90210 Recap: Episode 20, "Between a Sign and a Hard Place"

90210 Rundown: Episode 20, "Between a Sign and a Hard Place"

This week's episode of 90210 is all about BFFs. Donna is making herself at home in Beverly Hills and is basically leaving David because she's over Japan and misses Kelly. The two women get back into the swing of their friendship and even hit up a lesbian bar together! (Accidentally.) Meanwhile, Annie wants to be a "girl's girl" (whatever that means) and is very serious about being a good friend to Naomi.

I don't know about this particular development. Silver was a much better friend for Annie to have! I'm not sure why she's hitching her wagon to the mean girl if this is really her first time out of the gate making friends with her own gender. Or maybe that's exactly why: She doesn't know better yet.

Other than that, same old same old: Adrianna's still pregnant (and um, apparently less interested in adoption now that Navid is being all cute and reading baby books and, oh yeah, proposing marriage), Ethan is still having an identity crisis, and Liam is still unbearably patronizing and icky.

Sometimes words alone aren't enough to convey this show's funniest/weirdest/most dramatic scenes, so I've grabbed some of my favorite clips from this episode. To watch and discuss, just


Ugh, Liam! I have such a hard time with his gibberish. Poor, young Ethan thinks this guy is his wise oracle:

Right before Annie's parents inappropriately tell her Naomi's dad is being sued for sexual harassment, they spend some time unpacking their Kansas stuff for a yard sale. Rob Estes + odd Scottish accent = unintentional comedic gold. Also, check those credits: Estes directed this one!

Finally, here's Kelly and Donna piecing together they're at a lesbian bar. Also, it makes no sense that Donna's store is open already, but what on this show does?

What did you all think of this episode?
