  • Brenda at her annoying best, and the seeds of Brandon-Kelly are planted.

    Andrea chickens out of running for class president, so she convinces Brandon to run instead. Kelly begins to see Brandon in a whole new light, and hitches her wagon to him. Brenda of course over-dramatizes the situation and does what any normal person would do; threaten to drop out of school and move out. This of course creates quite the stir at Casa-Walsh and Jim and Cindy are at their parental best. Cindy in particular is brilliant as usual. Kelly hijacks Brandons campaign from Andrea and Andrea isn't too happy with Brandon about it. Kelly promises David a date if he makes a campaign video for Brandon. In the end though, Brandon decides that his opponent, Michael Miller, would be a much better candidate and concedes the election. Brenda finds out that life on her own isn't all it's cracked up to be and comes running home with her tail between her legs. All in all, a decent episode for the gang from West Beverly. MVC: Brandon (12), Brenda (10), Kelly (5), Jim (5), and Cindy (8)moreless
