Episode Summary

EDIT
Aloha, Beverly Hills (2)
AIRED:
Donna's boss becomes ill and asks her to coordinate the photo shoot. The event proves to be an unmitigated disaster, and the photographer berates Donna. Noah Hunter, a male model participating in the shoot, defends Donna; he also responds to an insult by punching the photographer. Donna's boss takes the blame for forcing her to shoulder too much responsibility. Valerie spends the entire trip trying to get closer to Noah, although she is put off by the fact that he performs boat maintenance for a living. Brandon runs into Tracy and her new fiancé, a grad student at the University of Hawaii. Donna becomes unnerved when Brandon and Tracy frolic and play in the water. She places an emergency call to Kelly, who immediately flies over from L.A. Kelly is embarrassed after learning that Tracy is engaged. During a hike, David slips off some rocks and crashes into the water. Noah and Brandon dive in to rescue him, and David receives treatment for his injuries. Noah decides to return to Los Angeles with the gang, as he has an offer to work on a boat. Donna suggests that he stay on her parents' boat. The gang arrives at the L.A. airport late at night, and Brandon finds that his car has a flat tire. He insists on changing it immediately, rather than getting a ride from the others. Brandon confronts two men who are stealing a car nearby. They drive away, but come back to the lot and start shooting. Kelly catches a bullet in the abdomen.moreless

  • Great scenic views of Hawaii and plenty of drama: fashion shoot then somebody gets shot

    7.5
    There are comedic moments to this episode such as Donna's mishaps at her photoshoot.

    Kelly comes to Hawaii, only to find Brandon and Tracey embracing. She is angry until she meets Tracey's fiancee. Everybody enjoys the remainder of the trip and Kelly celebrates her birthday.



    They keep up the drama with not one, but two characters getting injured. David falls during a hike, and Kelly gets shot at the end of the episode.



    The song Supermodel (You Better Work) by RuPaul is hilarious during the fashion shoot.moreless
  • David gets hurt on a hike, Val shows just how money hungry she is and Kelly is proven wrong (finally) and embarrassed about it.

    8.2
    I like this eppy, it had some humorous parts as well as the drama. I love when Kelly walks up to Brandon and Tracy and has to admit how embarrassed she is for jumping to conclusions when she sees the two of them together. When Brandon introduces Tracy's fiance Eric you could see the look of sheer embarrassment in Kelly's face -- finally miss "i'm always right" has to admit she made a mistake.

    When David gets hurt during the hike, I liked how Brandon paired up with Noah without allowing the others to know what was going on so that they wouldn't get scared.

    When Kelly is shot in the end and the everyone is running to them you can clearly see that David is sort of limping and then he throws the cane he has been using which shows the writers didn't over look that aspect. On the Val front she is telling Noah that she has a thing for him - but he's poor and she's not sure she should get involved with him (true assessment of Val's character).moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Kelly celebrates her birthday in this episode while in Hawaii. After the shooting while in the hospital, she states that she is 22 years old. Kelly would be 23. She celebrated her 21st birthday in 1995 when she was dating Colin & he gave her that huge birthday painting.

    • During the gang's last night in Hawaii, David and Donna come in and David is walking on a cane with a limp, due to his injuries from his fall during the hike. He continues his limp when they return to LA, but at the very end of the show when Kelly is gunned down, the camera starts to pan out and you see the rest of the gang run over to Brandon and Kelly. You will notice that David is one of first people to reach Brandon and Kelly and he shows no sign of injuries.
