90210, you did it again! Another phenomenal episode! I think I am in love.
This week there is a new addition to the West Bev surf team and her name is Ivy. Why we need another new character is unclear to me. There is plenty of drama as is, and while setting up a story line for Ivy, regulars such as Jen, Ryan and Navid saw no screen time.
Ivy gets introduced to the crew after hitting Liam's car. It seems the writers have some sexual tension brewing between the two, but I don't really care. I am still wait for Liam to expose Naomi's sister Jen for the liar she is. Can I hit an eject button for Ivy?
This episode Annie seems smitten with creeper Jasper and even agrees to be in his movie. When Jasper asks Annie to steal a luxury car as part of the filming at first she resists, and then ultimately gives in after Jasper gushes, "you're my muse, babe." One, gag me, and two, hey Annie - did it not occur to you that you already killed a man (who happens to be Jasper's uncle, can't wait until that truth is revealed), had a naked "sext" of you sent around the entire school and alienated all of your family and friends? Does stealing a car really seem like something you need to add to that list?
Annie's brother Dixon is still hiding his relationship with Sasha inside the walls of her apartment. When Dixon decides to break up with Sasha to focus on "just being a kid", Sasha shows up at the Halloween party and tells Dixon she is pregnant. WHAT? Either this is true and Dixon's life as we know it is over, or she is lying and trying to trap him. Either story line has great potential, and I for one cannot wait to see where this goes.
Then we come to an unlike pair, Silver and Teddy! When Teddy learns that Silver's mother has cancer, he reaches out to her because he lost his own mother to cancer. He takes Silver up to the roof of a building to hit tennis balls. He claims its the best way to release the frustration. And I think we have a new couple!
While a new couple is forming, it seems another sturdy couple is starting to crack. Harry and Deb have been fighting because Deb is concerned Kelly is moving in on her man. Last week, Harry called Deb "Kelly" while hungover (whoops) and this week Harry cancelled lunch on Deb to have lunch with Kelly. Naturally, Deb showed up, saw the duo dining together, and bolted. Oh Harry, how will you get out of this one? Do you even want to repair this marriage if a relationship with Kelly is a possibility? I think Annie would spiral out of control if her parents broke up and let's be honest, she is almost at the bottom of the downward spiral. There isn't much further down to go.
And now, the best story line for last - the love triangle of Naomi, Richard and Jamie! Naomi cozied up to Richard a few weeks ago in an attempt to get closer to his mother, the dean of admissions at CU. While she pretends to care about "going green" she meets his football player roommate Jamie, who comes on pretty strong. By the end of this episode, Naomi has broken things off with Richard and is open to exploring whatever comes next with Jamie. I would be too after seeing him in just a towel!
In photos from an upcoming episode, the West Bev gang attends winter formal. Teddy and Silver apparently dance and smooch, and Annie arrives with Jasper. At least we know he hasn't chopped her to bits yet.
