90210: I'll be watching you...
Well, our little West Bev residents were bouncing around like energized atoms this week on 90210, weren’t they? Attractions, repulsions and multiple covert spying operations; it all made for some great TV watchin’. So let’s delve right in, shall we?
Dixon and Dana
Well, Dixon’s birth mother is back, and the Wilson house is in an uproar. Debbie is doing her best to hide that she’s threatened by Dana, Dixon is trying to connect with his mother, and we’re not quite sure what Dana wants at all. The first dinner at home doesn’t go very well and everyone is clearly feeling awkward. Annie comforts a disconcerted Dixon and tells him that it will just take some time to reconnect with his mother. Dixon and Dana go out the next night for dinner and end up finding common ground: basketball. However, Dana ends up putting bad ideas in Dixon’s head when she tells him she internet gambles to make the games more interesting. The next thing we know, Dixon is logging on to an internet bookie and lying about his age.
Oh, and did we mention the family car got stolen when he went surfing? Because it did. The police eventually found it in a chop-shop completely stripped down. Somehow we think this was not a random car-jacking.
Annie and Jasper
And the spiral of creepiness descends even further. While Annie is continuing to be a great sister to Dixon and giving him bang-up advice about his mother, Jasper is stalking like her like a pro – except for the part where Annie notices him. When Jasper tries to talk to Annie at school she tells him to back off, clearly terrified. Jasper counters by telling her he’s only protecting her… which is exactly why he stole the family car. The reason it was stripped down was to get rid of all the evidence of Annie hitting his uncle, so she could never get in trouble. Because that’s what true love is; being an accessory to homicide.
Silver and Teddy
The newest couple at West Bev is off to a rocky start this week. Out for dinner, poor Silver encounters four women Teddy’s potentially been with including the waitress, whom Teddy doesn’t even fully remember. When Silver confesses her problems to Naomi, her best friend only makes her feel less secure and suggests that Silver go through Teddy’s phone and email. She doesn’t go quite that far, but gets a peek at his email and doesn’t like what she sees: a message from an old flame looking to meet up at a local coffee shop.
So what’s a girl to do when her ex-player new boyfriend is enticed by his steamy past? According to Naomi, you spy on him. The two schemers enlist Gia as a spy to see if Teddy will take the e-bait. Teddy shows up to the coffee shop, but turns his fellow hedonist down. Gia reports back to Silver, who’s relieved that her new beaux is on the straight and narrow, but now is racked with her own guilt. She decides to confess what she did to Teddy and tells him that she can trust him now. Only one problem; now he doesn’t trust her.
Navid and Lila
Not too much to report here, other than Navid is called out by his pals for holding on to feelings for Adrianna. Looking to prove them wrong, his asks his star reporter Lila out on a date to West Bev's favorite beach restaurant (We guess? It seems like these kids are always noshing here). Things go really well and the two arrange for another date, but a little more on that later.
Ade and Gia
It seems that Ade is the last person in the world to know that Gia is into her, because the girl keeps prattling on about Navid to her new friend. Talk about ex-boyfriends is annoying enough when it crosses into excessive, but it's even worse when your confessor has a major crush on you. Whilst cruising around in Gia's boss VW van, Ade starts singing along with the radio and surprise! She's got a killer voice. Gia suggests that Ade should audition for a girl band in their neighborhood as a distraction from Navid, but Ade rejects the idea.
Later on, the two gal pals decide to take a stroll down the beach towards, you guessed it, the favorite beach restaurant. And who is on the bench kissing? Navid and Lila! Ade becomes extremely upset and starts chastising herself for not being able to see this coming. Auditions for the girl band are still going on, so Gia throws that back out as an option. Ade needs something to get Navid off her mind and agrees. She nails the audition and is immediately asked to join the band. Just one small problem: Lila is the basist.
The next day at school Ade is flying off the handle about the irony of her life, and poor Gia snaps. She can't take the Navid talk anymore because she likes Adrianna, and not as a friend. Gia confesses her feelings and leaves Ade looking like a deer in headlights.
That's it for this week, what did you think? Will internet gambling become a new problem for Dixon? Will Teddy forgive Silver? Is there a same-sex relationship in the works? Tune in next week for all the details.
Notes and Quotes
- Who missed Ivy and her awesome mom? Answer: We did.
- Debbie is really starting to rub us the wrong way. We understand that the Dana situation is delicate and you're feeling territorial. But this is about your son, not you. Get over it, sweet cheeks. P.S. Does your yoga class ever practice indoors? What happens on the one day a year when in rains?
- Gia is a terrible spy. It would have been much less obvious if she bought a coffee and sat down like a normal person. Right now she looks like Jacques Clouseau.
- Naomi was hysterical on her little social rant. We just wish she had turned out to be useful. Can't she be good at something besides the three S's of 90210: scheming, shopping and sex? Oh, and having the best episode quotes.
- Lila is adorable. That is all.
Lila: I wouldn’t say that too loud, unless you want to be called a geek.
Navid: By who?
Lila: By me. Geek.
Naomi: Are you asking me if you should get implants because if you are that is a great…big no-no!

Teddy: Very specific.
Navid: My cousin came over and I noticed how she’s become very womanly recently.

Naomi: Yeah that’s what I was just going to say, I have no idea...
Silver: Oh don’t be naïve, of course he’s cheating on me!
Naomi: That wouldn’t be spying, that’d be going to the coffee shop and seeing if he shows up. You should go to the coffee shop and see if he shows up!
Navid: Like they say, the early bird catches the worm. Not that you’re a worm…or like…
Lila: You’re not having a stroke, are you?
Lila: How do you ever get to the third date?
