    A good episode here of 90210, which left us with a good feeling. The kind of good feeling we got at the end of the season 3 premiere, with all the plots tying in together, with someone narrating or singing in the background. Man, they should make episodes in this format more often, it always seems to bode well for this show, and it was greatly used here.



    Silver needs to stop trying to get with every guy on the cast. First Dixon, then Ethan, then Teddy, and now... Navid? I would never have been able to picture these two together, but the plot is intriguing even though it would be a shame to break Navid & Adrianna up after all of last season of buildup.



    I'm interested to see what Silver's crush will do to the group, and I'm interested to see how it plays out. The scene between Navid & his father, wow, very intense. Silver pretending to be an aspiring porn star was also memorable. Even though I think Navid is getting too much lines as of late, he was good here.



    Laura was absent and Liam scenes were kept to a minimum which was great. Oscar still being on the show at all still surprises me, but I liked the payback and I enjoyed the interactions between Naomi & Ivy. We got a great family plot: Debbie/Dixon/Annie and Jen/Ryan/Jack. Jen running away was great but I just wish Oscar could run away, then this show would be perfect.



    So overall, a good episode, and Joe Jonas wasn't completely awful. Way better than the last episode in every sense, and it was just original.moreless

    Fantastic episode! I love how Adrianna took charge in this episode. I love how she walked the red carpet with Joe Jonas then when she was asked about her love life she saw Navid and told everyone that Navid was her boyfriend. I love how she told off her music producer. Jen is definitely growing as a character, it's interesting to have her completely have a meltdown because she thinks she's a bad mother. I love Naomi and Ivy teaming up against Oscar and pretending to go skinny dipping with him, but intstead they just take all his clothes. Navid's father using underage girls in his porn films is definitely an interesting storyline. It's interesting how Silver goes undercover and they find out the truth about Navid's dad. It was so sad how Annie and Dixon found out about Harry's new girlfriend, and their mom pretended to know all along even though she didn't.moreless
