Plus, Naomi is faced with a legit crisis: Do you hope she intervenes and stops Max’s wedding?

As if it wasn’t awkward enough that Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) is planning Max’s (Josh Zuckerman) wedding, the May 8 episode of 90210 also found the Beverly Hills gang roped into attending their respective bachelor and bachelorette parties — along with Nick Carter. And some hookers.

After a night of debauchery — which resulted in all of the guys getting arrested and Max’s fiancée freeing all the sharks at the Aquarium of the Pacific — Naomi finally had herself a little sit-down with Max. He asked her if she thought he was moving too quickly with Madison, and she said… nothing. That’s right, Naomi was actually speechless for once. As was I.

Meanwhile, Silver’s (Jessica Stroup) big decision between Liam (Matt Lanter) and Navid (Michael Steger Jr.) got a little more complicated this week when Silver learned that if she ever wants to have a baby, it’s pretty much now or never. So the question is no longer “Which guy deserves Silver,” but really “Which guy wants to become Silver’s baby daddy?” And let’s be honest: Neither the college freshman nor the underage bar tender are really father material — yet.

Ivy (Gillian Zinser) remained the most infuriating human to ever walk the earth this week when she decided to blame Diego’s (Yani Gellman) little predicament on Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Caleb (Robert Hoffman). I’m sorry, did they force Diego to live in the U.S. illegally? Was it their idea for him to spread his graffiti across Los Angeles? Did they call the cops on him for doing so? The answer to all of those questions is obviously no, but that didn’t stop Ivy from taking out her anger on the cutest little li’l hooker in Cali.

But because Annie has a constant need to please people — possibly stemming from the residual guilt she has after GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER LAST SEASON — she helped Ivy and Diego reunite in secret. The couple then asked Caleb for “sanctuary,” so Diego could remain in the church and avoid being deported. It’s a good thing Caleb decided to quit the seminary after sleeping with Annie, because I don’t think I could handle two priests on this show.

Lastly, and somehow most ridiculously, Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) relaunched her country music career with the help of her super-experience manager Austin (Justin Deeley). She sounded great at Madison’s bachelorette party, but I’m sorry, it’s going to take more than one good performance to convince me Adrianna has a future in country music.

Oh, did I forget to mention Annie and Austin’s little moment? She asked him why he kept helping her — he got Bree to confess to burning down the sorority house — and he told her he respected her for acting out of love. Could there be fireworks in their future?! We all know how much Annie loves Naomi’s sloppy seconds! (See Ethan, Liam, etc.)

Next week is the big season finale, so let’s talk out all our feelings: Do you hope Max will leave Madison for Naomi at the last minute? Do you think either Liam or Navid is ready to have a baby with Silver? And how do you feel about a potential Annie/Austin pairing? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!
