  • Awesome.

    9.5
    Naomi drops her concerns over Jen's overspending after being asked to the prom by Liam. Meanwhile, Annie is going to the prom with a geek just to prove Liam is wrong. After Navid confronts Ty about his fatherly responsibilities, Adrianna goes into labor. Kelly's warnings about Jen has Ryan seeing it as a sign of jealousy. Awesome episode from 90210 again. I can't wait for the next episode and season two of this show. It's so relaxing to watch, it's not my favourite TV show but it's just something. Anyway, awesome episode and I can't wait to see more episodes like this.moreless
  • Prom night.

    8.0
    Well it definitely was a buildup for the season finale, but it wasn't as great as posed to be. For prom night, nothing stood out especially. Annie feels forced to go out on a date with someone she doesn't want to go to. I love the playful banter with Annie & Liam. People think Annie rats out a party, just because she was in the video with her dad, the principal. Her reputation starts to crumble, as you get an essence on what the next episode will be like. Ethan decides to go to Montana. I love the Jen vs. Kelly scenes, it was hilarious. We also get to see that Jen is not a nice person, as Kelly warns. Kelly might have a crush on Harry. Dixon & Silver get prom queen & king. Silver rejects it but she's going to West Beverly next year! That's exciting, but Dixon & Silver are in a fight. Navid & Ty get in a fist fight, then Adrianna's water breaks: Cliffhanger. Naomi & Liam connect, I love their relationship prior to this episode. Liam confesses his love for her. A good episode, which was setup for the next episode. A good prom episode. Decent.moreless
  • Prom Night!

    8.5
    In this episode of 90210, the following happens. We open with the school learning that after prom parties this year are banned and if anyone is caught at one, where alcohol is being served then they will be suspended and will have to go to summer school. Liam's step father threatens to move him to military school unless things start to improve at school. That same night Liam asks Naomi to prom, and she accepts. When Naomi tries to buy a prom dress, her card gets declined and so she goes home to ask her sister about their situation. So Jen comes clean and confesses that she lied and admits that she has basically lost all of her money. Then the night they have all been waiting for arrives, Prom Night. The Prom King is announced and it is Dixon. The Prom Queen is announced as Silver, who wasn't even nominated, she is a write in. She gives a big speech and then hands her crown back, which seems to upset Dixon. Silver tells Dixon that she wants to go back to West Beverley, but he doesn't seem to care. Navid and Ty fight and when Adriana comes out, she tells Navid that her water has broken and that she is going into labour. As the episode ends we see Liam and Naomi dancing together in the street, in the snow.moreless

    wow... so prom was as good as it was gonna get but the west bev kids can only go for so long without some type of drama.... I think what Silver did for dixon was very sweet... she went and got tanned and acrilic nails, all things she would never do because thats just not her but she did it to make her boyfriend and love of her life happy, And what dixon did was also so romantic becasue he got people to write in silver for prom queen and she won.... But i thought that her little thank you speech was kind of funny, because all she did was tell the truth that all that prom stuff isn't what she likes. And personally i think that Liam and naomi are and odd but cute couple... and if i were naomi i would get my sister up out my house quick....... cause naomi is too niaeve to see that her sister is up to something... and Annnie was nice enough to take that boy the prom i don't care if it was a pitty date (even though thats wrong!!) he shouldn't have done her like that though... And then he told that Phoebe girl that annie told her daddy where the after party was no if she wasn't being loud when she walked passed him he wouldn't have found out.... And i was so rooting for Navid to whip Ty's tail cause he really deserves it because he didn't wanna help adrianna all he wanted her to do was give the baby up for adoption and that wasn't what she wanted from the start... thats why im glad she has a guy like Navid and when she went into labor i was so shocked but i had a feeling she would thought but we all know that Navid got her back.... But this was an excellent episode really!!!!!!!!moreless
  • The prom went as smooth as could be expected.

    8.0
    I was happy to see Naomi and Liam scenes FINALLY! because they're the only reason i watch and I was glad he finally told her that he liked her (she really deserved to hear it a long time ago). Their end scene really made the episode, very fairytale and cinematic. The look of the fake snow (perfect, since Liam mentioned that LA lacked snow) and the way they held each other as they danced made me forgive the fact that its strange that it started falling at all...who was working the machine exactly?



    Part of me expected Annie to blow as Liam's been taunting her for a couple of episodes...so i was disappointed. And how dopey was the thing her dad made her film about not having alcohol?



    Silver and Dixon can't manage to see eye to eye- and she realizes who she is (just as Ethan does the same and decides to give up the lacrosse thing).



    and Adrianna goes into labour.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Liam: Tick, tock, tick, tock.
      Annie: What is that supposed to mean?
      Liam: Nothing, just wondering how long is it gonna take for you to drop the nice girl act.

    • Naomi: (to Liam) I actually like you, and everyone said that I was a fool, you don't treat me right, and it's true. I mean, all night you haven't wanted to dance or take photos or talk, but still stupid me just kept on defending you.

    • Naomi: I was like, "Oh my God! He invited me to prom. Oh my God! He cleaned out the trash in his car. Oh my God! He bought me a black orchid corsage." I mean... (looks at the corsage) Why did you did you get me this corsage?
      Liam: You know I'm supposed to.
      Naomi: But it's a black orchid.
      Liam: It's what they had in the store.
      Naomi: That's not true. You have to special order black orchids. I know because they're my favorite flower but the question is how did you know they're my favorite? Did you asked someone?
      Liam: No
      Naomi: You looked on my Facebook page, didn't you? You did! You wanted to learn about me so you looked on my Facebook page.

    • Silver: I'll tell you this has been a hard year for me. This made me question everything - who I am, what I like, what I'm all about. So thank you for reminding me. (touches crown) This is not me. I hate proms! I do. I'm sorry, but I really do. They're all about conformity and popularity and all these things I really detest.

    • Silver: So maybe I am a freak, but that is better than being some weird zombie prom-loving loser. I don't know exactly who I am, but I do know who I'm not. I am no prom queen. (takes off crown)
      Naomi: Let me help with that. (takes the crown)
      Silver: So thanks, (gets shoes and raises them) but no thanks!
