  • Extremely important episode

    8.9
    This is a very loaded episode, and pretty good overall. Lots of different dynamics working on the first day of school. The most obvious being the debut of Emily Valentine, who actually would re-emerge in seasons 4 and 5, and even referenced in Season 7. She's the new girl, rides a bike, and all the guys at West Beverly. The first one to meet her is Dylan. Dylan asks her out on a date. Moments later, she meets Brandon, who also asks her out on a date. On top of that she winds up in the Kelly-Brenda-Donna clique and the 4 of them are planning a skit for the talent contest. But when it's revealed to Brenda that Emily is going out with Dylan the proverbial **** hitteth the fan!" She ends up making out with Dylan on the date, and the very net night, Brandon takes her to the same spot and he makes out with her as well. Round and round we go, and Emily finds herself being ridiculed (unfairly I might add) by Brenda. Brenda eventually apologizes and they all go through with the talent contest. Brenda ends up back together with Dylan to close out the episode. It's also worth noting that David gets freaked out by Scott and his fascination with guns. David ends with "cool it with the guns." No truer words could have ever been spoken. Really good episode. MVC: Brandon (24), Brenda (18), Dylan (12), and David (6)moreless
  • The gang's second junior year starts. Emily Valentine comes to down and charms all the boys. She dates Dylan, and then Brandon and makes Bren jealous. In the end, Bren has nothing to worry about as she and Dylan reunite, in Dylan's car to Chris Issakmoreless

    9.1
    Recently, this episode has probably become my all-time favorite 90210 episode. I see it as the pinnacle of the Brenda/Dylan angst that really started in "Beach Blanket Brandon." The gang, walking up to West Bev, on the first day of school, is so classic and meeting Emily Valentine is so cool. Too bad she went super-psycho several episodes later. The final scene, with B/D making up and getting back together, just might be my all-time favorite 90210 scene. This is a superb episode. Now that Season 2 drops May 1, 2007, anyone who has never checked this wonderful episode out can finally see what I'm talking about!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Emily Valentine says something along the lines of "This place isn't Beverly Hills, it's Knot's Landing!" Brian Austin Green (David) was on Knot's Landing from 1986-1989 playing Brian Cunningham.

    • When this episode originally aired and in syndication the song Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer plays in the beginning of the show when the gang is getting ready for the first day of school. However, when Season 2 was released on DVD the song was changed, even though Donna still makes the comment that David had played the song.

    • In this episode, the gang (except David and Scott) starts its junior year (11th grade). However, they started their junior year in the first episode of the series.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Dylan: You can't have it both ways, Bren. The fact of the matter is you gave up any right to ask me questions about my sex life when you decided you didn't want to be a part of it.

    • Emily Valentine: When I got to school they should have given me a score card instead of a class schedule, so I can keep track of everyone's boyfriends.

    • Steve: You know Kelly, this time last year we were barely on speaking terms.
      Kelly: Aww, the good old days.
