Trevor Donovan Is Leaving '90210!' Join Me As I Weep For Teddy Montgomery.

Mon, June 6, 2011 4:32pm EDT by 3 Comments

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.

What show does that! as if they were better off without him? HELL TO THE NO! THANKS To THAT tall glass of water, 90210 has got ALOT more attention than it has since season 1. Why the hell would they do this? it’s like in daytime soap operas the turn over rate. Trevor has been on a daytime soap so he knows what’s it’s like to do a huge story line and be written off all the time. Mabye it’s a contract thing or mabye his management want him to do other things. 90210 is cursed with a hottie man killer. everytime there’s a hot guy on there, they’re gone over night! First Adam Gregory as Ty, then Dustin as Ethan, that spanish guy as Adrianna’s singer bf, now our Blonde Dream Teddy. SO freakin wierd. what’s left for this show really? Annie/Liam long relationship struggle,Naomi Pregnant with Weezer Wannabe Max, Ivy’s young dying cancer newlywed husband,Navid/Silver’s kinda annoying coupleness,No more parents on the show, what’s left really? 9021No!

I am literally on the verge of tears. I will always miss Teddy and his (3/4 lemonade, 1/4 iced tea) Arnold Palmer’s.
