90210 1.22: 'The Party's Over' Review - Featured

90210 brought the continuation of the Adrianna-Navid drama (and giant mistakes) this week. We started out with a glimmer of sad but honest hope as their friends told them they were making an enormous mistake deciding to get married. But then, as I actually appreciated, all the friends decided to be supportive despite their opinions, and so came the bachelor and bachelorette parties!


As they partied, Navid met a nice sorority sister who told him not to get married, and Adrianna was confronted with Navid's mother telling her they were making a big mistake, leading Adrianna to fall back to her old drug-needing ways. And eureka! Reality struck both of them as Adrianna realized she was not at all ready to raise a child, husband and support system or not, and Navid realized they were too young and did have too much ahead of them to jump into marriage and a family.


So, we still get our adorable couple together, but only "engaged to be engaged," and planning to give away the baby. While I'm sure there is still more drama ahead around this issue as it'll be an emotional rollercoaster for Adrianna to give birth and give up her baby, but I think they finally came around to the most realistic and smart decision that was done in a non-preachy way and was also not done for the sake of creating more drama, but showing the characters be a more real than there for the sake of our need for any sort of drama.


Besides, the entire pregnancy and relationship brings plenty of drama without a ridiculous wedding, and our other characters are starting to hold up their end of the drama as well! This week Dixon got good and drunk at Navid's bachelor party, realizing all that was going on with Silver was too much for him, and Silver got some good advice from Ethan reminding her their relationship wasn't all about Dixon taking care of her.


Also, some of the more interesting developing drama was discovering that Naomi's sister did not come back just to help out Naomi in their time of family crisis, but to get and use Naomi's trust fund since she'd already burned through her entire million! And she's stirring up trouble dating Mr. Matthews, so double trouble!


I'd hate to see Naomi realize the one she thinks is coming in for her to depend on is really using her, but I suppose it's a good lesson to the charmed rich that even those close to you could try to use you for your money.


So next week it's prom time for our 90210-ers which will clearly be drama-central, so what do you think will go down at prom? Will Adrianna have her baby? Will Annie flip her volcano switch and hook up with Liam or something else crazy? Will Naomi discover the truth about her sister? Will her sister end up in a cat fight with Kelly? Comment with your thoughts!

Good predictions, Kendra! All of the above. I totally see an Annie/Liam hookup on the horizon, as well as a possible cliffhanger water-breakage at prom from Adrianna. I imagine Naomi will figure out what's up with Jen...and btw...while a million dollars is a lot of money...is it really enough to go buying (luxury) houses with in LA?! Hello mortgage crisis!
I also like the spice that Jen is adding to the show here (honestly, I didn't miss Kelly's absence at all this week).
Finally, wanted to comment that while I initially complained, I kind of like Ethan these days, and will be sad to see him go next season.

I agree AlbZ, there were definitely some more-than-friends undertones in that conversation between Ethan and Silver although to be fair, they were all from Ethan's side. I think Silver is too caught up in Dixon right now to even think of dating other guys. Although, at this point, I think it'd be good for the both of them because they are acting like an old, married couple, already embittered and dreading to go home. I wouldn't want Dixon and Silver to start hating each other
