Is this not the saddest news ever? Let’s take a look back at Trevor’s tragically short-lived stint on ’90210.’
90210‘s Teddy Montgomery may have had the most absurd identity crisis ever – he went from star athlete to angry alcoholic to gay prom king in less than a season — but the news that he won’t be returning full-time next season has me bummed, nonetheless. TVLine is reporting that Trevor Donovan will likely appear in five episodes of the show’s fourth season as a guest star, before disappearing into the dimension of forgotten characters. I’m certain Ethan (Dustin Milligan) will welcome him with open arms.
While I’m sad beyond belief about the loss of Teddy, I can’t say I’m totally surprised. 90210 has a sad history of dropping characters and abandoning story lines for no apparent reason — seriously, where the eff is Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth) at? — and Teddy is just the latest casualty of the cruel West Bev machine.
All I can say, really, is that Trevor was a phenomenal addition to the series and he will be sorely missed. His coming-out journey this season, while a bit out-of-the-blue, was easily the show’s most compelling story line.
Whatever Trevor does next, you can bet I’ll be tuning in.
