So in the midst of one of the craziest weeks of my life, I managed to watch the season finale of 90210, and I have to say folks- it sucked! Okay, well it didn’t completely suck and if you haven’t seen the episode yet beware because there are spoilers in this post.
The only storyline I actually appreciated was the final scene with Silver talking to someone, who we finally get to see is Teddy (yay)…and she’s asking him to have a baby with her since she really doesn’t want Liam or Navid to be her baby daddy.
The story connection between Annie and her priest- I was just not feeling it, every time they would show him in church almost crying because he wouldn’t know what to do with his life- choose Annie or choose priesthood…like really WTF? Who comes up with this ish? It just wasn’t believable, it was more funny to me than sad. In the end, he admits he misses praying more than sex (well he didn’t really say it like that but it does come down to that)…and Annie let’s him go with a long make out session in church…and that’s the end of that. I actually liked priest guy except for when he ruined Ivy’s life by deporting her man.
Which leads me to my next point, Ivy and her man- Juan/Javier have to say goodbye after there petition to keep him in America fails. He gives up and just says he’s willing to turn himself over and live in Mexico City because apparently the art scene is happenin’ down there. In the end, while having a serious discussion with Liam at Max’s wedding, Ivy finally realizes what she’s supposed to do- which is I guess drive herself to the airport (she had been drinking champagne) and book the next flight out to Mexico City…right after she explained her life story to the lady at the airport counter. Why would it take Ivy talking to Liam to realize she was supposed to do that? Ugh, it just all seems so cheesy and predictable. Seriously, s*** like this would never go down like that in The O.C.
So then, we have the weird love triangle with Adrianna and Dickson and Austin who’s Adrianna’s manager. Austin lands Adrianna a gig in Vegas to open up for his father (he’s a big time country singer and Miley Cirus’ dad). In the end, Austin lets Adrianna follow her heart…and open up her ears because she listens to a whole lot of voicemails from her ex Dickson (who left her to go on a tour with some American Idol contestant) it’s all very confusing. Anyways, Dickson says he’ll be in town at the Santa Monica Pier around 2pm…if she’s there he’ll know she loves him back…and then who knows what will happen. They probably won’t end up together so there really wasn’t a point to end his career as an on tour DJ to return home and reunite with the girl that will probably leave him for Miley Cirus’ dad’s son next season. She’s there- he’s not…the usual story..she decides to leave and get on the plane with Austin.
Dickson calls Navid to let him know he’s running late and they had a flat tire, he asks him to tell Adrianna bla bla bla you get the point. I can’t even write it, it sounds so cheesy! Anyways, while he’s on the phone a huge 18 wheeler comes slamming into the side of their car (don’t worry he wasn’t the one driving)…and Dickson’s probably not dead but injured. Also, the music they chose to play did not fit the mood at all, those last final scenes were the most awkward scenes I’ve ever watched, something was missing.
To top it all off, Naomi interrupts Max’s wedding, they end up together, he admits he never stopped loving her- wasn’t surprised there either. Everything was kind of predictable, except for the Teddy becoming a dad bit, and Dickson dying. They could have built up the Dickson car accident to be more of a cliffhanger, it all happened so fast that it leaves you confused, you don’t get to grasp the severity of the scene.
I was enjoying the final episodes of this season, but definitely let down with the season finale. I just remember watching finales from The O.C and they would be spine chilling good. They would leave you in tears, the music would build up (thank you Imogen Heap)…I mean really Marissa shoots someone!! The stories they have on 90210 aren’t intense enough, there’s something missing, season’s should come to this huge cliffhanger towards the end of the season and it definitely didn’t feel like that. Dickson’s been missing for so many episodes, I almost forgot what he looks like, now that he’s injured, I could care less if he comes back next season.
