'90210' Recap: Naomi & Max Break Up! Are You The Saddest?

90210 episode 4x06

Plus, Liam ‘droopy drawers’ Court becomes a model & Annie’s escort job turns a major profit!

No, Halloween didn’t come early. Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord) is just crying terrifying clown tears in the above photo because Max (Josh Zuckerman) dumped her on the Oct. 18 episode of 90210. Though she helped him pull off a crazy magic show — which was so real I was convinced this was a Secret Circle crossover — he told her he couldn’t handle her also feelings for Austin (Justin Deeley.)

But while Max discovered the importance of self-respect this week, Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Liam (Matt Lanter) both learned a far more valuable life lesson: It’s totally OK to give up your self-respect if someone is throwing tons of money at you. For Liam, that money came in the form of a $10,000 modeling check — see the hilariously awkward inset photo above — while Annie’s G-rated prostitution led to a major donation to Raj’s (Manish Dayal) cancer treatment fund.

So I guess Annie also learned a second lesson: Prostitution cures cancer.

Meanwhile, Navid (Michael Steger) decided he was totes over helping his uncle run a stolen car ring, so he turned himself into the fuzz. But as always, there was a catch: His uncle — who I’m convinced also does the voice of Count Chocula — texted him a photo of Silver (Jessica Stroup), implying that he’s got her in his chocolatey vampire crosshairs. Ruh-roh!

Lastly, Dixon (Tristan Wilds) put the A-D-D in “addiction” this week when he hit rock bottom and couldn’t perform at Raj’s benefit. Fortunately, Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) was there to “help out” and perform one of her original songs in his place.

Seriously, first she steals music off a dead guy, and now she’s stealing people’s spots in a cancer benefit? Stay classy, Ade!

So after all the wonderful buildup from last season, this is what the new writer gives me? Naomi forgets the man of her life, the one who changed his dreams and went to college in CA for her, to chase a bimbo cowboy?? I take it this is Josh’s last episode. After the way you dumped on this couple, plus the way you shat on Liam and Annie, screw it. I’m done with this crap! Enjoy your cowboy antics. I won’t be watching.

I’m not sad because of the break up. I’m just dissapointed with what they did to Maxomi.. starting with the false pregnancy result, and the triangle, and the weird magic show (Max as a magician? really?).. i’ve been waiting for so long, just for ‘that’? what a waste. oh well.. byebye Max.. :(
