Seriously, Vanessa is about two episodes away from getting run over. I can hear Annie revving that engine as I type.

Naomi’s (AnnaLynne McCord) first event-planning gig turned out to be a real bitch — literally — on the Feb. 7 episode of 90210, when she had to throw a sweet 16 party for Mitchell’s (Will Kemp) vampire-obsessed daughter Carla. But the real surprise came when Naomi pulled the plug on the party because it was getting too out of hand. It’s like our slutty little baby is growing up right before our eyes!

Meanwhile, Vanessa (Arielle Kebbel) booked Liam (Matt Lanter) on a talk show in an attempt to launch his career in Hollywood — but it hit a slight snag when he was required to do more than just look beautiful. Because we all know he’s got that down to a science. Fortunately, Liam got a second chance at stardom when he saved a girl from drowning at Annie’s (Shenae Grimes) charity event. Seriously, he dove straight off a bridge dressed in a tux, like he was friggin’ Nathan Scott or something.

But wait — the drowning girl wasn’t actually a drowning girl. She was hired by Vanessa to pretend like she was drowning.

In a bizarre turn of events, Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) lent a sympathetic ear to Silver (Jessica Stroup) while she has having problems with Navid (Michael Steger). Apparently he decided to go to Princeton — I totally forgot he was smart, by the way — and Crazianna convinced Silver to ask him to stay in Beverly Hills.

And like all 90210 episodes, the biggest twist was left for the final moments: Jen (Sara Foster) appeared on Naomi’s doorstep!

That’s right, kids. The bitch is back.

OK, let’s talk: What kind of hell do you think Jen is going to raise in Beverly Hills? Does Vanessa’s little trick prove she can’t be trusted? And seriously, when did Naomi become so mature? See you in the comments section!
