90210 Finale: 'One Party Can Ruin Your Summer' Review - Featured

I've been bored with some of the 90210 storylines lately with nothing big really happening besides the arrival of Naomi's sister and dealing with Silver's breakdown, but wow did this finale ever pick up the drama!


In last night's finale, 'One Party Can Ruin Your Summer,' (what a perfect and actually understated title), I loved seeing Naomi stand up to her sister, though clearly it was going to lead to something terrible, then with no question ditching her own party to rush to Adrianna as she had her baby. It was very sad to see Adrianna's struggle after giving birth, but kudos to 90210 for what I would imagine would be a very realistic portrayal of how difficult it is to give up a baby.


I also thought the comic relief of the Wilson parents getting high from after-prom pot brownies was great, and helped avoid what had previously seemed obvious of Harry figuring out the party and busting it up. It was also interesting to see Kelly's crush on Harry come out, but I'd rather not have it lead to anything, but just leave it at an extra bit of intrigue for this finale.


Otherwise, the fall of Liam to Jen was not a surprise since we already knew Jen was manipulative and was fine with taking advantage of Naomi. But really? Can she be that big of a bitch to happily sleep with her little sister's teenage boyfriend, meanwhile tricking him into thinking she was the neighbor and had heard all the girls gossiping about his secrets? Is she really so awful to not only do that, but to frame one of Naomi's closest friends?


Well, apparently that answer is yes. I wonder if Jen had known where it would lead Annie that she would still do it, but I'm afraid she just might. But it sure would help in that decision to know exactly what it was that happened to Annie... we saw her driving post-volcanic meltdown with a bottle of vodka in her passenger seat. Then we saw/heard her hit something as she gazed at the vodka, then immediately, seemingly aware of the car right behind her, sped away with something looking very much like a body on the road.


My guess is that if it was a person, it was Ethan because he's leaving the show, but I feel like it was so oddly set up, and Ethan's already going to Colorado leaving an easier option like him deciding to stay there, that it seems weird to kill him off like that. Also, I'm not sure how the timing would work out as it was light out when Annie was driving, but dark when she left the party and called the cops. She had time to drive along chugging vodka for a while as the sun came up, and I'd assume anyone at that party took off pretty quickly. So if Ethan were for some reason walking home, could he have been along that road after it had gotten light out?


Also, what happened after Ethan and Silver talked (and made out)? It seems this left an opening for Silver to either freak out or find clarity by breaking up with Dixon, and deciding to be with Ethan who may or may not have been killed by his ex-girlfriend.


Oh the craziness! Now while I couldn't handle all that every week, that's the kind of drama I'm looking for in 90210! So now that we're left hanging with all sorts of cliffhangers, what do you expect we'll discover when we finally get to Season 2? Will Ethan be dead? Did Annie really hit and run? Will Naomi discover her sister was the guilty one? Share your thoughts!

naomi will of course find out sooner or later that it was her sister that slept with her boyfriend.but i think this is gonna take some time...i don´t think it was a person that was hit/killed by annie because that would change her whole life.i think annie can´t keep her secret and is gonna tell anyone...but who knows when...or she will stop the car immediately.if she doesn´t do anythink about it than she really has become a different person.she would have lost her innocence...

Thank you i was waiting for someone to mention that. They let that out a good few episodes ago and it could have led to a very good story line but since ethan is going it wont be worth doing it next year.The writers really need to sort things out next season because sometimes theres good parts but most of the time there were just stupid stories with the odd good part.But i do hope it does get better the show has so much potential.I cant wait to see what happens with liam as well.

I didn't think Annie hit something? i thought she just braked sharply, to do whatever she was going to do, then drove away when she saw the other car approaching, which i want to know who could possibly be in that car, they had a west beverley high sticker on the bumper so there will probably be a connection there.

i am soo sad to see ethan go (if he really is going). i didnt like him too much when the season began but he and silver look awesome together and i definitly never liked dixon to begin with.i also think that annie didnt hit a person, that would be too much. it could have been an animal...but if she looked over the steering wheel why would she leave? if it was an animal, why would it matter? and there was def. something/someone on the floor...might that have been ryan's car? i cant remember what kind he had but im pretty sure it was kind of an old looking one? was that a(n) alumni/student sticker?liam in military school sounds...eh...final thought: naomi's sister is terribly cliche, sleeping with her boyfriends when they disagree? ugh played out

i was gonna say it reminded me of ryans car...but i cant remember how it looked like...with the bumper sticker maybe they will get another past 90210 guest actor (hopefully jason priestley or maybe luke perry) that would be awesome!I was really starting to like Liam.. and with the whole thing about ethan and silver would be great..but if ethan is off the show then whats the point? and are we ever gonna find out about the missing half brother to annie and naomi?? maybe that was him in the car!

i think she killed ty- because 2 people are supposed to be leaving this season and ethan is supposed to be going somewhere else and ty is someone that they could do without on the show but at the same time cause more drama...

I dont think Annie killed Ethan because that would be too dramatic. Annie kills ex-boyfriend?? If that does happen, then the whole show will go downhill and cancel very soon. I like Ethan, why does he have to go? He is so hot =)
Jen is a backstabbing whore who should be killed off.
Silver and Ethan's love story seems interesting and I want it to carry on (no ETHAN DYING).
And why do they need to kill Ethan? Can't they just make him move school or something??
Liam, I feel so sorry for him. I mean it wasnt his fault. He didnt know it was her sister and he slept with her because he TOLD NAOMI NOT TO TELL ANYONE - I guess he was just really sensitive....
If Ethan goes then Liam should stay as a main characterr =))
God, please dont make Ethan be the one who got run over by Annie =S... And the car after Annie's was definetly Ryan's car because I remember that time ages ago with the undercover policewomen and they got in the car?? And I definitely saw Ryan's head, defo defo!!!
XX 90210 will suck without you Dustin Milligann XXX

I think one of the best parts of the whole episode was "The Funeral" Band of Horses playing in the background during the final scenes.
Oh, and I can't wait for Jen to get her comeuppance because she really really bothers me.
Also, I agree it is a shame that the actor who plays Ethan is leaving, especially since his character finally has some depth and an interesting storyline. Before he was a boring stereotypical jock, and now, well, he's proven himself to be a dynamic character.

I think the Ethan and Silver relationship is the dumbest thing ever. I projected their relationship lasting about five episodes or less, It is practically the same as when annie dated him when naomi asked her not to but the difference is that Dixon loves her so that is even worse for a so called friend to do that to another, very screwed up. What he is trying to do date all over the girls on 90210? Next he will be making babies with Adrianna. Also, stealing her photo and the way he was watching her swim was creepy. Dont you know two crazy people do not make a good couple. And finally if 90210 is realistic the both of them just lost Dixon as a friend. I know i would not forgive them. (Also I hope Annie is ok)

I definitely think it would be too dramatic if Annie hit a person.I think the story-line will be that she'll be thorn for something she did not commit,thinking she kill somebody and would end up behaving differently than ever before.

I have a feeling that even if Silver does like Ethan (which she's made it REALLY obvious that she does) she's still not going to go for him, i have a hunch that she might dump dixon but she won't go with Ethan either, she'll probably just say the 'I need some time alone to find out who I really am' speech to both of them and just remain single. And as for Jen i think that it was only about time the writers should bring someone like her to spice things up a little, she's a great character and everyone here has to admit that she's the character people love to hate! And as for Annie i suddenly hav a feelin that she might have driven to cansas (or however you spell it) becuase i think she misses there; she clearly doesn't fit in anymore in beverly hills.

i cant believe ethans leaving hes such a babe,also i think that was ryans car as i remembered it from a previous episodethat jen is such a bitch i cant belive she wold do that to naomiok so naomi can be a bit of a bitch herself but nobody deserves that TWICE!!!!as for annie i do think she hit a person possibly dixon but i dont think she killed him as that would bring a very quick end to the showbecause really how much more can you do after that and im so annoyed about the whole liam thing he was actually turning out to be a very strong character in the show and the thing he had going with naomi was quite amusing at timesi dont think ethan and silver shud get together as it would break dixons heart and i dont think ethan will be able to handle her bi-polari also think what adrianna did was very brave and it takes a lot of guts to do something like that well nothing else really to be said except bring on season 2!!!!!:D

It's definately not Ryans car, as Ryan owns an old BMW the car at the end of the finale is an old mercedes. Liam will also carry on to be in the series, it's obvious hes just going to break out of military school.

There is going to be a lot of drama next season, I can see it. This show has gotten a lot better from before.
Jen, is clearly a bitch and I hope she dies on the show or something dramatic happens to her.

My 90210 season 2 predictions: I think it would be really interesting if whoever Annie hits survives and she ends up spending the summer in prison or something. When she gets out she cuold be like really dark and disturbed and everyone at West Bev. will hate her for what she did so her main mission will be to take down Naomi Naomi will somehow find out it was really Jen with Liam and she will try to make things right with Annie but Annie has had enough. I don't think it was Ethan that was hit (just because that is way to obvious and would show a very big lack of creativity on the writers behalf) For Ethan leaving I think it would be good if they uncovered some dirty secret with Ethans family and he has to move because of it. Silver should end up choosing Dixon over Ethan too, but have Dixon turn her down to show what she goes through with her first heartbreak and the realizatin of how stupid that tattoo was. As for Adrianna she's had a rough year , maybe her character could finally get a big acting break or something and they could show how the fame gets to her head. Either way I just hope season 2 is full of drama-packed excitement!

well for one thing nobody seemed to mention how horribly everyone completely humilliated annie!!! i was sooooooooo upset for her!!!! and naomi is such a terrible friend for believing it!!!!! i was in complete shock :O but its nothing special to expect from naomi.another thing i didnt even know ethan was reading til i read the other comments which just means more that annie didnt hit ethan bcoz that would be a terrible way for him to leave they couldnt do that though him and silver is a no no i think silver will break up with dixon and then regret it and want him and he wont be there waiting for her (time and time again that he has been there - a person can only take so much and he shows how it affects him)liam will stay bcoz they been leading up to annie's change through him he will tell naomi it was jen (the cut throat bitch slut skank whore) naomi will try get her friendship back with annit - which wont work.annies driving around and some1 will find her that she will spill the beans to... she never hit a person though i could see... if you can watch it again watch as she drives off it seems to big to be a personadriana she was amazing!!!umm and yea... season 2 will be 10x more then we expect =Di want season 2 now!!!!lota lovies <3 :)
