31 01 2009

Today is the last post in the series The Essential Teen Drama Love Triangles.  This week we looked at Beverly Hills 90210, Dawson’s Creek, The O.C., One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl.  And last, but certainly not least…

TODAY: 90210


How It Started: When Annie moves to Beverly Hills, she’s happy to see her one-time crush Ethan.  Her excitement ends when she catches Ethan receiving oral sex at school–and not by his girlfriend Naomi.  Ethan, intrigued now that Annie is back and unhappy with Naomi, breaks up with her.

How It Ended: Ethan’s interest in Annie has to be put on hold when she starts seeing Ty, her co-star in the school musical.  In the meantime, Ethan and Naomi  get back together but when he and Annie work together on a school project, the two grow closer and soon start an exclusive relationship.

Key Episodes: 1.1-1.11

YouTube Evidence: Naomi & Ethan It’s Over; Ethan & Annie Crush


How It Started: When new West Beverly teacher Ryan meets guidance counselor Kelly, he’s instantly attracted to her despite the large age difference.  Kelly is especially hesitant because she is a single parent to Sammy (whose father is Dylan).  Ryan and Kelly go on a few dates before she leaves town to see Dylan.

How It Ended: When Kelly returns, she notices Brenda is giving her the cold shoulder and calls her out on it.  Brenda’s reason: “I slept with Ryan.”  And so the Brenda-Kelly war over a man begins again…

Key Episodes: 1.2-1.4, 1.6, 1.10-1.12

YouTube Evidence: I actually cannot find anything!  Anyone have anything?
