90210 Recap: Episode 23, "Zero Tolerance"

90210 Rundown: Episode 23, "Zero Tolerance"

This week's episode of 90210 is all about the sophomore prom. Not as exciting as senior prom, but still: people dress up, kings and queens are named, and the school turns on Annie. So, all in all, good stuff.

We also get to the heart of Liam's obnoxious attitude, and it's so not compelling. A crappy step-dad? They could have done better than that. One thing the writers do get right this week is successfully casting and creating a seriously good villain. Naomi's sister is evil, and I like it. Poor Kelly!

And back to Annie: I have so many questions about the video she does with her dad. What is up with that '80s dress she's wearing? And those graphics? Can Harry actually crack down on off-campus activities?

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


Is it just me, or is the Silver-goes-tanning scene a bit gratuitous? The girl's on screen barely clothed for a long time with no good reason. I thought Silver's tan would go horribly wrong, but no. It goes . . . nowhere. And then I was completely obsessed with the inconsistencies of her tan the rest of the show.

OK. We need an intervention. I don't think I can take one more episode in which Naomi loses it and thrusts that insane scream upon us. It's awful! In this clip, Liam asks her to the prom and then — you got it — she screams. Prepare your eardrums.

Finally, check out Kelly's run-in with her psycho ex-student Jen (Naomi's sister). I wasn't totally sold on this actress at first, but she seriously gives me the heebie-jeebies now — and that's a good thing. This exchange, while funny and absurd (I mean, it's two adult women fighting at sophomore prom!), is also vicious. Love it.

What did you guys think of this week's episode?

Yes, I totally see a Silver-Ethan drama coming this way! I kinda dig it! Also, after this episode, Naomi came to join Annie with the most annoying character role!

I thought this was a good episode. Lots of twists and turns. I personally loved that Annie agreed to go with that nerdy guy. Oh annie, such a bitch even when you try not to be. Also, Kelly is totally going after the principal. Jeesh. I remember when Kelly could land ANY guy that walked near her, now she is going after married guys!? I think they need Matt Durning to randomly come back. I never really liked him on the show, but they need a solid male presence in Kelly's life. She is a train wreck.

OKAY, so ... EMMS - i totally thought they were setting up a wilson/kelly storyline which i mean is weird becuase kelly moving on ... like to what a married principal is weird. Ive been waiting for the Silver/Ethan storyline for a while, its been in the making progressively. I am sooo over Liam. What a fucking toolbag. & seriously what is up with his super sonic fucking hearing. How can he hear everything that goes on with annie from across a banquet hall. Jen is devious and her over enunciation gives me the heebie jeebies as well but atleast she seems interesting. everything else is soooooo blaaaa. The show started out with a blog job in a car and now they r doing nothinggggg.

I don't get it, if Liam was a real guy he really would not ever be into Naomi. His behavior up to now has been all the tell tale signs of He's Just Not That Into You. So is Kelly crushing on Principal Wilson? I wasn't watching that closely but that's what we are supposed to think by her "moving on", right? I think they also set up a Ethan/Silver romance. I thought the spray tan would go wrong too....which would have been cliche but funny! I'm just glad they didn't shoot that scene at the beginning of the season when Jessica Stroup was at her HEIGHT of anorexia.

There were so many things wrong with this episode: - Liam is a douche. A douche with a bad stepdad, but still. Cry me a river. - Naomi's "OMG you looked on my facebook page!" was so ridiculous. - Yup, Naomi's sister is still an overactor, but at least she has an interesting storyline to go with her weird over-enunciation.

I dont get Liam. First he acted like he didnt like Naomi then he likes her.. Naomi's sister is something else though.

there was so much that was expected. i don't know - i wanted to like the show - but i just can't seem to get into it. i was (like everyone) assuming that liam's story was much worse - but i guess that's not the case. as for annie - you knew that would happen. you can't be the good girl forever can you?
