'90210': Goodbye, Jackie Taylor

jackie-taylor-kelly-silver.jpgTonight on "90210," Jackie Taylor goes to the ritzy zip code in the sky.

Silver, Jackie & Kelly
Silver calls 911 and Jackie goes to the hospital for a heart attack. The doctors say because of the chemo that she's too weak to fight much longer, but she's conscious so the girls can so good-bye. Kelly can't go see her, which (like many of our commenters) I totally don't get because Jackie stopped being crappy to her early in the original. Silver tells Kelly that she'll regret it if she doesn't say good-bye but Kelly still won't go see her.

Later, Kelly comes to get Silver at the hospital and finds Jackie's room empty and thinks Jackie is gone. Kelly collapses in tears but thankfully Jackie was just moved to a private room. Kelly goes to see her and Jackie assures Kelly that she turned out so much better than she could've expected and she's such a good mother to Silver and strong and beautiful. I know this shouldn't make me tear up because there are MANY problems with this plot but it does anyway. Totally crying. Later, Jackie dies in her sleep with Kelly and Silver holding her hands. Sniffle.

Navid & Adrianna
Navid tells Naomi that Ade is back on drugs and Naomi confronts her. Ade totally lies. Her evidence is that she's not acting anything like how she was acting when she was on coke. Well, that's because she's on prescrips now. Ade confronts Navid and says she's not using because he wasn't that hard to get over and she was never really in love with him. Wow. Adrianna SUCKS this season.

Naomi & her many boys
Naomi wants to join the news broadcast for a segment called "Clark after Dark" where she gives out sex advice. I'd watch. At the CU dorms, Dean Carter and Richard catch Naomi making out with Jamie and the Dean sees how she's kinda flighty and slutty. It comes out to Jamie that Naomi was dating Richard to get to his mom and Jamie gets really mad at her for using Richard like that, so he breaks it off.

So Naomi comes clean with Richard about what she was up to but he doesn't want to hear it. Yeah, I'm with the boys on this one. She heads back to school and ends up helping Liam carry a watermelon box, hurting his hand in the process. They share a moment over a cubed ice pack. Jamie comes for Naomi because he's impressed she apologized to Richard and that he's falling for her, but Naomi tells him she's still hung up on Liam.

When Naomi goes to cry to Ade about it, she finds Ade's drugs and storms out because Ade has lied one too many times about it.

Ryan & Jen
Ryan and Jen are hitting up charity dinners and whatnot. Ryan wants to spend some time in his world too so he plans a weekend for them to go camping. It rains and Jen loses her mind because she wore suede boots on a camping trip. He finally confronts her about how selfish she is and she looks sad. Don't believe her! Cover her in honey and leave her for a bear, Ryan!

Except Ryan falls asleep and while he's out, Jen puts up the tent and starts a fire. Honesty comes up and Ryan says he wants to know everything, so she blurts out that she's broke and living off Naomi because she lost her money trying to land her husband. Ryan doesn't care. Man, if I didn't hate her breathing guts I would've liked this scene.

The Wilsons
Dixon is all surly about the Sasha lie, while Annie is whistling and lighter-than-air, telling her parents she wants to invite Jasper over for dinner. meanwhile, Jasper is getting dressed in her bedroom. Annie, you're so naughty! Dixon won't stick around for the dinner and before he leaves, he drops the "drug dealer" bomb, so Harry and Debbie are totally weird around Jasper. Of course, it doesn't help that Annie is all Stockholm Syndrome-y around him.

When they go to dinner, Jasper confronts the rumor and says that kids are mean and he didn't used to care, but now he does care because of Annie. The Wilsons seem to come around. Except after he's gone, they tell Annie she shouldn't see him anymore because Jasper is "odd" and Annie isn't herself around him. Annie tells them they don't even know who she is anymore.

When she tells Jasper, he tells her not to get mad and that they'll figure something out.  The next day, he pushes Navid to a nasty fall down the stairs. Oh Jasper. And I liked you so much.

Thoughts & Tidbits

  • Mr. Wilson says "dirty deeds," like that's what all "the kids" are saying. Yeah, if by "the kids" you mean "AC/DC."
  • Speaking of old bands, that cover of "Wonderwall" was excellent.
  • Annie: What's your problem?
    Dixon: Nothing, I just don't want to have dinner with your weirdo boyfriend.
    Annie: Well at least he's not some 40 year-old psycho.
