90210 Review: Anger Management

by at . Comments

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!

Nice to hear a Coldplay song in a 90210 episode. Haven't heard one in a while, like since Season 1's "We're Not in Kansas Anymore".

what the hell is wrong with show not one character can stay in a relationship. cw you know you can have a succsessful show if your characters can actually stay married it seems they have to break them up and then have them hook up with new characters to get viewers and sadly thats not happening because the ratings are low .

@Amy Lynn: I think he's going to hook up with another new character. I'm so sad that Max and Naomi broke up. I don't feel like I want to continue watching this show if they're not together anymore. :(

And wonder which girl he will be hooking up with next since they released earlier today he will sleep with someone close to him when Annie starts developing feelings for him. Isn't Ade the only one left who he hasn't slept with?

Annie's actions after Riley passing were ridiculous. She looks like she barely even shed a tear about it. Especially when he did the surgery for her. I'd expect some guilty feelings there. I knew that was Shane's sister right when they showed her with Navid after teddy mentioned her. I don't think she will work out if she's hooking up with Navid. Kinda seems like a conflict of interest. All I ask is please do not give us the predictable, overdone Navid and Shane's sister have sex so she doesn't know if the baby is hers or silver and Teddy's. that story has been done so many times before. But I know this show, and I have a very bad feeling they're going to pull that. Ade bugs me still most of the time. The max and Naomi scenes were pretty sad. I felt bad for her and don't want to see them break up. He brings out the best in her when he's not acting like a douche. Annie's blog story is boring. Liam's is interesting. I'm looking forward to see more about what happens with that. And wondering which girl he's going to hook up since they said someone close to him. Isn't Ade the only one left?
