The Spring Dance has proven to be a popular episode amongst fans, and it's no surprise. It's quite an eventful episode. Everyone's preparing for the dance. Brandon leads Andrea to assume he's not interesting in going, but she takes this the wrong way when she later finds out he is, as Kelly's date. This is the second episode where it is clear that there are definite sparks between Brandon and Kelly, the first one being Stand (Up) And Deliver. Steve goes with Donna, as friends, and Dylan takes Brenda. They all go in a limo together.
Steve gets very tense during the event, the gang not knowing why (it's his birthday and has found out he's adopted). He loses control when he sees Brandon and Kelly sharing a passionate kiss, even though Brandon insists it won't go any further than that. Andrea is at home alone, fantasises about being estranged from the group and from Brandon, and decides to go to the dance after all. During all this, Dylan and Brenda finally decide to take their relationship to the next level.
The episode ends on a high note, in spite of all the drama, with the gang dancing together. Kelly is voted Spring Queen and makes amends with Brenda, as throughout most of the episode, they had been at odds over going to the dance wearing the same dress as each other!
Memorable episode, the original cast all working together and evident chemistry, particularly between those who will later become the ultimate couples of the show.
