College was the last thing on the gang’s minds this week on ’90210.’ What did you think of the finale?
The third season finale of 90210 delivered everything we were promised — a dramatic breakup, a contemplation of suicide, and a “surprise” pregnancy — yet somehow I feel empty inside. Did I set my hopes up too high? Read on for my full recap and tell me what you thought of the evening’s shocking developments.
Before I begin, I have to ask this question — and feel free to tell me I’m crazy — but were Debbie (Lori Loughlin) and Ryan (Ryan Eggold) in this episode at all? They were mentioned in the description, and we were promised some sort of a send-off for them, but I honestly don’t recall seeing them. I’ll need to consult my DVR about this, but if any of you can set me straight, please do so.
Now let’s talk about Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes.) She started off this season as an international recording sensation, beloved by millions, and gradually devolved into the most soulless bitch that ever walked the halls of West Beverly Hills High School. With each new act of deception — from swapping out Silver’s (Jessica Stroup) bipolar medication to convincing Navid (Michael Steger) he kissed her — I hated Adrianna a little bit more, so you can imagine my joy when Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) found Silver’s pills in Adrianna’s bag during the finale and all her lies were exposed.
And you might think I’m a terrible person, but as Adrianna stood on the ledge and contemplated suicide, I actually yelled out “JUMP!” Not because I condone suicide — God, this is going to come back to haunt me — but because Adrianna has become such a wretched creature, I kind of don’t want to see her become good again. When she stepped back from the ledge and made her dramatic vow to better herself, I was super disappointed.
I was also a little disappointed with the big pregnancy reveal. I like the idea of Naomi dealing with potential motherhood — just like I revealed to you earlier in the day — but I have a sneaking suspicion we won’t ever see the baby in question. You see, Max’s (Josh Zuckerman) parents are shipping him off to Massachusetts for the summer as punishment for helping Naomi cheat and getting expelled, so it seemed a little too convenient when she showed up at his house to deliver her big news. Either Naomi is lying (again!) or everything just progressed a little too quickly to seem at all believable.
Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Liam (Matt Lanter) served up a little relationship drama when Liam announced he’d be leaving for the summer to work on a fishing boat — you know, because that’s what teens do these days — and Annie decided to dump him. But in typical Annie fashion, she changed her mind and ran (potentially many miles) to the port where his boat was docked. Though Liam did end up taking off, he got one last goodbye with Annie. I’m kind of interested to see where these two go next year…
