90210 Recap: Episode 11, "That Which We Destroy"

90210 Rundown: Episode 11, "That Which We Destroy"

Last time we saw Annie and Naomi, they were hurling insults at each other outside Annie's party when a handsome young man dressed in uniform approached and formally introduced himself as the son of Harry and Tracy. So on this week's 90210 we land right back on that doorstep, with both girls introducing themselves to the new guy as his sisters.

And if all the drama between Annie and Naomi weren't enough, we get some grown-up BFF drama from Brenda and Kelly, who are back on screen together and suddenly fighting (Brenda comes off extremely poorly in this episode, don't you think?). So while the ladies huff and puff and tear each other down, Dixon quietly broods and deals with the entrance of a new "brother" in his own way. Let's talk about it! Just

.

  • Wow — the Naomi/Annie feud is super-vicious. I mean, it gets physical at times, which seems scary to me.
  • Annie pokes fun at Naomi's Uggs (oh snap!), while Naomi tells Annie she should wear heels but has no recommendations for her face (ouch!). Annie's then stumped in terms of a snappy come-back.
  • Ethan is highly disturbed by this "new" Annie who is mean to Naomi, which brings me to my first question: Did we really know the old Annie? Annie declares to Silver that the "real" her is nerdy and nice and doesn't know how many kids Brad and Angelina have, which is all news to me. Basically, it was a little hard to swallow Annie's drastic change when we don't really know what makes her tick (besides boys) to begin with.
  • But back to the new brother for a moment. Tabitha thinks his profile is stunning and asks why he joined the military ("Are you one of those patriotic Americans I've heard so much about?").
  • The new guy, Sean, is so clean-cut and nice that I was totally prepared for him to be sinister — how about you guys?
  • Ethan and Annie together are not as cute as they think they are: "Hey girlfriend!" "Yes boyfriend?" "We're so together we're like Siamese twins!" Ugh, shoot me.
  • I do like Naomi's initiation into her new Heathers-esque group of friends. Is it just me, or are Naomi's new friends the best dressed characters on the show? Regardless, here's hoping this new clique leads to murder, like in the movie.
  • Poor Kelly. She comes across as a little pathetic in terms of her friendship with Brenda. And Brenda is so mean! She basically tells Kelly to get a life and stop trying to be her good friend.
  • Well, come to find out that's Brenda pushing Kelly away. Because she slept with Ryan. Kelly's really mad. But I'm so confused! What are/were Kelly and Ryan? He wanted to date her, she said no. I don't get it.
  • Uh-oh. Looks like a super cute cheerleader has her eye on Dixon. Silver will not be pleased. And does that cheerleader really call him the school's very own Jackie Robinson?
  • So does Annie become a mascot to show Ethan that she's back to her old self? Is that the "old" Annie? Someone with a lot of school spirit?
  • Sometimes Naomi's mom's eyes really scare me. She's a frightening woman. No wonder the new son wants out of her mothering death grip.
  • Harry really does ignore Dixon the whole time. Poor Dixon.
  • Finally, Adrianna goes to a sporting event against her own will and barfs when she smells a hot dog. I love hot dogs! But my real point here is: Where was Navid? Did she barf because she's pregnant? Did she and Navid have sex and I missed it?

What did you guys think?

Oh and I love Grandma Tabitha. Poor Lori Loughlin, she is still getting the cheesiest lines. "Your chihuahua is my chihuahua?" Gag.

Pretty boring episode. I thought it was a little contrived that Brenda slept with Ryan...I didn't see any chemistry between them. He doesn't really have chemistry with Kelly either, come to think of it. But I do wish he would come back on the show, he's the only good-looking guy.I like that Naomi is trying to get in with a new clique called "The Blendeds" and that there is going to be some tension between Silver & Dixon (finally). Annie & Ethan still annoy me to no end. Interested in finding out if Adrianna is pregnant.Does anyone know what Naomi said about 7:20 into this episode? It was before she told that guy who keeps asking her out "It's your cue to leave." I couldn't understand her at all.

I think Adriana is pregnant, which is going to lead to Navid being there for her a la ABC Family's Secret Life of the American Teen. Oh, could she have traded sex for drugs. That's too hardcore for 90210...I hope. Naomi's new clique so reminds me of GG Blair's group of followers from their snotty attitude to their over accessorizing. Loving them! Love the addition of Lauren London to play Dixon's new love interest. Although, I know that is not going to last, I can't wait to see how it goes and ends! I'm still unsure about the Kelly/Ryan/Brenda love triangle that's forming. Plus, I don't like my Kelly and Brenda sightings once a month. I need more. I can't believe how into 90210 I am. Shocked.

Did anyone else think that when Naomi was trying to get the table for her new friends she could have passed as their mother? She looks like she is at least 30 years old!!I started watching the new 9-0 because I was (and still am) such a fan of the original. Kelly and Brenda keep me coming back although I don't know how much longer I will....I say bring back more of the old cast and center the main story lines on them!!

Pelini, I have thought for quite some time that Annie looked Mouse like and Ethan looked like a monkey. UGLY.

I can't stand Annie. Her hair is like it is dirty or weird all the time. Naomi tells her to wear heels but last time i saw her with heels she looked like Minnie Mouse. And doesn't Ethan look like a monkey by the way? They are not cute AT ALL.I like Adriana and Navid.

She is totally pregnant but i don't think navid the father. She was drugs and thought guys only want sex!!!! I am sadly addicted. They better not break up silver and Dixon!!! That would be bad!! Anne not a geek but so not as mean as she appeared, that comeback showed her lack of meanness. The whole clan is a little screwed especially cos that new son is not what he seams.

Everything about this episode was stupid, but I think were going to see what the new brother was up to in the next episode, and after that phone conversation it should be very interesting. Is he a thief? Was that sob story about his foster father real? Hopefully they will do something interesting with this development.

Dixon and Navid are the ONLY saving graces of this show. And yet I continue to watch it. Sigh. Oh wait! I do also love the grandma, but mostly due to residual fondness - fondness? nay, LOVE! - for Arrested Development.

This was SUCHA horrible episode. I think the worst/funniest part was when Annie tried to insult Naomi because she was really pissed off for no reason and she kept on popping her hip and bopping her head like an idiot. Also what was with Naomio's desperateion to get in with the older girls? Seemed SO pathetic and they didnt even make her work that hard.

Navid is the virgin, not Adrianna. She is probably pregnant from some drug dealer if she is.

*I think Ethan was disturbed because she was becoming everything he DIDN'T like about Naomi *I must have missed something. I thought Adriana was Naomi's friend, but she's hanging with Silver, Annie and gang now? *I loved how Tabitha intimated that she WASN'T patriotic when questioning Sean. And yeah, Sean is the new Val (from the original) Comes in looking all sunshine and line, but you wait, he's up to some evil doin's! It may take a while, but it's coming... *I can't believe someone like Naomi ONLY had Annie and Silver and Adriana as friends so now she has to get new ones? What's wrong with that picture? The whole thing came across as a little bit desperate. *I kept waiting for Brenda to say to Kelly "Now you know how it feels" over the whole Ryan thing (referring to what Kelly & Dylan did to brenda in the original, which was so much worse than what happened here). That felt like a revenge thing to me. *I don't think Ryan/Kelly were anything more than Kelly WANTING it to be something. But Brenda knew that and slept with him anyway. That's why Kelly was so pi**ed. *And yeah, Harry was really insensitive to Dixon. Being an adopted kid myself, I totally felt Dixon's pain and honestly, he handled it way better than I probably would have. *I didn't think this was one of the better episodes. I thought this one in particular tried way too hard.
