  • Silver's half birthday.

    This episode was really entertaining. Very great episode to watch. At first, I didn't think it would be that special. Until the drug dogs came. Annie goes vs. Adrianna to get a part in a movie. Adrianna ends up getting the part. A new student, Kim stirs trouble at school. Especially with Ryan. Meanwhile Ryan tries to get over Kelly by online dating. Kim continues to pester Ryan, until you find out that Kim isn't who she appears to be. Harry hired her for a drug investigation. When the drug dogs come, Naomi takes the fall for Adrianna. And Naomi expects her to do the same, but Adrianna overdoses on cocaine instead. That last scene was intense, once Naomi was saying their friendship was over, Adrianna was dying on the floor. Annie & Ethan become "parents" for a project at school which brings them closer together. They even almost kiss. Dixon grows a custom to Silver's interests such as horror movies. Harry becomes interesting, when Tracy wants to find their son together, and then she kisses him. Wow. Great episode, made me want to find out what happens next.moreless
  • Best episode so far.

    During a school drug bust Naomi takes Adrianna's drugs from her and tries to dispose of them, but she is caught. Adrianna plans to come forward, but ends up over dosing. Annie and Ethan grow closer through a class assignment about parenthood. Silver throws a party at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery celebrating her half-birthday. Tracy informs Harry that she hired a private investigator to find their son. New "student" Kimberly---revealed to be an undercover cop---shakes things up at West Beverly High and "flirts" with Ryan who tells her to keep her distance. Oh my god, amazing episode! Best one so far in 90210! I loved everything about it. Ethan is amazing. I love everybody and jsut the whole storyline, can't wait to watch more!moreless
  • Silver celebrates her half-birthday and Naomi takes the fall for Adrianna.

    In this episode of 90210, the following happens. We open with a new girl starting school. In class, Ethan and Annie are paired off together, for a school project which sees them looking after a computer based baby doll. Adrianna comes back to school and bumps into Naomi. Tracey asks Harry how he feels about it, if they look in to trying to track down their son, who Tracey gave up for adoption. Tracey even tries to kiss Harry, but he pulls away. A few days later when they talk, Naomi realises that Adrianna is still on drugs. She then finds drugs in her bag, and just at that point a locker search starts, in the hope of finding drugs. In order to help/save her friend, Naomi takes the drugs and flushes them down the toilet, but the police find her as she is doing it. Naomi is then escorted off of the school and put into a police car. From there she is taken to the police station and questioned. But Annie saw Adrianna hand Naomi the drugs and so she and Ethan go to see Adrianna to try to get her to go to the police station and for her to confession the truth, that the drugs where really hers. When Naomi returns home, she sees her mother searching her room for drugs. Adrianna goes round to see Naomi and agrees to tell the truth. But she wants to go home first and tell her mother. When she gets home, her mother has a cake waiting for her and tells Adrianna that they were about to lose the house and since she now has a movie, they can keep the house. Silver throws a party for her half-birthday. She shows the original Psycho movie in a grave yard. Naomi waits with her father at the lawyer's office, for Adrianna to show up, but she doesn't show. At the end of the episode we learn that the new girl at school is actually an undercover cop for the narcotics squad. We also see that Harry knows all about it. As the episode draws to a close, Naomi realises how serious her situation is. As Naomi rings Adrianna, we see how laying unconscious on the floor and paramedics around her saying that she has no pulse and they are trying to save her life, which Naomi leaves a very brutal but honest message on her phone.moreless
  • Silver invites everyone to the Hollywood Forever Cemetry to watch Psycho. Annie and Ethan are paired on a baby project bringing the two somewhat closer together. Naomi finds Adrianna with drugs just as the police are doing a drugs search at school!moreless

    As far as riveting high-school entertainment goes this episode was the pinnacle! Riveting from beginning to end with characters reaching new lows and potential love interests growing and being annoyingly interupted but...craftily interupted! Adrianna is a confusing character, you may ponder on whether to feel sorry for her or think she's a horrible person. Annie and Ethan would be perfect but of course it's being beautifully dragged out and Naomi is...growing on me, she started out Daddy's little rich girl but this episode paints her in a differnt light. I personaly am addicted to this show and this was another addictivly brilliant epsiode.moreless
  • Naomi helps Adrianna, Silver has a movie half-birthday. Starring: Rob Estes, Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, AnnaLynne McCord, Dustin Milligan, Ryan Eggold, Jessica Stroup, Michael Steger, with Lori Loughlin and Jessica Waltermoreless

    I really liked that Silver (Jessica Stroup) threw herself a scary half-birthday party with horror films and i thought that it was something unique, and i enjoyed getting to know the character like that. I like the relationship that is forming between Kimberly (guest star Jessica Lucas) and Mr. Matthews (Ryan Eggold) more because i think it provides a necessary love triangle other than the one of Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord), Annie (Shenae Grimes), and Ethan (Dusin Milligan), with Kelly Taylor (Special Guest Star Jennie Garth) thrown into a triangle. Kim's secret it huge and i am a little surprised by it. But the biggest part of the episode was when Naomi helped Adrianna (guest star Jessica Lowndes) with her getting rid of drugs. That was huge, and i am glad that we get to see that Naomi is actually a good friend.moreless

    • Goof: When Naomi is at Adrianna's house talking with her mother, Adrianna's mom starts squeezing lemon juice into her iced tea with her right hand. When the camera changes angles, she is squeezing the lemon with her left hand, and when the shot changes again, the lemon is inside the glass.

    • When the teacher leads the class about family planning, she places the baby doll on the corner of Ethan's desk. She never takes it off, but in the next second she's coming from behind Ethan and she's still holding the "baby", which technically should still be on the desk.

      Tabitha: I never flashed Mauricio. I like to swim naked. I like how it feels when the water glides off my ass. Why should I give that up?
      Harry: Mom, Mauricio comes once a week. Do you have to swim naked at that exact time?
      Tabitha: Harry, don't be such a prude. I'm letting my freak flag fly, and there's nothing you can do about it.

      Dixon: "A House of a Thousand Corpses" is important?

    • Kimberly: I hear this is where the party's at.
      Ryan: That's right, so you can sit down and pour yourself a tall glass of "shut up" and "don't speak" for the next hour.

      Kimberly: In L.A.? Really? That's rare.
      Jacqueline: O.M.G! He said the exact same thing! Don't you guys know L.A. Is the capital of Hollywood?

    • Ryan: Listen, I don't want to assume anything here, but I've been through this with students before, so if you're having any kind of feelings. I'm your teacher, you're my student, and I'm a lot older than you. I mean, I'm not a lot a lot…
      Kimberly: Dude, chill. I just didn't want you to catch her stupidity. I heard it's contagious. And I hope you didn't think I had a crush on you because… gross.

    • Ethan: I wonder, like, how and when our baby was made, you know?
      Annie: Your dad never had that conversation with you?
