  • All the kids get together for the spring dance, and all live the cliche of the american school celebrations : losing their virginity, being crowned class queen, and the one that avoids the popular events in lieu of a movie night.

    This is one of the best episodes of season one. Much to Steve's dismay, Kelly takes Brandon as her date to Spring dance, which follows her selfish behaviour as she counts on being Spring Queen. Her attitude of that alienates her from Brenda as well as Steve. Andrea is pissed about Kelly and Brandon going together, with her feelings for Brandon showing. She opts to eat ice cream and watch gory horror movies home alone, where she fantasises about chainsawing her classmates. Brenda and Dylan get a room at the hotel where the dance is being held, and Brenda loses her virginity to him. Steve and Donna go together to the prom, but Donnas' legless dress - and Steve's rotten attitude - contribute to the both of them having a bad night. It is discovered that it is Steve's birthday, and Steve is most hurt by Kelly, who is too wrapped up in herself to notice. David bets Scott that he'll get a dance with Kelly. And after winning a dance contest at the dance, he does so. It's funny to watch Kelly reject him. Andrea eventually shows up and dances with Brandon. Even though there is tension between Sreve-Kelly-Brandon-Andrea, it is all worked out by episodes end. The most exciting is the Brenda and Dylan saga, as I believe they were one of 90210's most influentual couples. A fun watch!
