Is she afraid he'll go missing and instead of handing out flyers she can say "LOOK AT MY TATTOO, THATS WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE...TO THE T!" LoL. That was just me being sarcastic.
Silver-Girl is never ever getting preggers. Well she could 'get lucky' if my eyes didn't decieve me on that promo for next week. It was a little fast, but I'm pretty sure she was preying on gay baby daddy Teddy. Oh and she has another health issue that prevents her from insemination...i think...i wasn't really paying attention at that moment. I have to rewatch the episode.
Annie-She must have went shopping, because her outfits were so good in this episode. she wasn't dressed as a sunflower today...Thank Goodness!Currently, Annie and Riley are the best thing to watch on this show. The slap was awesome, and the pool scene was cute. They remind me of Lannie...and speaking of Lannie...woohoo, got a scene.
Navid-who? not in this episode, and I'm glad. If he was, the episode would have been too messy and it would be called 9999999999 problems with Navid.

This was a great episode. Definately worth the watch, and not only for Ne-Yo.
Ade-Wow, she is kicking karma's ass! I mean she's cheating on her boyfriend, thinks he's proposing, and still doensn't give him the 411. And she gets rewarded by performing at Hollywood Bowl, getting an expensive piece of jewerly from Dixon, a free ride onto his new music business, and sex with Dix at the end. Things are going to blow up in her face when the truth is revealed...if that ever happens...but I'm sure it will!
Dixon-Poor guy. Always getting the short end of the stick. At least he doesn't have to go through surgery (even though I was hoping he would). Glad his new meds work :)
Naomi-Lingerie scene, AGAIN. Oh well, it's her go-to thing. I think it coins the term Naomi Clark. Excuse me, I mean Naomi Miller-Clark. Seriously? I think that line is a bit overused now. Naomi gets Jealous. Another third wheel. I hope Bryce's purpose is to NOT cause a rift between Naomi and Max. But then it kind of already did...i.e. Naomi never got to take off her trench coat.
Liam-He should of made his 'NO' mean 'NO'. Instead miss LAPD from god knows where shows up w/o a heads up from his 'people' claiming to be sent to 'protect' him. Liam, honestly, you could clobber this woman! So I'm sensing Vanessa is NOT gone, and right now, I'm not buying that it was the photographer who sent the 'I KNOW WHAT U DID' note.

After a week dodging questions about how my ass looks on youtube, a day at the fertility clinic sounds fun.
