90210 Review: Picking Up The Pieces

by at . Comments

Last we left the crew in Beverly Hills, Naomi was crashing a wedding, Silver asked Teddy to be her baby daddy, Adrianna took off for a gig in Vegas and Dixon got into a potentially fatal car accident. Well, "Til Death Do Us Part" caught us up on all of that and more.

Let's start with the biggest cliffhanger of all: Dixon.

Gathering Around Dixon

As you can tell by the above photo, he did survive, but just by a hair. After a wild goose chase that sent Annie, Silver and the boys to the morgue, they finally found out that Dixon was the only survivor and in critical condition.

Considering the aforementioned photo was officially released by The CW before the premiere, was it necessary to include the whole morgue situation? C'mon, writers, you made Annie a hooker who almost got a priest to abandon his path, can you give her storyline a mild breather?! Shenae Grimes would appreciate it.

It's too bad Ade didn't find out sooner what had happened and instead hopped into bed with the first guy she saw. There was obviously no way she could've possibly known. She thought her boyfriend had just up and ditched her, so it's understandable what she did, but you know the guilt is going to haunt her; Especially now that her one night stand, the sexy Wes Brown, has made his way into town. He's also gotten himself into a potential business deal with Navid!

The rebuilding of Liam's bar, with Navid on board, will definitely be helpful in keeping their minds occupied now that Teddy has agreed to be Silver's baby daddy. I loved her line about Teddy not having to be just "sperm and Christmas cards." It was a heavy episode and Naomi can't carry all the humor by herself. For more quips from tonight, hit our 90210 quotes section.

Speaking of Naomi, she got her man, but it doesn't look like it's going to be wedded bliss with his business partner Alec in the picture. Alec seemed a little stalkerish to me. Did anyone else get that vibe? Obviously the guy just called off his wedding, maybe he's not gonna pick up the phone. He didn't have a warrant to search Naomi's house. Besides, Max hurt Naomi in the past as well. Breakups are rarely one-sided.

It was so nice to see Debbie since she's been a bit of an absentee parent lately. Let's see... am I forgetting any of the major players? Ivy is in Mexico and we won't be seeing Austin for a little while but I think that about catches us up! That psycho Vanessa is back and she's definitely going to blackmail Liam about burning his bar down for insurance money. it's funny how you can love a character on one show and hate them on another. I was a big fan of Arielle Kebbel as Lexi on The Vampire Diaries. On 90210? Not so much.

What did you all think of the 90210 premiere? Hit the comments!

i like maxomi/annie scenes in this episode. And Ade looks so pretty! I hate alec. Whats his problem? Is he gay or what? Id prefer madison to be in this epi than him. But i still think its too early for max n naomi to get married. Oh well...

Season 5 preimere was disapointing. I liked Lori Loughlins return but Annie, Dixon, silver are a pain. Nothing is happening in the show except watching Dixon recover YucK !! Is silver and Naomi going to have babies and the show now is all going to be about babies and gay parents five. Yuck!! The writing on the show is not very good anymore. I liked it when Naomi didn't have any money and Annie was a hooker. That was the only time the show was interesting.

(CONTINUED)with her life. Honestly, I don't see her as the motherly type, besides if she does have a baby, she should think about its future. If she does out of cancer, what about the baby? Will the baby, if a girl, inherit the gene and so on. She was putting so much on Teddy, she didn't realize that she has a lot to think about herself. Teddy, I just want to see him as a season regular...that's all that matters. Alec can suck it. He seems like his SL is gonna suck. A big brother, Daddy, BFF...whatever to Max.

Okay, so Naomi marries Max for the sake of love...only after ruining his wedding. Did the writers forget that she was really hurt by ending her engagement with P.J.? So everything is magically made better by Max, whom she left for Austin (last season). Anyway, Dixon should NOT have survived, he was hit directly...by a semi truck! But through the miraculous writings of the writers he lived, and may or may not be paralyzed. This brings me to Ade, will she stick with Dix out of guilt, or fall into the arms of club promoter, Vegas guy. Great another triangle! But I am looking forward to Wes in the series. More eye candy....Liam. His expression was priceless at the morgue (not to be offensive) I almost laughed. Btw, what does Annie know about electrical wires in walls? Liam, should stick to serving drinks. Navid loves Silver. His scene at the beginning was funny. He's walking at the beach, in a suit. Whatever. Silver...wow. Poor girl, she just does not know what to do with her life. Honestly, I don't see her as the motherly type, besides if she does have a baby, she should think about its future. If she does out of cancer, what about the baby? Will the baby, if a girl, inherit the gene and so on. She was putting so much on Teddy, she didn't realize that she has a lot to think about herself. Teddy, I just want to see him as a season regular...that's all that matters.
