90210: Window Shopping

After a brutal two week hiatus, 90210 returned tonight with a special treat for the ladies - nearly half an episode of shirtless Liam! Liam is rescued from his degrading job by a seemingly charitable woman. When she said, "you'll stay in my pool house" did you not have an immediate flashback to Ryan on the O.C.?

This mystery savior turns out to be the mother of his stage five clinger admirer, Laura. While Liam is moving in, Laura happens to notice a scar on his lower back. Cut to Annie and Charlie making out and Annie discovered a similar scar on Charlie's back. Coincidence? I think not.

I loved Annie and Charlie together in this episode. Its true that there is nothing sexier than a man speaking a foreign language. It also doesn't hurt that he is a pacifist playwright.

Jen and Naomi also try to make peace this hour when Jen finds out about Naomi and Mr. Cannon. Its impossible to trust Jen, but she did seem to have one sincere moment.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Oscar appears to have no soul when he bluntly reveals to Ivy that he also slept with her mother all summer long. I will be interested to see where this story line goes. Will Oscar disappear now that his task is complete? Will Ivy move out of her mother's house? Predictions?

Previews for next week show an odd ritual called "the Undies," an award ceremony honoring underachievers. Oh the possibilities . . .
