90210 Review: Trust Falls

by at . Comments

Beverly Hills, what a thrill! When Max wanted to take Naomi on a camping trip, things weren't quite as fun as they were in Troop Beverly Hills, but there were interesting developments nonetheless.

"Into the Wild" was all about Naomi trying to tell Max about that certain kiss.

Ryan Lochte on 90210

Here's a refresher: Two weeks ago, Naomi Clark-Miller - as she's apparently calling herself - attempted to butter up her husband's business partner Alec. Little did she know that Alec was setting her up in order to make it look like they kissed and she betrayed Max. Somehow in this whole equation, Alec told Max what he did and Max ended up mad at Naomi for NOT telling him.

Max wasn't mad that his best friend and business partner set up his wife to make it look like they were kissing. Instead, he was peeved Naomi didn't share it with him right away. Did it ever occur to Max that Naomi was scared of his exact reaction? She was afraid he wouldn't believe her, would turn away from her and ultimately side with Alec no matter what. I'd say Naomi's fears were confirmed. Yes, trust is important, but shouldn't that trust extend to believing that your husband's business partner isn't scheming against you?

I'm Team Naomi on this one, sorry Max.

Speaking of trusting people, Silver should know better than to sign off on having nude photographs taken without reading the fine print. I know she's stressed, but have the words "nude photos" ever ended up linked to something positive in a sentence? No. It always ends up that they were leaked, hacked and are now all over the Internet. I have to say that this new side of Silver could be interesting, though. If it makes her feel sexy and more alive then sure, go for it.

Adrianna got a little too into the pole dance training. Did she really think that the dancing and performing a sexy song for Taylor was going to result in nothing happening? Fat chance. He's hot, she's hot, it was the perfect moment for something to transpire. From the looks of the previews, a lot more will continue to happen next week. I would just hate to see Dixon so heartbroken, especially when he's got crappy people in his life like Navid.

Navid was very harsh. How could he speak that way to one of his best friends? Since when is Navid all about "image?" Ummm... your dad owned a porn studio and hired underage girls, nice try. Good thing Liam is able to be a good friend while he tries to sway his business teacher into thinking he's a serious student. She's a little judgmental considering she doesn't know the kid, but we shall see what happens.

Oh yeah, Ryan Lochte had a cameo and it was not even close to as funny as his 30 Rock one. What did you all think of this week's episode? Hit the comments!

I hate Naomi and Max together! Please being Liomi back, it's a long shot but season 1 and 2 were the best seasons only because they focused on Naomi and Liam's relationship!

[-].. but later, she was caught again, having a feeling for Austin. And then Max was heartbroken, he left Naomi. So I guess what in Max's mind right now is, "How could I trust her? She failed to tell me the truth (for the 2nd/3rd time). Is she secretly in love with Alec now, my best friend?" - Max already ignored everyone and everything in his life (his fiancee, his parents, his dream to go to M.I.T), just to be with Naomi. That's why he seems so heartbroken. But it's good that he never yelled at Naomi, lucky you Naomi. ;D

I'm team Max. I can see why he's so sad with Naomi. If i was in his situation, i would also questioned Naomi's action for desperately trying to set a "date" with Alec on a boat and forced him to have a good time with her, when Max - her husband, was on a business trip. If not because of her desperate action to be friend with Alec, all these would NOT happened. If we went back to their love triangles with Austin, we can see almost the same pattern. Naomi had sex with Austin, then Max came back to her life. Max asked if she already met someone else, she said "NO". After that Max accidently caught Naomi/Austin half naked and almost kissing in the van. What exactly Naomi said to Max? "we had sex, but only once". Max asked why she didn't tell him when he asked her before, and her answer was "because it should never happened. because he brings out the best of her and would never risk losing that, and she feel nothing for Austin, bla bla bla".. but later, she was caught again, having a feeling for Austin. And then Max was heartbroken, he left Naomi. So I guess what in Max's mind right now is, "How could I trust her? She failed to tell me the truth (for the 2nd/3rd time). Is she secretly in love with Alec now, my best friend?" - Max already ignored everyone and everything in his life (his fiancee, his parents, his dream to go to M.I.T), just to be with Naomi.

Navid has been pathetic for a while now... but I DID enjoy his conversation with the blonde -LOL! -I'm looking forward to Liam showing his new teatcher his talents in the next ep -yum! and it was cool to see some Annie-Silver-bonding time -LIKE! ^w^

Adriannanavid

Max and Naomi were a bit boring this time, but if it leads to Naomi bringing Alec DOWN in the next ep, then I'm all for it! It has been a while since her last take-down... Also: how SMOKIN' was Ade's performance -but I feel bad for Dix too

The gloves are finally coming off for Mrs. Naomi Clark-Miller. Poor Alec! NOT!

Sorry, I didn't realize my comment was that long :D To share, my professor in college would actually not allow his students to orally present a report if their written output is not up to par with his standards. Would come to a point that he'd throw it in the trashcan (and rip it to shreds) without even reading it so it's basically a regular occurence for those who have experienced his terror tactics. Liam should prove to her that he's not some dude who just happened to take some class to get quick credit and go. At least he wisened up knowing that finishing an education could lead him to new heights in life. As for Naomi, she had issues with trust and have underlying fears, as anyone would in their own situation. It's an inner struggle that she wants to overcome even if failures would often dampen her spirit. I believe a takedown plan is in order next episode. 90210 is such an underrated show I don't understand the hate some people are giving.

Navid broke Dixon's trust but I understand that it's not personal on his end, he should have trusted Dixon enough to share him his concerns. Might put a wedge between their bromance but should recover quickly than what transpired in the hour. Dixon's been a childish jerk so him exciting revenge on Navid is no surprise because of his characterization. However, being a PWD (for at least until he fully recovers) is fueling him into proving that he can do things that he know he can. A bit of a flawed perception on his end but sure, let's give him a chance to prove us and Navid wrong.
