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!

very good episode. 90210 is very consistent this season. It doesnt necessarily have the over the top drama that made it addicting in seasons 2 and 3. However the drama is still entertaining but more realistic and very character driven. I've never actually cared about all the characters at once until this season.

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]
