90210 Review: A Fresh Start

by at . Comments

After finally getting some answers on "You Can't Win 'Em All", 90210 left us off with another huge cliffhanger the week before it says goodbye.

Considering "Scandal Royale" was the penultimate episode of 90210, the writers did have to go out with a bang. And a bang it was, literally. Adrianna is trapped on stage in a broken set that is about to burst into flames. Navid is backstage trying to get to her and Dixon is still in the theater.

Annie's Confused

Meanwhile, Silver was undergoing an MRI after hearing bouts of bad news. Her doctor informed her that her last tests didn't go well and were cause for high concern. Then we found out that Michaela lost the baby. At her last check-up there was no heartbeat. For as annoying as some people may have found Silver this season, anyone would admit that the girl is having a really hard time right now. Even though they reunited under bad circumstances, I'm glad that Silver has Teddy.

Since Michaela obviously wasn't up to to performing her song, she told Dixon that Adrianna was the one who really wrote it. It's sad that everyone was wiling to assume the worst of Adrianna, specifically Navid after their two days of passionate making up. Can we just pause to say: HOT!!!

Silver [to Adrianna]: I should’ve known, where there’s smoke, there’s you. | permalink

Well, as it turns out, the girl who inspired the name for Unfaithful Records will now be the one to save its butt. That is if she can get off stage safely, which judging by previews she will. After all the drama and fighting between them, there is only one episode left for Silver and Ade to make amends. At least the Navianna shippers can get their happy ending! It looks like after this latest episode that Lannie shippers might have a hope after all.

Liam lied about finding Old Salty because he wasn't quite ready to take the plunge and head to Australia with "Syd." Sorry, but I still don't trust her! Annie made it pretty clear she was waiting to hear more from Liam. She also made it clear she wasn't into him and Sydney as a couple. 

Lastly, we have Naomi who took the fall for Jordan's sister in order for Jordan to regain his freedom from his mother. Naomi is a crafty one. I don't think Miss High and Mighty Judge knew what she was up against. Naomi also isn't afraid of a challenge. I wonder if after this latest incident, she and Jordan will be able to rekindle their relationship. It seems like his family with always be an obstacle.

Everyone was all about getting a fresh start, but how is that possible when so much of the past is still an important part of the present?

Well, 90210 fans...the time has come. Next week is the final episode in the uber-famous zipcode with our fancy friends. What are your hopes and predictions going into the series finale, teased here?

Mrs.Alex o' loughlin I am a fan of liam and Annie too and I think maybe the engagement ring to Annie could be in that bag because it says liam and Annie will be engaged by the end of the episode I can't wait to actually see it I will be so happy.

GG left, if 90210 is leaving too... all i got left is TVD, PLL, and ARROW and Game of Thrones :( they're all very dark! (I'm not into too much comedy so all i had was GG and 90210 cheer me up)
But i love how this is ending with a real bang! Im guessing all is going to end well for everyone, they owe it to the fans.

I loved Adriannas song,Liam realizing he still loves Annie(could tell by the way he looked at the ring after talking to Salty).I feel bad for Silver,she lost her baby and might have cancer but I feel like the writers did that to get viewers to like her/feel sorry for her/redeem her, but shes still my least favorite chacter though I am sad theyre ending the series with such sad and heavy stoylines for her.Im upset fans arent getting a poper series finale cause the ending was tweaked but it was rushed and wasnt a planned series finale so all the story arcs were written aleading to a season finale.

90210 they could have given us a HALF season 6 just like with Gossip Girl so that we, the fans, could get a proper goodbye! But that's the problem, they don't give a shit about the fans of their shows. I just want to cry because it can't be true that 90210 won't be returning this fall. Now I don't have ANYTHING to watch on tv. I mean Pretty Little Liars is okay but it's not the same thing as Gossip Girl or 90210, these two shows are light, happy, filled with amazing characters who party, hook up, travel and go trough drama. Pretty Little Liars is just a dark and mysterious show that is getting boring since we never find out who A is. Anyway, I am having a meltdown since 90210 is having their last episode EVER next week. BTW did you guys hear about Matt Lanter who plays Liam Court in 90210, he is going to be the lead male character in CW's show oxygen next fall. I can't look at him without seeing Liam in him so I won't be watching that show. I want new shows about rich kids in USA like Gossip Girl or 90210 because now there will be no more of these so too make all the teens want to fallow them the CW needs to make a show about teens in USA, like Gossip GIrl or 90210 as I said, and they better make it ASAP!!! Wow this got long... but I'm really sad that 90210 is going to be over forever after next week.

This sucks! I'm so mad at the cw right now. I mean come on? First Gossip Girl and now you're going to take away 90210? FU! I can't believe it. I feel bad for the writers and the cast because they were all prepared to make a season 6, they had to change the ending because they wrote it as a season finale and NOT series finale. How can they tie up everything in one episode? It is impossible! Ugh I'm so mad, I love 90210 and HATE the CW for doing this. They only have bad shows that no one watches now. I mean supernatural? Heart of Dixie? Arrow? WTF are they still on and amazing shows as Gossip Girl and 90210 are getting cancelled? I can't understand why? If you look all around the internet (twitter, fb, spoilertv, fan pop and all other sites) you can see that people are very upset and especially when the producers promised us a season 6 in february. CW are not going to have people who watch their shows since the good ones are getting cancelled!! I REALLY think that if CW wanted to cancel 90210 they could have given us a HALF season 6 just like with Gossip Girl so that we, the fans, could get a proper goodbye! But that's the problem, they don't give a shit about the fans of their shows. I just want to cry because it can't be true that 90210 won't be returning this fall.

I am a huge Gossip Girl fan, huge, I watch 90210 as my 16 son watches it and I used to watch the original when I was a teen. With that being said, here are my thoughts: I do not like Teddy for what he did to Silver, making her hire a surrogate. He was in DC, how much of a dad could he have really been? I hope Silver is pregs with Marks baby and I hope they do a FF that shows her happily married with a baby. Funny how they made Silver go through this and they didn't Kelly. I feel Liam and Annie are the Chuck and Blair of 90210, without all the excitement. They will be endgame. Hope in 5 years they are married with a little Liam running around. Annie herself, I cannot stand her. Navid & Ade-they are also endgame and they are the Dan and Serena, high school love that reconnects. Unlike GG where Chuck and Blair were my favorite, Navid & Ade are my fav on this show. Obvi I want them to be happy. Naomi-I have no words for her, she is a piece of work man. Dixon-he just annoys me. I find it odd there are no sneak peaks for the finale as there was for GG. I was dying by the end of GG, this show its just kind of like finally, its over. Seems like TV Fanatic is too, they were all about the GG finale. Thanks to them, I had some sanity left, had to make sure my Chair got married in the end. And I am almost certain there will be a flash forward, I heard CW always does it-One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl

Still laughing at the fact that this show was canceled just as it was getting better with writing and character development. Too little too late for 90210. I really hope the writers can give us the best possible series finale possible!
As for the episode itself, nothing but pure sadness for Silver. All I've got really.
