Spoiler: You Ask, I Answer (90210 Edition)

31 03 2009


I don’t understand why Dustin Milligan would want to leave “90210” now. Does he have another show lined up? -Alice
I don’t think leaving the show was really Dustin’s decision. Word is, he was not thrilled to get his walking papers from new exec producer Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair.

Are Annie and Ethan done now? -Steph
Not yet. They start tonight’s episode as a couple… that’s not really talking. But by the end of the hour, Annie will be laying on the hood of a car up at make out point with some other dude.

So this kid Liam is supposed to be the new Dylan McKay? I don’t see it. Dylan is Dylan. The guy would have to be pretty special to be compared to the great McKay -Christa
Shenae Grimes (Annie), who is the only regular cast member that knows the original “90210” well, was skeptical about this Liam is the new Dylan business too. She told me she wasn’t buying it at first, but after seeing Matt Lanter work, she changed her mind. Me? After seeing this evening’s hour, I’m still not convinced, but I’ll give it some time. He doesn’t have to be Dylan reincarnated, I just need him to be interesting, worthy of our attention, you know?

I remember you saying that Liam is going to have relationships with both Naomi and Annie. Is that still the plan? -Kate
Naomi will fall hard for this dude right from the start. And though he completely blows her off tonight and doesn’t seem at all interested, she will win him over. I think he may even be taking her to the prom in May. His relationship with Annie, however, will build slowly. Shenae said Liam sort of challenges Annie. He doesn’t believe that she’s really as nice and sweet as she tries to come off. I guess he antagonizes her a bit and it sounds like the whole dynamic just reeks of sexual tension.

Korbi, Can you just tell us which long running “90210” couple will break up for good by next season? It’s gotta be Silver and Dixon, but not knowing for sure is driving me crazy. -Deanna

All I can say is Silver and Dixon are definitely in for more difficult times. As I first told you back in January, Silver is about to suffer a mental breakdown and her issues with Dixon will set off a major episode tonight. I’ll speak plainly, the girl done lost her mind.

Any news on my favorite “90210” character Navid? -Penn
I don’t think he appears in this evening’s new episode, actually. If he does, it’s briefly. But he’ll be back in a big way soon, don’t worry. Like I said before, he and Adrianna are not done.

Spoiler: Watch with Kristin

30 03 2009

Amanda in Calgary, Alberta, Canada: Kristen Bell was photographed on the set of Gossip Girl this week. Was it just a visit or are we going to actually see our favorite voice-over character in person on the show?
According to our sources, our beloved Kristen Bell is not scheduled to appear onscreen, but the season finale is all about Serena trying to unmask Gossip Girl. Oh dear…that’s probably not going to go so well for S.!

Daniel in Pine Grove, Pa.: Please tell me that Peyton and Baby Leyton will be all right on One Tree Hill!
A baby will be born on the One Tree Hill finale, but whether baby and/or Peyton survive is another question.

YouTube Video of the Week

29 03 2009

This week’s video has two purposes.

First, I wanted to show The O.C.’s Sandy and Kirsten a little love.  They were the first adult teen drama couple viewers really latched on to and became invested in.  They set the groundwork for the adult-oriented storylines we’ve since seen on One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl.

Then with the news that Kirsten’s younger self might be mixed in with the Gossip Girl spin-off, I figured it would be good to revisit The O.C. clip that showed her that way.
