90210 Review: What Happens In Vegas Won't Stay In Vegas

by at . Comments

Sin City never seemed as chaotic as when the Beverly Hills gang made its way on to the Strip. But was "Vegas, Maybe?" the cause of so much havoc in everyone's lives this week? Or was it the usual drama?

Naomi tried to get closer to all-of-a-sudden boyfriend Austin. Trying to figure out why Austin was acting so hinky, she got a rude awakening when she met his dbag of a dad, Judd Ridge (aka Billy Ray Cyrus). I've never cared for Billy Ray, but I actually liked him in this role. Arrogant and bloated, it suited him. And we finally got to see from where Austin got his smug cockiness. As far Austin, it was refreshing to see him showing some vulnerability for once. Nothing like having daddy issues.

Shane and Teddy
Poor Naomi, always trying to save the day and getting her tail caught in the door. Her Marilyn imitation was horrific, but at least she managed to impress pervy dad. Or so we thought. Not that it mattered in the end because Austin jumped down her throat about coming to his rescue.

Liam discovered the perks of being a celebrity when he met Vinny Guadagnino by the pool. Can someone please tell me what the appeal of that Jersey lizard king is? Liam had no issue with him, though, and got caught up in the good life. Until it wasn't that good anymore. Losing $80K at the poker tournament, panic set in until he managed to get it together and won some of his money back. Lesson learned. Stick with your little bar, leave the gambling to the sharks.

Dixon faced his old gambling demons successfully but that was easy to do when his new drug addiction was the one in control this time around. I laughed out loud when he was sweating bullets and started feeling claustrophobic while stuck in the private poker party with Liam. Really, Dixon? What more can you develop this season? An eating disorder? Are you going to start stalking Adrianna once she's done getting you clean?

Annie found out her whore-mongering boyfriend, Patrick was, well... a whore-mongerer. Surprise! Like no one saw THAT coming. But since Dixon came clean to her about his ADHD addiction in order to save Adrianna, Annie was now determined to save her brother and place him in rehab. But how? Use Patrick for the funds! Finally, the girl got some brains in her.

Annie really should've saved her anger for Patrick instead of wailing on Adrianna. Poor Ade. Another one trying to redeem herself and just getting the short end of the stick.

Navid continued to play undercover and tried to bring down Uncle Amal by delivering his mystery package. Socks. Was that just a feeble attempt to hook up the cute cop with him?

And is anyone as annoyed by bug-eyed Marissa as I am? Is that woman in love with Silver or what? Please, go away.

Teddy and Shane made this episode all worthwhile. Not only were they an incredibly cute couple that happened to be very easy on the eyes, but that faux wedding was actually beautiful. Teddy may have been wavering (again) about the whole gay future thing but seeing all his friends around him and hearing Shane's vows convinced him he was right where he had to be.

Until next week, that is.

Am I the only one who is extremely disappointed in Annie? Out of everyone, you'd think she would know what it's like to be an outcast among her friends. Don't get me wrong, I like Annie, but way to be a complete bitch! Adrianna was actually right about everything. I honestly thought Annie would have no issues with Adrianna to be honest. It's the first time they've actually come head-to-head. I'm still waiting for the counter-attack between Adrianna and Naomi. It's the one I'm still waiting for.
As for Annie, how ignorant is she? "I met a man, who paid for my services". You honestly didn't think you'd be the only one? He travels a lot on business trips. How did he meet you? A business trip. Dumbass. However, well done if you get money for Dixon and his rehab!
Speaking of Naomi, I actually feel sorry for her. Every time she tries to do the right thing, she gets crushed. I don't see her and Austin lasting long. Out by midseason perhaps?
Silver was actually enjoyable this episode. It could be the fact that her and Navid are apart, but when they're apart, their storylines are actually better. Not gonna lie, I laughed so hard when it was just the two them in the hotel room, looking at the view AND when she caught him with the cop. Awkward much.
Liam is just stupid. Honestly, you blew 80K, when the buy in was 10K? How many times did you buy in. Didn't think 30K was a limit? Dumbass.
I'm pretty sure this was the last appearance of Teddy, unless he has ONE more episode left, but even if it is, it was a great way to send his character off. Goodbye Teddy!
I thought it was poor to just have ONCE scene for Ivy. I also thought it was strange that she was seen talking to Adrianna. Pretty sure it's the first scene with them together and there was no tension. I guess that means Liam, Ivy and Dixon are all cool with Adrianna. Navid seemed to be too at the bar. 4 down, 4 to go, hah Ade?
Overall, it was a great episode and it made up for the episode that was kinda piss-pour last week. My favorite part was the Addixon hook-up! I thought the first kiss was gonna be the whole "sorry, that was a mistake", but when they kept going, my God! Hell yeah! I can't wait to see Navid and Silver's faces! Hahhahaha.

Tonight, I think Annie may very well have replaced Silver as this show's most annoying girl. And like Silver, I highly doubt Annie will ever apologize to Adrianna. I don't think Annie has any right to judge other people, especially considering that she's a prostitute. Why does Adrianna even want to be friends with these girls? None of them acknowledge that Silver (or Navid) wronged her in any way. And they all treat Adrianna like she's some kind of demon when she's actually the most likeable girl on this show. Adrianna deserves better than these idiots.

Because it's not a road trip without Silver and me pulling hair and throwing each other into a pool.

Adrianna

I want to bring my sad and pathetic friends with me.
