90210 Review: Back At West Bev

by at . Comments

Well, it's been 100 episodes of the 2.0 version of America's hottest zipcode - and it's been quite a ride. In "902-100" we learned that as much as things change, sometimes they also stay the same. 

It was an episode chock full of guest stars, a few blasts from the past and the reveal of what happened to Vanessa... so buckle up!

Silver Strips!

First, could Silver have been any hotter in all her burlesque glory? I'm so proud she decided to get up on that stage, put her money where her mouth was and show Teddy that she too can overcome her own fears. She's been handling the cancer gene and baby stuff like a champ, but sometimes it's the smaller things that get under your skin. It was good for Silver to show Teddy that not everyone is as perfect and fearless as they appear.

What's the deal with Teddy? I feel like he really gave Shane the brush off in a bunch of ways. I felt bad that Shane had no clue about the baby thing, but we still forget how young they all are. Some people take years before they are ready for trusting serious commitments. At least they all acknowledged it had only been two years since they were in high school. It's hard to forget that they're still so young with all the marriages, hooker scandals, stalkers and sex tapes!

How did you all feel about seeing Jasper and cousin Emily again? Not gonna lie, when Annie locked eyes with Jasper I was scared for her. But it seems like he turned a corner and is a different person now. Do you buy it? Also has cousin Emily influenced Annie to become the new Carrie Bradshow, blogging voiceovers included? Well whether or not Annie's blog is a success, I have a really good vibe about a possible reunion with Liam.

Liam needs to be close to people he trusts. I'm so glad he confided in Annie and forgave Navid. Navid's apology seemed sincere so I'm glad he's returned from douche-ville. Who do you think is behind the threats to Liam? Obviously we now know that Vanessa is ALIVE (as we all predicted) but I don't think she's working alone. Could she be working with the bodyguard who gives me the creeps every time she's on screen? Don't forget that you can also catch Miss Arielle Kebbel in a role that I actually love her in, this Thursday on The Vampire Diaries.

Hands down, my favorite part of tonight was Naomi's apology.

Here I am, former bitch, asking for your forgiveness. Please don't let the message get lost because I'm physically perfect. | permalink

Despite her scheming ways and standard arrogance, she usually has a good intention behind things. I'm sorry Max lost his company, but he was most likely going to hire Bryce anyway. With Alec's return next week, it looks like a lot of the audience will get the confirmation that Alec was indeed in love with Max. I'm very interested to see how this played out.

Other Tidbits:

  • Dixon finding out about the affair was inevitable. "Unfaithful Records" Touche sir.
  • Silver and Teddy hitting tennis balls off the roof felt like old times.
  • Are we ever going to see Navid's bar mitzvah video?
  • Denise Richards did a perfect turn as a West Bev alumni who is in a snobby society.

What did you all think of the big 100th episode? Were you pleased? Who did you enjoy seeing the most/least? Hit the comments and prepare for the winter finale!

addixon! I think I'm not alone when I say Dixon should've died or disappear after S4! The worst written character, why is he so . . . . . . . !
Navid should've stayed Bad or in Princeton! I could get the bad Navid, the frustrated guy who lost everything or the one who went away!
Denise and Carmen! *.* Parts played great!
Naomi. . . No words. She was briliant! She is really the star of the show. I lol-ed so hard! I just hate she gets so many bumps on her way! Max lost everything and I would be so mad at N. But U have to love her!

I don't get why 90210 had to mess Ian's character so much. It was bad enough when they suddenly turned the sweet, funny character into a weird blackmailer,now Teddy blames him for not being able to trust Shane, when in the past episodes he had no such issues. -.-

Next wk's episode looked amazing

A really good episode! Deeper, not so juvenial, sincere. . .
Annie! Hmmmm she is a long time of a right way, and I can't believe there isn't a proper acting-theater school for her in LA. But I loved her connection with Liam. Emily I missed her she is real crazy! And the Jasper story was just creepy!
Liam and his story! I believe they written V of! She stud around till the police didn't knew about her. Now he has a stalker who saw him killing her!
Silver! She was the best character of S1 and S2 and went on a downroad in S3 and S4, now she is back and I believe her story

Cannot believe that this trash has survived 100 episodes.

It's hardly any of Shane's business with what Teddy has decided to do. Either way, I hope Silver gets her pregnancy by the spring finale.

I also feel confident for a Lannie reunion. I hope the writers step on it and put them together by mid-season. However, if they do what they did last year with the cliffhanger of Liam getting injured and Annie waiting for him and not putting them together, I'll be pissed off.
What happened to Max's company sucks, but it does open up his character more and will further develop is marriage with Naomi. These two are pure endgame and to ruin them now would just be too stupid.
Addixon's fate was not surprising, but Dixon resulting the way he did by keeping Adrianna contracted? Wow, is this going to end bad. Though the end of Addixon sucks, chances are that they'll be together again soon.
The fact that Navid is back sickens me. I don't like him when he's nice and I don't like him when he's bad. I just like it when he's not in an episode and the other characters hate him.
I'm sincerely pissed off a Shane for what he's obviously going to do to Teddy and Silver's baby business. It's hardly any of Shane's business with what Teddy has decided to do. Either way, I hope Silver gets her pregnancy by the spring finale.

My favorite part was LANNIE, hope it will continue. These two need to happen again ASAP.

90210 Season 5 Episode 8 Quotes

Dancing has been this great way of pretending I was this sexy powerful woman who wasn't afraid of anything. I just wish it were true.

Silver

Some things you can't forgive and forgot.

Liam [to Navid]
