    This is the most insanely cringe worthy television that exists. It makes absolutely no sense as to why any one would watch it or find it entertaining, but for some reason it actually delivers. This episode continued with the unbelievably ridiculous evil cousin that wants to be me story line that actually made me want to eat my own face at times, least of all because it is just an amalgamation of several story lines that have already occurred in this show before. i.e. Jasper crazy evil guy ruining Annie's life and Jen crazy evil woman stealing Naomi's money by being a slut. It is very likely to end up the same way, Annie's life will get worse for a bit and then she will prove to people her cousin is crazy, she will leave, and the following episode will being with people saying "I'm just glad that crazy girl has gone" or something like that. On top of that Teddy is still gay and met another unbelievably forward gay man by hitting him on the head with a tennis ball or something (ice on your head after getting hit by a TENNIS BALL from at least 100 metres or so away, really?) and so his life is on the up. Adrianna is still extremely pathetic and it makes no sense as to why anyone is still friends with her at all, she is the most unlikable person ever and even really shallow high school girls have some kind of morals surely? Nevertheless that continues. Navid also started his own business, although I'm quite sure that there would be several legal issues in doing so that got ignored, that said, it was cheesily entertaining to watch him and Dixon succeed at something.



    The titular story involved Naomi getting her money back after a nerd helps her save some Owls and now she has confused feelings because she realises people can be attractive on the inside too.



    As I said before this is terrible television, but pretending that it isn't entertaining would just create moralistic issues for me that I can't bring myself to deal with. For that reason I have no choice but to give it 6/10.moreless

    Did anyone realize how ridiculous these story lines got over the course of two and a half years? I mean, sure, we all care for these characters and want to see what happens to them but sometimes the situations these characters get in too are just way too hard to fathom. Like Naomi losing her money to a guru, Adrianna having a reality show, Dixon & Navid shooting a music video, and finally, Annie's manipulative cousin.



    There were some scenes I could do without especially with all the Adrianna scenes but this was still a good offering from this show. I liked Max (the nerd) and I hope he becomes a regular, anything is better than dreadful Oscar in the beginning of the season. I think I'm most interested in Annie's story right now just because of how crazy that scene in the bathroom mirror was.



    The ending of the episode was pretty much the same thing as the last. Adrianna getting one step closer to finding out who Navid cheated with. Teddy & Marco? I liked the strange coincidence, but I'm not completely enthralled yet, but I did like Silver & Teddy's friendship.



    Basically, this season is nothing what I thought it would be, and the story lines as of late have just been getting too ridiculous to take. Where's the realistic high school drama this show had 2 years ago?moreless

    • Attorney: You seem pretty subdued for someone who's two-hundred thousand dollars richer. Are you okay?
      Naomi: No, I'm not. I'm happy I have my money back, but now I have a bigger problem. I think I have the hots for a nerd.

    • Max: You know, birdwatchers spend years without ever getting a burrowing owl sighting.
      Naomi: Or getting laid.
      Max: Maybe we should give up.
      Naomi: You know what, Max? I'm a lot of things. An airhead, a clotheshorse, occasional bitch, but I am not a quitter.
