FOX (ended 2000)
|The Emma thing, and Emily thing in Season 5 were the ONLY thing that was questionable that Brandon did. And very big question marks to be sure. But like you hinted, I wonder why, in the case of Emma. You have some nagging b|tch nagging at you about the way you put on your pants in the morning, you start to look elsewhere for loving, especially when that other person, isn't exactly supportive of your personal aspirations, and you've GIVEN up all your dreams to be with her already. Lets not forget, Brandon was on the fast track coming out of college, but because of his own stupidity (IMO) to be with Kelly no matter what, he slowed down.|
And Gwen, I think itd be more of the producers or head of FOX or whoever's fault for what they did/wanting2 more seasons. The writers were just trying to do a way with Jennie staying and Jason leaving..its not really their fault, they had to do what they could do. And if they had a long-distance relationship, I dont think fans would be too pleased, and if Kelly left I dont think theyd want that, and Jennie didnt want to go. So blame the money hungry people from Fox and the producers of 90210 or whoever is in charge of that, not the writers.
|Writers made the best of a lousy situation. They brought Dylan back in a completely last ditch attempt to salvage something. It didn't work. Long distance wouldn't work, because with Dylan coming back the Kelly-Dylan thing would start again. Come on, does anyone REALLY think Kelly chose Brandon in Season 7? It's one thing to say that to Brandon with Dylan completely out of the picture and safely in another country, but remember, she went to the airport to meet Dylan. Dylan wasn't there. If Dylan HAD been there, sparks would've flew again. Lets not lose sight of the fact that the Kelly character is very selfish. And lets not lose sight of the fact that she constantly cheated on Matt with Dylan. Lets not forget she did the same to Brandon in Season 5. Once a cheater, always a cheater.|
Wow, you really are a Dylan/Kelly fan now, LOL. In S5, she was in love with both Brandon and Dylan, so she was torn between the two of them. You could argue that she also cheated on Dylan in S4 when she kissed Brandon and by continuing to be flirtatious with Brandon until they finally hooked up. In S7, she specifically said that she's not in love with Dylan anymore!!! She ONLY loved Brandon! Her heart belonged to him. So I disagree with your suggestion of sparks flying if Dylan was at the airport. She went to the airport WEARING THE RING, anticipating Dylan was going to be there, and wanted to tell him that she chose Brandon. She had made her decision, once and for all, and that was Brandon.
Kelly cheating on Matt in S9-10 is not the same thing. She was never really in love with him. Kelly was reluctant to get back into a relationship with Dylan because he was screwed up emotionally and on drugs ever since he came back. If she was with Brandon instead of Matt, I highly doubt that she would have betrayed him. The Kelly character grew up a lot after the cocaine ordeal. She became more mature, so it's unlikely she would cheat on someone she truly loved. The writers would have probably broken them up and redone the B/K/D triangle if both Brandon and Dylan were there in S9-10, but in the end she would've chosen Brandon. B/K had true love, D/K didn't.

^ Then why did she wear the ring to the airport to tell Dylan she had chosen Brandon? Obviously she was sincere about only being in love with Brandon.
If Kelly had gone for Dylan after PS I Love You, then they would have indicated that to the viewers somehow. But since they didn't do that, it means she didn't go after Dylan. They only showed Kelly wanting Brandon back, which indicates she prefers him over Dylan.
^ By going back to Brandon after turning both him and Dylan down, she was choosing Brandon indirectly. If Brandon accepted and got back in a relationship with Kelly, how do you think that would make Dylan feel? She chose herself and then gets back together with Brandon. Don't you think Dylan would be a little p*ssed off? So clearly it indicates to me that even though she loved them both and couldn't choose directly because she didn't want to break either of their hearts, she wanted Brandon more. He was her preference.
Kelly wasn't bothered about Dylan and Toni dating. She was bothered because they were getting married. It was just a few months after the world trip offer, so that's why she was upset. I guess she was shocked that he was making such a committment so soon. But, the important point is, she did accept the fact that he was marrying Toni. She didn't try to stop him from doing so.
Kelly did love Brandon and Dylan for different aspects of their personality. I wouldn't say she loved Dylan for the "physical attraction" though. She was physically attracted to both obviously, LOL. You're right about Brandon providing emotionial stability. As a K/D hater, I don't know what part of Dylan's personality Kelly was drawn to. I guess he provided drama and craziness to the relationship, LOL.
Kelly's comment about the night on the beach with Dylan, was in reference to her single best kiss. That doesn't mean her kisses with Brandon or even Collin lacked true passion, as you seem to imply. I'm sure there was true passion when she kissed all three of them because, like you said, she mentioned Brandon wins for consistency and Collin for intensity. Even though you say "all bets are off" if both Brandon and Dylan were around, judging from some of your comments, it seems like you think Kelly prefers Dylan over Brandon. I completely disagree with that notion.
