FOX (ended 0000)
|He came home to be with Kelly. So you can't say that he went off looking for Brenda, and never did so for Kelly.|
But after what happened with Toni's death he went to Brenda first NOT Kelly. Brenda was the first person to ever understand him NOT Kelly (the only thing she understood was under the sheet activities when it came to Dylan) second WAS Toni but then the angel fell off her pedestal and died. Dylan only goes to Kelly after or whenever Brenda either:
1 Pisses him off i.e. season 3 (used Kelly for rebound after the break up) or...
2 If Brenda is not around (i.e. Season 3 summer time of 92) and when he couldn't have her in season 5 he went to Val because Kelly was with Brandon.
|Actually the soulmate thing was explained quite clearly, because Dylan believed it, it was because he felt in his heart that Kelly saved his life, the day his dad "was killed" because Kelly called Dylan, Dylan didn't get in the car with the bomb in it. I agree, though, that the soulmates thing doesnt go much more beyond that, however, it is illustrated much better in Seasons 9 and 10 (unpopular as they may be). And I still say, to even suggeset that Dylan-Brenda was even in the same ballpark as Kelly-Brandon, does a major dis-service to Brandon-Kelly. Brenda wasn't even apart of the show for half of it, and therefore pretty much irrelevant. And oh by the way, what was the first thing on Dylans mind when he returned in Season 9? He came home to be with Kelly. So you can't say that he went off looking for Brenda, and never did so for Kelly. Bottom line is that fool Dylan was in love with 2 broads that were completely not right for him, but was blinded by stupidity anyway (much like Brandons obsession with Kelly, even though she was not right for him at all because she wasnt supportive of anything he did). Obviously Brenda and Dylan had a falling out between the end of season 6 and season 9 (not surprising considering Brenda is an idiot). It's status quo for Dylan, problems with Brenda, run to Kelly, problems with Kelly, run to Brenda. Kelly is with Brandon and isn't ready to cheat on him on that day, no problem bring in Valerie for a good romp. Exit Brandon, insert Matt, same thing... bring in Gina for sheet hittin'. It's a constant cycle. Unfortunately for Dylan, the one time he did find real love, the chicks dad wanted to kill him, but whoops, kills her instead.|
|After Toni's death, he didn't run directly to Brenda. He ran out of town. No one knows where he went. It wasn't until the end of that season until we found out that they may have crossed paths in London. We don't know he went directly to Brenda ( i highly doubt he did considering that was such an emotional thing) He didn't run to Kelly, because Kelly wasn't going to be anywhere but Beverly Hills, California, and at the time, Dylan couldn't be there. Not to mention he knew she was with Collin at the time, and knew that she wasn't gonna choose him if Brandon was still around anyway. He needed to leave California. And as for running from one to the other... lets not forget the only reason he ran to Brenda in Season 4 was why? Because him and Kelly broke up. Thats what Dylan does, he runs from one girl to the next. And if neither of them are available, he finds himself a nice little side dish, (both of which in all reality were much better for him, but he's an idiot too when it comes to the Brenda and Kelly).|
Yeah I agree with you. Dylan did the same thing in early season 4 when he went on a fishing trip with Brenda. He and Kelly were kind of off and on, so he tried to get back together with Brenda.
|stellarchick86, who is your favorite couple on the show so far? I think you've seen most of the main couples by now, right?|
I never could swallow the 'Kelly's my soulmate cuz she saved me from the exploding car' idea. That was pure dumb luck. If he had been with Brenda, she would've been the one to call him. And, if D/K were supposed to be soulmates, how come they hadn't gotten together before? From comments made by both of them over the years, it didn't sound as if they really knew each all that well, so how could Dylan have felt it was always Kelly that was his soulmate? Not to mention all the times he was ready to rekindle his relationship with Brenda. Some of those occasions were already mentioned, but, in watching some of the graduation episode today, we saw how Dylan never convincingly told Kelly he would have chosen her even if Brenda had shown up that night (as shown in the flash-back to them in the swimming pool), then, when Brenda went to his house to talk about going to the U of M, he was more than willing to have a "private goodbye" with her, at least until Iris showed up!
Hmm, a thought for everyone to ruminate on: Would the writers have cooked up the B/D/K thing if Shannen hadn't started behaving like such a b*tch off-camera, leading to her exiting the show?
P.S. I have to ask, wilezrules, do you actually like 90210? lol! Alot of your comments are a wee bit on the negative side, so I was just wondering if there was anything about the show that you do like? No disrespect intended, just curious. (and I do mean just a wee bit, if you want to see real negativity, check out the SoapNet boards! Jeez, louise!
|for everyone to ruminate on: Would the writers have cooked up the B/D/K thing if Shannen hadn't started behaving like such a b*tch off-camera, leading to her exiting the show?|
I seriously doubt it.
Luke apparently put in a word for DK to get together that season. I've heard he wanted to work more with Jennie. But I doubt had Shannen's personal life not affected her work behavior so much, they would've gone so far on this triangle, or even started it at all. I still think they would've started with BK properly. Given that they went with BK anyway the following season, my guess is they would've gone with them otherwise. Star's already said that was the eventual plan post-S1.
|^ What about B/K? You saw them in Season 7-8 right?|
Yeah but I feel like that was so long ago I forgot (it was like this past summer). From what I remember, I liked them alot together, but since Im not a huge Kelly fan, I think Brandon deserves better (I think Kelly deserves Brandon less than Dylan. Brandon was such a sweetheart and always the good guy, where as Dylan I dont think ever cared for anyone really than himself, which is how Kelly is I think). But as far as the couple itself I think B/K make a better couple. Id have to watch 7-8 again which is probably what Ill do when it gets around to it, and then Ill stop at the faux-wedding LOL, so I can see it from the pilot to the end of 8 and get a better grip on the show as a whole, and then no one really needs to see 9-10 twice so I wont do that LOL. And I know now alot of people are going to say well did Kelly deserve to be cheated on? NO. No one deserves that but I kind of disregard that in a way because it was so out of character for Brandon I definetly believe it was just a tactic to drive them away since Jason was leaving. If he was staying I dont think that they wouldve done that at all.
Geminigirl, you said a lot of things I totally agree with. I was kind of trying to say that in my own way before but it didnt come out quite as well LOL.
So basically, you're saying that neither Kelly-Dylan or Brenda-Dylan wasn't that meaningful, because after all, he left Brenda to go for Kelly. If that is what you're saying, I agree with you to an extent, though Dylan went for Kelly pretty hard in Season 5.
I like 90210, it's one of my favorite shows ever. I liked it more for the longterm storylines, and most of Brandons journey (when he wasn't groveling for Kelly). I liked Steves journey, as well as the Donna-David journey (thought they played that off beautifully). I loved Val, but one thing that annoyed me, was how the plot kept thickening with her and her father. First it was he just committed suicide, then he was molesting her, then all of the sudden out of nowhere, she murdered him. My favorite story though as I've mentioned many times, is the Dylan and his father story, that pretty much began in season 2 when his dad goes to jail. The story moves on with a subplot of Dylans mom setting up a trust, which made Dylan millions (and also started some other cool storylines like Kevin-Suzanne steal his money from him). Unfortunately the story is ultimately ruined in Season 10 when his dad is revealed to have never been killed, rendering 4 years of storylines essentially useless.
