90210 fans, myself included, were disappointed to learn that The CW drama will end this May after five outrageous seasons. And just as fans tweeted their many emotions — ranging from sadness to straight-up rage — about the cancellation, several of the show’s stars also took to Twitter to express their own feelings.
Continuing in season five’s rich tradition of drudging up the past, Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) tracked down her long-lost half brother Mark (Charlie Weber) on the Feb. 18 episode of 90210. And continuing in Naomi’s rich tradition of making terrible life choices, she accidentally lit his food truck on fire, then crashed it into a newsstand — all in the name of convincing him to open up a restaurant with her. Oh yeah, Naomi’s a restauranteur now.
After deciding to get a divorce, Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) wrestled with the idea of actually living separate lives on the Feb. 11 episode of 90210. Even though they still had chemistry — and I literally mean they did a chemistry experiment — they concluded it wouldn’t be fair to keep the marriage alive.
If you watched the 30-second promo for the winter finale of 90210, you pretty much saw the entire episode, as The CW literally gave away the three biggest twists: Naomi (AnnaLegend McCord) discovered that Alec is in love with Max, Liam (Matt Lanter) found himself tied up in a basement, and Teddy (Trevor Donovan) told Silver (Jessica Stroup) he didn’t want her to have their baby without him. But even without any so-called ‘surprises,’ the Dec. 10 episode was still as enjoyable an hour as ever. It’s always been about the nuances with this show, people. The nuances!
Let’s be real: 90210 has never been a master of continuity. Storylines get dropped, characters disappear completely, and no one seems to bat an eye. But the sudser’s 100th episode did a solid job of righting some of its past wrongs, delivering a gift to fans who have stuck with it through the good, the bad, and the Jasper — who, coincidentally, returned for the milestone episode. As did Cousin Emily. But I already told you that would happen. Wink!
The Nov. 5 episode of 90210 was… well, it was pretty uneventful. Liam (Matt Lanter) got lost in the woods; Annie (Shenae Grimes) got another new admirer; and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) got up close and personal with Ryan Lochte. OK, so it wasn’t totally uneventful.
Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) proposed having one last day of “crazy Silver fun” on the Oct. 22 episode of 90210, which used to mean throwing wine bottles at your teacher and lighting your boyfriend’s front lawn on fire. Fortunately, Silver (Jessica Stroup) has grown quite a bit since season one, so she spent the day conquering her fear of acrobatics and such.
