The ladies of West Bev went absolutely bananas this week on ’90210.’ Relive the episode with photos & my own take on the night’s med-swapping shenanigans.
The long-awaited second coming of Silver‘s (Jessica Stroup) bipolar madness came on the April 25 episode of 90210, and while her freakout wasn’t quite as violent as it was in season one — no wine bottles was hurled, and no garbage cans were set ablaze — it did have serious consequences for Silver‘s future. And her hair.
Though the newly red-headed Silver aced her interview with the representative from New York University, she totally blew her chances for acceptance by calling him about 1,000 times afterwards with every random thought in her head. Damn you, Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes!)
Somehow, Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) managed to go even crazier than Silver this week. When she learned her nerdy boy-toy Max (Josh Zuckerman) would be shacking up with a brainy girl for the annual academic decathlon, she went crazy on her… which resulted in Naomi having to take her place on the team.
And while Naomi was simply supposed to sit there and be quiet, she couldn’t help putting her well-intended-but-ultimately-terrible two cents in, offering up an answer to the final question. Max gave her the benefit of the doubt, ignoring the urgings of his fellow teammates, and it ended up costing West Bev the competition. But did that little misstep spell the end of Naomi and Max? Of course not! The couple is now stronger than ever, and they ended the episode by walking the halls arm-in-arm.
Ivy’s (Gillian Zinser) fear of the sea also came back into the picture this week, and her ill-fated boyfriend Raj (Manish Dayal) decided to help her conquer it by pretending to drown. But instead of thanking him for helping her overcome her fear, she stormed (…actually swam) off in a huff.
And three cheers for Annie (Shenae Grimes) FINALLY getting an interesting storyline! She’s now under the tutelage of Hollywood “legend” Marla (Sally Kellerman), an old woman who needs Annie to clean her house and “get her affairs in order.” It didn’t take long for Annie to learn what that REALLY meant: Marla plans to commit physician-assisted suicide. Sad…
