90210 Review: Anger Management

by at .

After all the fighting on last week's episode of 90210, the tension was still pretty thick in this on "#realness," as Naomi and Max attempted to say goodbye to their marriage when they hosted one last charity event together.

Part of this event was a celebrity football game, so naturally Naomi asked Liam to participate. Liam actually did a great job and we're pretty lucky that he didn't start a fight on the field.

Adrianna's Dilemma

I was actually expecting some hardcore and possibly violent athleticism when Liam suggested to guest star Terrell Owens that they give the fans a real show. It's not a good thing that I automatically assumed Liam meant he wanted the game to get really physical, as opposed to meaning he wanted to show off his skill for the movie exec who was there. Liam probably would've taken the deal, even after his panic attack, until she guaranteed he would skyrocket to fame.

There are a lot of unresolved issues on this show right now, but Liam's anxiety and anger over being kidnapped probably being number-one.

I get it, I was there too. I got shot, remember? | permalink

You'd think Annie might be the one with the bigger issue since she took a bullet from that nut job but somehow she is doing just fine. And, oh yeah, her boyfriend just dropped dead last week. Is she on happy pills or something? How is Annie functioning? I simply do not get it. She's actually signing an anonymous book deal where she's being sold as the next EL James and "Fifty Shades of Grey." This is lofty yet intriguing. 

Annie didn't have all that much experience as an escort, she did it for what a few months? And didn't she only ever sleep with Patrick? How is she supposed to write a whole book out of that? Given all that we know about CW dramas, Annie should realize that nothing ever stays anonymous. Just ask Dan Humphrey. Besides, once the people who do know Annie's secret read the book, one of them is bound to slip... right?

Speaking of things that won't be kept a secret, Navid hooked up with Shane's sister! The same sister that is now likely going to be the surrogate for Teddy and Silver. I'm really glad we're seeing some sort of agreement and resolution in this whole Silver/Teddy feud because it was getting a bit tiresome. The same goes for Adrianna and Dixon's fight over her contract.

That performance was just awful, yikes! I felt bad for both Adrianna and Dixon in that moment. Maybe there's a lesson to be learned here about mixing business with pleasure. Look at Naomi and Max. She got involved in his business affairs and it sank their marriage faster than the Titanic. They thought because they were having a "mutual friendly separation" that they could have a night of sex and host one last event together? Unfortunately that's just not the way it goes.

It seems they have finally gotten their closure, however, and next week it looks like Naomi may even get a new love interest! What did you think of the latest episode of 90210? Are you worried about Liam? Will McKayla end up being the surrogate? Hit the comments!

    I clearly don't know what to say. Max and Naomi breaking up is making me very sad, and angry with the writers (the were a great couple together). I also hate the writers for destroying Silver and Teddy's special relationship. They were really honest to each other, great friends. I think that i really like Silver this season! Dixon-Ade's storyline is shit, and Liam's too, oh and Annie's too. I just miss 90210's third season

    The sad thing about this show actually getting better is that the fans haven't followed it to the new time slot. I'm really going to take in the next 9 episodes, because they could very well be the last.

    ...chemistry between himself and Michaela. (Not the Maxomi chemistry, that just evaporated, like it didn't exist.)
    Silver and Teddy. When will this baby storyline find a resolution!? Silver needs to either forget about being a mama or just go with the surrogate.
    Apparently Adrianna is tired of Dixon's 'big baby face'. And she made that clear when she became a shoplifting, opera singing, strip queen. Dixon doesn't mind the shoplifting, but he couldn't handle the latter two. All in all, you can't fit a square into a circle.
    It was not really an intriguing episode, but still worth the watch.

    Maxomi, their whole marriage seems like a waste. At first, Max left Madison during their wedding to tell Naomi he loves her. Then, along comes Alec (remember him?) and he throws work in Max's face. Max gets involved, Naomimis sex deprived, and eventually wants more time with Max, so she buds into his work. Max does not 'likey'. Arguments and disagreements arise and than divorce. Such a waste.
    Liam is so paranoid. It's nice to see that he didn't magically recover *cough* like Annie *cough*. I'm glad he is getting the opportunity to be badass with fight club. BTW, how is Annie supposed to see that 'stalker/Amanda's lapdog' outside when there's a wall of shrubbery blocking the view? (90210 questions that will never be answered).
    Annie, her boyfriend is dead, she got shot recently, and now she's shopping. This girl is almost emotionless, it would seem. However, I liked that angstrom conversation that went down between Liam and Annie.
    Navid, I actually enjoyed watching the chemistry between himself no Michaela. (Not the Maxomi chemistry, that just evaporated, like it didn't exist.)

    To Spindae 2.0:
    really, deep and honest? hahahahahahaha two words I would NE-VER use to describe this show. HAHAHA gave me a good laugh at least

    Sarah-silva

    not get it 100%
    I am sure it was obvious McKayla was Shane's sister but it was not to me.

    I will break it down by characters.
    All in all this was a pretty good epiosde. With a couple exceptions.
    Liam: I am not thrilled with the direction they are taking his character, yes he was kidnapped, however he was also thrown from his motorcycle and recovered way faster! I really hope he finds a way to get over the kidnapping and anger SOON!
    Annie: she is doing way better than Liam and she got shot and lost her boyfriend in a short amount of time! I wish she did not want to be anonymous with her book deal but I guess she was looking out for Dixon.
    Dixon: the guy can not get a break.
    Adrianna: she is acting annoying with the whole record deal thing and she screwed herself over with that performance.
    Naomi/Max: I really liked them together and I am sad that they broke up again.
    Silver/Teddy: It is nice to see them talking and not fighting, however I was a little confused as the actual reason Teddy did not want Silver carrying their child, I know he gave her a reason but I did not know 100% what it was.
    I am sure it was obvious that McKayla was Shane's sister, but it was not to me.

    The surrogate situation is stupid. Just put Silver/Dixon back together, because every time Nilver has a storyline, they drop the ball.

    Having Maxomi divorce is even dumber. They should've fought more for their marriage. One counselling session is all it takes for them to give up completely? Makes no sense.

    I do like Liam's Fight Club storyline. We'll see where that goes.

    Whoaa! How easy it is to get married and divorced in this show. They make a marriage seems very little and unimportant in life. Poor maxomi. btw, I think Max is going to be a lecturer one day, he has potential lol. ;D

    so now Navid hooked up with Shane's sister who's going to be the surrogate for Teddy/Silver? what a small world.
