90210: Girl Fight!
Overall, this week’s episode of 90210 was a bit more upbeat than last week. We got plenty of exciting eye candy, including a girl fight, car sex and more shirtless Liam. We did miss seeing Navid, but it did give plenty of room for the Ade/Gia plot line to move along.
Jasper proved himself to be more of a creep than ever. His little violent outbursts are getting a bit tiresome as is the unbalanced-don’t-know-what-he-might-do next vibe. We’re equally annoyed with how little remorse Annie is showing. Sure, Jasper is a dubious, blackmailing drug dealer, but SHE KILLED HIS UNCLE AND RAN AWAY. There’s a pretty big canyon of difference there.
In any case, he allows Annie to break up with him, in the end, citing that if they’re meant to be together she’ll come back. One point to note: You’re not allowed to stalk the object of your affection after “letting them go,” Jasper. Kind of defeats the point.
Let’s take a look at what other soapy drama got lathered up last night.
But first, a poll!
Dixon kicked things off on the same shifty foot as last week. He was fully ready to reap the benefits of confessing his feelings for Silver. Too bad there were are benefits because Silver shoots him down. Despite his backhand dealings with Silver and Teddy, we actually felt sorry for the guy. Maybe he’s just very good at pouting. In any case we were very proud when he told Teddy what he did. True, his offer to let Teddy punch him was a bit of an empty gesture (did you see his face when Teddy actually did it?? Classic), but at least he had the chutzpah to come clean.
Plus, his birth mother is back. The clever folks over at The CW made sure to keep that little surprise for the end of the episode, so not many reveals with that one.
Naomi, Ivy and Liam
GIIIRRRLLL FIIIIIGGGHHHTT!! This was a shamelessly plugged cheap thrill that actually delivered this time, unlike certain collegiate threesomes. There was plenty of screaming and the brawl was pretty believable. Ivy said it herself, Naomi was “pretty scrappy.” But let’s backpedal; what brought on the rumble?
Sensing that her lukewarm relationship with Liam was about to sputter out, Naomi went to Ivy for advice. When she sees how comfortable Ivy and Liam are around each other, she suggests the three of them hang out. Sensing an in to put the kibosh on the romance, Ivy agrees and takes the two on a hike. About halfway up a mountain and covered in mud and river sludge, Naomi figures out that Ivy isn’t the friend she thinks she is, and lets Ivy know in a few choice words. Things escalate, and before you know it the surfer chick and poor little rich girl are going toe to toe and nails to face on the beach.
Luckily for Naomi, this little bitch-fest is just the thing to get Liam interested again. Turns out Naomi standing up for herself is just what he missed about their relationship. We’re sure rolling around the beach in a bikini with another blonde had nothing to do with it.
Adrianna and Gia
The two AA mates are getting closer as they bond over their exes, but it’s made fairly obvious that Gia wants more than friendship. Her ex, Alexis, comes back into the picture and tells Gia she was wrong to break up with her and wants to get back together. So it’s true; sometimes a woman in a relationship can be wrong. Gia turns her down, and the next time we see her she’s snuggled up next to an oblivious Ade watching Love Story. Looks like Gia might be in for more heartbreak.
Silver and Teddy
We love these two. Out of all the pairings and re-pairings they are probably the most adorable. Maybe because they’re the most mature. Or we just really like Silver’s haircut. But we digress.
After Dixon told his mate that he let Silver believe Teddy’s sister was a lust interest, Teddy went straight back to Silver. She wasn’t having it at first, noting that he was with too many girls after she rejected him and couldn’t have been that broken up about her. However, Silver decides to take a chance on Teddy after some sage advice from…Naomi? Alright, whatever. Stranger things have happened.
Quotes and other points to note:
Does everything have to be abbreviated now? We know these kids lead busy lives, but LGD and LSD is just absurd. Unless you’re talking about Lake Shore Drive. Or drugs.
Who fist-bumps after a French-fry fight? Congrats for launching a fried spud sliver at my head?
Why is Silver curling her hair like that? Girl. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Didn’t Naomi on the hike remind you of Meredith in Parent Trap? All that was needed was a lizard on her noggin.
What is up with the Mr. Matthews/Ivy’s mom story line? We get that Ryan is bummed, but did they really need to bring in a student’s mom? At least we got some car sex out of it.
Naomi – boys don’t like shiny things. That’s just you.
Ade: He could get expelled
Silver: Or expunged
Naomi: Oh my god, what’s that, like, death by sponge?
Naomi: In exchange, I’ll give you some fabulous fashion tips. First of all, you should burn that t-shirt…
Naomi: I love the outdoors. All the rocks, dirt, a chance to wear khaki!
Naomi: I HATE NATURE, I HATE IT!
Ivy’s mom: I’m guessing you either got dumped or your indie rock band just broke up.
Ivy: It was actually kind of a draw. She’s really scrappy…
Ivy’s mom: Mick Jagger was an idiot, too. Why he chose Jerry Hall, we’ll never know.
