This week’s episode was all about traffic: sex-trafficking, baby-trafficking, and oddly enough, actual car traffic.

Liam (Matt Lanter) decided to relaunch his bar on 90210 — though he didn’t go with the Chippendales theme like I requested via e-mail — and he got a little help from that skank-of-many-names Vanessa (Arielle Kebbel.) I’m still not sure how I’m supposed to feel about Vanessa, but I will say I approve of her decorating skills… which basically call for a cardboard cut-out of Liam in every corner.

And now, presenting this week’s highlights — with a touch of my own insanity:

Annie makes a tasty sandwich of lies: Annie (Shenae Grimes) was ready to turn Bree over to the police after finding out she burned the sorority to the ground — until Annie’s partner in prostitution reminded her that would draw attention to their “extra-curricular career.” So for reasons I won’t even begin to comprehend, Austin (Justin Deeley) took the fall in order to keep Annie and Dixon (Tristan Wilds) out of the slammer.

Crazy Adrianna is back: Apparently there’s only one thing that turns Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) into a raging psychopath faster than drugs — babies! Pretending to be Silver (Jessica Stroup), Ade kidnapped baby Mazie and took her to the park. In her defense, she told Silver she was “going to bring her back,” so I guess all is forgiven.

Ivy’s life remains unfortunate: Desperate to be known as more than just “that girl who left her cancer-stricken husband,” Ivy (Gillian Zinser) tried to get her work shown in a photo gallery this week. Too bad the gallery owner was all, “your work sucks.”

So what are your thoughts on this week’s episode? Are you warming up to the idea of Liam being with Vanessa? Are you bummed we’ll be seeing a lot less of Austin in the future? And do you really think Silver and Adrianna will be friends again? See you in the comments!
