90210 Season 5 Review “The Sea Change” – Someone Pay Attention to Navid, Please


I think Liam needs to accept that although the universe blessed him with a perfect face and body, it also gave him the worst luck when it comes to women. She doesn’t give with both hands, baby. In this week’s episode of 90210, “The Sea Change,” we said goodbye (maybe) to Liam’s latest mistake, Vanessa, when she accidentally fell over the balcony of their rented beach-house and (maybe) got washed out to sea. Anyone who knows the conventions, though, can probably safely assume that she got up, staggered away without being noticed and will return during sweeps to take someone (probably Silver) hostage.

For the time being, though, Liam is free to be with Silver again, if he can get over the fact that she’s going to have Teddy’s baby. She’s not pregnant yet, but she’s got his swimmers now and it’s only a matter of time. I was very worried that they both might have gotten drunk enough at Naomi and Max’s reception to attempt conception the old-fashioned way, but Teddy is really, really gay, and I like that so much better.

As for the reception, Naomi decided to throw a conservative party to show Max’s investors that she isn’t going to be a disruptive force in his life. Of course, in doing so she almost drove away his two biggest clients, but it all worked out in the end. I still say Max’s BFF is out for her blood; he just knows now that all he has to do is set the bad situations up and Naomi will fall into them every time.

Speaking of falling, Dixon’s pride kept him from letting Annie help him with his physical therapy and it ended well with him lying on the floor at the reception, unable to get up. But at least Annie has a potential new bed-buddy in the sarcastic jerk she and Dixon met at PT. He might not be able to do much between the sheets, but at least he’s not A) paying her or B) married to God.

Dixon is also paranoid (rightfully so) about Adrianna, as she’s totally freaked out now that her Vegas hook-up is in town, partnering up with her friends on business ventures. I’m so sorry and I mean nothing bad towards the actor, but I really think the better storyline would have been Dixon dying in that accident, and everyone having to deal with the fall-out.

In other news, Navid is trying to re-invent himself as Charlie Sheen without the drug problem. Only Naomi seemed to notice, and that was only because his dates showed more side-boob than her. Poor Navid. Someone has to love him best!

So, show of hands, who thinks Vanessa survived her fall? Let me know below. And you can always follow me on Twitter @krieli1, so you never miss a review.
