'90210' Season Finale Recap: Ivy Gets Hitched, Annie Gets Ditched & Naomi Might Be Preggers!

Posted Mon, May 16, 2011 10:44pm EDT

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…

I thought that this 90210 season finale wasn’t as good as the others although I did enjoy it, I really thought for a second that Adrianna was going to jump. But I am glad she never I think that the good side will come back out in her and they will all be friends again. I do think Naomi is pregnant because I Dont think she has a major reason to lie and she is going to be a really good mother if she is! Haha. I have doubts about Max though, I think he will go of to college and be out the picture for a while… Oh and Ivy and Raj are so cute together!.. Does anybody know when the next season back on again?

Sadly, that is true about the characters’ lack of connection :(

Unfortunately.

Yeah, seriously, did they cut Debbie and Ryan’s scenes entirely?! What a bummer for Lori Loughlin and Ryan Eggold.

Hey Andy First of all I wanna point out you made a mistake in your article in the first line – “The second season finale of 90210 delivered everything….” .This is the third season finale not the second.

Now coming to the episode. I Gotta be honest… It didn’t meet my expectations. A die-hard 90210 fan will see that in the 2 earlier season finales we had unimaginable, mindblowing, soul-shredding and unexpected twists (Annie murdering the guy on the road, Naomi getting raped by Mr.Cannon etc.). But somehow this finale didn’t have that “PUNCH!” factor. I would have liked this episode as a regular one but not a finale. The wedding was fun but I felt it took up almost the entire episode. I was happy everyone discovered Adrianna for the jerk that she really is. Infact that cliff scene would have been a better cliffhanger for the finale – Adrianna drunk and standing on the edge of the cliff wondering whether to jump or not *BAM* credits roll. I’m not really excited about Naomi’s pregnancy though. The preggy card is getting tiring because every tv show has used it over and over again. (INCLUDING 90210!!!!! remember adrianna?) The recent finale of Gossip girl had the pregnancy scare, Quinn on Glee was Preggo for an entire season… see it’s almost become a cliche! Do teens even get pregnant that often in real life????
Okay i conclude saying it was an average episode… Didn’t match up to the expectations of earlier 90210 finales but still it was not very BAD or anything…

Thanks for pointing that out! I fixed :)

As for the pregnancy thing, I totally agree with you. Really lame. It’s the THIRD “surprise” pregnancy the show has thrown our way and it’s getting a little tired.

(P.S. She should have jumped.)

Yeah I didn’t see any scene involving Ryan and Debbie. I guess they cut that storyline out due to time.

Also, I don’t think Annie will really go to Carnegie Mellon. Or she’ll go for a few days, and end up going to a school in Southern California like the rest of her friends. I think it will be similar to how Brenda didn’t stay in Minnesota for college in the original Beverly Hills, 90210 series.

My co-worker and fellow 90210 expert says, just like the original, everyone will somehow end up going to the same college. In this case, probably CU, since Naomi is the lowest rung on the intelligence ladder.

I was thinking the same thing about Ryan and Debbie – there were no where to be found and what I read was that he was going to ask her to go to Paris with him??

Why bring Ryan, Debbie, and Naomi’s sister back into the picture if nothing was to ever come of it? The characters were quietly disappearing as it was.

I hope Naomi is pregnant but I doubt she is :- – I adore her and Max

The more I think about Debbie/Ryan/Jen, the angrier I get. I know their characters were getting boring and unnecessary but AT LEAST give them a proper send-off! Sad :(
