90210 Review: Confronting the Past
Remember that time when Naomi and Annie found out they had a half brother in common? Don't worry, I almost didn't either, but luckily "Brother From Another Mother" triggered those memories.
Think back to 90210 season 1 when the big secret was that Naomi's mom slept with Annie and Dixon's dad. The result was a child given up for adoption who was a few years older. I know, the writers must really have been digging to drag a storyline back from a few years ago.
Oh, hey, Wolfgang!
So Naomi, being the persistently proactive doer that she is, goes out and tracks down their half brother Mark. Annie feels blindsided. Dixon isn't affected much at all and sees how Naomi would want to find him. Maybe it's because Dixon knows that he always has Annie to lean on. Cue to collective "awww!"
Naomi is lonely and after what she's been through I don't blame her. That moment with Naomi's mother a few weeks ago was almost tear-inducing. Her family has always been a complete absence in her life and she's going through a divorce at the ripe old age of 20. No relationships are permanent and I don't blame her for looking for her lost sibling.
I just wanted someone to share a bond with me that we couldn't walk away from. | permalink
I also don't blame Mark for not being immediately receptive. Naomi lied under the pretense of getting him there. Then she sabotaged his competition at the food truck contest. Naomi has GOT to stop inserting herself in everyone else's business. She uses her money to control everything around her and it still hasn't gotten through her thick head that it pisses people off! Especially her loved ones who are trying to live their own lives!
Luckily Annie's level headedness was able to bring Mark back into their lives. Now Mark and Naomi are opening a new restaurant. Ade and Silver who both want fun projects are taking over his old truck for a TBD project. Liam bought the place under The Offshore that Ashley was using in order to confront his past and start getting over his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Everyone is starting new projects, which makes for the possibility of exciting future episodes of 90210!
Even Dixon might have a new artist on his hands. He will, however, have to get in line between Silver and Navid for her attention. McKayla has managed to capture of the attention of several people in the Beverly Hills crew. First and foremost her commitment is to be Silver's and Teddy's surrogate.
What will happen with McKayla's relationship with Navid? Will Dixon's ability to potentially make her a star cause her to blow off Silver? Hit the comments!
Also a note for all you Lannie shippers: Get ready for next week!
