  • Adrianna gets pregnant.

    Wow, It really sucks that they had to get an actress pregnant on the show. I think its just a tad more drama & predictable plot for a soap then I expected. Just when Adrianna gets clean, they have to make her pregnant. That is just sow weird. My favorite plot is Sean being the con, that was a perfect amazing plot. It was just not predictable & was a potentially amazing plot. Kelly & Brenda are still fighting. I really wish there wasn't drama between them, I think they are too old for that. Dixon's plot was okay, didn't seem believable & a bit of a filler. Silver was great. Amazing!moreless
  • Awesome episode.

    Annie overhears Sean in a suspicious conversation with someone over the phone, in which she raises uncertainty about whether Sean really is who he claims to be. Meanwhile, Brenda tries to make amends to Kelly after revealing that she had a tryst with the departed Ryan Matthews. But they both come together when they agree to accompany Adrianna to her group therapy session for recovering drug addicts. Christina invites Dixon over at her house where she makes a startling revelation to Dixon that she has no romantic feelings for him because her interests lay elsewhere. Also, Adrianna learns her friend Hank is HIV positive and admits she has had unprotected sex with him. Later at the clinic, Adrianna is told she is HIV negative, though the doctor announces Adrianna is pregnant. Another awesome episode from 90210. I love this show, I'm really glad that Sean has left, I hated him. I can't wait for the next episode.moreless
  • Adrianna learns that she is pregnant, but who is the father?

    In this episode of 90210, the following happens. We open with Brenda in a doctor's office learning about a diagnosis, but about what? And why does she look so upset? Only time will tell. Adrianna asks Kelly to help her get in touch with Brenda, as she wants her to go to one of her meetings with her. The meeting is about thanking people who have helped you through your addiction. Annie overhears Sean on the phone and hears something about money and so she asks him what is going on. So the family having a meeting about it and we learn that Sean's adoptive father was in debt and he killed himself and so Sean now owes the debt. He owes over $200,000. Kelly goes round to see Brenda and to ask her to go with Adrianna. She says she can't and Kelly calls her selfish and leaves. But the next day, Brenda turns up to the meeting. Adrianna learns that one of the other people from rehab has recently learnt that he is HIV positive. So Brenda and Kelly agree to take Adrianna to be tested, she tells them he and her slept together a couple of times. Annie thinks that something is up with Sean and tells her mother about it. We learn that Debbie is also thinking the same, that something isn't right about the whole situation. At the clinic Adrianna learns that her HIV test is negative, but she learns that she is pregnant. Adrianna freaks out and Brenda walks out. Kelly stands by Adrianna and tells her that she will help her. Annie and Harry ask Harry to get Sean to take a paternity test to prove that he really is Harry and Tracey's son. Kelly goes round to see Brenda and Brenda tells her that she can't have kids. Brenda then tells Kelly that she is thinking about adopting a child. Harry tells Sean that he will get the money together as long as Sean agrees to take a paternity test. We also hear Dixon singing in this episode and he's actually not too bad. On the morning of the paternity test, Harry goes to wake Sean up, but he has gone. It makes Harry realise that he wasn't his son. When they try to contact the P.I. who tracked Sean down they can't, so they believe that they were working together. Naomi yet again blames Annie for Sean leaving. Annie apologises to Harry and he tells her that she doesn't have to, it's not her fault.moreless
  • Sean is revealed, Adrianna and Brenda get startling news. Starring: Rob Estes, Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, AnnaLynne McCord, Dustin Milligan, Jessica Stroup, with Lori Loughlin, and Jessica Walter

    What a comeback for the show. While seeming to be disappointing recently, and the need for a reboot. The episode proved many twists and turns that i really liked, like Brenda (special guest star Shannen Doherty) not being able to have children and Adrianna (guest star Jessica Lowndes) being pregnant after discovering that she did not have HIV. I liked that Sean (guest star Josh Henderson) was not who he said he was, but it was a little predictable, and a little bit of a shame that Harry (Rob Estes) could not listen to Annie (Shenae Grimes) or Debbie (Lori Loughlin). But i hated that Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) got mad at Annie because of the whole situation with Tracy (guest star Christina Moore) giving him the money, it didn't make much sense. This is one of the best episodes that 90210 has shown, and i hope they all stay like this.moreless
  • I knew something was up with the new hot brother.

    I'm glad that they found out what was really going on with the new brother, and I can't wait to see who they get to replace him. I thought that Brenda was going to be the one that was prego, but then when I saw the way that she was acting I thought that her bad behavior must be because of a serious problem, cancer aids or something. I was really disappointed to find out that it was only infertility. I wonder if they are setting it up so that she gets the girls baby. This episode was good but I dont think that is was one of the best I wished for more after such a long break.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: When Dixon and Annie are in the bathroom before going to bed, Annie tells him that she saw Sean get a local phone call. When Dixon tells her not to worry about it and kisses her on the forehead, Annie's arms are behind her back, but when the camera angle changes, her arms are crossed in front of her.

    • Adrianna's Contacts:

      Akiko 323-555-0167
      Ally 310-555-0134
      Annie 323-555-0123
      Danny 323-555-0132
      Kelly 310-555-0169
      Lilly 818-555-0181
      Marty 323-555-0126
      Mom 323-555-0163
      Navid 323-555-0177
      Ralphie 310-555-0156

      Since Adrianna's contacts are all in alphabetical order, it seems odd that her best friend Naomi isn't listed among them. It's also strange that Kelly's number is listed under her first name, since Adrianna always refers to her as "Ms. Taylor". Finally, the fact that the mysterious Ralphie's number appears in every phone list we've seen to date (Brenda's, Annie's, and now Adrianna's) is quite odd since it hardly seems likely that teachers and students mingle with the same group. It's also strange that in Annie's contact list Ralphie's number is 310-555-0169 - which according to Adrianna's list is Kelly's number.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Dixon: Christina came along and she exposed me to some really amazing things. But I know you hate her.
      Silver: Okay, well hate is a very strong word. Loathe and detest, maybe.

    • Dixon: Want to get some lunch?
      Silver: Yes. But first I'm just finishing up a piece on my creepy custodian guy. You know, the one with the lazy eye? I'm fairly certain he was checking out my ass this morning. But then again, maybe he was just tired.

    • Harry: (talking about Tracy) Thank you for not stabbing her to death with a pencil.
      Debbie: If you had scissors on your desk, it would be a different story.

    • Tracy: Maybe I will sell some of Charles' art. There is a Damian Hurst that I couldn't wait to get out of my bathroom.

    • (Tabitha pours a drink)
      Harry: Mother, I doubt that will help.
      Tabitha: Believe me, dear, when the topic of discussion is money, drinking always helps.

    • Annie: You're going surfing?
      Naomi: Yeah, Sean invited me. Oh, you don't surf do you?
      Sean: Harry's an amazing teacher. You should come, Annie.
      Naomi: You should come. I mean you don't have to be naturally graceful to surf.

    • Sean: So, how's school?
      Annie: You know, reading, writing, all that fun stuff.
